Account Sharing

If you choose to share your Account and login credentials be careful that you are not acting in a manner that violates the LifeData Terms of Use, HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (if we have one in place with you), and possibly your study’s security protocol.

Sharing of login information may negate your own HIPAA/GDPR etc. compliance, in addition to violating your Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with LifeData.

You may refer below to excerpts from the applicable Terms of Use and Business Associate Agreement documents. The full Terms of Use is available on our website at You may request a copy of the LifeData BAA by contacting us at
