The data will be used for research to learn more about tick migration, outbreaks, hotspots, etc. The LivLyme TickTracker research team will analyze this data on its own & in partnership with scientists, researchers, & clinicians approved by the LivLyme Foundation.
The LivLyme Foundation will provide information about its findings to the public through publications of white papers, peer reviewed articles, our website & alerts on your smart phones.
The data we display is from the data we collect live via the app. It along with several other vetted/trusted data sources is used to help display a tick severity index in your local area with the overall goal of education and prevention of tick-borne diseases.
We will not sell your personal information, however, we will share your tick sighting and biting information in order to help us display TickTracker’s Tick Severity Index. We also may share the information you sent us about the sighting or bite with other sources in order to collaborate with the scientific and technology community to better educate everyone on the current and potential future threat of ticks in your geographic area or geographic areas you visit or plan to visit.
