The information is ONLY recorded on your phone and deleted automatically every 28 days.
If you have contracted the virus, you'll be encouraged to change your status on the app. This triggers the app to automatically upload the anonymous data on your phone onto our server via encrypted connection so no one knows who you are.
Once the data is uploaded, UpHealth app automatically goes through each interaction between unique id numbers of your app and others who you've been in contact with and will send them an alert they might have been infected.
