Frequently asked questions

We're here to help with any questions you have about Labfront's privacy and security policies. Don't hesitate to contact us at

Do you offer any privacy and security information for IRBs?
down arrow

Yes, we sure do and we've passed all IRBs since we've been active. You can find our supporting documentation for IRB in this article.

How long is the data going to be saved on the Labfront server?
down arrow

We typically save research data for 3 years after study completion, following the write-up of the results. For relevant studies, Labfront will also be compliant with the NIH Data Management and Sharing (DMS) Policy, effective January 25, 2023. We provide the ability to delete all data if requested by the researcher as well.

Can you provide more information about your privacy and security policies?
down arrow

You may refer to our security and privacy policies which are available below:

1. Labfront Privacy Policy

2. Labfront Terms of Service

3. Security Statement

To give further confidence to our strict policies, we have successfully supported IRB applications with Labfront as part of the study.  In fact, we've passed all IRBs since we've been active . You can find our IRB support documentation here.

Furthermore, Labfront intentionally does not have access to your project’s data or ask participants for their personal information. Instead, we use a unique invite code to connect participants to the platform and your project.

Who owns the physiological data collected from participants?
down arrow

You own your data and we do not access it. Our privacy and security policies are very strict (including not accessing your project data), these standard policies are usually enough to support grant applications, but we can provide additional guidance or information if needed.

Do you have HECVAT (The Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Tool) documentation available?
down arrow

Yes, we have completed the HECVAT form that many higher institutions use. You can contact us at to request the documentation.

Where is the data hosted?
down arrow

We currently only support U.S. data centers and the data is stored in Virginia, America. You can view our privacy and security information here. However,  we're currently working with several institutions outside of the U.S., including Canada, Switzerland and Australia.

Do you provide a EULA?
down arrow

Since the Labfront service includes a variety of applications (eg. mobile app, web dashboard), we provide an all-encompassing Terms of Service instead of a simple EULA. If your institution asks for a EULA, you can link them directly to Labfront's Terms of Service.
