  15. "We are moving to a new domain in January and retiring the existing website, so these problems will be fixed in Jan, but till then, we are not planning to do anything about this"
  17. The server they have the Indian patient data on is also located in the USA – it’s not within Indian jurisdiction:[redacted]
