5. Privacy Policy

The processing of personal data is carried out carefully in accordance with the requirements set by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). For proper treatment, it is necessary for me, as your treating therapist, to create a client record. This is also a legal obligation imposed by the Medical Treatment Contracts Act (WGBO/Wkkgz). Your record contains notes about your health condition and data about the conducted examinations and treatments in order to offer good and efficient service.

The record also includes data that is necessary for your treatment and that I might need to  request from another healthcare provider, with your explicit consent, such as your general practitioner.

I do my best to safeguard your privacy, including:

  • Handling your personal and medical data with care.

  • Ensuring that unauthorized parties do not have access to your data.

  • I have a legal duty of confidentiality (medical professional secrecy).

The data from your record may also be used for the following purposes:

  • To inform other healthcare providers, for example, when the therapy is completed or when referring to another practitioner. This will only be done with your explicit (written) consent.

  • For use during my absence for observation purposes.

  • For anonymized use during peer review.

  • A small part of the data from your record is used for financial administration purposes, so that I or my administrator can go through with the process of making an invoice, billing, payment control and scheduling appointments.

  • If I want to use your data for any other reason, I will inform you first and explicitly request your consent.

You have the right to access your client record at any time.

The data in your client record is kept for 20 years, as required by law (WGBO).

As a therapist, I record the following data at the start of a treatment:

• name, address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, occupation, marital status

• insurance policy number if reimbursement is desired

• general practitioner's details and other relevant healthcare providers (if needed)

• relevant health data, such as medical history, complaints, medication, nutrition, lifestyle habits, and the progress of therapy

  • relevant (requested medical) data and laboratory results, as well as records from other relevant healthcare providers (if needed).

 

Disclosure to Third Parties

In the context of our service provision, personal data may be disclosed to third parties. For the aforementioned purposes, third-party services such as our administration office or other third parties involved in the treatment trajectory may be used. These third parties are only allowed to process your personal data for the aforementioned purposes. Your personal data may also be disclosed in the context of legal obligations or court orders. We will not provide your data for commercial or charitable purposes.

 

Data Retention

Duty to Keep Records

The main rule for keeping medical records is stated in the WGBO (Wet op de Geneeskundige BehandelingsOvereenkomst). This period is 20 years, calculated from the date of recording of each individual data. The term may be longer if necessary due to the treatment, for example, in the case of chronic diseases.

 

Professional Secrecy

According to patient rights under the WGBO, capable minors between 12-16 years old and parents have authority. Parents of minors up to 16 years old have joint decision-making rights over the treatment. Parents have the right to information and access to the dossier when linked to the joint decision-making right for treatment. There is an exception to this right of access, namely when the professional believes that exercising certain patient rights goes against the patient's interests.

 

Retention Period

Based on the Medical Treatment Contracts Act (WGBO), we are obliged as a healthcare provider to maintain a medical record for the following purposes:

  • Handling your payment

  • Being able to call or email you when necessary to perform our service. For example: Making and scheduling appointments for consultations. Contacting you in response to a request via the website or other means

  • Informing you about changes to our services and products

  • Identification when you want to delete or adjust your data

  • Enforcement of a contract or transferring a claim for enforcement of a contract

  • Conducting legal proceedings

  • If we are legally obliged to do so, for example for our tax data.

 

Your Rights

You have the right to request access to your personal data. Upon receipt of your request, you will receive an overview of your personal data within 1 month. If inaccuracies are found, you can request to adjust, supplement, delete, or shield your data.

You can also request the transfer of your personal data or object to the processing of your personal data due to special personal circumstances.

Questions about this privacy statement or a request regarding the processing of your personal data can be sent to albertgarciaordinas@gmail.com, addressed to Albert Garcia Ordinas.

If you have a complaint about the processing of your personal data, please let us know. If you cannot resolve the issue with us, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the privacy supervisory authority, the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens).
