Collection and purpose of data processing
Your data is processed on the basis of the treatment contract and legal requirements to fulfill the purpose of the treatment and the associated obligations. On the one hand data is collected by us as part of your treatment. On the other hand we also receive data from other institutions where you have been or are undergoing treatment. Only data relating to your medical treatment will be processed in your medical history. The medical history includes the personal information provided on the patient form as well as informations you provided during your consultation.

Duration of storage
Your medical history will be kept for 10 years after your last treatment. It will then be destroyed.

Disclosure of data
We only transfer your data to external third parties if this is permitted or required by law or if you have consented to the transfer of data as part of your treatment. Data is transferred to insurance companies for the purpose of invoicing the services provided to you. The type of data transmitted is based on the legal requirements.

Data is passed on to authorities on the basis of statutory reporting obligations. Patient and invoice data is passed on to a debt collection agency for the purpose of collecting outstanding debts. In individual cases, depending on your treatment and your corresponding consent, data may be transferred to other authorized recipients.

Revocation of your consent
If you have given your express consent for data processing you can withdraw your consent in whole or in part at any time. The revocation or request to change consent must be made in writing. As soon as we have received your written revocation and the processing cannot be based on any legal basis other than consent, the processing will be discontinued. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Information, inspection and disclosure
You have the right to receive information about your data at any time. You can view your medical history or request a copy. There may be a charge for obtaining a copy.

Right to data transfer
You have the right to have data that we process digitally handed over to you or to a third party in a commonly used format. This also applies in particular to the transfer of medical data to a healthcare professional of your choice. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

Correction of your data
If you discover that your data is incorrect or incomplete you can request that it be corrected.
