The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the current privacy regulation under EU law that protects data. Under this law any organisation that processes data has certain obligations and the person whose data is processed has certain rights. As a patient you have rights and Avisina must comply with certain regulations. These are explained below.
The purpose for which Avisina processes data
Avisina processes your personal data in order to provide you services in accordance with the Wet op de Geneeskundige Behandelingsovereenkomst (WGBO, Medical Treatment Contracts Act) and in line with the GDPR. Your data is also processed for the financial procedures. At your request, certain data is used for the purpose of contacting you by telephone or email and/or to contact you in writing (by post/email) should you not be reachable by telephone.
Avisina will not share your data with third parties outside its service provision and the financial processing unless it is obliged to do so by law. The data is processed within the European Economic Zone (EEZ).
In order to provide its services adequately, Avisina processes the following data:
