What is personal data?

Personal data is information that identifies you, or tells something about you or can be directly traced back to you. There are many types of personal data. This includes your name, address or email address, as well as your computer's IP address. Personal data refers to all information that can be associated with you. Special information, such as someone's race, religion or medical history, is considered ‘sensitive personal data’.


Your medical information is sensitive personal data

Information about somebody's health is particularly sensitive. For this reason, Mediq's privacy policy specifies that all patient data must be treated as sensitive personal data. This sensitive personal data is granted additional protection by the legislator, and we are only permitted to process this sensitive personal data if we comply with special conditions. This not only applies to medical data collected and recorded by doctors, but to any information about a person's physical or mental health.


How Mediq looks after your personal data

Mediq stores your personal data to the extent necessary to provide services to you and to the extent necessary or as permitted by law. Personal data that is no longer needed is deleted as quickly as possible. Mediq uses secure and legally approved systems to protect your personal data against loss or any form of unlawful processing.


How does Mediq process your personal data?

We need your personal data to provide you with the best possible advice about our products and services, and to ensure that the selling and purchasing process runs as smoothly as possible for these products and services. From a legal perspective, processing data is a broad concept. Processing comprises all actions that can be performed with personal data. For example, Mediq processes personal data by collecting, storing, modifying, accessing, making use of and disclosing personal data by forwarding or destroying said data.
