The following guide has been compiled as a resource for participating ProEmpower patients. The purpose is to inform patients about their data processing rights in the context of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
For further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
The processing of patient data in ProEmpower is based on the freely given informed consent of the patient.
The processing of personal data in ProEmpower is necessary for the purpose of care delivery by means of the ProEmpower diabetes management solutions.
The request for consent shall be presented to the patient in a manner which is clearly distinguishable from other matters, in an intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language.
The patient has the right to withdraw consent at any time.* The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Prior to giving consent, the patient shall be informed thereof. It shall be as easy to withdraw as to give consent.
The patient shall be provided information relating to:
This information shall be provided to the patient in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible form, using clear and plain language. The information shall be provided in writing, or by other means, including, where appropriate, by electronic means.
The patient has the right to request for the information to be provided orally.
The patient has the right of access to their data.
The patient has the right to obtain without undue delay and, in any event, within one month of their requests, a copy of the data undergoing processing. The period of one month may be extended by two months depending of the complexity of the request. The patient shall be informed of any such extension within one month of their request.
The copy of the patient’s data shall be provided in a commonly used electronic form, unless otherwise requested.
The patient has the right to request to access their data either verbally or in writing.
The patient has the right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate or incomplete data.
The patient has the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.
The patient has the right, provided the legal conditions for this are met*, to obtain the erasure of their data without undue delay if they withdraw consent for the processing of their data.
The patient has the right to obtain the restriction of processing of their data if:
A patient who has obtained the restriction of processing shall be informed if the restriction of processing is lifted.
The patient has the right to receive their data from the data controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.* They have the right to transmit those data without hindrance to another data controller. Patients have the right to have their data transmitted directly from one data controller to another, where technically feasible.
The patient has the right to object, on grounds relating to their particular situation, at any time to processing of their data. In ProEmpower this right can be exercised through the withdrawal of consent.
The right to object to the processing of data and to withdraw consent shall be brought to the patient’s attention at the time of the first communication with the patient and presented clearly and separately from any other information.
The patient has the right not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling.
The patient has the right to be informed of the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, where it produces legal effects concerning them or similarly significantly affects them.
Meaningful information on automated techniques shall present the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the patient.
The processing of patient data in ProEmpower does not involve automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning the patient or similarly significantly affects the patient.
