CLIENT INFORMATION ON DATA PROTECTION
The protection of data related to your person is important to us. According to the General Data Protection Regulations, we will inform you below about how our practice collects, saves or passes on data, and what rights you have.
RESPONSIBILITY FOR DATA PROCESSING
The person responsible for processing data is:
Jennelle Liljestrand; Rumfordstraße 5, 80469 München
firstname.lastname@example.org; 0177 976 85 86 PURPOSE OF DATA PROCESSING
The processing of your data follows legal requirements in order to fulfil the duties connected to the therapy contract between you and your psychotherapist.
I process your personal data, especially data related to your health. Such information includes your medical history, diagnoses, therapy suggestions and any findings, which I or other psychotherapists or doctors collect. To this end other doctors or psychotherapists, who are treating you, may make data available to me (e.g. in doctor’s reports), if you waive them of confidentiality.
The collection of information about your health is necessary for your treatment. If the necessary information is not provided, a carefully planned treatment cannot take place.
RECIPIENTS OF YOUR DATA
We only pass your personal data onto third parties if it is legally allowed (e.g. due to acute danger to yourself or others) or if you have consented.
People who receive the data are likely to be other doctors or psychotherapists, health service providers or in the case of unpaid bills also lawyers and legal institutions. When you establish contact between me and your health service provider, this is considered to show your consent to pass on information about your health, which is necessary to establish the necessity and the approval of the therapy or its prolongation.
The information is passed on mainly to clarify medical questions or questions which result from your relationship with your insurance company. In individual cases information is passed on to other valid recipients.
COMMUNICATION VIA INTERNET
When sending and receiving information from you via the internet (i.e. E-Mail) it is important to consider that third parties may be able to read it. In order to protect your data you may choose to use encryption with your email provider for the reception and sending of emails. My measures to
encrypt emails only protect the connection between my email account and the server but not the connection between the server and your email account. To offer you the best possible level of security for email, I have an additional email account (email@example.com). If you have an email account with Protonmail, I believe you have the best possibility to try to ensure that no one except me is able to read your emails. Should you have opted to receive bills via email, you may revoke this at any time and opt for receiving bills on paper or via Protonmail.
SAVING YOUR DATA
We keep your data only as long as it is necessary to do so for the treatment. We are obliged by law to retain the data for at least 10 years beyond the end of treatment. Invoices, according to the requirements of the Finanzamt, are kept for thirteen years.
You have the right to information about the collected data which pertains to you. You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected. Beyond this under certain circumstances you have the right to the deletion of your data, the right to limit how the data is processed as well as the right to have data passed on. The processing of your data follows legal requirements. Only under exceptional circumstances do we require your consent. In these cases you have the right to revoke your consent for future processing of your data.
You also have the right to complain to the appropriate Aufsichtsbehörde für den Datenschutz should you believe that the processing of your personal data has not occurred in accordance with the legal requirements. The postal address for the appropriate Aufsichtsbehörde is:
Bayerischer Landesbeauftragter für den Datenschutz – Postfach 22 12 19 – 80502 München. Additional contact details are: Wagmüllerstraße 18 – 80538 München – Tel.: 089 212672-0
E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org https://www.datenschutz-bayern.de/vorstell impressum.html
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Artikel 9 Absatz 2 lit. h) DSGVO in Verbindung mit Paragraf 22 Absatz 1 Nr. 1 lit. b) Bundesdatenschutzgesetz. Should you have any questions about this, please just ask me.
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
