the protection of your personal data is important to us. According to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we are obliged to inform you about the purpose for which our practice collects, stores or forwards data. The information also tells you what rights you have in terms of data protection.
1. Responsibility for data processing
Responsible for data processing is:
Praxis Mey, Dr. med. Nadja Mey, Dorfstrasse 32a, 430667 Meerbusch.
2. Purpose of data processing
If you come to us in person, data processing is carried out on the basis of legal requirements in order to fulfil the treatment contract between you and your doctor and the associated obligations.
For this purpose, we process your personal data, in particular your health data. This includes medical histories, diagnoses, therapy suggestions and findings that we or other doctors collect. For these purposes, other doctors or psychotherapists with whom you are receiving treatment may also provide us with data (e.g. in doctor’s letters, X-rays).
The collection of health data is a prerequisite for your treatment. If the necessary information is not provided, careful treatment cannot take place.
3. Recipients of your data
We will only transfer your personal data to third parties if this is permitted by law or you have consented.
Recipients of your personal data may primarily be other doctors / dentists / psychotherapists, health insurance companies, the medical service of the health insurance, medical laboratories, medical associations and private medical clearing houses.
The transmission is mainly for the purpose of billing for the services provided to you, for clarifying medical questions and questions arising from your insurance relationship. In individual cases, data may be transmitted to other authorised recipients.
4. Storage of your data
We only keep your personal data for as long as is necessary to carry out the treatment. Due to legal requirements, we are obliged to keep this data for at least 10 years after completion of the treatment. Under other regulations, longer retention periods may apply, for example 30 years for X-ray records according to section 28(3) of the X-ray Ordinance.
5. Your rights
You have the right to obtain information about the personal data concerning you. You can also request the correction of incorrect data.
In addition, under certain conditions, you have the right to have data deleted, the right to restrict data processing and the right to data portability.
The processing of your data is based on legal regulations. Only in exceptional cases do we require your consent. In these cases, you have the right to revoke your consent for future processing.
You also have the right to complain to the competent data protection supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data is not lawful.
The address of the supervisory authority responsible for us is:
