System C Healthcare Limited of the Maidstone Studios, Vinters Business Park, New Cut Road, Maidstone, Kent, ME14 5NZ ("we"/"us"/"our") is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
Scope of Policy
This policy sets out how we use and protect any information about you.
For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and any additional data protection legislation, the data controller responsible for your personal data is the healthcare provider who uses our products and services to deliver care and treatment to you (Data Controller).
We collect certain information and data about you whenever we provide our services or you use our patient portal or any of our mobile apps.
- Information by which you can be identified.
- Questions, queries or feedback you leave, including your email address and mobile number if you provide it to us.
- Details that allow you to access NHS services (you will always be told when this information is being collected, and it will only be used for the purpose you provide it for).
- Personal Data (including Special Category Data) which will be used for your direct care and treatment.
Keeping your data secure
We will always treat the information you send us with the strictest confidence and ensure that our products and services meet all relevant security standards. However the World Wide Web is not completely secure and it is important that you are aware accessing or transmitting any data over the internet carries a risk and that we cannot guarantee the security of it. It is possible, though very unlikely, that someone other than you or us could access and read information sent to us or received from us in this way. If you feel concerned about this, please use another form of contact, e.g. telephone or post.
We have procedures and security features in place to keep your data secure once we receive it and in any electronic responses back to you.
Where your data is stored
Data collected as part of our services will be stored in accordance with the Data Controller’ instructions.
Data you provide to us when using our patient portal or mobile apps is stored on Microsoft® HealthVault™ or the Microsoft© Azure™ cloud platform’s secure servers in the United Kingdom.
Controlling your personal information
We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal identifiable information to third parties without your express permission.
Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data including the right to:
- request access to, deletion of or correction of, your personal data;
- request your personal data be transferred to another person; and
- complain to a supervisory authority.
For the avoidance of doubt, you may request access to medical records held about you under the Data Protection Act 2018.
To exercise any of these rights you must contact the Data Controller.
What do we do with the information we gather?
We require Personal Data to understand your needs and provide you with a better service.
Special Category Data is collected so that it will be available, as necessary and in a timely way, to enable members of your care team to safely and effectively treat and care for you.
The lawful basis for us processing your Personal Data and Special Category Data is the management of health and social care systems and services.
Who is your information shared with?
We will only share your information with the Data Controller.
In addition, we may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are required to do so by law or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights, property or personal safety of us, or any of our products or services.
How long do we keep your information for?
We will only store your information in accordance with the Data Controller’s instructions and we will not hold your data for any longer than is necessary.
