Your privacy in the context of the new AVG legislation
This page was last modified on 25-05-2018.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (AVG) will become applicable on 25 May 2018 and will require, among other things, certain adjustments to the way in which organizations process personal data of persons within the EU. Soulsence has made the necessary adjustments to comply with this law.
For proper treatment it is necessary that I, as your treating therapist, submit a file. This is also a legal obligation imposed by the WGBO. Your file contains notes about your health status and details about the treatments.
The file also contains information that is necessary for your treatment, such as a referral by a general practitioner or medical specialist, after your explicit permission. Also in the case of requesting information from another healthcare provider, for example from the general practitioner, this is only possible after your explicit permission.
We do our best to ensure your privacy. This means, among other things, that we handle your personal and medical details with care and ensure that unauthorized persons do not have access to your details.
As your treating therapist, I have sole access to the data in your file. I have a legal confidentiality obligation (professional secrecy).
The data from your file can also be used for the following purposes:
- To inform other healthcare providers, for example when the therapy has been completed or when referring to another practitioner. This only happens with your explicit permission.
- For use for observation, during my absence.
- For anonymized use during peer evaluation.
- A small part of the data from your file is used for financial administration, so that I or my administrator can prepare an invoice.
If for any other reason I want to make use of your data, I will first inform you and explicitly request your permission. This data in the client file is retained for 15 years as required by the law on the treatment agreement.
Privacy on the healthcare bill
The health care bill that you receive contains the information requested by the health care insurer, so that you can declare this bill to your health care insurer.
- Your name, address, and place of residence;
- your date of birth;
- the date of treatment;
- a brief description of the treatment, such as “hypnotherapy treatment”;
- the cost of the consultation.
