4. Transmission of personal data:

Your personal data may be transferred to our partners (third parties) if this is necessary for the provision of the services offered by the Company or for other legitimate reasons. If we transfer your data to external providers, technical and organizational measures will be taken to ensure that such transmissions comply with the legal provisions on data protection. If you provide us with your personal data, we undertake not to use, process or transmit it beyond what is permitted by law or by your consent. For this reason, we only pass on your data to external suppliers if this is necessary for the processing of appointments or for storage purposes and if this meets the strict requirements of confidentiality and diligence. Beyond this, we will only transfer your data to third parties if we are legally obliged to do so or if we are ordered to do so by the authorities or the authorities’ courts.

6. Data retention: 

The User’s data shall be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the performance of the service offered by DOCADOM. The duration may vary depending on the type of data concerned and the applicable legal requirements. 

Personal data are collected as part of the contractual relationship between DOCAOM and the User. This data is kept for the duration of the contractual relationship, as long as a User’s account is active, and is then archived for the legal retention period.

Data collected on the basis of User consent is retained until the User revokes consent. 

Personal data collected for the Company’s legitimate interests (market research, legal purposes or to improve services,) is retained for as long as necessary to achieve those purposes.

The Company may also need to keep the User’s personal data for a longer period of time, if this is necessary to comply with a legal obligation (e.g. accounting rules or tax law), by order of an authority or in the context of a legal proceeding. Certain information relating in particular to the contractual relationship must be kept for at least 10 years and certain data relating to care services for at least 20 years.

The retention periods for personal data are determined solely by the Company in its capacity as Data Processor. In the case of processing carried out as a Sub-processor, the Company acts only on the instructions of the Processors and does not determine the retention period itself. If you have any questions about the duration of the storage of personal data for which DOCADOM acts as a Processor, you are advised to contact your Doctor, the Data Processor, directly. In view of the legal filing obligations for Healthcare Professionals, they may store Users’ Personal Data on their own tools for longer periods than those indicated above in order to ensure that Patients receive optimum medical follow-up and care.
