Mediq and your personal data

By visiting our website or by being a customer of Mediq, you share all kinds of personal data with us. This includes information when you order online or when you contact our customer service centre. You can be confident that we will treat your personal data with care. Below we explain more about how Mediq treats your personal data. If you have any further questions, please contact us.

Privacy Statement

  • What is personal data?
    Personal data is information that identifies you or tells something about you directly or can be traced back to you. There are many types of personal data. This includes your name, address or email address, as well as your computer's IP address. Personal data refers to all information that can be associated with you. Special information, such as someone's race, religion or medical history, is considered ‘sensitive personal data’.
  • Your medical information is sensitive personal data
    Information about somebody's health is particularly sensitive. For this reason, Mediq's privacy policy specifies that all patient data must be treated as sensitive personal data. This sensitive personal data is granted additional protection by the legislator, and we are only permitted to process this sensitive personal data if we comply with special conditions. This not only applies to medical data collected and recorded by doctors, but to any information about a person's physical or mental health.
  • How Mediq looks after your personal data
    Mediq stores your personal data to the extent necessary to provide services to you and to the extent necessary or permitted by law. Personal data that is no longer needed is deleted as quickly as possible. Mediq uses secure and legally approved systems to protect your personal data against loss or any form of unlawful processing.
  • With whom does Mediq share your personal data?
    Mediq takes great care when processing your personal data. In the first instance, your personal data is only available to Mediq. However, it is sometimes necessary for us to share your personal data with other care providers, such as your treatment provider, family doctor or health insurance provider. Therefore be situations in which it is necessary to link your personal data with and monitor it alongside your personal data held with other healthcare partners.

    We also use your personal data to perform analyses to improve the services we provide to you or, for example, to contact you if there is a change to your order or to the delivery time of an order.

    Furthermore, Mediq uses your personal data - insofar as permitted by law - to inform you about products and/or services provided by companies affiliated with Mediq and which may be of interest to you.

    We can also provide general information about Mediq and the various treatment areas in which we operate and which we think are relevant to you. In principle, you will only receive this information if you have given your prior consent for this.

    You may declare at any time that you do not (or no longer) wish to receive commercial information. To do this, please contact privacy@mediq.com. We will then stop sending information to you. Note that it may take some time to process your request.

    Please note: if you withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data, we will no longer be able to serve you as one of our customers.
  • Data Processing Agreement
    A data processing agreement (DPA) is the agreement between the controller and the processor which determines how the processor handles the personal data. Mediq (the controller) and an IT service provider (the processor), for example, will in all cases conclude a written agreement with an external partner before any personal data can be distributed. Mediq is responsible for ensuring that this Is done. In short, every external party with which we do business and with which personal data is processed has a separate agreement with Mediq which meets the legal requirements.
  • Do you want us to modify or delete your personal data?
    You can contact us at any time to request to view your personal data and/or to modify, supplement, delete or restrict your personal data if it is factually incorrect, incomplete or irrelevant. You may also object to the processing of your personal data. To have your personal data modified or deleted, contact us at privacy@mediq.com.
  • New Rights Also Guaranteed within Mediq
    The EU General Data Protection Regulation has also introduced new rights: the right to be forgotten and the right to data portability. You may also benefit from these new rights. We will do our utmost to fulfil your request within a reasonable time.
  • Our employees have signed a confidentiality agreement
    Our employees who work with medical information are bound by a duty of confidentiality. This means that, as a matter of course, no patient data may be shared with others. Treatment providers with whom we are in contact and employees of healthcare institutions are bound by a duty of confidentiality based on their professional code of conduct. As a result, only the people who are directly involved in organising your care may view your personal data, and they will handle this personal data in a confidential manner.
