Your medical personal data will only be processed, stored, and retained on the basis of your explicit consent. Your personal data will be processed, because this is necessary for the performance of the agreement between you and us. In addition to this, personal data may be processed for another legitimate interest, such as providing you with information about current events or changes in our services.

Personal data may also be processed by visiting the section https://stichtingpositiefwelzijn/covid-19-testen/ on this website to schedule an appointment to test for COVID-19, if you have given your consent.

Necessity of processing

The processing of your personal data is necessary in order to carry out the services. The services offered by SPW cannot be fully performed without the processing of your personal data. If your explicit consent is required for specific purposes relating to the personal data, you must give your separate consent.

Automated decision-making

There is no automated decision-making applied.

Retention period

The personal data processed by SPW will be stored in accordance with the relevant laws and regulations. If a longer retention period is necessary on the grounds of legislation or regulations, the personal data will be retained for longer in accordance with these requirements. All medical personal data will be retained for no longer than two weeks from the date of result (date of outcome).

Processing by third parties

SPW only shares personal data with third parties if this is strictly necessary for the performance of a contract and to comply with relevant laws and regulations. No personal data are sold. SPW may be under a legal obligation to share personal data with third parties. If personal data is shared with third parties, processing agreements are concluded for this purpose. The third parties with whom personal data is shared are:

  • GGD (in case of a positive result), for the purpose of the justified interest and on the basis of a legal obligation. The categories of personal data that are processed are contact, name, and address details.

Security of personal data

SPW takes the protection of your personal data seriously and takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a risk-appropriate level of security. This is done while taking into account the state of the art, the implementation costs, the risks to the rights and freedom of individuals (which can vary in terms of probability and severity), as well as the nature, scope, context and processing purposes.

Under 16 years of age

If you are a minor, i.e. under the age of 16, you may only consent to the processing of your personal data with the consent of one of your parents or legal guardian. It is then important that your parent(s) or your guardian reads this privacy statement. They can also exercise the rights you have with regard to the personal data you leave with us, such as the right to oppose the (further) processing of your personal data or the right to inspect and correct your data.
