Privacy declaration (open as PDF in new window)
Kitty Folmer/ Practice Kitty Folmer is responsible for the processing of personal data as shown in this privacy statement. Personal data is processed carefully in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from May 25, 2018.
For proper treatment, it is necessary that I, as your treating therapist, create a file. This is also a legal obligation imposed by the Medical Treatment Agreement Act (WGBO/Wkkgz). Your file contains notes about your health status and information about the examinations and treatments performed.
The file also includes information that is necessary for your treatment and that, after your explicit permission, I have requested from another healthcare provider, such as your GP.
I do my best to guarantee your privacy. This means, among other things, that I:
• Handle your personal and medical data with care,
• Make sure that unauthorized persons do not have access to your data.
As your treating therapist, I am the only one who has access to the data in your file.
I have a legal obligation of confidentiality (medical professional secrecy).
The data from your file can also be used for the following purposes:
• To inform other healthcare providers, for example when therapy has been completed or in the event of a referral to another practitioner. This only happens with your explicit (written) permission.
• For use in observation during my absence.
• For anonymized use during peer review.
• 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 I want to use your data for another reason, I will first inform you and explicitly ask for your permission.
You have the right to inspect your client file at any time.
You have the right to have your data deleted at any time.
The data in your client file will be kept for 20 years, as required by law (WGBO).
