The General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as “GDPR”) will become effective as of 25 May 2018. We at CDI Dental AB are busy setting up our business processes in such a way that we comply with the obligations that we have according to the GDPR. In this letter we would like to inform you about the status of the most important points. What does the GDPR mean for you as our respected customer?
An important point is the so called data processor agreement. The data processor agreement is important when you have data processed by a third party under your responsibility. An agreement has to be made then between the data responsible (you) and the data processor (a third party). Not every party to which you send data is a processor of your data. For example, you do not have to enter into a data processing agreement with us because we carry out an assignment for you and do not taking charge of your data.
CDI Dental AB is treated as an independent healthcare provider within healthcare legislation. We provide part of the care specifically for a patient. Our services are focused on the manufacturing of custom made dental solutions and the support thereof and not on the processing of personal data. We are obliged to process certain personal data for the execution of the assignment. Because we are therefore the responsible party of these data, you do not have to sign a data processing agreement with us.
Another point is the safe communication about dental cases. Because patients have the so called “right to forget", it is necessary that the personal data is easy to remove. In addition, we must ensure that patient data is protected against unauthorized access. For this reason, we are currently working on the implementation of secure alternative means of communication for both e-mail and chat. You will be informed about this soon.
We treat all patient data that you provide to us strictly confidential and use the data only for the purpose of performing proper service to you.
Finally, we will continue to inform you in the coming weeks, about the measures taken to protect personal data, also in the future, so that you are kept informed of the developments within our Company regarding safe data processing.
If you have any further questions regarding the above, you can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
