Privacy declaration

We respect your privacy and ensure that the personal information you provide is treated confidentially. You can read exactly how we do this, and which personal data we collect from you for which purposes. 

 

The use of personal data 

 

For proper treatment it is necessary that I, as your treating therapist, create a file. This is also a legal obligation imposed by the WGBO. Your file contains notes about your state of health and information about the treatments performed.

 

The file also contains information that is necessary for your treatment and that I have requested, after your explicit permission, from another healthcare provider, for example from the general practitioner.

 

I do my best to ensure your privacy. This means, among other things, that I:

  • handle your personal and medical data with care,

  • ensure that unauthorized persons do not have access to your data

 

As your treating therapist, I have sole access to the data in your file. 

I have a legal duty of confidentiality (professional secrecy).

 

The data from your file can be used for the following purposes:

  • To inform other care providers, for example when the therapy has been completed, or when a referral is made to another practitioner. This only happens with your explicit consent.

  • For use during peer review (the data used is anonymized).

  • A small part of the data from your file is used for the financial administration, so that I or my administrator can draw up an invoice.

 

If I want to use your data for another reason, I will first inform you and explicitly ask for your permission.

 

You always have the right to:

  • inspection, correction, addition and destruction of your  file.

  • withdrawing previously granted permission(s).

  • submit a complaint about the treatment to the Dutch Data Protection Authority.

  • there is a right of inspection for next of kin.
     

The data in the client file will be kept for 20 years as required by the law on the treatment agreement.

Privacy invoice 

 

The invoice you receive contains the information requested by the health insurer, so that you can declare this invoice for (partly) reimbursement to your health insurer:
 

  • your name, address and place of residence

  • your date of birth

  • the date of the treatment

  • a brief description of the treatment

  • the cost of the consultation​
