Privacy Statement

Privacy Statement

I am doing my utmost to ensure your privacy. This means among other things that I will deal with your personal data with due care. Your appointments are kept in my calendar, I receive your emails in my email program (PGP encoding is available) and unauthorized parties do not have access to your data, including your health insurance.

For a proper treatment I have to create file. There is also a legal obligation to do so under the Dutch Medical Treatment Agreement Act (‘WGBO’). In this file I will make notes on your health and data on examinations and treatments. The file is a paper file in order to prevent data leaks.

Sometimes the file may contain data necessary for your treatment and which I have obtained after your explicit consent from other care professionals, e.g. your general practitioner.

As your treating therapist I am the only person who has access to your file. I am legally bound to confidentiality (‘beroepsgeheim’).

The data from your file may also be used in the following ways:

If for any other reason I would like to use your data, I will first inform you and explicitly ask for your consent.

If you wish so, your paper file will be shredded after finishing your therapy. If not, I will keep it for 15 years, as required by the Dutch Medical Treatment Agreement Act.

By booking a consultation you automatically agree with this policy concerning the Dutch General Data Protection regulation (Algemene Verordering Gegevensbescherming).

This Privacy statement is a translation of the original text in Dutch mentioned on this website.  In the event of discrepancies between the two, the Dutch version shall prevail.
