Privacy policy

This is the privacy policy of this medical practice (hereinafter we, us). The following privacy policy applies to the use of our website as well as our offered medical services (in particular your treatment/examination with us). This privacy policy informs you as a patient (hereinafter you) or visitor of our website about the collection of personal data during the use of our website and our services. By using this website, you consent to the processing of your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

In principle, our medical practice offers its services in Switzerland and is aimed at persons residing in Switzerland.

Contact details
Your data will be processed by us. Contact person (co-responsible person) about the purpose and means of processing on our part is:

Please submit your inquiries in writing or by e-mail to the respective address above.

Data acquisition
Personal data is collected that you or your doctor provide to us e.g. through the documents of assignment by your doctor, by filling in the registration form, telling the patient's story.
Certain types of personal data are considered "sensitive" under data protection law, e.g. health data such as symptom descriptions, diagnoses, laboratory results, medications and others, as well as biometric characteristics. Depending on the constellation, other categories of personal data mentioned may also include such particularly sensitive personal data (e.g. information on religious affiliation in the master data for your treatment needs). As a rule, we only process particularly sensitive personal data if it is necessary for the provision of a service, if you have provided us with this data of your own accord or if you have consented to the processing vis-à-vis us or your referring physician. We assume that you have given your consent if we receive data from your referring physician. We may also process particularly sensitive personal data if this is necessary to uphold the law or to comply with domestic or foreign legal provisions, if the data concerned has obviously been disclosed to the public by the person concerned or if the applicable law otherwise permits its processing.
Every time the website is accessed, data is collected that is technically necessary. For example, the browser types used, the operating system used, the date and time of an access, an Internet protocol address (IP address), name and URL of the retrieved file may be collected. If you have subscribed to our newsletter, we use e-mail and name for dispatch by a specialized company. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time (link in each newsletter).

Data processing purposes
Your data will be processed for the purposes of fulfilling our services. In addition, there are other purposes:

  • For the purpose of communicating with you, e.g. responding to inquiries
  • To manage contractual relationships, e.g., to provide medical, radiological and pharmaceutical services
  • For the functioning of practice operations such as IT, websites, newsletters, accounting, etc.
  • To maintain the customer relationship
  • So that action is taken in accordance with the law, industry standards, etc.
  • For legal proceedings or investigations
  • To ensure the safety
  • For the administrative actions and management
  • For the instructions, further education and training of employees, who are in principle subject to the duty of confidentiality

Duration of storage
Your data will be kept for 20 years since your last treatment. The retention period is a mandatory legal obligation of the doctor and cannot be changed.

Disclosure of data to third parties and processors
To the extent necessary for the operation of our medical services (in particular for your benefit), we disclose data to the companies entrusted with the operation and processing of the services provided by us. When processing your data, they may be disclosed to the following third parties:

  • Pre- and post-treatment physicians and hospitals on request
  • Scientific circles (such as tumor boards)
  • Health insurance funds and insurance companies in particular for the assessment of benefit obligations
  • Group companies and their employees insofar as they are subject to a duty of confidentiality
  • Service providers (who process your data partly on our behalf, such as IT/web providers, support companies, and partly on their own responsibility, such as laboratories for examinations or lawyers for legal issues).
  • Authorities at home and abroad due to legal obligations

The respective service providers are bound to our standards under data protection law via legal provisions, a contract for commissioned processing, or on the basis of contractual provisions, or are authorized to process personal data via the use of standard contractual clauses recognized by the FDPIC.

Disclosure of data abroad
It is possible that your data will be transferred to the countries of the EEA within the scope of legal or contractual processing (e.g. IT support of radiological equipment) and will be processed and stored there and, in exceptional cases, to any country in the world. In doing so, we take into consideration that the respective country has sufficient data protection. If your data is transferred, processed and stored in a country without sufficient data protection, this is done on the basis of contractual guarantees, which are reported to the FDPIC. However, standard contractual clauses drawn up or recognized by the FDPIC are used, which is why the notification requirement does not apply.

Revocation or limitation of your consent
You have the right to withdraw or limit your consent. Such a change is valid if it is made in writing (not by e-mail) and applies from receipt for the processing of data in the future. Rights not based on consent (e.g. legal or contractual rights) remain unaffected by the revocation.

Cookies and other services
Our medical practice may use cookies on its website. Cookies contain a so-called cookie ID, a unique identifier of the cookie, which assigns web pages and servers to a specific Internet browser. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified via this unique cookie ID.

Data security
To ensure your rights, your data is protected against unauthorized access, changes and loss. We use technical and organizational measures (e.g. access restrictions or back-ups) for this purpose. The technical and organizational measures to be selected are generally based on the risk. The requirements for data security in accordance with the Data Protection Act (DSG) and the Data Protection Ordinance (DSV) are observed.
You acknowledge and agree that we may exchange data with you via email or SMS without encryption.

Your rights
Based on the Data Protection Act, you have various rights, such as the right to information. To assert your rights, please contact us.

Applicable law and place of jurisdiction
This Privacy Policy and the contracts concluded based on or in connection with this Privacy Policy are governed by Swiss law, excluding any conflict of law provisions. The place of jurisdiction is at the registered office of the medical practice.

Final provisions
Should individual parts of this data protection declaration be invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the rest of the data protection declaration. We can adapt this data protection declaration at any time without prior notice. The current version published on our website shall apply. Insofar as the data protection declaration is part of an agreement with you, we will inform you of the change by e-mail or other suitable means in the event of an update.
