Personal data we collect:

Hyperdive Ltd. aims to provide you with the best possible service. To do this we must keep records about you, your health and the care we have provided, as well as details on how to contact you. These may be stored in paper or electronic form. This information forms your medical record, which includes personal data. Personal data is any data that could identify you as an individual. This may be given through an enquiry as a potential customer, or through your interaction as a registered patient. Personal data may be provided by a telephone call, email or on completing a form.

Personal data you give to us may include (but is not limited to):

  • your name and title

  • contact information, eg. telephone number, email and postal address

  • photographic identification

  • the content of any enquiry submitted via our website

  • web usage information, eg. IP address

How we use your personal data:

Everything we do with your personal data counts as “processing” it, including collecting, storing, amending, transferring and deleting it. Under the GDPR we control and/or process any personal information about you electronically using the following lawful bases: consent and legitimate interest. If, as determined by us, the lawful basis upon which we process your personal information changes, we will notify you about the change and any new lawful basis to be used if required. We shall stop processing your personal information if the lawful basis used is no longer relevant.

We may use the data you provide to:

  • communicate with you, eg. using contact details such as the email address or phone number supplied by you via online forms

  • communicate with other appropriate medical professionals, eg. when seeking advice or opinions from relevant consultants or specialists

  • operate our business more effectively, eg. by asking you for feedback to help us improve our service

We will not sell or distribute your information to third parties, unless we have your permission, or we are under a legal obligation to do so.

How we keep your personal data secure:

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard your personal data. These include:

  • access limited to those with a genuine and demonstrable need, which for the vast majority of the time is just the doctor;

  • secure storage of all records – those in paper form are kept in locked cabinets, whilst electronic records are password protected on a firewalled server which is automatically backed up to two separate physical locations for redundancy;

  • industry standard anti-virus software on all computers with access to records.

Policies and procedures are in place to deal with any suspected data breach so that any loss of data, or consequential damage, is minimised.

How long we keep personal data:

Current legislation requires retention of medical records for a minimum of seven years. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. We will not store your information for longer than is reasonably necessary or required by law.

Your information will be kept securely at all times and at the end of the retention period, your files and personal data will be permanently deleted or destroyed.
