How long will we storage your personal information?

In general, your data will be kept only for the length of time strictly necessary for the purpose for which said data were collected.

The personal data provided, as well as data derived from the health care delivered, are kept only for the storage period appropriate to each case (in accordance with medical and legal criteria); these data will be maintained for a minimum of 10 years as of the date of each care episode, with the exception of cases in which regional and/or specific regulations stipulate that this period must be longer than that mentioned above.

After the aforementioned minimum period has elapsed, and once the care and contractual relationship has concluded, the person in charge of data processing will safeguard the data, duly blocked and pseudo-anonymised, for the legally stipulated period.

The personal data processed for purposes of scientific research shall be maintained, in adherence of retention criteria, for a period not to exceed five years as of the termination of the research. With regard to data processed for purposes of scientific research, the competent regional authorities may, upon request of the data controller and in accordance with established regulatory procedures, order prolonged retention of the entire set of certain data for purposes of historical, statistical, or scientific research in adherence of applicable legislation in each case.

Personal data provided for the purposes of processing information requests, complaints, suggestions, grievances, or the exercising of data-protection rights of any sort, etc., shall be retained for the period necessary to process the request. In all cases the minimum period shall be that which is legally mandated as well as that required to file grievances, exercise rights, or for the defense against such grievances or the exercise of individual rights.

Data processed to comply with legal obligations will be kept for the storage period set forth in applicable legislation.

Data gathered to sign and perform a contract shall be retained for the duration of the contractual relationship as well as the period necessary to file grievances, exercise rights, or for the defense against against such grievances or the exercise of individual rights. This period shall not be less than five years.

Images recorded using video surveillance systems will be retained for a maximum of 30 days, unless the data controller becomes aware of any facts that may be relevant to subsequent legal proceedings.

Personal data processed for the distribution of advertising materials will be retained until the concerned party withdraws his or her consent and/or exercises their right to oppose the retention of such data and/or requests that they be deleted.

Who will receive my personal information?

To properly provide services, certain service providers and/or entities belonging to the Quirónsalud Hospital Group must process data on behalf of the data controller and act as designees for the processing of personal data. By way of example, such designees may be providers of medical services, diagnostic services, clinical testing, audits, entities charged with oversight of physical safety, archiving, information storage or digitization, destruction of documents, legal advisory services, or IT services.

Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties except where there is a legal obligation, vital interest, or prior consent of the party concerned; such disclosure will only take place in the following circumstances, the recipients being those listed below:

a) As a patient may have contracted an insurance policy in which a third party (e.g., insurance providers, mutual benefit associations, public-health authorities, or third parties in cases of civil liability insurance) may be liable for payment of the health services rendered by the facility, provided the patient makes this information known, we may disclose the patient’s personal data to the aforementioned parties so they may manage, authorize, verify, and monitor payment for the care services rendered. The foregoing is legitimized by the requisite management of health-care systems and services as well as the provisions set forth in Law 50/1980 on insurance contracts.

Where a patient has insurance coverage contracted with an entity located outside the European Economic Area[1], (hereinafter, E.E.A.) where legislation concerning data protection is less stringent than that of the European Union, it may be necessary to disclose personal data internationally, provided the patient grants their express prior consent after being informed of the risks involved. We hereby inform you that these disclosures are only made to meet the needs of the patient and facilitate payment for the care services rendered; in short, information is only disclosed to manage payment and verify information with the insurer in the shortest time possible regarding services rendered for patients who have insurance coverage provided by entities based outside of the E.E.A.

Patients who decline to consent to such disclosure of their information may lead to insurer refusal of payment for the services rendered, causing them to be liable for payment given that the entities normally responsible for payment would, under these circumstances, be unable to verify, validate, or monitor billing on the part of the health facility for all care delivered.

b) We also inform you that, due to legal obligations and/or in the vital interest of patients, your personal data may be disclosed to suppliers of medical equipment, prostheses, implants, and providers of ambulance services.

All information that you provide to us will be processed as confidential and in strict compliance with mandatory security measures necessary to prevent access by unauthorized third parties.

In certain circumstances, you may also request the restriction of personal data proccesing, in which case we will only keep these data to file or defend against claims and grievances. Finally, and for reasons related to your particular situation, you can also exercise your right to object and to data portability. Additionally, you may revoke the consent given for your data processing at any time.

Exercise of your rights and withdrawal of consent to process your data are free of charge, except in the cases set forth in art. 12.5 of the Regulation (EU) 679/2016, which may be exercised by completing the questionnaire (download here), in person at the patient answer center of the health facility where their care is rendered, or by mailing a letter to the patient answer center of the individual’s care facility (see mailing addressThis link opens in a popup window) stating that the letter is in reference to "data-protection rights" and attaching a photocopy of the individual’s identity card or equivalent document and indicating the right they wish to exercise.
