Provision of your personal data to third parties
Physiotherapy Radier has the obligation to treat your personal data confidentially. This means, for example, that the healthcare provider requires your explicit consent to provide your personal data. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. On the basis of a statutory provision, the care provider’s obligation to remain silent can be interrupted, but also when there is a serious threat to your health or that of a third party. In addition, recorded data can, if necessary, be exchanged orally, in writing or digitally with other care providers (for example, the general practitioner).
