If you undergo treatment in another Member State, personal data about you are regularly collected, processed and used by healthcare providers such as doctors, and possibly by healthcare insurers. The data protection regulations of the state of treatment apply to the use of your data.
Great importance is attached to the protection of your personal data all over Europe. The data protection regulations of the Member States must satisfy the provisions of European law as set out in EC Directive 95/46/EC. This means that the Member States are to guarantee the protection of the fundamental rights and basic freedoms, and in particular the protection of privacy, when processing personal data. The Directive is to guarantee that the same level of protection applies in all Member States.
We are not able to provide any guidance about how the requirements as to data protection are implemented in the individual Member States. Please note that they may vary from the German data protection regulations.
Please contact the respective National Contact Point if you would like to learn about the data protection regulations in your state of treatment.
