Patient information on data protection

Dear Patient,

In order to detect indications of a possible Covid 19 infection and to treat it, thus providing you with the best possible care, examinations by means of a smear test are necessary. The majority of these tests take place in our in-house laboratory. However, depending on the clinical problem, it may be necessary to have the corresponding examinations carried out in external laboratories by order referral. You can ask for a detailed list of the external laboratories during your consultation with the doctor or in the waiting room.

Information and consent for the detection of SARS-Cov-2 RNA (PCR) by taking a throat and nasopharyngeal swab.

By ticking the confirmation box ("I consent to the collection, processing and use of my personal data as described in the Privacy Statement of CBT."), I declare in detail:

  • I consent to the taking of a sample by means of a swab inserted into my throat/nose (pharyngeal swab). I am aware that, even with the greatest care, injuries such as slight bleeding or irritation may occur in individual cases. In this awareness, I expressly consent to the sample collection being carried out as described above.
  • I am aware that in the event of a positive test result I must immediately go into domestic quarantine.
  • In the event of a positive test result, I agree that my positive test result together with my personal data provided at the time of registration will be reported to the competent health authority in accordance with the legal requirements.
  • I am aware that my health insurance company will not cover the cost of the test because I am symptom-free, my testing is not prescribed and I will accordingly bear the costs myself.
  • I am also aware that a negative test result does not exclude covid-19 infection with certainty, but represents an infection status at the time the test was carried out. A negative test result indicates the infection status at the time the test was performed and thus that there was no viral load or a viral load below the detection limit at that time.

Consent form for online retrieval of the test result

I hereby consent in accordance with Art. 9 para 2 .lit. a DSGVO that CBT as controller and its technical service provider FORSIT as processor within the meaning of the DSGVO process, store and exclusively make accessible to the test person via QR Code/SMS my following personal data: First and last name, mobile phone number, e-mail address, full residential address (street, house number, postcode, city, country), date of birth, identity card number (if provided), result PCR test
The purpose of this processing is the secure and fast transmission of the test result (negative / positive / no result) to the data subject. For this purpose, as soon as the test result is available and ready for retrieval, the data subject receives an SMS (to the participant's cell phone number provided during the booking process) with a link that gives him exclusive access to the test result including the name of the test person. The link is then valid for 14 days and cannot be accessed afterwards.
In the event of a positive test, this does not affect the obligation to report to the local health authority by the operator of the test centre, which is based on the legal obligation according to IFSG §6 paragraph 1, sentence 1, number 1, t.

Information on the collection of personal data

The collection and processing of your personal data serves the purpose of your treatment and is a prerequisite for optimal medical care.

The data is protected not only by the technology used with a high security standard but also by numerous laws. In addition, medical confidentiality applies to all CBT employees in accordance with §203 of the German Criminal Code (StGB).

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data by which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
CBT - Centre for Blood Coagulation Disorders and Transfusion Medicine
Management: PD Dr. med. Johannes Kruppenbacher

Telephone: +49 2 28 20180-0
E-mail: info@cbtmed.de
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, or similar).

Storage period

Unless a more specific retention period has been stated within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted after these reasons cease to apply.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
If the data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. E or F DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) of the GDPR). If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO)

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, deletion and correction

You have the right, within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to have this data corrected or deleted. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the above address.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure. If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have lodged an objection under Article 21(1) of the GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
