Data Protection

Public Statement

At Unilabs, we CARE BIG. This means that it is part of our culture to protect what our customers care the most about, of course this includes their personal data. We have always treated personal data with the highest level of security within our organisation and by complying with applicable data protection laws. 

The implementation of the EU data protection framework – or General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – imposes a new set of rules that Unilabs will be compliant with.

Where does Unilabs stand with GDPR?

Wherever personal data is entrusted to any of our companies, we are dedicated to meet with GDPR requirements. This not only applies to the processing of patient data, but also that of our employees, customers, suppliers, business partners and other individuals whom we have work relations within the framework of our activity.

We have screened GDPR requirements, with the support of a top-ranked firm in data protection, and have set up a data protection team, led by a Group Data Protection Officer.

Data processing: GDPR requires that personal data be collected and processed fairly, and for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes. Our processing operations are inventoried in a register, and each of them rely on a clear legal basis. For example, a processing operation can be necessary for the performance of a contract, or for the purpose of legitimate interests pursued by Unilabs. We take particular care when we resort to third parties to process the personal data they are entrusted with and ensure that our data processors are subject to appropriate due diligence and contractual agreements.

Transparency: GDPR requires that personal data should always be controlled during its lifecycle, and appropriate steps taken to ensure it is adequate, relevant, limited, accurate and up-to-date. We are fully transparent on how personal data is processed by our companies. Personal data is mapped to allow collection, storage, usage, modification or deletion of such data according to GDPR requirements and data subjects’ requests.

Data security: At Unilabs, data security is of the utmost importance to us. We implement all appropriate technical and organisational measures to provide the highest level of security and ensure personal data is accessible and protected.

You can also read our dedicated GDPR FAQ document to find out more on how we stand with regards to the new legislation.

What's Next?

At Unilabs, we do our best to provide an incredible customer experience. We will continue to make additional required operational changes following on from the new legislation, and will keep our clients, patients, providers and all regulatory authorities informed throughout this development.

GDPR is a great opportunity to work hand in hand with every healthcare organisation in order to provide better care to individuals, whom entrust us with the protection of their personal data.
