As a registered care provider under the supervision of the Swedish Health and Social Care Inspectorate, IVO (IVO-ID Org-2019-00017456), we encounter sensitive personal data in the form of health information (medical records, health data, etc.). In order to be able to process this information in accordance with current law and to meet the National Board of Health and Welfare’s (Socialstyrelsens) requirements, we use encrypted patient record systems in everyday clinical practice.

The processing of sensitive personal data, such as patient data, only takes place after you share this personal data with us. This personal information may be obtained by NEM orally, in writing and when using NEM’s Products. As a customer, you give us the right to process this personal data through your consent.

NEM collects data about you as a customer, to be able to handle your order, create and improve the business relationship, collect expressions of interest, marketing, statistical purposes, to be able to invoice you, as a basis according to the Accounting Act, to identify you and to be able to offer you as a customer the best possible care based on your patient data.

We use subcontractors in order to increase the security of the processing of your personal data. As a private healthcare provider, we are obliged to follow the same secrecy and duty of confidentiality as public healthcare. As a result, we have established routines for handling sensitive and confidential personal data. We also follow the guidelines that apply to quality assurance and quality development for care providers, specified by the National Board of Health and Welfare (SOSFS 2005: 12).

NEM also complies with the Swedish laws, rules and regulations that apply to the handling of sensitive personal data. All staff at NEM must consider the laws and regulations that apply to licensed staff in the Swedish health care system. All personnel categories are covered by secrecy towards individual customers and are, where applicable, legitimized by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare.

We also process personal data in order to be able to perform evaluations and follow-ups of customer satisfaction. When you contact us via a communication channel, the information about you is used to handle the specific matter, to be able to contact you and contribute to improving our service.

We do not share personal data with third parties for any purpose other than to ensure and improve the quality of NEM’s products, improve our ability to process your personal data in a secure manner, and after we have received consent from the individual to share personal information for other purposes. The latter can, for example, concern helping the customer get in touch with another care provider, partner, or sub-consultant to NEM, via, for example, a referral that contains relevant information, including sensitive personal data. The processing of your personal data regarding storage and structuring takes place in systems that are encrypted.

6. How long do we store your personal information?

NEM stores personal data about you as a customer, if you are covered by an active agreement, or when it is necessary to achieve the purposes described in the specific agreement, or this privacy policy. Upon termination of the agreement, your information may be saved for a period thereafter. The length and scope of how NEM save these, depends on the relationship you had with NEM.
