Data Protection & Privacy

Spinal Cord Monitoring ltd. understands that your privacy is important to you and that you care about how your personal data is used. We respect and value the privacy of all our clients/patients and will only collect and use personal data in ways that are described here, and in a way that is consistent with our obligations and your rights under the law.

Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.

Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:

a) The right to be informed about our collection and use of your personal data. 

b) The right to access the personal data we hold about you. 

c) The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. 

d) The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we have.

e) The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.

f) The right to object to us using your personal data for a specific purpose or purposes.

g) The right to data portability. This means that, if you have provided personal data to us directly, we use it with your consent or for the performance of a service, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask us for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.

h) Rights relating to automated decision-making and profiling. We do not use your personal data in this way.

For more information about our use of your personal data or exercising your rights as outlined above, please contact our data protection officer at: data@spinalcordmonitoring.co.uk 

​If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”.

All our data storage and transfer is managed by Egress Software Technologies, a UK government certified provider which allows email and document classification; email and file encryption; secure managed file transfer, secure online collaboration, auditing and compliance reporting. This enables us to protect your data and share information securely throughout its lifecycle. For further information about Egress Software Technologies and its GDPR statement, go to www.egress.com/about.

We will only store your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the GDPR.

Further information about your rights can also be obtained from the Information Commissioner’s Office or your local Citizens Advice Bureau.

If you have any cause for complaint about our use of your personal data, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
