Good Methods acts as a Data Processor for information we process on behalf of dental practices and private healthcare providers (“Customers”) via our popular product CareStack®. This means that we act on our Customer’s instructions when it comes to collecting, storing, accessing, using, and sharing Patient Information.
“Patient Information” shall mean, any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”
Our Customer’s decide the lawful basis and purpose of processing Patient Information and we have the necessary agreements in place to process information for these purposes.
Good Methods provides support to its Customer’s to supply technology and reporting systems. We help our Customer’s in delivering high quality dental care and treatment.
The data we collect depends on the products, services, and features of the Site that you use, and includes the following:
Good Methods does not collect Patient Information from patients directly. We work with our Customer’s across the Country who use our system to store Personal Data and Special Data as defined below. The purpose of storing this data is to deliver healthcare treatment to you.
“Personal Data” is defined as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
“Special Category Data” is defined as Personal Data that needs more protection because it is sensitive. This includes personal data about an individual’s: race; ethnic origin; political opinions; religious or philosophical beliefs; trade union membership; genetic data; biometric data (where this is used for identification purposes); health data; sex life; or sexual orientation.
Good Methods does not share your information with anybody other than for the purposes of providing services for you. We provide a system for the safe storage of your Personal Data and Special Data.
Data Protection Law provides a number of rights that Good Methods is committed to supporting their customers with:
* Subject to the legal basis upon which your data is being processed some of the above may not apply.
Since we act as a Data Processor and do not have access to demographic information it makes it difficult to identify you and therefore any requests should be directed to the dental practice or private provider who sent Good Methods your information.
Good Methods does not profile individuals and does not carry out any automated actions with your Personal Data.
Good Methods is committed to ensuring the security and confidentiality of Personal Data and SpecialData. There are a number of ways we do this:
