  • Right to restriction of processing. Restriction of processing means that we have to identify your personal data the processing of which has been restricted and must not continue processing it for the period of the restriction, except for storage.

    • You contest the accuracy of the personal data, for the period necessary for us to be able to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
    • The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of use thereof instead;
    • We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require it for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
    • You have objected to the processing according to section VII below pending the verification whether our legitimate grounds for the processing override your interests or rights and freedoms;
  • Right to erasure of the personal data. The right to erasure of the personal data only applies to thepersonal data which we process for purposes other than provision of healthcare services. We are not allowed to erase the data we keep about you for the purpose of provision of healthcare services (e.g., in the medical documentation);
  • Right to data portability. You may request that we provide your personal data to you for the purpose of transfer thereof to another personal data controller or that we transfer your personal data to another personal data controller. You have this right, however, only with respect to the data we process by automated means based on your consent or an agreement with you.

8. Mandatory processing and obligation to provide personal data
Processing your personal data for the purpose of provision of healthcare services is a legal requirement. Non-provision of your personal data may mean that we will be unable to provide healthcare services to you which may result in a harm to your health or direct threat to life (Section 41(1)(d) of Act No. 372/2011 Sb. (Collection of Laws), on healthcare services and the conditions of provision thereof).
