INTERNATIONAL USE AND THE GDPR
The basic tenants of the promulgated GDPR regulations include, but are not limited to the following:
Access to collected data: At BetterSpace™, you already have the ability to access your shared data (Your personal information, your emergency contact information and all your interactions with your Providers) and use it as you wish.
Security: At BetterSpace™ we have encrypted our data from day one and has stored all Private Health Information with full HIPAA compliance and in an anonymized form as required by the GDPR.
Notice/Audit: At BetterSpace™, we will provide our Clients notice of any data breach and we employ a full time security Officer, as well as engaging a third party security firm to periodically audit both or code and technology security as well as our HIPAA policies and procedures around data security.
Finally, dependent of your EU country or origin, the GDPR takes into account what was previously termed the right “to forget” or request deletion of your data once you cease using a particular application or site. This particular tenant of the GDPR may conflict with applicable medical records retention laws. In the United States, this requires at least seven years of retention, which is common around the world and is sometime up to ten years or more in certain countries. So, unlike some data platforms, BetterSpace™ cannot erase private health data directly upon a Client’s request, as it may be considered essential for other medical file retention purposes. Applicable individual country medical retention laws are generally considered an acceptable exception to the GDPR regulations regarding the right to deletion of certain data.
BetterSpace™ reserves the right to suspend or terminate a User’s access to the Website and the Services with or without notice and to exercise any other remedy available under law, where,
- Such User breaches any terms and conditions of the Agreement;
- A third party reports violation of its right as a result of your use of the Services;
- BetterSpace™ is unable to verify or authenticate any information provide to BetterSpace™ by a User;
- BetterSpace™ has reasonable grounds for suspecting any illegal, fraudulent, or abusive activity on part of such User; or
- BetterSpace™ believes in its sole discretion that User’s actions may cause legal liability for such User, other Users or for BetterSpace™ or are contrary to the interests of the Website.
Once temporarily suspended, indefinitely suspended or terminated, the User may not continue to use the Website under the same account, a different account or re-register under a new account. On termination of an account because of the reasons mentioned herein, such User shall no longer have access to data, messages, files and other material kept on the Website by such User. The User shall ensure that he/she/it has a continuous backup of any services the User has rendered in order to comply with the User’s record-keeping process and practices.
