How does Healix handle your Personal Information?

Applicable laws: Healix is bound by local and regional applicable privacy and data protection laws and regulations.

How is it held? Security is a high priority for Healix and to protect the personal information that we collect we have implemented appropriate organisational, technical and physical safeguards to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure. We require the same high standard of information security and information management of third parties we share your data with.

Personal information held by Healix is stored on Healix’s secure servers. In some circumstances, it may be held on a third party’s infrastructure where product or service delivery is outsourced. Access controls are applied to limit access to personal information to those individuals with a legitimate business requirement.

Who is the personal information disclosed to? Healix will only use and disclose personal information for the primary purposes for which it was initially collected, or for purposes which are directly related to one of Healix’s functions or activities. As a general rule, Healix will not use or disclose personal information to any third parties except:

  • To Healix Group companies (please see the Regulatory Info tab), for the same purposes as listed above;
  • To third parties engaged to provide services in connection with the purposes mentioned above (e.g. Hospitals and Clinics, service providers with whom Healix has partnerships, for technical services and maintenance on infrastructure, reference checks for job applicants);
  • If consent has been obtained;
  • If the use or disclosure can reasonably be expected, or the data subject has been informed; and
  • If it is otherwise permitted, authorised or required by applicable law.

Cross Border Transfer of personal information: Personal information might be subject to international transfer if necessary in order to provide the service. Healix may transfer the personal information cross border to recipients in countries including but not limited to the EU, US, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore and the country in which the data subject may be travelling and/or receiving medical treatment.
