Introduction to Data Protection

At RXConnected, we prioritize the privacy and security of our users. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the cornerstone in our commitment to safeguard personal data. We are dedicated to maintaining transparency regarding the collection, use, storage, and sharing of your information. This privacy and data protection page aims to provide a thorough explanation of our data handling practices in conformity with the GDPR. RXConnected promises to protect your data and ensure that your rights as a data subject are respected and accessible.

Scope of Data Collection

Our RXConnected platform encompasses a variety of pharmaceutical-related services which necessitates the collection of personal information for functionality and user experience enhancement. It is vital for users to comprehend the types of data we collect, such as personal identification, medication preferences, and health-related inquiries, to furnish personalized services like medication guides, disease explanations, and pharmacy price comparisons. The data collection process is defined by the necessity and relevance to our offered services, always handled with the highest security measures to prevent any unauthorized access or misuse.

Your Rights Under GDPR

Under GDPR, you are endowed with a spectrum of rights including access to your personal data, rectification of inaccuracies, erasure of data, restriction of processing, and objection to processing, as well as rights concerning automated decision-making and profiling. RXConnected is fully committed to facilitating these rights. Users can execute these rights at any point by reaching out to the data controller at RXConnected.

We meticulously vet any third parties that handle user data to ensure they comply with GDPR standards, thus upholding our commitment to data protection.

Data Retention and Disposal

RXConnected acknowledges the importance of limiting data retention for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. Once data outlives its utility or if a user requests its deletion, we proceed with secure disposal methods. Data retention periods are determined based on legal requirements and the necessity for continued service provision. RXConnected maintains a proactive approach to data management, consistently reviewing and adjusting retention policies to align with regulatory compliance and best practices.
