Privacy Policy


We at TheSocialMedwork are convinced that the protection of the privacy of users of our online health community market website is critical to our activities and the trust of our users. Personal information of our users of the online health community market website are treated with the greatest care and secured accordingly. TheSocialMedwork adheres to the Data Protection Act and other relevant legislation relating to the protection of personal information.

Processing of personal information

We at TheSocialMedwork capture information in the framework of our services. This happens as soon as a user visits our website and subsequently when a user continues using the services on our online health community market. In addition, when you as a user use our (interactive) services, when you make your interest known, or when you have other contact with TheSocialMedwork. This pertains to information that is necessary for contact or the service and for creating a user account. You never need to provide more information than is necessary for the purpose of the data processing. You are free to share more information on the website with other users in regards to your knowledge and experiences.

TheSocialMedwork uses the information exclusively for the purposes of the online health community market website and the services provided by TheSocialMedwork, or for the execution of an agreement with the user, to the extent that the relevant information is required for this. Your information will not be made available to third parties without your prior consent. If you consent to share information with designated third parties, you can also withdraw this permission at any time.

TheSocialMedwork stores information only as long as necessary to realize the objectives of the data processing, i.e. responding to the user's enquiry and processing an order. The information is then subsequently destroyed.

TheSocialMedwork secures the online health community market website and the information it processed in an appropriate manner, as prescribed by international law.

Shielded Information

A subsection of the service is that the user will be able to exchange information within the health management tools of TheSocialMedwork about illness or treatment with treating doctor, other healthcare providers and others designated by user within a secure environment (e-file). What is applicable here is that TheSocialMedwork has taken additional safeguards and measures for this information to ensure the security of the information. TheSocialMedwork also allows the user to manage the access to this information with these measures and, if so desired, to shield access by anyone other than his/her own healthcare provider(s). The measures also enable the user to remove the information completely.

Not Reductible Use/Statistics

All aggregated and non-reducible information relating to e-files (information about treatments, clinical picture and medication) on the portal will be processed with the consent of the user for the information of other users and website visitors. It will therefore not be possible to reduce the information to a user or otherwise to a person.

If user does not wish to receive such information, user can specify this at any time by sending TheSocialMedwork an email about this or click on the provided button in the email user may receive from TheSocialMedwork.
