The data collected in this manner is temporarily stored, but not together with any other data from you.

Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

5. search for a doctor / book a video consultation.

Via our website patient.samedi.de and termin.samedi.de. you can search for institutions and book appointments for a video consultation with them online. There are two ways of booking. The respective institution decides which booking option is open to you.

a) Booking with samedi patient account
To book an appointment, you must log in to your samedi patient account or create one beforehand. When booking the appointment, depending on the institution's query, the following personal data may be processed and transmitted to the corresponding institution: Name, first name, date of birth, email address, telephone number, address data, appointment data, purpose of the appointment, type of health insurance, contact data and medical data. The legal basis for the transmission of the appointment request to the respective institution is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a) DSGVO for health data.

b) Booking as a guest

Furthermore, you have the possibility to book an appointment with an institution as a guest. In this case, the booking is also possible without a samedi patient account. Whether a guest booking is possible at an institution is solely up to the institution. When booking the appointment as a guest, the following personal data may be processed and transmitted to the respective institution, depending on the institution's request: Name, first name, date of birth, e-mail, appointment data, purpose of the appointment, type of health insurance, contact data and health data.

6. video consultation process and processing of health data

In order to provide the functionality of the video consultation between doctor and patient, we need to transfer data between the parties participating in the video consultation. To maintain patient confidentiality and medical secrecy, we use technology that enables us to transfer the data in an end-to-end encrypted format as directly as possible between the participants. The data is therefore encrypted on the patient's terminal device and only decrypted again on the doctor's terminal device (and vice versa). The technology used is called WebRTC, and employs AES as the encryption algorithm. This means that no one except the participants in the video consultation can see this data in plain text (not even samedi as the operator of the platform).

The following data is sent and received via this special end-to-end encrypted connection:

Name of the patient

Video and audio data

Chat communication

Documents

We do not process or store this data.

The data is processed on the legal basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR].

Insofar as health data is involved we process your data in accordance with Article 9 Paragraph 2 lit. a) EU GDPR.

7. group video consultation process and processing of health data

Within the framework of the group video consultation, it is possible for institutions with a maximum of 15 persons to conduct a consultation by video. In order to join the group video consultation, it is necessary to enter a clear name. Within the group video consultation, participants have access to a group chat that can be viewed by all. Furthermore, the group video consultation offers the participating doctors and patients the possibility to share documents, which are then available to all participants and can be downloaded.

In order to provide the functionality of the video consultation between doctor and patient, we need to transfer data between the parties participating in the video consultation. In order to protect patient confidentiality and medical secrecy, we use a technology that allows us to transfer the data in an end-to-end encrypted format as directly as possible between the participants. The data is thus encrypted on the patient's terminal device and only decrypted again on the doctor's terminal device (and vice versa). The technology used is called WebRTC, and uses AES as the encryption algorithm. This means that no one except the participants in the video consultation can see this data in plain text (not even samedi as the operator of the platform).

The following data is sent and received via this special end-to-end encrypted connection:

- Patient name
- Video and audio data
- Chat communication
- documents

We do not process or store this data for any other purpose.

The legal basis for this storage is provided by Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR]. If it concerns health data, we process your data in accordance with Art. 9 Paragraph 2 lit. a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR].

Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.

We delete the metadata collected in this manner after three months at the latest by means of an automated process.
