Who is responsible for processing of your personal data?
Fluidda is responsible for the processing of your Personal Data and will act as the data controller. Contact details in case of queries about this Policy is provided in the last section of this Policy.
Which type of personal data do we collect?
Personal data includes any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (also known as a “data subject”).

We do not process any special categories of Personal Data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, health data or data concerning someone’s sexual activity. In this respect, we would like to clarify that the CT Scans including the age, gender and height that we receive from clinical trials or which are uploaded into Broncholab and other medical devices do not qualify as Personal Data since they cannot directly or indirectly be identified to a natural living person. If a data breach occurs, for example if an unanonymized scan is sent to Fluidda for processing, the sponsor shall be informed within 1 working day from when the scan is received. Only anonymized or pseudonymized scans are processed.

We use your personal data solely for the purposes of processing your requests, to conduct our business, recruitment-relating purposes or to correspond with you.
We will only process your Personal Data for specific purposes. Please note that we do not intend to further process your Personal Data for a purpose other than described below or via specific notification.

- Performance of a contract with you: when the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract you are a party to or in order to take the steps at your request to enter into a contract. In particular for Broncholab, providing your Personal Data is necessary for the performance of a contract with us to give you access to Broncholab. If you do not provide your Personal Data, we, regrettably, cannot give you (any further) access to Broncholab;
- Our legitimate interest: when processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interest, except where our interests are overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms. We will provide you with more information about our legitimate interest at the appropriate time of the processing operation;

We will only store your Personal Data as long as necessary while ensuring appropriate protection of your personal information. How long we keep your Personal Data depends on the purpose we use it for as described in this Policy. Your personal data is kept for no longer than is necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is collected. We will frequently review the information we hold and when there is no longer a legal or business need for us to store it.
