Certain data are also requested for scientific research. Some of these collaborations on scientific research take place within the framework of legal obligations and within the framework of public health.

In certain cases, employees also have (limited) access to certain personal data, for example when recording appointments. The purpose of this processing is to make the practice work run more smoothly, and to give the doctor sufficient time to spend on the patients (GDPR article 6.1.f).

For cooperation in scientific research, data may also be processed. All processing is carried out by authorities that have received the correct permissions and permissions for the processing of this data.
