Browser settings can include the type of browser you use, browser language, and time zone. We collect this information so that we can trace the computer used in cases of misuse or unlawful actions in connection with visits to or use of the Website. We also use the IP address to approximate your location (at city level) and so that we know which sets of our Terms & Conditions apply to your use of our Website.

1.6 For what purposes do we use your personal data?

We will use the information you provide to us to:

Provide our services to you, including displaying your reviews, and providing you with access to your profile and our Website Identify you as a registered user when you log in to the Website and re-visit the Website Verify the legitimacy of your reviews Improve the Website and our services Invite you to leave more reviews Respond to your questions and provide related customer service Pass on a message from the company you reviewed or the company that has invited you to review a service via the Website.

We would not do this without your expressed consent. If you consent to us referring you to a different healthcare provider, we will provide your contact details (phone number and email address) to a new company which we would have discussed with you beforehand.

1.7 On what legal basis do we process your personal data?

We need to process your personal data in order to:

Perform our contract with you (see Article 6.1.b of the GDPR) Comply with our legal obligations (see Article 6.1.c of the GDPR) and operate an online review platform in compliance with, for example, the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive, ICPEN’s guidelines on online reviews and endorsements, The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008, The Competition and Markets Authority’s guidance on online reviews and endorsements, the Danish Consumer Ombudsman’s Guidelines on publication of user reviews, the Danish Marketing Practices Act etc. Pursue legitimate business interests of our own related to operating the Website and providing our services to you, or to pursue the legitimate interests of third parties as long as your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests (see Article 6.1.f of the GDPR). For the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, where necessary (see Article 9.2.f of the GDPR) Some of these grounds for processing your personal data overlap, so there may be several reasons which justify us processing your personal data.
In those limited circumstances where you have expressly given your consent to us to process your personal data (see Article 6.1.a of the GDPR), you are free to revoke your consent at any time. However, please be aware that we may have the right to continue to process your information if it can be justified on one of the other legal bases mentioned above.

We therefore recommend that you keep such documentation for 12 months from the date of your review. We explain the type of documentation you should send us here.

We do not share the documentation you send to us with the reviewed company. However, if you have a reference number or order ID, we may pass that on to the company, unless you ask us not to.

We encourage you to review the privacy policies for these third party websites because their procedures for collecting, handling and processing personal data will be different from ours.

We have data processing agreements in place with the data processors and it follows from these agreements that they must act solely in accordance with our instructions.

The data processors have taken reasonable technical and organisational measures to protect against the information being accidentally or illegally destroyed, becoming lost or deteriorating, and to protect against the information being disclosed to unauthorised persons, being misused, or in other ways being processed in violation of data protection laws.

On your request – and possibly in return for remuneration at the data processors’ applicable hourly rates at any time for such work – the data processors must supply you with sufficient information to demonstrate that the above-mentioned technical and organisational safety measures have been taken.

Some of these data processors and third party services are located outside of the European Union, such as in the US.
