In accordance with the provisions of the Spanish Organic Law 15/1999 on the Protection of Personal Data of 13 December (hereinafter "LOPD") and in Royal Decree 1720/2007 of 21 December, approving the implementing Regulation of the LOPD (hereinafter "RDLOPD"), PROMETUM SPAIN, S.L.U. (hereinafter "medmesafe") wishes to inform the user of the platform of the policy regarding the processing and protection of personal data belonging to users of the platform.
In addition, the user is informed that these conditions shall apply in a subsidiary manner to those which are established specifically for the same matter and are communicated to the user without limitation through the registration forms thus rendering this policy complementary to the previous conditions in areas which are non-contradictory.
The user is informed that any processing of personal data will fall within the scope of current Spanish legislation on data protection established by the LOPD as well as its complementary and implementing regulations.
For such purposes, personal data shall be understood to mean any information concerning identified or identifiable natural persons which, in the latter case, unequivocally identifies the data subject. The term user shall be understood to mean any identified or identifiable natural person who accesses the platform and who, through the means provided on the platform, provides their personal data to medmesafe. Such means include, but are not limited to, email and the completion of data collection forms or similar.
1. IDENTIFICATION OF THE REGISTERED NAME OF THE PARTY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FILE
medmesafe hereby informs the user that PROMETUM SPAIN S.L.U. (hereinafter "medmesafe") is responsible for processing personal data as well as keeping files which contain such personal data in order to collect and store personal data derived from the use of the platform or from any type of communication sent by the user to medmesafe.
2. PURPOSES ASSIGNED TO THE PERSONAL DATA
medmesafe is a platform which provides intermediation and hosting services. The platform enables individuals, who wish to use the services offered on the platform, to contact doctors, medical professionals, laboratories and users (hereinafter collectively referred to as "third parties" or "service providers") who provide their services through the platform, which facilitates the selection, provision and enjoyment of services offered by such service providers.
In order to perform the intermediation activities, medmesafe is divided into two different areas which allow users to register either as individuals, who wish to use the services offered through the platform, or as professionals, who wish to offer their services through the platform.
As a result, the medmesafe platform acts as an intermediation mechanism in order to facilitate the contact between individuals interested in acquiring the analysis, prescription, genetic counselling and advisory services offered by the laboratories and professionals through the platform as well as facilitate the procurement of such services by the individuals in accordance with the terms established by the third-party service providers. The information generated by such services is stored centrally and is only accessible to the individual and the responsible professional assigned to the individual's file.
Therefore, medmesafe does not sell any type of product or service. It only provides an intermediation and hosting service which enables the users of the platform to view, select, offer and procure the services offered on the platform.
Hence, the only data medmesafe is responsible for is that which is provided by users when browsing the platform, completing the individual or professional registration forms and completing the contact or information request forms. The providers of the services offered through the platform shall be responsible for the data provided by the individuals for the procurement of such services and for any data generated during the contractual or service relationship they have with the individuals.
Users who access the medmesafe platform are not obliged to provide personal information to use the platform. Therefore, any communication of data for such purposes will be the result of the user voluntarily deciding to browse or use the services offered through the platform in a personalised manner.
In this sense, forms are available on the platform for purposes which include, but are not limited to, collecting personal data, such as user registration forms for both individuals and professionals, as well as contact forms and information request forms.
Notwithstanding the provisions contained in these conditions, in the aforementioned cases, the data processing conditions established and communicated to the user by medmesafe through the corresponding forms shall prevail in each case. This policy shall apply in a complementary and subsidiary manner to the aforementioned conditions in areas which are non-contradictory.
3. INFORMATION AND CONSENT
In general, personal user data may be processed for purposes including, but not limited to, the following
- If the user contacts medmesafe to make enquiries or request information, the data will be processed in order to handle and respond to the received communications, as well as send the requested information.

- To manage the process of registering on the platform as well as to guarantee the management and administration of the account and to assign a professional to the individual's file who is registered on the platform and who will be responsible for providing the individual with the proper advice. On their account, the individual will have access to range of services offered by third parties which they may engage and procure according to their profile.
- If the data is provided for the procurement of a service offered by third parties through the platform, the data shall be processed by the responsible provider in order to manage the procurement process and provide the service.

In these cases, their data will be processed by medmesafe to manage the issuance of the commercial communications as well as the potential revocation of consent by the individual, objection to processing, deregistration or exclusion from the issuance of advertisements or from the service. In the latter case, medmesafe may process the minimum amount of data required to guarantee the cessation or non-receipt of the commercial communications and advertisements, if so requested.
- The issuance of commercial communications and advertisements by medmesafe via email or other equivalent means of electronic communication about products and services offered by third parties, with whom medmesafe has established intermediation relationships, relating to prevention and diagnosis as well as life quality improvement, wellbeing and healthy lifestyle. In these cases, the individual's data will be processed by medmesafe to manage the issuance of the commercial communications as well as the potential revocation of consent by the individual, objection to processing, deregistration or exclusion from the issuance of advertisements or from the service. In the latter case, medmesafe may process the minimum amount of data required to guarantee the cessation or non-receipt of the commercial communications and advertisements, if so requested.

3.2. "Registering as a Professional:":
If the user is registering as a professional, their data will be processed for the following purposes:
- To carry out the registration process, perform the necessary checks in order to verify compliance with the requirement to be a member of a professional association as well as any other necessary requirements and to create and manage the account the professional has registered on the medmesafe platform in order to provide the services requested by individuals.

- The communication of the professional's contact details by medmesafe to third parties from the prevention, diagnosis, life quality improvement, wellbeing and healthy lifestyle sectors for the issuance of electronic advertisements via email or other equivalent means of electronic communication about their products or services.
Accordingly, if the user does not want their data to be processed by medmesafe, they must refrain from communicating or sending their personal data to medmesafe, thus browsing the platform anonymously or, where appropriate, refraining from using the services available on the platform. Otherwise, we hereby inform users that communicating their data to medmesafe in accordance with the established terms implies that the user gives their free, unequivocal, specific, informed and express consent for their data to be processed by medmesafe.
Personal information will only be used for limited purposes such as those set forth above and/or including but not limited to those which, where appropriate, are unequivocally indicated prior to the collection and processing of the data of the data subject and which therefore constitute legitimate processing on the part of medmesafe.
Within the framework of the provision of services and the content offered through the platform, medmesafe may at any time request personal information about the user of the platform through forms or other means. In such cases, medmesafe will include an informative notice on the data collection form which indicates all of the conditions for processing personal data in accordance with Article 5 of the LOPD, such as the obligatory or optional nature of answering the questions on the form, the consequences of obtaining data or refusing to supply it, the purposes of collecting the data as well as the potential transfer of data. Where appropriate, medmesafe shall request the user's consent prior to processing the personal data. In addition, with regard to those services which have special conditions, if these services include an informative text on data protection in order to regulate the use of the service, this policy shall always apply in a complementary and subsidiary manner to such informative texts in areas which are non-contradictory.
4. IDENTIFICATION OF THE RECIPIENTS TO WHOM MEDMESAFE INTENDS TO TRANSFER OR COMMUNICATE DATA
medmesafe only intends to transfer or communicate data where required in accordance with Article 11.2.c of the LOPD, in order to implement, comply with and control the relationship with the user and to meet their obligations with the competent public administrations in cases where required according to current legislation and, where appropriate, other entities such as State Security Forces and Bodies, Judges, the Public Prosecutor's Office, Courts, Court of Auditors and the Ombudsman at all times and in all applicable instances.
If the user participates in any event organised by medmesafe, their data may be transferred to third parties involved in the management of the event.
medmesafe hereby informs the user that they are obliged to notify the user of any other obligation to transfer data where provided for in the LOPD. medmesafe shall inform the user in an express, precise and unequivocal manner of the recipients of the information, the purpose of the transfer of the data and the nature of the transferred data or, where provided for in the LOPD, medmesafe shall request the unequivocal, express and informed consent of the user.
5. OTHER RECIPIENTS OF THE INFORMATION
medmesafe advises the user that this entity has sole responsibility and hereby guarantees the confidentiality, security and processing of the data in accordance with this policy with regard to the personal data collected from the user through the platform. medmesafe may not be held responsible for any processing or subsequent use of the personal data performed by third parties who offer their services through the platform and/or third-party providers of information society services which may access such data as a result of the provision of their services or through their operations.
Third-party providers of information society services shall be understood to mean, without limitation, any natural or legal persons who provide the following services: (i) Transmission of data provided by the recipients of the service through a communication network. (ii) Services for accessing the aforementioned network. (iii) Data storage or data hosting services. (iv) Provision of contents or information.
Furthermore, medmesafe shall not be responsible for data processed by third parties who establish hyperlinks to medmesafe, or for those who refer users to the platform through medmesafe hyperlinks.
6. QUALITY OF THE DATA
medmesafe advises the user that, unless in cases of legally constituted representation or with the corresponding authorisation, no user can use the identity of another person and communicate their personal data. The user must therefore take into account at all times that if they use the email or registration service on the platform, they may only provide personal data corresponding to their own identity which must be correct, relevant, up to date, exact and true. To this end, the user shall be solely responsible for any damage, direct and/or indirect, caused to third parties or medmesafe through the use of the personal data of another person or their own personal data if it is false, erroneous, out of date, inadequate or irrelevant. Equally, users who communicate the personal data of a third party shall be liable to them under the information obligation established in Article 5.4 of the LOPD for instances when personal data has not been obtained from the data subject and/or the consequences of not having informed the data subject of such.
7. DATA OF MINORS OR LEGALLY INCAPACITATED PERSONS
In addition, if the user is under eighteen (18) years of age or is legally incapacitated, medmesafe points to the need to obtain the consent of their parents, guardians or legal representatives in order to communicate their personal data to medmesafe. Medmesafe therefore requests that such users refrain from communicating their data through the contact forms and from registering on the platform. The registration and use of the services on this site, in particular the purchase of such services, by persons who are under the age of eighteen (18) years or legally incapacitated is prohibited. In this last case, such persons are not legally represented in accordance with current legislation. Medmesafe shall not be held responsible for the actions of the minor or legally incapacitated person.
8. FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL NETWORKS
Social networks are services provided by third-party providers which enable users to interact with one another in a virtual community. Users can create their own public profile where they can create and share content, information and personal data with other users on the network.
Users can create an account or profile on a social network for professional or personal purposes. The operation of the social network is governed primarily by the conditions established by the owner and/or provider of the network and secondly, with regard to accounts and profiles created for commercial purposes, by the terms and conditions established by the party responsible for the official profile, page or commercial account.
medmesafe has profiles on social networks such as, but not limited to, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can follow us and become a medmesafe fan on the aforementioned social networks as well as on other social networks we mention on the medmesafe platform.

medmesafe is responsible for the management of their official sites and pages on social networks provided that they are the original official sites and pages created by medmesafe and the social network itself allows medmesafe to manage their official sites and pages.
If the user becomes a follower of the official medmesafe sites and pages, the user must respect the specific conditions established and published on each official site and page by the provider and owner of the social network as well as those published by medmesafe.

To stop following the official medmesafe site or page or any of the official sites and pages on the social networks, the user must follow the steps indicated in the operating conditions and conditions of use established by each network provider without medmesafe being able to intervene in this process.

Registered users on the platform can make such changes directly by amending the data on their account or through exercising their rights in accordance with the process established in this policy in the section on the exercise of rights of access, rectification, cancellation and objection.
10. EXERCISE OF RIGHTS OF OBJECTION AND REVOCATION OF THE CONSENT GIVEN FOR THE RECEIPT OF COMMERCIAL COMMUNICATIONS VIA EMAIL OR OTHER EQUIVALENT MEANS OF ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION

In both cases (objection and revocation), the user must simply notify medmesafe of their request for such.
For this, the user can request objection to and/or revocation of consent, as well as exclusion or removal from the subscription service for commercial communications, by sending medmesafe an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org with "Remove" as the subject or by expressly indicating their request for objection, revocation of consent, exclusion from or cessation of the issuance of commercial communications by email or equivalent means of communication.
The user's request will be taken into account by medmesafe in order to guarantee the exercise of their rights to be excluded from the receipt of commercial communications via email or equivalent means of communication in accordance with the legislation on e-commerce and the information society. For this, medmesafe shall process the minimum amount of user data required to guarantee the cessation or non-receipt of the commercial communications and advertisements, if so requested.

Equally, medmesafe recommends that users use the security measures they have at their disposal (secure web servers, cryptography, digital signature, firewall, etc.) to protect the confidentiality and integrity of their data where necessary, as there are risks of impersonation or data breaches.
medmesafe hereby reminds users that the internet is not secure.
