ScreenPoint Medical is a company creating artificial intelligence software to assist radiologists in reading medical images. The research and development team in the company uses existing medical imaging data to develop and improve the quality of the software. This existing medical imaging data is obtained in de-identified form from hospitals/clinics by means of a contract or from publicly available databases. ScreenPoint Medical respects and is committed to protection of privacy of individuals. This policy applies to Transpara™, the website of ScreenPoint Medical and to any private information of an individual provided by traceable media such as email, telephone, or in written. We encourage every concerned party to read this policy and approach us in case of questions at dataprotection@
At ScreenPoint Medical, the data processing is performed in an adequate, relevant and limited manner to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed. We are committed to the accuracy and, where necessary, to updates; every reasonable step is taken to ensure that personal data that are inaccurate, with regard to the purposes for which they are processed, are erased or rectified without delay. The data is not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with the stated purposes; and can process for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes. ScreenPoint reserves the right to destruct the data which it deems not of use for the purpose of processing.
ScreenPoint Medical processes medical imaging data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to individuals. Medical imaging data used in the company, such as mammograms and associated records relating to presence of abnormalities, are anonymized to protect individual privacy. ScreenPoint Medical explicitly asks data providers for permission to collect medical data and only accepts such data when it is anonymized. In this form it may be used for the legitimate purposes of research and commercialization of the artificial intelligence software.
Data providers deliver data to ScreenPoint in anonymized or pseudo-anonymized form. If needed, ScreenPoint can provide software to data providers to perform anonymization. ScreenPoint uses industry grade anonymization techniques to remove patient information in medical data and checks if incoming data is anonymized before accepting them. The data are kept in a form with which data subjects cannot be identified, but the data can be used for the purposes of processing; the data may be stored for longer periods insofar as they might be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes. Previous anonymized data of an individual are kept to learn about the evolution of disease. ScreenPoint implements industry grade technical and organisational measures to safeguard the privacy, the rights and the freedom of individuals.
The data is processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage, using appropriate technical or organisational measures. ScreenPoint as a controller of data is responsible for, and is willing to be transparent in the processing of data, and is committed to demonstrate compliance with the mentioned claims.
