The only health data we collect about you is the inference we may make about your health from the fact that you have purchased deprexis®.

Nor do we collect any information about criminal convictions or offences.

If you fail to provide personal data

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with access to deprexis®). In this case, we may have to cancel a contract you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.


We use different methods to collect data from and about you including through:

  • By a healthcare professional.  If you are prescribed deprexis® by a healthcare professional, the healthcare professional will provide us with the following information about you:
    - email address;
    - telephone number.


We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where we or the healthcare professional (if applicable) has obtained your explicit consent.
  • Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you.
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.

Who might we share your information with?

We may share your personal data with GAIA AG solely to the extent required to flag and resolve any issues or report any complaints relating to deprexis®. The terms on which we would, in limited circumstances, share your personal data with GAIA AG are set by a data sharing agreement entered into between us and GAIA AG, non-confidential details of which we can provide to you on request.

We may be required to share your personal data to comply with our various legal obligations and to assist with law enforcement, e.g. fraud and serious crime.

We may share some personal data as specified in the contracts we sign but will ensure that we have your permission or another clear legal basis before sharing data.

We may share some personal data with the other members of our group of companies that we have shared services with.

We may also share personal data with third party service providers which we utilise to deliver our services for example our payment facilitator, Global Clearinghouse Systems. These third parties operate under strict contractual terms and provide state of the art security. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

In the event that we sell or reorganise our business we may transfer the personal data that we hold to a new provider but we will ensure that your interests are protected if we do so.

Your personal data processed by EDT is stored by Microsoft Corporation in the Netherlands and managed by Oceanet Technology in France.  Oceanet Technology is registered at: 2 Imp. Joséphine Baker, 44800 Saint-Herblain, France. Microsoft Corporation is registered at: One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA.

These partners provide data management services to accredited recognised security standards.  In addition  our contracts prohibit data being used for purposes other than those we specify.  

Since some of our external third parties with whom we store or may share your personal data are based in Europe so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the UK.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it as we will only transfer your personal data to countries that are in Europe or have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data. 

Please contact us if you want further information regarding international data transfers.


We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

How long will we keep your data for?

We will keep your personal data only for as long as required in order to achieve the purposes for which it was gathered.

In some circumstances we will anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Data subjects Data retention
Patients and direct customers For as long as reasonably required for the processing of the service, required by law or our contractual obligations (whichever is the longest)

Your Rights

Data Protection law provides you with a number of rights which EDT will fully support.

Right of Access

If you would like to know what personal data we hold about you and to obtain a copy of that data please contact us by email with your request. We may have to seek confirmation of your identity to ensure a request is genuine.

Right to Rectification

If you notice that the data we have about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you may request by email that we rectify the mistake. We will make every effort to respond to requests of this type immediately though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Right to Erasure

This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

The Right to Objection

The right to object is a basic freedom all democracies enjoy. If you wish to object to the way we use, or may use, your personal data you may do so freely where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms. Please contact us.

The Right to Restriction

This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:

  • If you want us to establish the data's accuracy.
  • Where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it.
  • Where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

The Right to Portability

This is a legal right afforded to you that states we must pass on all of the details you have provided to us in a machine-readable format, either to you or to another provider of your choosing. Please contact us via email. 
The Right to Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

The Right to Complain

We will always try to maintain the highest standards and encourage the confidence our customers have in us as an organisation. In order that we can achieve this we do request that any complaints be first brought to our attention so we can properly investigate matters and where possible rectify the situation.

If however you would like to complain about EDT to a supervisory authority you may do so by contacting the Information Commissioners Office on 0303 123 1113, or anyone of the other reporting methods listed on their website: or if you are based within the European Economic Area (EEA) you can also complain to your local supervisory authority (as applicable). We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO so please contact us in the first instance.


Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/product and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). You can obtain further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities by contacting us.
Performance of Contract means processing your data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
Comply with a legal obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation that we are subject to.
Explicit consent means a specific, informed and unambiguous indication of your wishes, which you have freely given and affirmed in a clear statement (whether oral or in writing).

We keep our privacy policy under regular review. This version was last updated on 23 May 2022.
