Privacy & cookies

This privacy and cookie statement relates to the website [cgv url] and the self-triage service of “Should I Go to the Doctor?”.

Privacy Statement [cgv afkorting_organisatie]

[CGV organisation] (hereinafter: [CGV afkorting_organisatie]) considers careful handling of personal data to be of great importance. In this privacy statement, we describe which of your personal data we process, how we handle your personal data and what rights you have in that context.

[CGV afkorting_organisatie] is responsible for data processing. In this privacy statement, we explain which personal data we collect and use and for what purpose. We recommend that you read them carefully. In our processing, we comply with the requirements of the privacy legislation. This means, among other things, that:

  • we clearly state the purposes for which we process personal data. We do this through this privacy statement;
  • we limit our collection of personal data to only the personal data that is necessary for legitimate purposes;
  • we first ask for your explicit consent to process your personal data in cases where your consent is required;
  • we take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data and demand the same from parties that process personal data on our behalf;
  • we respect your rights, such as your right to access, correct or delete your rights.

Personal data and purposes

The self-triage service “Do I need to go to the doctor?”
When using the self-triage service “Do I need to go to the doctor?” (hereinafter: App), via our website you enter certain personal data and leave certain personal data. Because it concerns privacy-sensitive data, we believe it is important that we handle it with care.

When using the App, you fill in personal data about yourself or someone else for whom you use the App and a conclusion is given. The personal data that we process about you through this service are:

  • Gender
  • Date of birth
  • Your GP
  • Outcome of each triage (urgency)

Not in all cases the data you provide is personal data. An example of this is the fact that the App creates a UID (Unique Identifier for the device used). Nevertheless, we want to inform you clearly about what we do with your data. The information you have entered is necessary in the first instance to be able to answer the question ‘do I need to go to the doctor?’. Your gender and date of birth will be processed anonymously by the back-end of the App for the purpose of analyzing the use of the App. We can then ensure that the App works even better in the future and we can generate anonymous statistics. Your IP address is processed anonymously by the web server into a session number, so your personal data cannot be traced.

Your location will only be stored on the device you use to use the website and if you use the link with a map application (such as Google Maps) to get directions directly to your doctor. This data is not stored by us, but by the provider of the map application. We encourage you to read the relevant privacy statement.

Please note. If you have any questions about the outcome of the self-triage of the App or about whether you need to see a doctor, you should contact your GP or the out-of-hours GP service. You can therefore only report incorrect or incomplete data via the contact form and you can also request technical support. If you give feedback about the App, you are not supposed to send medical data that relates to yourself.


We invite you to leave feedback for us. If you accept this invitation, we will use your feedback, in combination with your gender and date of birth, to improve our services. We will keep your feedback for up to two years after you submit it.

Who do we share personal data with?

Providing information to others
Your personal data will not be shared with third parties for commercial purposes. Furthermore, [cgv afkorting_organisatie] may engage third parties in the context of the performance of its services. For example, the App is developed and hosted by a third party. Third parties are processors of [cgv afkorting_organisatie]. [CGV afkorting_organisatie] enters into agreements with processors to ensure that personal data are adequately protected by these parties.

Furthermore, [CGV afkorting_organisatie] will not provide your personal data to a third party that has not been engaged by [CGV afkorting_organisatie] to enable the intended use by the user, unless [CGV afkorting_organisatie] is obliged to do so by law, you have given your consent for this or [CGV afkorting_organisatie] has a legitimate interest in doing so. In the event of a suspicion of misuse of our website and App, we may hand over personal data to the legally competent authorities.

Third-Party Websites

We cannot guarantee that these third parties will handle your personal data in a reliable or secure manner. We recommend that you read the privacy statements of these websites before using them.
