International Use and The GDPR
The basic tenants of the promulgated GDPR regulations include, but are not limited to the following:
Access to collected data: At Flower Maiden, you already have the ability to access your shared data (Your personal information, your emergency contact information and all your interactions with your Providers) and use it as you wish.
Security: At Flower Maiden we have encrypted our data from day one and has always been stored all Private Health Information with full HIPAA compliance and in an anonymized form as required by the GDPR.
Notice/Audit: At Flower Maiden, we will provide our Clients notice of any data breach and we employ a full time security Officer, as well as engaging a third party security firm to periodically audit both or code and technology security as well as our HIPAA policies and procedures around data security.
Finally, dependent of your EU country or origin, the GDPR takes into account what was previously termed the right “to forget” or request deletion of your data once you cease using a particular application or site. This particular tenant of the GDPR may conflict with applicable medical records retention laws. In the United States, this requires at least seven years of retention, which is common around the world and is sometime up to ten years or more in certain countries. So, unlike some data platforms, Flower Maiden cannot erase private health data directly upon a Client’s request, as it may be considered essential for other medical file retention purposes. Applicable individual country medical retention laws are generally considered an acceptable exception to the GDPR regulations regarding the right to deletion of certain data.
Flower Maiden may suspend or terminate your access to the Service at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all. Flower Maiden has the right (but not the obligation) to refuse to provide access to the Service to any person, agency or organization at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all, in our sole discretion. Flower Maiden reserves the right to change, suspend, or discontinue all or part of the Service, temporarily or permanently, without prior notice.

You consent to Flower Maiden using “Meta Data” and other search terms to scan only HIPAA ‘Safe Harbor” de-identified transcripts to search for trends and patterns that may affect the quality of the Services provided to you or the practices of the Providers.
