Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

KRY International AB, company reg. no. 556967-0820 (“KRY International”), the parent company in the KRY group, owns and makes available the ”KRY” technical platform and application (the “App”) and is the data controller of all processing personal data which you register in the App, which is not related to processing of your health data for healthcare purposes. This means that when you commence submitting health data for healthcare purposes, e.g. by submitting health data via a symptom form for the purpose of receiving medical advice and follow-up, it is solely the relevant healthcare provider which is data controller for any processing of personal data which is carried out in the context of providing you with such healthcare services.

In Sweden, it is KRY International’s wholly owned subsidiary, Digital Medical Supply Sweden AB, company reg. No. 559051-2702, which provides healthcare within the Services (the “Healthcare Provider”), unless otherwise clearly communicated to you in connection with your use of the Services.
As provider of the technical platform and App, KRY International will process personal data on behalf of and on the instructions of the Healthcare Provider (and other healthcare providers, if applicable) in capacity of data processor. This may include processing for the purpose of maintenance, debugging and support, for the purpose of assisting the Healthcare Provider in its quality work, to improve its services as well as with regulatory compliance and information security efforts. In the event another healthcare provider would join the KRY platform and process your personal data in connection with your use of the Services, we will inform you when you use the Services so that you always know which Healthcare Provider is the controller of your personal data.

If you have any questions or comments regarding the processing of your personal data related to your use of the Services, you are always welcome to contact us and/or our data protection officer via our website at https://www.kry.se/en/contact/, or by sending an email to privacy@kry.se.

3. Where do we collect your personal data which is processed when you use the Services?

3.1 Personal data which is registered via your user account in the App

KRY International and the Healthcare Provider process personal data about you, which you register via your account such as your name, personal ID number, address and email address when you open your user account with us and, any information which you subsequently register when you use the App. In addition, we may automatically collect and process the following information: (i) technical information, including IP address, login information, type and version of operating system and unit, time settings, language settings, screen settings, etc.; and (ii) information about your use of the App, including which functions you have used and when, etc.

Information regarding our use of cookies may also be found in KRY’s Cookies Policy.

We call these categories of personal data, which are provided when you download and use the App as “User Data” below.

3.2 Personal data to and from the Healthcare Provider

Contacts with the Healthcare Provider

When you seek healthcare from us, you are asked to share data linked to your physical and/or mental health. You do this primarily by filling in the relevant symptoms form in the App. This information may include, but is not limited to, information that you are suffering from an illness, your medical history, or your physiological or biomedical condition. The Healthcare Provider with whom you come into contact by using the Services may also transfer personal data about you for the purpose of providing and following up the healthcare you received within the scope of the Services. (See section 7.3 and 9 below for more information on how your information may be shared with other healthcare providers)

Health Profile

If you activate your Health profile, the Healthcare Provider may collect the information you decide to submit to your Health Profile, such as your weight, length, allergies and nicotine habits. This information is processed as described in section 5.3 below and will be made available for the healthcare staff with which you have a meeting.

Personal data related to your health which is described above in this section 3 and which the Healthcare Provider uses in order to provide healthcare services is referred to below as “Patient Data”.

3.3 Personal data from third parties including other Healthcare Providers

Your personal data may also be updated and processed by us as Patient Data based on the healthcare you have received from other healthcare providers who are not associated with KRY. In the event this data is considered relevant to the provision of healthcare within the scope of the Services, it may be stored and processed by the Healthcare Provider and transferred to your medical records by the treating clinician. This includes, for example, information on your medical history which is received from the Swedish national healthcare database (Sw: Nationell patientöversikt - NPÖ) which will be accessed where we obtain your separate consent and where it is deemed relevant for the purpose of providing you with medical treatment.

In addition, KRY International and the Healthcare Provider will regularly obtain updated information regarding you via the Swedish State Personal Address Register (SPAR) in order to be able to provide the Services, so that correct information about you is available at all times and to facilitate your contacts with the Healthcare Provider. This information includes your name, address, place of residence, country of residence, and whether or not you have a protected identity.

4. Where is your personal data stored?

The App is a technical platform developed by KRY International and is also owned and controlled by KRY International. Most of your personal data which we collect when you use the Services is not stored in your smartphone or tablet. Instead, this personal data is stored by KRY International, in infrastructure provided by one of KRY International’s subcontracted suppliers. The personal data is processed and stored primarily within the EU/EEA. The Healthcare Provider is obligated to maintain medical records when performing the Services and relevant patient data is filed and stored in a medical record system (specifically developed in order to fulfil the requirements of the applicable legislation) at the request of the Healthcare Provider.

9. Your rights as a data subject in relation to the App and as a user of the Services

You have the right to receive information regarding what personal information about you that we are processing, for what purpose it is being processed, whether such personal data has been transferred to a third country, and which parties have received your personal data.

In order to clarify this and your other rights as a data subject, you may at any time to contact us in order to:

  • request access to, and information about, the personal data which is being processed when you use the App and/or the Services;
  • ask us to correct any incorrect information about you;
  • request that your personal data be erased (however, note that Healthcare Providers have certain obligations to store certain personal data, particularly related to Patient Data, including keeping medical records in relation to your use of the Services). At your request, all personal data which we do not have a legal obligation to retain will be erased;
  • ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data;

As a patient you normally also have the right to block access to your medical records between different units of a healthcare provider, e.g. between different clinics or specialist units within the same healthcare provider or hospital. However, for availability and patient safety reasons, and in contrast to traditional healthcare, the Healthcare Provider is not organized into different units. Instead, the Healthcare Provider operates as one big primary care clinic. You can therefore not block access to your medical records at the Healthcare provider.
