Privacy declaration

This statement explains how Helpdesk Digitale Zorg handles the personal data obtained via the platform.


The initiators of Helpdesk Digital Care are Amaris Zorggroep, RHOGO and Tergooi MC. In June 2022, the Digital Care Helpdesk will be part of an independent foundation. Through both online and telephone contact, Helpdesk Digitale Zorg answers questions about healthcare themes without answering questions related to healthcare. These questions are used (anonymized) for sharing knowledge.

Personal data is used to enable good services. Helpdesk Digitale Zorg attaches great importance to your privacy. This means that we take care of your data with care. We do collect your personal data, but we only store that personal information that is really necessary to enable good services. We also ensure that this information cannot be viewed by third parties without your permission.

That is the short and simplified version of our privacy statement. We only collect the information we actually use and keep it secure and never longer than necessary. We never share your data with third parties without permission and you can unsubscribe from the newsletter.
