This Privacy Notice summarises the types of personal information processed by E-zec Medical Transport Service Ltd, where it is processed, under what circumstances and what factors are considered ahead of it being processed.
What does Processing actually mean?
‘Processing’ is a collective term meaning collecting, recording, organising, structuring, storing, adapting (or altering), retrieving, consulting, using, disclosing, disseminating (or otherwise making available), aligning (or combining), restricting, erasing or destroying personal information. The term processing will be referred to frequently within this document.

What types of information is processed?
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual; an identifiable person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly.
Special category data means any information relating to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union activities, physical or mental health, sexual life, genetic and biometric data.
What factors determine whether Personal Information is processed?
When considering whether to process personal data E-zec Medical will first consider whether it is lawful to do so, which means E-zec Medical must have a justification that is prescribed by the General Data Protection Regulations. If there is not lawful justification to process then E-zec Medical will not process the personal data.
E-zec Medical will also consider whether the type of processing activity is in line with the relevant Privacy Notice for that type of information and circumstances. Privacy Notices provide a more detailed overview of the processing according to the type of information processed. E-zec Medicals Privacy Notices are available via E-zec Medicals website at: email@example.com
If there is legal justification to process and the processing is in line with the relevant Privacy Notice, E-zec Medical will then use the principle of ‘no surprises’ which means that if E-zec Medical were to inform an individual what E-zec Medical is doing with their personal data, the individual would not be surprised at the answer. If it is believed that an individual would not be surprised then E-zec Medical would then consider it is reasonable to process the personal data for that or those purposes.
E-zec Medical will also take due account of the Caldicott Principles when processing the personal data of a patient, which is a set of guidelines governing the sharing of patient information. More information on the Caldicott Principles is available here.
