Nicolab welcomes and emphasizes compliance with the GDPR.

On May the 25th, the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in the European Union. With the GDPR, the EU aims to protect all citizens’ privacy and personal data.
The GDPR gives every individual primary control over their data and holds all companies and organizations accountable for safe and legitimate processing of this data.

The GDPR has an important impact on collecting and processing medical data. As a processor of sensitive medical data, Nicolab welcomes and emphasizes compliance with the GDPR.
Nicolab incorporates the security of StrokeViewer as one of its core values in the development of StrokeViewer, making it secure by design.

Also, StrokeViewer only shows the necessary information for diagnostic purposes “by default” and can be tailored per hospital. To ensure the utmost quality of our company Infomation Security Management System (ISMS), Nicolab is supported by fore-front legal offices specialized in medical technology.

We are happy to answer any questions regarding privacy and security. Please send a message via our contact page. For further information regarding the GDPR, please read the information provided by the EU.
