Our commitment to upholding the highest standards of data protection, in line with regulations like the GDPR, underscores our dedication to earning and preserving your trust. We understand the significance of safeguarding your information, reflecting our core belief in protecting your confidence in our brand. With TMC, data protection is not just a priority—it is a fundamental commitment we proudly stand by. 

Where does TMC – a Unilabs Company stand with GDPR?

Unilabs is fully committed to GDPR compliance across all its entities. Whether it is patient data, employee records, customer information, supplier details, or any other personal data within our business activities, we prioritise meeting GDPR obligations and core principles of ethics.

Our dedicated team of data protection experts, overseen by the Group Data Protection Officer, ensures that best practices are consistently applied throughout the Unilabs Group with a continuous improvement. You can be confident that your personal data is managed with the highest level of care and strict adherence to GDPR standards.

Data processing:  Under GDPR, TMC is mandated to collect and process personal data for specific and legitimate purposes only. We maintain a record of all processing activities (ROPA), outlining each processing operation along with its purpose and legal basis. This record is revised on a regular basis to reflect changing work practices. When engaging third parties to process personal data on our behalf, we exercise the utmost caution. We establish contractual data processing agreements to ensure that the rights of subjects are upheld and apply appropriate due diligence to ensure that data processors can meet and act upon their GDPR obligations.

Transparency: GDPR requires that appropriate measures are in place to manage personal data during its lifecycle. TMC has controls:

  • To ensure that only a minimum amount of personal data is collected; 
  • To allow personal data to be corrected and kept up-to-date; and 
  • To dispose of personal data when it is no longer needed or relevant.  

Unilabs is fully transparent with regards to how personal data is processed by Group companies. Personal data is mapped to allow collection, storage, usage, modification, or deletion of such data according to GDPR requirements and data subjects’ requests.

Data security:  At TMC, data security is of the utmost importance to us.  We continuously assess and enhance our security systems, organisational measures, and work-practices to minimise our vulnerability to threats. By implementing the most rigorous security controls, we ensure that personal data is accessible at all times to the business while continuously safeguarding it against malicious actors. 

What’s Next?

At TMC, delivering an exceptional customer experience is our priority. We are dedicated to make operational changes that follow the GDPR and country-specific health legislation. Our commitment extends to keeping all of our clients, patients, and providers wherever they reside and all local regulatory authorities informed throughout these developments.
