We understand how important your privacy is to you. Therefore, protecting your privacy and handling the information you entrust us with, is of utmost importance to us. We process all personal data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). In this Privacy Statement, we explain what personal data we collect, why it is collected, how it is processed, and which measures we have taken to keep this personal data safe. This pertains to the personal data you provide us with directly as well as the personal data we obtain from other sources via our online health platform (the “Quin Platform”) and our website. We also explain what rights you have with respect to your personal data we process.

This privacy statement only pertains to your personal data we process. In some cases personal data may be processed by other parties. In such event, we will notify you hereof. The terms and conditions of these parties will then apply.

We may amend this Privacy Statement from time to time. Therefore, we recommend you to review it occasionally. This Privacy Statement was most recently amended on the date of publishing of this document, 1 April 2023.


Quin B.V. (together with its subsidiaries “Quin, “we” or “us”) is the controller of your personal data within the meaning of the GDPR, insofar as it relates to the Quin Platform and our website.

Quin is based in the Netherlands, at Stadhouderskade 55, 1072 AB Amsterdam.
Quin has appointed a Data Protection Officer (“DPO”). Our DPO can be reached by email for any privacy-related questions at privacy@quin.md.


At Quin, we try to provide healthcare in an easier way. Also, we find it important to be transparent about how we process your personal data. Privacy statements are long and sometimes annoying to read. Therefore, we made a summary of the most important items. We do however recommend you to also read the full privacy statement.

  1. To enable you to fully use our services and the Quin Platform, we process your personal data. Due to the nature of our services this includes health data. We only process health data after you share it with us and on the basis of your explicit consent that we may process this in accordance with this privacy statement. You can withdraw your consent at any time.
  2. We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably believe that we should use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose.
  3. We do not share your personal data with third parties, including health care insurers or parties trading data, for commercial purposes or any other purpose other than when required for providing you with our services.
  4. For some of our services, the personal (health) data you provided in the Quin Platform will be shared with your General Practitioner practice (GP) to enable your GP to provide you with the right care. You will be informed before any data is shared for this purpose. Data you share with your GP during a video consult will remain between you and your GP. The video consult will not be recorded.
  5. Quin and your GP (practice) are separate organizations. Once your account is connected to your GP practice, all the personal data you share with the GP within the services of the Quin Platform will be processed by Quin on behalf of the GP, who will act as the controller of your personal data.
  6. We always aim to only store personal data within the European Economic Area (EEA). If - in very rare cases - this is not possible and personal data is stored outside of the EEA, we ensure the principles as set out in the GDPR related to processing of data outside of the EEA are adhered to and security measures and additional safeguards to ensure an adequate level of protection of your personal data are in place. Currently, all personal data processed for the Quin Platform is stored in the EEA and only meta data for analytics and service improvement is stored elsewhere.
  7. As an exception to us not sharing your personal data with third parties as set out above, we may use and disclose your personal information when we believe this to be required and unavoidable in the following cases:
  8. to comply with applicable laws, which may include laws in force outside your country of residence, to responding to requests from public and governmental authorities, which may be from authorities outside your country of residence, to cooperate with law enforcement authorities or for other legal reasons;
  9. to enforce your compliance to our user terms in the event of a breach; and
  10. to protect our rights, privacy, safety or property and/or that of our subsidiaries or affiliates, you or others.
  11. Our services are not intended for use by minors (under 18) or by persons who have been declared mentally incapacitated and therefore cannot independently use the type of service we provide.
  12. We use cookies. More information on our use of cookies can be found in our Cookie Statement, which you can findhere.
  13. We have a Data Privacy Officer (DPO) who you can contact directly if you have any questions related to our processing of your personal data or when you would like to withdraw your earlier given consent. You can contact our DPO viaprivacy@quin.md.

When your GP is connected to the Quin Platform, we may share your personal data, including health data, with your GP practice in providing our services. You will always be informed before information for this purpose is shared.

This information will become available for all health care providers at your GP practice involved in your treatment. When you book a(n) (video) appointment, this will be the GP, for other contact options, such as direct messaging, this can also be the assistant.

For the further treatment and medical advice provided by your GP practice, your GP practice will act as the controller of your personal data and Quin will act as the processor.

Information you share with your GP during a video consultation will remain between you and your GP. The video consult will not be recorded. Quin will only act as controller for the data to set up the video connection.

2. Ada Health GmbH – symptom assessment

The symptom assessment included in the Quin Platform is provided by Ada Health GmbH (Ada).  When conducting a symptom check for the first time, you are requested to agree to their terms and conditions and privacy statement. Ada is the controller of the personal data you include in the symptom assessment. To enable Ada to provide you with high quality urgency advice, Quin will, after receipt of your consent, share the following personal data from your Quin account with Ada: gender, date of birth, smoker, diabetes and blood pressure. In the event the aforementioned data is not (correctly) received by Ada, the symptom assessment requests this information before it can be conducted. After receipt of your consent, Ada will share the assessment report with Quin. Subsequently, Quin will share this with your GP, if you decide to contact the GP.

3. Pharmeon – UwzorgOnline

In the event your GP practice is connected to the Quin Platform as well as the UwzorgOnline platform provided by Pharmeon B.V. (Pharmeon), you will be able to use the services of Quin via your account in UwzorgOnline. To enable this, Quin receives your Pharmeon ID, name, date of birth, gender, email address and mobile phone number from Pharmeon, after you provided your consent thereto and agreed to the Quin Terms and Conditions as well as this privacy statement. When you book a video consult via the Quin services, the date and time thereof will be shared by Quin with Pharmeon, in the event you check your appointment overview.

4. Medical specialist

When you use our service Specialist Care, we share your personal data with the healthcare providers and medical specialists involved in your treatment. We will only do this with your explicit consent.

5. Other parties

Only in exceptional cases, we could be legally obliged or forced by a competent court to provide personal data to a third party, for example the supervisory authority, the tax authorities, or the police. In those cases, we will not provide more personal data than necessary to comply with such an obligation or judgment. When providing the information, we will ensure its integrity, availability and confidentiality.


The collection and use of your personal data in the provision of our services is largely based on your consent. In connection therewith, our services are not intended for (a) persons under the age of 18, and/or (b) people who have been declared legally incapacitated.


In principle, we only process personal data within the EEA. When we engage processors, we require that they also only store personal data on servers within the EEA. Should in isolated cases the processing of data within the EEA not be possible, we will take all appropriate and required measures to ensure that an adequate level of protection is ensured with regard to the processed data (such as, but not limited to, standard data protection clauses, binding corporate rules, approved code of conduct or exceptional circumstances under article 49 GDPR). The measures will always be in line with applicable legislation and according to EEA standards. Currently, all personal data processed for the Quin Platform is stored in the EEA and only meta data for analytics and service improvement is stored elsewhere.


We process personal data with the necessary care and have taken various measures to protect the personal data entrusted to us. Quin is both ISO/IEC 27001:2013 and NEN7510 certified. We also follow guidelines and recommendations from the European Data Protection Authorities and have procedures in place to guarantee the integrity, availability and confidentiality of the data that we process.


We do not retain the personal data you have provided for longer than necessary to achieve the purposes for which we collected it. In certain cases, we have a legal obligation to retain personal data for a certain period of time. This may mean that we have to keep your personal data longer, even if you no longer use our services. In addition, when the purpose of the processing is accomplished, we can anonymize your personal data. This happens with the meta data of your video consult (Quin ID, time, duration, location and quality) as well as the symptom checker report. As a result, this data is no longer regarded as personal data.


Sometimes we engage other parties (“processors”) to process personal data on our behalf in the context of our services, such as a software supplier. With these processors we conclude a written data processing agreement in line with the GDPR. This ensures the careful processing of personal data, with safeguards in place to guarantee the adequate protection of our users rights and freedoms.

We use the following processors when providing our services:

  1. for data storage – Amazon Web Services EMEA SARL (AWS), Luxembourg;
  2. for computer services (including cloud services) – Microsoft Ireland Operations, Ltd., Ireland;
