Health Engine exposed….don’t be next…
You may have heard that Health Engine (online doctor’s appointment booking service) has been providing private medical information to third parties and this information has ended up at a well- known personal injuries firm. Many users of Health Engine were unaware that this was happening and are understandably outraged.
How do you use the data that your business collects? Do you pass data onto third parties? If you answer ‘yes’ to either of these questions, have you obtained proper consent to use the data in this way? Are you transparent in your dealings with personal data?
