Article 13 DSGVO: Purposes of processing and their legal basis
Purpose: Creation of a customer account
In order to use our services, it is necessary to create a customer account. For the creation you need to enter
– First name
– e-mail address
on our website my.novatium.at.
Legal basis: We need this information to enable you to receive test kits and subsequently send you the test result in the customer area.
To create the account, we will send you an email to confirm and set a password.
With your e-mail address and password, you can then log into the customer area on our website.
The creation of the customer account is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract for the processing of the testing and is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (contract initiation and fulfillment).
In addition, registration prevents the misuse of test kits and is therefore in our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interest).
Purpose: Creation of users
When you are logged in, you can create multiple users who can use the same customer account.
This is primarily to allow people who do not have a smartphone to access our services.
The following information is required to create a user:
– First name
– Last name
– Social security number
– Travel document number
– E-mail Address
– Telephone Number
– Your Address
Legal basis: The data is necessary to provide you with free test kits and to subsequently assign and deliver the test result to you.
The social security number is necessary to check whether you are entitled to free test kits due to a valid health insurance and to prevent misuse.
The address is necessary to determine whether you have your domicile or residence in Tyrol, especially since the offer is limited exclusively to persons with domicile or residence in Tyrol.
E-mail address and telephone number are necessary to inform you about the existence of the test result.
The legal bases are the fulfillment of the contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (contract initiation and fulfillment), our legitimate interests in preventing abuse according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO (legitimate interests), public interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e DSGVO in preventing abuse (public interests).
The collection of this data is also partly necessary to comply with our legal reporting obligation under the Epidemiegesetz Act.
In this respect, the legal manufacturing fact of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO (legal obligation) is present.
Purpose: Registration and execution of the test
With the number of the QR code or barcode on the test kit or by scanning the QR code with your camera, you can register a performed test in our system and hand it in at one of the return stations.
In this way, a link is made between the user of the customer account who performed the test and the specific sample.
In our system, the following additional categories of data are generated, linked and stored after the test is registered:
– Event number
– event ID
– QR code of the sample
(after the evaluation of the test) the findings, i.e. the result of the medical diagnostics.
Legal basis: We base this processing, in particular the preparation of the findings, on the grounds of medical diagnostics for the purpose of preventive health care and the existence of a public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) lit. h and i DSGVO. Among other things, we have the qualification of a natural science laboratory, which is allowed to carry out COVID-19 tests according to § 28c Epidemiegesetz.
Furthermore, the preparation of the result and the test result derived from it is our contractual core service, so that this processing is justified according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b (contractual performance) and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f (legitimate interest).
It is pointed out that due to legal obligation according to § 2 para. 1 and § 3 para. 1 line 1a Epidemiegesetz, we are obliged to transmit certain personal data to the competent district administrative authority (health office) in case of a positive test result.
Based on legal obligation, these results are reported by us to the Epidemiological Reporting System (EMS) according to § 4 Epidemiegesetz and the Ordinance on Electronic Laboratory Reports to the Register of Notifiable Diseases (BGBl II 2013/184).
Purpose: Delivery of the test result
After evaluation of the sample, we will transmit your test result based on the generated report by sending a link to download the document via e-mail and/or via SMS.
The following data will be recorded on the test result:
– First name
– date of birth
– Time when the test result was issued and whether the test result is positive or negative (“proven” or “not proven”)
Legal basis: The legal basis for the delivery of the test result is the fulfillment of our contractual obligation according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (fulfillment of contract).
The test result is also a health data and therefore a sensitive personal data according to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO.
The processing is only permissible if one of the reasons according to Art. 9 (2) DSGVO applies.
We base the implementation of the processing on the grounds of medical diagnostics for the purpose of preventive health care and the existence of a public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) lit. h and i DSGVO. The national legal basis is, among others, Section 28c and Section 4c (2) last sentence of the Epidemics Act and the relevant COVID-19 legislation.
For the rest, we refer to the explanations in the point above.
