Processing of your personal data

Personal data are necessary to be able to guarantee safety and traceability when manufacturing medicines from plasma components. The data relates to processes before, during and after the manufacture, reports relating to side effects and also to clinical scientific research.

  • Consent;
  • Performance of a contract;
  • A legal obligation;
  • Legitimate interest of SPP or a third party.

  • Ensuring high standards of quality and safety of medical products;

SPP takes all precautionary measures to protect your privacy and, where necessary, to prevent your interests from being conflicted. SPP can supply more information on request about how the interests are weighed up.
