Physicians can use Neptune to monitor patients’ health and motor fluctuations using a smartwatch and smartphone with the Neptune app to evaluate symptoms and optimize necessary medications for the disease.
To use Neptune, physicians need to add patient’s data to their Neptune dashboard to monitor their treatment of Parkinson’s disease. To do so, patients must declare consent to their attending physician who is classified as controller according to Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR. By adding a patient, the following personal data of the patient are usually processed on the Neptune platform:
|First Name||Last Name||Email address|
|Date of Birth||Height (cm)||Weight (kg)|
|Diary entries||Sense of wellbeing entries||Sense of symptom control entries|

In giving your consent, you are doing so to both the physician and the provider of the platform.
V. Data erasure and storage duration
Your personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject.
VI. Objection, withdrawal and removal options
You can opt out the consent to processing your data at any time by addressing it to the attending physician or the provider of the platform. By this your data will be deleted unless legal requirements require retention as mentioned above.
