.@babylonhealth is definitely NOT compliant with PIPEDA in Canada, HIPAA in the US nor GDPR. Appalling that the @shandro and the @Alberta_UCP would recommend that Canadians use a service that breaks Canadian privacy law. They clearly didn't look at the privacy policy.
For GDPR they should be identifying who their data processors are and in which country. They also should identify which data specifically they store.
Let's retain EVERYTHING!!! Including all the details of all your children for 25 years after your LAST born child. This is worse than @facebook. @BrittanyKaiser1 and @Snowden have you seen this?!
Just read section 2 on consent in the #Alberta Privacy Legislation. Does storing all your information (even 10 years after you are dead) and burying that in a privacy policy seem like reasonable disclosure and consent?…
If you want a good cross section as to which laws apply and links information on #Canadian #Healthcare #privacy laws you can look here:…
It should be the other way around. You SHOULD store patient data on the device ENCRYPTED and NOT on your servers. @babylonhealth might be building one of the biggest data honeypots out there. Storing video recordings of private conversations with a physician?! I'm shocked. 😳
Tried the app with some bogus info. No prompts for disclosure and consent about recording your video or voice, or keeping records for 25 years.
They don’t even mention that in their privacy policy on mobile. And they don’t even get you to scroll to the bottom to be sure you’ve read it (hint @babylonhealth probably doesn’t want you to).
.@TELUS I know you are using @babylonhealth under the hood and may not have been aware. I know how these enterprise deals go, but your privacy policy also isn't any good either.…

You both should be providing proper disclosures.
Oooh nice. Here is one better in @TELUSHealth business customer privacy policy.…

They admit that data will be out of country. To be compliant with PIPEDA and GDPR in Europe you need to disclose to END USERS which date, who has it, and which country. 🤨
Since that isn't in the @TELUSHealth consumer policy & the @babylonhealth app uses a policy different than both that one and their online one I'd hardly say that checking a box is "having meaningful consent" of being recorded while talking about sensitive health info.
Canada has good privacy laws. They need to be respected. @TELUS if you need help, there are pretty clear guidelines right here:…
