Each of these entities, in view of the relationship established with the Data Subject, is the entity Responsible for the Processing of his/her personal data under the terms defined by the legislation on personal data.


The purpose of this document is to define a data protection policy that sets out and makes known the principles of protection and processing of personal data followed by FH Group, in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as other legislation on privacy and personal data in effect at any given time.


In the course of its business, FH Group may have access to two types of data: personal data and health data.


Personal data can be defined as information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an electronic identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.


Health data are personal data relating to the physical or mental health of a natural person, including the provision of health services, which reveal information about his or her state of health.




The Data Protection Officer for your personal data may be different depending on the time of collection and the relationship you establish with Future Healthcare Group.


In the case of this website, we only collect data through the contact forms, when you send us a contact request, and/or through cookies. In both cases the Data Controller will be:

– FH – FUTURE HEALTHCARE – SERVIÇOS DE SAÚDE E ASSISTÊNCIA, S.A., NIPC 506518434, with registered office at Av. Marechal Craveiro Lopes, n.º 6, 1700 – 284 Lisboa;



The data collected by FH Group are those that are appropriate for its activities, relevant and limited to the intended purposes, namely for the provision of the services contracted to us by the Data Subjects and/or by other Data Controllers, when we act as subcontractors, such as in cases where we manage your health insurance and your data are provided to us by your insurer.


Similarly, your data may be provided to us by business partners with whom we have established a business collaboration for the purpose of providing a service, in which case we act jointly with the respective partners as joint controllers.


The data may thus be collected in person, by telephone, e-mail or in writing.



Some of the personal data we request is mandatory, so without it, we will not be able to provide the product or service. In these cases, the customer will always be informed of this obligation.

Depending on the context, we may process the following personal data:
