Privacy policy - Specialist

At Consultly, we respect your right to privacy. Ensuring the protection of the personal data you and your Clients provide to us is our top priority.

Main definitions

Personal data is any information about you that, alone or in combination, allows the person collecting and processing such information (controller) to identify you as a natural person.

Processing of personal data means any operation performed on your personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

Consent of the data subject is any freely given, informed and unambiguous expression of the data subject’s wishes, signifying agreement to the processing of that person’s personal data.

Who is the controller of my personal data?

The controller of your personal data is Consultly Ltd with the address of its registered office at 71-75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9JQ. If you have questions about our Privacy Policy or data protection on our Portal, please email us at

Apart from the controller mentioned above, does any entity process my personal data in connection with my use of the Portal?

Consultly uses a payment processor – Stripe Payments Europe, Ltd. (hereinafter: “Stripe”) based in Ireland – to handle subscriptions and all payment processes (including data collection and processing). The data collected by Stripe may vary depending on the Specialist’s country of operations and its applicable regulations. You can get all up-to-date information about the types of data collected by Stripe, the legal bases, purposes, methods, duration and safeguards of their processing here:

Consultly may also make personal data available in order to fulfill statutory obligations (e.g., at the request of law enforcement agencies), to process claims, and to protect the rights, property (including intellectual property) and safety of individuals.

What data are processed when using the Portal and for what purpose?

Please remember that providing your personal data to Consultly is voluntary, which means that you are not obliged to provide it.

If you do not provide your personal data to Consultly, you will not be able to use all features of the Portal.

How long is my data processed when I use the Portal?

We may keep your personal data for different periods of time, depending on the purpose for which it is processed:

In the case of Specialists, we keep your data for as long as you have an account on our Portal. If you delete your account, or if we have to delete your account (e.g., due to you violating the rules of our Portal or breaking the law), we will delete or render anonymous your personal data. However, we may store some of your data for a longer period in order to comply with legal, tax and accounting requirements (e.g., until the expiration of the statutory statute of limitations for contractual claims or the statute of limitations for tax liabilities arising from the fact that you purchased our services), or if the data is necessary for ongoing or anticipated legal proceedings. We make every effort to keep the retained data to the minimum necessary and for no longer than required.

We also store some of your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest (ours or that of a third party) until you object to the processing or we determine that the data has become obsolete, or we have fulfilled our purpose for using the data.

We are also required to keep some of your data as required by applicable laws, in which case we use it for a period which is in accordance with applicable laws.

Personal data that we process based on your consent is processed until: (i) you withdraw your consent or (ii) the purpose for which the data was collected is fulfilled, whichever comes first.

Is my data transferred outside the European Economic Area?

Your data may be transferred to countries outside the EEA.

Is my personal data profiled?

Your personal data will not be processed by automated means, including profiling.

How is my personal data safeguarded?

To ensure the security of the processing of your personal data, including protection against unauthorized or unlawful processing and accidental loss, destruction or damage, we take, among other things, the following technical and organizational measures:

  • access to the Specialist Account is password protected;
  • passwords to the Specialist Account are encrypted;
  • only the controller responsible for the personal data on the Portal has access to databases;
  • connections on the Portal are encrypted using HTTPS/SSL protocols;
  • backup databases are created;
  • database keys are rotated.

Is information provided to the Specialist by the Client during video consultations, including sensitive data such as health, safe?

As a portal, we do not have access to the data the Client provides to the Specialist during video consultations, and therefore it is not processed by us in any way. As a Specialist, you are responsible for the safety and confidentiality of data concerning health provided by the Client during the video consultations, on the same basis as during an in-person visit. For our part, we ensure the security of the transmission of this data by establishing a network infrastructure that prevents third parties from intercepting the transmitted information. In accordance with the terms and conditions of the Portal, audio or video recording of consultations by either party without the written consent of the other party is prohibited. Consultly does not in any way enable or provide tools for either party to record consultations.

Is my data transferred to separate entities for marketing purposes?

Consultly does not transfer any personal data to other parties for marketing purposes.

Data collected by us automatically through third parties

For statistical purposes, Consultly collects some data automatically (including IP address, browser type, access time, operating system type, information about links that are clicked on or other actions taken on our Portal), using technologies that monitor actions taken on the website – i.e., Mixpanel and Sentry. This data is only material for statistical analysis and system error correction mechanisms, so this data is not combined in any way with other data you provide to us; thus we are not able to identify the data subject based on this data.

What rights do I have regarding Consultly’s processing of my personal data?

Your rights in connection with their processing by Consultly vary depending on the law in your jurisdiction. If you live in the United Kingdom or the European Economic Area, you may request that we provide you with access to the data you have provided to us, rectify it, supplement it, and, with certain restrictions, erase it, restrict and stop its processing, or you may exercise the right to data portability. To do so, please send an email to:

You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data and to withdraw your consent at any time. However, the withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the use (processing) of your personal data before its withdrawal. 

To ensure the security of the processing of your personal data, in cases where we receive a request as mentioned above, we may ask you to provide additional information necessary to confirm your identity, such as an identity document with a recent photograph.
