Through this Platform, we offer some assistance programs ("Assistance Programs" to people undergoing treatment with medications from Tuteur ("Patients" or "Users").
The aims of Assistance Programs are (1) to provide Patients with information, orientation and guidance on access to medication in general; (2) to accompany Patients during the medical treatment prescribed by a health professional; (3) to promote active involvement of Patients and their closed ones in healthcare; and (4) to guide Patients on the necessary steps in order to get access to medication (the "Assistance Program Objectives").
In order to achieve Assistance Program Objectives, we familiarize with the Patients and go through all the process with them to obtain the medication prescribed by health professionals. This allows for minimizing formalities and enhancing administrative management linked to access to medication.
Assistance Programs are free and Users can get access to them by telephone, e-mail or the Platform.
To access Assistance Programs, the Platform will ask Users to agree on Tuteur, on behalf of Assistance Programs, contacting them by telephone, e-mail or other means of the sort provided by the Users.
To achieve Assistance Program Objectives, Tuteur's representatives will also ask Users for personal data instructed in Item II, to which only Tuteur will have access. Said personal data will be stored in a database permanently protected, and it will be safeguarded pursuant to Personal Information Protection Law N° 25.326. Users may at any time revoke permission given to Tuteur.
