This includes data required for scheduling appointments, providing fertility treatments, managing patient records, and processing payments for the services rendered.


  • Legitimate Interests: TFP process personal data based on legitimate interests pursued by TFP or third parties. For instance, these legitimate interests might include improving the quality of fertility treatments, conducting research to enhance fertility outcomes, or optimizing internal processes to ensure better patient care.
