Quantum Surgical SAS places the utmost importance on protecting your personal data and complying with the General Data Protection Regulation.

The purpose of this Transparency Portal is to provide you with clear and transparent information on how we process and use your personal data in the context of our health data warehouse authorized by the French Data Protection Authority (CNIL Decision DT2023-015 of Application for Leave No. 2230868).


The Transparency Portal is regularly updated to take account of new research we carry out. We invite you to consult it regularly.

Purposes of processing your personal data

The aim of the processing is to create a health data warehouse, in other words a database designed to bring together data from different sources that will be reused to conduct studies and research in interventional radiology to assist in the treatment of cancer patients, and in particular :

  • identifying potential technical improvements in the use of the device ;
  • the study and development of new functionalities for the device.

This warehouse is constituted on the basis of Quantum Surgical’s legitimate interest in carrying out such projects (Article 6.1 f) of the GDPR). The processing of health data is necessary for the purposes of scientific research (Art. 9.2 j) of the GDPR) and to ensure high standards of quality and safety of medical devices (Art. 9.2 i) of the GDPR).

Our ambition:

All research and studies carried out from this warehouse will be described in this Transparency Portal. We are not currently conducting any research here.
