E-Health services, wearables, or apps are increasingly coupled with such geolocation data. Both e-Health and geolocation data are highly sensitive with regard to personal data and their combination even increases the sensitivity level. The presentation is intended to shed light on the data protection perspective of providing location-based services in the e-Health sector, namely considering the European GDPR and experiences gained one year after its entry into effect and summarizes the obligations for companies (worldwide) arising from the GDPR in relation to geolocation data linked to health data, including for data processing in the R&D context, user consent, data protection principles and specific compliance obligations, such as impact assessments.
