Wherever established by the Italian PDPA, the consent of users will be requested prior to processing their personal data. Where users provide personal data of third parties, they must take prior action to ensure that the disclosure of such data to the Company (and the subsequent processing for the purposes specified in the Information Notice) is compliant with the Italian PDPA, as well as with the applicable laws and regulations: by way of example, users may provide personal data of third parties only after having duly informed them and upon receiving their specific consent.

Types of Processed Data
Visiting or consulting the Website does not usually entail the collection and processing of the user’s personal data, with the exception of “navigation data” and cookies as detailed below. In addition to so-called navigation data –see below–, the personal data that users voluntarily provide to the Company –either when they interact with some functions of the Website or when they require certain services available on the Site– may also be processed. In compliance with the Italian PDPA, the Company, in the pursuit of its activities, may also gather the user’s personal data through third parties.
Navigation Data and Cookies
The processing of the personal data of users who visit the Website is limited to so-called “navigation data”, i.e. the data transmitted to the Website and required to operate the computerised systems set up for the Website’s management, as well as Internet communication protocols. By way of example, the IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used to visit the Website and the other parameters relating to the operating system used to connect to the Website all fall in this category. The Company collects such and other data (for example, the number of visits and the time spent on the Website) for truly statistical purposes and in an anonymous manner in order to monitor the functioning of the Website and improve its efficiency. The data in question are neither collected to be associated with other information regarding the users of the Site nor do they make the identification of users possible; however, due to its nature, such data may potentially lead to the identification of users if processed and associated with other data held by third parties. For this reason, navigation data are immediately de-identified after processing and may only be retrieved by the Company to ascertain, as well as identify the authors of, potential IT-related offenses committed to the detriment of the Website or through the Website. Notwithstanding the latter exception, navigation data as described above are only kept for a limited time, in compliance with the applicable legal provisions.
Cookies are small files saved on the hard disk. There exist two macro-categories of cookies: “technical cookies” and “profiling cookies”.
Technical cookies are necessary for the correct functioning of a website and make navigation possible for the user; without them, the user may be unable to view the website’s pages correctly or to use some services.
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles of the user so as to send on-line commercial ads in line with the preferences the user has expressed during navigation.
Cookies can further be classified as:
The types of cookie used on the Website
The Website uses the following types of cookies:
(i) “first party” cookies, which can be either “session” or “persistent”; these are necessary to make the navigation of the Website possible, and are required for purposes of internal security and system administration;
(ii) “third-party” cookies, which can be either “session” or “persistent”; these are necessary to enable the viewer to use those multimedia elements that are present on the Website, such as images and videos;
(iii) “third-party”, “persistent” cookies, used by the Website in order to send statistical information to the Google Analytics system, through which the Company may carry out statistical analyses of the accesses/visits to the Website. These cookies are used exclusively for statistical purposes and retain information in aggregate form. Using a pair of cookies (respectively, a persistent cookie and a session cookie, the latter of which is deleted when the user closes the browser), Google Analytics also saves the timestamp of the start of the visit and the exit from the Website. It is possible to prevent Google from using cookies to collect data, and therefore to prevent their consequent processing, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following website: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it
(iv) “third-party”, “persistent” cookies, used by the Website to include in its pages the buttons of some social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google+). By selecting one of these buttons, users may publish on their personal page of the relevant social network the content of the Website’s webpage they are navigating.
(v) third-party, persistent, profiling cookies (exelator.com) which may be used by the third-party company eXelate -part of the Nielsen Group- to carry out “user profiling” actions, designed to perform targeted marketing activities.

Retention and Storage of Personal Data
Personal data are retained and processed by computerised systems that belong to the Company and are managed either by the Company or by third-party suppliers of technical services; for more details please refer to the “Data Access” section below. Data are only processed by highly qualified personnel, including the personnel appointed to carry out extraordinary maintenance operations.
Purposes and Methods of Data Processing
The Company may process the user’s common or sensitive personal data for the following purposes: management of communications (including notification of pharmacovigilance events), management of requests for information, management of job applications, etc.
Furthermore, upon additional, optional consent of the user, personal data may also be processed by the Company for marketing purposes. This includes providing users with promotional material and/or commercial information relating to the Company’s services, both by traditional (for example: hard copy mail, operator calls, etc.) and automated methods (for example: e-mail, fax, text messages, mobile and smartphone apps, social network accounts, i.e. via Facebook or Twitter, etc.).
The user’s personal data are processed both in paper and in electronic form, in compliance with the Italian PDPA, including the standards of data security and confidentiality, and in line with the principles of fair and legal data processing. Pursuant to Section 11 of the Italian PDPA, the user’s data are retained for the time strictly necessary to achieve the specific purpose for which they were collected.
Safety and Quality of Personal Data
The Company undertakes to protect the security of the user’s personal data and to fulfill the safety provisions established by the Italian PDPA, with particular, but not exclusive, reference to Annex B to the PDPA (“Technical Disciplinary Guidelines on minimum security measures”) and by all other applicable legal provisions in order to prevent the data’s loss, illegal or illicit use and unauthorised access thereto.
The Company has adopted appropriate technical measures, such as multiple advanced safety technologies and procedures, to protect data against alteration, loss and unauthorised access: for example, users’ personal data are stored on servers located in rooms with restricted access and subject to controls. Moreover, the information systems and computer programs used by the Company are set up in such a way as to minimise the use of personal and/or identification data. Data are processed to the strictest necessary extent and only in order to achieve the specific purpose of their collection. Users may help the Company to update and/or to ensure the correctness of their personal data by communicating any changes of their address, qualifications, contact details, etc.
Scope of Data Access
The users’ personal data will be accessible within the Company only by those personnel members in charge of the processing of data who, by reason of their duties, may need to process such data to manage the requests of users. Data may be disclosed to other employees of the Company as well as to other companies of the Menarini Group for the same purposes as stated above and/or for administrative purposes, pursuant to Section 34, Paragraph 1-ter, of the Italian PDPA.
Without prejudice for the provisions of the above paragraph, the personal data of users will not be communicated to third parties, be they natural or legal persons, and will not be disseminated in any other manner or form.
Provision of Personal Data
Where marked by an asterisk [*] the user’s data are necessary for the Company to process the enquiries received through the Site or to contact the user to follow up their requests. The user’s refusal to provide such data will prevent the Company from providing the requested services. Provision of any other data not marked by an asterisk is optional: the user’s refusal will not have any actual implication.
Providing the user’s personal data for marketing purposes as specified in the section “Purposes and Methods of Data Processing” is optional: the user’s refusal to provide such data will not determine any actual implication. The consent of users to the processing of their personal data for marketing purposes is meant to include communications by traditional and automated methods, as above exemplified.
Users may at any time exercise the rights established by Section 7 of the Italian PDPA, including the right to receive confirmation of the existence of their personal data within the Company, the right to check the content, source and accuracy of their data, and/or to request that their data are updated, erased and/or de-identified, if unlawfully processed, as well as the right to stop the processing of such data for any legitimate reason.
Please be informed that, pursuant to the Italian PDPA, the right of users to stop the processing of their data for marketing purposes is meant to include communications performed both via automated and traditional methods. However, users are also entitled to exercise their right in such a way as to receive marketing communications only on paper (and not via email), or the other way around.
Users may at any time lodge a request with the Data Controller at the above address to receive information on the processing of their personal data by the Company, to exercise the rights established by the Italian PDPA, as well as to receive the updated list of subjects to whom their data are accessible.
