Why this notice?
This notice is served in compliance with article 13, Legislative Decree no. 196/2003 – Privacy Act, to people interacting with the online services of formulamedicine.com as to protection of personal data that are electronically accessible from:
which is the first page of the website.
This notice only applies to formulamedicine.com, and any other website that the user can link to is excluded.
This notice also adheres to Recommendation no. 2/2001 that the European Data Protection Authorities grouped together under article no. 29 of EC Directive no. 95/46/CE, passed on 17th May 2001, listing the minimum requirements for storage of personal data, in terms of methods, timing and type of information that processors shall provide to users who log on to a web page, for whatever reason.
Use of this website may result in the processing of data about identified or identifiable users.
The processor is “Formula Medicine S.r.l.”, Via Don Bosco, 193 – 55049 Viareggio (LU) – Italy.
In connection with the web services of this website, data are processed at the above address and at the operating unit in Via dei Carpentieri, 53 – 55040 Capezzano Pianore (LU) – Italy; data are only processed by technical staff from the Data Processing Department or by third-party professionals.
Data associated with such web services shall be treated as confidential.
Personal data entered by users to ask for illustrative materials are only used to provide the service and will not be disclosed to any third party, unless required for such purpose.
Nature of data
Usually, the electronic systems and software procedures that run this website may store personal data that users provide when using any online communication protocol.
Such data will not be matched with identified users but, because of their nature, if processed or associated with other people’s details, they could make the user identifiable.
Such data include IP addresses or domain names of the users’ computer, URIs (Uniform Resource Identifier), time of enquiry, method of enquiry, size of received file, numerical code of server’s response Status (successful, error, etc.) and other information about the user’s operating system and digital environment.
Such information is only processed into anonymous statistics to get an insight into the way the website is used and how well it works, and it is deleted once processed. Data could be used to investigate cyber-crimes: except for such circumstance, data about web contacts are deleted after no more than seven days.
User’s voluntary data
When users optionally, expressly or voluntarily send an email to the addresses listed in this website, the senders’ addresses are saved to respond to their requests, along with any other personal data included in the message.
The users’ personal data are not collected by the website for this purpose.
No cookies are used to send personal information and no persistent cookies are sent to track users.
Session cookies (which are not permanently saved on the user’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed) are only used to send session IDs (random numbers generated by the server) for a safe, efficient exploration of the website.
Session cookies used on this website replace other electronic techniques that could potentially impair the confidentiality of the user’s browsing and they will not store the user’s ID details.
Except as we said about browsing data, users are free to provide their personal data through the enquiry forms available at formulamedicine.com or otherwise named as Contacts to send enquiries or for any other communication.
Such data need to be provided if the user wants to receive what he/she asked for.
For the sake of completeness, note that sometimes (this is not the case on this website) the processor may ask for information or news under article no. 157 of Legislative Decree no. 196/2003, to monitor the processing of personal data. In such cases, users are compelled to abide by such request; otherwise, they could be legally prosecuted.
Personal data are processed by automatic tools just for the time it takes to achieve the purposes they have been collected for.
Specific safety measures are taken to prevent any loss of data, illegal or improper use, or unauthorised access to such data.
At any time, users are entitled to be confirmed of the existence of such personal data and to be made aware of their content and source, to check if they are accurate or ask that they be updated or added to, or corrected, pursuant to article no. 7, Legislative Decree no. 196/2003.
Pursuant to the above article, users are entitled to ask that any data that is processed in breach of the law be deleted, transformed into an anonymous form or blocked, and in any case to reasonably oppose to have their data processed.
This Privacy Notice may be digitally consulted by the latest browsers that implement the P3P standard (Platform for Privacy Preferences Project) of the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3c.org).
Best efforts will be made to make the website’s features as interoperable as possible with the automatic privacy monitoring systems available on some of the users’ products.
Since the state of the art of these automatic privacy-monitoring systems
does not make them error- or failure-free yet, this document, posted at
