INFORMATION ABOUT THE PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which Giotto Biotech S.r.l. (referred to hereinafter as "we") collects, holds and uses information about individual persons who visit www.giottobiotech.com (the "Site").

BY USING THE SITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION (INCLUDING PERSONAL DATA) AS SET FORTH IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. YOU ALSO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE MAY PERIODICALLY CHANGE, MODIFY, ADD OR REMOVE OR OTHERWISE UPDATE THIS PRIVACY POLICY IN OUR DISCRETION. When we do make any changes, modifications, additions or removals to this Privacy Policy, we will give you notice of the revised Privacy Policy by posting the revised Privacy Policy on the Site and by revising the "effective date" at the top of this Privacy Policy. However, we will always handle your Information (as defined below) with at least as much protection as provided in the version of the Privacy Policy that was in effect at the time of collection. You are responsible for regularly reviewing the current privacy policy. Our Privacy Policy is located on the Site's homepage and is also available on any page where Personal Data (as defined below) is requested.

This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect from this Site and does not apply to any other website or business activity of Giotto Biotech S.r.l. At data collection points within the Site, further explanation may be provided, where appropriate, as to the purposes for which the data will be used.

1. Information we collect

The term 'Personal Data' as used in this Privacy Policy refers to information such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, and any other information that can be used to identify you or permit us to contact you physically or online. We may collect Personal Data when you register with the Site, place an order on the Site, send us an email or otherwise contact us through the Site, or if you voluntarily choose to provide it to us. You can choose not to provide Personal Data to us. However, if you do not provide such information, you will not be able to register to use the Site, so your ability to use the Site will be limited to those web pages available to unregistered users of the Site. Additionally, you will not be able to place orders on the Site or contact us with questions via email or otherwise through the Site. The next sections explain how and when we process the Information collected from you.

2. Intended use of Information

Most of our services do not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit our site without telling us who you are. However, some services offered on the Site may require you to provide us with Personal Data. In these situations, if you choose to withhold any Personal Data requested by us, it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the Site and for us to respond to your query.

We may collect and use Personal Data for any business purpose, including, but not limited to, the following: to provide you with products or services, to fill, confirm, ship and bill you for products and services you request (and notify you of your order status), to market products and services which we think may be of interest to you, to communicate with you for marketing and promotional purposes via targeted postal pieces or personalized emails, to respond to emails, to provide customer support; to establish your online account, or to communicate with you for other purposes which are evident from the circumstances or about which we inform you when we collect Personal Data from you. We may, in our discretion, utilize the services of a third party or parties to perform any of the purposes described in this Section 2, subject to the other provisions of this Privacy Policy (specifically including those in Section 3 below).

3. Non-disclosure of Information

We will not sell Information to any outside company or third party; provided, however, that Information collected from you may be transferred to a third party in the event that the business of this site or a part of it and/or the customer data connected with it is sold, assigned or transferred, in which case the Information would remain subject to the terms of the pre-existing Privacy Policy in place at the time such Information was collected or updated. We may disclose your Information to Giotto Biotech S.r.l. affiliates worldwide. All of our affiliates agree to treat your Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or in accordance with practices at least as protective as those described in this Privacy Policy. Information may also be transferred to third parties who act for or on our behalf, for further processing in accordance with the purpose(s) for which the data were originally collected or may otherwise be lawfully processed, such as: suppliers who deliver your order and/or provide billing services; credit card companies for payment processing; and other third parties who provide services to us and who agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy (or a policy with terms at least as protective as those described herein). These third parties may provide a variety of services to us including, without limitation, hosting this Site, providing technical support, processing and storing user information, updating your customer information records in our database (including both physical address and email address verification), and sending or coordinating the sending of marketing communications on our behalf. These third parties have contracted with us to only use Personal Data for the agreed upon purpose. These third parties are not authorized to: (i) sell your Personal Data to third parties, (ii) disclose it to third parties except as may be required by law, as permitted by us or as stated in this Privacy Policy; or (iii) otherwise use your Personal Data in a manner inconsistent with the uses described in this Privacy Policy.

4. Right of access, correction and objection

Whenever we process Personal Data, we take reasonable steps to ensure that your Personal Data is kept accurate and up-to date for the purposes for which it was collected. In the case of direct marketing, we will provide you with a method to opt out of receiving further direct marketing materials or, if required by law, with a method to opt in. You may object to our processing of your Personal Data on the grounds that such processing is not: (i) in conformity with the uses described in this Privacy Policy; or (ii) reasonably required for our compliance with law. If you wish to contact us regarding our use of your Personal Data or object to the processing of your Personal Data, please email Giotto Biotech S.r.l. at info@giottobiotech.com. If you contact us, please note the name of the website where you provided your Personal Data, as well as the specific Personal Data information you would like us to correct, update or delete plus a proper identification of you. Requests to delete Personal Data will be subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document filing or retention obligations imposed on us.

5. Links to other sites

While you are using this Site, you may be linked or directed to other third party sites outside of the Site that are beyond our control. Each of these third party sites may have a privacy policy different from ours. For example, you might click on a link or banner ad that will take you off the Site.
