Browsing data

During normal operation, the IT systems and software procedures used in the operation of this website acquire certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with identified individuals, but by its nature it could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes the IP addresses of the computers used by users connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given to the server (successful, error etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and to the user’s computer environment.

These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information regarding use of the site and to check that it is working correctly. They are stored on the organisation’s servers for the period indicated in paragraph no. 10. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the website.


The legal basis for data processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller referred to in Art. 6 para. 1(f) of European Regulation no 679/2016.


All processing takes place through the adoption of security, technical and organisational measures, appropriate to the processing itself as set out in Article 32 of the Regulation. All data are processed electronically and measures to minimise processing are implemented, as regards the type of data, access authorisations and storage times.


The data may be disclosed:

  1. to those subjects (e.g. administrative, judicial, supervisory and control authorities) to which such disclosure must take place in order to fulfil an obligation established by law, by a regulation or by EU legislation;
  2. third parties, suppliers of products and/or services.

Depending on the situation, these recipients process personal data as independent data controllers or processors.

Furthermore, natural persons belonging to the following categories may become aware of the data as persons authorised to process them and only in relation to the data necessary to carry out the tasks assigned to them: employees of CD Pharma or seconded to it, contract workers, interns, consultants and employees of external companies appointed as processors.


No data transfer to a non-EU country or international organisation is envisaged.


The subjects to whom the personal data refer, pursuant to Article 13 of Regulation (EU) 679/2016, have the right at any time to obtain confirmation as to whether or not data concerning him or her exist and find out their content and origin, verify their accuracy or request to integrate, update or rectify them. The subjects to whom the personal data refer also have the right to request erasure, transmission of data to other controllers, anonymisation or blocking of data processed in violation of the law, as well as to oppose processing in any case, for legitimate reasons. Data subjects also have the right to appeal to the supervisory authority (Italian Data Protection Authority).

Requests relating to Article 13 of Regulation (EU) 679/2016 must be addressed to the Data Controller at the Cooperative’s certified e-mail address.


CD Pharma will process the personal data collected as strictly necessary in order to pursue the predetermined purposes; the data collected with the cookies indicated in this policy will be kept for a maximum period of 1 year from acquisition, subject to an extension in the event of a dispute (until the dispute is resolved).


You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority, the “Italian Data Protection Authority” in the event that you believe that your rights in the field of personal data protection are at risk [garanteprivacy.it].


Your data will not be included in any automated decision-making processes.
