Users’ collected data will be processed by the Data Controller:

  • WEBSITE OPERATION: in order to pursue a legitimate interest of the Data Controller, consisting of guaranteeing the security of the Website and the information exchanged on it, that is the capacity of such Website at a given level of security to withstand unforeseen events, unlawful acts, or malicious actions that compromise the availability, authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of the personal data stored or transmitted, and the security of the related services offered or made accessible.

For the purposes of Art. 2(a) above, personal data will be processed for the period strictly necessary for the pursuit of the aforementioned objectives, and subsequently for the fulfilment of legal obligations and/or purposes of defence for the maximum duration provided for by law.

Data provided in the contact request for an appointment will be stored (i) when booking an appointment, until the medical service is provided and for the time required by law for the processing activity; (ii) the data will be immediately cancelled in the event of a missed appointment or non-willingness not to carry out treatments with Prof. Bertossi.

Processing activities will be carried out both on paper and electronically, with the aid of modern computer systems and manual methods, solely by persons expressly appointed for this purpose. Processing activities will take place with logics and by way of data organisation that is strictly related to the obligations, tasks, or purposes mentioned above. The data controller uses technical and organisational measures to protect the data in its possession from manipulation, loss, destruction, and access by unauthorised persons. Security measures are continuously improved based on technological development.

The provision of the data referred to in point 1(b) is optional. If the data is not provided, the User cannot be contacted.

The personal data of the User will be processed by subjects authorised to carry out these tasks, duly appointed as data processors or managers, equipped with security measures designed to guarantee the confidentiality of the parties to whom the data relate, and to avoid undue access to third parties or unauthorised personnel. Within the limits strictly relevant to the obligations, tasks, or purposes referred to in point 2, if necessary, data collected may be communicated to public or private subjects or the competent authorities for the purposes of prevention, detection, or combatting crimes, in compliance with the rules governing the subject matter. No data will be distributed.

The updated list of all data processors is available at the office of Prof. Bertossi, and can be requested by contacting info@dariobertossi.com. This list can be subsequently integrated and/or updated as needed.

User data is saved on electronic media, and is kept and stored on a server located in the European Union.

Users are entitled to know their rights, which essentially consist of the right to receive information from the other party as to the existence of the processing of their personal data, as well as access their data, obtain their correction, integration, update, deletion or blocking. Users also have the right to obtain a copy of their data, to limit processing, and to oppose its processing, in addition to the right to data portability and to propose a complaint to the competent control authorities under the conditions and within the limits indicated in Art. 13 of the Regulation.
