Privacy law
Pursuant to Article 13 of the Privacy Code (Italian Legislative Decree no. 196 of 30 June 2003), below we set out our statement concerning handling of the personal data of Users/Members who interact with the ISGE website (hereinafter “Users/Members”) starting from the address www.isge.org (hereinafter “Site”).

 

1. Data Controller
The Data Controller responsible for the handling of Site Users/Members personal data is the Society International Society for Gyneacological Endoscopy Secretary Via de Rossi, 57 – 70124 Bari, Italy.

 

2. Purpose of Data Handling and Processing
Users/Members’ data are collected and used to create a personal member profile, to permit browsing on the Site, improve the browsing experience and also to respond to any requests or communications from Users/Members.

 

3. Types of Data Handled and Processed
Browsing data: during the course of their normal operation, the information technology systems and software procedures used to operate this Site capture some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. These are items of information that are not collected to be associated with identified interested parties but that, by virtue of their intrinsic nature, could make it possible, via processing and association with data held by third parties, to identify the Users/Members. This category of data includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used by Users who connect to the Site, the addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) format of the resources requested, the time when the request is made, 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 server (e.g. OK, error, etc.) and other parameters concerning the Users/Members’s operating system and computer environment. These data are used solely for the purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on Site utilization, to check that the Site is working properly, and to improve the User browsing experience. They are deleted immediately after processing. The data may be used to ascertain liability in the event of hypothetical cybercrimes to the detriment of the Site.
Data voluntarily provided by Users/Members and mandatory fields: when subscribing ISGE, the User/Member dispatches explicitly and voluntarily some personal data (such as first name and surname). This involves subsequent acquisition of sender’s address and other data (in the mandatory fields) – necessary to respond to requests – as well as of any other personal data included in the message and for the creation of the Users/Members’ profile.

 

4. How Data are Handled and Processed
Handling and processing is done by means of automated tools (e.g. using electronic procedures and supports) and/or manually (e.g. physical supports) for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data have been collected and, in any case, in compliance with current relevant regulatory requirements. Specific security measures are observed to prevent loss of data, unlawful use or abuse and unauthorized access.

 

5. Security and Confidentiality
To ensure the security and confidentiality of Personal Data that we collect online (D.P.R. 28 luglio 1999, n. 318 e del Decreto Legislativo 196/03 and related Italian law), we use data networks protected, inter alia, by industry standard firewall and password protection.  The access to your personal data is exclusively permitted to authorised employees “Appointed” by ISGE and who have a real necessity to use these Data and are instructed to treat them properly, resepcting security and confidentiality principles.  In the course of handling your Personal Data, we take measures reasonably designed to protect that information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

 

6. Cookies and JavaScript Codes
The Site may feature use of web-tracking systems, such as cookies or JavaScript codes. These are electronic recordings of information transmitted by a web server to the user’s computer for future identification of that computer when future visits are made to the same website. These tools help to facilitate analysis of web traffic, permit correct operation of the Site and enable web applications to send information to individual users.
As regards Site Users/Members who merely browse the Site without filling in forms or spontaneously sending their personal data, and without prejudice for what is specified below concerning specific software, no use is made of cookies for the transmission of information of a personal nature nor is any type of so-called persistent cookie used, i.e. user-tracking systems.
The session cookies used in this Site avoid the use of other electronic technologies potentially jeopardizing the confidentiality of Users/Members’ browsing and they do not permit the capture of personal data identifying the Users/Members. The User/Member can delete cookies from his/her system at all times, using different procedures depending on the browser used, or can set his/her browser to reject cookies and disenable JavaScript. In this case, however, there is no guarantee of proper operation of all the tools that ISGE makes available to you.

 

7. Communication of Data to Third Parties
Saving any handling and processing performed by third parties appointed by ISGE to manage the Site, duly appointed as external processors, no information collected during Users/Members’ browsing of the Site is communicated to third parties or disclosed.

 

8. Rights of those Concerned (Article 7 of Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003)
You have the right at all times to obtain confirmation of the existence of otherwise of your data and know their contents and origin, check their accuracy or ask for them to be supplemented, amended or rectified. Pursuant to the same article, you have the right to ask for the deletion, conversion into anonymous form or blocking of data handled and processed in breach of the law, as well as to oppose, for legitimate reasons, their handling and processing. Requests should be sent by email to this website.
