Privacy Policy:

Società Italiana di Gastroenterologia ed Endoscopia Digestiva ("SIGE") operates PCGT.eu and may operate other websites. It is SIGE policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, SIGE collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SIGE purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SIGE visitors use its website. From time to time, SIGE may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

SIGE also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on PCGT.eu blogs/sites. SIGE only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to SIGE websites choose to interact with SIGE in ways that require SIGE to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SIGE gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at PCGT.eu to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with SIGE are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SIGE collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with SIGE. SIGE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

SIGE may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. SIGE may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SIGE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

SIGE discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SIGE behalf or to provide services available at SIGE websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SIGE websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SIGE will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SIGE discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SIGE believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SIGE, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an SIGE website and have supplied your email address, SIGE may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with SIGE and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SIGE takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor's computer, and that the visitor's browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. SIGE uses cookies to help SIGE identify and track visitors, their usage of SIGE website, and their website access preferences. SIGE visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using SIGE websites, with the drawback that certain features of SIGE websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If SIGE, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SIGE goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SIGE may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by SIGE and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, SIGE may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in SIGE sole discretion. SIGE encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a PCGT.eu account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Privacy Policy:

Società Italiana di Gastroenterologia ed Endoscopia Digestiva ("SIGE") operates PCGT.eu and may operate other websites. It is SIGE policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, SIGE collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. SIGE purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SIGE visitors use its website. From time to time, SIGE may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

SIGE also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on PCGT.eu blogs/sites. SIGE only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to SIGE websites choose to interact with SIGE in ways that require SIGE to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SIGE gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at PCGT.eu to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with SIGE are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, SIGE collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with SIGE. SIGE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

SIGE may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. SIGE may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SIGE does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

SIGE discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on SIGE behalf or to provide services available at SIGE websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using SIGE websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. SIGE will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SIGE discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when SIGE believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SIGE, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. SIGE takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

SIGE uses cookies to help SIGE identify and track visitors, their usage of SIGE website, and their website access preferences. SIGE visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using SIGE websites, with the drawback that certain features of SIGE websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If SIGE, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SIGE goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SIGE may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Informativa sul trattamento dei dati personali nel sito www.pcgt.eu della Società Italiana di Gastroenterologia ed Endoscopia Digestiva

La presente informativa è resa ai sensi dell’articolo 13 del d. lgs. n.196 del 2003, Codice in Materia di Protezione dei Dati Personali, agli utenti del portale e dei servizi web accessibili per via telematica a partire dalla pagina iniziale https://www.pcgt.eu. La presente informativa è limitata alla navigazione sul sito PCGT.eu e non ha valore per i siti ad esso esterni, anche se consultati a partire da link presenti sul portale www.pcgt.eu e sui siti tematici. La presente informativa descrive le modalità di gestione del portale web e dei siti tematici della SIGE in relazione al trattamento dei dati personali degli utenti che lo consultano, che scelgono di registrarsi e/o che utilizzano servizi online.

Titolare del trattamento

La consultazione del portale può comportare il trattamento di dati relativi a persone identificate o identificabili (si veda la seguente sezione ‘Tipi di Dati Trattati’). La registrazione al portale e la sottoscrizione di servizi online danno origine a trattamenti di dati personali relativi a persone fisiche o giuridiche. Il titolare del loro trattamento è la Società Italiana di Gastroenterologia ed Endoscopia Digestiva con sede legale in Corso di Francia, 197 – 00191 Roma. Per il trattamento dei dati personali è stato nominato il responsabile nella persona del Segretario SIGE.

Incaricati del trattamento

I trattamenti relativi ai servizi del portale hanno luogo principalmente presso la sede della SIGE. Sono effettuati da personale identificato ed espressamente incaricato in funzione delle specifiche finalità dei servizi richiesti e sottoscritti. Per i trattamenti in oggetto, la SIGE può avvalersi dell’aiuto di aziende esterne, consulenti, consorzi, fornitori di software e servizi operanti, tramite personale identificato e incaricato, nell’ambito delle finalità previste e in modo da garantire la massima sicurezza e riservatezza dei dati.

 Tipi di dati trattati

Consultazione del portale: dati di navigazione

I sistemi informatici e le procedure applicative preposte al funzionamento del portale www.pcgt.eu acquisiscono, nel corso del loro normale esercizio, alcuni dati la cui trasmissione è implicita nell’uso dei protocolli di comunicazione sulla Internet. Tali informazioni vengono utilizzate per ricavare informazioni statistiche anonime sull’uso del portale e per controllarne il corretto funzionamento e non sono associate a utenti identificati; tuttavia per loro natura e mediante associazioni con dati detenuti da terzi, potrebbero consentire l’identificazione degli interessati. Rientra in questa categoria, ad esempio, l’indirizzo IP del sistema utilizzato per collegarsi al portale. Questi dati vengono rimossi dai sistemi dopo l’elaborazione delle statistiche e sono conservati off-line esclusivamente per accertamenti di responsabilità in caso di reati informatici e consultabili solo su richiesta dell’autorità giudiziaria.

Dati forniti volontariamente dall’utente nell’utilizzo di servizi on line

Per l’utilizzo di servizi on-line che prevedono l’autenticazione, la registrazione o l’invio di e-mail sono utilizzati dati personali forniti liberamente dagli utenti secondo diverse modalità:
  • Servizi on line per gli iscritti alla SIGE
    I dati personali dei soci, acquisiti con l’iscrizione o con successive eventuali modalità apposite di raccolta, e i dati personali dei dipendenti e/o collaboratori della SIGE eventualmente acquisti con le procedure e con i servizi on line, saranno trattati per lo svolgimento delle attività istituzionali della SIGE, nei limiti stabiliti dalla legge e dai regolamenti, nel rispetto dei principi generali di trasparenza, correttezza e riservatezza come indicato nel Regolamento di attuazione delle norme in materia di protezione dei dati personali.
  • Registrazione al portale e servizi on line per soggetti esterni alla SIGE
    Persone fisiche o giuridiche esterne alla SIGE possono registrarsi al portale per richiedere particolari servizi on line. In fase di registrazione al portale vengono richiesti alcuni dati personali che servono per l’identificazione del soggetto registrato. In fase di sottoscrizione di servizi online potranno essere richiesti dati aggiuntivi, anche sensibili. Le finalità di trattamento sono diverse a seconda del servizio e descritte in dettaglio nelle relative pagine di sottoscrizione.
  • Invio di mail a indirizzi indicati nel portale
    L’invio facoltativo, esplicito e volontario di posta elettronica agli indirizzi indicati sul sito comporta la successiva acquisizione dell’indirizzo del mittente, necessario per rispondere alle richieste, nonché degli eventuali altri dati personali inseriti nella missiva.

Facoltatività del conferimento dei dati

Alcuni dati richiesti per la registrazione sono obbligatori e il loro mancato conferimento comporta l’impossibilità di registrarsi al portale. In modo analogo la mancata comunicazione di alcuni dati eventualmente richiesti per la sottoscrizione di servizi online può comportare l’impossibilità di fruire del servizio prescelto. I dati di registrazione e quelli di sottoscrizione sono conferiti volontariamente. Il soggetto che effettua la registrazione dà liberamente il consenso al trattamento dei dati, consapevole che in assenza di tale consenso la registrazione e la sottoscrizione dei servizi non possono aver luogo.
Modalità del trattamento
I dati personali sono trattati con strumenti automatizzati per il tempo strettamente necessario a conseguire gli scopi per cui sono stati raccolti. Sono osservate specifiche misure di sicurezza per prevenire la perdita dei dati, usi illeciti o non corretti ed accessi non autorizzati.

Diritti degli interessati

Ai sensi dell’art. 7 del d. lgs. n. 196/2003, l’interessato può esercitare:
  • il diritto di conoscere:
    1. l’origine dei dati personali,
    2. le finalità e modalità del trattamento,
    3. la logica applicata in caso di trattamento effettuato con l’ausilio di strumenti elettronici,
    4. gli estremi identificativi del titolare, dei responsabili, dei soggetti o delle categorie di soggetti ai quali i dati personali possono essere comunicati o che possono venirne a conoscenza;
  • il diritto di ottenere a cura del titolare o del responsabile, senza ritardo:
    1. l’aggiornamento, la rettificazione ovvero, quando vi ha interesse, l’integrazione dei dati,
    2. la cancellazione, la trasformazione in forma anonima o il blocco dei dati trattati in violazione di legge, compresi quelli di cui non è necessaria la conservazione in relazione agli scopi per i quali i dati sono stati raccolti o successivamente trattati,
    3. l’attestazione che le operazioni di cui alle precedenti lettere a-b sono state portate a conoscenza, anche per quanto riguarda il loro contenuto, di coloro ai quali i dati sono stati comunicati o diffusi, eccettuato il caso in cui tale adempimento si rivela impossibile o comporta un impiego di mezzi manifestamente sproporzionato rispetto al diritto tutelato;
  • il diritto di opporsi in tutto o in parte:
    1. per motivi legittimi al trattamento dei dati personali che lo riguardano, ancorché pertinenti allo scopo della raccolta,
    2. al trattamento dei dati personali che lo riguardano ai fini dell’invio di materiale pubblicitario o di vendita diretta ovvero per il compimento di ricerche di mercato o di comunicazione commerciale.

I diritti possono essere esercitati con richiesta al Titolare (Società Italiana di Gastroenterologia ed Endoscopia Digestiva con sede legale in Corso di Francia, 197 – 00191 Roma).
