You can unsubscribe from Google Ads by going to http://www.google.com/ads/preferences. If you do not wish your data to be used by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out function on your browser, on the Google Analytics opt-out page.

Processing requests and general communication with you

Legal basis for processing
Under European data protection laws, the processing of your personal data by ITENA Clinical must have a valid legal basis. The legal basis that applies in each different scenario depends on the specific purposes for which ITENA Clinical is processing your data, stipulated below:
In certain cases, ITENA Clinical may seek your consent for collecting and processing your personal data. If you decide to give your consent, you can retract it subsequently by contacting us via the procedure described in the section “Your choices with regard to confidentiality”. Please note that withdrawal of consent does not have any impact on any processing that has already taken place.
In other situations, the processing of your personal data may be required under a particular law or regulation, or to honour a contract by which you are obliged. It is possible you may not be able to refuse this processing, or that if you refuse, our capacity to honour our contractual obligations towards you may be affected.
In other circumstances, ITENA Clinical may process your personal data if it is in its interest to communicate with you on the subject of its goods and services or its scientific research and training possibilities. You have the right to refuse such processing of your personal data. To do so, contact us by the procedure described in the section “Your choices with regard to confidentiality”.
We only share your information with third parties as described below. We do not sell or lease your personal data to third parties for their own marketing purposes.
Third-party advertising and online behavioural advertising
Third-party sites and mobile services may bring up customized online advertisements for ITENA Clinical goods and services. These may be personalised on the basis of the information that you have provided to ITENA Clinical, a third-party site that you visit, as a result of your browsing activity, your purchases or your interests. This type of targeted online advertising may come from different sources, such as:
- We may give your non-identifying information, obtained via cookies and other tracking technologies on our ITENA Clinical sites, to our advertising services providers.
- Certain internet browsers may send “unfollow” signals to sites with which they communicate. At the date of this Confidentiality Statement, no sectoral regulation has been drawn up on the processing of these signals. ITENA Clinical does not, therefore, take these signals into account.
Affiliates, suppliers and providers
We have built relations with suppliers and affiliated companies that help us to carry out our business. They may need to have access to your personal data in the context of the services that they provide to ITENA Clinical. We will not authorise any of these third parties to use your personal data for any commercial use other than that of ITENA Clinical and its associated affiliates. We do not share personal data from countries that require consent, unless a sharing agreement has been reached with the associated affiliates in advance. We require them to process our personal data in respect of this Confidentiality Statement.
We may sign a partnership agreement with other companies to provide you with joint or “co-branded” content or services. When a site is co-branded, the ITENA Clinical logo and that of the co-branding partner will appear on your screen. You should consult the confidentiality policies of each of our co-branding partners as they may differ from ours in certain aspects. If you read these policies, you can take informed decisions when you are asked to provide information on a particular site.
Report on products
If you contact ITENA Clinical on the subject of your experience with one of our products, we may send the information that you provide in your report to regulatory government authorities, if required to do so by law.
Legal rights and obligations
In certain defined circumstances ITENA Clinical may disclose your personal data to comply with a legal obligation or requirement, such as respect of reporting obligations to regulatory governmental authorities on the subject of the safety of our products, or with regard to the sale or transfer of one of our ranges of products or divisions, including the services provided via the ITENA Clinical sites. In these situations, we will take measures to protect your personal data as far as possible. We likewise reserve the right to use our personal data to investigate and prosecute users who breach our regulations or who participate in illegal conduct or conduct that is dangerous to others or others’ property.
