SPONTANEOUS REPORTING - INFORMATION NOTICE
In accordance with Articles 13 and 14 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”)

Pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 of the GDPR, Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A.

1) SOURCE OF PERSONAL DATA AND PURPOSES FOR THE PROCESSING

The personal data you have provided on an optional basis will be collected and processed exclusively to fulfill the legal obligations related to pharmacovigilance and, more specifically, for the purposes of the identification of any unknown adverse reactions, improvement and enhancement of the information on already known adverse reactions, assessment of the causal link between the administration of the medicine and the adverse reaction that was observed, as well as communication of the information to the competent authorities to ensure that the medicines used have a benefit/risk ratio that is beneficial to the population.

The data collected will involve:

a) as to the subject reporting the event: name, surname, contact details;

b) as to the subject to whom the report refers, at least one of the following categories of data: initials, age, gender. Special categories of data concerning health status may also be collected if part of the report.

The personal data you have provided or otherwise acquired by us within our activity may be processed in hardcopy, by automated or electronic means in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations, with procedures strictly related to the purposes set out above and may involve all the operations provided for in Article 4.2 of the GDPR, e.g. collection, storage, processing, cancellation, updating, etc..
