EU Regulation 2016/679

Within the framework of the continuous updating of our procedures aimed at respecting the Privacy of our Customers/Users and the obligations imposed by the legislation on the protection of personal data, we have deemed it appropriate to summarise in this document all the elements concerning the processing of personal data already present in the documentation made available to users, supplemented with more specific indications with a view to conferring maximum transparency on our work.


> data provided by the User/Customer, or by a person/entity acting on his/her behalf (treating doctor, ASL/USL) including personal data (name and surname, residence/domicile, place and date of birth, nationality), tax code, identity document details, contact details (telephone/fax number, e-mail address);

> data, again provided by the data subject, contained in any reports/requests;

> data on payments made by the Customer.

The legislation establishes special protections for judicial data (relating to criminal convictions and offences) and for 'special categories of data' as defined in Article 9 of EU Reg. 2016/679: personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, as well as genetic data, biometric data intended to uniquely identify a natural person, data relating to a person's health or sex life or sexual orientation.

FOR ORDERS RELATING TO specific immunotherapy products for identified and identifiable patients  Siva Igiene Ambientale s.r.l. will inevitably process data relating to health, which may also appear in reports forwarded by users to the customer service, for which reason specific consents will be requested from the person concerned, should the characteristics or modalities of the processing require it.

With regard to this point, particular care has been taken to request only the data and to carry out only those processing operations that are necessary to fulfil the data subjects' requests.

The data may be processed in connection with the purposes set out below:

> in so far as they are necessary to fulfil obligations arising from a contract to which the data subject is party, and related legal obligations (in particular for the purpose referred to in point 3 a b c below)

> in so far as they are necessary for the pursuit of a legitimate interest of the data controller, consisting in the optimisation of the organisation of activities, security of systems, protection of credit (in particular for the purpose referred to in point 3 d e f h i below)

> as necessary to assert or defend a right in court or to assess whether there is a right to be protected usefully in court

> as originating from public registers accessible to anyone and/or made manifestly public by the person concerned;

> the data subject having given his or her consent, (in particular in relation to the processing of certain special categories of personal data communicated by the data subject and the use of contact details other than the e-mail address provided upon conclusion of the contract for commercial communications and advertising as referred to in point 3 letters f g h below)


Recording and updating of personal data may take place:

- through the person concerned or, if a minor, through the person exercising parental authority (parents or guardians);

- through intermediaries authorised by the person concerned (e.g. family members, GP, ASL/USL) ;

- from sources freely accessible to anyone.


The processing carried out has the following purposes:

a) to meet requests from organisations (hospitals, health authorities, etc.), which order specific immunotherapy products for identified and identifiable patients, or from private customers who order specific immunotherapy products for themselves or their family members by prescription; 

b) fulfilling obligations arising from laws, community rules and regulations, regional laws; fulfilling provisions issued by the Judicial Authority, or by other Authorities to which current legislation confers such power.

i) Feeding the system of systematic recording and analysis of service failures in order to correct them

Always guaranteeing absolute confidentiality, relevance and non-excessiveness with respect to the purposes described above, in terms of recording and data retention periods.

  • for user reports: in addition to the personnel assigned to receive user reports, the data may be processed, with the exclusion of the data subject's identification elements, by the corporate functions concerned with the subject of the report for the preparation/realisation of internal investigations and for the resolution of cases, always and only to the extent necessary to perform their functions.


Notwithstanding communications made in fulfilment of legal obligations, the personal data in question may be communicated or made available:

  • to persons who can access the data by virtue of a provision of law, regulation or EU legislation, within the limits provided for by these rules,

- the public or private body that placed the order for a specific immunotherapy product intended for the person concerned

6.1 transfer abroad

Personal data will only be transferred to entities located outside the European Union to the country in which the data subject resides or is located if the prerequisites of legitimacy set out in point 1 are met and in compliance with the legislation in force.




The communication and updating of one's own data is compulsory only insofar as it relates to the performance of contractual and fiscal obligations provided for by the laws in force and the performance of obligations arising from the contract (ref. Letters a-b-c of point 3). Failure on the part of the data subject to comply with this obligation would make it impossible for Siva Igiene Ambientale s.r.l. to fulfil your requests and process your order. Obviously, on a case-by-case basis, an indication is always given of the data whose disclosure is mandatory in relation to the aforementioned purposes depending on the medium used.

- are collected and held on the basis of obligations under EU laws, rules and regulations
