Such novel feature, named ‘Find a Physician’, aims to enable patients and/or other interested parties to retrieve contact information, by geographic area, of pediatric orthopedic surgeons or medical specialists who have received training on and are authorized to use one or more of the Orthofix Pediatric solutions listed in the “Pediatric Solutions” section of this Website (the “Physician Locator”).
If you wish to join the Physician Locator service, you must provide us with the following data: first and last name; medical specialty (e.g. Pediatrics, Congenital Deformities, Limb Lengthening with Internal Nail), business address, including city, ZIP code and country; name of the hospital you work for and department name (both if applicable); email address; telephone number (all together the “Personal Data”).
We will collect and process your Personal Data with the main purpose of including them in the Physician Locator service, so to allow patients and/or other interested parties to easily find your contact information on the Website. The legal basis to process your Personal Data for this purpose is your prior and specific consent (Art. 6.1(a) of the GDPR). The provision of such a consent is voluntary, but without it, we will not be able to include your Personal Data in the Physician Locator.
In addition, we may process your data to comply with applicable laws and regulations, pursuant to Art. 6.1,(c) of the GDPR, including in order to fulfil the competent authorities’ requests, and/or on the basis of our legitimate interest under Art. 6.1, (f) GDPR, for the purposes of defending our rights in courts or in the context of extraordinary corporate operations.
Your Personal Data may be disclosed to and accessed only by duly authorized personnel within Orthofix, and/or by third parties, including other companies belonging to the Orthofix Group, that provide services functional to the achievement of the purposes set out above.
These recipients will process your Personal Data acting as autonomous data controllers, data processors on behalf of Orthofix or authorized personnel, as the case may be.
Moreover, your Personal Data may be communicated to third parties, if required or permitted by the applicable laws, including pursuant to a Court order, to government authorities or to law enforcement agencies.
For the purposes described above, your Personal Data may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA“) that do not guarantee an adequate level of protection. In particular, your Personal Data may be transferred to other companies of the Orthofix Group, which are located outside the EEA (e.g. Orthofix Inc. in the United States). In such a case, Orthofix will take the necessary measures to protect your Personal Data, including the adoption of Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission, in accordance with the applicable law and in particular Art. 45 and 46 of the GDPR.
Your Personal Data will be kept in identifiable form for no longer than necessary to allow your enrollment in the Physician Locator service, and in any case within the time limits set forth by the legislation in force, e.g. to protect our rights, where necessary. When no longer needed in accordance with the above, the data will be cancelled.
At any time you can exercise your rights under the GDPR, in particular:
