The Website's Content and that of linked websites are for informational purposes only and do not no way replace the relationship of trust between patient and doctor. Fidia invites Users to discuss the Content and any type of health-related information with their doctor. Fidia reserves the right to amend the Website at any time without prior notice. Neither Fidia, nor any third party involved in the creation, production and publication of the Website, or any other site linked to the same, may be held liable in any way, neither for any direct, incidental, consequential or indirect damage resulting from access, use or non-use of the Website or any other website linked to the same, nor for any error or omission in the Content. Users acknowledge that access to and browsing of the Website, as well as use of the information constituting the Content, are under their sole responsibility. Notwithstanding Fidia's undertaking mentioned above, the Website's Content may contain technical or typographical errors. Fidia shall not accept any liability for any inaccuracies, incompleteness, inconsistencies, inadequacies or untimely updating of the Website's Content. Users acknowledge that the Website has been created by Fidia for informational purposes only. The Website Content consists of information about the Company, as well as information relating to the research and development activities conducted and the products and services offered. Fidia also expressly warns Users that none of such Content may in any way and under any circumstances be attributed the value and meaning of medical, diagnostic and/or therapeutic indications or prescriptions. The Website and the Contents may be browsed and consulted only by persons over 14 years of age. Under no circumstances will any requests from persons below this age be taken into account, nor will any response be provided. Information relating to medicinal products which require a prescription is displayed by Fidia exclusively in the Restricted Areas of the Website, which, in accordance with the provisions of Legislative Decree 219/2006, are restricted to healthcare professionals (doctors and pharmacists). The Public is therefore invited to contact their doctor for any doubt or issue concerning their state of health and, in particular, for any medical-scientific, clinical and therapeutic services and/or advice regarding the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of diseases, symptoms, side effects and adverse events. Fidia reserves the right to make changes at any time and without prior notice to its products and services and to suspend or withdraw them from the market of any country worldwide at any time. Finally, Fidia reserves the right to make changes, corrections and improvements to the data, information and programs published on the Website and in general to any and all elements of the Content at any time and without prior notice. Users are therefore responsible for periodically consulting the Website in order to be aware of any updates to the Content and in any case for consciously evaluating any element of such Content that Fidia has published on the Website.

Attribution of the Content to Fidia.


The information and declarations relating to Fidia that are published in the Content of the Website shall be expressly identified as such by appropriate declarations of liability, whenever these are meant by Fidia to be an expression of the company's position on any specific matter.

Users are therefore responsible for verifying the attributability of the Content to Fidia, in accordance with this Condition.

No liability may be attributed to Fidia for effects caused by viruses, spyware or other harmful programs that are not detected and deactivated by the security software of the Website or as a result of accessing or browsing the Website or downloading materials, data, text, images or video or audio content from the Website or using any part of the Website's Content. Fidia reserves the right to interrupt or suspend the operation of the Website at any time without incurring any liability on its part, whether the interruption or suspension is the result of actions or omissions of Fidia or of third parties.

Limitations to Fidia's liability for the Internal and External Links. Opt–in.


Fidia reserves the right to include links (hereinafter "Links") in the Website, in both the Public Area as well as the Restricted Areas, that redirect Users to other pages of the Website (hereinafter "Internal Links") or, possibly, to the websites of other Fidia Group Companies (also these links are considered, pursuant to and for the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, as Internal Links) or, finally, also to third party websites (hereinafter "External Links") whose content is considered by Fidia, at its sole discretion, to be of interest to Users.

Fidia expressly warns Users that, by activating External Links, they interrupt browsing of the Website by their own free choice and without any constraint. Insertion by Fidia of External Links in the Website shall not imply any approval of the content of third party websites to which such External Links redirect Users, nor any acceptance of liability on the part of Fidia for the truthfulness and/or adequacy of such content. The information contained in these websites may not comply with Italian law and, in particular, with Legislative Decree 219/2006 on the advertising of medicinal products for human use. Fidia warns Users that such information is managed by third parties independently and outside the control of Fidia. Consequently, Fidia expressly declines any liability in any way connected with the content published on such websites and with the cyber security of browsing such websites, which Users acknowledge to access voluntarily and under their sole responsibility.
