Their use by the User is expressly prohibited, in any way and for any purpose, including, but not limited to, use, publication, copying, and reproduction even on other websites, without the prior written authorization of Chiesi.

The Site is intended for personal and non-commercial use of the User. All contents, such as but not limited to, information, software programs, audio files, text, graphics, icons, and images, contained within the Site are protected by copyright.

The failure of Chiesi to exercise any of its rights shall not constitute a waiver of its right to take action against Users for breach of their obligations.

  1. Applicable law and exclusive jurisdiction

These Terms shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Italy. Consumers residing in Italy shall be subject to the mandatory provisions of the Italian Consumer Code.

In particular, consumers shall always have the right to bring proceedings before the Court of their place of residence or domicile.

Chiesi may only take legal action against a consumer in the court of the consumer's place of residence or domicile. In the event of a dispute between the User and Chiesi, the User is encouraged to first contact Chiesi by e-mail to find an alternative solution to the dispute.

As an alternative to judicial dispute resolution, the consumer may submit his/her complaint to the Online Out-of-Court Dispute Resolution Platform (European ODR Platform) (Art. 14(1) of EU Regulation 524/2013). For more information about the European ODR Platform or to file a complaint and initiate alternative dispute resolution procedures relating to this contract, you can use the following link: http://ec.europa.eu/odr.
