Hale is an initiative that was created with the aim of centralizing information about pelvic floor dysfunction and chronic pelvic pain, dispelling taboos about it, and raising awareness about it at the health and social levels. Hale aims to offer personalized pathways of psychological support intended for women of age with pelvic floor dysfunction through the completion of two questionnaires (eligibility and needs customization) prodromal to the delivery of video, audio, and textual content ("Services" or "Products") and compilable through the Typeform platform. Hale content provided to the User is intended solely to improve the User's condition by providing psychological support in the management of pain caused by pelvic floor dysfunction. The User is, therefore, aware that the use of Hale's Services and Products - although they are prepared on the basis of scientific evidence and the support of Health Professionals - cannot be considered in any way a substitute for a medical examination, which, scientifically, represents the only diagnostic and therapeutic tool. All individuals over the age of 18 are eligible for Hale's Services and Products. For minors, it is currently not possible to join the service.
The User agrees to use the Services with diligence, in compliance with the provisions of these Terms and Conditions, including its subsequent amendments and additions, as well as in full compliance with the provisions of applicable laws and regulations.
The User acknowledges that Hale may not be held liable in any way for criminal, civil and administrative torts committed by the User by means of the Services, including to the detriment of third parties, and agrees to indemnify and otherwise hold Hale harmless from any action, claim, demand, cost or expense, including reasonable legal fees, that may be brought by third parties due to the User's failure to comply with the obligations assumed and the guarantees given by acceptance of these Terms and Conditions.
Pursuant to and for the purposes of Article 1456 of the Italian Civil Code, Hale reserves the right to terminate this contract for non-performance in the event of a breach by the User of the provisions set out therein, without prejudice to the rights of the same to compensation for any damages suffered.
Hale reserves the right, in cases of particular seriousness and urgency, to suspend or interrupt the provision of the Services even without prior notice to the User in cases where it detects elements from which it appears that the manner of use of the Services by the User may, directly or indirectly, cause damage to Hale or third parties as well as compromise the stability, security and quality of the Services offered, without prejudice to Hale's right to compensation for damages.
Hale is in no way responsible for information, including Personal Data and Special Data, communications and content transmitted directly by the User to third parties.
The Services and Products and related material are the property of Hale, unless otherwise indicated; Italian, German and European copyright laws apply to it. Reproduction, even in part, of the Services and Products, without the prior permission of Hale, is prohibited.
For the purpose of providing the Services, Hale, in compliance with the Personal Data Protection Legislation, processes as Data Controller the User's Personal Data, including Common Data and Special Data. Special Data and, specifically, Health Data will be processed by the Data Controller after obtaining the consent, freely expressed, from the User, for the purposes and according to the modalities described by Hale within the information on the processing of personal data provided pursuant to Article 13 of the GDPR.
The Personal Data communicated by the User, when filling in questionnaires and delivering personalized content, will not be transferred in any way to third parties, except to Hale's suppliers duly appointed as Data Processors pursuant to Article 28 of the GDPR.
Hale reserves the right to make changes to both the Services and Products and these Terms and Conditions at any time by bringing them to your attention via the email address shared when completing the eligibility questionnaire.
