When you facilitate us your personal data, you guarantee that you are enabled to facilitate this information and that the information is true, truthful, accurate and up-to-date, that it is not confidential, that it does not violate any third party contractual restrictions or rights and you commit yourself to not impersonate other users by using their registration data to the different services and/or contents of the website.
You have the responsibility of maintaining your data accurate and up-to-date, Addition Technology declining all responsibility in the event of failure to do so.
In the event that third parties facilitate us personal data, (doctors for performing the calculations of nomograms their patients, insurers who cover the expense of our products so that we may issue them an invoice, physicians or health centres who prescribe our health care products tailored to their patients …), the data categories we process are: Identifying data and even especially protected data relating to the individual’s health.

6.- What is the legitimation for the processing of your data?
The legal basis which legitimates us to process the data is on one hand, the contractual or commercial relationship between the parties either directly with the current or potential customer, or with the insurance company that covers the expense of the implant, the physician or the health care centre prescribing it in the event that it is these that convey the data of the individual concerned to us.
On the other hand, it may also be for the legitimate interest of said third parties for billing the implants or health care products manufactured by us that they may have prescribed, as well as compliance on our part with the regulatory framework on the manufacturing of customised health care products.
In the case of a user of our website, the legitimation for the processing of their data shall be their consent that they unequivocally give us on providing the on-line or off-line data, said provision being deemed to be a clear affirmative act that expresses said consent.

Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.1.- General information.
