Embedded scripts are programming code of some of our web pages that measure how you use them, for example, the links you select. This information is used to improve Chiesi-owned websites and online services, to tailor them to your likely interests, and to conduct market research. Users can disable scripting features, such as JavaScript, within the browser settings (see the help feature of your browser). Please note that if you disable scripting functionality, some Chiesi websites and applications may not function properly.
