We respect it and are committed to protecting it. Below, we explain our privacy practices and how your information is collected and used to optimize your experience on this website.


1 - What is personal data?

Personal data is all information of any nature, collected on any type of support, relating to a natural, identified or identifiable person. The set of information that can lead to the identification of a particular person is considered identifiable, namely by reference to an identifier (such as an identification number or location data).

Our company only collects data that proves to be adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed.

2 - What kind of personal information do we collect?

We sometimes ask for personally identifiable information when you request a service, respond to a survey, participate in a contest, exchange correspondence with us or take other actions.

You can always decide whether to proceed with any action that requests personal information.

However, if you do not want to provide the requested data, you may not be able to complete the desired action. Likewise, when you visit our website, we will collect information known as “clickstreams” (IP address, domain name, etc). This information, combined with the data you provide us, allows us to personalize your visits.


3 - What personal data do we process and how do we collect it?

For the execution of the different purposes, we may collect the following data:

identification data;
contact details (such as mobile phone, address or e-mail);
banking, financial and transaction details (such as IBAN or tax identification number);
location data (such as IP address);
As a rule, our company does not collect special data, such as health data or data relating to administrative offenses or criminal offenses.


4 – Why do we use personal data?

All data collected and processed by our company are based on one of the following conditions of legitimacy:

Consent: when the collection is preceded by your express, specific and informed consent, through written support or via the web. We collect your consent, for example, for purposes related to subscribing to newsletters, providing a service, etc.
Execution of contract or pre-contractual steps: This condition will be fulfilled when we process your data for the purposes of managing programs and financing and cooperation protocols or contracts for the supply and provision of services.
Compliance with legal obligations: when the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation. This includes, for example, the communication of data with other public (national and community), fiscal or judicial bodies.

5 - What is the data retention period?

Our company processes and keeps your data only for the period that is necessary for the pursuit or completion of the purposes of the treatment for which they are intended, respecting the maximum periods necessary to comply with contractual, legal or regulatory obligations.

As a general rule, and when there is a contract that legitimizes the processing of your data, our company will keep such data as long as such contractual relationship is maintained. Other circumstances exist, such as compliance with legal or regulatory obligations (for example, for the purpose of complying with tax obligations, personal data relating to invoicing must be kept for a maximum period of ten years from the date of the act), as well as the pending legal proceedings, which may legitimize your data to be kept for a longer period of time.


6 - What are your rights?

Right of access: right that allows you to obtain information regarding the processing of your data and its characteristics (namely the type of data, the purpose of the treatment, to whom your data can be communicated, retention periods and which data you have to provide mandatory or optional).

Right of rectification: you can request the rectification of your data, demanding that they are accurate and current.

Right to data erasure or "Right to be forgotten": you can request the erasure of your data, when you consider that there are no valid grounds for its conservation and provided that there is no other valid basis that legitimizes such treatment (such as the execution of a contract or the fulfillment of a legal or regulatory obligation).

Right to Limitation: you can request the suspension of the treatment or the limitation of the treatment to certain categories of data or purposes.
Right to Portability: you can request the sending of your data, in digital format and in common use, which allows the reuse of your information. Alternatively, you can request the transmission of data to another entity that becomes responsible for processing your information.

Right of Opposition: you can oppose certain purposes as long as there are no legitimate interests that prevail over your interests. One of the examples of this right concerns opposition to direct marketing purposes.

How can you exercise your rights?

All the rights described above may be exercised, subject to the limitations provided for in applicable law, upon written request through our website, in the contact section, or via an email message to info@cvrdao.pt

7 - How do we protect your personal information?

To ensure the security of your information, we have established a series of security measures. Your data is stored on secure networks, which can only be accessed by a limited number of people who have special access rights and are committed to respecting and maintaining the confidential nature of such information.

Notwithstanding these measures, when you provide personal information on the Internet there is a risk that it may be intercepted and used by third parties beyond our control. While we make every effort to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of the data you make available over the Internet.


8 - Who has access to your personal information and to what extent?

In addition to our company and for the purposes described above, we do not sell, exchange or transfer your personal data to third parties in any way. Your personal information may be transferred to third-party providers subcontracted to provide certain services to us and may be used for better technical assistance. We require such subcontractors to keep personal information secure and confidential.
