What are personal data?
When referring to personal data, we mean any information of any nature and irrespective of the media used, including sound and image, that relates to an identified or identifiable individual.
An identifiable person is anyone that can be directly or indirectly identified, whether by reference to an identification number, or to one or more elements specific to their physical, physiological, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity.
Who is responsible for processing the data?
Fiel is responsible for collecting and processing your personal data. It is the company providing a service and which, therefore, decides, within the context, what data are to be collected, the manner in which the data are processed and for what purposes they are used.
The Data Protection Consultant
Should you have any queries regarding Data Protection and this Policy, please contact the appointed DPC (Data Protection Consultant) by sending an e-mail to: email@example.com (Write ‘Personal Data’ in the subject of the e-mail).
What kind of personal data do we collect?
In the course of its activity and once the natural person has given permission, Fiel collects the said person’s personal data, which will be processed for the following:
- a) Administration and management of the legal, recruitment, contractual and commercial relations established with Henrique Fiel Lourenço, Lda;
- b) Compliance with the legal obligations that Henrique Fiel Lourenço, Lda. is bound to under the Portuguese Law and/or under the Contract, including, but not limiting, the tax law;
- c) Corporative administration obligations for business improvement and continuity.
When and how do we collect your data?
Fiel may collect your data by phone, by e-mail, in person, or from our website once you have granted your permission. Personal data are generally collected online when the Client contacts us via de website contact form.
Certain personal data must be provided so that Fiel can supply the product or service requested. In this case, the Company will inform its Clients which data must be correctly and fully provided.
Personal data are collected and processed by a computer in strict compliance with the personal data protection legislation, and are stored in specific data bases created for this purpose. The collected data will, under no circumstance, be used for any other purposes than that for which the data subject has given their consent.
How long do we keep your personal data?
The time during which your data are stored varies according to the purpose for which the information is processed.
There are, in effect, legal requirements that make it compulsory for the data to be stored for a minimum period of time. Thus, and whenever there is no specific legal requirement, the data are stored and kept only for the minimum time needed to be used for the purpose for which they were collected, or later processed, or for the period of time authorised by the National Data Protection Authority, at the end of which they will be deleted.
How can you access, correct or oppose to your personal data being processed?
Under the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation, the data subject is entitled to access, update, amend, oppose to, or cancel the contact data when, among other legal grounds, these are incorrect or no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected in the first place. The data subject is also entitled to withdraw their consent at any time without compromising the lawfulness of any processing already carried out based on the consent previously given. The data subject may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (writing “Personal Data” in the e-mail subject) requesting for withdrawal of consent.
You can cancel your registration or use of the website at any time, and ask to stop receiving e-mail messages. You can also delete all your personal information from our database.
If you registered to access our websites, your data will be stored in a specific user database. The data subject may, however, request that their data be eliminated, at any time, by sending an e-mail to email@example.com (write “Personal Data” in the e-mail subject box).
How do we keep your data secure?
- Access to your personal data is restricted and based on the “need to know” criteria, and only allowed for the purposes indicated;
- Any data collected is only transferred when necessary and with the consent of the data subject;
- Storing of highly confidential data;
- A firewall that ensures the protection of IT systems and that will prevent unauthorised access to your personal data;
- Permanent supervision of any accesses to the IT systems with an aim to prevent, detect, and stop irregular use of your personal data.
How can you refuse being contacted for marketing purposes?
Fiel may promote new products or services to its Clients by telephone, e-mail, SMS, MMS or any other electronic communications service, unless the Client refused such contact when providing their data.
Should you not wish to receive these communications, you may, at any given time, request that your data not be used for marketing purposes, to receive newsletters, or be included in information lists or services.
How does Fiel ensure the security of your personal data?
Fiel is committed to ensuring that any personal data made available to us is secure, and for this reason has approved and implemented strict rules concerning this matter. All those who legally access such data must comply with such rules.
Considering the major concern and dedication that Fiel has shown with regard to privacy matters, it has adopted several technical and organisational safety measures to protect the personal data made available to us and guarantee that they are not disseminated, lost, misused, changed, processed or accessed without authorisation, including any other kind of illicit processing.
For this reason, the Browser uses encrypted session storage when you fill in personal data forms, and all personal data provided are safely stored in Fiel‘s systems.
Notwithstanding the safety measures that Fiel has adopted, it is our duty to inform all those browsing the Internet that they should take further safety measures. This includes ensuring that you are using a computer and Browser with updated and suitably set up security patches, an active firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware, and ensure that the websites visited on the Internet are authentic, avoiding any websites you feel are not reputable.
