To this end, this Privacy Policy has been prepared, with its underlying commitment to respecting data protection regulations and complying fully with the applicable legal requirements.  

  

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY?  

This Privacy Policy aims at informing users of the http://braver.pt website of the general rules applicable to the processing of personal data, which are collected and processed in strict compliance with the personal data protection legislation in force, particularly Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 27 April 2016 (“GDPR”).

“Personal data” means any information, of any nature and irrespective of their media, including sound and image, regarding an identifiable natural person. Therefore, the protection does not cover data referring to legal persons companies.

WHAT DOES PERSONAL DATA PROCESSING MEAN?

In any event, the use of this website, whether through the contact form or through submission of a CV, is equivalent to informed, express and unequivocal consent to this privacy policy.  

  

WHO ARE THE RECIPIENTS OF THE PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED?  

The BRAVER MEDIA GROUP is the main recipient of the personal data collected, without prejudice to other recipients indicated throughout this Privacy Policy.

HOW ARE THE PERSONAL DATA COLLECTED PROCESSED, AND STORED?  

The personal data collected may be processed by computer, through automated means or not, assuring strict compliance with the personal data protection regulations in all cases. They are stored on specific databases created for this purpose and under no circumstances shall the data collected be used for any purpose other than the one they were collected for or given consent for by the data subject.  

If users have given prior consent, they may withdraw it at any time. However, the lawfulness of any processing carried out based on the consent previously given shall not be affected by this.

The BRAVER MEDIA GROUP may also, provided this is allowed by law, use the personal data provided by the data subject for other purposes, particularly providing information on products, services, offers, promotions and events it believes may be of interest to the user, in accordance with his/her preferences, but only if the user has given express consent to the use of their personal data for this purpose. In this case, the user may withdraw consent for receiving these communications by sending an e-mail to…   

The BRAVER MEDIA GROUP shall not sell, lease, share or offer the personal data provided by its users, except under the terms of the personal data protection legislation applicable and in the cases provided for in this Privacy Policy, as well as for compliance with the regulations regarding the storage and transmission of data for the purposes of investigating, detecting and prosecuting serious crimes and other processing that is legally required.

The BRAVER MEDIA GROUP shall make every effort deemed appropriate under the terms of the applicable legislation in order to provide, correct or erase the personal data that are subject to processing. However, if the requests are clearly unfounded or excessive, particularly due to their repetitive nature, the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP may require that data subject to pay a fee, bearing in mind the administrative costs of providing the information or the communications, or for taking the steps requested or refusing to comply with the request.  

When the processing is based on consent, users have the right to withdraw such consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out by the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP on the personal data based on the consent previously given.  

  

WHO IS THE CONTROLLER?  

The controller is the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP.   

  

HOW CAN DATA SUBJECTS EXERCISE THEIR RIGHTS/COMPLAIN?

HOW LONG DO WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?  

The period for which personal data are stored and retained depends on the purpose for which the information is processed. Thus, the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP shall, in principle, keep the personal data as long as the data subject is actively using the website and, in general, for a period of two years since it was last used.

The BRAVER MEDIA GROUP takes all necessary and legally required precautions to ensure the protection of the information regarding its users that is collected through its website. To this end, strict rules have been implemented in this regard, bearing in mind the state of the art, costs of implementation and execution and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing, as well as the risks, of probability and varying severity, to their personal data.   

Therefore, the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP uses the technical and organisational measures required to ensure a level of security appropriate to the actual risk in question. These precautions seek to assure the online and offline security of this information.  

However, the users of the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP website have the exclusive responsibility to keep the devices used to access the website in secure conditions of use, following the security practices recommended by the manufacturers, particularly the installation and updating of the security applications required, including antivirus applications.  

  

  

UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES ARE DATA COMMUNICATED TO OTHER ENTITIES (THIRD PARTIES AND PROCESSORS)?  

Under the scope of its activities, the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP may use other companies in the company group it belongs to or third parties to provide certain services. Sometimes, the provision of these services involves access by these entities to the users’ personal data. If this is the case, the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP takes appropriate steps to ensure that the entities that have access to the data are renown and offer the highest guarantees at this level, which is duly established and safeguarded through a contract between the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP and the third party(ies).  

Thus, any entity subcontracted by the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP shall process the personal data of users in the name and on behalf of the BRAVER MEDIA GROUP, taking the technical and organisational measures required to protect the personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, alteration, diffusion or any unauthorised access and against any other form of unlawful processing.
