I, Cátia Resende, want you to know how I collect, use, and disclose personal data (information that identifies you as an individual). I am committed to protecting the privacy of personal data it collects and processes, and I will act in compliance with applicable data protection legislation.
Registration Information: You must provide your email address when you sign up to receive the newsletter. Email Information: If you choose to correspond with me through email, I may retain the content of your email messages and your email address, and our responses.
The legal bases for my processing of Personal Information are primarily that the processing is necessary for providing the Website and that the processing is carried out in our legitimate interests, which are further explained in the “How Do I Use the Information That You Provide to Us” section. I may also process Personal Information upon your consent, asking for it as appropriate.
Like other websites, my Website utilizes Web server logs to collect information about how my Website is used. For example, data gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at my website, and the Websites visited just before and after my Website.
I take steps designed to ensure that only I have access to your Personal Information. If you have chosen to subscribe to the newsletter, you will receive the newsletter via email. You may choose to unsubscribe from this email at any stage should you no longer wish to receive this newsletter.
Suppose you change your mind and no longer wish to receive marketing-related e-mails from me on a going-forward basis. In that case, you may unsubscribe from receiving such marketing-related e-mails or from such sharing at any time by using the tool provided to you.
A cookie is a minimal text document, which often includes a unique anonymous identifier. When you visit a Website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Website can send its cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
Occasionally, I may also use the information I collect to notify you about significant changes to my Website, new services, and special offers I think you will find valuable. You will be given the opportunity to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any point should you not wish to receive this information.
I may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or if I believe that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the law or comply with the legal process served on me; (b) protect and defend our rights and property, my site, the users of my site; (c) act under the circumstances to protect the safety of users of my site or me.
I have implemented various physical, administrative, and technical safeguards designed to protect the confidentiality and security of Personal Information under my control. However, no security measures are absolute or wholly guaranteed.
I will maintain your Personal Information for as long as a business need exists or as required by applicable laws, regulations, or government orders.
On written request and subject to proof of identity, you may access the Personal Information that we hold and ask that any necessary corrections be made, where applicable, as authorized or required by law. However, to ensure that the Personal Information we maintain about you is accurate and up to date, please inform me immediately of any change in your Personal Information.
Under the GDPR, you may be entitled to additional rights, including: (i) the right to withdraw consent to processing where consent is the basis of processing; (ii) the right to access your Personal Information and certain other supplementary information, under certain conditions; (iii) the right to object to unlawful data processing, under certain conditions; (iv) the right to erasure of Personal Information about you, under certain conditions; (v) the right to demand that I restrict processing of your Personal Information, under certain conditions, if you believe I have exceeded the legitimate basis for processing, processing is no longer necessary, are processing, or believe your personal information is inaccurate; (vi) the right to data portability of Personal Information concerning you that you provided in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, under certain conditions; (vii) the right object to decisions being taken by automated means which produce legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affect you, under certain conditions; (viii) the right to lodge a complaint with data protection authorities.
