In This Privacy Policy we’ve provided information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure.

As our company is based in Europe, we will collect, use and disclose personal data in accordance with the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”). In general, before we collect any personal data from you, we will notify you of the purposes for which your personal data may be collected, used and disclosed, as well as obtain consent for the intended purposes. However, the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (“LGPD”) may apply to those circumstances where Brazilian citizens are involved and the rights to them granted have been extended to all our users. The same applies to the processing that falls within the scope of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), whose effects are also extraterritorial. Other regulations may apply depending on your location.

We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your data. You can get in touch with our person responsible for Data Protection if you have any concerns or queries about how we process your data at [email protected]

We may share your personal information with trusted partners and suppliers only if they need such information to perform their specific obligations (e.g. to provide you with our service, to collect, store and process your personal information, to select and serve relevant adverts, and to improve and optimize our sites and applications), and we require them to do so based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy and Cookies Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures and applicable Regulations.

4. International transfers

We operate globally and may transfer your personal information to third parties in locations around the world for the purposes described in this privacy policy. Wherever your personal information is transferred, stored or processed by us, we will take reasonable steps to safeguard the privacy of your personal information.

To those whom the GDPR applies to, we inform you that some of the above mentioned providers are located in territories outside the European Economic Area that do not offer a level of data protection comparable to that of the European Union. In such cases, we transfer your data with adequate safeguards and always keep your data safe, using the most convenient international data transfer tools, for example the Standard Contractual Clauses and any relevant supplementary measures. You may consult the content of such Standard Contractual Clauses through the following link.

  • Ask that we delete personal information that we hold about you, or restrict the way in which we use such personal information.
  • Object to our processing of your personal information for reasons of our own legitimate interest, public interest, or profiling, unless we are able to proof that compelling, warranted reasons superseding your interests, rights and freedom exist, or that such processing is done for purpose of the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  • Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent.

To exercise any of these rights, you can get in touch with us or our data protection responsible using the details set out in Section 14.

You have also the right to launch a complaint with the competent authority should you be of the opinion that we have not complied with applicable privacy obligations.

6. How do we protect and secure your Personal Data?

Protecting the information that we receive about you is our priority. We take appropriate security measures to protect your information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. We have taken measures to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resiliency of systems and services that process personal information and will restore the availability and access to information in the event of a physical or technical incident in a timely manner.

GRUPO MCONTIGO has adopted the Data Protection security levels legally required and contained in Royal Decree 1720/2007 of the PDPL Directive. However, it provides other additional means, such as state-of-the art firewalls, apart from technical measures such as software for the encryption of confidential information and control of access to personal information, restricted users, security policies, users and passwords that expire as required by the LOPD, and other systems aimed to prevent misuse, alteration, unauthorized access and theft of personal data provided to GRUPO MCONTIGO.

GRUPO MCONTIGO uses the SSL/TLS protocol to establish secure connections between users and our servers over the internet, ensuring that the information relayed is encrypted and unable to be read by an external third party, making your transaction on our website much more secure.

Unfortunately, no organization can guarantee the absolute security of information, especially information transmitted over the internet. However, if you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if your personal information might have been compromised), please contact us immediately at [email protected].

7. How long do we store Personal Data?

We will retain your personal information for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained.  The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:  (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Service to you; (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; and (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to applicable statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).

For further information about our retention period you can contact us via [email protected]

If you would like to request the permanent deletion of your data, you can send an email to [email protected].

8. Responsibility for the accuracy and truthfulness of personal data

The user is solely responsible for the accuracy and correctness of the data provided through any of the forms on the web, exonerating GRUPO MCONTIGO from any responsibility in this regard. Users guarantee and respond, in any case, the accuracy, validity and authenticity of the personal data provided, and undertake to keep them updated. The user agrees to provide complete and correct information in the forms you fill out.

GRUPO MCONTIGO is not responsible for the veracity of the information that is not of its own elaboration and of which another source is indicated, so it does not assume any responsibility for hypothetical damages that may arise from the use of such information.

GRUPO MCONTIGO is exonerated from liability for any loss or damage that the user may suffer as a result of errors, defects or omissions in the information provided by GRUPO MCONTIGO provided that it comes from outside sources.

9. Data of minors

As a general rule, GRUPO MCONTIGO will not process data of minors for the realization of the treatment and services provided by GRUPO MCONTIGO. If a user provides data of children under 14 years (or under 16 for Californian Residents), the user guarantees the prior consent of their parents or guardians. If GRUPO MCONTIGO requires it, the user will have to prove having obtained such consent.

10. How do we use Cookies?

The information collected through cookies serves to facilitate the user’s navigation of the portal and to optimize the browsing experience.

We do not “sell” the personal information we collect or any personal information of known minors under 16 years of age. (and will not sell it in the future without providing a right to opt-out).

DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time. As there is not a legal standard on the matter, we inform you we do not recognize or respond to “DNT” signals.

California consumers may make a rights request by emailing us at [email protected]. We will verify your request by asking you to provide information that matches information we have on file about you. Users can also designate an authorized agent to exercise these rights on their behalf, but we will require proof that the person is authorized to act on your behalf and may also still ask you to verify your identity with us directly.
