mobile phone (referred to here as a “Device”) browser from a website’s computer. It’s stored on your Device’s
drive. Each website can send its own cookies to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but to

We take PII security very seriously and employ the following data security tools to protect your PII:
• HTTPS: a protocol for secure communication over a computer network which is widely used on the Internet. HTTPS
consists of communication over Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) within a connection encrypted by Transport
Security or its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer. HTTPS allows for the authentication of the visited website and
protection of the privacy and integrity of the exchanged data.
• Encryption of passwords
Unfortunately, even with these measures, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of PII, namely when faced with
sophisticated criminal attempts to access our servers. By using our Site, you acknowledge and agree that we make
such guarantee, and that you use our Site at your own risk.
We give or may give in the future certain independent contractors access to PII (“Data Processors”). No Data
Processor will be retained without first entering into contracts in which they agree to protect PII using
procedures reasonably similar to ours and will only process PII in accordance with our instructions.
We may also disclose PII to attorneys and investors bound to confidentiality restrictions and to law enforcement
authorities, courts and public regulators, whenever such is required by applicable legislation. Finally, we may
share PII in connection with a transaction of all or substantially all of our assets.
We are entitled to use and share anonymous statistical data regarding the usage of our Site to third parties for
any purpose we deem suitable.

You may also oppose, at any time and free of charge, the use of your PII for direct marketing or any other form
commercial use. Should you wish to do so after receiving an e-mail or SMS from us, we will provide you with a
simple option to opt-out or remove yourself from our marketing directory. You may also withdraw your consent to
processing of your PII whenever such processing is dependent on consent. This may be done simply by sending us an
email to email@example.com.
Furthermore, you may at any time request that we delete or limit the PII we hold related to you. You may also
request the portability of your PII in accordance and within the limits of applicable law. It is your right to
request that we notify third parties with whom we may have shared your PII and also request that they comply with
Should you wish, you may file a complaint with a privacy regulatory body. In Portugal, the entity responsible for
enforcing privacy law is the Comissão Nacional da Protecção de Dados.
