Personal Data Processing Operations

Personal data is any information relative to an identified or identifiable natural person.

The holders of the personal data are the natural persons to whom the personal data refer, namely, clients, workers, service providers, collaborators, among others, by which CALHEIROS may collect and treat different categories of personal data such as identification and contact data, namely, name, address, tax identification number, payment data, e-mail, telephone contact, among others, collected at the moment of the rendering of the services, work contracts, among others.

Personal data is processed for different purposes:

The personal data collected from our clients, workers, collaborators, partners or any others, have the sole purpose of gathering the necessary information to provide our services to the data holders and the development of our activity, administrative, accounting and fiscal management, including invoicing and accounting; payments; compliance with legal obligations and response to requests from judicial authority or other public authorities, in the legal terms, fulfilling the legal and contractual obligations inherent to our activity.

CALHEIROS processes personal data exclusively for the above-mentioned purposes and only for the period that is necessary or obligatory for the fulfilment of those purposes, being the conservation periods determined for each purpose and appropriate to each processing in conformity with our legal obligations.

After the end of the conservation period, and if we are not obliged, by judicial or administrative legal imposition, to proceed to its conservation, we eliminate the personal data or proceed to its anonymization.


Secrecy and Confidentiality

All our collaborators have the duty of confidentiality and protection of information as prescribed in the General Regulation of Data Protection, being obliged to keep absolute secrecy on any information or knowledge of personal, technical, business, or other nature, acquired necessarily or involuntarily, during the labour relation or because of it, relative to CALHEIROS or any other natural or legal persons with whom it is related, namely other workers, clients, family members, partners and suppliers, unless previously requested. of CALHEIROS or any other persons, natural or legal, connected with it, namely other workers, clients, relatives, partners and suppliers, unless previously authorised in writing.

CALHEIROS does not transmit personal data to third parties, except in the cases in which it is necessary for the rendering of the services it has contracted, for the fulfilment of legal obligations or when it has given its consent to that effect.

With a view to the purposes indicated above, we may need to use subcontractors for the processing of personal data and communicate your personal data to subcontractors involved in the contract execution, namely, Tax Authority, Social Security, Accounting, Insurance Companies, and any other entities legally required to provide our services.

However, the transmission of data to third parties is carried out in accordance with the applicable legislation on data protection and within the limits of the purposes and legal grounds defined in this Privacy Policy.

Our concern with ensuring secrecy and confidentiality in the processing of personal data extends to our subcontractors or service providers, from whom we require guarantees of data processing in compliance and obedience to the processing rules arising from the GDPR.

We assure personal data subjects of confidence in the processing of their data, secrecy and confidentiality in accordance with all data processing rules and this Privacy Policy, as well as internal orders, instructions and procedures to respect the privacy of the data subject.

A) Personal data will be processed in obedience to the legal regime of data processing, to this Privacy Policy and with the guarantee of a legal, loyal and transparent processing;

B) The data collected is merely instrumental to our activity, being intended to pursue a specific and legitimate purpose, with no further processing incompatible with these purposes;

E) We assume the Principle of Concern for the conservation of your data in such a way that it is possible to identify you only for the period necessary for the purposes for which the data is processed;

F) We will treat your data in accordance with the Security Principle, protecting your data from possible illegal and unauthorised processing, preventing possible loss, destruction or unforeseen damage, adopting all appropriate technical and organisational measures for data processing which guarantee the security, integrity and confidentiality of the data.

      • You have withdrawn your consent, on which the legitimacy of the processing was based;
      • Personal data is being unlawfully processed, which requires justification by the data subject;

5) Right to Data Portability: This is the right to receive from a controller your personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and the right to transmit them to another controller, only if the processing in question is based on consent or on a contract and is carried out by automated means; the right to have your data transmitted directly between controllers, where technically feasible, but covers only the data provided by you.
