Privacy Policy

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, establishes the rules on the protection of personal data of natural persons, being directly applicable in the legal order of all Member States, and imposing a series of duties that are aimed, in particular, at public legal persons. In Portugal, Law 58/2019 of 8 August is still in force, which ensures the implementation of the GDPR.

As such, GRUPO TAGAR is committed to enforce compliance with the rules implemented and has, therefore, defined this Privacy and Data Processing Policy. 

This Policy is applicable for the data collected and processed by the group and that was made available by the interested parties.

“Personal Data” means any information relating to a person, company, or organisation, regardless of its legal nature, which can be identified, directly or indirectly. The categories required for identification by GRUPO TAGAR are duly referenced, namely Name, Tax Identification Number, E-mail, and Phone Contact.

In addition, other concepts are related to this Policy and should be defined:

  • a) Processing – Corresponds to an operation or set of operations carried out on collections of personal data, by automated or non-automated means, such as gathering, recording, organisation, erasure or alteration;
  • b) Controller – means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with other, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data;
  • c) Consent – corresponds to a free, specific, informed and explicit expression of will by which the data subject accepts, by means of a declaration or an unequivocal positive act, that personal data concerning him or her will be processed.

Basis and Purpose of Personal Data Processing

GRUPO TAGAR collects and processes personal data for the pursuit of its duties, for the purposes of:

  • Fulfilling legal obligations;
  • Responding to contacts;
  • Instruction of application or recruitment processes;
  • Collecting activity indicators and information.

On the other hand, processing will only take place to the extent that it can be based on one of the lawful grounds based on the Law and the GDPR, namely the fulfilment of a legal or contractual obligation or the consent of the data subject, who is necessarily free, specific, informed and unequivocal to collect and process this data for the specific purpose for which it is intended.

Sharing and disclosure of data

GRUPO TAGAR only shares personal data with third parties if it has legal grounds to do so, such as the consent of the data subject, the fulfilment of legal obligations or the exercise of functions of public interest.

Outside of these situations, we do not transmit, sell or exchange your personal data with third parties, and it will only be stored and processed within the framework and possible provision of GRUPO TAGAR.

Data preservation

GRUPO TAGAR only keeps the personal data collected and processed for the legal period stipulated in the legislation, if there is no legal provision, for the period of time strictly necessary for their observance and relevance.

Security of personal data

GRUPO TAGAR is committed to guaranteeing the security and protection of the personal data it collects and has adopted a series of technical and organisational measures to this end.
