Whenever a User accesses this website, data on that activity are temporarily stored and processed in a log.

The tracking tool employed to analyze use of this website is configured to ensure that no personal data are gathered.

Users’ IP addresses are also anonymous, so that it is not possible to track the activity of natural persons.

Even so, if you do not wish your activity on the website to be recorded and analyzed, you can turn on the "Do not track" option on your browser. When you switch this option on, your browser sends a message to our website, informing that you do not want your activity to be tracked.

Information gathered by tracking tool:
Access request (filename), date and time of request;
Browser type and version;
Browser language;
Operating system of device used to access website;
Type, brand and model of device used;
Screen resolution used;
Plugins used (such as Flash, Java);
Original URL (previous page accessed by User);
IP address (anonymised);
Country and region from which website is accessed;
Number of forms sent.

When you access each page of this website, this generates the so-called temporary cookies, to facilitate browsing. These cookies do not contain personal data and are deleted at the end of each session (when the User leaves the page or closes the browser). This website does not use technology that permits monitoring of User access behavior.

What are cookies
Cookies (or “connection testimonials”) are small pieces of data that a website stores in the user’s browser and are sent to the website with each request. Cookies may be:

First-party cookies: stored by the website the user is visiting and sent only to this website.
Third-party cookies: Websites may use external services that may also instruct the browser to store its own cookies.
Depending on their durability, cookies might be:

Persistent cookies: they are stored on your device and are not automatically deleted when you close your browser, with a variable validity depending on the cookie.
Session cookies: they are deleted when you close your browser.
What are the other local storage mechanisms?
Long-term persistent local storage (local persistent to the browser) are mechanisms that allow the use of small servers in your browser for small server use without this data being automatically sent to the server on each request.

Why use cookies and other mechanisms?
The purpose is to allow the website to remember the user preferences (user session, language, etc.) over a period of time. This way, users don’t have to re-enter them while browsing the site during their visit.

They may also be used to collect statistical data about the user’s browsing experience on our website.

What types of cookies and other local storage mechanisms do we use?
This website mainly uses first-party cookies. However, for statistical purposes and for some embedded content (videos, maps, among others), it uses systems originating from external organizations that may store cookies and other local data storage mechanisms.

In order to manage your usage options, they are grouped into three categories:

Required: These are essential for the website to function. This category includes only what is necessary to ensure basic functionality and security features of the site.

Performance and analysis (statistical): they are limited to evaluating the way in which the user interacts with our website as an anonymous user (the data collected does not identify him). They are used to help us understand how we can improve the services we provide to those who visit us. However, you can refuse cookies and other local storage mechanisms of this category.

Third-party content: a small number of pages on the website may contain, embedded in the page, video playback systems, maps and others from third parties (YouTube videos, Vimeo videos, Google Maps maps, among others). As this content belongs to third parties, even if some of them do not place any cookies or other local storage mechanisms, as is the case with several of these systems, it is not possible to guarantee that this situation will not change in the future. You can therefore refuse cookies and other local storage mechanisms of this category.

How to manage your options for using these mechanisms?
When accessing this site for the first time, you are asked to indicate your preferences for the use of cookies and other local storage mechanisms. You can accept the three categories described or you can set your preferences in another way. In managing preferences, you are given more specific information about these mechanisms that can be stored in your browser. In the case of the “Performance and analysis (statistical)” and “Third-party content” categories, you will be asked for your express consent to their use. Your usage preferences will be valid for 180 days since your last visit, but you can change your consent at any time by accessing the Settings. If changes are made to this website that include the modification of the set of cookies and other local storage mechanisms used, you will be asked again to define your preferences for use.

When you contact us, your data and information you provide are processed in order to contact you and deal with your information request. These data will be processed and stored, in accordance with the GDPR, for the period of three years.

If your request does not lie within our area of competence and responsibility, it may be forwarded to the competent authorities without your prior consent, in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR, provided it is legitimate to presume that the forwarding of the matter safeguards your interest and that no sensitive personal data are involved (Article 6(1)(e) GDPR).

Right of access, Article 15;
Right to rectification, Article 16;
Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"), Article 17;
Right to restriction of processing, Article 18;
Right to data portability, Article 20;
Right to object, Article 21.
NB: The right relating to automated individual decision-making, including profiling (Article 22) has no practical application here.

If the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke that consent unconditionally at any time. Such withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of any use based on consent at a date prior to its withdrawal (Article 7(3) GDPR).

In order to exercise any of the rights mentioned above, you should submit a written request to the following contacts:


Margens e Meridianos, Lda.
