If you register for one of our events, some of your personal data may be shared with the event organisers and/or with other participants.

By providing us with your contacts, PLMJ may contact you for marketing purposes relating to its services, provided you have consented to the processing of your personal data for this purpose. If you consent, you will receive marketing communications from us by email. You can oppose this data processing at any time.

Your consent is essential for PLMJ to process your personal data for certain purposes. However, if you choose not to give your consent, visiting and using our website will not be affected.


How long do we keep your information?

Our policy is to keep your data only as long as necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected. However, in certain cases, we may keep your data for longer periods, particularly when the law requires this.


What are my rights?

At any time, you can:

1. Ask for access to the information that we hold about you

As the data subject, you have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not the data relating to you are being processed and, if this is the case, to access your personal data and the information provided for by law.

2. Ask for the correction of the information if it is inaccurate or incomplete

As the data subject, you have the right to require PLMJ to correct any inaccurate or incomplete data that concern you, without undue delay.

3. Ask for the erasure of your personal data

As the data subject, you have the right to ask PLMJ to erase your data, without undue delay, and PLMJ is obliged to erase your personal data, without undue delay, in particular, when one of the following reasons applies:

a) The personal data are no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected or processed;

b) You withdrew your consent to the processing of your personal data (in cases in which the processing is based on consent) and there are no other grounds for this processing;

C) You oppose the processing and there are no prevailing legitimate interests that justify the processing.

4. Ask for the limitation of the processing of your personal data

In cases where the data processing is carried out for the purpose of legitimate interests pursued by PLMJ; or 2) the data is processed for direct marketing purposes or 3)the data is processed to create profiles, you may also oppose the processing of your personal data at any time.

6. If the processing depends on your consent, you have the right to withdraw it.

If consent is legally required to process personal data, you, as the data subject, have the right to withdraw consent at any time. However, that right does not compromise the lawfulness of any processing carried out on the basis of consent previously given. Nor does it compromise the subsequent processing of the same data on another legal basis, as is the case of fulfilling any contract or legal obligation to which PLMJ is subject.

If you wish to exercise any of your rights, you should contact us, in writing, by email to dataofficer@plmj.pt or by letter, sent to the address, Av. Fontes Pereira de Melo, 43, Lisbon 1050-119.

Your requests will be handled with particular care so that we can ensure the effectiveness of your rights. You may be asked to provide proof of your identity to ensure personal data is only shared with its data subject.

You should be aware that, in certain cases (for example, due to legal requirements), it may not be possible to deal with your request immediately.

In any case, you will be informed of the measures taken in response to your request within one month of the date the request is made.

You also have the right to submit a complaint to the National Commission for Data Protection.
