Terms of use of the site

Basic global privacy principles

Our privacy practices reflect the current principles and standards for processing personal data. These principles include notice of data use and choice of data use, data access, data integrity, security, transfer of personal data and enforcement.

This Data Protection Policy comes because we want to make our users aware of the general rules on privacy and the processing of their personal data, which we collect and process in strict compliance with the Personal Data Protection Act.

Glintt Global respects the best practices in the field of security and protection of personal data, and to this end has approved a demanding program, capable of safeguarding the protection of the data made available to us by all those who in any way relate to the Group’s Companies.

This Personal Data Protection Policy applies exclusively to the collection and processing of personal data by Glintt Global companies.

As a rule, Glintt Global does not link IP address numbers to any data that can identify a specific person, i.e. the user’s visit is recorded without Glintt Global having direct access to the user’s identity.

Automatic tools

In addition to the information provided by its users, Glintt Global may also collect information during your visit to a Glintt Global website through automatic tools that include web beacons, cookies, embedded web links and other commonly used information-gathering tools.
These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to the Glintt Global website, such as browser type and language, access times and the address of the website from which you arrived at a Glintt Global website. By using these tools, Glintt Global can also confirm the receipt of emails that the recipient has agreed to receive and can track other information, such as the pages visited on the site as well as other data not associated with a particular person.

Embedded web links

Glintt Global emails sometimes use links designed to take you to a relevant area of the web, after redirection through its servers. The redirection system allows Glintt Global to change the destination URL of these links if it deems it necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives.
In emails, these links may also allow Glintt Global to determine whether you have clicked on a link in the email, and information about this interaction may be associated with your personal identity. If you do not want us to collect information about the links you have clicked on, you can always choose not to click on the links sent by email by Glintt Global.

Cookie policy

Glintt Global uses, with the user’s prior consent, cookies to provide personalized content, thus preventing users from having to repeatedly re-enter their password and in order to adapt our information offer to the way users use the site.

Email addresses

If users choose to provide us with their e-mail address, we will communicate with them via e-mail.
Glintt Global does not share its users’ email addresses with companies that are not part of Glintt Global.
Users can opt out of receiving emails at any time.

Purchasing or registering for events

The Glintt Global website includes order forms that you fill in to request information, products and services. These forms may collect financial information, such as your bank account details or credit card numbers.
Glintt Global undertakes to use the financial information you provide only for billing and payment purposes for that particular transaction. This may include the transmission of your data to third parties involved in the execution of the transaction, namely banks, credit institutions and other financial institutions.

Sharing personal data

Glintt Global companies may share information with duly authorized external business partners, service providers, agents, or resellers so that they can provide a particular service or operation, including processing orders, credit card transactions, hosting websites, receiving registrations for events and seminars and providing customer support, or providing information about products and services that may be of interest to their users.
Although, in general, users’ personal data is not shared with third parties outside Glintt Global companies, in cases where such communication may occur, namely by legal provision, the user will be duly informed, and the identity of the recipients and the purpose of the processing of the data transferred will be transmitted.
Glintt Global will only make available to these external companies the minimum amount of personal data necessary for the provision of services on behalf of Glintt Global, and they are not authorized to use this personal data for purposes other than the provision of the service or the execution of the requested operation.
Glintt Global does not transfer its users’ personal data to third parties for marketing purposes unless they have authorized us to do so.
Situations may arise in which, for strategic or commercial reasons, Glintt Global decides to sell, buy, merge, or reorganize its companies. Such transactions may involve, in accordance with applicable law, the disclosure of personal information to potential or actual buyers, or the receipt of such information from sellers. It is Glintt Global’s policy to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
Glintt Global may collect and share personal data, as well as any additional information provided to it, to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal practices, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical integrity of any person, violation of Glintt Global’s terms of use or in any other situation provided for by law.

Security of your personal data

Glintt Global is committed to guaranteeing the protection of the security of the personal data made available to us and has approved and implemented strict rules in this regard. Compliance with these rules is an obligation of all those who legally access them.
Bearing in mind the great concern and commitment that Glintt Global shows in defending privacy issues, various technical and organizational security measures have been adopted in order to protect the personal data made available to us against its dissemination, loss, misuse, alteration, unauthorized processing or access, as well as against any form of illicit processing.
In this sense, on our website, the personal data collection forms require encrypted browser sessions and all the personal data that users give us is stored securely in Glintt Global’s systems which, in turn, are in a Glintt Global Data Center covered by all the physical and logical security measures that we believe are essential for the protection of your personal data.
Notwithstanding the security measures adopted by Glintt Global, we would like to warn everyone who browses the Internet that they should adopt additional security measures, namely ensuring that they use a PC and browser that are up-to-date in terms of properly configured security patches, with an active firewall, antivirus and anti-spyware, and making sure that the sites they visit on the Internet are authentic, and avoiding web sites whose reputation they do not trust.

Links to other sites

This site may contain links to other sites outside Glintt Global.
The provision of such links is made in good faith, and Glintt Global companies cannot be held responsible for the collection and processing of personal data carried out on these third-party websites.
Therefore, the provision of links to other websites outside the Glintt Global companies does not imply any assumption of responsibility in relation to those websites, and this Personal Data Protection Policy is not applicable in such cases.
We therefore advise you to read the Personal Data Protection Policies of the websites you visit.

Option/cancellation

Glintt Global communicates regularly with users who subscribe to our services via e-mail, and may also communicate by telephone. Glintt Global may use your e-mail address to confirm the opening of an account, to send you payment notices, information about changes to our products and services, as well as notifications and other publications provided by law. As a rule, users cannot unsubscribe from these communications, but they will essentially be informational and non-promotional in nature.
Glintt Global offers the possibility of exercising the opt-out option if users do not wish to receive other types of communication from us, such as emails or updates on new services and products offered on this website, or if they do not wish us to share their personal information with third parties. The unsubscribe option can be exercised by unsubscribing by emailing marketing@glinttglobal.com.

Data retention

Glintt Global will not retain the personal data of its users beyond the time necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected or beyond the time required by law or applicable regulations.

Under the terms of the Personal Data Protection Act, the data subject is guaranteed the right to access, update, rectify or delete their personal data at any time, as well as the right to object to the use of the data provided for marketing purposes, to send informative communications or to be included in lists or information services, and to do so, if they have not done so at the time of collection, they must send a written request addressed to the Marketing department of Glintt Global, Beloura Office Park, Edifício 10, Quinta da Beloura, 2710-693 Sintra, or send the request via email to marketing@glinttglobal.com.
