The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European regulation, approved by the European Parliament and the European Council, which considers the PROTECTION of natural persons in relation to the processing of their personal data a fundamental right, irrespective of nationality or place of residence, thus contributing to the achievement of an area of freedom, security and justice and to an economic and social union of the citizens of the European area.

With its entry into force, it is necessary to adopt a set of internal procedures aimed at safeguarding the processing of personal data, as well as adapting the processing of personal data to the new rules established.

In turn, on August 8, 2019, Law 58/2019 was published in Portugal, assuring the implementation, in the national legal order, of the GDPR, and also imposing rules on the processing of personal data.

Cânhamor, Lda. considers it essential to PROTECT personal data relating to your employees, suppliers and customers, and all persons who contact you in any way, having established a set of standards and good practices aimed at implementing the obligations contained in the diplomas identified above and, as such, defending the rights of the holders of the personal data it processes.

Measures have also been established regarding the use of cookies on WEB pages that are also part of this PRIVACY AND DATA PROTECTION POLICY.

Also included were transitional rules that include the processing of personal data in an exceptional phase of the COVID 19 pandemic, and that will be in force as long as the respective need lasts.

This has led to the implementation of internal rules and procedures that have been established and approved in this PRIVACY AND DATA PROTECTION POLICY, which are in force as of this date.

Cânhamor Lda. will keep up to date the principles and good practices contained in this PRIVACY AND DATA PROTECTION POLICY, reserving the right to change it whenever necessary.
