Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable person, in particular by means of the name, VAT number, location data, electronic identifier or other information enabling the individual to be identified. The information collected when someone visits the TEICOCIL website is considered personal information and falls within the GDPR.

The user or subscriber, person, to whom the data relate and who has used the services or products of TEICOCIL. The User will be the person who uses or exploits TEICOCIL products and the Subscriber is the person who subscribes to TEICOCIL’s forms of dissemination, namely newsletters and e-books.

Regardless of this distinction, TEICOCIL informs that it also protects personal data and respects the rights of users and subscribers.

The person responsible for the collection and processing of your personal data will be TEICOCIL and in this scope decides what data collected, means of treatment and purposes for which the data are used.

Note: In the scope of its activity, TEICOCIL will be able to access personal data of clients (e.g. correction of a database), not having any intervention either in the control or in the processing of the same. In any case, there is a commitment to confidentiality in order to assure customers that they will not use the same data for any purpose.

  1. Consent

When we have your express consent – in writing, orally or through the validation of an option – and prior and if such consent is free, informed, specific and unambiguous. Examples are your consent to TEICOCIL to analyse the use of services and consumer profile and make recommendations or send marketing messages (email marketing, SMS marketing, among others).




  1. Contract execution and pre-contractual procedures

When the processing of personal data is necessary for the celebration, execution and management of the contract concluded with TEICOCIL, such as for the preparation of a service proposal, for the management of contacts, information and requests, for the management of invoicing, collection and payments;




  1. Legitimate interest

When the processing of personal data corresponds to a legitimate interest of TEICOCIL or of third parties. E.g.: to respond to a request for contact.

Your personal data are treated by TEICOCIL only for the period of time necessary to achieve the defined purpose or, depending on what is applicable, until you exercise your right of opposition, right to be forgotten or withdraw consent. After the respective storage period has elapsed, TEICOCIL will eliminate or anonymize the data when they are not to be stored for a different purpose that can be maintained.

TEICOCIL treats and preserves your personal data according to the purposes for which they are processed.
There are cases in which the law requires the processing and preservation of data for a minimum period of time, namely: for 10 years the data necessary to informe the Tax Authority for accounting or tax purposes.

But, where there is no specific legal obligation, then the data will be processed only for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes that led to their collection and preservation and always in accordance with the law, guidelines and decisions of the CNPD. Thus, TEICOCIL will treat and maintain your personal data for the period in which it has a contractual relationship with you.

TEICOCIL may keep other personal data for periods longer than the duration of the contractual relationship, either based on your consent, or to ensure rights or duties related to the contract, or because it has legitimate interests that justify it, but always for the period strictly necessary to the fulfilment of the respective purposes and in accordance with the guidelines and decisions of the CNPD, namely the contact for marketing and sales purposes

We collect personal data by your consent when you purchase TEICOCIL products or services or when you download or use our brand marketing and sales materials. The collection can be done orally, in writing or through the TEICOCIL website. But your personal information may also be collected from sources accessible to the public or other sources.
