Privacy Policy

Data privacy is of high importance for DSType and we want to be open and transparent with our processing of your personal data. 

We therefore have a policy setting out how your personal data will be processed and protected.

I. Who we are

DSType is the controller of the personal data you submit to us and responsible for your personal data under applicable data protection law. 

DSType Unipessoal Lda.

Largo da Fontinha 14
4000-241 Porto

II. Who has access to your information?

Under no circumstances will we sell or otherwise give away your information to third parties. We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

III. Third Party Service Providers working on our behalf

We may pass your information to our third party service providers, subcontractors and software developers for the sole purpose of completing tasks and providing services to you on our behalf (for example to send you mailings). However, when we use third party service providers, we disclose only the personal information that is necessary to deliver the service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it for their own direct marketing purposes. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond the necessary scope of our services, unless you have requested us to do so, or we are required to do so by law, for example, by a court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime.

IV. Data security

We will always take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, in particular where the processing involves the transmission of data over a network, and against all other unlawful forms of processing (including taking reasonable steps to ensure the reliability of employees who have access to personal information). We protect user information by employing secure servers, firewalls, SSL encryption (where appropriate) and other technology.

V. Data retention

The data that we collect from you is stored within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) but may also be transferred to and processed in a country outside of the EEA. Any such transfer of your personal data will be carried out in compliance with applicable laws.

For transfers outside the EEA, DSType will use Standard Contractual Clauses and Shields as safeguards for countries without adequacy decisions from the European Commission.

VI. Your rights

a. Right to access
You have the right to request information about the personal data we hold about you at any time. You can contact DSType and we will provide you with your personal data via e-mail.

b. Right to correction 
You have the right to request correction of your personal data if the information is incorrect, including the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

If you have an account you can edit your personal data under your account.

c. Right to transfer
Whenever DSType processes your personal data, by automated means based on your consent or based on an agreement, you have the right to get a copy of your data transferred to you or to another party. This only includes the personal data you have submitted to us.

d. Right to erasure
You have the right to erase your personal information at any time except for the following situations:

(c) if you are suspected or have misused our services within the last four years
(d) if you have made any purchase, we will keep your personal data in connection to your transaction for book-keeping purposes

e. Right to object to processing based on legitimate interest
You have the right to object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (of our own or of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms.

You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

f. Right to restriction
You have the right to request that DSType restricts the process of your personal data under the following scenarios:

(a) if you object to a processing based DSType ’s legitimate interest, DSType shall restrict all processing of such data pending the verification of the legitimate interest.
(b) if you have claim that your personal data is incorrect, DSType must restrict all processing of such data pending the verification of the accuracy of the personal data.
(c) if the processing is unlawful you can oppose the erasure of personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of your personal data
(d) if DSType no longer needs the personal data but it is required by you to defend legal claims.
