When we discuss personal data, we mean information of any nature and regardless of the media used, including sound and images, relating to a single, identified or identifiable person.

The organisation responsible for collecting and processing personal data is GRESCO, which provides the services and, in this context, decides which data is collected, how it is processed and the purposes for which it is used. If you have any questions regarding data protection or this Policy, you can contact GRESCO using this email address: Gresco@Gresco.pt.
GRESCO, as part of its activity, collects and processes the personal data necessary to provide services and/or supply products, processing data in that context such as your name, address, date of birth, gender, e-mail address, academic qualifications, tax identification number, etc. This information may be requested when users register or fill in contact forms on our websites, as workers, job applicants, trainees, trainers, suppliers, visitors, partners, etc., or when receiving or sending e-mail messages or for services that require registration or subscription. Any personal information regarding all the stakeholders mentioned and others that use GRESCO website shall be processed in accordance with the Law on Personal Data Protection (GDPR).
GRESCO collects your data by telephone, in writing and through its website, with your consent. As a rule, personal data is collected when users subscribe to one of our products or services.
Some personal data must be supplied and, if it is not, or if not enough data is given, GRESCO cannot supply the product or service in question and so the Company shall inform customers of the compulsory nature of supplying the data.
The personal data collected is processed by computer in strict compliance with the legislation on personal data protection, and is stored on specific databases set up for the purpose. Under no circumstances shall the data collected be used for any purpose other than that for which the data owner gave consent.
The period of time for which the data is stored and preserved varies according to the purpose for which the information is processed. In fact, there are legal requirements that make it compulsory to conserve data for a minimum period of time. Therefore, whenever there is no specific legal demand, data shall be stored and conserved only for the minimum period necessary for the purposes that led to it being collected or subsequently processed or for the period of time authorised by the National Data Protection Commission, after which the data shall be deleted.
Under the terms of the Law on Personal Data Protection, the data owner is guaranteed the right to access, update, amend or delete his or her personal data, and this can be performed via one of the contact methods provided by GRESCO.
If you wish, you may cancel your registration or use at any time and you may choose not to receive any e-mail messages. You may also choose to delete all your personal information on our database.
The data owner also has the right to receive a copy of the personal information in our possession. GRESCO reserves the right to charge a small fee for administration and computer costs for any request made. If you use the user registration process on our websites, your data shall be stored on a specific database for user supervision. However, the data owner may request for it to be deleted whenever he or she desires by sending a written request to the official address on our website.
GRESCO may advertise new products or services to its customers by telephone, e-mail, SMS, MMS or any other electronic communications service unless the customer has objected to this when his or her data was collected.
If you do not wish to receive these communications, you may object at any time to the use of your data for marketing purposes, to the sending of information communications or its inclusion on information lists or services.
GRESCO makes a commitment to protect the security of personal data that is supplied to us and has approved and implemented thorough rules on this subject. Complying with these rules is an inalienable obligation for all those who legally access it.
Bearing in mind GRESCO’s great concern with and commitment to defending privacy matters, several technical and organisational security measures have been adopted to protect the personal data that is supplied to us to stop it from being disseminated, lost, improperly used, amended, processed or accessed without authorisation, as well as protecting it from any other form of illicit processing. Therefore, the forms for collecting personal data require encrypted browser sessions and all the personal data you supply us is stored securely on GRESCO’s systems.
Despite the security measures adopted by GRESCO, we are obliged to warn everyone who browses the internet that they should take additional security precautions, specifically ensuring that they use a computer and browser that have up-to-date security patches and are properly configured, with an active firewall, antivirus and anti-spyware software, and check the authenticity of the websites they visit on the internet, and should avoid untrustworthy websites.
