This privacy statement applies to all legal entities operating under the Deloitte brand in Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde and São Tomé and Príncipe, represented by Deloitte Central Services, S.A., based at Av.

None of these entities has any responsibility for the acts or omissions of the other entities.

We are committed to protecting your privacy and handling your information in an open and transparent manner.

This privacy statement identifies how we collect, handle, store and protect your personal data when:

Through this privacy statement we also inform you about when we share your personal data with other Deloitte Network member firms and other third parties (e.g. our suppliers).

Under this privacy statement, your information may be referred to as "personal information" or "personal data". We may sometimes refer to the handling, collection, protection and retention of your personal data as the "processing" of this personal information.

 

2. About other areas of deloitte.com

3. What data do we collect?

We may collect and obtain your personal data, in the course of our provision of services to you or our clients, for validation within the scope of our services (or discussion of possible services we may provide), as well as as as a user of this website.

We process your personal data because it is provided directly by you (e.g. on a form on our website) or by other people (e.g. your employer or consultant or suppliers) or because it is publicly available.

We may also process your personal data because we observe or infer it, through the way you interact with us or others. For example, to improve your experience when using this website and ensure its effective functioning, we (or our suppliers) may use cookies (small text files stored in a user's browser) and web beacons that may collect personal data.

The personal data we process may also include so-called "sensitive data" or "special data", such as details about: nutritional needs (e.g. when invited for lunch), health (e.g. so that we can provide appropriate means for your presence on our premises) and sexual orientation (e.g. if you send us data from your spouse or partner) and minors (e.g. if you provide us with your children's data).
The types of personal and/or special data we process may vary depending on the nature of the services we provide to you or our clients, your interaction with us or how you use our website. In some circumstances, we may also process other personal data because it is provided by you or because we are obliged to do so by law.

In cases where we receive personal data about you through a client of ours, we will be careful to include clauses in the contract with you to ensure that it complies with the relevant privacy laws and regulations; this may include, for example, that the client has obtained his consent to the processing under this privacy statement.

Such correspondence may be with you, with our clients, with other Deloitte Network member firms, with suppliers, with regulators or with competent authorities. We may also use your personal data to confirm, verify and evaluate our services.

As we do not control these other users we cannot guarantee that your contribution to these applications of any personal information will be treated in accordance with this privacy statement.

Some of the recipients of your personal data mentioned above may be located in third countries, whose laws may not offer the same level of data protection. In such cases, we will ensure that there are adequate safeguards to protect your personal data in accordance with our legal obligations.
