LACES does not have any responsibility derived from data processing activities and the content of third party sites, with which it may have links.

Data Retention

Personal data will be kept by LACES for the duration of the project. All data collected will be deleted from our servers when the holder so requests, through a free and facilitated procedure, except in the event of compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation.

User's Rights

The Brazilian General Data Protection Law provides for a series of rights for the user (in this case, the authors and other users), which can be claimed before the data controller (in this case, LACES) provided that the legal conditions are met. See below what these rights and conditions are.

  • Confirmation of the existence of treatment

The controller must inform, upon the express request of the user, whether or not it treats the applicant's personal data.

  • Access to processed personal data

The controller must inform, upon the express request of the user, which personal data belonging to the applicant are processed.

  • Integrity of personal data processed

When verifying the existence of incompleteness, inaccuracy, or outdated information on your personal data processed by the controller, the user may, upon express request, demand the correction of these data.

  • Opposition to the processing of unnecessary or excessive data

The controller should only process the data necessary to achieve the processing purposes declared to the user. Therefore, when verifying that the controller is performing the processing (including storage) of unnecessary or excessive data, the user may, upon express request, demand anonymization, blocking, or deletion of this data.

  • Portability of personal data

The user can request that his data processed by the controller be transferred to another controller.

  • Elimination of processed data

The user may demand, upon express request, the elimination of his / her personal data, unless these data have been regularly transferred to third parties or are being processed by the controller only anonymized.

  • Information on the sharing of personal data

The controller must inform, upon the express request of the data subject, with which partners it shares the applicant's personal data.

  • Information about the possibility of not providing consent

The user is not obliged to provide consent for the processing of his personal data. However, when making the decision not to consent, the user will be informed of the consequences of this decision.

  • Revocation of consent

The user may, at any time, upon express manifestation, through a free and facilitated procedure, revoke the consent provided for specific treatment of his personal data. In this case, the controller must interrupt the treatment object of the revocation, unless there is another legal basis for maintaining the procedure.

  • Opposition to irregular treatment

If the user suspects that the data protection legislation is not complied with, it may question the treatment performed by the controller, even though the legal basis for this treatment is not only consent. In this case, the controller is not obliged to immediately interrupt the questioned treatment but must clarify to the data subject about its lawfulness.

  • Petition to the supervisory authority

The data subject will have the right to petition in relation to his data against the controller before the National Data Authority - ANPD - when it is actually constituted - or before consumer protection agencies.
