Privacy policy

The BCSD Portugal – Business Council for Sustainable Development (“BCSD Portugal”) guarantees visitors to this website (“user” or “users”) respect for their privacy. The visit to this website by itself does not imply the automatic registration of any personal data identifying the user. However, the use of certain content or services, as well as the registration may imply the availability by users of personal data, namely the name, company and email.

This privacy policy regulates the collection and treatment of personal data provided by users, as well as the exercise of their rights in relation to these data, in accordance with the RGPD and the law.

Data collection and processing

The BCSD Portugal is the entity responsible for the collection and treatment of the personal data of the users.

The collected personal data will be processed and stored electronically by BCSD Portugal and are intended to respond to requests for contact, clarification and information, as well as comments or suggestions submitted by users. They can also be used for the dissemination and information of the activities of BCSD Portugal developed in the context of the pursuit of its public interest mission, namely information, events and training actions relating to the sustainable development topics in general and issues such as decarbonization, energy transition, energy efficiency and exergia.

The BCSD does not transmit its personal data to third parties, nor for purposes other than those indicated here.

BCSD Portugal can also address the information made available, anonymously, for statistical purposes and to improve the navigability conditions of the website.

The collected personal data shall be kept in such a way as to permit identification only for the period necessary for the continuation of the collection or subsequent treatment purposes, after which they shall be definitively eliminated.

Right of access, rectification and deletion

Under the terms of the law, the user is guaranteed the right of access, updating and rectification of his personal data, as well as the right of opposition to their treatment and deletion, upon written request.

Security measures

BCSD Portugal develops its best efforts to protect users’ personal data from unauthorized access through the Internet. For this purpose, it uses security systems, rules and other procedures, in order to ensure the protection of personal data of users, as well as to prevent unauthorized access to data, its improper use, its disclosure, loss or destruction.

It is, however, the responsibility of the user to ensure that the computer you are using is adequately protected against harmful software, computer viruses and worms.

However, it should be noted that whenever data collection is carried out on open networks such as the Internet, its data may circulate without security conditions, and there is a risk of being viewed and used by unauthorized third parties.

Search engine and third-party sites

When you use the search engine or links on the Meet 2030 website and access other websites, your personal data may be collected and processed by such websites. The BCSD has no control over any of these websites, not applying this privacy policy in these cases.
