Your requests will be handled with special care so that we can ensure the effectiveness of your rights. You may be required to provide proof of your identity to ensure that the sharing of personal data is only with the respective holder. Please note that in certain cases (for example, due to legal requirements) your request may not be immediately fulfilled.

You also have the right to file a complaint with the Portuguese Data Protection Commission (CNPD).

Can you later revoke the consent given?

If consent is required for the processing of personal data, the data subject has the right to withdraw consent at any time, although this right does not compromise the lawfulness of the processing on the basis of prior consent or the further processing thereof provided which is based on another ground of processing provided for by law.
