This POLICY is legally binding on EBEN in the exercise of its activity and it cuts across the relationships it maintains or intends to maintain with its employees, clients, users and partners, which can be changed at any time when it is necessary for it to be updated and corrected.  Any significant change will be communicated.

How we keep your personal data secure

We use a variety of security measures to maintain the security, integrity and availability of your personal data.

Although transmission of data through the internet or website cannot guarantee total security against intrusions, we and our service providers and commercial partners will make every effort to implement and maintain physical, electronic and procedural measures aimed at protecting your personal data, in compliance with the applicable requirements of data protection.

Among others, we will implement the following:

  • Restricted personal access to your personal data based on the criteria ‘need to know’ and only within the scope of the purposes that have been communicated

For the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, your personal data will be stored for the period legally required or up to a maximum period of 5 years from the date of receipt of your consent, or from the last contact (according to what happens in the last place) and if, within this period, you have not withdrawn your consent.


With whom we share your personal data and how we keep it secure

Your personal data will be treated by companies subcontracted by EBEN for the purposes of service provision and for legal, fiscal and regulatory authorities, in compliance with legal requirements.

Only the necessary personal data is supplied to subcontracted companies for the provision of the services in question.

Your personal data is stored in the protected servers of our suppliers/service providers, accessed and used exclusively under our policies and standards (or the policies and standards of our suppliers/service providers).  In compliance with the GDPR, EBEN has written contracts with all the subcontracted entities, including clauses which ensure their commitment to comply with the GDPR.


Your rights

You can request the following at any time:

  • Access to information we have about you

Your request will be treated with special care for us to guarantee the effectiveness of your rights. You can be asked for proof of identity to ensure that sharing personal data is only done with the owner of the data.

If you exercise any of these rights, we will proceed to conduct an analysis and will respond where possible within one (1) month. Please be aware that in certain cases (for example, owing to legal requirement), your request may not be satisfied immediately.

If you are not satisfied with our use of your personal data or with our response after the exercise of any of these rights, you have the right to lodge a complaint with our Head of Data Protection and/or the National Commission for Data Protection

The information and personal data on Curriculum Vitae or other similar document, sent in by a candidate applying for a job by mail or by other means, will be the object of treatment by automated means for the purpose of recruitment and selection of candidates.

By supplying the aforementioned information and personal data to the company, the candidate gives consent for his information and personal data to be treated by the company.

The supply of possible sensitive data will be treated for the purposes of recruitment and selection of candidates if they are deemed to be important and pertinent for these purposes, considering that this data has been supplied based on the consent of the owner of this data.

Candidates have the right at any time, in accordance with the current law, to access, correct, erase, limit or oppose the treatment of data corresponding to them; and if they intend to exercise these rights, use the space available for this purpose on the company’s website or  send an email to: geral@eben.pt.  Candidates also have the right to withdraw their consent at any time, within the terms of the Law, and to lodge a complaint to a supervisory authority.

The company will keep the personal data of candidates for the time necessary to carry out the purposes for which they have been collected. Data collected within the scope of this Privacy Policy does not constitute compliance to any legal or contractual obligation. However, if the candidate is selected, his personal data will be used to prepare the respective contract. Data received will not be the object of automated decisions. Data may be used for profiling for the sole purpose of determining the candidate to be selected, but the final decision for selection or not will not always be automatic and is subject to human intervention. If the candidate does not give permission to be subject to a decision based on a profile, he should declare it expressly or should not send his application. The company has implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures, with the aim of protecting personal data against destruction, accidental or illicit, alteration, unauthorised access and disclosure, and any other form of illegal treatment. Employees authorised to access personal data are legally bound to the duty of confidentiality.
