Privacy and Data Protection Policy

The Pestana Method guarantees and safeguards the protection of the personal data of the users of its website. In the processing of personal data collected during your visit, the rules defined in current Community and national legislation are fully complied with. The data collected is intended only for the internal treatment of information and aims at providing the services announced and the continuous evolution of quality and excellence in this service. In no case will the data provided by you be publicly disclosed and will only be provided to third parties with your prior and express consent.


Visiting our website does not, in itself, involve the collection of personal data. However, there is a set of computer data that is automatically collected at each access, as best described in this text. There are, however, several areas of the site that require personal information from the user in order to be accessed, as well as some services that lack this information in order to be provided. The request to collect this data is always made in a clear and unambiguous way.

We present below the description of the type of data we collect, the treatment to which they are subject and also the utility they represent for the services we provide. At the end of the text, you can also consult your rights regarding information, correction and deletion of data.

1. Internet access data

With access to our website, a set of computer data is automatically collected, which is temporarily recorded in own files, and is also automatically deleted after a certain period. The collection of this data has purely technical objectives, such as the configuration of the connection, the security of the system, the technical administration of the network and the optimization of our website.

The data to which we refer are the following:

a) IP address of the requesting processor;
b) Access date and time;
c) Name and URL of the downloaded file;
d) Volume of data transmitted;
e) Indication of whether the transfer was successful;
f) Data identifying the browser software and the operating system;
g) Website from which you accessed our website;
h) Name of the Internet service provider.

2. Consent to use personal data

The use of some of the services on our site requires the provision of personal data and a more substantial treatment of them. The Pestana Method will only use these data when they are provided by their holders, only for the purposes that were provided and always with the consent of their holders, which is given with the act of supplying them. We then provide the services mentioned and the type of data processing performed.

2.1. Contact form
If you want to contact the Pestana Method directly through the website, you must complete the form provided for that purpose. You will be asked for some personal data (name and e-mail address). The collection of this data only aims to make it possible to respond to your contact with a minimum of personalization, not being used for any other purpose. It is also possible to contact the Pestana Method directly for the data indicated in the link “ Contacts ”.

2.2. Newsletters
The Pestana Method offers the possibility of subscribing to a free newsletters (in Portuguese) service for visitors to its website. This service aims to bring relevant information to its subscribers within the areas of interest covered by the services provided by the Pestana Method. To take advantage of this service, you will necessarily have to provide your name and e-mail address in the existing field for this purpose. You can cancel the subscription to the newsletters service at any time, simply by sending an email with this request or following the instructions to that effect present at the end of each newsletter.

2.3. Online registration
This site also allows you to register online for some of the Pestana Method courses. For this purpose, personal data related to civil identification, address and contacts are requested. Please note that online registration is one of two ways to register for training offers. Although online registration is the form of registration that we advise, as it is faster and more convenient, you can choose the registration method by traditional mail if you do not wish to provide the personal data referred to electronically.

3. Security

The Pestana Method has invested in technical and organizational security measures to protect the personal data collected against inadvertent or intentional manipulation, loss or destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are constantly being improved, following technological progress. However, we will decline any liability when these acts result from criminal or unlawful conduct, in which case the responsibility must be held by the respective agents.

4. Cookies

Our website may use cookies to control the session in your browser's memory. These data do not contain personal references and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Please note that most internet browsers are pre-programmed to accept cookies. If you want to consult our site without using cookies, you must change the appropriate setting in your browser options. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may limit the use of some features of our website.

5. Links to external sites

Our Privacy and Personal Data Protection Policy applies exclusively to our website. However, this website contains links to partner and supplier sites. The connection to these sites always requires a user click on the respective link, never being an automatic link. It is absolutely impossible for the Pestana Method to guarantee that the practices of these entities regarding data protection are in accordance with the law and our ethical requirements. Thus, the Pestana Method cannot be held responsible for the content or privacy policy of the external sites, being exclusively the responsibility of its owners any damage or illicit that the consultation of these sites may cause.

6. Right to verify, correct and delete data

Under the law, we fully recognize your right to verify any data relating to yourself, as well as the right to require its correction or deletion and the right to void your consent for future use. To obtain information about your personal data, to correct or delete data or to clarify any other question regarding the use of personal data in our possession, contact:
