The Savior Artigos Têxteis, Lda. in the exercise of all its activity respects the privacy of its customers or potential customers and recognizes that they hold rights in relation to their personal data that is collected and that, as a company, has certain obligations with respect to such data.

The Savior Artigos Têxteis, Lda. supports the various national and international laws on privacy and implement procedures to meet the requirements of them.

This Privacy Policy therefore supports our privacy principles and informs the user about our practices of collecting, storing and using personal data of individuals who use our services, our service providers and suppliers.
We therefore encourage you to review this information so that you can understand how we collect, use and share your personal data.

Data that we collect

The Savior Artigos Têxteis, Lda. stores and uses personal data necessary to provide its services.

Most of this data is provided directly by the customer or potential customer when contacting us about our products and services, as well as by our suppliers and employees during the subcontracting or employment relationship with us.

When the user interacts with a web page or an application of Savior Artigos Têxteis, Lda, we collect data related to this interaction through, for example, the use of cookies placed on your device.

Why we use your data

We will use your personal data where:

  • you give us consent to the processing activity, taking into account the purposes about which we have made you aware. Where this is the case, you always have the right to withdraw your consent;
  • it is necessary for the performance and compliance with your service contract or other applicable contract with us or in order to take steps prior to entering into such a contract or other contract with you;
  • we need to process your data to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (for example, to comply with obligations under employment, tax, social security or social protection legislation);
  • exceptionally, it is necessary for vital interests relating to you or another person (for example, to prevent a serious risk of harm to you or others); or
  • exceptionally, it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party), provided that our legitimate interests are not outweighed by overriding interests or rights of yours which require protection of your data.

We will use special categories of personal data where you:

  • you provide us with your explicit consent. Where this is the case, you always have the right to withdraw your consent;
  • we need to do so in order to comply with our legal obligations (e.g. in the context of employment, social security and social protection legislation);
  • it is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of a right in legal proceedings;
  • it is necessary in the context of preventive or occupational medicine, for the assessment of your fitness for work, for medical diagnosis or for the provision of health care (e.g. in relation to referrals and reports concerning health at work);
  • it is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest, such as equal opportunity monitoring;
  • exceptionally, it is necessary because of vital interests relating to you or another person (for example, to avoid serious risk of harm to yourself or others) and you are not able to give consent; or
  • the relevant personal data has already been made public by you.

Legitimate Interests

In this context, we need to be a little more specific about the concept of “legitimate interests”.

As mentioned above, we may sometimes use your personal data if necessary for our (or a third party’s) legitimate interests. This includes, but is not limited to, cases where your personal data is necessary to:

  • ensure effective administration and management of your contract, benefits, business and business continuity;
  • ensure that our assets are protected, kept confidential, and not used for improper or illegitimate purposes;
  • prevent, detect or investigate unauthorized uses of our systems and ensure that we comply with the law and our policies;
  • ensure that we can contact you in the event of an emergency;
  • maintain product development and improvement, along with effective marketing through analysis and profiling for commercial information;
  • handle litigation and accidents and obtain professional legal or other advice;
  • comply with the laws and regulations of another country;
  • preventing fraud and financial crimes; and
  • ensure network and information security.

If you would like further information about how our legitimate interests apply to your personal data, please contact the Data Controller.

Failure to Provide Information When Required

Where we request information from you in order to provide our services and you do not provide the information that we have identified as necessary, we may not be able to assist you in requesting information from Savior Artigos Têxteis, Lda.

Retention of your data

We will retain your personal data for as long as necessary in connection with our contract with you, to provide you with the services you have requested, or for product sales, such as compliance with law, regulation or other legal authority.

Due to our various record retention obligations, retention periods may differ. For example, we will keep a copy of your contact details if you declare your opposition to receiving direct marketing communications from us. In this case, we will add your data to our suppression list to ensure that you do not receive future marketing communications from us. In addition, we will not delete personal data if it is relevant to an investigation or litigation. Such data will be stored until these matters are fully resolved.

That said, we will apply the following criteria to determine retention periods:

    • how long the data will be needed to provide our services and conduct our business;
    • whether there are contractual or legal obligations that oblige us to retain data for a certain period;
    • whether an individual has agreed to a longer retention period;
    • whether the data is considered sensitive, in which case a shorter retention period will generally apply; and
    • what the expectation of retention was at the time the data was provided to us.

In all cases, we will continue to protect your personal data in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Statement. We will also routinely update our information to ensure that it remains current.

Where your data can be shared

The Savior Artigos Têxteis, Lda. holds its employees, and suppliers responsible for maintaining the trust you place in us with your personal data.

In relation to individuals, Savior Artigos Têxteis, Lda. shares the data necessary to provide its services with other Company entities, suppliers or service providers that may be contracted for assistance in managing the processes necessary to provide such services.

Any involvement of a client, supplier or service provider will be governed by appropriate contractual requirements that prohibit the use of your data for any purposes other than those determined by the Company and that require the application of sufficient administrative and technical security mechanisms to prevent your data from being improperly used, disclosed or accessed.

In order to provide you with the services you request we share your personal data, in particular, with:

    • If we discuss the sale or transfer of part or all of our business, data may be transferred to potential purchasers on appropriate terms regarding confidentiality;
    • If we are reorganized or sold, data may be transferred to a buyer who can continue to provide services to you;
    • If we are required to do so by law or under any regulatory practice or code we observe, or if we are requested to do so by any public or regulatory authority, for example the police; or
    • If we are defending ourselves in a legal action, your data may be transferred as required in connection with such action.
