Privacy Policy

Last reviewed August 6, 2020.

Your privacy is important to us. It is SYDLE's policy to respect your privacy concerning any information about you that we may collect on the SYDLE website and other websites and services that we own and operate.

This Privacy Policy applies exclusively to the SYDLE's website, service portal, communications, and advertising – in the context of this Policy, all the SYDLE services, henceforth "Service", "Services" or "Site" –, with the exception of the services that claim to be offered in according to a different privacy policy.

As a visitor or user of our Site, the collection, use and sharing of your personal data will be subject to this Privacy Policy and its updates.

Consequently, the use of the Services available by SYDLE will be considered as acceptance of our practices regarding privacy and personal data, contained in this Privacy Policy.

You are free to refuse our request for personal data, understanding that we may not be able to provide some of the desired Services.

We request personal information only to the extent necessary to provide you with a Service, always in accordance with fair and legal means and with your knowledge and acceptance. When we store data, we protect it within commercially acceptable means to prevent leaks and incidents, including unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.

We do not share personally identifiable information publicly or with third parties, only in exceptional cases when required by law.

What information you provide us

By using the contact and registration forms available on our Site, you will provide data that may include your name, email address, telephone, CPF, address, and password. In some cases, a password will not be required if you choose to register in connection with your Facebook, LinkedIn, or Google account.

Our Services include public access services, including blogs and forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas can be read, collected, and used by other people who access it. Your posts can remain even after canceling your account. In some cases, we may make your personal information anonymous so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case it will no longer be personal data.

What information we collect automatically

When you access our Site, we also receive your IP address, in order to obtain information that helps us understand your browser, operating system and improve your user experience.

Additionally, when you use our Services, we may remotely access, collect, monitor, and/or store "location data," which may include GPS coordinates (e.g., latitude and/or longitude) or similar information about the location of your device. Location data can transmit information about how you navigate the Services. Location data does not collect or share any personally identifiable information about you. Location data can be used in conjunction with personally identifiable information. Some features of the Services, particularly location-based services, may not function properly if the use or availability of location data is affected or disabled.

We use cookies to remember user settings, as well as for authentication and analysis. These technologies can be used to analyze trends, track user movements on the Site, and collect general information about users of our Services. You can control the use of cookies at the individual level in your browser. However, if you choose to disable cookies, you can limit the use of certain features or functions on our Site or Services. For more information on cookies, see the section of this Policy titled “Cookie Use Policy”

How we use your data

The data you provide can be used for the following:

Service research and development: we use data, including public comment, to conduct research and develop our services in order to provide you and others with a better, more intuitive, and personalized experience and to further the growth of our services.

Communication: we may send you messages via email, cell phone, notices posted on our websites or applications to notify you of the availability of services, security, or other issues related to the Services

Marketing: in addition to advertising our services, we use user data and content in invitations and communications that promote membership and network growth.

Customer service: we use data (which may include your messages) to investigate, respond to, and resolve complaints and problems, as well as service-related problems (e.g., errors).

How long we keep your personal data

We retain your personal information only for as long as it is necessary to provide you with the Services and to fulfill the purposes contained in this Policy. This is also the case for any company that we share your personal information with and that provides services on our behalf. Retention periods may vary depending on the type of information and how it is used.

Our retention periods are based on criteria including guidelines or operational needs or retention periods required by law. When we no longer need to use your personal information and it is no longer necessary to keep it in compliance with our legal or regulatory obligations, we will delete that information from our databases or depersonalize it so that it cannot be related to you.

How we obtain your consent

When you use our Services or provide personal information, such as name, phone number, and address on forms and records on our Site, we understand that you agree to the data collection and this Policy and that you authorize us to collect the data provided here to be used by our company.

If after providing us with your data you change your mind and want to withdraw your consent for us to use your personal data, you can, at any time, request it by contacting us by the means indicated in this Policy.

Third-party services

The eventual services of external providers may be used by us to provide the Services, which will be limited to collecting, using, and disclosing your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services that they provide us, always in accordance with this Policy.

Security

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow legal requirements and market best practices to ensure that your personal data is secure and is not lost, stolen, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.
