YOUR VIP PARTNER is strongly committed to respecting the privacy of its users. It has therefore drawn up the following Privacy Policy to duly inform you how the website functions and how your personal information is processed.

Any change in our Privacy Policy, subsequent to your active submission of your personal details, that may compromise your reasons for submitting them, will be made known to you if you provide us with a means of contacting you.

When you visit our site and sign into one of the available functionalities, we need to collect some of your personal details to be able to send you the information or explanation you have requested from us, and also to consider you in recruitment processes if you have actively expressed an interest in this.

We do not collect personal information that may identify you or that relates to your personal details without your consent. We may therefore collect and retain information you have voluntarily decided to give us, including, but not restricted to, individualised personal information, such as your name, address, email address and telephone number.

Should it be necessary for you to provide us with personal information to access a certain type of functionality, you will be expressly informed about how this information will be used.

In accordance with the law, data subjects are entitled to free access without restrictions, in order to confirm, rectify, delete or block the data that they have provided, and may do so in person or in writing to the address of this institution duly identified on the website, at any time and free of charge, pursuant to Law No. 67/98, of 26 October.

Minors under 18 years of age must obtain authorisation from parents or guardians before providing personal details to the YOUR VIP PARTNER site.

After the collection of individualised personal information that you have voluntarily submitted to us, YOUR VIP PARTNER will proceed to store and retain it until we receive instructions from you to the contrary, or until the law may require its removal. The storage of this information enables YOUR VIP PARTNER to continue to provide you with uninterrupted personalised services.

Any user may freely choose to provide, or not to provide, any individualised personal information.

Accordingly, should you not wish to receive communications from YOUR VIP PARTNER, even after having provided us with your details, please contact us by email general@yourvippartner.com.

All rights not expressly granted by YOUR VIP PARTNER are reserved rights. Therefore all texts, images, illustrations, photographs, advertising, trademarks and other elements of the site content are protected by law, and any copying, reproduction, circulation or broadcasting, use, modification, sale, publication, distribution, or any other use, total or partial, whatever the means used may be, is expressly prohibited.

The free uses authorised by law, in particular the right of quotation, provided its origin is clearly stated, are an exception to this prohibition.

Authorisation is granted to use documents from this site, provided the copyright notice appears on all copies. The use of such documents must be exclusively for information, and not commercial or personal, purposes, and they may not be copied or placed on any network computer or circulated in any other means of communication, nor may any modifications be made to the documents. Infringement will lead to prosecution.

Although the personal details supplied to us are subject to what is defined in our privacy policy, we understand that all information conveyed to us through the internet (including suggestions, material and ideas) shall be our property and for our exclusive, albeit restricted, use. This information will not have to be treated by us as confidential.

Some parts of the site may contain images covered by the copyright of their suppliers (such as, for example, image bank photographs).

Any software that may be available for downloading from the YOUR VIP PARTNER site is the copyright of the operator who supplies it. The terms of use of this software are established by the operator who makes it available, and we therefore recommend that these be read.

In order to facilitate their accessibility, YOUR VIP PARTNER may include links to other sites on the Internet. When the links to these sites are used, the rules for the site should be checked and accepted prior to use. It is not possible for us to guarantee their quality, neither do we accept any responsibility for the content or further functionalities of these sites.

The YOUR VIP PARTNER website is not responsible for the content or the subject matter of any other website, including any site that has provided access to its portal or that has been accessed through its portal.

Neither YOUR VIP PARTNER, nor any other party involved in the creation, production, maintenance or implementation of the site, may be held responsible for any losses or damages under public liability (including, but not limited to, substantive damages, loss of earnings and damages for pain and suffering, caused directly or consequentially), that may arise as a consequence of the correct or incorrect use of the site and of its contents by the user, or from the access to the user's computer and software system by third parties, viruses etc.

The information appearing on the site must be regarded as being of an informative nature. Despite the efforts of YOUR VIP PARTNER to keep the contents updated and reliable, it may contain inaccuracies or typing errors, or be out of date, and it may be altered at any time without any obligation on the part of YOUR VIP PARTNER to give prior notice of this. Its use as the basis for decision-making is therefore not recommended.

YOUR VIP PARTNER has no responsibility for the quality, accuracy, timeliness, reliability or any other aspect of these products and services. If you make a purchase from a merchant on the Service, or on a third-party website that you have accessed via a link on the Service, the information obtained during your visit to that merchant's online store or site, and the information that you give as part of the transaction, such as your credit card number and contact information, may be collected by both the merchant and YOUR VIP PARTNER. A merchant may have privacy and data collection practices that are different from YOUR VIP PARTNER. YOUR VIP PARTNER has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies. In addition, when you purchase products or services on or through the Service, you may be subject to additional terms and conditions that specifically apply to your purchase or use of such products or services.

You agree to only purchase goods or services for yourself or for another person for whom you are legally permitted to do so. When making a purchase for a third party that requires you to submit the third party's personal information to us or a merchant, you represent that you have obtained the express consent of such third party to provide such third party's personal information.

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless the Company, its licensees, and their officers, directors, employees and agents, from and against any claims, actions or demands, including without limitation reasonable legal and accounting fees, alleging or resulting from (i) any material you provide to a YOUR VIP PARTNER Site, (ii) any web site content that you use or (iii) your breach of the terms of these Terms and Conditions. The Company shall provide notice to you promptly of any such claim, suit, or proceeding and shall assist you, at your expense, in defending any such claim, suit or proceeding.

The user is also prohibited from creating or introducing into this site any type of virus, worm, Trojan horse, script or any other code or program that may contain destructive or harmful properties, and from encouraging third parties to do so.

YOUR VIP PARTNER site was designed according to the best technical quality. However, it does not guarantee the non-interruption or disturbance of the service, loss of information, picking up and viewing technical failures, impossibility to use it due to any cause, inexistence of files or formats exempted from errors or of computer viruses.

Whenever that happens, the YOUR VIP PARTNER shall rapidly re-establish the proper working of the service, but it declines any responsibility for any pecuniary or non-pecuniary damages arising from the correct or incorrect access or use of the site.

This notice of resignation is not aimed at limiting the liability of the YOUR VIP PARTNER contrarily to the applicable legislation or to exclude it in case it is legally inadmissible.
