Compliance with these rules is an obligation of all who legally access the personal data.

 

It is fundamental for the protection and safeguarding of information that users take the action of Safe Behavior, consistent with the objective of protection of information, and should assume proactive and engaged attitudes with regard to the protection of information.

 

Notwithstanding the security measures adopted by EW2Health, we are obliged to alert anyone browsing the Internet that they take additional security measures, ensuring the use of an up-to-date computer and browser in terms of properly configured security patches, with active firewall, antivirus and anti-spyware and to make sure of the authenticity of the websites you visit on the Internet, and avoid websites that you don't trust.

 

If we become aware that the security of the mobile app has been compromised or users' personal information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including, but not limited to, security attacks or fraud, we reserve the right to take reasonably appropriate measures, including, but not limited to, investigation and reporting, notification and cooperation with law enforcement authorities. In the event of a data breach, we will make every reasonable effort to notify affected individuals if we believe that there is a reasonable risk of damage to you as a result of the breach or if notice is required by law. When we do, we'll post a notice on the mobile app and send you an email.

7. How does the Data Retention Policy work?

EW2Health keeps sets of personal data stored in accordance with contractual, regulatory and other legal bases applicable to the modalities of processing of personal data.

 

There is a variety of processing of personal data whose filing period is not determined by law. In these situations, EW2Health stipulates a time limit of custody that is consistent with market practices and the nature of the treatment, as long as there is no specific determination by law or regulatory authority.

 

Ongoing investigative hypotheses, administrative and judicial proceedings are valid reasons for data maintenance and, regardless of consent, storage periods may be extended in such cases.

 

EW2Health reserves the right to store the data until the end of the prescribed and/or expiration period of lawsuits, as stipulated by law.

 

8. What are your rights?

Under the General Data Protection Act, the data subject is guaranteed, among others, the right of access, update, portability, rectification, or deletion of their Personal Data, upon written request addressed to the Data Protection Officer (DPO) at privacidade@sinque.co (Brazil) and privacy@sinque.co (outside Brazil).

 

These requests can be exercised free of charge and answered as soon as possible and always within 15 (fifteen) days.
