Who we share the data with:

The only data provided by the data subject and shared with a third party is the email for sending newsletters.

How we keep the data secure:

Endoscopy News uses reasonable market means and those legally required to preserve the privacy of the personal data it collects. Therefore, it adopts various precautions, in observance of guidelines on security standards, such as:

  • Protection against unauthorized access to its systems.
  • SSL Encryption
  • WAF – Web Application Firewall
  • Software update policy
  • Maintenance of an inventory indicating the time, duration, identity of the employee, or the person responsible for the access, and the file object, based on connection and application access logs.

In addition to technical efforts, Endoscopy News also adopts institutional measures aimed at the protection of personal data. Consequently, it maintains a structure and a privacy governance program applied to its activities, which are constantly updated.

Even though Endoscopy News makes the best efforts to preserve privacy and protect the data of the Data Subjects, no transmission of information is completely secure. Therefore, Endoscopy News cannot fully guarantee that all data it receives or sends will not be subject to unauthorized access carried out through methods designed to improperly obtain information. For this reason, in addition to our internal regulations that take care of data exchange, we encourage Data Subjects to take appropriate measures to protect themselves, such as keeping their logins and passwords confidential. It is important to note that such information is personal, non-transferable, and the exclusive responsibility of the Data Subjects.

Retention of Collected Information:

In order to protect the privacy of the Data Subjects, the personal data processed by Endoscopy News will be deleted when it is no longer useful for the purposes for which it was collected, or when the Data Subject requests its deletion, unless its maintenance is expressly authorized by applicable law or regulation.

Information may be retained for the exercise of the controller’s rights in judicial or administrative proceedings.

The data subject may request the deletion of data through a direct request to the email address contato@endoscopy.news.

Rights of the Data Subject:

In compliance with applicable regulations concerning the processing of personal data, Endoscopy News respects and ensures to the Data Subject the possibility of submitting requests based on the following rights:

  1. Confirmation of the existence of data processing
  2. Access to data
  3. Correction of incomplete, inaccurate, or outdated data
  4. Anonymization, blocking, or deletion of unnecessary, excessive data, or data processed in non-compliance

Some of these rights can be exercised directly by the Data Subject through the management of information about their account, while others will depend on sending a request to our Data Protection Officer via email: contato@endoscopy.news, for subsequent evaluation and adoption of further measures by Endoscopy News.

The User is aware that the deletion of essential information for the management of their account with Endoscopy News will result in the termination of their registration, with the consequent cancellation of the services then provided.

Endoscopy News will make every effort to respond to requests in the shortest possible time. However, justifiable factors, such as the complexity of the requested action, may delay or prevent prompt handling.

Finally, the Data Subject should be aware that their request may be legally rejected, either for formal reasons (such as their inability to prove their identity) or legal reasons (such as the request for deletion of data whose maintenance is a free exercise of right by Endoscopy News).

Policy Revisions:

Should Endoscopy News modify this policy, such changes will be prominently posted on the website, and, whenever possible, the data subject will be informed.

Legislation and Jurisdiction:

This policy will be governed, interpreted, and enforced in accordance with the laws of the Federative Republic of Brazil, particularly Law No. 13.709/2018, regardless of the laws of other states or countries.
