Privacy Statement for PortCast
“PortCast” is a service offered by Catarina Stichini, Förmansvägen 24, 2, 117 59 Stockholm, Sweden. Through this privacy statement, Catarina Stichini wishes to inform you of how your personal data is processed and in what form some of these data are made accessible for other users. All personal data is treated with the utmost care at PortCast. All the necessary steps are taken to guarantee the security of these data. This privacy statement supplements the General Terms and Conditions of PortCast. Please write to [email protected] if you have any queries relating to this document.
1. Which data are stored?
1.1. Personal data
When you register with us, we record and save your basic data such as name and email address together with other contact information such as user name and password. We may receive further information from you via the website (e.g. if you fill in your personal profile) or if you communicate with us. None of the registration data is accessible for other PortCast users unless you write a comment on the website. In that case, any person that accesses the website can see it.
One type of cookie automatically expires after your session has ended. This is called a session cookie. Your user settings, in particular, are saved as session cookies so that PortCast can always be used in the form you require.When you log in, you also have the option of saving your user name and password locally in encrypted form on your computer. You can save this cookie permanently for automatic log in with the function “Log me in automatically on this computer”. In addition to this, user settings, such as language selection, language recognition settings, user IDs for various applications, are saved in both session cookies and permanent cookies by PortCast in order to facilitate the use of PortCast.
1.3. Log files
Each time a page is called up, access data are saved in a protocol file, the server log. The data record thus saved contains the following data:
your IP address (by means of which your computer can be unambiguously identified)
the remote host (name and IP address of the computer requesting the page)
the time, the status, the quantity of data transferred and the Internet page from which you accessed the requested page (referrer)
The product and version information of the browser used (user agent)
Catarina Stichini uses a standardized webserver log file format for this purpose. Provided these data are not urgently required for the technical maintenance of the system or for the system security, they are anonymized instantly and the original protocols are deleted. Anonymization takes place by removal or truncation of the IP address by allocating a code not assigned to a user. Any allocation to an identified or identifiable person is therefore no longer possible. Catarina Stichini therefore uses the protocol data (logs) exclusively in anonymized form for statistical evaluations, hence without any allocation or references to your personal details. In this way, Catarina Stichini determines, for instance, on which days and at which times PortCast is particularly popular and what volume of data is generated on the PortCast web servers. Furthermore, Catarina Stichini can detect possible errors through the log files, e.g. faulty links or program errors, and thus use the log files for the ongoing development and refinement of PortCast. Catarina Stichini does not link the page requests and usage information to individual persons.
1.4. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how you use the site. As anonymization is activated for the data we collect, your IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory countries to the Treaty creating the European Economic Area.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activity for the website operator and to provide other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address transferred by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google. You may prevent the saving of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the data captured by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being captured and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
1.5. Social Plugins
We also use social plugins on our website. In the process, social plugins are incorporated from Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
All private messages between PortCast users via the PortCast website are saved on the PortCast servers. These private data are not made accessible to other users under any circumstances. Public comments in the products evaluation are saved permanently and you can’t delete them yourself.
1.7. Newsletter & emails
We send you emails for a variety of reasons. These may include confirmations of an order or of a registration. In the case of our newsletter emails, we record (e.g. by means of a so-called “tracking pixel”) whether an email is opened and which links in the email are clicked on; we do so to optimize our offers and tailor their design to meet your needs. We use these data to enable us to send newsletter contents to match your profile. If you wish to object to this use of your data, you can do so by canceling our newsletters. To cancel, click on the unsubscribe button at the end of the newsletter.
2. Purpose of storing the data
The purpose of gathering, saving, processing and using the data is solely to facilitate, maintain and develop the “PortCast” service provided by Catarina Stichini. This also comprises winning new customers and sales to existing ones. In particular, part of the ongoing development involves the use of anonymous statistics on the usage of the services. Movement profiles of individual users on the website are not created.
3. No forwarding of data to third parties
Catarina Stichini does not forward the personal data of its users to third parties unless the user has given his/her explicit consent or there is a legal requirement to forward the data. Personal details may also be passed on to third parties if this is legally permissible, and it is necessary to pass them on for the fulfillment of our contractual obligations towards our customers. In the case of payment processing, the data for processing the payment transaction are forwarded to the payment services provider if you do not supply the data directly. If you send your payment data directly to the payment services provider, we receive only very limited data. In such cases, we are merely informed whether or not the transaction relating to a specific transaction number has actually taken place. In such cases we do not receive your account data. If any third-party rights have been violated (in particular rights relating to copyright, trademarks, names and symbols) by the user, the user data will not be forwarded to the rights holder unless the latter conclusively demonstrates his/her claims to Catarina Stichini.
As a matter of principle, PortCast is directed towards users who have reached the age of majority. Any use by minors without the consent of their legal guardians is prohibited. Catarina Stichini therefore reserves the right to delete all data relating to underage users if no consent from the legal guardians is available.
5. Data security
Catarina Stichini employs safety precautions to guarantee that your data are protected against loss, modification or misuse. To this end, Catarina Stichini works with constantly updated firewalls meeting the industry standard as well as other security systems. At the same time, the user should be aware of the fact that one hundred per cent protection against attacks cannot be guaranteed because of the continual appearance of new viruses and other means of attacking the protected data systems of Internet services. Catarina Stichini will instigate civil and criminal proceedings against any attack by hackers and the like and will inform the users of any cases in which their data have been compromised.
6. Information, correction and deletion
If the user alters or corrects the details that he/she has provided and deletes old entries, the data previously entered by the user will be completely deleted automatically. An application for correction or deletion is not required. You can edit your personal data at any time at https://portcast.net/a-minha-conta/
6.2. Deletion of data
Should the user demand the deletion of his/her personal data, this may take place by email or letter.
First name and surname
Please note that due to caching systems, search engines, the interposition of proxy servers and the like, deleted data may continue to remain accessible even though they are no longer present within our systems.
