This Privacy Policy is an integral part of the Nova Website Terms of Use (and all of its subsites) and governs the collection and processing of personal data provided by users on any part of the website, as well as the exercise of their rights with respect to this data in accordance with the Personal Data Protection Act in force.

When and how we collect your personal data

Nova assures visitors to this Nova SBE Executive Education website respect for their privacy.

Visiting this website, by itself, does not imply the automatic registration of any personal data that identifies you, except through your IP address and temporary file storage, also known as cookies, which allow us to collect information about the hardware of your equipment and your interactions with our website. This information helps us continually improve the content and functionality of our website, improving your user experience. To do this, we analyze data such as the type of equipment used, the geographical location, the number of visitors and the behavior on each web page. These cookies also serve to memorize previous access. You can delete cookies at any time or prohibit them from being hosted on your computer. Check your browser settings for this purpose.

Visitors to a website with a Smartsupp online chat, as is the case with this website, may enter personal data in their conversation voluntarily. This data will be stored on the servers of Smartsupp, the provider of online chat service. In addition, some technical data, such as IP address, browser type and version, operating system type and version, approximate location, among others, will also be collected by Smartsupp and accessed by Nova. Please be advised that by using Smartsupp's online chat application, cookies will also be stored and processed. By processing these cookie files, some personal data may be stored and associated with the visitor. This information will be used solely and exclusively to improve Nova's customer service experience. Please note that these companies respect the privacy of users and follow the privacy policies of the European Union.

If you do not agree with this collection of data and cookie files, you may access our website in incognito (private) mode to maintain your complete anonymity. Most modern browsers support this mode. By doing so, the visitor recognizes that certain features such as the Smartsupp online chat application may not work.

If you wish to download certain content (such as the executive education portfolios, promotional brochures, e-books or infographics), subscribe to the newsletter or sign up for Nova training programs and events, you will be presented with a form collection of personal data. The availability of this data is voluntary, and you are requested to accept, because we believe it is useful for us to provide a better-quality service. Sharing any unwanted information is not required.

If you complete any of the forms available for the purposes described above, we rely on your active consent for their activation and use. You may unsubscribe from these services at any time.

Who has access to your personal data

Nova is the entity responsible for processing the users personal data of its services and its website. However, this data may be collected and/or used by Nova SBE partners, namely technology partners and media and advertising agencies. Nova makes sure that its partners are subject to confidentiality obligations regarding this data that are no less rigid than Nova's.

When establishing relationships with external service providers, these entities are required to act following our internal data security and confidentiality policies when processing user data.

When storing or transferring data to a service provider based outside the European Economic Area, we take the necessary measures to ensure that your personal data is properly safeguarded.

Regarding personal and usage data collected through this website's online chat, all personal information is stored on Smartsupp's servers located in the Czech Republic. Since the Czech Republic is a member state of the European Union, no data will be sent or worked out of it.

Users of the Smartsupp service, in this case, Nova, may access and manage visitor data collected through the Smartsupp application on the Nova's website. All such data will be treated following the privacy statement presented.

As a rule, Nova does not share users personal data with third parties with whom it has not entered into a contractual relationship that provides for the confidential treatment of such data following Nova's privacy statement. Whenever sharing of other data takes place (eg usage data), the user will be informed in advance, and the identity of the recipients and the purpose of the processing of the transferred data will be transmitted, so that the user can decide whether or not accept sharing.

Nova may disclose your personal data to third parties provided that for this purpose it has unambiguously obtained the consent of the users referred to in the previous paragraph or when: (a) the transmission is made in compliance with a legal obligation, a decision of the National Data Protection Commission or a court order or (b) the communication is carried out to protect the vital interests of users or any other legitimate purpose provided by law.

Why we collect your personal data

The purpose of the personal data processing is the management of training programs organized by Nova. From time to time, Nova may use the contact information provided to give information it deems relevant, and you are always allowed to stop receiving such information.

Data is also collected for use by Nova SBE Executive Education marketing activities, to compile aggregate statistics, metrics, and generalized trend elements for the enhancement and optimization of advertising campaigns, and for other marketing, promotional, and analytical purposes.

When will you have access to your collected personal data

Under the terms provided by law, the user is guaranteed at any time the right to access, update and rectification of their personal data, as well as the right to oppose the processing of such personal data or make it available on the website, upon request,  addressed to Nova, formalized by email executiveducation@novasbe.pt.

How long do we store your information

We will keep your personal information as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected.

If you decide to unsubscribe from a service (e.g. newsletter), we will keep the personal details necessary to ensure that no unwanted communications will be sent to you.

Please note that at any time you may request the deletion of all your personal data from our databases. This request should be sent to executiveducation@novasbe.pt.

How we protect your personal data

Nova makes its best efforts to protect users personal data against unauthorized access via the Internet. To this end, it uses security systems, rules, and other procedures to ensure the protection of personal data as well as to prevent unauthorized access to, misuse, disclosure, loss or destruction of personal data.

However, it is your responsibility to guarantee and ensure that the computer you are using is adequately protected against harmful software, computer viruses, and worms.
