Sometimes we need to share your Personal Data with third parties that provide services on our behalf.
It is the case, for example, with services we hire to host our databases of for auditing. Below we describe some situations, considering the context of BTG, in which we may share your Personal Data:
Our providers. We rely on the help of providers who can process the Personal Data that we collect. We always seek to carefully evaluate our providers and enter contractual obligations for the protection of Personal Data and information security with them, in order to minimize risks for Data Subjects. Depending on the activity they perform, such as in cases of access to costumer information, for instance, we may request our providers’ Personal Data for verification similar to that applied to BTG Pactual employees to establish their reputability, always aiming to process as little Personal Data as possible. Among these providers are, for example, companies with public databases that we hire to assist us in credit analysis for when you open an account or contract a credit operation, as well as card manufacturing and processing companies, investment software companies, among others.
Analytics. Data stored by BTG may be used for statistical purposes (analytics), so that BTG can understand who are the people that visit our website and that are consumers of our Products and Services. This data is pseudonymizable and is not to identify Data Subjects nor make them identifiable, but only to better comprehend how they access BTG’s Digital Platform to improve our service provision and customize products directed according to their interests.
Public Authorities. We must comply with the law. Thus, if an authority with legal competence, such as BACEN, CVM or Procon, requires BTG to share certain Personal Data to, for example, meet regulatory needs, we will need to share this information. We are against any abuse of authority and, if BTG understands that a certain order is abusive, we will always privilege your privacy.
Economic group. If you, for example, are interested or may be interested in our services by other companies in our Economic Group, we may share your Personal Data with companies in our economic group or with other companies or people trusted to process such information for this purpose.
Business Partners. We may share your Personal Data, such as registration information or browsing data or use of the Platform, with our business partners or with other trusted companies or people (such as administrators and/or investment fund managers) to process such information for purposes of providing services that interest you or that may interest you.
If you have any questions regarding who these companies or our providers are, feel free to contact us through the channels provided in this Policy.
As mentioned in the item above, we may share your personal information with BTG employees, representatives and affiliated companies or partners based outside your country of residence, in order to provide our services to you. We may, for example, transfer your Personal Data to the company responsible for hosting our databases, whose head-quarters are located abroad.
These transfers only involve companies that demonstrate compliance with applicable data protection laws, and main-tain a similar or stricter level of compliance than the provisions of Brazilian legislation. In addition, the Data transferred may only be processed, in accordance with this Policy and BTG’s corporate rules, for the provision of our services or fulfillment of the company’s objective.
If you have any doubts about who these companies are, feel free to contact us through the channels available in this Policy.
Your Personal Data is yours alone and the Brazilian LGPD law as well as EU GDPR guarantee that you have a number of rights related to it. We are committed to fulfilling these rights and, in this section, we explain how you can exercise them with BTG. As a Data Owner you have the following rights:
|Transparency||You have the right to request for information relating to the processing of your Personal Data provided it’s requested through the official privacy communication channel and that it’s within the scope presented in this policy. We shall deliver it to you in a concise, transparent, intelligible and easily accessible form.|
|Confirmation and Access||Allows you to verify whether BTG processes your Personal Data and, if so, request a copy of the Personal Data we hold about you.|
|Correction/Rectification||Allows you to request the correction of incomplete, inaccurate, or outdated Personal Data.|
|Anonymization, blocking or
|Allows you to ask us to (a) anonymize your data so that it can no
longer be related to you and therefore ceases to be Personal Data;
(b) block your Data, temporarily suspending your ability to process
it; and (c) delete your Data.
|Portability||You have the right to request, upon express request, that BTG
provides you, or a third party of your choice, with your Personal
Data in a structured and interoperable format, for transfer to another
service or product provider, provided that it does not violate the
intellectual property or business secret of the company.
|Information about sharing||You have the right to know the public and private entities with which BTG shares data. We will keep in this Policy information about the types of partners with whom we share personal data. In any case, if you have questions or want more details, you have the right to ask us for this information.|
|Information about the
possibility of not consenting
|Allows you to have clear and complete information about the
possibility and consequences of not providing consent. Your
consent, when necessary, must be free and informed. Therefore,
whenever we ask for your consent, you are free to withhold it –
although in such cases we may have to limit our Services.
|Withdrawal of Consent||You have the right to withdraw your consent in relation to
processing activities that are based on consent. However, this will
not affect the legality of any processing carried out previously. If you
withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain
Services, but we will notify you when this occurs.
|You have the right to request the review of automated decisions that may affect your interests.|
If you have any questions about these issues or how you can exercise these rights, please feel free to contact us through the channels provided in this Policy.
We store and maintain your information: (i) for as long as required by law; (ii) until the end of the processing of personal data, as mentioned below; or (iii) for the time necessary to preserve BTG’s legitimate interest. Thus, we will process your data, for example, during the applicable statute of limitations or while necessary to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
The end of the processing of personal data will occur in the following cases:
- When the purpose for which the Data Subject’s personal data were collected is achieved and/or the personal data collected is no longer necessary or relevant to the scope of that purpose;
- When the Data Subject has the right to request the termination of the treatment and the deletion of his personal data and he does so; and
We are responsible for processing your Personal Data and use it for lawful purposes, as described in this Policy. And, in order to ensure your privacy and the protection of your Personal Data, we adopt the appropriate security prac-tices for our market, including:
- encryption and two-factor authentication systems in our Platforms environments;
- training and awareness policies to keep our employees up to date on how to avoid risks to the Data Subject and identify threats and malicious activities;
- controls and access privileges to Personal Data, so that employees can only access data strictly necessary for the performance of their duties; and
- control and monitoring to prevent security incidents, including data leakage, carried out by our Information Security team and by automated security tools recognized by the market.
We work to protect your Personal Data, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized or third-party access to your account, hardware or software failure that is not under the control of BTG and other factors can compromise the security of your Personal Data. For this reason, your actions are fundamental for the mainte-nance of a safe environment for all. You can help us by adopting good security practices in relation to your data (for example, not sharing passwords with third parties), and if you identify or become aware of something that undermines the security of your data, please contact us through our Data Protection Officer, whose contact channels are below.
