After the above mentioned periods of data storage, the personal information will be deleted and /or cleared with efficient  safety.  

HOW CAN YOU ACCESS, AMEND OR DELETE THE PERSONAL DATA YOU HAVE PROVIDED TO US?  One of the main targets of the GDPR is to protect and clarify the rights of EU citizens and individuals in the EU with regard to data privacy. This means that you have several rights to your data, even when you have previously provided such data to  us. These entitlements are better described below. 

We will try to process your request without undue delay and, in any case, within one [1] month (subject to any extensions  permitted by law). Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any matters raised  and brought by you.  

RIGHT TO OBJECT: this right allows you to oppose the handling of your personal data, for the reasons related to your particular situation when your personal data are managed for one of the following purposes: (i) our legitimate interests; (ii)  to enable us to perform a task in the public interest or exercise official authority; (iii) to send you direct marketing  

materials, including profile definition; and (iv) scientific, historical, research or statistical purposes.  If you exercise the right to Object, we will terminate the processing of the data that you have objected to, unless:  - we can present evidence that we have legitimate compulsory grounds for the data management that overlap with your  interests; or  

- we are processing your data in order to declare, exercise or defence a right.  

RIGHT TO WITHDRAW CONSENT: If we have obtained your consent to handle your personal data for some activities (for example, for marketing purposes), you may withdraw this consent at any time and we will no longer perform the specific  activity you have previously consented upon, unless we consider that there is an alternative reason on our behalf to justify  the continuing data management, in which case we will inform you about such condition.  

RIGHT OF ACCESS BY THE DATA SUBJECT: You may request us, at any time, to confirm the information we have about  you, as well as additional information about the purposes of our data management, the period of time which we keep your  data, the existence of automated decisions, the recipients to whom the data are disclosed, among any other information  provided for in article 15 of GDPR. We may ask you to verify your identity and more information about your request. If we  grant you access to the information we keep about you, we will not charge for access unless your request is "manifestly  excessive or groundless". If you request us any additional copies of this information, we may charge you a reasonable  administrative cost, and where this is legally permitted. In cases where we it is legally permitted, we may deny your  request. If we refuse your request, you will always be informed of our reasons and grounds.  

RIGHT TO ERASURE: In some circumstances, you are entitled to request us to delete your personal data. Usually, the exercise of this right must meet one of the following criteria:  

- the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which we originally collected and/or processed; 

- when you have withdrawn your consent to process your data and there is no other valid reason why we should continue  to keep and process them;  

- if you object to processing and there are no legitimate interests that justify the said data processing;  - the data have been unlawfully processed (for instance, in a way that does not comply with the GDPR); or - the data needs to be deleted in order to comply with our legal obligations as data controller. 

Nevertheless, this right does not apply, and therefore TFP may continue to process your data in a legitimate manner, when  the following proves necessary:  

- to exercise the right to information and freedom of speech; 

- to comply with legal obligations, to perform a task of public interest or to perform official authority;  - for reasons of public health in the public interest;  

- for record, research or statistical purposes; or  

- to exercise or protect a right.  

When presented with a valid request to erase data, we will take all the reasonable and practical steps to delete the said  data.  

RIGHT TO RESTRICTION OF PROCESSING DATA: In some circumstances, you have the right to restrict the processing of  your personal data. This means that we can only carry on storing your data and we will not be able to carry out any further  processing of your data until: (i) one of the circumstances listed below is resolved; (ii) we have obtained your consent; or (iii) additional processing is required in order to declare, exercise or defend a right, the protection of the rights of another  person or on grounds of important public interest of the EU or of a Member State. 

The circumstances in which you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data are:  - in the event of answering the accuracy of the personal data we deal with. In this case, the processing of your personal  data will be restricted for the period during which the accuracy of the data is being checked; 

- if you object to the processing of your personal data based on our legitimate interests. In this situation, you may request  that your data will be restricted while we confirm our grounds for your personal data processing; - if the processing of your data is unlawful, but you would rather restrict our data processing instead of their erasure; and  - if we no longer need to process your personal data, but we need the data to establish, exercise or defend a right.  If we have shared your personal data with third parties, they will also be notified of the restriction to processing, unless this  notification is impossible to make or involves a disproportionate effort.

HOW DO WE STORE AND TRANSFER YOUR DATA AT AN INTERNATIONAL LEVEL?  Data transfer to other countries (countries outside the European Union) only occurs if it is necessary for the execution of  orders or upon your requests (for example, payment orders or shipment of products), by legal requirement or if you have  given us an express authorisation to do so. If requesting service providers of third countries is required, they will be obliged  to comply with the written instructions in this regard by signing an agreement with the standard contractual clauses of the  European Union, in order to comply with the level of data protection applicable in the European Union. You will receive  detailed information from us separately as required by law. We want to ensure that your data is stored and transferred in a  safe way. Therefore, we will only transfer data outside the European Economic Area or EEA (i e, the State Members of  European Union together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) where this is in line with the data protection legislation  and the means of transfer provide adequate guarantees in relation to your data, namely:  

- through a data transfer agreement incorporating the current standard contractual clauses adopted by the European  Commission for the transfer of personal data by data controllers in the EEA to controllers and subcontractors in jurisdictions  lacking adequate data protection legislation; or  

- transferring your data to a country where the European Commission has noted an adequate level of data protection; or - if you have consented to the transfer of data.  

To ensure that your personal data receives an adequate level of protection, we have applied appropriate procedures with  third parties with whom we share your personal data to guarantee that your personal information is handled by such third  parties in compliance with data protection law.  


User guarantees that the personal data provided to TFP are correct and accurate and will notify any change or amendment  to them assuming sole responsibility for losses and damage caused by erroneous, inexact or incomplete communication of  these data. User is explicitly warned that when disclosing personal data in public TFP media such as Facebook, Google +,  Twitter and Instagram, this information may be seen and used by third parties. TFP does not read any personal  communication published or posted on our costumers’ own web pages.

We may also use cookies on our website to analyse traffic and for advertising and marketing purposes, which  do not harm your system.  

If you wish to check or change the type of cookies you accept, you can do so in your browser settings.  


We use cookies basically to do two things: to track your use of our website, allowing us to understand how you use the site  and to track any patterns that may arise individually or from larger groups, which will help us to develop and improve our  site and services in response to what visitors want and need. 

Cookies can be: 

- Session Cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when  you close the browser – they usually store an anonymous ID session allowing you to browse a site without having to log in  to each page, but do not collect any information from your computer; or  

- Persistent Cookies: these are stored as a file on your computer and are maintained when you close your web browser.  The cookie can be read by the site that created it when you return to that site. We use persistent cookies such as Google  Analytics, Facebook and Mailchimp. 

- Strictly necessary Cookies: They are essential to enable you to use the site effectively and they can not be deactivated.  Without these cookies, the services that are available to you on the website could not be provided. These cookies do not  collect information about you that can be used for marketing purposes.  

- Performance Cookies: These cookies allow us to monitor and improve the performance of our site. For example, they  allow us to track visits, identify traffic sources, and to check which parts of the site are most popular. 

- Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow our website to remember the choices you have made (such as your username,  language and region where you are) and provide improved functional options. For example, we may provide you with  important news or updates on our website. These cookies can also be used to remind you of changes you made: from the  size of text, type of font, and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They can also be used to provide services  you have requested, such as viewing a video. The information that these cookies collect are usually anonymous.  

- Customized Cookies: These cookies are persistent (while you are registered with us) and mean that when you sign in or  return to a web page you may see similar adverts to those you have browsed previously.

This may arise, for instance, in circumstances where we need to obtain legal advice in relation to legal proceedings or if we  are required by law to retain or disclose specific information as actors in legal proceedings. 


TFP may periodically change this Privacy Policy to reflect company image and costumers feedback. We encourage our  Costumers to review our Privacy Policy to be up to date on how TFP protects their information, without prejudice of also  being informed of when important amendments to our Privacy policy occur.  

TFP welcomes your comments regarding this Privacy Policy. If you believe that TFP is not complying with this Privacy  Statement, please contact us. We will consider your suggestion and reply to you as soon as possible.
