Bizay processes and stores data in Portugal for back-up and recovery purposes or to enable Bizay to offer the User certain services. Depending on where the User is located, Portugal may not have data protection laws that provide an equivalent level of protection to the laws in your home country or jurisdiction. By using the website and providing Bizay with its personal data, the User is consenting to the transfer and processing of its personal data in jurisdictions outside of its home country or jurisdiction.
On what grounds can Bizay treat your personal data?
In general, the personal data collected is intended for the management of the contractual relationship, the provision of the contracted services, the adequacy of our services to your needs and interests, and so that we can inform you about our events and our services/products.
The processing of personal data must have a basis that legitimises such processing, which may be, among others:
- Consent: when you have your express consent - in writing, orally or through the validation of an option - and prior consent and if that consent is free, informed, specific and unambiguous. Examples are your consent to send direct marketing messages; profiling; call recording;
- Contract performance and pre-contractual due diligence: where the processing of personal data is necessary for the conclusion, performance and management of the contract concluded with Bizay, such as for the use of the website, requests for information, preparation of service proposals, provision of services, contact/replaints management, invoicing/ collection/payments;
- Compliance with legal obligations: where the processing of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which the Bizay is subject, such as the communication of data to law enforcement, judicial, fiscal or regulatory bodies;
- Legitimate interest: where the processing of personal data corresponds to a legitimate interest of the Bizay or of third parties, such as improvement of quality of service, detection of fraud, where the reasons for its use must prevail over the rights of the data subject.
We process and store your personal data to the extent necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. We keep your data only for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.
But where there is no specific legal obligation, then the data will only be processed for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes for which they were collected and preserved and always in accordance with the law.
Bizay may keep other personal data for longer than the duration of the contractual relationship, either on the basis of your consent, or to secure rights or duties related to the contract, or because you have legitimate interests on which to base it, but always for the period strictly necessary for the fulfilment of the respective purposes and in accordance with the law.
As a rule, Bizay does not share personal data about you with other persons or non-affiliated companies without your consent. However, Bizay provides data to its agents and its service providers and other trusted service providers for limited purposes, such as:
- The fulfillment of customer orders and the processing of credit card transactions;

Bizay provides its vendors with the first name and city/district/country of residence of Bizay customers who have purchased Bizay products from that vendor. Bizay may also disclose customer data (including the User's name, addresses, telephone number and account activity) whenever, in its sole discretion, it determines that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate for:

In addition, it is possible that in the future another company may acquire Bizay or its assets or that Bizay may partner with or purchase another company to continue to do business as a combined entity. In the event that any such transaction occurs, it is possible that the User information, including its personal data, may be transferred to the new business entity as one of Bizay’s assets. In such an event, Bizay will update this policy to reflect any change in ownership or control of your Personal Information.
