1. Which data about you do we collect, and for what purpose?

Our site collects and uses some of your personal data, to make it feasible to provide services and enhance the experience of use. The client supplies this data at the moment of purchasing a certain product, to allow the generation of a tax invoice (Nota Fiscal) and to make sure that the delivery of the product by electronic mail is made in an appropriate fashion.

1.1. Personal data supplied by the client

  •  Name, e-mail, Individual Taxpayer Number (CPF) or Corporate Taxpayer Number (CNPJ), postcode. Purpose: Generation of tax invoice and sending of the digital product to the client by e-mail.
  • Payment information (credit card, bank payment docket, PayPal, GPay, etc.) Purpose: Payment for the digital product. Sensitive payment data are not accessed or stored here at Simplifying Theory, being duly protected by cryptography and treated by the Hotmart payment method. The collection, processing, and use of such materials is the duty and responsibility of the Hotmart company (LAUNCH PAD TECNOLOGIA, SERVIÇOS E PAGAMENTOS LTDA), and the user using the payment method made available does agree with, and grant consent for, the Hotmart Privacy Policy.  In the same way, if another payment method is used, such as PayPal (for example), the user agrees with this method’s respective Privacy Policy. The Descomplicando a Música company shall not be held responsible for the use that such platforms make of the users’ data.

4. How will your data be stored, and for how long?

Your personal data as collected by Simplifying Theory shall be used and stored for as long as necessary for provision of the service, or so that the purposes listed in the present Privacy Policy and in the Terms and Conditions are effectively achieved, considering the rights of the owners of the data and of the controllers.

Data may be excluded from our databases or anonymised, should this be requested by the client. Here we point out that the information passed on to Hotmart is under the responsibility of this latter company and, therefore, the client needs to contact the platform directly, in this case. Non-exclusion shall be enforced in the cases legally mentioned in article 16 of the General Data Protection Regulation, namely:

I – Compliance with legal or regulatory obligations, by the controller;

II – For a study by research institutions, with assured anonymity of personal data whenever possible;

III – Transfer to third parties, provided the requirements for data treatment, as mentioned in this Law, are duly followed; or

IV – the exclusive use of the controller, with third-party access being forbidden, and provided data has been anonymised.

This means that personal information about you, which is essential for carrying out certain legal, judicial and administrative requirements and/or for the exercise of the right to defence in lawsuits and administrative processes, shall be maintained, even though the remaining data is excluded.

The storage of data collected by Simplifying Theory reflects our commitment to security and privacy of your data. We make use of measurements and technical solutions for protection, so we can ensure confidentiality, integrity, and inviolability of data. In addition, we also have security measures, appropriate for the risks, and with controlled access to the stored information.

5. What do we do to keep your data safe?

To keep your personal information safe, we use special electronic and management tools, aimed at the protection of your privacy.

We apply these tools considering the nature of the personal data collected, the context and the purpose of the treatment, and the risks that possible violations would generate for the client’s rights and liberties, with regard to the data as collected and treated.

Among the measures we have adopted, we would like to highlight the following:

  • Only authorised persons have access to their personal data
  • Access to personal data is only granted when necessary
  • Your personal data are stored in a safe and reliable place.

Simplifying Theory agrees to adopt the best postures to avoid security incidents. However, we must point out that no virtual page is entirely risk-free or safe. It is possible that, in spite of all our security protocols, problems that are exclusively the fault of third parties could still occur, including cyber attacks from hackers, or resulting from negligence or carelessness of the user or client.

In case of security incidents that could generate risk or relevant damage to you or to any one of our users or clients, then we shall notify those affected and notify the National Data Protection Authority about what has happened, in compliance with the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation.
