The BEYONDLISBON® SITE has been set up as an open internet portal for the promotion and development of tourism in specific areas of Portugal. As a pure service and information platform, the BEYONDLISBON® SITE also includes links to websites of third parties (including affiliations), whose contents cannot be, nor is the intent of the BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS they become, controlled by BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS. WE expressly point out that the BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS bear no responsibility for these websites and the content therein. The setting of links on BEYONDLISBON® SITE is purely an information service related to PRODUCTS, SERVICES or LOCATIONS relating to Portugal and available for turists and users of the site. BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS do not adopt the contents of these web sites as their own. The access to the content of external web sites is effected at USER's own risk and responsibility.


By proceeding to use or view the BEYONDLISBON® SITE, USERS consent that BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS may process personal data (including sensitive personal data) related to them and collected from USERS under their explicit or implied interactions with BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS through any BEYONDLINBONR MAIL ADDRESSES. Disclosure of such data will only occur if USERS explicitly (by use of any e-mail platforms to the official BEYONDLISBON® MAIL ADDRESSES) allows BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS to do so, except in cases where it clearly states otherwise or the acceptance of the USERS is implied; USERS may, at any time, request (by use of any e-mail platforms to the official BEYONDLISBON® MAILS) that such data be taken out of public display on the BEYONDLISBON® SITE.

WE may further collect and process information provided at any registration, subscription, material posting or further information request, including of SERVICES. WE may ask USERS for further information at any time, which USERS may or not supply; that decision at the discretion of the USERS may have unexpected results of which the BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS take no responsability for. If you contact the US, WE may keep a record of that correspondence. WE may also ask USERS to complete surveys that WE use for research purposes, although USERS do not have to respond to them. WE also may keep details of USERS visits to BEYONDLISBON® SITE (including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, for any purposes that WE solely find appropriate) and the resources that USERS access.

WE use information held about USERS to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for USERS and for USERS' browsing devices; to provide USERS with information regarding PRODUCTS or SERVICES that you request from us or which WE feel may interest you, where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes (or where the PRODUCTS and SERVICES are publically presented in the BEYONDLISBON® SITE), and about LOCATIONS in Portugal; to carry out obligations arising from any possible contracts entered into between US and USERS; to allow you to participate in interactive features of BEYONDLISBON® SITE or officially associated social network sites, when you choose to do so; to notify USERS about changes to the BEYONDLISBON® SITE.

WE will not use USERS DATA (except DATA allowed by USERS to be used for a specific purpose and / or already publicly displayed), or permit third parties to use USERS data stored by US, to provide USERS with any information about PRODUCTS or SERVICES which may be of interest to USERS, but where USERS have not allowed to transmit such DATA to third parties and / or allowed to be contacted for PRODUCT or SERVICE offers by such third parties. USERS under the age of 18 should not supply US with personal data without the consent of a parent or guardian. We do not request personal data from USERS under the age of 18, neither do we collect such data, nor forward it to third parties, should the USERS be clearly identified, or otherwise determined by US to be, under 18 years of age. The parents, guardians or legal representatives of underage USERS will be held responsible for any actions made by minors under their charge. Full responsibility for deciding the specific content and SERVICES that minors can access lies with the adults caring for them. As it is possible for minors to access unsuitable information over the Internet, be informed that there are devices, mainly computer programs, for filtering and blocking information, and which limit what content is available; although they are not infallible, they are particularly useful for controlling and restricting material that minors may access.

WE do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to current of future advertisers, but WE may provide them with aggregate information about USERS (for example, we may inform them that 100 people aged under 40 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day) if at all available. WE may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in specific LOCATIONS). WE may make use of USERS' DATA we have collected from USERS to enable US to comply with any of our current or future advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.

WE may disclose any USERS' DATA to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply BEYONDLISBON® SITE's terms of use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of the BEYONDLISBON® SITE, US or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection, credit risk reduction, and others. WE may collect information about USERS's browsing devices, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our USERS' browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual. For the same reason, WE may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which would most likely be stored on the hard drive of USERS' browsing devices. Cookies are small text files sent by a web server to a USER's browser and saved on the hard disk of the used browsing device. They help US to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service and to make navigation easier for USERS, to estimate the audience size and usage pattern, to store information about USERS's preferences, to allow us to customise the BEYONDLISBON® SITE according to USERS' individual interests, to speed up searches and to recognise USERS when they return. USERS may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on the browser which allows USERS to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if USERS select this setting they may be unable to access certain parts of BEYONDLISBON® SITE now or in the future or this may restrict some of the functions on BEYONDLISBON® SITE. Unless USERS have adjusted the browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system may automatically issue cookies when you enter BEYONDLISBON® SITE.

The DATA WE collect from USERS may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA") USERS agree to this transfer, storing or processing. WE will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that USERS' DATA is treated securely. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is never completely secure. Although WE will do our best to protect your personal data, WE cannot guarantee the security of USERS' DATA transmitted to our site; any transmission is at USERS' own risk. Once WE have received any USERS information, WE will use strict procedures and security features to try and prevent unauthorised access. WE have in place technical security measures provided by our webhost provider to protect USERS' personal DATA against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Security measures are revised on an ongoing basis by our webhost provider to encompass new technological developments. This data protection declaration does not extend to the use of any external links that may be included on BEYONDLISBON® SITE. If WE include links, WE endeavour to ensure that they also comply with our DATA protection and security standards. However, WE have no control over the compliance of other website providers with DATA protection and security provisions. WE would therefore ask you to refer to the websites of the providers concerned for information on their own DATA protection declarations.

USERS have the right to ask us not to process or hold their DATA for any purposes. We will comply with that request, however, previously accepted to be sent, stored and transmitted DATA may not be recoverable for purposes of deletion, since DATA dessimination may have gone beyond BEYONDLISBON® CONTROLLERS' control, in which case we will delete information under our control, but may only request other DATA not under our controlto be deleted. Likewise, at any time, USERS may request US to rectify their DATA under our control, telling US what information is incorrect and asking for it to be corrected through any of the BEYONDLISBON® MAIL ADDRESSES set out by US for that general purpose.

WE reserve the right to amend our security and data protection measures if this is necessary due to technological developments. In this case and if relevant and appropriate, WE will also adjust our data protection information accordingly. USERS must therefore ensure that they are referring to the most up-to-date version of our Terms of Use. WE also reserve the right to not be held accountable if the Terms of Use is not available on the BEYONDLISBON® SITE, for whatever reason, or if the Terms of Use are not properly updated on the BEYONDLISBON® SITE. Likewise, any error in the Terms of Use which directly damages US or others, may be due to hacking attempts or misguided actions or deeds and as such should be disregarded and WE should be warned of such; WE strongly encourage USERS to report any strange occurances or situations related to the Terms of Use of BEYONDLISBON® SITE to US, we will make all possible attempts to correct it in the least possible amount of time. WE will assume that any problems occuring due to the BEYONDLISBON® SITE's Terms of Use to be non-existant, if they are not reported first to US, by using BEYONDLISBON® MAIL ADDRESSES and been given enough and proper time to be corrected by US.
