When you register through our Websites, you become a Registered Foundation User, and we may obtain some necessary and required information, including your name, e-mail address, area of expertise, and interest group (third sector, entrepreneur, student, others).
3. How we use your personal information
The information we collect (in some cases, in conjunction with non-personal information) enables us to keep you up-to-date and to provide Users with better use of our websites. For example:
Communication. We may use your personal information to send newsletters, as well as educational materials and dissemination for Foundation activities. If you no longer wish to participate in our mailing list, you may opt-out at any time via the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of the email that is sent or by submitting an unsubscribe request by to e-mail email@example.com.
From time to time, we may use the information you provide to send important notices, such as policy and condition announcements. In these cases, as the information is important to your interaction with the Foundation, you may not choose not to receive it.
4. Collection and use of non-personal information
If we combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information as long as that information remains combined.
5. Cookies and other technology
If you wish to block cookies, please refer to your browser guidelines.
As with most websites, we get some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), lookup and exit pages, operating system, date and time information, and click sequence data.
We use this information to understand and analyze preferences, administer the site, learn about User behavior on the site, and obtain demographic information about our user base in general. The Foundation may use this information in our outreach services.
In some of our email messages, we use a "click-through URL" linked to the Foundation's website content. When Users click one of these URLs, Users are sent to a different web server before reaching the landing page on our site. We monitor this click-through data to understand the interest in certain topics and to evaluate the effectiveness of communications with our Users. If you prefer not to be monitored this way, do not click text or image links in email messages.
Pixel tags allow us to send email messages in formats that Users can read and tell us whether or not the email has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to Users.
At any time, if you no longer wish to receive future contacts via email, request to unsubscribe.
6. Information Storage
The information we collect is stored in a reliable system and is usually used by technology companies located in Brazil.
In hiring these systems, the Foundation always seeks companies that employ best practices in the security of their information storage, establishing contracts that do not violate the privacy definitions provided in this Policy.
How long is the information stored?
If you request the deletion of your registration, we will take all necessary steps to, within a reasonable period from the date of the request, promote the definitive deletion of data and information made available and collected by the User, in compliance with current legislation.
In some cases, we may retain your information even if you delete your account, such as in the case of mandatory record-keeping under applicable law, if there is an unresolved issue related to your account (such as a complaint), or if necessary for our legitimate interests, such as fraud prevention and security enhancement for our Users.
7. Disclosure to third parties
Service Providers. We may use third parties and individuals to perform Website-related activities, including, but not limited to, service maintenance, database management, data analysis, and feature enhancement. These companies or individuals have or may have access to User information to perform tasks/routines on our behalf and are required not to use or disclose such information for any other purpose.

The Foundation also safeguards its ability to disclose and use such information to enforce the Terms and Conditions of Use or to protect our operations or its Users.

The Foundation takes precautions, including administrative, technical, technological, and physical measures, to protect the information collected against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
We only handle User data by implementing industry-leading security best practices for data protection. However, it is not possible to completely guarantee the non-occurrence of interceptions and breaches of the Foundation's systems and databases, since the internet has its security structure under constant improvement.
