BRAZILIAN DATA PROTECTION LAW (“LGPD”)
The Brazilian Data Protection Law or the LGPD, which is derived from its Portuguese name. The LGPD is Brazil’s law on online privacy requirements and certain rights and privileges given to data subjects.
Under the LGPD, “processing” is defined as collection, production, reproduction, transmission, receipt, use, classification, filing, storage, control or evaluation of data, deletion, dissemination, extraction, modification, and communication. The LGPD applies to “personal data” that is defined as any information related to an identified or identifiable natural person. Moreover, sensitive data such as political opinion, racial or ethnic origin, religion, health, sex and more as they relate to a natural person.
Under the LGDP, the data subjects are given the following rights relating to their personal data:
- Awareness and confirmation of the existence of data processing;
- Anonymization or pseudonymization or removal of pieces of data that have been collected or processed without compliance with the LGPD;
- Access to personal data;
- Correction of inaccurate data;
- Right to request deletion;
- Right to revocation of consent;
- Right to request disclosure of any third parties with whom personal data is shared;
- Access to the customer policy information and consent revocation terms and conditions.
The data subject has the right to exercise these rights with our business Walking the Parks anytime, free of charge.
As a business, we can only process personal data if there is any legal basis for processing that data. The LGPD provides approximately ten (10) legal basis for processing data. The ten grounds are:
- The data subject gives express consent to process the data.
- Data processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation.
- Processing is essential to protect the life or physical safety of the data subject or another third party.
- Necessary to execute a contract or contract-related procedures that the data subject is a party to at the request of the data subject.
- Necessary to process to fulfill the legitimate interests of the controller or of the third party, except when the data subject’s fundamental rights prevail.
- Necessary to process in order to protect credit (refers to a credit score).
- You need to process to protect the health in relation to activities of health professionals or health entities.
- Necessary to process to carry out studies by research entities that ensure, when possible, the anonymization of personal data.
- Necessary to process to exercise rights in judicial, arbitration, and administrative procedures.
- Necessary to process to execute public policies provided in laws or regulations or those that are based on contracts, policies, agreements, or similar binding instruments.
Walking the Parks mostly uses legal basis #1 and #5 above, which are that the data subject gives express consent to process the data, and that processing is necessary to fulfill the legitimate interests of the controller or of the third party, except when data subject’s fundamental rights prevail to process personal and sensitive data collected from you.
