What are the measures adopted by Altice Portugal to ensure the security of your Personal Data?
Bearing in mind the concern and commitment shown by Altice Portugal in the defence of personal data, several security measures, of a technical and organizational nature, have been adopted in order to protect the personal data made available to it against its dissemination, loss, misuse , unauthorized alteration, processing or access, as well as against any other form of unlawful treatment.
In addition, third parties that, within the scope of provision of services, process the personal data of the customer/user on behalf of Altice Portugal, are obliged, in writing, to carry out appropriate technical and security measures that, at any moment, satisfy the requirements foreseen in the legislation in force and ensure the defence of the rights of the data subject (i.e. the protection of privacy and personal data of customers/users).
Therefore, on all Altice Portugal websites, personal data collection forms require encrypted browser sessions and all personal data transferred is securely stored in Altice Portugal's systems, which in turn are found in a data center belonging to Altice Portugal, covered by all the physical and logical security measures that Altice Portugal considers indispensable for the protection of personal data.
Notwithstanding the security measures adopted by Altice Portugal, Altice Portugal warns all those who surf the Internet that they must adopt additional security measures, namely, to ensure that they use a PC and browser which is up to date in terms of properly configured security patches, with active firewall, antivirus, and antispyware and that verify the authenticity of the websites they visit on the internet, avoiding websites whose reputation they do not trust.
