The handling of any personal data gathered by WE ARE FUTURE – TECH SOLUTIONS, Lda, or provided to them, are responsibility of the company WE ARE FUTURE – TECH SOLUTIONS, Lda, a public limited company, legal person no. 515315800, with registered office at address Avenida Miguel Bombarda, n.º 36, 5.º B, 1050-165 Lisbon, which contact data may be found later on this Privacy Policy (hereinafter referred to as “YTECH” or “we”).

B. How are my personal data gathered and what type of data are gathered

Please be aware that you are not forced to provide to YTECH your personal data that the company might request (being able to, at any time, exercise your right of opposition), but, if you choose not to do so, we might not be able to provide you our services, manage your application or answer to any question you might have.

YTECH may gather your personal data on many ways, namely when you subscribe our newsletter, send us spontaneous applications, register yourself on University’s employment platforms, job fairs, references of collaborators or ex-collaborators, workshops and partnerships aimed to be contacted by YTECH, enter a contract with us (work, provision of services or other), fill your customer’s form or communicate with our customer support teams.

If you are a candidate, aiming to identify and find the best job opportunities and/or possible services adapted to you, we have to handle certain information about you. We only request data that will be relevant to us, such as your name, age, contact data, information on training, employment history, emergency contact, immigration status, financial information (in case we need to verify the financial context) and social security number (and, obviously, you may opt to share with us other relevant information). When it is appropriate, and accordingly to the law, we may also gather diverse information or data on any criminal convictions.

If you are a YTECH customer, we need to gather and use information about you or about the people of your company in the scope of our provision of services, in order to provide to you a service as complete as possible and so that our contractual relationship may correctly progress. As so, in this scope, we may request some personal data such as your name, email address, position and contact number of relevant employees for the provision of services.

If you’re a supplier, we need a small amount of information concerning your personal data, in order to ensure that everything works correctly. We need the contact data of certain people of your company, so we can communicate with you, as well as other information, such as your bank data so we can pay you for the services provided (if that is part of the contractual provisions entered between us). We may also hold information that someone on your company has chosen to share with us.

When we talk about suppliers, we aim to include any companies (including traders working individually) and atypical service providers, such as independent contractors and freelance workers, which provide services to YTECH. Under certain circumstances, YTECH shall subcontract the services provided to customers to third-party suppliers that perform their services on behalf of YTECH. In this context, the suppliers which are traders working individually, freelance workers or supplier’s collaborators shall be treated as candidates for the purposes of data protection. Be aware that, in this context, YTECH demands that the suppliers inform their collaborators of the relevant parts of this Privacy Policy (namely the sections aimed for the candidates).

Certain personal data categories, such as the ones which reveal the racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophic beliefs or the union membership, the genetic data, the biometric data to unquestionably identify a person, the data concerning health, sexual life or sexual orientation, are classified as “special categories of personal data” and benefit from an additional protection under the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). YTECH limits, as much as possible, the circumstances in which it gathers and handles these special categories of data, only doing so when your consent has been given.

In order to give our users a greater speed and customization of the services provided by YTECH, this company shall resort to a browser operation called “cookies”, which allows YTECH to customize your services and website accordingly to your interests and needs, enabling the optimization of your future activities and experience on the YTECH website.
