In addition to the Táxis Esposende entities or ad-hoc partners in the country (responsible for Táxis Esposende operations ) mentioned in the section on data controllers and contacts (see Section 12), Táxis Esposende shares Consumer Personal Data with the following organisations:

Service Providers. These are external companies that Taxis Esposende uses for assistance and support in their business (e.g. order processing, payment processing, fraud detection and identity verification, website operation, market research companies, support services, promotions, website development, data analysis, SAC, etc.). Service providers and their selected staff are only permitted to access and use the Consumer's Personal Data in the name and on behalf of Taxis Esposende, for the specific tasks requested of them, based on instructions given by Taxis Esposende, and are obliged to keep the Consumer's Personal Data confidential and secure. When required by applicable legislation, the Consumer may obtain a list of the suppliers who process their Personal Data (see Section 12 to contact Taxis Esposende).

Credit reporting / collection agencies. To the extent permitted by applicable law, credit reporting and collection agencies are external companies which TAXI Esposende uses to assist in checking the creditworthiness of the Consumer (in particular for orders with invoice) or to collect outstanding invoices.

Third-party companies using Personal Data for their own marketing purposes. Taxis Esposende does not license or sell the Consumer's Personal Data to third-party companies for their own marketing purposes, except in situations where the Consumer has given consent. The identity of these third parties will be disclosed when the Consumer's consent is requested.

Third-party recipients to use Personal Data for legal reasons or due to merger/acquisition. Taxis Esposende will disclose the Consumer's Personal Data to third parties for legal reasons or in the context of an acquisition or merger (see Section 5 for details).



Taxis Esposende will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Data is only processed for the time necessary to fulfil the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. The criteria to determine the retention period of the Consumer's Personal Data are as follows:

a) Taxis Esposende will keep copies of Personal Data in a form that allows identification during: i. The duration of the relationship with the Consumer (e.g.: when the Consumer is included in a newsletter mailing list and has not unsubscribed from it); ii. The period in which the Personal Data is necessary in connection with the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy and Taxis Esposende has a legal basis for keeping it;

In addition,

b) The duration of: i) any applicable legal period (e.g.: period legally required for the Consumer to file a lawsuit) and ii) an additional period of 2 months after the period described above (so that Taxis Esposende can identify any Personal Data of a consumer who may file a lawsuit after the period under i), and

c) Additionally, if any relevant legal action is brought, Taxis Esposende may continue to process the consumer's Personal Data for the necessary period during the respective legal action.

During the situations described in paragraphs b) i) and b) ii), Taxis Esposende will restrict data processing to storage and the application of the respective security measures, unless such Personal Data needs to be reviewed or accessed following a complaint or any legal obligation.

After the periods mentioned in paragraphs a), b) and c) have been completed, Taxis Esposende will permanently delete or destroy the Consumer's Personal Data or, alternatively, may anonymise it.



Taxis Esposende uses various reasonable measures (described below) to keep your Personal Data confidential and secure. Please note, however, that such protections do not apply to information that the Consumer chooses to share in public areas, such as third-party social networks.

Persons Who May Access Consumer Personal Data. Consumer Personal Data will be processed by employees of Taxis Esposende or authorised service providers, accessing only the data strictly necessary, depending on the specific purposes for which the Consumer Personal Data was collected (for example, the team responsible for Consumer support matters will have access to the Consumer register).

Measures applied in operational environments. Taxis Esposende stores Consumer Personal Data in operational environments that use reasonable security measures to prevent unauthorised access. Taxis Esposende follows reasonable standards to protect Personal Data. The transmission of information over the internet is, unfortunately, not completely secure and, although Taxis Esposende makes every effort to protect the Consumer's Personal Data, it cannot guarantee the security of data during transmission via Taxis Esposende's websites or applications.

Measures the Consumer should take. It is important that the Consumer also takes an active role in keeping his or her Personal Data safe and secure. When signing up for an online account, the Consumer should choose a password that is difficult for others to guess and never reveal his or her password to anyone. The Consumer is responsible for any use of his/her account and for keeping this password confidential. In case the Consumer uses a shared or public computer, the Consumer should never select the option to remember his or her access data, e-mail or password and make sure to log out every time he or she leaves the computer. The Consumer should also make use of any privacy settings or controls that Taxis Esposende provides on its website or applications.

Transfer of the Consumer's Personal Data. The storage as well as the processing of the Consumer Personal Data described above may require that the Personal Data may ultimately be transferred/transmitted to and/or stored in a country other than the Consumer's country of residence, namely, but not limited to Germany or Switzerland.

Taxis Esposende may also transfer data to countries outside the European Economic Area (e.g. other Taxis Esposende companies), including to countries with different data protection rules from those applied in the European Union. For those situations, Taxis Esposende has concluded general contractual clauses approved by the European Commission (the consumer has the right to ask Taxis Esposende for a copy of those clauses, by contacting Taxis Esposende for that purpose) and/or will request the consumer's consent for those transfers, when legally applicable.



Access to personal data. The Consumer has the right to access, review and request a physical or electronic copy of the information held about him/her. The Consumer also has the right to request information about the origin of their Personal Data.

These rights can be exercised by sending us an e-mail or to Viana Táxis Diogo, Unipessoal, Lda, Rua André Padilha, 116 5º left back, 4900-002 Viana do Castelo, with proof of identification. If the request is sent by a person other than the Consumer, without providing proof that the request was legitimately made on their behalf, it will be rejected.

Please note that any identifying information provided to Taxis Esposende will only be treated in accordance with and to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Additional rights (e.g. modification, deletion of Personal Data). Where provided by law, the Consumer may (i) request the deletion, portability, correction or revision of their Personal Data; (ii) limit the use and disclosure of Personal Data; and (iv) revoke consent for any of Taxis Esposende's data processing activities.

Under the terms of the applicable legislation, Consumers also have the following rights relating to their Personal Data:

- The right to object, based on the Consumer's particular situations, to the use of Personal Data by Taxis Esposende, or its representatives; and

- The right to object to the processing of Personal Data by Taxis Esposende or its representatives for direct marketing purposes.

Please note that, under certain circumstances, Taxis Esposende may not delete your Personal Data without also deleting your user account. Taxis Esposende may be obliged to retain some of your Personal Data after you have requested deletion, in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations. Taxis Esposende may also be authorized by applicable laws to retain some of the Consumer's Personal Data to meet their commercial needs.

When available, the websites of Taxis Esposende have a dedicated tool through which the Consumer may review and edit the Personal Data provided. Please note that Taxis Esposende requires its registered Consumers to confirm their identity (e.g. login ID/email address, password) before they can access or make changes to their account information. This helps to prevent unauthorised access to the Consumer's account.

Taxis Esposende hopes to be able to satisfy any questions the Consumer may have about the way we handle their Personal Data. However, if the Consumer has unresolved questions/issues, they also have the right to complain to the relevant data protection authorities.



Taxis Esposende endeavours to give the Consumer choices regarding the Personal Data they provide. The following mechanisms provide the Consumer with the following control over their Personal Data:

Cookies/Similar Technologies. The Consumer manages their consent via (i) Taxis Esposende's consent management solution or (ii) their browser, to refuse all or some cookies/similar technologies, or to receive alerts when they are being used. See Section 4 above.

Advertising, marketing and promotions. The Consumer may consent to Taxis Esposende using their Personal Data to promote their products or services, the Consumer may indicate this by ticking the relevant checkbox(es) located on the registration form or by answering questions posed by commercial demonstrators, SAC staff. If the Consumer decides that they no longer wish to receive such communications, they may unsubscribe from marketing-related communications at any time by following the instructions provided in each communication. To opt out of receiving marketing communications sent by any means, including third-party social networks, the Consumer may disable them at any time by accessing the website/application or third-party social networks and adjusting their user preferences in their account profile, unchecking the relevant boxes or by calling the Taxi Esposende SAC. Please note that even if the Consumer opts out of receiving marketing communications, they will still receive operational communications from Taxis Esposende, such as order or other transaction confirmations, notifications about account activities (e.g. account confirmations, password changes, etc.) and other important non-marketing announcements.

Personalisation (offline and online): Where required by law, if the Consumer wishes their Personal Data to be used by Taxis Esposende to provide them with a personalised experience/advertising and targeted content, they can indicate this by ticking the relevant checkbox(es) on the registration form or by answering the question(s) presented by the commercial demonstrators or the SAC. If the Consumer decides that they no longer wish to benefit from such a situation, they may cancel the receipt at any time by accessing the website/application and adjusting their user preferences in their account profile, unchecking the relevant boxes or by calling the Viana Taxis SAC.

Interest-based advertising. Taxi Esposende has partnered with advertising networks and other ad serving providers ("Advertising Providers") who serve advertising on behalf of Taxi Esposende and on behalf of other non-affiliated companies on the internet. Some of these advertisements are tailored to the interests of the Consumer based on information collected on the websites of Taxis Esposende or non-affiliated websites over time. The Consumer may access the website to learn more about this type of advertising, as well as how to disable interest-based advertising practices, from companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance's ("DAA") self-regulatory program. In addition, you may opt out of such advertising in the mobile applications of companies participating in the DAA's AppChoices application by downloading the application from the iOS or Android shop. The Consumer may also stop the collection of precise location data from their mobile device through the location services settings on their mobile device.



Taxis Esposende will update this privacy policy if it changes the way it handles Consumer Personal Data. Taxis Esposende reserves the right to make changes to its practices and this Policy at any time; please check back regularly for any updates or changes to the Taxis Esposende policy.
