How We Use Information
The Provider reserves a limited right to access the data in order to proactively analyse the system architecture, data models and infrastructure resources in order to offer the best possible service This includes, for example, analysis of slow-running database queries, predicting the growth rate of data (in order to allocate resources ahead of time), and analysis of the data contents and format in order to choose the most performant and fitting data models. It is unavoidable that in order to be able to provide the best possible service, the Provider must be able to understand the data, as well as emergent trends in the data. Such analysis is done, whenever practical, in an anonymised manner and with only the above, purely technical or service-oriented purposes in mind.
We take all the necessary technical and organisational measures to protect the confidentiality and security of your information from unauthorised access or against loss, misuse or alteration by third parties. We make good faith efforts to store the information collected on the Services in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public and is only accessible by authorised employees, agents or contractors and we verify the identities of registered users before they can access personal information stored about them. We store information on servers located in Portugal and may store information on servers and equipment in other countries within the European Union.
