In addition, we may use automated systems/processes and automated decision making (such as profiling) in certain processes, such as in the following example: if there is a change in our loyalty program regulations which affects a specific audience, such as blocking features for users who have not used our products and services for over a year, we may search our databases using automated criteria to compile a list of such users.
You may request a review of decisions made solely based on automated systems/processes, as well as request information regarding the criteria and procedures used, subject to Arkos Brasil trade and industry secrets. For the exercise of this right, please access the Privacy Portal.
Arkos Brasil operates in partnership with a number of other companies to offer its products and services. As such, we may share your Personal Data with these Arkos Brasil partner companies, always seeking to preserve your privacy to the fullest extent possible and, where possible, in an anonymized form. Here are examples of situations where we will share Personal Data and their respective purposes:
Our Partners and Suppliers: We have a number of partners and suppliers that we need to engage to operate our services and products, and some of them may handle some of the Personal Data we collect, such as technology and data hosting service providers, market research and data consulting companies, product carriers, and, payment processing, among others. We carefully evaluate our vendors and enter into contractual obligations with them regarding information security and protection of Personal Data, with the goal of minimizing risks to Data Subjects.
Marketplace Partners: When you shop on our e-commerce platform, it is possible that some products are marketed by merchant partners with whom we have a commercial relationship (Providers). In such cases, in order to process your orders, some of your Personal Data may be shared with the partners involved in your purchase for the purpose of fulfilling your orders.
Fraud Prevention Partners: To enable fraud detection, we may share some Personal Data indicated by our partners, which may even lead to the contracting of specific anti-fraud services.
Public Authorities or Official Bodies: Where we are under a legal or regulatory obligation that expressly requires us to provide Personal Information to a government agency or organization, we are required to do so. In addition, if a judge or an authority with legal or regulatory competence requires Arkos Brasil to share certain Personal Data in order, for example, to conduct an investigation, we are also required to share it. If Arkos Brasil believes that a particular order is abusive or excessive, we will always defend the privacy of the Personal Data Holders.
Although Arkos Brasil is based in Brazil and the products and services are intended for persons located in Brazil, and therefore Brazilian laws relating to the protection of Personal Data apply, the Personal Data that we collect may be transferred to countries located in the European Union, such as France and Spain.
Such transfers occur because of relationships with certain Arkos Brasil suppliers and business partners that may be located in these locations. In addition, our business partners may also send Personal Data received for the performance of the contracted services to sub-processors and/or third party operators with servers hosted in other countries.
However, such transfers only involve organizations that demonstrate that they are in compliance or in advanced process of compliance with applicable laws, and maintain a level of compliance similar to or even stricter than that provided for under applicable Brazilian law.
The Personal Data is yours, and Brazilian law guarantees You a number of rights related to it. We are committed to enforcing these rights and in this section we will explain how You can exercise these rights with Arkos Brazil:
1. Confirmation of Processing and Access to Data
Arkos Brazil allows you to confirm whether we hold Personal Data about You, as well as allows You to access such Personal Data. You can obtain this information directly on our Platforms, by entering your profile area, or request it through the Privacy Portal and, if found to exist data, we will send a file for your use, via e-mail informed by You or via physical letter, addressed free of charge to the address informed in your request.
2. Correction or Updating of Data

You may request (a) the anonymization of your Personal Data, so that they can no longer be linked to You and therefore cease to be Personal Data; (b) the blocking of your Personal Data, temporarily suspending the possibility for us to treat them for certain purposes; and (c) the deletion of your Personal Data, in which case we shall delete your Personal Data, without possibility of reversal.
At this first moment, Arkos Brasil will not perform the anonymization and/or blocking of the Personal Data, but for You not to have these rights injured, Arkos Brasil then offers the option to delete such data, thereby confirming their non-use, if so requested by You in the Privacy Portal.
It is worth noting, however, that it is possible that, even after your request, some Personal Data remain stored in our base (s), as a way to comply with legal obligations or for the protection of the activities of Arkos Brazil.

Whenever the holder exercises his rights, Arkos Brasil may request some additional information for the purpose of proving his identity, seeking to prevent fraud. We do this to ensure your security and privacy. Also, some requests may not be answered immediately, but Arkos Brasil undertakes to respond to all requests within a maximum period of thirty (30) working days and always in accordance with applicable law.
Personal Data is stored for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected, unless there is any other reason for its retention, such as compliance with any legal, regulatory, contractual or other obligations, provided that these are founded on a Legal Basis.
We always perform a technical analysis to determine the appropriate retention period for each type of Personal Data collected, considering its nature, the need for collection and the purpose for which it will be processed.
