The application of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016), on May 25th, 2018, has established new rules on protection, processing, and free movement of personal data of natural persons.

Through this policy, all partners of the BeauCoup Project pledge their commitment and determination to ensure the safeguard and protection of personal data regarding activities carried out in the framework of the BeauCoup Project, as well as the use arising from this website.

This policy also aims to provide information on the principles, rules and good practices that the BeauCoup Project’s partners observe in processing the personal data entrusted to it, in accordance with the General Regulation on Data Protection (GDPR) and other applicable legislation, and on the means that data subjects have at their disposal to exercise their rights.


Each partner of the BeauCoup Project is individually responsible for processing the personal data arising from the activities carried out locally (e.g.: Workshops), covering the respective participants, referred to as “data subjects” as provided for in the GDPR.

Regarding this website, Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML) is in charge of its design and management and, therefore, assumes responsibility for the processing of personal data gathered exclusively through the project’s website, such as managing cookies and communications.

None of the personal data is reused for other purposes nor processed for direct marketing purposes unless specifically indicated in a privacy notice for this specific processing operation.

Under certain conditions outlined in law, personal data may be disclosed to third parties (such as law enforcement authorities), if necessary and proportionate for lawful and specific purposes.

The period for which personal data are stored is fixed by law or regulation or, in the absence of this, the period necessary for the pursuit of the purpose for which they were collected and processed, after which time the personal data shall be deleted. Personal data may be kept for a longer period for historical or scientific purposes with the appropriate safeguards in place.

More information about how personal data is processed can be obtained with each partner, including when it is collected through this website.
