Specific information about the personal data collected and the details of the purposes for each process can be found in the privacy notices of each RNP service and event, which can be found on their respective pages. Below you can find the privacy notices of our main services:

What is sensitive data?

By default, we do not collect or process personal data related to racial or ethnic origin, religious conviction, political opinion, union or party affiliation or religious, philosophical or political organization, data referring to health or sex life.

In specific and determined cases where RNP collects or processes, in some way, sensitive personal data, we will request your prior and express consent for any processing that is voluntary or, in cases where there is a regulatory need, we will inform you in detail about all the applicable legal bases.

Who do we share your data with?

By default, we do not share personal data related to the use of our services with other organizations for commercial purposes.

Some personal data, for reasons of support and operation of our services and platforms – such as, for example, storing information, sending communications, among others – may be processed by partners and suppliers in Brazil or abroad. We contractually guarantee that they follow our security and confidentiality standards.

In events held by RNP, we may also share your exclusively contact data with our partners and sponsors for the purpose of promotional actions, marketing and offer of products and services relevant to your profile.

We will guarantee you total control over the receipt of these communications, assuring you, whenever requested, of the interruption of sharing and the removal of your contacts from our databases.

How long do we store your data?

We are committed to storing personal data for the time strictly necessary to fulfill the defined purposes, but also not failing to comply with the legal and regulatory determinations to which RNP is subject.

The period of storage of this information may vary according to the service used and the characteristics of each case. For example, the data collected from the RNP System service registration forms may be kept during the evaluation process and, in case of approval, during the accession term.

The personal contact data processed by RNP to solve doubts and queries are stored even after the requester's service has been completed, for history and follow-up purposes.

In the case of products and services provided by RNP and to which the Institutions adhere, processed data are stored for the duration of their provision and will be deleted when accession is discontinued, or in the event that you request the deletion of these data - with the exception of those data necessary for the fulfillment of obligations, such as in cases where it is necessary to provide data to public authorities.

More information about the period and form of sharing personal data in RNP's products and services can be found in the respective Privacy Terms.

How do we protect your data?

The security of your personal data under our responsibility is a priority. All personal data is processed in accordance with our information security rules, which follow the most rigorous technical standards, such as ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 27000. We have a highly specialized team in information security, the Security Incident Service Center– CAIS.

Among other attributions, our team is responsible for monitoring the security of our products and services, acting in cases of security incidents, defining and executing preventive security controls, including the evaluation of all technology suppliers contracted by RNP, in order to verify compliance with our standards of security controls, both in the provision of technology solutions and in access to personal data under our responsibility in the development of the services for which they were contracted.

Whenever we identify the possibility of a risk due to the processing of your personal data, RNP will prepare an impact report on the protection of personal data, which will contain all the technical and administrative measures taken to prevent and minimize the occurrence and the impact of a possible incident due to the processing activity. Although we do not have 100% control over factors that may compromise data security at any time, such as, for example, unauthorized use of your credentials, or possible hardware and software failures, or during data transmission over the Internet, we are committed to always using our best efforts to ensure that our products and services operate with the highest level of security and without interference, guaranteeing, in cases of interruptions caused by errors or failures, return to normality in the shortest possible time. Finally, we will always keep you informed in cases of security incidents involving your personal data, especially those that may generate risks or significant damage.

Privacy in the development of products and services

We are committed to putting the protection of your privacy at the center of the entire lifecycle of developing new products and services – as well as improving existing services.

This means that we ensure that our tools and portals can be used safely and with a minimum privacy standard applied, without any additional or extensive processing of your personal data, according to the specific purposes of each service and, in the face of your consent, to give you all the information necessary for your real freedom of choice and your complete knowledge about the use of your data.
