About the Application Form

In filling out and submitting our Application Form you are explicitly agreeing with the collecting, processing and using of the personal data introduced, by Associação Cultural Montes Claros (ACMC), in order to operate, promote and enhance its activity, as well as to contact you and provide you with information about Montes Claros University Hall of Residence and its correlated activities. Under the Portuguese Law for Personal Data Protection, through the email address: mc+dados@montesclaros.pt or any other contact provided by ACMC, you will always be able to revoke this consent and exercise the right to access, update, correct or eliminate your personal data.

ACMC, in the course of its activity, may hire services from third parties. If those services imply the access to personal data collected by ACMC, we will make all the efforts to ensure that those entities have a great reputation and high standards concerning data protection, what will be specifically settled in the contract to be established between ACMC and those third parties. Thus, any entity hired by ACMC will lead with the personal data on its behalf as if we were doing it, taking all the technical and organizational actions to protect personal data from accidental or illegal destruction, loss, change, diffusion, unauthorized access or any other illegal processing. In any case, ACMC will remain responsible for all the data you provide to us.

Our Application Form uses the service “Google Forms” of Google© Inc., established in the US. Its use binds the user to “Google Terms and Conditions”, which might be checked on https://policies.google.com/terms. The user firmly exempts Associação Cultural Montes Claros from any liability resulting from the default on those terms and conditions.
