1. Introduction

Legaü (“we”, “us”, or “ our”) is the owner of this Cookies Policy and responsible for www.legau.pt, including any subdomains thereof (together hereinafter referred to as the “ Website”). We respect your privacy and we are fully committed to safeguarding your personal data under the Data Protection Legislation (as defined below).

This Cookies Policy explains how the Website deployes cookies and what options do you have to control them.

For the purpose of this Cookies Policy, the words “personal data”, “processor”, “processing” and “controller” shall be interpreted pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation, Law no. 58/2019, of 8 August, and any other laws, regulations and guidance from any competent data protection supervisory authority relating to the processing of personal data and privacy which apply in Portugal (together, the “Data Protection Legislation”).

2. What are cookies

Cookies are very small pieces of data, stored in text files on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are used mainly to “remember” you and your preferences. In many sites, they ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.

Cookies can be set by the website that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website that you are visiting (“third party cookies”).

Websites may also contain other similar technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted. For the purposes of this policy, we will use “cookies” as also including “web beacons” or “pixels”.
