(hereinafter referred to as MCM), legal person no. 500911371, with registered office at Rua da Quinta de Santa Maria, no. 150, Maximinos, 4700-244 Braga, Portugal. By providing personal data on the MCM website, the visitor is explicitly consenting to their use for the purpose of executing their requests.

Data collection

We only collect personally identifiable information that is specifically and voluntarily provided by visitors to the MCM website. MCM receives limited identifying information such as name, telephone number, email address, and message from website visitors. Generally, identifying information is collected for:

- Request for additional information

- Sending CVs

Demographic information, including gender and occupation, is not usually required, but may be submitted when a visitor responds to an online job application. It is MCM's policy to limit the collection of information so that it is only sufficient to satisfy the visitor's requests. In cases where non-mandatory information is requested, the website visitor will be notified of this situation at the time of data collection.

Visitors will also be able to send emails through the website. Each message will contain the user's name and email address, as well as additional information that the user considers important to include in the message. Since our website is a recruitment tool, a visit to our website may also result in the sending of a user's resume to an MCM recipient.

Outside the cases provided for by law, the processing of personal data relating to philosophical or political beliefs, party or union affiliation, religious faith, private life and racial or ethnic origin, as well as the processing of data relating to health and sex life, is prohibited, including genetic data. At no time is the collection of sensitive data requested or encouraged. If the user voluntarily provides them, MCM will not be held responsible for their treatment under this policy.

Use of personal data

A user can provide personal information in the following examples:

- Request for publications

- Sending résumés or information on previous jobs

- Contact our team for additional information

The information obtained by the website is used exclusively for the purposes set out at the time this information is collected. This information is not shared with other entities or third parties for other purposes unless the time of collection results otherwise. If there is a need to share this information for other purposes, consent will be previously requested from the holder.

MCM uses its best efforts to avoid excessive or irrelevant data collection.

Except for the email lists described above, where visitors explicitly choose to receive specific MCM advertising or other materials, MCM will not use the personal data collected on our websites to promote unsolicited marketing activities.

Cookies and file logging

Cookies may be used on some pages of our website. 'Cookies' are small text files located on your hard drive that enable us to provide you with a more personalized experience on the website. For example, a cookie can be used to store registration information in an area of the website so that the user does not have to provide it again on your next visit to this area. It is MCM's policy to use cookies to facilitate visitors' navigation on our website, as well as to aid efficient registration procedures.

If the use of cookies worries you, many browsers allow you to reject them. In most cases, a visitor can refuse a cookie and continue browsing websites.

In order to manage our website, we may anonymously record information on our operating systems, identifying categories of visitors by items such as domains or browser types. These statistics are jointly communicated to our Web Administrator. In this way, we ensure that our website provides the best web experience for visitors and is an effective information resource.

Third parties

It is MCM's policy to disclose information to third parties only in the following circumstances:

- When required by law through court notice, search warrant or other permissible legal procedure

- When explicitly requested by the holder

- When necessary for the delivery of publications or reference materials required by the holder

Some MCM publications are listed on search engines to make it easier for visitors to access the website. Visitors can search for MCM content and then click a link to access the MCM website.

The MCM website does not store or collect personally identifiable information for purposes of disclosure or sale to third parties for the purposes of consumer marketing or sending emails on behalf of third parties.

Links to third parties

There are several places on the web that point to MCM's website that may access other websites that do not operate under MCM's privacy practices. Whenever you access other websites, MCM's privacy practices and policies no longer apply. We advise visitors to review all websites' privacy policies before providing any personally identifiable information.

Data storage

There is information we receive that is not stored. Visitors' contacts (such as information taken from the registration of access to certain areas on the website) will be saved for as long as necessary to respond to requests or until a user requests the deletion of that information. Information from mailing lists, comment boxes and emails is only stored for a reasonable period of time in order to facilitate visitor requests. Resumes are only eliminated when they are no longer under consideration, or when they are considered out of date by our Human Resources department.

It is our policy not to request registration from visitors to access areas of the MCM website.

The personally identifiable information provided to MCM through its website is voluntarily provided by visitors. If you wish to unsubscribe from email lists or any registrations, instructions can be found in the appropriate area of the website or in communications to our visitors.


All visitors have the right to change the personal data they have submitted via the

MCM website.

When requested, MCM will delete the identification information from the current systems.

Whenever MCM stores identifying information, it assumes the responsibility to keep a strict record of this information, once submitted by the visitor and after verification of the data by the visitor. However, MCM is not responsible for verifying the continued accuracy of the content of personal information. Whenever possible, if MCM becomes aware that certain information collected through the website is no longer accurate, MCM will introduce the appropriate corrections based on the update provided by the authenticated visitor.


MCM has implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures in order to protect personal data against loss, misuse, alteration or destruction.
