Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. It is the policy of the HorizonStone website to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect on the website HorizonStone, and other sites we own and operate.

We operate based on the Data Protection Law (Law 13.709/2018) that provides guarantees of privacy, confidentiality, retention, protection of fundamental rights of freedom, and the free development of a person’s personality. Additionally, we respect the Federal Constitution of the Federative Republic of Brazil, the Consumer Protection Code (Law 8.078/90), and the Internet Civil Rights Framework (Law 12.965/14).

We request personal information only when we truly need it to provide you with a service. We do so by fair and legal means, with your knowledge and consent. We also inform you why we are collecting it and how it will be used.

We make it clear why we are collecting information and how it will be used, as everything is done for proper general administration.

We only retain the collected information for as long as necessary to provide the requested service. When we store data, we protect it within commercially acceptable means under current legislation to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification.

We do not publicly share personally identifiable information or with third parties, except as required by a court order.

Our website may have links to external sites that are not operated by us. Therefore, we are not responsible for third-party damages. Please be aware that we have no control over the content and practices of third-party sites and cannot accept responsibility for their respective privacy policies.

As a consumer, you are free to refuse our request for personal information, understanding that we may not be able to provide some of the desired services.

The continued use of our site will be considered acceptance of our privacy and personal information practices. If you have any questions about how we handle user data and personal information, please contact us.

Our policy is constantly updated.

The data subject is hereby aware that the content of this Privacy Policy may be changed at the discretion of the HorizonStone website, regardless of notice or notification. In case of changes, the modifications take effect from the moment they are made available on the site.

The HorizonStone website is not responsible if you misuse or provide incorrect data, and it is excluded from any liability in this regard.
