If you fill out the Contact Form available on the website, the following personal data will be requested:  name, email address, phone number (required data), and mobile phone number (optional data).

  • Provision of collection services of animal by-products and used cooking oils

  • Management of business relationships;

  • Human Resources selection and recruitment


Data processing for the above purposes will happen after your consent, except in cases where there is another cause of legitimacy for such processing, and, therefore, the data subject's consent is not required.



It is advised that Users' personal data may be communicated to the above-identified co-responsible entities of the ETSA Group, who undertake to process such data solely and exclusively for the above-mentioned purposes.

ETSA may also disclose personal data to third parties provided that it has unambiguously obtained the Users' consent or when:

(ii)  the communication is carried out to protect the Users' vital interests or any other legitimate purpose provided by law.



Processing of User data may be carried out by a suitable service provider hired by ETSA. Such service provider will process data only for the purposes established by ETSA, and following its precise instructions, strictly complying with the legal norms on protection of personal data, information security, and other applicable legislation.



ETSA will process User data in its entirety within the territory of the European Union, and therefore does not foresee any international transfer of data.



All personal data collected shall be stored in such a way that they can be identified only for the period of time required to carry out the purposes of its collection or further processing, after which they shall be definitively deleted.



Users may - at any time and free of any charge - exercise his or her rights to access, update, rectify or delete, oppose, limit and request the portability of his/her personal data, through the Contact Form shown on the Website or by a written request to the email: ou para a morada: Rua Padre Adriano, 61 - 2660-119 Olivais do Machio, St.º Antão do Tojal, Loures, Portugal.

Therefore, should the User not provide ETSA with such data, the latter will not be able to fulfil that request.



ETSA may create user profiles to allow the adoption of automated decisions based on personal, economic and / or financial characteristics. In such cases, Users have the right to obtain human intervention in the decision, to express their opinion, and to challenge the decision adopted by ETSA.



ETSA makes every effort to protect Users' personal data against unauthorized access through the Internet. For such purpose, it uses security systems, rules and other procedures, in order to ensure the protection of Users' personal data, as well as to prevent unauthorized access to such data, its improper use, or its disclosure, loss or destruction.

However, it is the Users responsibility to ensure and assure that the computer he/she is using is properly protected from harmful software, computer viruses and worms. In addition, Users should be aware that without the adoption of appropriate security measures (for example, safe browser settings, updated antivirus software, security software, and non-use of software of dubious origin), the risk of personal data and passwords being accessed by third parties without authorization is aggravated.

It should be noted that where data collection takes place in open networks - such as the Internet - Users' data might be unsafely routed, with the risk of being seen and used by unauthorized third parties.




ETSA reserves the right - at any time, without prior notice and with immediate effect - to change, add or revoke, partially or totally, this Privacy Policy.

Any changes will be immediately published on this same webpage, so we advise regular consultation of this webpage to remain up-to-date.
