The organisation responsible for data processing is the Lisbon Architecture Triennale.


The Lisbon Architecture Triennale processes the personal data it collects in the context of the business and promotional relationship of its cultural activity, established with visitors and participants, whilst fulfilling the applicable legal and regulatory obligations.


In the data processing it carries out, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale observes the principles of lawfulness, fairness and transparency; purpose limitation; data minimisation; accuracy; storage limitation; integrity, confidentiality and accountability.


The data processing that the Lisbon Architecture Triennale carries out in the course of its activities is framed within defined, clear and specific purposes, guaranteeing the duty of information to the data subjects.
This processing is based on:

  • the fulfilment of legal obligations;
  • the context of the execution of contracts in which the data subjects are a party or in pre-contractual proceedings on request;
  • the pursuit of the Lisbon Architecture Triennale’s legitimate interests;
  • the consent of the data subject.


In pursuing its activities, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale may make use of third parties – Processors – to provide certain services, which may involve access, by these third parties, to personal data belonging to the data subject. The Lisbon Architecture Triennale assures that, in these circumstances, suitable technical and organisational measures are adopted in order to ensure that subcontracted entities satisfy the applicable legal requirements and offer appropriate guarantees in terms of data protection.


The acceptance on behalf of the data subjects that their data may be processed or used under permission is always of a revocable nature, without any retroactive effects. The Lisbon Architecture Triennale guarantees the data subject, on a permanent basis, all rights resulting from the personal data protection legislation, including rights of access, updating, rectification, the right to be forgotten, to restriction of processing or erasure of personal data and, where applicable, the right to data portability.
The data subject can, at any time, revoke, reduce or limit the scope of any consent previously given, without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing previously carried out.
Visitors and participants also have the right to lodge a complaint with Comissão Nacional de Protecção de Dados (National Data Protection Commission).
