In March 1992, in the city of São Tomé, the Heads of State and Government of the Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP) expressed their firm political will to establish multiform cooperative relations among themselves and with the European Union. In 2007, Timor-Leste joined this group, which became known as PALOP-TL.

g.1) Right of access: The data subject is entitled to obtain confirmation from the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme as to whether or not personal data concerning him/her are being processed and, if so, the right to access his/her personal data.
g.2) Right of rectification: the data subject has the right to request, at any time, the rectification of his/her personal data as well as the right to have his/her incomplete personal data completed, including by means of an additional declaration.
g.3 ) Right to deletion: the data subject has the right to obtain, from the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme, the deletion of his/her data where one of the following grounds applies: (1) the data subject’s data are no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were collected or processed; (2) the data subject withdraws the consent on which the data processing is based and there is no other legal ground for such processing; (3) the data subject objects to the processing under the right to object and there are no overriding legitimate interests justifying the processing; (4) where the data subject’s data are unlawfully processed; (5) where the data subject’s data must be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation to which the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme is subject.
Under the applicable legal terms, the Technical Assistance to the PALOP-TL/UE Cooperation Programme Coordination is under no obligation to erase the data subject’s data to the extent that the processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which the Technical Assistance to the PALOP-TL/UE Cooperation Programme Coordination is subject or for the purposes of the declaration, exercise or defence of a right of the Technical Assistance to the PALOP-TL/UE Cooperation Programme Coordination in a legal proceeding.
g.4 ) Right to limitation: the data subject has the right to obtain from the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme the limitation of the processing of their data if one of the following situations applies (limitation consists of inserting a mark in the personal data retained with the aim of limiting their processing in the future): (1) if you contest the accuracy of the personal data, for a period allowing the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme to verify their accuracy; (2) if the processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the data, requesting, in return, the limitation of their use; (3) if the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme no longer needs the data subject’s data for processing purposes, but they are required by the data subject for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending a right in a legal proceeding; (4) where the data subject has opposed the processing, until it is established that the legitimate interests of the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme outweigh those of the data subject.
When the data subject’s data are subject to limitation, they may, with the exception of storing them, only be processed with the data subject’s consent or for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending a right in a legal proceeding, defending the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of public interest that are legally foreseen.

The right of portability does not include inferred data or derived data, i.e. personal data that are generated by the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme as a consequence or result of the analysis of the data processed. The data subject has the right to have personal data transmitted directly between controllers, where technically possible. The exercise of the right to data portability applies without prejudice to the right to deletion of data.

The Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme shall cease the processing of the data subject’s data, unless it has compelling legitimate grounds for such processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending a right of the Technical Assistance for the Coordination of the PALOP-TL/EU Cooperation Programme in legal proceeding.
g.7) – Right to lodge complaints with the National Commission for Data Protection (CNPD) or other supervisory authority on the protection of personal data.

To exercise any of these rights the data subject may send an e-mail to the address of the person responsible for processing the data.
For the sole purpose of proof of his/her own identification (so that the data is not made available to anyone who is not the real owner of that data), the data subject will need to send a copy of his/her identity document so that the person responsible for the data processing can verify his/her identity.
If the data subject chooses to exercise his/her rights through a legal representative, he/she will need to identify him/herself as such and prove representation by means of a specific power of attorney.
