Privacy Policy


Your privacy matters to us.

The Portuguese Professional Football League (LIGA PORTUGAL), a non-profit collective corporation and of public utility, is committed to protecting the users' personal data. Personal data is collected and processed, in accordance with the Personal Data Protection legislation, namely Regulation (EU)2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of April 27, 2016 (hereinafter referred to as RGPD), in rule no. 58/2019 of August 8, 2019 (national implementing law concerning the GDPR), and other applicable legislation.

It is LIGA PORTUGAL and its affiliates' policy to respect the users' preferences regarding the treatment of Personal Data, respecting their privacy, regarding any information that may be collected by LIGA PORTUGAL, and on the websites, we own and/or operate.

This policy is applicable to all information collected from all the LIGA PORTUGAL websites that link or refer to this Policy (such as websites, software applications, social networks and electronic messages), as well as offline or online marketing and sales activities (which are briefly framed as, "Communication Channels").

Some of the definitions and terms used in this document are taken from Articles 4 and 5 of the Regulation (EU)2016/679.


We ask for personal information only when we really need it to provide you with a service or deliver an experience. We do this through fair and legal means, with your prior agreement and consent. We also inform you, why we are collecting the information, and how it will be used.

We only retain the information collected for as long as necessary to provide the requested service or experience. When we store data, we protect it through appropriate technical and organisational measures to prevent loss and/or theft as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

The data we collect is used to process your request, manage your account and, if you agree, email you information about other products, services or experiences we think may be of interest to you.

Also, we use the information collected on the websites to customise your next visits.


Under the GDPR, the scope of personal data includes any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person, directly or indirectly, such as name, address, e-mail address, age, marital status, identification number, location data, electronic identifiers, specific physical, genetic, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.


The GDPR defines a Data Subject as any natural person who is identified or identifiable, for example, through a name, an identification number, location data, physical or physiological features, etc.

Data subjects have the rights of information, access, rectification, erasure, limitation, portability, objection, no automated processing, and complaint.

The GDPR provides that minors under the age of 16 may not give their consent for data processing in online services (direct offer of information society services to children), but it is at the discretion of each Member State to determine whether young people aged between 13 and 16 may have access to online services.

As the basis for the lawfulness of data processing is consent (Art. 6(1)(a)), Art. 8 of the Regulation stipulates special considerations regarding consent in relation to the offering of services directly to children/minors. Here, it is assumed that the service is offered exclusively to the child; at a distance; has a monetary consideration and is not based on contract, but on consent. To this end, it has been established that processing is only lawful if minors are at least 16 years old.

In the case of children under 13 years of age, the provision of services will be subject to obtaining the consent of the holders of parental responsibilities of the child.

The National RGPD Enforcement Law (Law No. 58/2019 of August 8) provides for a minimum age of 13 years. LIGA PORTUGAL, as the Party Responsible for Treatment, will make appropriate efforts to ascertain the age, and will promote all efforts within its reach to verify if the consent was valid and effectively obtained. Otherwise, data processing will not be possible.


Under the GDPR the Controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria applicable to its appointment may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

LIGA PORTUGAL is responsible for the processing of personal data at its charge.


We do not share personal identification information publicly or with third parties except when required by law, or when duly established by contract with defined subcontractors, duly informing the data subjects.
