The “Marco Civil” and the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD)
In Complianz 5.4 we will add full support for the Civil Rights Framework for the Internet (the “Marco Civil”) and the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD), which came into force in 2020.
The Cookiebanner in Complianz Premium automatically recognizes Brazilian visitors and will ask for their consent if the WordPress website is going to set non-functional cookies. For non-intrusive statistics (such as Google Analytics configured in a privacy-friendly way) it is not necessary to ask for consent.
- It is necessary to carry out studies by a research body, ensuring, whenever possible, the anonymization of personal data.
- It is necessary for the regular exercise of rights in judicial, administrative, or arbitration proceedings.
- It is necessary for the protection of health, exclusively, in a procedure performed by health professionals, health services, or health authorities.
- It is necessary for credit protection
We also made some changes to our other documents, such as the Data Protection Agreement, and the Privacy Statement for Children. Questions specific to Brazil are labeled with the Brazilian flag.
