Thank you for visiting the Virtuose Technologies website and reviewing our privacy policy (hereinafter the Policy).

By browsing our website or using our systems or services, you acknowledge that you have read and understood this policy and consent to the processing of your data and personal information in accordance with it, as applicable.

Objectives: Respect for privacy and protection of personal data in accordance with the law.

  1. Consent: Requirement of explicit or implicit consent for the collection of personal data.

Respect for privacy and protection of personal data in accordance with the law. 

Privacy respect and the protection of personal information are essential to us. Through this Policy, we aim to protect them in accordance with applicable laws.

To ensure this protection, Virtuose Technologies commits to collect, process, and share information that can identify an individual only when the individual has consented, unless permitted or required by law, in which case your consent will not be necessary.

The Policy aims to inform users of the reasons and how Virtuose Technologies, or anyone acting on its behalf, will collect and use their personal information. It is designed to be in clear language to ensure informed consent from users.

For the purposes of this Policy, "personal information" refers to any information about an identifiable person. To the extent possible, we will anonymize, pseudonymize, and/or aggregate this information so that it no longer identifies a person.



Need for explicit or implicit consent for the collection of personal data. Methods of obtaining consent.


We commit to obtaining consent before collecting an individual's personal information. Consent can be explicit or implicit and may be provided directly by the person or by their authorized representative.

We prioritize obtaining explicit consent, whether verbally, electronically, or in writing. However, implicit consent can reasonably be inferred from a person's action or inaction. For example, providing a name and address to receive a publication or a name and phone number to get a response to a question is considered implicit consent to the collection of information containing personal information. To determine the appropriate type of consent, we consider the sensitivity of the personal information involved, the purposes for which it is collected, and the reasonable expectations of a person in a similar situation.

If we want to use personal information for a new purpose, we will describe the intended use and seek consent again.

It is not always possible, especially in the context of a request from the government, to obtain a person's consent to collect, use, or disclose their personal information. We commit to never disclose this type of information except in accordance with this Policy, unless required or permitted by law.

Personal Information Collected

Varies depending on the interaction context, with special attention to sensitive data.


Virtuose Technologies may collect personal information in various forms but will do so only through lawful means and for purposes that have been disclosed to you, as described in this Policy, or as permitted or required by law.

The personal information collected, as well as its sensitivity, may vary depending on the context of the interactions between you and Virtuose Technologies. Therefore, it is our priority to inform you about the nature of the personal information we use.

Other examples of interaction data we collect include :

Use of Data 

Operation and Improvement of Services, Customer Support, Security, and Legal Compliance.


Providing Products and Services: Data is used to operate products and services and provide users with rich and interactive experiences.

Product and/or Service Improvement: Data is employed to enhance products, including the addition of new features or capabilities (such as error reporting when purchasing a ticket or consulting an online program).

Product and/or Service Development: Data is utilized in the development of new products. For instance, personal information is anonymized or pseudonymized to better understand customer needs.

Customer Support: Data is used to diagnose and resolve issues related to products and services, restore access to personal accounts, and provide other support and assistance services.

Contributing to Security and Issue Resolution: Data contributes to securing and resolving issues with products and services. This includes ensuring the security of services, detecting malicious programs and activities, addressing performance and compatibility issues, and informing customers of product and service updates. Automated systems may be used to detect security issues.

Security: Data is employed to protect the security of products and customers. Security features may prevent the operation of malicious software, inform users of malware detection on their devices, or use video surveillance to ensure public safety during events.

Protection of Rights and Property: Data is used to detect and prevent fraud, resolve disputes, enforce contracts, and protect property. Automated processes may be used to prevent activities that violate rights.

Legal Compliance: Data is processed to comply with the law. For example, age information is used to ensure compliance with privacy obligations for children or to verify that customers meet the recommended age for the audience. Contact details and identifiers may be processed to assist customers in exercising their data protection rights.

Research: Data is used for research, including scientific and public interest purposes, where permitted by law.

Virtuose Technologies places the utmost importance on the security of personal information and commits to processing it according to industry standards, solely for the purposes for which it is collected, as described in this policy or in specific notices. However, absolute safeguarding of this information is impossible due to inherent security limits in Internet transmission. Therefore, information transmitted to us is ultimately at the user's own risk.


Access and Control

Rights to verify and correct personal data, with security measures for data protection.


Virtuose Technologies ensures that all personal information in its possession is as accurate, current, and complete as necessary for the purposes for which it is used.

You have the right to request access to your personal information for verification purposes and to request correction if it is inaccurate. If you believe that your personal information is inaccurate or if you want access to your personal information, you can make a request using the contact information provided at the end of this Policy.

To the best of our ability, we will provide you with timely access to your personal information. However, for security reasons, we may need to verify your identity.

Moreover, there may be circumstances where we cannot provide you with access to your personal information. In particular, when access may lead to the disclosure of another person's personal information and that person refuses to consent to such disclosure or when legal restrictions apply. If such a situation arises, we will inform you of the reason why we cannot provide you with access to your personal information.

If your request concerns data appearing on third-party websites or platforms, please contact these third parties directly.


Sharing with Third Parties

  • For Legal Reasons: We transmit personal information outside our company if access to it is necessary to comply with current laws and regulations.

Data Retention

The period varies based on the nature and utility of the data, with security measures during retention.


Virtuose Technologies retains the collected data for different periods, depending on their nature and utility in offering our products and services. During the retention period, Virtuose Technologies takes physical and technical measures to ensure the security of data containing personal information.

The main places where personal information is stored are the cities where Virtuose Technologies has offices or facilities and the cities where HubSpot has servers containing the collected data.

Personal information may be stored outside the country in which you live if a third-party provider or another entity to whom we disclose personal information in accordance with this Policy is located outside the country. In such cases, personal information may be subject to the local laws of the countries or territories where the information is collected, used, disclosed, or stored, and the government authorities and law enforcement authorities of those countries or territories may have access to it.
