Privacy Policy

Website Visit Rio de Janeiro.city deeply respects its visitors and is committed to protecting their privacy on the Internet. Our commitment is to safeguard the personal information entrusted to us and to use this information only for the purposes for which they were intended.

This privacy policy describes the website’s privacy practices and explains the options provided on how visitor information is collected and used.

Emails, Newsletters, Forms and Direct Advertisement

We do not share emails provided by our website users in any way. We are against the spread of spam and against the spread of malware, because of the damage they cause to people of good faith and society in general. All users who agree to receive our newsletter do so of their own free will and will not receive advertising or third-party content unless they have indicated this additional acceptance through the appropriate field of the self-registration form (opt-in).

Cancellation of receipt of our newsletter can be requested at any time and will be fully respected.

Questions Submitted to the City Knowledgebase

All questions received at our City Knowledgebase have our deepest respect, as do the users who choose to share them with our team. Therefore, users who write to us and provide only the initials of their names will have only those initials published with their questions. Users who write to us and provide their names will have them published next to their questions. If a visitor wishes, they can have their names removed after the publication and have their initials used instead, and they can request the change at any time. There will never be a link between the name of the user, either published in full or only with the initials, and their email address. The website reserves the right to change the names provided by users if it deems it necessary to further protect their privacy, due to the type of question. In order to increase the ability to address the enquiries, the website may eventually accept partnerships with colleges and universities for their students to answer the questions under the supervision of their mentor professors, absolutely anonymously, without knowing the name or initials of the user, or their email, city, country or even any item described in the question that may result, even indirectly, in the identification of the user. In cases in which these details are essential to answer the question, the inquiry will be reserved for exclusive response from the Visit Rio de Janeiro.city team. All responses are checked and go through supervision before being sent to users and being published. The website reserves the right not to answer and not to publish all the answers, or to publish them together.

Sign-up Form

No registration information provided by any visitor or enquirer is shared under any circumstances, unless under court order.

Spam, Malware and Security

Spam refers to sending unsolicited emails to email addresses harvested illegally or misused (whose use has been authorized for a particular purpose, but that are then used for another). The term “malware” comes from “malicious software”. It’s a software designed to infiltrate a computer system illegally, in order to cause damage, changes or theft of information (whether confidential or not) [source: wikipedia.org]. We are against the spread of spam and against the spread of malware, because of the damage they cause to people of good faith and society in general. The website Visit Rio de Janeiro.city is protected in real-time, constantly and redundantly by several digital security services that audit our pages and third-party services contained within our domain. Please understand that security cannot be provided when the user leaves the domain Visit Rio de Janeiro.city.

Users are solely responsible for the confidentiality and appropriate use of their username and password created at registration. For safety, we cannot read the passwords registered on our systems.

We allow anonymous browsing on all areas of the website, except the internal and administrative ones, where it’s necessary to complete a registration form to ensure security for other users and the website itself. Therefore, if invited, the user must provide true, accurate, current and complete information, as well as keep such information updated.
