Privacy policy, Cookies and Data Protection

Rangel welcomes your visit to our website and your interest in our company and our products and services. For us, it is very important to ensure the privacy and protection of your personal data during the collection and processing thereof, as well as in the business relationship.

Hereunder we explain what information is collected by Rangel when you visit/use our website and how this information is used.

  • Data Controller

    • Rangel Invest-Investimentos Logísticos, S.A. and all affiliated companies that are part of the Rangel Group, under the commercial designation Rangel Logistics Solutions.

  • Personal Data

    • Personal data means specific information about personal or factual characteristics related to an individual that can be identified from such data. This includes information such as name, address, telephone number and date of birth.

      Information that does not allow identification of the individual or that cannot be directly linked to his/her identity is not considered personal data.

      Any Rangel customer account holder is required to provide certain personal information to ensure that we clearly identity all participants in the shipping process and to exchange important information with them (for example, when to drop an item at the collection post).

      This data is requested at the time of customer registration and may include surname, name, e-mail address and/or mobile phone number and date of birth (to ensure the user is not a minor). The user may also have the option to enable messaging services as additional notification channels, including SMS. The user will also be asked about the type of information and what notifications we are allowed to send.

  • Personal data collection and processing

    • Rangel is committed to preserving the privacy of its website users. When they visit our Web pages, our Web servers always keep the following data temporarily and only for security and/or statistical purposes: the connection data of the computer that is connecting to our website, a list of the Web pages that the user visited in our website, the date and duration of the visit, identification data of the type of browser and operating system used, as well as the website through which the user accessed our website. Additional personal information, such as the name, address, telephone number or e-mail address are not collected unless the user provides this information voluntarily, for example, by completing an online contact form as part of a registration, query, contract fulfilment or request for information.

      Certain areas of Rangel's websites, including, but not limited to, the customer account, require a registration or password to access it. Information obtained from the users in these areas may also be used by Rangel for marketing purposes, within the limits of the national legislation.

      In cases where we have your consent or when permitted under applicable law, we may send you marketing or commercial communications (which may include e-mails, text messages or telephone calls) related to services that we believe are relevant to the customer. We may also use information related to service provision to send you more relevant messages.

      Certain shipment data is provided to the authorities of the country of transit or destination for customs clearance or for tax settlement or for security screening, as required by the laws of the relevant country. The information normally provided includes: name and address of the consignor, name and address of the consignee, description of the goods, number of pieces, weight and value of the shipment.
  • Use and transmission of personal data

    • We use the personal data you have provided us exclusively for the technical administration of the Web pages and to respond to your requests or to fulfil a contract with you. On the other hand, it helps us to improve the services we offer you, to make the content and services of our website easier to use and more suitable for the customer.

      In addition, we only use this data for product-related queries and marketing-related purposes if previously permitted by you, if stipulated by legal regulations or if you have not raised any objections.

      Rangel does not share, sell, transfer or otherwise disclose customer personal data to third parties and will not do so in the future unless required by law, required by the contract or if the customer has given his/her express consent to do so. For example, it may be necessary to transmit the address or order data to our subcontractors when ordering products.

      The compliance with customer requests and the execution of contracted services may require the sharing of data with subcontractors.

      The processing of shared data in the situations described above is always carried out in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy and Data Protection Policy, as well as any other applicable security and confidentiality measures.

  • Data Privacy Policy

    • What is Data Privacy Policy?

      Rangel Data Privacy Policy (RangelDPP) is a corporate standard that addresses the applicable data protection standards within the company and has been designed to comply with legal data protection requirements. The company is obliged to comply with this policy in the collection and processing of personal data from customers, employees, shareholders and suppliers.

      Rangel, in addition to its commitment to continuous improvement of its services, control and management of risks related to cyber security and privacy of information, is further committed to implement good practices, knowledge and tools to create value and comply with the needs of the citizens.

      It therefore complies with the GDPR principles, such as the "limitation of processing” of personal data, by establishing within its organizations a rule of "data minimisation” (minimisation of data collected in relation to the purposes of the processing) and effective accountability of the controller (principle of accountability).

      Rangel takes into account the risks of privacy since the moment of design of a given project, rather than considering such risks at a later stage – privacy by default and privacy by design.

      Personal data: the rights of the data subject

      The right of correction or update of personal data may be exercised by the Customer at any moment using the form available in our website. Rangel asks its customers to include their name, address, date of birth and e-mail address when they contact us, as this helps Rangel ensure that it accepts corrections and updates requested by the right person. Rangel further asks its customers, in case of changes in personal data, to communicate such changes promptly using the same channel.

      Rangel keeps data for as long as it is reasonably necessary for fulfilling the contract and always in compliance with applicable law.

      If the customer wishes to update, delete, access, object to processing, file a complaint, request processing limitation, request portability or review any possible automated decision regarding his/her data, Rangel requests the customer to submit such request in writing to or the customer may exercise his/her right using the form provided in the Data Protection area of our website.

      If the customer has subscribed any service to receive marketing communications, he/she may cancel the subscription at any time using the removal link indicated in the e-mail received or using the form provided in the Data Protection area in our website.

  • How to file a complaint

    • If the customer wishes to file a complaint or exercise his/her right to complaint regarding any aspect of the personal data or this privacy and data protection policy, the customer should contact: or exercise his/her right using the form provided in the Data Protection in our website.

      If the customer is not satisfied with the results of the complaint, he/she further has the right to submit the case to the National Data Protection Committee.

  • Changes to this privacy policy

    • Rangel aims at reaching high standards and therefore its policies and procedures are constantly being reviewed. Rangel may change this privacy policy whenever deemed adequate and necessary. Therefore, it recommends periodical visits to this page to read and assess the most recent version.
  • GDPR Glossary

    • GDPR: General Data Protection Regulation

      Personal Data: any information, regardless of the relevant medium, including sound and image, related to an identified or identifiable natural person ("Data Subject"); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

      Personal Data Processing (processing): any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, comparison or alignment, as well as restriction, erasure or destruction.

      Data Controller: the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing of personal data.

      Data Processor: the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.

      Third-party: a natural or legal person, public authority, service or body other than the Data Subject, the Controller, the Data Processor and other persons under the direct authority of the Controller or Processor, that is authorised to process personal data.

      Recipient: the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body to which personal data is disclosed, whether being a third-party or not.

      Data Subject Consent: any freely given specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the Data Subject's wishes by which he/she accepts, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, the processing of personal data related to him/her.

      Privacy by design: this means that the privacy risk is taken into account as of the design of a new product or service rather than considering the privacy issues on a later stage. This implies carefully assessing and implementing the proper technical and organizational procedures and measures since the beginning to ensure that the processing is compliant with the GDPR and protects the rights of the data subjects involved.

      Privacy by default: this means ensuring that the organization has implemented the necessary mechanisms to guarantee that, by default, only the necessary amount of personal data required for each task will be collected, used and stored. This obligation applies to any processing extension, to the storage period and to access. These measures ensure that personal data are not provided without human intervention to an undetermined number of individuals.

      Limitation of Processing: the inclusion of a mark in the personal data stored with the purpose of limiting its processing in the future.

      Data Minimisation: this means that gathered data must be limited to what is necessary considering the purposes for which they are processed.
