MINASLIGAS, whilst dealing with the data, seeks to respect the best practices in terms of security and data protection, promoting actions and improving systems to provide for the protection of the data the Owners provide. All data is processed by MINASLIGAS in strict compliance with the applicable legislation, being treated in specific databases, created for each purpose.

If necessary, MINASLIGAS may share the data with partners or with third parties acting on their behalf.




The period of time during which data is stored, varies according to the purpose for which information is used, in accordance with the current legislation.




By virtue of the applicable legislation, the Holder may request, at all times:

a) access to his/her data;

b) rectification, elimination or limitation of the processing of his/her data provided that it does not impair MINASLIGAS systems’ operations;

c) the portability of his/her data;

By virtue of the law, the Holder is guaranteed the right to, sending an email, withdraw his/her consent for the processing of the data. The Holder has the right to withdraw his/her consent at any time, which does not invalidate, however, the treatment carried out until that date, based on the previously given consent.




This policy of personal data protection fully applies to all Holders and must be observed by all Company’s employees. All the employees will sign the "Term of Commitment", by means of which they confirm they have read and know all the contents of this Policy, committing to watch over its application and observance. The access to systems that contain data will be restricted to employees who depend on them to perform their tasks, through rigid control that identifies the authorized users. Thus, access to the system will be assigned according to the user's profile, and there may be restricted access to certain files due to the position occupied by the employees. Access to the systems will be controlled by the IT area and will be under the supervision of the Information Technology Manager, who will be responsible for assigning passwords for access to the network. Access to the system will only be allowed through login and password, whose nature is personal and non-transferable. In the case of data breach, as well as the inadequate treatment thereof, the employee must contact the Information Technology Manager, whose contact information is described in CONTACT US.




The Company is committed to ensure the confidentiality, protection and security of the personal data of its Owners, applying appropriate technical and organizational measures for data protection against any form of improper or illegitimate treatment and against any accidental data loss or destruction. The Company owns systems and equipment designed to guarantee data security, creating and updating procedures that prevent unauthorized access, accidental loss and/or destruction of personal data, undertaking to respect the legislation regarding the protection of Holders’ personal data and treat this data only for the purposes for which it has been gathered, as well as to ensure that data is treated with adequate levels of security and confidentiality. In this area, the Company appointed a person responsible for data protection, the Information Technology Manager, to monitor the compliance with the applicable policies and regulations regarding the protection of personal data. In some situations, the Company may transmit the data of the Holders to the competent authorities, since that it is provided for in the legislation or is determined by the competent authority.




The Company adopts a contingency plan to guide the behavior of its employees in the case of data breach, inadequate treatment and violation of its systems by hackers. Human failure, although inevitable, is mitigated through the adoption of manuals and internal policies aiming at the behavior guidance of the employees in the performance of the activities together with the Company, aiming to prevent them from treating the Data in an inadequate manner and/or perform data leakage. System invasion by hackers is mitigated through firewalls and antivirus. It is the responsibility of the Information Technology Manager to monitor this behavior and, should any infraction be identified, it must be brought to the Board, so that the appropriate measures are adopted.





The Company produces and markets silicon and its related alloys and exports its products to several countries worldwide. However, risk limits are related to the treatment of the data of clients’, suppliers’ and associates’ representatives, during the development of their activities, as well as in the treatment of the data of the employees who come to live in Brazil, or those who go to live in the European Union.






It consists of the risk of data leakage by the Company's employees and/or invasion of the systems used by the Company. The risk of leakage must be mitigated by means of periodic security tests, the adoption of the login and password for each employee, the use of firewall and antivirus systems and the control of access to documents.




It consists of the use of the data by the Company’s employees for purposes other than those envisaged. This risk can be mitigated by adopting profiles of access to the systems the Company uses, training its employees at the time they are admitted to the Company, periodic training of employees, presentation of the privacy policy of personal data to all employees and application of sanctions in case of legislation violations.




It consists of the storage of data by the Company for a period longer than necessary and/or required by legislation. This risk can be mitigated by constantly reviewing the information stored by the IT team and/or another company hired by the Company.




MINASLIGAS maintains, within the integrated management system, a procedure related to risk management in accordance with document P- - Risk and opportunity management. The Information Technology Manager will carry out a systematic analysis in the spreadsheet P- – Exhibit GR - Management of IT risks and opportunities, updating the data, periodically.
