Beccar Varela will delete your Personal Data when they are no longer necessary for the purposes described above. Due to technical issues, this process may take some time. In certain cases, Beccar Varela may keep your Personal Data when there is a legal obligation to keep the Personal Data, or when this is necessary for the defense of Beccar Varela’s rights. However, during such time or term, the Personal Data will be kept encrypted and non-operational, until its elimination.

We inform you that the Agency for Access to Public Information, in its capacity as the Control Body of Law No. 25,326, has the authority to deal with complaints and claims made by those whose rights have been affected by non-compliance with the regulations in force regarding the protection of personal data.
