HOTMART worries about its USER’s privacy. Furthermore, HOTMART values the transparency of its activities and always makes it clear for the USER how the Platform works.
It is important to clarify what Cookies and similar technologies are prior to mentioning why and what to use them for.
To come to the point, Cookies are a small data file (usually encrypted text files) that websites request the users’ browser store, whether on the computer or mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.)
Therefore, cookies are used, among other purposes, to identify USERS, store and remember preferences customized by USERS, help USERS complete tasks without the need to re-enter information when browsing from one website to another or when visiting the Platform again.
Other data collection tools, similar to Cookies, are also employed by the HOTMART Platform, analytic and tracking cookies that aim to collect USER data and understand their behavior to enable the Platform to work.
Essentially, there are two groups of cookies that can be used:
PERMANENT COOKIES: são cookies que ficam armazenados ao nível do browser nos seus equipamentos de acesso (PC, mobile e tablet) e que são utilizados sempre que faz uma nova visita a um dos nossos websites. São utilizados, geralmente, para direcionar a navegação aos interesses do utilizador, permitindo-nos prestar um serviço mais personalizado.
SESSION COOKIES: temporary cookies stored on your browser until you leave the website. The information obtained by these cookies is used to analyze traffic patterns on the web, allowing us to identify problems and provide a better browsing experience.
Category of cookie that allows the HOTMART Platform to remember information that changes how the site behaves or is displayed, such as the preferred language or the location the user is. The main objective in using this type of cookie is to improve the user experience when using the PLATFORM.

TRACKING: Category of cookie that register clicks on links, adds and commercial transactions such as sales and leads by storing files on the devices of people who visited the website of our users (Producers and Affiliates.)
We emphasize that the only purpose of using tracking cookies on the platform is to identify a transaction made by an Affiliate through its Affiliate link, enabling their commissioning once a transaction is completed. Therefore, said cookie does not collect personal data from visitors but only when and on the device in which a click on an affiliation link occurred thus leading to the register of such information.
Therefore, we emphasize that it is the obligation of PRODUCERS and AFFILIATES of the HOTMART PLATFORM, when generating and using the affiliation link with tracking cookies, to get the free, informed, and unquestionable consent from users and visitors from the websites and other locations where the affiliation links are shared and/or made available.
Moreover, USERS (PRODUCERS and AFFILIATES) will be fully responsible for complying with the applicable laws and norms related to the protection of personal data, especially the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from the European Union, taking full responsibility for obtaining the expressed and unequivocal consent from users/customers in relation to the collection, storage, treatment and processing of personal data, in the terms of the applicable legislation. Therefore, HOTMART is not held responsible for eventual failure of its USERS in complying with such rules, reserving the right to suspend and/or cancel the contract with USERS who are not in conformity with the applicable data protection legislation, as well as retain balance from receivables from such USERS as partial compensation from damages, or to deliver such balances to a third-party under court order.
