Since 2015, Portugal has more strictly enforced a long-standing law requiring anyone providing paid holiday accommodation to record the entry, exit, and identification details of all non-Portuguese nationals who use that accommodation. This law has been brought into force in Portugal and most other EU countries at some point since the gradual implementation of the 1990 Schengen Agreement that aims to stop human trafficking and other illegal practices. In this case, it is specifically Article 45 of the Schengen Agreement and the recent Aojamento Local law in Portugal that has been brought this rule into sharper focus. As a result of the enforcement of this legislation, Algarve Retreats are obliged to provide the Portuguese authorities with the passport details, dates and places of birth along with the home address of all passengers using our managed accommodation.
Should you require any further information regarding this practice, the governing body that monitors the movement of foreigners in Portugal is SEF (Serviço Estrangeiros e Fronteiras or the Immigration and Borders Service).
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit web pages. The owner of the cookie (who may not be directly connected to the web page that planted it – see Third Party cookies below) can access the information that is stored on that cookie when you view any web pages that include the cookie owner’s code.
Cookies are widely used, are necessary for the correct function of many websites (including most, if not all, e-commerce websites) and can create a more enjoyable website user experience. However, they are also used to track user behaviour and some visitors view this as an infringement of their privacy. This has led to the introduction of European Cookie Law.
Our website uses two cookies, both of which are allowed under European Cookie Law:
1. A single “session” cookie is used to recognise a user during the course of a visit to our website. This cookie stores a unique identifying number which we can reference to provide continuity to your visit, for example by ensuring you don’t see certain content repeatedly if it’s not necessary. This cookie is deleted automatically when you close your browser and stores no data other than the unique number. It is allowed under the Cookie Law as “strictly necessary”, in other words the site cannot do what you want it do to without this cookie.
2. A second cookie is used so that we know that you have seen our Welcome / Cookie notice, as required under by the Cookie Law. Again this cookie stores no personal information and is “strictly necessary”.
Third party cookies
In addition, our website uses Third Party cookies. These are cookies that are owned by external organisations, are widely used across the web and provide significant benefits. We only use one use one type of Third Party cookie:

Third Party cookies are set up and managed by the Third Party and not Justhands-on.tv. We don't control the setting of these cookies, so we suggest you check the Third Party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
If you do not want our cookies or Third Party cookies to be planted on your computer, you can disable cookies in your web browser. This will prevent any cookies of the types that you specify from being placed on your computer.
However, if you choose to disable cookies, some elements of our website may not work properly.
