WHEN DO I COLLECT YOUR DATA?

I collect your e-mail address and contact details whenever you book a class with me, or when you purchase an artwork from me. I collect your e-mail address  when you send me e request through my website and register for my newsletter. 

WHY DO I COLLECT AND HOW DO I USE THE PERSONAL DATA? 

Registration of the information is necessary to enter into an agreement (booking or sales contract) with me and to provide you with service messages about my classes or your purchase(s).

Due to this, I will ask for your and/or your child’s name, age, address, e-mail address and food allergies in case of a class with snack. I ask for your telephone number so I can contact you quickly if there is any problem with your booking or an emergency. 

In addition, I ask at the beginning of the workshop if I am allowed to use photos of you and/or your artworks made during the classes for marketing purposes on my websites, to market Sonja Soyer art & classes. 
I also ask at the beginning of the children’s classes if I am allowed to use photos of your children and/or their artworks made during the classes for marketing purposes on my websites, to market Sonja Soyer art & classes. 
You of course have the right to decline this request, and also have the right to ask me at a later stage to remove a photo that you are not happy with.

HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

When you book with me, I use a secure computer to enter your details into my working lists. I use a reliable and GDPR compliant mail provider and a secure connection to enter your name and e-mail address into my mailing list.

HOW LONG DO I KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA? 

The personal data in the booking information is kept in order to comply with local authorities rules to keep prove of my income. 

If you registered for a workshop or subscribed to my e-mail service, I will store your personal data until you delete the profile or unsubscribe from my newsletter. 

To be sure I have updated information about my class participants, I am asking you at the beginning of all workshops, to provide me with details on a subscription sheet. If your profile has not been used or activated for 3 years, I will delete it.​
