This statement explains the extent to which we collect, use and protect website visitor data. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us at email@example.com. We reserve the right to change this privacy statement. Latest update of version: 7 August 2023.
Summer Dance Forever processes your personal data because you use our website and/or because you provide this data yourself. We highly value your privacy, and below we explain as clearly as possible how we collect, use and protect your information. Our contact details can be found on the contact page on this website.
Our goal: an accessible website
We want to provide an accessible website, which meets the needs and expectations of the visitor. The personal data we process on our server are the following: data about your activities on our website, your IP address, internet browser, and device type. We analyze this data to improve and secure our website. We never share your personal data with third parties.
Our website contains links to other websites. Summer Dance Forever has no control over these sites and is not responsible for their content or policies.
Privacy refers to personal information that can be traced back to whom it belongs. As a visitor, you provide some of this information intentionally and some is collected in the background.
Data you provide yourself
For the sale of tickets, we use Paylogic/See Tickets. To purchase tickets you first need to set up a ‘My SDF account’. With setting up the account, your first and last name, email address and password are stored with AWS Cognito. If you purchase a ticket, Paylogic/See Tickets collects your name, email address, postal address, country, date of birth and phone number, which the ticket company provides to us for the handling of the agreement (find more information under the heading ‘Emails’) and (anonymized) analyses. We store your data in our customer database TicketWorks to achieve this.
When subscribing to our newsletter, your name and email address are requested. The subscription via our website is done through the external party MailChimp. But when you make a ‘My SDF account’ or buy a ticket through Paylogic/See Tickets you can also indicate that you want to subscribe to our newsletter. You can unsubscribe from future emails at the bottom of each email received, if you so wish.
Did you purchase a ticket to a Summer Dance Forever program? Then we may email you (in the case you bought the ticket online) with information about the program, such as information about transportation, program changes, and other program-related matters. We will not send you any messages that are not related to the program you attended. If you would like to continue to be notified about Summer Dance Forever programs at a later date, you can permit us to do so by opting in through one of our channels (including our website, Paylogic/See Tickets).

Visiting a program
During our programs, we take photos and make video recordings, which we share via our social media channels and on our website. Video recordings may also be made at programs by our location partners for security reasons.

Data collected via Google Analytics cookies will be stored by Google for 26 months. We keep photos and videos on our social media and website indefinitely.
