Our website uses a third party that handles the e-mail traffic from our website and the sending of any newsletters. All confirmation emails you receive from our website and web forms are sent via the servers of One.com. One.com will never use your name and e-mail address for its own purposes. At the bottom of every e-mail that has been automatically sent through our website you will see the "unsubscribe" / "unsubscribe" link. If you click on this, you will no longer receive e-mail from our website. This means that we can no longer keep abreast of our (non-commercial) activities!

PayPal has taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data. PayPal reserves the right to use your data to further improve the service and in that context to share (anonymous) data with third parties.

In the event that PostNL engages subcontractors, PostNL also makes your data available to these parties.

Purpose of data processing

General purpose of the processing

We use your data solely for the purpose of our services. This means that the purpose of the processing is always directly related to the assignment that you provide. We do not use your data for (targeted) marketing. If you share data with us and we use this data to contact you at a later date - contrary to your request - we will ask you for explicit permission. Your data will not be shared with third parties, other than to meet accounting and other administrative obligations. These third parties are all held to confidentiality on the basis of the agreement between them and us or an oath or legal obligation.

Cooperation with tax and criminal investigations

In some cases, Accademia Amsterdam can be held on the basis of a legal obligation to share your data in connection with fiscal or criminal investigations by the government. In such a case we are forced to share your data, but we will oppose this within the possibilities that the law offers us.

Retention periods

We keep your data for as long as you are a client of ours. This means that we keep your (customer) profile until you indicate that you no longer wish to use our services. If you indicate this to us, we will also regard this as a forget request.
