We are aware that you place confidence in NDT. We also consider it our responsibility to carefully manage your privacy. We will provide you with more information about this in our privacy statement.

What personal data do we process?

To offer you the best possible service, it may be necessary for us to process your personal data. This may involve the following products/services:

• Attendance at a performance;
• Educational or talent development activities and/or workshops;
• Newsletter;
• Sponsorship;
• Our website and webshop;
• Social platforms on which NDT is active;
• Visitor research.

The type and scope of personal data that we process differ for each product or service. Examples include name, address, residence, age, telephone number, e-mail address, total amount spent and IP address. If you would like a complete overview of your data, then you can submit an access request (see below: What are my rights?).

For what purposes do we process your personal data?

We only process data from you that is necessary for:

As a sponsor, we record and process your personal data for correct administrative processing and to provide you with relevant information about the sponsorship. For marketing purposes, NDT may supplement your personal data with public information that is available about you. If you would like to object to this, different options are available (see below: What are my rights?).

If you would like to object to this, different options are available (see below: What are my rights?).

Is my customer profile enriched?

We can enrich the customer details you submitted to us with other data. We do this to obtain an insight into our customer base and to be able to better target our products/services to you.
We may add information from external sources to the data, such as the data we have processed from you. As an example, this involves demographic data that we can obtain from third parties. This refers to general information such as postcode areas (average age of residents at a certain postcode, average household composition, average income).

If you would like to object to this, different options are available (see below: What are my rights?).

Is my personal data shared with third parties?

NDT contracts third parties to execute its services and other business activities (such as printers, publishers, hosting services and automation service providers). Insofar as these third parties process your data to execute the relevant services and business activities, NDT takes the contractual, technical and organisational action to ensure that your data is processed carefully. NDT shall not share any further personal data with the third parties.

Has the theatre shared my personal data with NDT?

NDT does not sell entry tickets to performances itself. NDT has agreements with a handful of theatres (and venues) in the Netherlands and abroad where the theatre concerned shares the personal data with NDT. We collect and record the personal data shared by you when purchasing or otherwise and use this data to be able to carry out the service or inform you about (future) performances. You may object to this. For more information about this, please see the privacy statements of the theatres concerned. Upon receiving your personal data, NDT will send you an e-mail for your information. The message will again contain the option to object to inclusion in the NDT database.

Which retention period do we apply?

NDT retains your personal data for no longer than the purposes for which processing is required.
NDT will apply a maximum retention period of five years for personal data of inactive natural persons. Inactive natural persons refer to persons who have not used NDT services in this period.
Once the retention period has elapsed, your personal data is erased from our systems. Prior to erasure, NDT will send you an e-mail informing you. The data is then only used anonymously for purposes such as market research, development of products and services and other purposes related to the general business.

How is my personal data secured?

We have taken technical and organisational security measures in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR to protect the data we have against loss or unlawful processing. Your data is handled confidentially and stored on secure servers.
