Personal Data at Tønder Festival

Tønder Festival uses personal information to organise the festival, supply tickets, target information, communicate with volunteers and other functions necessary for the running of the festival. Tønder Festival gathers the personal data required to produce Tønder Festival and for the day-to-day running of the festival organisation.

The information we hold about you comes from three sources: what you choose to tell us, what your use of our services tells us about you, and third party sources such as our external ticket service.


If you receive the Tønder Festival Newsletter, we hold the following personal data::

Name, e-mail address and date of birth.

You have to actively subscribe to the Newsletter. We need your e-mail address so we can send you the Newsletter. You choose whether to give us your date of birth, and that information is not needed to receive the Newsletter, but Tønder Festival can use it to target marketing. Tønder Festival does not pass your e-mail address on to third parties, and you can always unsubscribe from the Newsletter via a link in the Newsletter. If you unsubscribe from the Newsletter, your e-mail address is removed from Tønder Festival's newsletter mailing list.

Photography and video

Photographs and video can appear on Tønder Festival's website, on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and in printed materials such as the programme, flyers etc.

The aim is to give a situational impression of Tønder Festival, but the pictures can also be used to sell tickets for the festival and related events.
