Storage of personal data

PianolesAlmere stores the personal data of customers as registered at enrolment: first- and last name, home address, phone number(s), email address(es) and the date of birth of the student. The date of birth is of importance because of the VAT exemption (BTW-vrijstelling) of music education for students up until 20 years of age.

For students of 21 years and over, 21% VAT is due over the price of the lessons.

Purpose of storage of the data

The data mentioned above is stored for communication about the lessons. The customer will receive the invoices for the piano lessons via the registered home and/or email address. Also, the customer will receive only the necessary information about the lessons, concerts, competitions and exams via these addresses. This communication is necessary for organizing the lessons, the lesson agreements, the concerts, exams, competitions and festivals.

Storage period of the data

All data mentioned above is safely stored in the computer(s) of PianolesAlmere. The data of current students is stored as long as the student takes lessons with PianolesAlmere. Because of tax laws, the invoices will be stored for a further seven years on the computer of PianolesAlmere and after that, they will be destroyed.

Data providing to third parties

PianolesAlmere does not share any data of customers to third parties, with the exception of the tax consultant. With this company, a processing agreement (verwerkingsovereenkomst) is in place, which means that they will not share the personal data from the invoices with anybody else and will not use this data for their own purposes.

Also, the address data of students who take part in the piano grade exams of the EPTA (European Piano Teachers Association) are shared with that organization. This is necessary for printing the name and date of birth on the certificate (enrolment for these exams can only be done by the teacher).

This is always agreed explicitly with students and/or parents whenever a student enrols for an exam.

Video recordings

At presentations, recordings are made for educational purposes. These recordings can be used for  reviewing the performance with the student and/or the parents in the lessons. Also, some video recordings of students are published at the website for promoting the lessons of PianolesAlmere, but only after explicit authorization by the student and/or the parents. These recordings are stored in the private youtube channel of PianolesAlmere. Here, the settings for public reactions and enclosing of the url are switched off.
