Since May 2018 we use MailChimp (The Rocket Science Group LLC) to send newsletter emails to everyone that has subscribed to our newsletter. By subscribing to our newsletter you give us your consent (according to article 6 (1)(a) GDPR) to send you emails about our next concerts and other events concerning the Blues Club. MailChimp acts as a data-processor on behalf of the Blues Club in this regard. During the signup we only ask for your email address, your preferred language and your explicit permission to send you emails. MailChimp stores and processes this information together with the IP address from which you signed up. We do not give your data to someone else or allow MailChimp to use this data for anything else except sending the newsletter. MailChimp is a US company and might store your data outside of the European Union. MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield framework. When you sign up to our email alerts, you agree to your data being stored in this way.

Ticket reservations, contact form and other emails to us

If you reserve a ticket for a concert via our website or use the contact form the submitted information is sent via email to one of the members of the Blues Club. We will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to reserve the ticket or answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per article 6(1)(a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
