Privacy notice

As musicians we love to share our music and experiences with our audiences and professionals in the music industry. We love it when you approach us after a concert, send us an email or contact us at any of our social media channels. But every conversation has to start somewhere. With a sound, a single note or just simply “hello”. Live and online. To start conversations and engage with our friends and fans online we use our website, newsletters and social media. Any personal information we collect is used only to inform you about TEMKO the best way we can. We care about your privacy, so here is some information on how we keep it secure and any third party services we use.

Visiting our website

We prefer our website as plain, simple and accessible possible to inform you on our activities, so we do not see the need to collect any cookies. To make sure everyone will find us online, we use Google Analytics which collects standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We use this tool to evaluate our website’s visibility in search engines and the quality of various parts of the website. All information collected by Google Analytics is only processed in a way that does not identify anyone. If you have any suggestions to improve the website, please contact us.

Links to other websites and social media

Our website features links to some social media channels to connect with you through our music and videos:

Some of the pages on our website contain tools or applications that are linked to the social media channels mentioned. These organisations may set their own cookies on your computer or device through these tools or applications, even where you do not click a button. If you share our content through social media, for example by liking us on Facebook, those social networks will record that you have done so and may set a cookie for this purpose. You should check the links we provided for further details about how the social media channels on our site use cookies. For any other links in our website to venues etcetera, please check the concerning websites for their privacy policy.

Buying our cd’s

Buying a cd in person is surely the best way to go. No data will be collected, you’ll meet us or a lovely merchandise lady and we can even sign your copy if you like.

If you wish to buy online, then CD Baby is an easy way to do it. We will receive your name and email address. We may thank you, ask you how you like our music and ask you to join the newsletter to be updated on any concerts and news. That’s it. But you can choose to opt-out of disclosing this information to us. The CD Baby store however collects more than just your name and email address. They don’t rent or sell the information to ‘nonaffiliated companies’, but you should check CD Baby’s extensive Privacy Policy. Please note that you can “opt-out of receiving e-mail notices or solicitations from CD Baby or their affiliates by responding to a link included in each e-mail notice or solicitation.”

Another option to buy our music is in the iTunes store. All information about collecting and using your information when buying our music in its store is covered in Apple’s Customer Privacy Policy.

If you want to buy a physical copy online, you can also send us an email and choose whatever information you wish to share and how you want to pay.

Subscribing to our newsletter

If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will only use your personal information for personalized and customized TEMKO mailings when we have news to share and we think you might be interested. We may contact you every now and then to check that you’re still interested and satisfied.

For the registration process and delivering our newsletters we use a third-party provider, MailChimp. This also allows us to gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us evaluate and improve our newsletters and report to funding institutions. For more information how MailChimp collects and uses data, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe to our mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails or MailChimp’s privacy notice.

Buying tickets for TEMKO concerts

When you purchase a ticket (or tickets) for any of our concerts at any venue, some data will be stored in Box Office systems used by these organisations. You should check the concerning venues’ privacy statements if you wish to know which information is collected and what it is used for. Please note, that there should always be a possibility to purchase a ticket (or tickets) in person without supplying personal information.

As a publicly funded ensemble we may ask venues to share anonymised personal information with us, which we may use to report to funding institutions, particularly art councils. As a part of these funding agreements, we need to analyse our audience development programmes, ticket sales and self-generated funding to give account for the public investment made in TEMKO.

Access to your personal information

We will happily give you an insight in the personal information we hold on you at your request, which you can amend, or delete. You can send us a request for this at any time.

Changes to this privacy notice

We keep our privacy notice under regular review. This privacy notice was last updated on 24 May 2018.
