Privacy Policy


Privacy statement – Ariana Fort Acting Studio


 
AFA Studio will send you emails if you subscribe to our mailing list, send us contact information, or register in as a member of our website www.afastudio.net 
We use an opt-in service, allowing you to change your personal details and your subscriptions or to completely unsubscribe from our list at any moment.
The information that you will receive will be sent to you based on your subscription.
 

What information do we collect and what for?


In order to provide you with useful information, we collect only a minimal set of data.

 

Personal information


Registration information


If you register as a member, we need to identify you in order to prevent other persons to access to your data. To do this, we need a login (your e-mail address or your login to our website) and a password.

Personal details and preferences


In order to provide you with good quality information, additional information might be required: your postal address for paper subscriptions, your phone number for phone contact and the way you got in contact with us – i.e. recommendation, website, social media, mail contact…
 

Subscriptions


We collect data about your subscriptions to different mailing lists which are also kept in excel sheet forms. All these places are password and antivirus protected. Only a limited number of people have access to these data.

 

Site usage information


This is technical information that allows us to provide you with the service, monitor its usage and improve it.
 

Session cookies


We do not collect cookies for marketing purposes or site usage and we do not pass on cookies to third parties. We use cookies during your registration or subscription to technically identify your requests during the session. These cookies do not contain personal information and can be disposed of at your will after your visit.
 
 
This is the list of the most common cookies that we use:
 

Log files


Log files allow us to record the usage of the site. They contain no personal information, nor information about which other sites you have visited. They allow us to improve the service by knowing its usage, and are processed anonymously.

 

How long do we keep your data?


We keep your data as long as you are subscribed. We only destroy the information from our website members list and excel sheet lists one month after you unsubscribe, in order to be able to restore it in case a mistake has been made. However, your data which is stored on our mailing service platform (MailChimp) stays there but is stored safely. You can read their Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
The same practice applies to WIX where we host our website. Read their Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
 

Who can access your data?


Only the persons in charge of website mailing service maintenance have access to your data for the purpose of sending you the requested information. Exceptionally, other people may have temporary access in order to go through with a project we are preparing for you. They are bound to AFA Studio and have the same commitment towards the Data Protection Directive as the company.
Our system administrators have access to the data for the purpose of keeping the service running. They are submitted to the same legal obligations and must identify themselves (login/password) for these operations.
 

Analytics


We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Service.

  • Google Analytics

  • Visitor Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.
You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.
For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitors' general details of the customers' websites. Collecting these statistics, a website can make their visitors' experience better (e.g. which pages they visit and when, where they are approximately located, where a user lands first or if they are coming from a specific referral).
Basically, as a website owner using Visitor Analytics, we are using cookies to collect data about visitors' device type and screen size, approximate location, browser, OS, IPs, page visits, bounce rate, conversions and popular content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will never use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user. Each visitor has control over the placement of the cookies. You can read more on https://www.visitor-analytics.io/privacy-policy/.

We use the collected data for various purposes:

  • To provide and maintain our Service

  • To notify you about changes to our Service

  • To allow you to participate in interactive features of our Service when you choose to do so

  • To provide customer support

  • To gather analysis or valuable information so that we can improve our Service

  • To monitor the usage of our Service

  • To provide you with news, special offers and general information about our activities, services, and events which we offer

 

Safeguarding your data


Your identification data (e-mail, password) is transmitted securely over the network (via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)) to our web server.
 
All the information you provided us (personal data and subscriptions) are accessible to employees of AFA Studio for the purpose of sending you information for which you subscribed. Access to the data is protected and requires identification (login/password) from them. They are bound to the same Data Protection agreement.
 

How can you modify your data?


You can modify your data at any time by choosing "Update your Profile" option which is available for you at the bottom of every mail of ours, or by sending us an email notification that you want to change your data or subscription. You have the following possibilities:

  • completely unsubscribe from the system. In this case, your data will be deleted from our database after one month.
