Thank you for visiting the website of Nordic School of Shamanism.

Your privacy and protection of your personal data are important. As of May 25, 2018, we have an obligation to collect and protect your data in accordance with new European standards for data protection. The goal of the new framework is that we deal with your data in a lawful, fair, and transparent manner, and that we take steps to ensure your data are adequately protected.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and store your personal data. You can request further information about what personal information we are holding and how it is being used; you can ask for electronic copies of your personal information to be sent to you; and you can request we erase your personal data.

We are limited to using your data under the following conditions: where you have consented to it, where we need to in order to fulfill our contract with you, or in certain special circumstances, such as compliance with legal obligations, or for other legitimate purposes.

We have adopted a “Privacy by Design” approach to your personal information, meaning that, to the best of our ability, we will employ means of collecting, storing, and transmitting your data, with a view to promoting privacy and data protection from the outset.
