Basis of treatment and purpose - and overview of what & why

We collect your regular contact information such as name and address in order to deliver the product or service you have purchased from us. We collect your e-mail address in order to send you an order confirmation.

When you pay for your product or service, we collect your name, card data and IP address. The information collected in connection with the payment transaction is used and stored only for payment settlement and fulfilment of the contract entered into. When making payments, some of your data will be transferred to Stripe or PayPal, including information necessary to complete or support the payment, such as the total purchase amount and billing information.

If you have given us your consent to this during the registration process or on our website, we will use your e-mail address to send a newsletter. You can subscribe and unsubscribe at any time. All newsletters, and the signup forms on this website, also include a link to unsubscribe. If processing of personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke the consent at any time.

If you do not wish to provide the personal data required to complete a purchase of a product, you will unfortunately not be able to purchase products from us on our website.

Your information (except your email address, if you have consented to its processing for the purpose of receiving offers) will be deleted 10 years after you receive your item or service. This is the mandatory retention time set forth by EU VAT regulations. You may request erasure of personal data beforehand, see the "Your rights" section below.


Other recipients of personal data

We do not sell your personal data to third parties.

We have our website at, the payment systems through Stripe and PayPal, our newsletter service via MailChimp, and our site analytics via Google. They act as our data processors. These data processors are based in a third country, namely the United States. The relevant, collected data are therefore transferred to the US - and our data processors are compliant with, among others, the GDPR, see below.

All personal data that you provide on our website, except credit card information, will be stored in data centers. In addition, our data processors store the following information:

Stripe: Name, email address, postal address, credit card data, IP address

PayPal: Name, email address, postal address, IP address

MailChimp: Name (if given), email address

Google: IP address (which is immediately anonymised when arriving at Google, before any storage takes place)

We use these external companies as suppliers to deliver our services in the best possible way. Our data processors only process personal data according to our instructions and in accordance with the data processing requirements of the GDPR, as well as the Data Processing Agreement we have entered into with each.

The Data Processing Agreements with our data processors are our guarantee that they comply with applicable rules regarding the protection of your personal data, including, but not limited to, the rules of the GDPR.

Your rights

As the registered person, you have a number of rights that we must ensure at all times. You have the right to request the following:

  • To access and correct / change your personal data
  • To receive a copy of your personal data
  • To erase personal data (and hence delete your account)

These procedures are available directly on this website from the Your Account page when you are logged in. Otherwise, if for example you haven't created an account, you may use the contact form on the Contact page to send a request, or use the email address listed below with the subject line "Personal data erasure request".

If you wish to request erasure of your personal data or delete your account, and you send us your request via one of the above mentioned methods, Munk Productions will remove your personal data from our records including our mailing list (you will be unsubscribed and deleted at MailChimp), as well as requesting erasure of your personal data at Stripe. We cannot process PayPal related personal data, as these are a matter between you and PayPal, with whom you have entered into an agreement. Please contact PayPal yourself, if you wish to erase personal information from them. Note that this procedure will effectively delete your account along with download access and newsletter access.

About account deletion

If you have your account deleted, it's gone - it cannot be accessed or revived, and all data linking you to the actions taken (purchases etc.) and anonymous purchase data remaining, are removed. Technically, in our system, the legally required, anonymous purchase data (if any) remain. You are permanently disconnected in every way from the account, it is dead, and no-one can ever log into it again.


In addition to the above, you have the right to protest the processing of your personal data and you have the right to file a complaint with a data protection authority.

Our email address, to which you can send your request, is:
