EU Copyright Directive

General Information

Birgitte Katborg Laursen, Architect MAA manages and operates an online architectural inspiration platform for promoting previous architectural, planning and design projects, works, development and business in Europe and worldwide.

My Media Material

All rights to use photos, videos, texts and graphics have been granted by the individual copyright owners for each piece in accordance with the EU Digital Single Market Copyright Directive. This includes all and any material used in my projects, employments, contract work, promotional services, offline services, content, features or functions offered by Birgitte Katborg Laursen, Architect MAA and all related services, whether I have taken the photographs myself, or my clients have supplied them on an ongoing basis.

Client Media Material

I take the processing and handling of my client's media material seriously and only use their media in accordance with the terms of this EU Digital Single Market Copyright directive. For the purposes of this Copyright Disclaimer, the term “media material” means any promotional and/or copyright-protected photos, videos, graphics, texts, project titles, project details, contact details, emails, links, social links, locations, addresses or other information related to users of my services, including but not limited to clients, employers and partners (legal entities). The legal basis for processing their media and personal data in accordance with the said activities is based on their acceptance of my Terms and Conditions, the GDPR, the EU Digital Dingle Market Copyright Directive, and other publishing and copyright-protective standards, as a condition of being a client, employer or partner.

Client Relationships

My interactions and relationships with employers, clients and partners are based on trust, and most of my clients, suppliers and partners will have met with me personally in real life, in an office, in business meetings, on projects, on construction sites, where we have exchanged business cards and contact information. When they send their media material to me for publishing or other purposes (e.g., by emails, phone calls, messenger, etc.), I retain such media and information as well as my interactions with them in the records of their client account.

Security and Storage

I am committed to handling client information with high standards of information security. I use computer safeguards such as firewalls and data encryption, and enforce physical access controls to office buildings and files, and only authorise access to personal information for core team members that require it to fulfil their job responsibilities. Any client data I retain for client interaction is stored offline on an external harddisk, which is stored in a locked metal safe.


I will only share information to public authorities or governments when required by law, regulation, criminal investigation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, from a legitimate government if it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, terror, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Terms of Service, or as otherwise required by law.

Your right as a client or user

You have the right to request access, rectification, restriction and deletion of your media material and data held by me, and receive a copy of your media and personal data in a structured machine-readable format. You also have the right to object to some media or data processing and, where I have asked for your consent to process your media or data, to withdraw this consent. Where I process your data because I have a legitimate interest in doing so (as explained above), you also have the right to object to this. In all other cases, the provision of requested personal data is optional. Your personal data will be retained in accordance with the provisions of the various services listed above. You can, at any time, ask me to delete your photos, videos, texts, or contact details from my records.

Changes to this document

From time to time, I may update or amend this Disclaimer to reflect new or different media or data privacy practices, without notice to you. Accordingly, I invite you to review the latest version of this Copyright Disclaimer. I will place a notice on this website or communicate to you when I make changes to this Copyright Disclaimer. If you do not agree to any of the modified terms, you must discontinue the use of our website and services, and ask me to delete your client account.


This Copyright Disclaimer shall, save for mandatory local law, be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Denmark and The European Union and be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Denmark and The European Union.
