General Information

This GDPR Policy governs your use of products, services, content, features, technologies or functions offered by Birgitte Katborg Laursen, Architect MAA, and all related services.

You accept and consent to this GDPR and Privacy Policy when you sign up for, access, or use Birgitte Katborg Laursen, Architect MAA services. By accepting and consenting to this Privacy Policy, you expressly consent to my use and disclosure of your personal information and direct me to do so in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.

What I do

I manage and operate an online platform for promoting architectural, planning and design projects, works, development and business in Europe and worldwide.

Protecting your personal data

I take the processing of your information very seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, the term “information” means any confidential and/or personally identifiable information or other information related to users of my services, including but not limited to clients and partners (legal entities). The legal basis for processing your personal data in accordance with the said activities is based on your acceptance of the Terms and Conditions for being a client or partner.

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.

I have always kept your information safe and secure, and honoured your preferences in how I keep you updated with previous, current and future projects.

I use collected information for the following general purposes: architectural and design services provision, identification and authentication, billing and client contact.

I do not share your personal data with anyone. I do not transfer your data to other countries or continents.

I do not sell your personal data to any other companies, marketing agencies, research institutions, governments, regimes, organisations, networks or private individuals.

The type of client data I keep for sales/invoicing purposes is strictly limited to:

Company name, VAT number, company address, company website, company contact email, company phone number, main contact first and last name, and company Linkedin / Facebook Page url.

I DO NOT gather or process any information pertaining to deeper personal information, such as race, ethnicity, health, diet, medication, wealth, habits, purchases, device ID, geolocation information, account numbers, account types, details of payment transactions, details of commercial transactions, details of identity, hobbies, interests, marital status, date of birth, sex, persuasion, preferences, religion, political inclinations, opinions, or any organisational affiliations.

Security and storage

I am committed to handling your customer 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 those employees who 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.
