This privacy policy sets out how JDDK Architects uses and protects any information that you provide us.

JDDK takes data protection seriously and is committed to ensuring your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement.


What we collect:

We lawfully collect personal data appropriate and relevant to us providing our architectural service including:

  • Contact information – name, address, email address, postal address, telephone number, other relevant information
  • Identifiers created by technology e.g. Internet protocol addresses and cookies
  • Details relating to the project/commission on which we are appointed to provide our services
  • Payment and invoicing information (which will be kept in a secure place and only be accessed by the appropriate people)


What we do with the information:

JDDK holds and processes such information because the person has contacted the company for various reasons. Other data could be for the purpose of marketing. Further details relating to data used for marketing is given below.

We lawfully process personal data, for example, for performing a contract for architectural services, complying with legal obligations, pursuing legitimate interests and as necessary for employment.

The majority of the data JDDK holds will not be shared to any third parties, as it is for the purpose of the company alone. However, if any data is shared with third parties it will be in the best interest of the person whose information it is or we are required to by law or because it has been requested by that person. It is the responsibility of any third party in contact with JDDK to securely store and process data they hold.

JDDK holds data until it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was being held or until someone withdraws their consent for JDDK to hold the data or requests that data to be deleted, which is the right of any person (see further information below).
