Security of personal data
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. While we believe the measures we have implemented reduce our vulnerability to security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data we hold, no system is completely secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Where we store and process personal data
Personal data collected by Selldorf Architects may be stored and processed in your region, in the United States, and in any other country where Selldorf Architects or service providers operate facilities. These parties may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your information requests, meeting your requests, and the provision of support services. Typically, the primary storage location is in your region or in the United States. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing.
If you are a resident in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or United Kingdom (“U.K.”), then these countries may not necessarily have data protection laws or other similar laws as comprehensive as those in your country. We will take all necessary measures to protect your personal information in accordance with this privacy statement and applicable law.
To the extent we transfer personal data from EEA or the U.K. to other countries, we have implemented measures to protect your personal information. This includes using standard contractual clauses for transfers of personal information between our companies and between us and our third-party providers. These clauses require all recipients to protect all personal information that they process originating from the EEA or UK in accordance with their respective data protection laws and regulations. These standard contractual clauses can be provided upon request.
European Union and U.K. Privacy Rights
In the EEA and U.K. you have certain rights under applicable data protection laws, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (i.e. EU-GDPR and UK-GDPR). These laws generally include the right: (i) to request access and obtain a copy of your personal information; (ii) to request correction or deletion of your personal information; (iii) to restrict the processing of your personal information; and (iv) if applicable, data portability. In certain circumstances, you may also have the right to object to the processing of your personal information. To make such a request, please contact us through the information provided below. We will consider and act upon any request in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
If we are relying on your consent to process your personal information, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Please note however that this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before its withdrawal, nor will it affect the processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.
If you are resident in the EEA and you believe we are unlawfully processing your personal information, you have the right to complain to your local data protection supervisory authority. You can find their contact details here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm

How to access and manage your personal data
We use information collected about you for the following purposes:
- Browser-Based Controls. There are browser-based controls for cookies, described in the Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies section of this privacy statement, and for blocking tracking or third-party content.
Further, certain countries may grant you specific rights to access, correct, delete, or object to the processing of, or transfer your personal data. To make a specific request, please contact email@example.com. You must be able to provide your name and email address or other information sufficient information to allow us to identify you.

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. Accordingly, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted in the future that we must follow, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this privacy statement. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit www.allaboutdnt.com.
