Privacy Statement

Making sure the Information on our website is easily accessible to all is a high priority. With that in mind we have introduced the following features.

Below we provide information about the security and privacy of the Jonathan Rhind Architects web site. We want all our customers to be confident using our site, particularly the use of personal information.

Jonathan Rhind Architects is committed to ensuring the privacy of all our customers. All information is collected and processed in accordance with the UK's Data Protection Act 1998.

The Data Protection Principles

Anyone processing personal data must comply with the eight enforceable principles of good practice. They say that data must be:

  • processed for limited purposes
  • adequate, relevant and not excessive
  • accurate
  • not kept longer than necessary
  • processed in accordance with the data subject's rights
  • secure
  • not transferred to countries without adequate protection.

Personal data covers both facts and opinions about the individual. It also includes information regarding the intentions of the data controller towards the individual, although in some limited circumstances exemptions will apply. With processing, the definition is far wider than before. For example, it incorporates the concepts of 'obtaining', holding' and 'disclosing'.
