Usually this in the form of name, address, email address and phone numbers. There may be additional information held as required to allow invoicing.
BPN Architects do not hold and would never ask for “special category data” such as health records or information relating to someone’s race, religion or sexual orientation.
How we collect it
We only collect data that people provide to us voluntarily via email or other direct contact. This will be re-confirmed via various mediums such as email signatures, appointment letters and other formal business correspondence.
