Data Protection

The application of the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) began on 25 May 2018. The objective of the GDPR is, among other things, to strengthen natural persons’ rights and liberties, address the global aspect of data protection and to increase the efficiency of implementating control of data protection rules. The operations and services of Archinfo Finland (Arkkitehtuurikeskus ry.) comply with the requirements of the new regulation.

Communications are an essential part of Archinfo Finland’s operations, which is why we control a filing system for personal data. In accordance with the principles of the GDPR, we undertake to process personal data responsibly: we only collect the data we need, keep it only as long as we need it, and, in the event of a personal data breach affecting our filing system, notify the supervisory authority immediately.

All data subjects in our filing systems will be able to access the data we keep about them and to change it, or have it removed if they so wish, unless there is a legal ground, associated with, for example, archiving, for keeping data. If you want to find out what data concerning you we have in our filing system, send a data request to arch(at) In the message, tell us your name and connection with Archinfo Finland. We will provide you with an account of the data concerning you we have in our possession within a month.

We will request permission from new contacts to process their data. When requesting permission for data processing, we will inform the data subjects of their rights, the reasons and purposes for which we collect data, and how long it will be kept. This information is also provided in our privacy policy below.

We continually develop and update our data protection practices and want to keep distributing information concerning news and events in the field architecture.
