Processing of Customer Data

We take care to process the absolute minimum amount of personal data about yourself or your company. We require this data to provide quotations, invoices, or for the delivery of services to you. Where this data is processed online, the data is held on our own server infrastructure which is located in a secure data centre. Our data centre partners cannot access your data (despite unhundered physical access to our servers) due to the way we containerise data.

If you would like to know what data we hold about you, you are more than welcome to make a request via the Contact Form. Once we have confirmed your request, we will endeavour to provide you with details of the data we hold within 14 working days.

Security of data held outside of our data centre

Due to the nature of our business, we hold several types of data off-site. As part of our disaster recovery and business continuity plans, we hold a back up of all server data at a minimum of two off-site locations. Off-site copies of data are held in strongly encrypted containers which can only be accessed with the appropriate decryption key. This includes any files that we create in the process of building services for you. In the event of theft of the equipment, your data will be inaccessible.

Notification of Security Breaches

Where we discover a security breach has occurred, we will inform affected customers immediately on discovery. Where appropriate, we will work to identify the source of the breach, and inform appropriate authorities.
