How your data is protected

We take the security of all personal data very seriously, and that data is protected in a number of ways:

Access control: access to personal data is strictly limited in line with our policy detailed in the ‘Customer Privacy Policy section’ on this page. Access is controlled by individual user accounts, where a strong password policy is enforced
Dedicated security software: We operate dedicated security scanning and access control software on all of our websites. This software is responsible for limiting login attempts to our site, blocking potentially malicious attempts to access our services, and regularly performing full file system scans.
Selection of third party service providers: we use a very limited number of third party service providers, but some are essential for the provision of physical hosting environments and cloud services. One of the core factors in the selection of such providers is their ability to provide secure systems and processes.
