Subject access requests
You have the right to see what personal data we hold about you. You can view the data held by us about you by accessing your account through the website, or by contacting us at [email protected]
Given that the Internet is a global environment, using it to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. This means for instance that data you pass to us may be processed outside the European Economic Area, although the data will always be held securely and in line with the requirements of UK data protection legislation. By communicating electronically with us, you acknowledge and agree to our processing of personal data in this way.
Where your data is stored
We store your data on secure servers in the European Economic Area (EEA).
Keeping your data secure
We offer the use of a secure server. All supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway provider’s database only accessible to those authorised with special access rights to such systems, who are required to keep the information confidential.
Our Payment Service Provider is Sage Pay – the largest independent payment service provider (PSP) in the UK and Ireland. Sage Pay provides a secure payment gateway (Level 1 PCI DSS), processing payments for thousands of online businesses, including ours. It is Sage Pay’s utmost priority to ensure that transaction data is handled in a safe and secure way. Sage Pay uses a range of secure methods such as fraud screening, IP address blocking and 3D secure. Once on the Sage Pay systems, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards. Sage Pay is PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant to the highest level and maintains regular security audits. They are also regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure that their systems are impenetrable. Sage Pay is an active member of the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) that defines card industry global regulation.
You can check that your session is in a secure encrypted environment when you see https:// in the web address, and/or when you see the locked padlock symbol alongside the URL.
We have procedures and security features in place to keep your data secure once we receive it, however please bear in mind that no internet transmission is 100% secure. We can’t guarantee the security of your data while it’s in transit: any data you send is at your own risk.
How long will the personal data be stored?
We will keep your personal data until you make a deletion request or for as long as necessary to provide the services you have requested or for other necessary purposes, such as fulfilling legal obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our policies.
Hard copy data is stored securely as per the time frame outlined by government legislation.
