Protecting your data

We and the organisations that we associate with have robust security measures in place to protect your personal and business information. We check your identity when you sign your initial contract, audit our contract records regularly and encrypt all files that are stored and transferred internally and externally. Additionally, we don’t take card payments over the phone to prevent any fraudulent activity. Finally, where bank statements or other financial information are given as proof of identity/business, all activity is redacted prior to storage and processing.

We only store your personal information for as long as is required for the purpose of the business activity, for legal reasoning or for our financial records. For example, we only retain a copy of your contract for the length of the contract plus three months before all copies are disposed of.
