How we back up data
All data we store is backed up automatically and store securely offsite. Files are encrypted before they leave our computers with the same encryption technology used in online banking. They are then stored in a state-of-the-art data centre which is guarded 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
How we send data
Security of information transmitted over the internet cannot be assured, therefore at your request we can password protect files before sending them to you via email, with passwords communicated by text message or verbally by telephone.
