We do not and will never sell or transfer your data for reasons other than providing you with a better service on our own websites whilst maintaining your privacy and security. All third party services adhere to strict security and privacy policies which are also in accordance with European GDPR laws. We use various services in order to achieve this including:
- Hosting services for storing and serving information related to this website.

- CRM software for managing communication via email or phone between ourselves and those contacting us for information about our services.
- Email Services for sending and storing email communication.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
When you contact us, we will retain data concerning our communication until you ask us not to, in order to provide a better service should you contact us again.

You can request this information or for your information to be erased by contacting us here.
How we protect your data and what data breach procedures we have in place
We protect customer data with the following site features:
- We are entirely using SSL/HTTPS throughout all our sites. This encrypts our user communications with the servers so personal identifiable information is never captured by third parties without authorization.
- We use firewalls and malware scanners to prevent unauthorized access to your data.
- Databases are sanitized (actual user personal details are removed) before deploying to development or testing environment.
In case of a data breach, System administrators will immediately go through affected users and will attempt to reset passwords if needed after informing the user.
