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.
- Databases are sanitised (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.
