The website and the data are stored in a secure data centre and while all reasonable efforts have been made to maintain a high level of security a determined hacker can work through even the most sophisticated security systems. We take your data protection very serious and therefore the data stored on our website is encrypted making this close to impossible to use in the event of a data breach.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
This website has an SSL Certificate installed which encrypts the data being sent to and from the web server (where the website is stored) and the browser (which you use to view the web pages). When you fill in a form on this website the data is encrypted so that it cannot be read making using this website more secure.
