Data security and protection

We ensure the security of any personal information we hold by using secure data storage technologies and precise procedures in how we store, access and manage that information. Our methods meet the GDPR compliance requirement.

We also protect your data by using a reputable and secure SSL certificate.

SSL provides a secure channel between two machines or devices operating over the internet or an internal network. One common example is when SSL is used to secure communication between a web browser and a web server. This turns a website’s address from HTTP to HTTPS, the ‘S’ standing for ‘secure’.

HTTP is insecure and is subject to eavesdropping attacks because the data being transferred from the web browser to the web server or between other endpoints, is transmitted in plaintext. This means attackers can intercept and view sensitive data, such as credit card details and account logins. When data is sent or posted through a browser using HTTPS, SSL ensures that such information is encrypted and secure from interception.

Why Do I Need SSL?

With so much of our day to day transactions and communications happening online, there is very little reason for not using SSL. SSL supports the following information security principles:

  • Encryption: protect data transmissions (e.g. browser to server, server to server, application to server, etc.)
  • Authentication: ensure the server you’re connected to is actually the correct server.
  • Data integrity: ensure that the data that is requested or submitted is what is actually delivered.

SSL can be used to secure:

  • Online credit card transactions or other online payments.
  • Intranet-based traffic, such as internal networks, file sharing, extranets and database connections.
  • Webmail servers like Outlook Web Access, Exchange and Office Communications Server.
  • The connection between an email client such as Microsoft Outlook and an email server such as Microsoft Exchange.
  • The transfer of files over HTTPS and FTP(s) services, such as website owners updating new pages to their websites or transferring large files.
  • System logins to applications and control panels like Parallels, cPanel and others.
  • Workflow and virtualization applications like Citrix Delivery Platforms or cloud-based computing platforms.
  • Hosting control panel logins and activity like Parallels, cPanel and others.

Fair & Transparent Privacy Explained

Sponsored links, affiliate tracking & commissions

Our website may contain adverts, sponsored and affiliate links on some pages. These are typically served through our advertising partners; Google Adsense, eBay Partner Network, Amazon Affiliates, or are self served through our own means. We only use trusted advertising partners who each have high standards of user privacy and security. However we do not control the actual adverts seen / displayed by our advertising partners. Our ad partners may collect data and use cookies for ad personalisation and measurement. Where ad preferences are requested as ‘non-personalised’ cookies may still be used for frequency capping, aggregated ad reporting and to combat fraud and abuse.

Clickable sponsored or affiliate links may be displayed as a website URL like this; www.soswestwales.com or as a titled text link like this: Storage in Pembrokeshire.

Clicking on any adverts, sponsored or affiliate links may track your actions by using a cookie saved to your device. You can read more about cookies on this website above.
