When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available at https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

How we protect your data

All user data is stored in an encrypted database on our server, which is itself stored on encrypted external storage.

All unnecessary user accounts (including the Linux ‘root’ user) have been removed or locked down on our server to help prevent unauthorised access. All data transferred to or from our server over the World Wide Web is encrypted.

What data breach procedures we have in place

If, at any time, we believe there to be a data breach, or a danger thereof, we will notify all users that have any possibility, however remote, of being affected, conduct an investigation to the best of our ability and resources and act upon our findings.

We also have the ability to remotely “lock up” the external encrypted storage, which will disable the server, but protect the personal data on it even from physical extraction attempts.

Square share data with us so that we can complete invoices and orders.
