The security of your data such as subscriber lists and campaign content is incredibly important to us.

We have put in place both hardware and software protection to ensure that nobody else has access to your account and the information it contains.

In the data centre, there are several layers of protection around the servers.

  • Level 1: A proximity card and PIN is required just to enter the building
  • Level 2: Proximity card access and fingerprint scan is required to enter the data centre
  • Level 3: Locked cages and cabinets secure all the hardware
  • Level 4: Video surveillance cameras are monitored constantly
  • Level 5: Vibration detection devices detect any motion

Precautions have been implemented in several layers.

All sensitive data is stored on servers behind a constantly maintained firewall.

There is security built into the operating system preventing outside access, and all major security patches are tested and applied within 2 weeks of release.

The databases are secured by additional access restrictions, and more sensitive data is also encrypted within the database.

The security systems have been audited by eBay, who were satisfied with the security levels.

Your data is constantly mirrored to a redundant backup server, in the event of any significant failure we can instantly switch to this live backup without any data loss.

All the hardware is also fully redundant.

Further to these measures, all your data is backed up to an off-site location every night so that in the event of a system-wide disaster, we can perform a full backup recovery.
