How we protect your data
Your connection to our website is via secure SSL to help keep your passwords and data safe. Additionally, this website takes advantage of a "Unique Security Encryption Key". This Unique Security Encryption Key works to further protect all User/Member accounts from being accessed or abused by hackers.
This website keeps passwords with a One-way Encrypted Hash, using only a "hashed" version of your password for future comparison. This means that your plain text password is not stored anywhere, and therefore cannot be stolen and/or shared through this website. Only an encrypted "hash" is known, with no way to decode the actual value of the password itself (e.g. a One-way Encrypted Hash).
We keep our server and web software up-to-date to ensure all the latest security patches are installed and additionally have a regular security scan of all the software on our server to ensure that no unauthorised changes are made.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In accordance with the latest laws, such as GDPR, we will notify all users of any data breach within 72 hours of such a breach being detected.
