Wix (website)

Our company website is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides us with the online platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com and used by our company adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of any credit card information by our store and its service providers.

Sage One (accounting)

'The first thing we do to protect your and your clients' data is ensure all transmission of data between you and Sage is encrypted. We use high grade 128–bit encryption which is an industry standard also used in internet banking. This stops people from being able to view the information you’re sending over the internet.


We store all of your and your clients' data in a highly secure environment managed by Amazon Web Services. Each individual component that makes up the Sage infrastructure has multiple levels of redundancy built in. This means that there are many instances of the application all running in parallel and should something break and cause one of these instances to stop working, it's automatically taken care of and it won't affect you. Every component is actively monitored 24/7 and we have a team dedicated to ensuring that Sage is highly available.


Every aspect of the Sage service has been validated by specialist independent security organisations to give you and your clients the peace of mind that your data is safe with us.


Our Customer Support Team are an honest and trustworthy bunch and they cannot view your or your clients' data without your express permission. We also record something called a "user audit trail", which allows us to keep track of exactly who has done what to your data and when.'
