We will always ensure that we have appropriate contractual terms in place with all our Suppliers that comply with the General Data Protection Regulation.

We have robust information security management systems in place to ensure the safety, security, integrity and confidentiality of your personal data; we use a variety of data security measures intended to ensure the safety, security, integrity and confidentiality of your personal data. We are familiar with and shall at all times comply with the GDPR and other applicable data protection legislation.

Our IT systems, containing customer data, have rigorously audited technical controls to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of all information is maintained at all times. As a requisite of our Plastic Card Industry (PCI) Compliance, Vulnerability Testing and Penetration Testing is performed regularly by independent Third Parties.
