All organisations with clients in the European Union or the United Kingdom are subject to, and need to abide by, the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) Act 2018. JSWeb confirm we have fully reviewed our services, policies and procedures to comply with the GDPR legislation. For more information on GDPR we recommend visiting https://www.gov.uk/data-protection
Does JSWeb Share the Information It Receives? – We may use basic information, such as your IP address to monitor activity on our ordering system, for example, we may check your IP address against worldwide spam databases to see if the IP address has been used for illegal activities. This involves our automated systems passing your IP address. Currently we use MaxMind for our online fraud checks. We do not pass your name, address, telephone number, or any other personal information to any third parties except when required for the purpose of processing financial transactions unless required to do so by law. We do not distribute your email address to any third parties unless required to do so by law.
Third Parties – We engage other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf and indeed yours. Examples include processing credit card payments, providing marketing assistance, providing customer services, sending postal mail and email to you, managing customer lists, data entry and data analysis. These persons have access to personal information needed to perform their functions. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information that you provide to JSWeb for any secondary purposes.
How Secure Is Information About Me? – We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input and the information we may send to our agents. Information is stored in encrypted and password protected databases, which can only be accessed individually based on several security verification methods, such as location, email address, job title, security level, and the reason for record retrieval. All our employees are trained in data protection and privacy laws, and we restrict access to sensitive client information and webhosting data (files, databases and emails) to employees with the appropriate rank and training.
We acknowledge that information you provide to us may be confidential. We will only ever share information with our service providers when it is a necessary to do so, for example to register a domain name. We will never sell, lease or distribute any Personal Data to a third party.
What Information Can I Access? – You can request any information we hold on record for you. Requests can be made by opening a support ticket with our Billing/Accounts Department. We’re Data Protection Registered – JSWeb is registered to the Information Commissioners Office in the UK. We are bound by their policies as well as our own and, as data controllers, we understand our role and its responsibilities and endeavour to protect you and your information at all costs.
Your Rights – If you believe any Personal Data we hold is incorrect or incomplete, you can update it at any time via your Client Area. Please contact us if you have any issues logging in or updating your details. We will always take steps to correct any information providing we can validate your identity and we are satisfied the current information is inaccurate.
You have a legal right to data portability. This means you can request we provide an export file (in JSON format) containing the Personal Data we hold for you. If you are moving provider, you can give the export file to your new provider to make the process easier, providing they are able to import it.
You have a legal right to data erasure, or “the right to be forgotten”. This means you can request we permanently delete any Personal Data we hold about you, where it is no longer necessary for the purpose it was collected and where we have no other lawful basis for keeping it. Please note there are exceptions to this, for example we need to retain some information for legal and tax reasons. Requests can be made by opening a support ticket
Your Responsibilities – If you are using your website to store or process Personal Data, for example information relating to your clients, orders, a mailing list etc., then you have a legal responsibility to comply with all applicable data protection laws. For any data relating to EU citizens, you must abide by GDPR legislation (whether you are in the EU or not). In the UK, under the Data Protection Act 1998 there is a legal requirement for organisations to register with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
International Presence – JSWeb employs staff in the UK but also overseas. For example our staff work from France, Portugal and the United States. Importantly your Personal Data may be transferred internationally for us to provide you with your services.
