How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

This website is hosted by CWCS within a UK data centre located just outside London and Nottingham.
Some of the data centre’s more notable security features are as follows:

CWCS ISO 27001 certification demonstrates that they protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of all the information within our organisation. This includes your information.
All staff at CWCS Managed Hosting take security seriously. Very Seriously. This includes security of our data centres, public cloud, private clouds, dedicated servers, shared servers, software, infrastructure, buildings, information, people and equipment. Everything in fact.

ISO 27001 Certification

To prove that they have the strictest security measures in place, CWCS Managed Hosting is formally certified to the internationally accepted global Information Security Management System standard ISO 27001. However, we endeavour to go beyond this and have additional measures in place to really enforce the security and safety of our hosting.

A Trusted Hosting Company

Trust is important to our customers because they know their data, information, applications and infrastructure are in safe hands with CWCS. Time and again, security comes up as a major concern with businesses considering outsourcing their managed hosting, and particularly those considering moving to cloud servers.

Colourmedia rely on their knowledgeable, dedicated and friendly staff who do not over or under specify hosting solutions; they focus on the customer’s genuine business needs. That’s how they’ve built high levels of trust over the years, and also have high customer retention rates.

Physical and Cyber Security

As well as taking wide-ranging technical measures to keep the servers, data centres and software safe from cyber-attacks, CWCS Managed Hosting also has extensive physical security controls. They systematically examine the information security risks within their organisation and take account of the threats, vulnerabilities and possible effects. This is all backed up with on-going processes to ensure the controls are adequate, maintained and effective. In this way, CWCS and Kirkaldy And Roe Ltd customers have reassurance that the data, websites, business applications and other information held on their cloud hosting infrastructure, shared servers and dedicated servers is as secure as possible.

CWCS Staff

CWCS induct, train and reinforce security to all their employees at all levels. Security is an integral part of everyone’s day to day role. It’s become engrained in CWCS company culture. Everything from information storage processes and HR practices to internal and external CCTV monitoring, access restrictions and management. Even photography is covered by security procedures.

ISO 27001 and Beyond

ISO 27001 confirms CWCS Managed Hosting is a company committed to security. It provides existing, new and potential customers with proven assurance that they operate to the very highest security standards. However, their commitment to safe and secure hosting goes beyond ISO 27001. Security of our data centres, offices and everything in them is essential to the success of our business. That’s why they take it so seriously.
