Security of data
Data is held on a password protected computer. Paper data is stored in a locked office which is only accessed by authorised personnel and is never left unlocked and unattended. The building has cameras and an Intruder Alarm which is connected to a monitoring centre.
Disposal of paper documents is via shredder on site.
We accept payments by credit/debit card, BACS or cheque. If a card payment is made over the telephone, the vendor copy is stored in paper format only with no other identifying personal information in a stand-alone file in the locked office. Mission Cycles hold a certificate of validation with First Data for the card reader.
Invoices are held on a password protected computer and in paper format in a locked office. It is a requirement of HMRC to retain invoices and sales data.
