Protecting personal data from access, loss or alteration is of the utmost importance to us. All visitor records, photos, account data, configuration data and contact information are stored in the Cloud, data centres within the United Kingdom.
Servers are updated with the latest security patches during scheduled routine maintenance.
The TAAP Visitor Book app and Website (referred to as our Services) access data using our secure API (short for: application program interface – how software components interact with each other forming the basis of software applications). The API uses encryption for data in transit, and every request must include a time-limited authentication token generated by the authentication system. Visitor data is encrypted at rest. For support purposes, a limited number of senior engineers can access client data via a virtual private network secure tunnel, controlled by private key-based secrets and multi-factor authentication.
As a Website user, you will log in with an email address and password, managed by your Admin as specified in . User passwords are hashed at all times and cannot be accessed or intercepted as we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
There are two user levels that can be set, controlling access to user management and configuration options. For accounts with multiple sites, there is also the option to restrict individual users to only view data for a single site.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Visitor data collected via our Services is only stored and/or processed within the United Kingdom (UK).

Where your personal data is transferred outside the United Kingdom, it will only be transferred to countries that have been identified as providing adequate protection for United Kingdom data, or where approved transfer mechanisms are in place to protect your personal data, i.e., by ensuring the entity is Privacy Shield certified (for transfers to US-based third parties). If you wish for more information about this, please contact email@example.com.
Any transfer of your personal data will follow applicable laws and we will treat the information under the guiding principles of this Privacy Notice.
