How do we store your data?

Our Company securely stores your data at the servers and databases of Sendinblue, which are all in the EU, as follows:


"We rent storage bays in French datacenters (Online’s DC2 and DC3 datacenters located in Vitry-sur-Seine, in the region of Ile-de-France), and the hardware used is owned solely by SendinBlue. Data is stored either on Google Cloud in Belgium or on AWS in Ireland.

All data is copied at least three times in at least two different geographical locations. In the event of a catastrophic scenario, SendinBlue also regularly backs-up your data. This is encrypted before being stored in the cloud (AWS or Google Cloud). Data is backed up at least once a week and in some cases (depending on how you use your data) more often." (Sendinblue).


Our Company will keep your name and email address for a year. Once this time period has expired, we will contact you for permission to retain it for a further year, failing which we will delete your data from the database.
