Service Affecting, Maintenance and Account Related Emails

All Simple will send email notifications to customers if there is a problem affecting their service or if there is a risk that their services will be disrupted. We need to send these emails so that customers are aware of issues so they can make necessary changes to accommodate this. We do not send notifications for very low risk maintenance or testing, only when it will probably end in downtime. Customers may also be contacted with regard to their service if, for example, they have exceeded resources, have security risks or problems with their account or transactions.

Storing of personal data

We take the security of your data seriously, continuously reviewing security measures. This also means only keeping personal information that is necessary and only for the time it is needed for the contract. Any customer that has cancelled their services with us and has no affiliate referals or balance outstanding will have all their details destroyed after 12 months.

If a data breach were to occur, we will follow the GDPR guidelines and time-frames for informing customers of all details as soon as possible, being clear and informative. This is then gives the customers the ability to make any changes they wish to make.

Extra information consent
