Information sent through our contact forms goes directly to an employee of Orange Tax Services and is then subject to the general privacy policy of our company (see our Data Access Agreement pdf download for more details). No data retained in the server logs is ever used and the server log data is deleted on a regular basis.

Server Logs

Any technical information received as a result of your visit to this website, such as IP address, browsing device, device operating system, time of visit, originating web address and subsequent web address (what web page you were on before coming here and which address you went to afterwards), is kept on a rolling yearly basis (for analysis in the case of website outages) and then destroyed.

Breaches of website security

No data is kept in online databases from any online web forms – these send messages and any attachments directly to the owner of the website. Any traces in the server logs will be deleted in due course (see above).

However, since any breach of our web content system could in theory give access to that temporary server log information, the breach would be reported within a maximum of 72 hours to the local Data Protection Authority.
