Your information is held securely within Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN), however may be stored and processed in any country in which our Regional Offices or agents operate in order to provide our services within those respective regions and/or to adhere to audit and regulatory requirements.   

If your information is transferred outside the FRN for any purposes, then we will take measures to ensure that your data remains protected at all times to the standard imposed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We require our trusted third parties to meet DocXpo data protection standards. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities may be entitled to access your personal data.

SECURITY OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. DocXpo websites are maintained on a secure server. All our suppliers and contractors meet the standards we require. Restrictions are also in place so that users only have access to data that is required for them to do obtain their registered interest. Staff training is undertaken regularly, and checks are made by IT staff to ensure data quality is maintained.

All payment card details are processed by a third party payment processor who encrypts the details using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology. Once orders have been processed all encrypted credit card information on the webserver is deleted. 

We also have in place a comprehensive email security Policy; all incoming and outgoing email is scanned by multiple security systems before being accepted or sent out. These security systems will block and hold messages that contain viruses and malware, spam messages or other inappropriate content.

Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system is completely secure. If you feel that the security of your account or interaction with us has been compromised, please contact us immediately. If such a disclosure does occur, we will contact you as soon as possible to explain what has happened and take all steps required of us to meet our obligations under the legislation.
