The nature of our business means that Wordshop is often responsible for handling our clients’ data, which can range from simple name and address spreadsheets, to detailed employee information.
Data security is of the utmost importance to us and as a third party registered under the Data Protection Act, there are a number of protocols which we follow. For the benefit of clients who wish to know more about this aspect of our work, and who want reassurance of Wordshop’s experience in dealing with sensitive data, we have outlined our approach to data protection in the policy below.
Even though Wordshop is an office-based organisation, we do have an environmental impact through the large amount of print we create on behalf of our clients.
We try to minimise the impact of our work on the environment, as set out in our environmental policy below.
