Internal Data Proccessing
We process some data internally in the legitimate interest of running our business and delivering your projects.
We may use
- - Our custom CRM to manage your website hosting. This is a basic system which monitors your website's version number and the version numbers for plugins/add-ons. This allows us to upgrade it for you when a new CMS or plugin/add-on version is available. We store your name and email address here so that we can contact you in relation to upgrades.
Processing Data on behalf of you
We may occasionally need to process personal data collected by you, in order to fullfil our obligations to you. Under these circumstances:
- - Data will not be collected or processed for any other reason other than those necessary for us to fulfil our duties to you.
- - If any data must be transferred between you and us, it will be encrypted.
- - We will not retain any personal data collected by you for any longer than is required to fulfil our duties to you. Deletion is subject to our data deletion policy (see below)
Real world example: As an agency, we may need to write custom code to export data from a database which you have collected personal data in, for you to process. Data we export may be be visible to the developer working on the project, but is limited to only those who need to see it to perform their task. We will transfer this data to you encrypted, and delete the export data in line with our deletion policy.
Toasted Digital takes security seriously. We:
- - Have a secure by design password manager. Passwords are shared internally on a need to know basis only. Passwords are encrypted using AES256 bit encryption with PBKDF2 SHA256, 4096 iterations.
- - Have an internal password policy for limiting the spread of password data.
- - Require all of our devices have as much security as possible. This includes computer encryption where compatible, password protection and 2-factor auth where available.
- - Have 2 Factor Auth set up on any third party services where possible.
- - Have SSL on our website.
- - Have offices in a secure managed building.
- - Have reviewed the security of our third-party services. Please see the above GDPR commitment links under "Data Processors."

- - Hosting any gambling content
- - Hosting mass mail out software
We'll always reach out to you to see if we can help and assist in any way in making sure you adhere to our terms of service.
