Data Protection and Security

Let us put your mind at rest

We are committed to security and protection of our user’s data and regularly review best working practices and developments in data security. We ensure our software is developed and presented to our users using the most up-to-date developments in data security and protection available.

Arb Pro understands the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our customer's data is vital to their success on a daily basis, and that's why we use the best web servers, data encryption, password protection and general security measures available to protect the privacy of our users data.

Here are some commonly asked questions and answers in relation to data management and data protection.....

Does storage of my data on Arb Pro allow me to meet the requirements of the EU Data Protection Directive?

The requirements of the EU Data Protection Directive have been implemented in different ways in each EU member state. So, for example, in the UK the Directive has been implemented through the Data Protection Act 1998 and in Germany through the Federal Data Protection Act. The law that applies to you will generally be that of the EU country in which you are resident or, if you are a business, in which you are established.

However one common thread is that responsibility for complying with the Directive rests with the data controller. As you are the data controller in respect of personal data you store on Arb Pro, it is your responsibility to ensure compliance with the data protection law of your home country.

In order to make an assessment of whether Arb Pro allows you to meet the requirements of your local data protection laws, we recommend that you carry out a simple risk analysis. As a starting point, The UK Commissioner's Office has produced a useful Code of Practice that provides a helpful list of questions (at page 30) that a data controller should ask in assessing the credentials of any provider of internet-based services.

Answers to the following questions will help you complete a risk analysis for yourself or your organisation. We do so with the firm belief that Arb Pro is well placed to protect the personal data that you entrust to us in accordance with your local data protection law.

Will you only process data in accordance with my instructions?

Your data is confidential to you. We have no access to user passwords or accounts, so we cannot login to your Arb Pro account and cannot process any data without your permission (for example you may choose to add a temporary user to help us to solve a question you have).

Where are your servers and the personal data we store hosted?

Our servers and the personal data you store are hosted at secure data centers located in the United Kingdom.

How secure is the personal data I store on Arb Pro?

All information which passes between our servers and your computer is encrypted using technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Go to https://cloud.arbprosoftware.com/Account/Login.aspx and click on the padlock symbol to view our data encryption certificate.

No-one has access to your account unless you invite them. Each user you invite has a username and password for signing in.

It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer by clicking Account > Log out on the top right hand side of the Arb Pro window.

You may also choose to share your account data with other applications. You should apply the same assessment to any application or 3rd party which you grant access to in this way.

Can I access my data regularly?

We aim to make Arb Pro available 24/7 and you can securely access your data at a time and place convenient to you through a PC, Mac, iPad or iPhone. We also provide the ability to export your contacts to CSV Excel
