Using Third Party Web based systems


Be very careful when using third party web based systems and be aware of their strengths and limitations.

While they may be convenient for access by end users there is the caveat that they are open to inspection and attack from anywhere on the world.

Consider that if you store your customers data in 'The Cloud' then you are responsible for its security and not the service supplier. Under the new GDPR regulations you are solely responsible if it goes wrong. You must therefore go the the Nth degree to ensure total security. 99.9% simply will not do. Your supplier is likely to disclaim all responsibility in the event of an issue and their total liability may be to refund your payments.

If you decide to stop using the system then is there a facility for you to download all the data? Is it in a form that you can make use of? Is the data inaccessible the moment you stop making payments. Effectively, is all your data 'lost'? What are the implications if this occurs?

Where is the data actually located? It could be on a server anywhere in the world and may come under the jurisdiction of another country.
