Additional information

How we protect your data

The site has an Administrator who is a Member of the Sorigny Twinning Committee. Currently the Administrator is the only person using access to the site for maintenance, news and updates and a deputy is being sought for obvious security and future updates in the event of unavailabilty .

What data breach procedures we have in place?

The site is secured through both the host Internet Service Provider (ISP) OVH and approved WordPress software. The likelihood of data breach is low since the site is purely charitable in nature and no commercial activity is undertaken. In addition the site is regularly viewed by the Administrator and Committee Members from both Sorigny and Box as are all the private emails between members of the Committees: in the event of any data breach the site can be temporarily closed and restored from the most recent back up created monthly automatically using Updraft Plus and stored on the Admnistrator’s Google Drive.

What third parties we receive data from

Occasionally some information is made available from other related Associations of the villages concerned with twinning. ‘Patrimoine de Sorigny’ and the Association de Fêtes (for full list see http://mairie-sorigny.com/?cat=13).
