Safe Shredding and Data Protection
Is your data safe?
Our shredding services, including paper shredding and data destruction, comply with the Data Protection Act (1998). An ever-increasing amount of material is considered confidential and has to be disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way. Documents such as memo’s or printed emails with a simple name and a telephone number are considered confidential and must be disposed of in a secure and professional manner. The Data Protection Agency can now prosecute if a company is in breach of these rules. Shred Pro’s on-site shredding and recycling services can help.
