We are fully GDPR Compliant

As financial documents naturally deal with confidential information regarding a company or individual’s finances, they are particularly prone to security breaches and fraud. This only emphasises the importance of storing financial documents in specialised storage facilities where you can rest assured that they are in the safest possible hands but still easily retrieved.

At Flexible Storage, we provide professional archiving services for businesses in the financial sector. All of your confidential documents – from client information to tax records – will be securely stored in our archiving facility in water and fireproof containers under 24 hour CCTV surveillance.

Secure Destruction

Within the financial sector, having confidence in the secure destruction of your sensitive documents is just as important as their secure storage. Once your financial documents exceed their term of retention or are just no longer useful to your business, it’s imperative that they are safely and confidentially destroyed. As a financial organisation, it is your legal responsibility to ensure the destruction of any confidential waste in order to comply with the GDPR data protection act.

At Flexible Storage, we can securely transfer any of your unwanted files to our fully licensed partner shredding company where full certification is issued after every destruction. This way, you can ensure your unwanted financial data and documents have been professionally destroyed, keeping you fully compliant with data protection laws. Financial data and records management has never been easier or more secure!
