Website domain names

We collect and store the domain names of any websites that you wish to be managed by PressUP.

Website data files

We create backup copies of your website files and database daily and store them for a time determined by your package.

Website account and sever access

To allow us to set up the PressUP service on your website we will need a user account with Administrator privileges. We will never update the content of your website without your express written permission and you can delete our user account at any time.

We will also require FTP, sFTP or SSH login details for your server so that we can configure our services and to allow us to maintain your site. These can also be revoked at any time.

If you choose a package that includes a WordPress firewall, we may require access to your domain administration account to configure this service.

Payment information

If you choose to pay by PayPal or GoCardless you will be sent a link to the secure payment gateway from the provider, where it will be collected and stored securely. We do not have direct access to your payment information.


We use “cookies” to collect information and improve our website services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your device. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to take full advantage of all aspects of the website.

How we use your information

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and do not share your information with anyone except to provide you with support, protect our rights or unless we are required to by law.

Administration and support

Email information is used for the purposes of site log-in and administration and for the provision of support services in response to a request via the site feedback form.

On your request we may access website backup files as part of our support services, however this is limited to viewing or copying the backup zip-file itself and will never include modifying the file or accessing the backup file content.

Trusted service providers

We use Amazon S3 to provide our data storage service. You can find more information on Amazon’s data security from the S3 site.

We use Sucuri for security hardening and protection.

We use WP Remote to administer WordPress core, theme and plugin updates. Their security policy is available on their website.

If you wish to change or delete any of the information that we hold, please email and our records will be amended as quickly as possible.

We will retain your information for as long as your subscription is active or as needed to provide you services. If you cancel your subscription all backup data files held from that site will be deleted within 24 hours. If you wish to cancel your subscription or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, please email and your information will be deleted quickly upon request.


We are committed to ensuring that your information and data is secure. Any information we collect from you will be stored in an encrypted system. Website backups are stored on Amazon Web Services’ S3 storage platform, which is secured by 256 bit AES encryption.

Business Transfer

If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of that transaction, but we will notify you by email of any change in control or use of your personal information or files, or if either become subject to a different privacy policy. We will also notify you of choices you may have regarding the information we hold.
