Website

SimonEscapes’ website host, GloverSure, stores basic server access logs for debugging, security and service review (not marketing). They also store website information in a segregated database which they have access to in order to perform maintenance and occasional debugging. They may create additional log files for debugging and testing purposes. These will exist for as long as the files are needed and are deleted straight after. They typically do not back up these types of file.
