Your hardware / network support team would be able to elaborate on your internal procedures for you.

For Red Business Systems supported clients, in the event that we need to take a copy of your data away to investigate a support issue, we will specifically ask for your permission to do so on a case by case basis. The data will transferred using only secure channels. We would delete your data entirely from our systems or online data transfer service as soon as we’re finished with the support enquiry that required us to take the data. On some of these occasions it may be necessary to send your data to Sage UK Limited for Sage systems or our other software suppliers for users of other software packages. Again, we will specifically ask for your permission to do this, and our suppliers would also delete your data as soon as the individual support case had been resolved for you.
