Ensuring Security and Compliance with InfoTime as a Hosted Solution

Created by Dylan Marriott, Modified on Thu, 23 Mar 2023 at 02:26 AM by Dylan Marriott


At Clocking Systems, we offer our customers two options for running their InfoTime software: they can choose to install it on-premise, or they can opt for our hosted solution. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of choosing our hosted solution, including the robust security measures we've put in place to protect your data and ensure compliance with data protection laws. Our hosted solution provides a worry-free, scalable, and secure option that lets you focus on running your business instead of worrying about the security of your data and manging another server. So, let's dive into the measures we've implemented to make sure your data is safe and sound on our servers.


Partnering with Hetzner for a Compliant and Secure Hosted Solution

When you choose our hosted solution for your InfoTime software, your data is in good hands with our trusted hosting provider, Hetzner. Based in Germany, Hetzner operates under strict EU data protection laws and GDPR regulations, providing an extra layer of security and privacy for your data. We're proud to partner with Hetzner to offer our customers a reliable and compliant hosting solution.

To learn more about Hetzner's privacy policy and terms and conditions, visit their website at https://www.hetzner.com/legal/privacy-policy and https://www.hetzner.com/legal/terms-and-conditions, respectively. With our hosting solution, you can rest assured that your data is protected by robust security measures and strict compliance with data protection and security laws in Germany.

UK Data Privacy Laws and GDPR Compliance

As a UK-based company, we are also required to adhere to GDPR and UK data privacy laws. These regulations ensure that your data is handled responsibly and securely, further enhancing the protection of your information when using our hosted solution.

Server Security and Access Control

To ensure the security of our hosted solution, we use a secure portal that requires two-factor authentication (2FA) for access. This portal is only accessible to authorized staff members, ensuring that your data is protected from unauthorized access.

In addition, all actions taken within the control panel are logged to provide a comprehensive audit trail of activities. This logging system enables you to track who accessed your data, what changes were made, and when they were made. With this level of transparency and accountability, you can be confident that your data is being managed responsibly and securely.


To ensure the security of our servers and your data, we apply a firewall to all servers hosting our software. This means that only ports 443 and 80 are externally accessible, as our software is web-based.

In addition to this, we can further enhance the security of your access by locking down our Firewall so that only specific IP addresses can connect to the web server. This added layer of security ensures that only authorized personnel can access our software and your data.

We also offer additional security measures free of charge, such as Cloudflare Web Application Firewall (WAF) and DDOS Protection. If you're interested in these services or would like to discuss further securing your access to our software, please contact our support team at help@clockingsystems.co.uk. We're here to help you protect your data and provide the best possible support experience.

Domain Name and SSL Certificate Protection

To provide an added layer of protection against Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks, we offer domain name and SSL certificate protection for our software by default. This ensures that all communication between your browser and our server is encrypted and secure, protecting your sensitive data from interception by malicious third parties.

When you purchase our software, we will apply a domain name and SSL certificate to your instance to ensure that your data is fully protected. This provides you with peace of mind knowing that your data is secure, and that you're getting the best possible protection against potential security threats.


At Clocking Systems, we understand the importance of data backups in the event of server failure. That's why we have implemented routine server backups to ensure that your data is safe and secure, and that you can get back to using our software as quickly as possible in the event of an unforeseen server outage. Additionally, we have strict data retention policies in place to ensure that your data is always available to you when you need it most.


Your data security is of utmost importance to us. By hosting your InfoTime solution with Clocking Systems, you can trust that we've implemented strong security measures to protect your information and ensure compliance with GDPR and other data protection laws.
