Who are we?

Twofold Ltd was formed in August 2000, following a management buy-out of the Document Security and Forms Handling Division of Checkpoint Security Services Ltd, but Twofold Ltd’s heritage in managing documents dates all the way back to 1858 with the formation of J. Sloper and Co.
Over the last 17 years we have become the leading independent supplier and maintainer of document management software and mailing equipment in the UK, enjoying steady growth and stability throughout that time.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with software 128 Bit encryption on SSL.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.
