g) Data Storage, Encryption and Server Hosting (DP)

This website is running on a Linux shared server, we have access to the server files and databases of this website by using Plesk Onyx or via FTP/sFTP. The files and the domain name service were hired by us to DhapCenter S.L. and we’re currently using CloudFlare as our CDN and as our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). A CDN is essentially a network of geographically dispersed servers. Each CDN node (also called Edge Servers) caches the static content of a site like the images, CSS/JS files and other structural components. The majority of an end-user’s page load time is spent on retrieving this content, and so it makes sense to provide these “building blocks” of a site in as many server nodes as possible, distributed throughout the world. That means that the files of our website will be sent to your browser from different countries all around the world to make it faster for you. You can find more information about what CDNs are right here.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a server and a client—typically a web server (website) and a browser, or a mail server and a mail client (e.g., Outlook). SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text—leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping, but that will not happen if we’re using SSL because the connection is encrypted, that means that browsing through our website your informaiton is encrypted from our servers to your browser and vice-versa. You can find further information about Secure Sockets Layers right here.
