You're data is in safe hands with us. We safeguard your data across a number of platforms. You're information is secure across our network of computer systems with Microsoft Intune Policies, Cliniko, Active Directory, Microsoft Defender & Bitlocker.


The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) came into force on 25 May 2018. 

The new Regulation aims to standardise data protection laws and processing across the EU, giving people greater rights to access and control their personal information. 

Our Commitment 

Taylor organisation Ltd, T/AS FOOT CARE, are committed to ensuring protection of all personal information that we hold, and to provide and to protect all such data. We recognise our obligations in updating and expanding this program to meet the requirements of GDPR. 

Taylor organisation Ltd, T/AS FOOT CARE, Partners & affiliates are dedicated to safeguarding the personal information under our control and in maintaining a system that meets our obligations under the regulations. Our practice is summarised below. 


Practitioners trust Cliniko with the safe-keeping of millions of confidential client records every day. Security isn’t just fine-print for us: it’s a central feature and shapes every decision we make. 

Ultra-secure facilities 

Cliniko is hosted in state-of-the-art datacenter facilities. Physical access is controlled at the perimeter and building entry points by professional security staff using video surveillance, intrusion detection systems, and other electronic means. 

High availability 

We use datacentre facilities that are built in clusters. In case of failure, automated processes move customer data traffic away from the affected area and into other sites that are functioning properly. It all occurs behind the scenes, and you won’t even notice when it’s happening. 


Whenever your data is sent between us & Cliniko, it’s encrypted using HTTPS (end-to-end encryption). We use a 2048-bit SSL certification for encryption in transit. All data is also encrypted at rest and backed up daily, using the industry-standard AES-256 encryption algorithm. 

Here’s what it means: all data shared between you and Cliniko is transmitted and stored securely. No one can read the information except for you and us. Plus, Cliniko refresh your backup every day to make sure it stays current. In addition to Cliniko; your data may be stored with Microsoft, Microsoft Azure or our web hosting partner such as goDaddy.

Accreditations and Certifications 

We choose our partners carefully. Cliniko hosting partner, Amazon Web Services (AWS), has achieved the following accreditations and certifications: 

· PCI DSS Level 1 (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) 

· ISO 27001 (Information Security Management System) 

24/7/365 Monitoring 

Cliniko is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If something goes wrong, we’ll be the first to know about it, and our team will jump into action straight away—no matter when it happens! 


Cliniko data is backed up daily. Backups are redundantly stored in multiple physical locations. Data is also constantly streamed to replica databases for up to the second redundancy. 

In other words, we’ve got backups for your backups and a contingency in place to handle any potential interruptions to the storage process. Don’t forget that you can also export your data at any time and create your own backups too.

Microsoft Intune can help you keep your managed devices secure and up to date while helping you to protect your organization's data from compromised devices. Data protection includes controlling what users do with an organization's data on both managed and unmanaged devices. Data protection also extends to blocking access to data from devices that might be compromised.

This article highlights many of Intune's built-in capabilities and partner technologies you can integrate with Intune. As you learn more about them, you can bring several together for more comprehensive solutions on your journey towards a zero-trust environment.

From the Microsoft Intune admin centre, Intune supports managed devices that run Android, iOS/iPad, Linux, macOS, and Windows 10 and Windows 11.

When you use Configuration Manager to manage on-premises devices, you can extend Intune policies to those devices by configuring tenant attach or co-management.

Intune can also work with information from devices that you manage with third-party products that provide device compliance and mobile threat protection.

Protect devices through policies

Deploy Intune's endpoint security, device configuration, and device compliance policies to configure devices to meet your organizations security goals. Policies support one or more profiles, which are the discrete sets of platform-specific rules you deploy to groups of enrolled devices.

  • With endpoint security policies, deploy security focused policies that are designed to help you focus on the security of your devices and mitigate risk. The available tasks can help you identify at-risk devices, to remediate those devices, and restore them to a compliant or more secure state.

  • With device configuration policies, manage profiles that define the settings and features that devices use in your organization. Configure devices for endpoint protection, provision certificates for authentication, set software update behaviors, and more.

  • With device compliance policies, you create profiles for different device platforms that establish device requirements. Requirements can include operating system versions, the use of disk encryption, or being at or under specific threat levels as defined by threat management software.

    Intune can safeguard devices that aren't compliant with your policies and alert the device user so they can bring the device into compliance.

    When you add Conditional Access to the mix, configure policies that allow only compliant devices to access your network and organization's resources. Access restrictions can include file shares and company email. Conditional Access policies also work with the device state data reported by third-party device compliance partners you integrate with Intune.

Following are a few of the security settings and tasks you can manage through available policies:

  • Device encryption – Manage BitLocker on Windows 10 devices, and FileVault on macOS.

  • Authentication methods – Configure how your devices authenticate to your organization's resources, email, and applications.

    • Use certificates for authentication to applications, your organization's resources, and for signing and encryption of email using S/MIME. You can also set up derived credentials when your environment requires the use of smartcards.

    • Configure settings that help limit risk, like:

      • Require multi-factor-authentication (MFA) to add an extra layer of authentication for users.

      • Set PIN and password requirements that must be met before gaining access to resources.

      • Enable Windows Hello for Business for Windows 10 devices.

  • Virtual private networks (VPNs) – With VPN profiles, assign VPN settings to devices so they can easily connect to your organization's network. Intune supports several VPN connection types and apps that include both built-in capabilities for some platforms and both first and third-party VPN apps for devices.

  • Software updates – Manage how and when devices get software updates. The following are supported:

    • Android firmware updates:

    • iOS - Manage device operating system versions, and when devices check for and install updates.

    • macOS - Manage software updates for macOS devices that enrolled as supervised devices.

    • Windows 10, you can manage the Windows Update experience for devices. You can configure when devices scan or install updates, hold a set of your managed devices at specific feature versions, and more.

  • Security baselines – Deploy security baselines to establish a core security posture on your Windows 10 devices. Security baselines are preconfigured groups of Windows settings that come recommended by the relevant product teams. You can use baselines as provided or edit instances of them to meet your security goals for targeted groups of devices.

Protect data through policies

Intune-managed apps and Intune's app protection policies can help stop data leaks and keep your organization's data safe. These protections can apply to devices that are enrolled with Intune and to devices that aren't.

  • Intune-managed apps (or managed apps for short), are apps that have been integrated with the Intune App SDK or wrapped by the Intune App Wrapping Tool. These apps can be managed using Intune app protection policies. To view a list of publicly available managed apps, see Intune protected apps.

    Users can use managed apps to work with both your organization's data, and their own personal data. However, when app protection policies require the use of a managed app, the managed app is the only app that can be used to access your organization's data. App protection rules don't apply to a user's personal data.

  • App protection policies are rules that ensure an organization's data remains safe or contained in a managed app. The rules identify the managed app that must be used and define what can be done with the data while the app is in use.

The following are examples of protections and restrictions you can set with app protection policies and managed apps:

  • Configure app-layer protections, like requiring a PIN to open an app in a work context.

  • Control the sharing of an organization's data between apps on a device, like blocking copy and paste, or screen captures.

  • Prevent the saving of your organization's data to personal storage locations.

Use device actions to protect devices and data

From the Microsoft Intune admin centre, you can run device actions that help keep a selected device protected. You can run a subset of these actions as bulk device actions to affect multiple devices at the same time. And several remote actions from Intune can also be used with co-managed devices.

Device actions aren't policy and take effect a single time when invoked. They apply either immediately if the device is accessible on-line, or when the device next boots up or checks in with Intune. Considered these actions as supplemental to the use of policies that configure and maintain security configurations for a population of devices.

Following are examples of actions you can run that help secure devices and data:

Devices managed by Intune:

  • BitLocker key rotation (Windows only)

  • Disable Activation Lock (iOS only)

  • Full or Quick scan (Windows 10 only)

  • Remote lock

  • Retire (which removes your organization's data from the device while leaving personal data intact)

  • Update Microsoft Defender Security Intelligence

  • Wipe (factory reset the device, removing all data, apps, and settings)
