GDPR (General Data Privacy Regulation)

An important part of data protection is to ensure that no personal data is held beyond the time at which you have a good business reason to hold that data.   As part of our updates ahead of GDPR, we have been looking at how to make compliance easier for our customers.  A new feature that we are offering is the ability for you to set a time period after which data will automatically be erased from the system.

If you would like this activated for your organisation please contact our support team to discuss further.

Please note:  we will continue to store all your data securely until you request deletion.

Adverse Media on Companies:

Additional rule added for adverse media on Companies (change request 6141)

We can now offer Adverse Media checks on Companies: data will be shown on the negative data tab of the search results.  


There is a new rule:

1628 - Possible adverse media for [company name].  Please check negative data tab


If you would like this activated please contact our support team to discuss further.

Quick Search Function for Companies:

Status Field (change request 6165)

Quick search function for companies now displays results for Dormant/Inactive companies.  The Company status will be displayed on-screen on the results page and made visible to the user.

Police Action Fraud Alerts:


The feed of Police Action Fraud Alerts, temporarily unavailable since October 2017 has resumed and so all alerts issued by Action Fraud will appear in the News section of the Welcome page..

General Database Enhancements:

We have made some changes to improve performance and responsiveness to searches.

  Removal of MD5 Signature Value 

The MD5 signature value is no longer used, so is being removed from the webservice information on Contego.   Instead, the Access Key value should be used in API calls.
