About us

 

Taclus specialises in providing a professional data destruction and shredding service. Our trusted processes ensure that our customers comply with data protection legislation (including GDPR) and with environmental regulations.

 

Client, employee and confidential business information is treated with respect and kept secure at all times. Through our responsive, flexible and efficient service Taclus delivers the most secure and efficient confidential information destruction service in the industry.

 

Based in the heart of Cardiff’s industrial and commercial centre, we serve clients across south Wales, the west and south west of England with our own vehicles, and across the UK through our network of approved partners.

 

Trust in our service is based on our rigorous internationally recognised standards, ISO 9001:2015, EN:15713 and ISO 14001:2015.

 

Our service is shaped to meet the needs of the market. Unlike many confidential shredding companies, we do not have high call-out charges, hidden costs for paperwork or undisclosed and unfair contract terms. We create an open and transparent relationship with our customers that gives them peace of mind in the knowledge that not only is their data in safe hands, they are getting the best value for money with no unexpected extra charges.

Why us?

 

  1. Convenience. We make life easier for organisations spending valuable business time using their own shredders and disposing of their waste.
  2. Cost. We provide a cheaper, more efficient service than large national shredding companies, with no large call-out costs or large minimum collection quantities. 
  3. Flexibility. We provide a wide range of shredding services and collection options to meet all needs.

Why shred?

 

  • To avoid identity theft
  • To ensure security and compliance
  • To save time and money

 

Every business has sensitive information that needs secure destruction. Such as customer lists, client information, receipts, personnel and payroll records. Both customers and employees have the legal right to have this information protected. So all businesses will, at some point, have to dispose of confidential information.

Every business has a legal responsibility to dispose of confidential information securely. Disposal of information through recycling or trash puts individuals at risk of identity theft. One of the world’s fastest growing crimes. Even though we live in a digital age, most identity theft occurs through hard copy sources.

What should you shred?

 

Documents that contain sensitive personal data such as:

 

  • Date of Birth
  • Telephone numbers
  • Addresses
  • Signatures
  • Account numbers
  • Social security numbers
  • Medical or legal information
