CSV stands for 'Comma Separated Values', and is a way to easily import and export data between computer systems. A template of the CSV file format can be downloaded from the web portal.

We make all data collected available to you so that you can export data into your systems for billing, auditing, updating etc.

All data is stored and backed up in a highly secure hosting facility. No customer or user has direct access to the data or databases. vinDELIVER is hosted at www.rackspace.com, a world leader in cloud and managed hosting services.
