We Take Security Seriously. We understand that your mail is valuable to you, and this section outlines some of the steps we take to guard against unauthorized access to your mail or to other data you provide us with.
Digital Security. Because our Service can allow you to access your mail virtually, we employ industry standard organizational, procedural, and technical safeguards to secure data in our possession, consistent with the sensitivity level of such data. As a part of this, we protect your information, including electronic copies of your mail, by implementing digital security measures including encryption, firewalls, and SSL technology. However, regardless of the precautions we take, no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure. It may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or access transmissions or private communications unlawfully.
Physical Security. Because you can allow us to access the pieces of mail addressed to you, we take a number of precautions to maintain your documents’ safety with us. Our processing facilities are secured, we use industry-standard document shredding and destruction methods, and our staff with access to User Mail is screened prior to joining our team. We take these steps to maintain security for items which may contain sensitive data. However, as with information sent over the internet, no security measure is completely perfect, and it may be possible for third parties not under our control to intercept or otherwise compromise information intended to be kept secure.
Responsibility. We strive to protect your information and we agree to take the security steps above to prevent unauthorized access to your mail. However, we cannot ensure or warrant perfect security, and we are not responsible for the loss of any mail, monetary instruments, or any other data you grant us access to.
