FAQ & Disclaimer

What happens to my data?

We collect devices containing personal data and strive to eliminate all data through secure erasure or factory reset methods. Our standard operating procedure for secure erasure, aligned with Department of Defense protocols, involves three passes to ensure complete data overwrite and security.

Why do you not provide Certificates of Destruction (CoDs)?

We provide this service at a charge of $25 per device requiring erasure. This fee covers the creation of a ticket, thorough documentation, and outlining of the course of action, as well as the issuance of a certificate to validate the completion of services. Regardless of payment or non-payment, the erasure process remains consistent; however, for non-paid erasures, devices are grouped together and erased randomly, based on factors such as make and model.
