Receipts, business cards and other documents are important records of your daily life and business and we are fully dedicated and 100% committed to the safety and security of your information. From day one security has been Shoeboxed’s highest priority and our entire application has been designed to keep your data protected.
In fact, we believe that in many ways it is safer to store your documents on Shoeboxed.com than it is to keep them in your home or office. Here’s why:
- When you begin using Shoeboxed, the new permanent home of your receipts and business cards becomes your account on shoeboxed.com, where you can view your documents from any Internet-connected computer. The connection between your Internet browser and shoeboxed.com is secured by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption, the exact same encryption used by online banks and medical information services. This makes it virtually impossible for anyone to intercept and/or make sense of communication being passed between your computer and our servers. Additionally, all of our networks are being monitored 24/7 and will immediately alert us of any activity that it believes could be compromising or insecure in any way.
- In addition to SSL, Shoeboxed has been certified by TRUSTe, the trusted leader on online privacy and security. A nonprofit organization, TRUSTe promotes solid security practices on the Internet. After investigating our privacy policies and our practices securing your personal data, TRUSTe has certified Shoeboxed as a site that protects your privacy and continually checks our website to ensure that we are adhering to the privacy policies outlined below.
- To protect against hardware failure or natural disaster, our servers are backed up to an undisclosed remote location every 24 hours. In the unlikely event of a catastrophe, we are equipped to have the most recent backup of the site up and running on new servers within five business days. Unlike physical copies of receipts and business cards, which can be lost, thrown away, or destroyed, in Shoeboxed all of your data is always backed up in multiple places and will be available to you anytime, anywhere.
Receipt Mail-In Security
While your receipts and business cards are in transit, they are subject to the security policies of the U.S. Postal Service (or whatever carrier you use to expedite them). Once we receive them, an authorized Shoeboxed team member will retrieve them from the USPS bring them directly to our processing facilities. All of our employees are subject to background checking before we hire them, and all employees closely supervised and highly trained.
Our offices are protected by a 24/7 security service. Though we are part of a lively, pedestrian friendly area of Durham, we are the only people with access to our operations facility. Our offices are also protected with digital locks, key-card access and double locks again to our processing facilities.
