How secure is Alaska ZendTo?

All files are transferred across the network securely encrypted.

If you are sending personal or confidential data, tick "Encrypt every file" when creating a new drop-off. Then the passphrase you enter must be used when downloading the drop-off. The passphrase is not stored on Alaska ZendTo, and cannot be recovered if lost. No one can access the files without it.

All files uploaded and temporarily stored on Alaska ZendTo are held on equipment owned and operated at the The State's own Data Center.

All data is subject to the Data Protection regulations and laws of the The State and the country.

Alaska ZendTo is in no way a "cloud" service. Everything is stored (even temporarily) on equipment directly owned by the The State, and managed by its own IT staff.

All access to data is very tightly and strictly controlled by the The State. All accesses to data on Alaska ZendTo are logged and can be easily checked if you are ever concerned that a 3rd party might have gained access to your data.

Furthermore, uploaded data is held on Alaska ZendTo for a maximum of 4 days, after which time it is automatically deleted. When an uploaded file has been deleted, there is no way of recovering the file.

Retrieval of a drop-off by a recipient requires both the drop-off's Claim ID and Passcode. By extension, anyone who has both of these values may retrieve a drop-off.
When dropping off files, you can choose not to send either or both of these to the recipient automatically: you would then need to send that information by hand yourself. By extension, anyone with whom you have shared these values may share them with someone else.

Ultimately, the responsibilty for maintaining confidentiality of important information lies with the originator. To be sure your information remains secure you may encrypt it before dopping it off for someone to collect. Suggested methods include:
