Understanding how we process, store, and deliver your videos
Last updated 10th January 2021
All staff (including our delivery staff) are DBS checked. No one will come into contact with your tapes or photographs or work for us in any capacity unless he / she has an up-to-date DBS certificate. For more information, see the DBS website.
Video (data) storage
We keep copies of all transfers for a minimum of 60 days, unless you instruct us not to do so. This copy is kept on our secure systems for quick retrieval in the event you detect any issues with your items while checking your transfers post-collection, or incase your transfers are lost in return transit, or incase you need to order any extra copies.
Mobile phone to DVD/Blu-ray – If using our secure file upload facility then a copy of your files are stored on a 3rd party service (files.fm). They are stored securely for up to 30 days on files.fm servers before being deleted by us. We do retain a copy on our own internal server for a minimum of 120 days after handing over the DVD/Blu-ray to you, unless you instruct us not to do so. This copy is temporarily kept on our system for quick retrieval in the event you detect any issues with your items while checking your transfers post-collection, or incase your transfers are lost in transit, or incase you need to order any extra copies.
Encryption – Any time a video is retained on our own systems, it is stored on an encrypted hard drive. For the techies out there, we use XTS-AES-128 encryption with a 256-bit key – Apple FileVault (2). For the non-techies, this means that your footage cannot be accessed by anyone without a very, very long password.
Once your tapes are brought into our building, they are immediately labelled (First Name/Surname/Tape 1 of X) and then placed in their own box, separating them from any other tapes.
As all transfers are completed on site, no tapes will ever leave our building.
Unless we have already been informed, on occasions adult material is identified on tapes we will simply add a removable warning sticker to your DVD/USB case prompting you to check the contents before viewing/sharing. Unless the material is illegal, then we have no issue in transferring the contents for you.
You retain all copyright of your tapes.
