About Customer Privacy

In the past several years, businesses have made use of more and more personal data from customers. This results in paper and electronic waste: out-of-date, unneeded records that still contain sensitive information. Throwing these materials into the trash leaves the data vulnerable.

In order to prevent the abuse of this private information, federal and state governments have enacted laws that hold companies accountable for protecting their customers. As a document destruction company serving San Diego, Southern California Shredding helps businesses manage the flow of information and eliminate unneeded paper and electronic records.

California Law

In January 2001, California Assembly Bill 2246 mandated that “a business shall take all reasonable steps to destroy or arrange for the destruction of a customer’s records within its custody.” Among the remedies that a company can use is paper shredding. San Diego businesses that want to comply with the law often don’t have the equipment to handle bulk paper waste, however.

Fortunately, Southern California Shredding offers industrial-grade equipment that can destroy tons of paper and bindings within minutes. As a customer, you can expect a prompt response to your call for service, and you will find our technicians to be professional, courteous, and knowledgeable.

Federal Law

The federal government has several provisions dealing with private data.

  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) set standards for protecting healthcare information.
  • The Gramm-Leach Bliley Act—restricts the financial industry’s use and management of customer information.
  • The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) requires employers to destroy personal information about their employees if it was obtained from a credit report.

Southern California Shredding understands the many requirements that businesses face, and we help them stay compliant. Our trained technicians maintain control over documents from the moment we haul them from your facility until they reach our shredding truck, where they are immediately destroyed.

Our services also offer other benefits, including an eco-friendly process. The materials we shred are all recycled: over 100,000 pounds of paper per month. We also recycle materials such as cardboard, film, and x-rays.
