About our Data Removal System

Data can be stored where you least expect it. While many of us realize the importance of making sure that the data on a used laptop or computer is wiped clean, there is also a chance that your photocopy machine, printer, or scanner has retained some of your valuable information. The truth is, identity thieves may be able to find your sensitive information stored on an old photocopier that you may have used, whether at home or at work. That’s why it is important to make sure that any time you or your business recycles these electronics, they are put through a proper data removal system.


At Vintage Tech, we use Blancco Data Erasure Software, which has met all strict guidelines for Common Criteria Certification. This certification means that it is safe to use the software for services whose data protection is extremely important, such as government bodies.


After undergoing rigorous testing, “Blancco has over ten national and international third party approvals, certifications and recommendations – the most in the industry,” according to a Blancco official. Thanks to them, we are able to make sure that all of your information stays private, and that when you recycle your old devices, your information is completely wiped clean.
