Future Shredding Workplace Policy
At Future Shredding, we are committed to maintaining the privacy and security of our clients’ sensitive information. This workplace policy outlines the procedures and guidelines that all employees must follow in order to ensure that our clients’ confidential information is securely destroyed and disposed of.
Responsibility for Information Security:
All employees of Future Shredding are responsible for the security of confidential information in their possession. This includes taking appropriate measures to prevent unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or destruction of confidential information. Employees must also report any suspected breaches of security to management immediately.
Secure Destruction of Confidential Information:
Confidential information must be securely destroyed when it is no longer required for business purposes. This includes all paper documents, digital files, and any other physical or electronic records that contain confidential information.
All confidential information must be destroyed using an on-site shredding service provided by a reputable and accredited shredding company.
Statistical Importance of Shredding:
ID theft has become an increasingly common issue in recent years, with millions of individuals having their personal and financial information compromised each year. Studies have shown that a significant number of ID theft cases occur as a result of unsecured disposal of confidential information, such as throwing away paper documents or failing to properly erase digital files.
By using a reputable on-site shredding service, companies can significantly reduce the risk of their clients’ information falling into the wrong hands. This not only helps to protect their clients’ privacy and financial security, but it also helps to maintain the company’s reputation and credibility.
Invoice and Payment:
Invoices for our on-site shredding services will be sent to the email address specified by the client at the conclusion of the service requested. If the email bounces, we will attempt to contact the client by other means. Payments are due and payable upon the client’s receipt of our invoice, according to the terms of our contract.
If payment is not received in our office within the terms of the invoice due date, we will send the client an email reminder. We reserve the right to add a 1.5% late payment fee to the invoice and to charge a flat fee to defray the costs associated with collecting late payments.
In the event that the client refuses to pay or does not respond to our emails, we will make every effort to collect the debt. As agreed upon in our contract, all costs incurred associated with collecting the debt, including attorneys’ fees and court costs, will be paid by the client.
Extra Charge Policy:
Although we do not believe in “nickel-and-diming” our clients, sometimes extra charges are necessary. We have a couple of extra charges that we may have to pass on to the client’s invoice, including media shredding for non-paper materials and disposal fees, rental fees for rented bins or abandoned equipment, pickup fees for non-accessible accounts, and a 3-6% cost of living increase that may be applied to rolled over contracts.
By following the procedures and guidelines outlined in this workplace policy, employees of Future Shredding can help to ensure the secure destruction and disposal of confidential information. This will help to maintain the privacy and security of our clients and to protect the reputation of our company.
