Village Internet takes the subject of personal data very seriously.
We often get asked to recycle PCs, Laptops or other computing equipment that could contain personal data. Village Internet cleans all devices prior to recycling, re-use or disposal, or where it is no longer functioning, ensuring it is rendered harmless.
As part of Quality Management System, all hard drives are low-level formatted with an all-zeros pattern to ensure all data is overwritten. We also label each device (see label below) immediately afterwards so that we can confirm the operation has been completed successfully on that device.
