Why CircleIT?

CirclelT is a B Corp devoted to environmental and social impact. While data security remains at the core of everything we do, we yearn for a more circular economy. After secure data erasure, every device we receive goes through a rigorous repair, refurbishment, and parts harvesting operation to ensure it’s given the greatest chance of reuse.

    We’ll send you a confirmation email which includes your username, password and a link to complete your remote erasure as well as the QR Code for shipping.

How is my data protected when I Circle My Device?

All data is erased according to NIST 800-88 standards. CircleIT is NAID AAA Certified and 3rd Party audited several times a year, ensuring we don’t just “Talk the Talk”, but “Walk the Walk” and let independent auditors verify it. In over 20 years of business, we have processed over 10 Million pieces of technology and have never had a data breach, earning the trust of some of the top Fortune 5 companies in the world to trust us with their entire device disposal programs.

 

At no time during the process is any customer data viewed or even accessed. It is simply erased.

What is the Automated Self-Erasure add on?

We want to enable all of our customers to achieve complete data security, whether you are tech savvy or not. Our Automated Self-Erasure add on is a one-click automated solution to completely erase an entire device prior to that device ever leaving your hands. With just one-click and about a 20 minute end-to-end process, you’re able to permanently erase data from your windows-based laptop and desktop computers.  We are working on developing Apple and Android based solutions as we speak.

    Choose your device under the “Erase your device before you send it in” section.

Why is CircleIT’s process better than just dropping my device off at a free collection?

There are many free device collection offerings but none that combine Sustainability, Security, Simplicity and Transparency into one seamless solution. As a B Corp committed to the Circular Economy and positive social impact, CircleIT ensures that NO device or any of its parts end up in landfills. (Not-So-Fun Fact: The global proper recycling rate for electronics is only 15%! CircleIT aims to change that by providing secure and responsible recycling methods for all individuals and businesses in need.)

  • Sustainable -> Better for the Environment

    Our customized packing procedures ensure each device is packed to preserve its quality and minimize risk of damage during transit, increasing its reusability. Transportation can be a large emitter of CO2 equivalents, and we ensure every device shipped to our facility is transported using carbon neutral methods.

  • Simple -> Cost Effective and Seamless

    $15 flat fee includes packaging, shipping, automated self-erasure and device processing.

  • Secure -> Enhanced Data Security

    Fewer touchpoints improve security, plus you can permanently erase your data before shipping using our automated self-erasure.

  • Transparent -> Customer Portal Hosting Certificates

    Every CircleIT user receives a unique login to our proprietary customer portal, TrackIT, where you can track your shipments at every step of the process and view Certificates of Data Cleansing and Environmental Impact after processing.

How safe is shipping an un-erased device to CircleIT?

We recognize that no shipping method is 100% secure and encourage our customers to Wipe or Encrypt their device prior to shipping. Our One-Click Automated Self-Erasure add on takes care of this, but we also offer free step-by-step instructions to secure all types of devices prior to shipping.

Additionally, we have taken the following steps to eliminate as much risk as possible during transportation:

  • A dedicated team of trained professionals monitor all of our shipments and provide us with transportation updates at every step of the process.
  • Our Drop Off model to secure FedEx Office Print and Ship locations removes multiple touchpoints from traditional pickup options. Your device is immediately packed in front of you by a trained professional and will be placed directly on the FedEx Truck for shipping that afternoon or the following morning depending on time of drop off.
  • We provide every customer with tracking details to keep them aware of where their device is at every moment.
  • We are exploring a GPS tracking add on for yet another layer of added risk mitigation.

Your Security is Our Top Priority.

Our remote erasure is currently only available on windows operating devices, but there are still ways to secure your data before you send in your device. Check out any of our free materials below for helpful tips
