One of the first questions you ask your moving company is how will they use your information. A legitimate business will have that information available online but can print you a paper copy of it too. For example, when hiring our interstate moving companies Miami you’ll need to leave some personal information. However, for no reason should you leave personal and sensitive information that we don’t strictly ask for. Some companies might use some of your information for marketing and other purposes but be sure that no legitimate company will ever misuse your data.
Can your information be in circulation?
After the moving company takes your data you can ask them what they will use and how they will use your info. In some cases, there can come the distribution of your information to others. However, that’s only internally or in a case of a legal dispute where information is required from us. For example, if you use our local movers in Miami and there comes to a dispute we are obligated to share your information in case of an inquiry by the legal system.
Usually, after a period of time, the moving company will delete your information by themselves. Especially if your data isn’t needed for that specific purpose you gave it to them. Depending on which company you deal with the time before that automated deletion may vary. For example, if you use our long distance movers in Miami they can hold on to your information for 6 months while others will keep it for years. You can always request for the removal of your information, however only after some time of your last contact with the moving company.
Know your rights
Whenever you leave your information and data know that you have rights. Those vary from the right to access to erasure. Above all, it’s important that you make sure you fully understand the rights you hold. For a bigger picture, you can consult the guide to privacy laws in the US as a way to get to know more about the process of collecting your data and why it’s so important to have it to your right to ask for its removal.
