Today’s concerns about security and privacy on the Internet are justified. This paper addresses these concerns as they relate to email communications and discusses how MyMailSM provides the best-in-class solution by drawing upon its patented and patent pending technologies.
Every day your personal details and private information are released to advertisers, market data collectors, snoopers and hackers without your knowledge. This makes you vulnerable to spam and identity theft. With MyMail's patented technology, these threats are eliminated. Simple to use and highly protective of your personal and private information, MyMail Technology understands that it’s your mail, not our mail, nor anyone else’s mail.
MyMailSM differs from standard email solutions in that:
In the actual communication and delivery of email messages – email messages are delivered safely and securely across the internet;
In the storage and retrieval of email messages – each email message is stored securely in an encrypted format, which only the intended recipient (the email inbox owner) can open and access.
As a result, individuals, businesses, schools and governments can rest assured their email messages are kept private and confidential.
Recent changes made to the “terms of service agreements” by most free email service providers and internet service providers shows that personal and private communication data, presumed to be private and personal, are not private at all. For example, the providers scan and read every email message for information to sell to advertisers to “help keep their prices competitive.” Here’s a snippet from one popular free email service provider terms of service:
“… You understand and agree that the Service may include content-targeted ads or other related information … [company] disclaims all responsibility and liability for the availability, timeliness, security or reliability of the Service … [Company] also reserves the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as it reasonably believes is necessary… [Company] may monitor, edit or disclose your personal information, including the content of your emails…”
Here’s what a popular ISP is doing
“… within the next few weeks you will begin seeing graphical advertisements in your Mail… These advertisements will be integrated into your Mail experience, and we hope you will find the advertisements useful. Advertising … helps us keep prices competitive, while we continue to provide the high level of service that you have come to know and trust …”
MyMailSM meets and exceeds the demanding security and privacy requirements set forth in the “Security Standards: Technical Safeguards of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act” (HIPAA) known as the “Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information,” published at 45 CFR Part 160 and Part 164.
MyMailSM meets the demanding privacy requirements set forth in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) pursuant to 20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99.
MyMailSM also meets the requirements of the Graham-Leach-Bliley Act relating to disclosure of nonpublic personal information.
MyMailSM's security audit has been validated by the Physics Department of Angelo State University (ASU), the host of the State of Texas Data Center for HIPAA and FERPA compliance in addition to rigorous security privacy standard tests.

MyMailSM is so easy to use that it’s virtually transparent to the end-user/general email user. MyMailSM ensures that each email message stored is uniquely encrypted using dynamically generated encryption keys for the ultimate security and privacy, without special plug-ins or retraining end-users on how to secure special email messages.
