  Frequently Asked Questions

 

If something were to happen to you today, would your loved ones be able to find the documents that they need? Do you have a spreadsheet that includes all of your accounts and passwords? Maybe you have been working on a novel, or have some family recipes. Perhaps you have photographs of your great grandparents. Do you have copies of your insurance policy or deed to your property? There are countless legal, personal and financial documents that need to get to the right people at the right time (and not before). You can do this using MyVault™.

You can upload any digital assets, including documents, files, scans, photographs, audio, video. You then set up security and access to your Vault so that the right files get to the right people at the right time.

You can add or remove assets from your Vault at any time.

We take care of protecting your Vault until after you have passed away. With MyVault™, you can upload all of your important files and documents (your "digital assets"). We take care of granting access to them once your Vault has been unlocked by your designated Keyholder® after you have passed away.

You can upload files, but why stop there? If you wish, you can even upload voice, pictures or video messages. Let your imagination be your guide for how you wish to be remembered, and to provide critical information to your loved ones. At the appropriate time, your designated Keyholder® will unlock your Vault and view the contents. This could be legal and financial information, or a very personal insight into your life.

Your vault is completely private. Due to the secure encryption methods used to store your information at PartingWishes.com, no one can see what you've uploaded, not even anyone at PartingWishes.com. The only people that will ever see the contents of your Vault are you and your designated Keyholder(s)®, and only when they request access after you have passed away.

You can make unlimited updates for the rest of your life. You can keep your Vault active with PartingWishes.com for your entire life, updating the documents whenever you please. You never have to worry about a loved one stumbling across a document that might be intended for them, but not quite yet. We take care of informing your Keyholder® where your Vault is located, so that they can "unlock" it from anywhere in the world after you have passed away. Join for FREE right now, and you can use the MyVault™, MyMessages™ and MyFuneral™ services free of charge for 1 year.

MyVault™ - Frequently Asked Questions

What kinds of documents can I upload?

MyVault™ accepts any digital file. This can be photos, scans, mp3 files, Word documents, PDF files, video files. Anything that can be put onto your computer, can be uploaded to your Vault. You can upload up to 500 Kilobytes of files for free.

How will you ensure that my Vault is not opened prematurely?

You will designate trusted Keyholders®, each of whom will be assigned a unique and secure ID and password. At the appropriate time, your Keyholder® will request access to your Vault. As soon as this request is received, we will automatically send a notification to your email address and you will be given an opportunity to refuse access to your Vault. If, after a period of time determined by you, we have not received an order to block the requested access, then your Vault will be opened.

It is important that you choose Keyholders® whom you trust. Although safeguards are in place to prevent the premature access to your Vault, you should not expect any of your Keyholders® to request access to your Vault before the appropriate time.

How much does this service cost?

There is no charge for using MyVault™ while you have an active membership. You can even store up to 500 Kilobytes of files without payment.

MyVault™ becomes a service enabled on your account at PartingWishes.com. You can then maintain an account with us, and this gives you unlimited access to all of the services on your account.

You may use MyVault™ together with other premium services at PartingWishes.com such as the MyWill™ service. If you do this, MyVault™ will continue to be available to you during the entire time that your account is active at PartingWishes.com.

Add 25 years: $74.95 CAD (75% savings)
Lifetime: $124.95 CAD

Why would I use this service rather than Dropbox or Google Drive?

Dropbox and Google Drive are simply document repositories. You cannot assign access to these documents other than by giving somebody your User ID and password. You also have no clear tracking to know when somebody has accessed, or attempted to access, your Dropbox or Google Drive.

MyVault™ is an estate planning tool. It is most powerful when used in conjunction with your Will, Power of Attorney, Living Will, Messages, LifeLocker and other services.

The value of our service comes from the power of our proprietary Keyholder® Security System. You name Keyholders® and grant them access to different services within your PartingWishes.com account. You can then set up access to these documents to individual Keyholders® through the MyKeyholders™ service.

How does MyVault™ compare to MyMessages™ and MyLifeLocker™?

At a bare minimum, you should have your legal estate planning documents in place, including your Will, Power of Attorney and Living Will. But this only gets you so far.

Your Executor will need to administer your estate, and this means gathering up your assets. Using MyLifeLocker™ you can list all of your assets and contact information for critical people. MyLifeLocker™ is an invaluable tool for your Executor to understand the scope of your assets.

MyMessages™ can be used to create personal messages for individuals. When the MyMessages™ service is unlocked by one of your Keyholders®, these messages are distributed to their respective recipients. Each person will receive the message that is intended just for them.

MyVault™, on the other hand, allows you to store uploaded items. It is a secure repository for important files. These can be documents, but also audio, video, photographs, recipes, anything that you need to be passed on as part of your estate.

What if a hacker gets into your system?

All of your information stored at PartingWishes.com is safe and secure.  Your information is so highly encrypted that nobody has access to this information other than yourself and your trusted Keyholders® using their randomly generated personal key.  Even the owners and administrators of PartingWishes.com are not able to view the contents of your Vault due to the software design and encryption methods used.

All data passing from your computer to PartingWishes.com is authenticated and encrypted using 256-bit "SSL encryption".  This is the most advanced level of encryption available today, and it means that any information sent from your computer is scrambled in a way which makes it completely unintelligible if intercepted.  When you are on a secure section within the web site, a padlock will appear on your web browser.  This is your assurance that the encryption is in place and that you are communicating across a secure link.

Furthermore, PartingWishes.com uses an industry standard high security streaming-encryption algorithm known as "RSA" to encrypt all of your information before it is stored online.  To give you a feeling for the level of security provided by this encryption, it has been estimated that with the most efficient algorithms known to date, it would take a computer operating at 1 million instructions per second over 300 quintillion years (that's 3 with 20 zeros behind it!) to break the encryption. That's several trillion times longer than the age of the Earth.

Can my files get destroyed or lost?

All of our data is securely stored in a highly encrypted format on database servers. To protect against catastrophic data loss, daily backups are performed on each of our servers. Hence, if any one of our servers experienced technical difficulties, the data would not be at risk.

Furthermore, physical protection of our primary systems includes:

  • Fire detection and fire suppression systems with dry pipe pre-action sprinkler systems
  • N + 1 redundant power supplies, providing dual power feeds and backup batteries, water coolant systems and generators
  • N + 1 redundant climate control, providing primary and backup chiller units, cooling towers, and water storage
  • Local network operations center (NOC) for monitoring all data center operations
  • 24x7 monitoring and support of network connection and server availability
  • 24x7 uniformed guard service with interior and exterior closed-circuit television surveillance
  • Electronic access at all data center entrances, including biometric hand scanners
  • Electronic key management systems and individually keyed cabinets

As you can see, we take the security and privacy of all of our member information very seriously.

Does it matter where I live?

Services such as MyVault™, MyFuneral™, MyLifeLocker™ and MyMessages™ do not create legal documents and make no assumptions about your country of residence. 

We have worked extensively with lawyers in Canada to ensure that the legal documents created by the MyWill™, MyExpatWill™, MyPowerOfAttorney™ and MyLivingWill™ services are up to date with the laws in all of the provinces in Canada, including: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan, and Yukon.  Hence, our services can be used to generate legal documents in any Canadian province with the exception of Quebec. If you are in Quebec, you can consider downloading a Quebec Will Kit from QuebecWillKit.ca.

If you have any doubts about the legal standing of any documents in your jurisdiction, feel free to seek legal counsel in your area to have your documents reviewed.
