Privacy, Site Security, Tax Data Protection
We at eFile.com follow industry and government specified security guidelines concerning the use of private and personal information. However, in simple terms, security and convenience don't like each other. Without compromising on data security, we do strive to keep the user experience easy and convenient, and we do regret if certain security measures might be inconvenient to you.
These security controls include the guidelines of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) on the Protection of Data Privacy of Personal Data and the the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Department of Commerce's Fair Information Practices, and the CAN-SPAM Act.
Your tax information is secured through a Starfield Technologies® enabled 128 bit SSL encryption code between the efile.com web servers and your browser. The eFile.com hardware servers are located at a non-disclosed, limited access, and highly, bio-metric secured 24 hour monitored server location.

Instead of consistently bothering you with opt-out or opt-in requests on eFile.com, we give you the option to set your preferences at any time. We differentiate between:
