Data Security

Protecting Customer Information - KODAK Scanners process scanned data exclusively through volatile memory ensuring image data is effectively erased upon shut down.

This scanner contains non-volatile storage (NVRAM), and volatile memory (SDRAM).

Volatile memory is used to store customer image data. It is erased when the device is turned off.

Non-volatile memory is used to store program data, scanner settings, and scanner calibration data. No customer image data is stored in non-volatile memory.

The only scanner settings stored permanently are the Energy Star settings. No other customer data is stored in the non-volatile memory.

NOTE: The image data is passed to a PC which has its own ability to store images and information. The customer will also need to consider what precautions must be taken to secure the data on the PC.
