Protecting Your Personal Data as a Notary Public

The job description of a notary is a sensitive one. It is one that places a high premium on accountability and honesty partly because of the confidentiality involved in the notary process and also because of the need to keep the notary free from any undue influence that unnecessary exposure might bring especially when serious documents are about to be notarized. The business world is a tricky one which requires shrewdness to navigate; organizations competing with one another for the patronage of the masses are often on the lookout for means through which they can outsmart the competitor regardless of how legal or illegal such attempt might be. The need for the safety for a notary public is indeed very crucial because unscrupulous people looking to score a point against a rival might want to peep into the documents of the other party and this information if realized could be used to harm the other party.

Furthermore, performing the roles of an impartial witness requires secrecy. The contact details such as the residential address of the notary public should be hidden from the general public especially when important documents are to be signed because the notary public must enjoy privacy at all times. The role of the notary public warrants that they hold the key to the future and viability of organizations involved in the notary process. Therefore, undue exposure of the contact details and address of a notary public is an act that is capable of interfering with the credibility of the notarial process.

Our society is filled with all kinds of security issues and we make every effort to guarantee the security of our members. Imagine someone showing up at your doorstep uninvited - situations of this nature tend to occur when your personal contact information is out there for public consumption. This data allows exposure to you and/or members to personal harm or property theft. In life, it is better to be safe than to be sorry which is why it is best practice to take the necessary precautions in ensuring safety rather than merely waiving away the prospect of such unforeseen circumstance occurring.

Conclusively, more than being a security protocol, the standard practice adopted by most frontline organizations is to hide the details of their central staff. The norm is that if members of the public require additional notary contact information, specific questions must be made available to American Notary USA before such information is made available. In like manner, courtesy demands that your authorization be asked in person before a third party can obtain information from you in person is the same manner your permission should be sought even when your information is requested online. This way, you will be aware of why, who, what or where your data is being solicited
