Disposing of Data Storage Devices
Please note that deleting images or formatting data storage devices such as memory cards or
built-in camera memory does not completely erase the original image data. Deleted files can
sometimes be recovered from discarded storage devices using commercially available soft-
ware, potentially resulting in the malicious use of personal image data. Ensuring the privacy of
such data is the user's responsibility.
Before discarding a data storage device or transferring ownership to another person, erase all
data using commercial deletion software, or format the device and then completely refill it
with images containing no private information (for example, pictures of empty sky). Be sure to
also replace any pictures selected for the welcome screen (c 102). Care should be taken to
avoid injury or damage to property when physically destroying data storage devices.
