Here's another new entry into the "online vault" concept...and this could include storing medical records in the form of documents...but unlike some of the others...standard fees that the banking industry is known for will apply...BD
SAN FRANCISCO - Recognizing not all banking customers want a safe deposit box, Wells Fargo & Co. plans to sell online vaults as a secure and convenient alternative for storing vital records. Called " vSafe," the service is perfect for storing digital versions of birth certificates, wills, driver's licenses, passports, family photos and other important documents, Smith said.
All documents put in vSafe will be encrypted, using the same measures that the bank deploys to protect other Internet accounts. Always on the lookout for new sources of service fees, Wells Fargo will charge nearly $180 per year for its biggest online safe. The planned monthly fees will be: $4.95 for 1 gigabyte of storage: $9.95 for three gigabytes; and $14.95 for six gigabytes.
