The Florida Unlawful Use of Personal Identification Act (UUPIA)

What is UUPIA?

UUPIA protects Florida residents from misuse of their personal information. The Act mandates the protection of such information by businesses operating in the state and outlines an organization’s obligations to its customers in the event of a security breach.

UUPIA also informs businesses on the appropriate methods for notifying Florida residents who may be unduly affected by a security breach, including special requirements for large-scale security breaches.

Who is affected by UUPIA?

  • a social security number
  • a driver’s license number or Florida Identification Card number
  • a financial account number
  • a credit card or debit card number accompanied by applicable passwords or security codes
  • a government passport number medical records

Any business that fails to report a suspected breach within 45 days of its determination is liable for an administrative fine as high as $500,000.

What People Are Saying About PROSHRED®

We have had Proshred come to our residence twice in the past year to take and shred old documents and records. We couldn't have been more satisfied with the results. From making the appointment to the arrival of the truck, the whole experience was a pleasure. Fast service and a very courteous and helpful driver made getting rid of old papers so easy. Would highly recommend this service.
