  • What happens to cloud data when you die? | IT Business
    you die your Yahoo account will be deleted No Right of Survivorship and Non Transferability You agree that your Yahoo account is non transferable and any rights to your Yahoo I D or Content within your account terminate upon your death Upon receipt of a copy of a death certificate your account may be terminated and all Content permanently deleted But in 2005 Yahoo was ordered by a Michigan Court to release e mails of deceased U S Marine Justin Ellsworth to his father John Ellsworth Yahoo ended up giving the family a CD containing more than 10 000 pages of materials Microsoft and Gmail Unlike Yahoo Microsoft and Gmail are pretty accommodating when it comes to providing others with access to your e mail accounts after you die Microsoft will send the contents of a Hotmail or Microsoft account including contacts and emails on a data DVD after receiving certain documentation from authorized representatives e g your Executor or beneficiaries Among other things the person requesting access will be required to provide personal information a copy of the death certificate and details concerning the deceased s account After receiving this information Microsoft will verify this information and then send a DVD with the deceased s account information Gmail accounts can be shut down upon request by the Executors and close family members Gmail may also give certain authorized representatives access to the contents of your Gmail account in certain rare cases and only after they have met some somewhat stringent tests e g which includes providing personal information and identification to Gmail a copy of the death certificate and an order from a U S court To avoid these headaches it may be a good idea to make regular e g monthly weekly etc backups of your sent and received e mails I do this with Microsoft Outlook With proper instructions again in a private memorandum that accompanies your Will a somewhat tech savvy Executor or beneficiaries could locate and import or otherwise access those backups If you have a private business email account i e a non hotmail Yahoo G mail etc account you could leave instructions on how to access the webmail server and your emails where hopefully they ve been stored all along Remember if you don t plan ahead and your e mail account remains inactive after you die it may be terminated and the content deleted For example Gmail may terminate your account if it remains inactive for nine 9 months Facebook Facebook s Terms and Conditions say that You will not transfer your account including any Page or application you administer to anyone without first getting our written permission This essentially rules out the ability to transfer your Facebook profile and other content when you die That said Facebook s policy is to memorialize your profile when told of death When an account is memorialized Facebook sets privacy so that only confirmed friends can see the profile or locate it in search Facebook tries to protect the deceased s privacy by removing sensitive information such as contact information and status updates Memorializing an account also prevents anyone from logging into it in the future while still enabling friends and family to leave posts on the profile Wall in remembrance Alternatively Facebook can delete the profile upon request verified by family members examples of documentation to be provided include birth certificate death certificate certificate from the court establishing that the person making the request is the Executor of the estate etc Related Story Take care of your digital legacy when you die Twitter Twitter says that when you sign up it gives you a personal worldwide royalty free non assignable and non exclusive license to use the software which again means that an account cannot be transferred While the idea of transferring and keeping active a personal Twitter account active seems odd why would anyone log into your personal account after death and keep tweeting updates you would probably want to transfer a business related twitter account upon your death particularly if that account had accumulated a large following But if the Twitter account is left inactive it may eventually be deactivated Twitter also has a policy that allows certain authorized persons to inform Twitter of your death to deactivate the account It seems unlikely it would pursue an individual for logging into a relative s account after their death but there are inactivity rules Your account will not stay around forever if nothing is happening with it LinkedIn LinkedIn has a simple Verification of Death form which can be completed and submitted to LinkedIn to close a deceased s LinkedIn account The form can be submitted online or via fax Among other things the person submitting the form will need to know the deceased account holder s most recent place of employment It s a pretty simple form that does not require a death certificate for processing GoDaddy You may be using GoDaddy to host a business related website or blog which generally includes having a registered domain name and subscribing to website hosting services Before your domain name or subscription services expire GoDaddy will send renewal reminders to you via e mail If you haven t left instructions on how to access and deal with your GoDaddy account in your private memorandum and if your e mail account is inaccessible or de activated after you die then your Web site or blog could go offline for good This could be disastrous if your Web site makes money and contains vital intellectual property and client information Once your domain expires it could be registered by anyone for a few dollars eBay eBay s Terms of Use say that you will not transfer your eBay account including Feedback and user ID to another party without our consent This effectively rules out trying to transfer your eBay account to another person when you die If provided a death certificate eBay will close an account rather
