The Keyholder® Security System
Here at LegalWills.ca,
we have developed the Keyholder® security
system to protect you from anyone accessing your documents and
As a LegalWills.ca
member, you can specify up to 20 friends or
family members, each of whom will be given the power to access your
wishes when the time is right. For each person you identify, you can
specify exactly what specific information they can access, such as:
- your funeral wishes
- sending final messages that you have prewritten to your family
- the contents of your Last Will and Testament
- health care directives contained in your Living Will, if you are
unable to communicate them yourself
- your Power of Attorney document, which contains directions about
the handling of your finances if you are incapacitated
- the important files and documents that you uploaded to your Vault
The Keyholder® system includes specific security mechanisms which
protect the secure integrity of your information and prevent
unauthorized premature access to your documents and services.
These mechanisms are fully customizable by you.
Here's how it works:
The Member creates their documents for the MyWill,
MyFuneral, MyMessages and other services, and names at least one close
friend or family member as their Keyholder®. The documents are stored on
secure server, and paper copies can also be printed.
The member's Keyholder(s)® are notified of their
responsibilities and given a secure ID to be used for accessing the
member's documents at the appropriate time. If the member wishes, they
can also send each Keyholder® their secure ID printed onto a plastic
wallet card for safe keeping.
The member can continue to make unlimited updates to
their documents on the LegalWills.ca
When the member becomes mentally incapacitated or
passes away, the member's Keyholder(s)® request to view the member's
documents on the server. To prevent premature access to the member's
documents, an automatic notification is sent to the member explaining
that a Keyholder® is attempting to view their documents.
If the member does not respond to the notification
within a period of time specified by the member, then the documents are
released to the member's Keyholder(s)®.
