Permanent.org is the world’s first consumer-grade, secure cloud storage service backed by a nonprofit. But it's more than just a cloud based back-up service. Our permanent digital archives provide you with a safe place to preserve and share your history - or digital legacy - with your community, loved ones and future generations. Permanent.org was established by the Permanent Legacy Foundation to help ensure that our experiences and histories outlive us to create a valuable springboard for future generations.
