When you use ChangeMyFile for any of your file extension conversion needs, you get a clear-cut advantage over other website converters, due to the fact that, you need to provide very little information to us in comparison to other file converters, in order to convert your files. For you to be able to better understand and recognize the various ways in which ChangeMyFile provides you a clear advantage over other file extension converter sites, especially in terms of your Data Privacy, the following points have been listed:
You do not have to register or create an account on our website (by providing your personal data) in order to convert your files, unlike most other file extension converter websites. It is evident that if you do not have to create an account by providing your personal information to ChangeMyFile for converting your files in the first place, then there is no concern of how such personal data of yours would be managed by our website. Moreover, you get a great experience of quick file extension conversion without the hassle of having to register first.
This is a huge advantage to you over most other file converter sites, where you are required to register and create an account with them by providing your personal details to convert your files. That is not only more time consuming, but also adds the stress of having to keep track of how your personal data is managed or used by these sites.
You can convert all your files for absolutely free. You are not limited to a restricted number of free file conversions, as is the case with many other file converter websites.
You are provided with an unlimited number of fast, high-quality, and free file extension conversions at ChangeMyFile, without the need to pay or buy a subscription plan for faster, larger, or higher-quality file extension conversion, as is the case with almost every other online file converter. This is exactly why we do not require you to register with us or ask you to provide us with your personal data in order to convert your files, as we do not intend to upsell our products or services to you, unlike most other file extension converter websites.
When using ChangeMyFile, you will not be bothered by unwanted Advertisements or having to accept website Cookies (which collect more such personal data of yours), unlike most other file extension converter websites.
We do not bombard you with advertisements based on your personal data, or ask you to accept website cookies which collect information on all of your website activity and store it for your consequent website visits. This differentiates us from most of the other online file converter websites and enables us to provide you with a hassle-free file conversion experience.
Typically, the user data that ChangeMyFile deals with, manages, or collects constitutes the information that is present in the files that you upload to our site for conversion, or the web server logs which accumulate your basic website usage data. This is the most basic information that most other sites collect, when you access them.
Your Uploaded Files With respect to the contents of the file that you upload to our site for conversion, you can rest assured that this information is never accessed or used by us, except for the purpose of converting your original file to your desired file type. The sole reason that the file is uploaded by you onto our website is, as stated, for the purpose of file extension conversion.

Although very unlikely, if during this time period of two hours, there happens to be an unfortunate instance of an unpredicted hacking of our website, or data disclosure due to malicious external attacks, where the website data, including any such uploaded stored files, their contents, or your website activity data from the web server log files, gets illegally leaked to an external party, then ChangeMyFile Limited shall hold no accountability for the use or control of this data, and will not be held responsible by you for the leak of the same.
