One way that comes to mind is to store the data in a password-encrypted
stack (data is then gibberish) that also needs their password to be viewed
or a master password that you can use if they send you the data stack. Fee
chargeable. :)

(The password is optional because it?s up to the user whether they want the
extra protection). If they DO input a password, and subsequently forget it,
how can I provide a non-internet-based mechanism for retrieving or resetting
the password?
