The company is also offering a $10,000 guarantee to subscribers that photos and videos Yours.co burns to discs will remain accessible to them throughout their lifetimes.

M-DISCs come in 4.7GB, 25GB, 50GB or 100GB capacities.

Yours.co requires customers to give their current log-in and password information to their social media sites. The company then uses an API specific to that social media site to collect the images uploaded to the site and record them to the MDISC technology.

"Trust is going to be a big thing for us," Brockbank said. "We don't keep your data."

In the future, Yours.co is also planning to offer additional archive services for other forms of online data, such as financial records.
