Afraid I can't offer any special insight, though I would expect this to be
covered by the .Mac terms of service and/or Apple's privacy policy.

That's correct; any items you encrypt will be protected in transit and
while stored on the .Mac servers (as well as on your Mac(s)).

>(including any backdoors). ;-)

Yojimbo uses AES-256, which is a strong, system-provided encryption
mechanism, to protect item content, and there are no backdoors nor reset

So, if your dog eats the PostIt that has your Yojimbo password, we're sorry
but we won't be able to help... :-)
