definedefine blind address
. . .
a receiving point that doesn't reveal the identity of who visits or picks up from it, often a post office box or temporary email address. A blind address is used for confidentiality protection.

People not identifiable with you or your organization should be used to pick up from a blind address. The same goes for vehicles or things that display an identity, such as logos on jackets or lapel pins. Perhaps the most secure approach is to hire a service, for example, The Site Selection Directory of The Network is supported by a information collection service that can be a go-between to protect identities and things confidential
