Many digital copiers retain a copy of every print ever made on their hard drive. Your copier hard drive may contain memorized copies of documents with social security numbers, tax returns, medical information, credit card information, or more. This data can be mined by criminal technicians.
Please keep in mind that most used copiers are shipped overseas to developing nations where there is little or no regulation of data security.
