"Our service includes UCE. You should keep your encryption keys safe and confidential and not release them to anyone unless you wish them to have access to your data. If you lose or misplace your encryption keys, you will lose access to your data. We strongly urge you to use robust anti-virus and firewall protection."

there is no guarantee that Mega.co.nz cannot access your files, but at least their business model is based on *not* being able to access your data, which is quite refreshing after so many web 2.0 companies who based their business model on making your data its product.
