For those items in this article it talks about being ecrypted during transmission and during storage but it doesn't say that the data is never unencrypted at any point in the process in between.  I would only consider this safe if the personal files I store on iCloud (pics, docs, contacts, etc) are never unencrypted from the time they leave my device to the time they return to my devices.
