Confidentiality / Privacy Protections for Survivors
Authored By: Oregon Law Center and Legal Aid Services of Oregon
Why confidentiality matters
If you are a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking, your abuser may try to use your personal information to find you, harass you, or continue to abuse you. Personal information includes your home address, phone number, driver’s license or social security number, and other personal identifying information. This personal information can be found in a variety of places, including online, in court documents, in your child’s school records, and more.
The brochure will cover some of the steps you can take to keep this information away from your abuser.
