World Privacy Forum’s Top Ten Opt Outs for Data Privacy

Added Wednesday, July 17, 2019 by Action Alliance

Over the years, the World Privacy Forum has developed this list of resources for opting out of publicly searchable data storage sites. The list does not contain all opt outs that are available. Rather, it contains the opt outs that important and will be the most useful to the most consumers. This can be a helpful resource to survivors who have relocated or would like to be sure that their private information remains as private as possible. It is also a good practice for everyone to learn how their data is stored, sold, and available very easily, and how to take back some control over the sea of information available to those who know where to access it.

In this list, some opt outs can be done by phone, some have to be sent in a letter via postal mail, and some can be accomplished online. Some opt outs last forever, some have time limits, and others can be changed at will.

Added Thursday, June 02, 2016 by Action Alliance

From the National Sexual Assault Coalition Resource Sharing Project:

As coalitions, may we lobby? Should we? It all seems so unclear, and many coalitions struggle with the particulars of lobbying. By its nature, a coalition is the advocacy organization for the state or territory on issues related to sexual violence. Coalitions may and should lobby. This resource presents the current federal guidelines and limitations as they affect coalitions and any coalition staff responsible for lobbying. State provisions also apply and you will need to seek out resources and legal assistance in your state or territory to help your coalition navigate and maintain compliance with any restrictions on lobbying.
