Sensitive Personal Information

Article Tools

Sensitive information can appear in a variety of situations, and include anything from actual credit card numbers, to bank account numbers, routing numbers, social security numbers, and tax identification numbers, just to name a few. 

When creating content featuring real documents or paperwork, whether a staged shoot or otherwise,  it’s important to exclude any sensitive personal information. Care should also be taken to avoid featuring any numbers from driver’s licenses, passports (or other identification), license plates, personal addresses, personal phone numbers, or any information that may link others to the identify, location, or financial institutions (etc.) of an individual.

Contributors should exercise an abundance of caution and review their work for sensitive personal information, prior to submitting it to a collection.
