How do I know what information to redact (if any) on the documents and products I am putting up for sell?
Each seller is obligated to be aware of any state or federal disclosure guidelines. For state level products, the statutes and protocols differ in terms of what must be redacted from public documents. For example, in the state of Colorado any and all names of juveniles must be kept private on any public legal documents. Therefore if a Colorado-based attorney wants to upload a case file from a juvenile case, he or she must redact any instance of names listed on said document prior to upload. Each seller retains ownership of their products and therefore the sellers are liable for any wrongful disclosures of personal identity. If a seller has any questions regarding what, if any, information needs to be redacted from their products, they are encouraged to refer to their local legal statutes, or marketplace members can contact a sales advocate with any and all questions.
