Businesses and the Public



Use of a participant's designated Safe at Home mailing address in lieu of his or her confidential address helps to prevent survivors of violence from being found by their assailants. California's businesses play an important role in preventing the exchange and sale of confidential address information.

While businesses are not required to comply with the laws that govern the Safe at Home program, for the safety of your client, it is recommended that you use the participant's designated Safe at Home mailing address in lieu of his or her confidential address on public records. Or, if the confidential address is required in order to provide services, you may employ measures to protect the participant's account and confidential address information, such as requiring the use of a password.
