Revenge Porn Data

revenge porn data

Revenge Porn Data is sexually explicit data like photos/videos/etc., that is publicly shared online without the consent of the pictured person. Sometimes, it is called non-consensual pornography or cyber exploitation. In addition to intimate images, perpetrators can post other identifying information to ensemble the image or video, comprising the victim’s name, links to social media profiles, email addresses, physical addresses of their place of employment and residence, phone numbers, and even social security information. In fact, it is a form of sexual abuse that involves the distribution of nude/sexually explicit photos and/or videos of an individual without their consent.

Sour Relation May Cause it

Sometimes, posted by a scorned ex-lover or friend in order to seek revenge after a relationship has gone acerbic. This non-consensual data could be shared because the person thought it was funny, he or she enjoyed the pictures and thought others would too, or because of arrogance. These sexually explicit images rapidly make their way to the attention of the victim’s close family members, friends, co-workers, classmates, colleagues, and employers.

Threaten

Victims are routinely threatened, stalked, and haunted. They have difficulty finding work and often get fired from or are forced to leave their current jobs or schools because of the rigorousness of the harassment. Shared objectionable data can be stolen by ex-lovers, ex-spouses, associates, or even complete strangers through hacking, theft of a cell phone or computer, during a computer repair, a false personal ad, or other means.

These photos or videos data are then posted on websites or sold for profit to humiliate, degrade, harass, physically endanger, or extort the victim.

Who May Be a Victim

While cyber exploitation affects both men and women, a study by Digital Rights Research found that 90 percent of victims are women. Women often face more serious penalties when they are the victim of non-consensual porn.

If you be a Victim

You should not immediately ask the individual or website to take the material down. Make sure to save evidence of the photos being on the internet. Save a screenshot of the website. If the media is a video, download the video and save it. Also, save any emails or text messages regarding the picture or video. Create an Evidence Chart specifying the date, what happened, the evidence, who you think did it, evidence they did it, what evidence is still needed, and who has it.

Use the website’s policy to take down the picture or video.

If the website does not comply with taking the porn down, send a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998) Takedown Form.

Consult a Cyber Law Attorney

If the website still does not comply, consult an attorney for legal advice on other possible steps.
