Facebook works to ensure safety in our community, online and offline, including by working with law enforcement. We may provide information to law enforcement that will help them respond to emergencies, including those that involve the risk of immediate harm, suicide prevention and the recovery of missing children.
We take the privacy of your information very seriously. We scrutinize every government request we receive to make sure it’s legally valid. When we comply, we produce narrowly tailored information to respond to that request. We strive to notify people when their data has been requested, and we publish a transparency report on government requests we receive.
We also report apparent child sexual exploitation from anywhere to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), which refers cases to law enforcement authorities around the world.
