- Data about minors, posted by them or by any other parties.
- Data on civil courts cases and registries, such as minor offenses, divorces, marriages, deaths, and births.
- Data on criminal cases filed in courtrooms and in law enforcement offices.
- Data on victims, witnesses, lawyers, and judges of crime verdicts and their reporting.
- Data collected inside private property, workplaces, or governmental offices.
