The scale included 20 items with five options for answers (Never, few times, sometimes, frequently and always).

The distribution of the participants was as follow: age between 14 to 75, 110 women and 90 men: diverse occupations and school levels.

The final scale was conformed by 11 items organized by three factors as follow: 1) Information Access Control, 2) Person Access Control and 3) Intimacy it explains 68% of variance and has a reliability of Cronbach Alpha =0.89. Afterwards a Confirmatory Factor Analysis was conducted to verify if the structure obtained from the Principal Component Analysis was correct, and a good fit was achieved (df=39, x2= 48.07, p = .151, CFI= .987, RMSEA= .032).
