Birth Certificate for Living People

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I was wondering if there were any privacy issues with citing a living person's birth certificate. I know you shouldn't share the birth certificate itself, but is there a problem with sharing the birth certificate number as you would in a citation?

SomebodyWithAQ, EE sees a considerable issue with citing a living person's birth certificate without some protective measure.  EE would use the same privacy brackets and privacy statement that it recommends for current addresses. Chapter 3 has numerous examples of this.

SomebodyWithAQ, looking for this "privacy" capability in a genealogical database is VERY important. Not all products have it and in some of those that claim to have it, it doesn't quite work as it should. If you can test drive a product first, it's one key functionality you should verify.
