In order to remove yourself from data broker sites, you’ll have to look up data brokers operating in your area and send individual opt-out requests to each one. This is where Acadiana Marketing Solutions comes to the rescue! We can handle all of this for you.

Data brokers acquire consumer data by scraping the internet for publicly available information such as social media profiles and public registries or buying it from entities such as other data brokers and credit card companies.

People search sites are a type of data broker. You will have to look up your name in any popular search engine and send individual opt-out requests to each people search site that comes up in the results. We can also handle these for you.

The things we do throughout the day give businesses access to information about our habits, tastes, and activities. Businesses know that this information is valuable. In fact, companies known as data brokers collect information about us and sell or share it with others. People search sites are a type of data broker.

To build a report about you, people search sites may buy information from other data brokers, collect information from social media profiles that are public or viewable by everyone, and compile data from federal, state, and local government public records.

Information from public records may include

  • property records
  • driving records
  • voter registration information
  • criminal records, civil actions, and judgments
  • birth, marriage, divorce, and death records
  • professional licenses, like those for pilots, doctors, lawyers, or architects

If someone has just one piece of information about you, like your name or phone number, they could buy a report that tells them a lot about you, like

  • your age, date of birth, and gender
  • other names you’ve used
  • your current and previous addresses
  • properties you’ve bought or sold
  • your marital status
  • your education and employment history
  • criminal records and civil records including bankruptcies, liens, and judgments
  • the name and address of your family members

People buy these reports for many different reasons: some might want to find an old friend, look up a potential love interest, or connect with a neighbor.

But some people, like survivors of domestic violence or stalking, may not want anyone to find out where they live, or the name and address of their family members. Most people search sites have a way for you to tell them to stop selling your information. That’s also called opting out.

People search sites will let you opt out of sharing certain types of information, like your address or phone number, but not other information, like sex offender status. There are two ways to opt out of people search sites:

  • do it on your own, one by one, for free, or
  • pay a service to opt out for you (like us)

After you opt out, the people search site will stop selling your existing information.
