Online Data Brokers

The Internet makes it easier than ever to find anyone. Chances are that one of the many Online "people search" services has your name and current contact information in their database. The good news is that you can opt out and remove your name from these sites.

Since each site is independently owned and operated, you will need to contact each Web site directly as their opt out policies vary. Keep in mind that most public records Web sites refresh their data every four months from multiple sources. You will need to remain vigilant and check these sties every 90 days to see if your record has been repopulated.
