Notifications & Opt-Out
If you choose to register to use a Site, we will send you a welcome email including information about the Site and your registration.
We may send you emails notifying you about new or upcoming products or services, news about the Site, information about changing or updating your Site registration information, and changes to the Site's terms of service, and promotional materials and offers from our company as well as from our subsidiaries, affiliates, marketing partners, advertisers and other third parties.
Out of respect for your privacy, if you no longer wish to receive these emails, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each email, or please contact us by clicking here.
We will take reasonable steps to implement your request to opt out. However, please note that due to production and mailing timelines, it may take around six weeks to make the requested change and, until that change takes effect, you may still receive promotional information from us.
As noted above, we automatically and through third-party tracking services (e.g., Google Analytics) gather certain non-personally identifiable information about your use of our Sites and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, solely to analyze trends, administer the Sites, track users' movements around the Site and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and to improve our quality of our services. Out of respect for your privacy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
Emails sent to you by us or our partners may include "web beacons". Web beacons are unique identifiers that gather certain non-personally identifiable information, and which allow us to better understand how you interact with these emails. For example, web beacons allow us to determine whether and when an email has been opened, and what links within those emails have been clicked. We use the information gathered by these web beacons simply to improve the quality of the information we provide to you. If you prefer not to provide this non-personally identifiable information to us, you may configure your email program to avoid downloading, displaying or otherwise accessing HTML emails or HTML images.
We understand how highly our users value the privacy and security of their personally identifiable information. We will only disclose information collected from and about you, including but not limited to, your searches performed and results received, to the following entities for the following purposes:(1) to our related companies, service providers and suppliers, if the disclosure will enable them to fulfill a product or service request or to perform a business, professional or technical support function for us; (2) as necessary if we believe that there has been a violation of our terms of service or of our rights or the rights of any third party; and (3) to respond to a valid court order, subpoena, government investigation, or as otherwise required by law. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe to be unlawful. We may release certain personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property, and safety of others and ourselves. We may also release personal information in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event..
We may also sell, rent or lease your personal information to our marketing partners, advertisers or other third parties. If you would prefer that we not share your personal information with such third parties, please click here to contact us.
Information Disclosure Legal Disclaimer
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us as provided in greater detail above.

Removing your information from our search results
Please be aware that public records can be obtained from official public records custodians or repositories and are made available upon request to the general public. In order to request a copy or removal of your official public record, please contact the official custodians of the public record you wish to be removed/withheld from public access. The process by which you may request for your official public record/s to be removed varies by state, so please check with your local government public record repository/ies for further details.
As a courtesy, you may opt-out of having your information included in the data that appears in search results of this website. Your identifying information such as your name, address, phone number (as it appears on this website) will be withheld/removed upon written request submitted to our Data Management Department, as further explained below.
It is vital that we are able to confirm your identity in order to locate and remove your information from our databases. In order for us to do this, we require that all data removal request forms submitted to our Data Management Department are accompanied by official proof of identity, such as a state issued ID or a driver's license. This will ensure that we have fully matched the information you would like removed with the information stored on our databases. Please be sure to obscure or redact your photo and ID/driver's license number prior to sending us the copy of one of these documents.
We understand that you may have some security concerns when sending us your information. We wish to reassure you that we abide by very stringent security protocols. All information you provide through the data removal request process is ONLY used for the purposes of removing data from our databases. The information you submit to us is not stored, shared, sold, or used for any marketing purposes. It is used strictly to assist in the facilitation of the data removal request.
Please print, fill out all the requested/mandatory information on the Data Removal Request Form available at opt_out_form.pdf
Be sure to include any of the following reasons for your request:
- You are a state, local or federal law enforcement officer or public official and your position exposes you to a threat of death or serious bodily harm.
- You are a victim of identity theft.
- You are at risk of physical harm.
- You have evidence the record is incorrect or expunged.
It may further help us locate the information you wish to be removed/withheld, if you provide us such details as the location of the data in question in a form of website/URL link.
Please fax or mail your Data Removal Request along with your proof of ID and copies of any applicable court orders to:

Boston, MA 02113
Please allow upwards of 30 days for us to fully process your Data Removal Request.
Please note: We do not process Data Removal Requests by email or over the phone. We may not be able to process incomplete requests which are missing proof of identification and/or vital information such as name, address and date of birth.
Although most information is usually removed or blocked permanently, we do not guarantee the information will not be available again in the future, as we are not in direct control of the information distributed and obtained from official public records/government or third party sources. It is for this reason that we recommend you contact the custodian of the original record to request it be removed or corrected.
In addition, we have no control over any information displayed by other online public records vendors, and your Data Removal Request will not remove information from third party websites.
Please be aware that we are not a "consumer reporting agency" as defined by the FCRA, as we do not provide any data for use in credit, insurance, or employment screening. We explicitly prohibit the use of our service and the data it supplies for such purposes.
We may periodically update this policy, and will post a notice of such updates on the Sites. We will attempt to notify you of material updates by sending a notice to an email address you may have provided to us, and by placing a prominent notice on the Sites.
