Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Posting personal information online of a person that could lead to identity theft is a breach of a duty of confidentiality. Typically the name and address of a person is not confidential, but when combined with a birth date it is getting closer to being confidential information. However it is borderline still, because under the law the only truly confidential information is your Social Security Number and if they are not publishing that, then they really have not violated the law. Even if they have not violated the law, they should have a confidentiality agreement as part of their service AND you are entitled to that policy and if they have violated that policy, then you have grounds to sue them for breach of contract and seek not only damages, but a court order to remove the information.

You need to start by contacting the company and demanding they remove your information from the internet and also send your demand to the actual sites where it is being displayed as well, since each site has to be notified to remove the information. If they refuse, then you need to get the initial company's privacy policy and seek to sue for breach of that policy to seek a court order to all of the sites to remove the information, plus damages you may have suffered.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
