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 www.PoliceReports.com/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.
2. You are a victim of identity theft.
3. You are at risk of physical harm.
4. 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:
617-507-0410 (This fax number is for data opt-out requests ONLY. The Data
Management Department does not manage any customer related issues)
Opt Out Compliance Department
P.O. Box 990043
Boston, MA 02199
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.
