Opt-Out PolicyEffective Date: September 1, 2010
If you would like to remove your name and address from appearing in the results of searches done at PeopleSmart.com, please complete and submit the form on our Opt-Out page. PeopleSmart.com will use good faith efforts to comply with properly completed Opt-Out requests. Opt-Out requests apply to the display of personal information in search results for living persons displayed on PeopleSmart.com and other sites operated by Inflection LLC. PeopleSmart.com may still make available details which are not specific to you (e.g. the city associated with an area code of a phone number).
For an Opt-Out request to be accepted you must be the person or family member of the person associated with the name, address, phone, or email requested for Opt-Out. You must be over the age of 13 to submit an Opt-Out request. PeopleSmart.com may request proof that you are the person you claim to be and that you have authority to make the Opt-Out request. Opt-Out requests are not necessarily automatically processed. They are subject to manual approval and verification. Incomplete Opt-Out request submissions will not be processed. Not responding to a request from PeopleSmart.com for additional information or confirmation within 14 days of the request will render the Opt-Out request void.
Personal information collected for the purposes of processing Opt-Out requests, including your IP address, name, email address, etc., is used by PeopleSmart.com only to administer your Opt-Out.
Exceptions to Opt-Out
- Third Party Databases. Opting-Out does not remove your name and address from data sources we do not control such as public records, or lists maintained by marketing companies.
- Anonymous Data. We and our partners reserve the right to make available anonymous search data that does not identify you individually (for example, the number of times a particular name was searched for).
- Other Consent. We may show results that include your information if a third party has provided documentation that you have consented to a disclosure by us.
- Hard Copy Vital Records, On-Site County Court Records Search, and Similar Services. We may show results that include your information in response to a hard copy vital records search, on-site county court records search, and similar services, that provide direct access to official government records. Pre-employment screening services, while currently not available, are also exempt from opt-out if added in the future.
Opt-Out requests are provided as-is with no warranty of any kind. PeopleSmart.com is not responsible or liable for, and shall be released and held harmless for any and all injuries, claims, damages, losses, costs, or expenses of any kind (including, without limitation, attorney's fees) resulting from PeopleSmart.com accepting, implementing or rejecting an Opt-Out request. For example, due to data variations, we may obtain data records that are not exactly the same as the records to which we applied the Opt-Out, in which case the Opt-Out may not be effective with respect to such records.
PeopleSmart.com reserves the right to temporarily or permanently suspend the Opt-Out feature if we suspect our system has been subject to manipulation or abuse by an automated system or "bot", or any other means of tampering. If we do suspend the feature we will post a notice on our Opt-Out page and process Opt-Out requests directly through our contact form.
This Opt Out Policy is subject to change in accordance with the Terms of Service, in which this Opt-Out Policy is incorporated.
