Data Website Opt-Outs

Privacy is your right

There is a huge industry made up of websites that collect and post our personal info, referenced here as “public data websites.”  For survivors of domestic violence, harassment, and stalking, having your personal details on the internet is not just annoying and intrusive, it’s dangerous. We created this list of websites, along with the links and/or support emails where you can request to “opt-out” of having your information listed.
