Bulk Data Removal, How Does it Work?

Your personal data is available all over the internet... We fix that.

What is Bulk Data Removal?

The primary service we offer at DataSeal is our automatic bulk data removal, otherwise known as data opt-out, where we remove your personal information from well-known data brokers and popular people search sites. Data brokers deal in the bulk sale of user data, with large corporations and append sites being their primary customers. Generally speaking, data brokers sell your data to consumer facing businesses, which is how most people search sites have access to your information.
For those unaware, there are websites called “people search sites” that provide personal data to the public, either for free or for a small price. Unlike most data brokers, people search sites focus on individual sales of personal data, allowing their users to target specific people. Although each site is different, these sites provide, at a minimum, access to your name, street address, phone number, email address, gender, and age. Premium sites offer even more targeted data, such as occupation, income, health, and any legal troubles associated with your name. These sites work by collecting a single piece of identifying data from the user, for example their name, and then matching it to a larger record containing the remaining personal data.
To understand how dangerous these sites can be, consider Whitepages, the most popular people search site today. Whitepages consistently gets millions of visitors daily, and every one of these people could access your personal information if they want to. With your data on sites like Whitepages, you are constantly at risk of identity theft, stalking, and scammers. DataSeal combats this by automatically removing your data records from people search sites (including Whitepages), ensuring that your personal information is protected. These types of websites can upload your data again after it has been removed, so DataSeal repeats this process monthly to guarantee your privacy.

Bulk Data Opt-Out

How Your Online Data Can Harm You

Identity Theft

Identity theft is a serious problem in America, as more than 9 million Americans have their identities stolen every year. A major factor in this is the surplus of identifying data available on the internet, largely thanks to data brokers and people search sites sharing your information with anyone willing to spend money.

Spammers & Scammers

Some people may not know this, but most of the spam calls, texts, and emails you receive are caused by the sale of consumer information by data brokers. The people purchasing this data buy in bulk based on a target demographic, and although a lot of spam is relatively harmless, it is unarguably annoying to deal with.

Stalkers

With your personal data so readily available on the internet, stalkers have essentially all the information they need to harass you 24/7. with only your name, stalkers can use people search sites to get access to your address, phone number, and email address, and with slightly more effort they can easily find where you work or go to school.
