ZabaSearch is a search engine like Google, and it scours various data sources for its results. Because ZabaSearch does not maintain a database of records, it is not possible to change the information it finds from various public records sources. Nor can ZabaSearch remove persons or information it finds because ZabaSearch has no control to add, modify or delete public information owned, operated and/or maintained by those sources. What ZabaSearch can offer is to create a filter that will block the information from appearing when someone runs a search. Please note this WILL NOT remove your information from the information sources. There may be multiple results for one individual due to the way the information was entered at the source. Even the slightest variation in a name, such as a period after a middle initial or a spelling of a street name, will result in a separate record.
Instructions for record blocking:
Public records are available from the official public records custodian or repository to anyone who requests them. In order for any database of public records to be useful, the databases must contain all of the information in the public records offices. Our data files must accurately reflect the underlying public records, and we do not remove or suppress any information that is both accurate and publicly available. There are exceptions to this rule, as a courtesy we allow law enforcement, certain government officials or employees, and individuals with court protection orders the option to opt out their information.
If you have a compelling privacy or security issue, you may wish to contact the official custodians of those public records that contain sensitive information about you, such as your county's land records office, to determine how to remove your information from the public record. (The process of having public records sealed typically requires a court order.) This process will ensure that the information is not available to the public, to ZabaSearch, or to any other public records information provider.
As a courtesy we can 'opt out' your specific information from the ZabaSearch People Search service. What this means is that your name as it appears in a particular record and the associated identifying information such as your address and phone number will be suppressed if you request this in the manner described below. However, please note that any time your identifying information appears in a public record in a manner which is different from the record you opted out, it will again appear in our system. (For example, if your address or area code changes your new information will again appear unless you opt out the new record.) There also are many other public records search services which are not owned by ZabaSearch and your request that we opt out your information will not prevent your information from appearing on these other services.
In order for ZabaSearch to "opt out" your public information from being viewable on the ZabaSearch website, we need to verify your identity and require faxed proof of identity. Proof of identity can be a state issued ID card or driver's license. If you are faxing a copy of your driver's license, cross out the photo and the driver's license number. We only need to see the name, address and date of birth. We will only use this information to process your opt out request. Please fax to 425-974-6194 and allow 4 to 6 weeks to process your request.
Each individual that wishes to be opted out of ZabaSearch must be accompanied by proof of identity and address. We will only be processing opt out requests we receive by fax and no request will be processed without complete information. Requests for opt out will not be processed over the phone or via email.
