Opt-Out of EVERYTHING!

Here are some information services I suggest you opt-out of for privacy concerns.  I will do my best to keep this updated but these sites change things frequently to make things more difficult to opt-out.  If you see an update or addition that needs to be made, please contact us.

 

The Opt-Out Forms page contains examples of email, fax and other use cases to use when requesting data removal.

This is a long list and it will take you a while, but it's worth it.
