V. PUBLIC RECORDS AND NONPUBLIC INFORMATION?
Company takes reasonable steps to accurately reproduce data we receive from suppliers. However, sometimes this data may contain errors. While some data suppliers and government entities will entertain requests for changes from members of the general public, many will only acknowledge and consider requests for changes when they are submitted by resellers such as Company. Therefore, if you find an error related to Nonpublic Information or Public Records provided by Company, please contact Company immediately to enable any necessary correction. Based on the source of the data and the requirements of that particular vendor/supplier, we will notify you as to the documentation that you may need to submit to Company in order to have the vendor/supplier consider making the change being requested. Please be aware that we have no options in terms of the copies of documentation that may be requested to commence the correction process for any particular error. The requirements are dictated by each supplier.
VII. REMOVAL OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Company does not remove names of parties in lawsuits and/or other publicly available court data as removal of such information could compromise the integrity of our services and products, in part because our subscribers rely on the accuracy and completeness of our databases.
Company will act to help prevent certain harms to an individual by removing non-public information only to the extent such information is not otherwise publicly available through the courts and/or public record searches. Requests to remove publicly available information, as found within public court records, must be in writing and be accompanied by an order from the court sealing such records. Removal of any such information within public records will be limited only to the records identified by court order.
Additional questions about who can request removal of their personal information or what kind of documentation is required, may be directed to Company at: 1939 Wellington Rd. Los Angeles, CA & [email protected]
