Personal Information We Collect

Information you provide to us. Personal information you provide to us through the Services may include:

  • Contact information, such as your first and last name, email address, phone number, professional title and organization name.
  • Profile information, such as your username and password and any account preferences for the Services.
  • Datasheet information. When enrolling in the service, you will be asked to fill out a datasheet with personal data fields that you can choose to complete so that we can find instances of data brokers holding that data about you and have it deleted. The kinds of categories that you can provide and thus have us search against include first name, middle name, last name or surname/family name, date of birth, gender, email addresses, phone numbers, street addresses, relatives’ names, employers, political affiliation, and ethnicity (“Datasheet Data”). This Datasheet Data information is used to provide the DeleteMe service, specifically to search for listings containing your personal information on data broker websites and to have them removed. Providing this Datasheet Data information to us is entirely optional. The more information you provide, the more data points we can search against and the more listings we can potentially find and have deleted.
  • Feedback or correspondence, such as information you provide when you contact us with questions, feedback, or otherwise correspond with us.
  • Usage information, such as information about how you use the Services and interact with us, including information you provide when you use any interactive features of the Services.

Information we obtain from social media platforms. We may maintain pages for DeleteMe on social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. When you visit or interact with our pages on those platforms, the platform provider’s privacy policy will apply to your interactions and their collection, use, and processing of your personal information. You or the platforms may provide us with information through the platform, and we will treat such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Information we obtain from other third parties. We may receive personal information about you from third-party sources, such as marketing partners, publicly-available sources, and data providers.

How We Share Your Personal Information

Datasheet Data Disclosures

Any Datasheet Data you enter on your datasheet may be disclosed by us to third parties such as data broker websites in the form of searches containing your personal information, to provide the Services. Such Datasheet Data disclosures are solely to request, on your behalf, that your personal information be removed from those data broker websites, and we do not share your Datasheet Data with third parties for any other reason.

General Data Disclosures

We do not share your personal information with third parties without your consent, except in the following circumstances or as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy:

Affiliates. We may share your personal information with our corporate subsidiaries and any other individual, corporation, partnership, joint venture, limited liability entity, governmental authority, unincorporated organization, trust, association, or other entity that directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, DeleteMe (“Affiliates”) for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Service providers. We may share your personal information with third-party companies and individuals that provide services on our behalf or help us operate the Services (such as customer support, hosting, analytics, email delivery, marketing, communications and database management services). These third parties may use your personal information only as authorized by their contracts with us.

Partners. We may sometimes share your personal information (excluding your Datasheet Data) with business partners or enable them to collect information directly via our Services. See our Cookie Policy for more information about third parties that collect information through our Services with cookies and similar technologies.

Third-party platforms and social media networks. If you have enabled features or functionality that connect the Services to a third-party platform or social media network (such as by connecting your account with a third party to the Services or sharing content via a third-party platform), we may disclose the personal information that you authorized us to share (excluding your Datasheet Data). We do not control the third party’s use of your personal information.

Professional advisors. We may disclose your personal information to professional advisors, such as lawyers, bankers, auditors, and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us.

For compliance, fraud prevention and safety. We may share your personal information for the compliance, fraud prevention and safety purposes described above.

Government Requests. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this policy, we may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, or legal request or to protect the safety, property, or rights of DeleteMe or others. However, nothing in this policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party or government request to disclose your information.

Business transfers. We may sell, transfer, or otherwise share some or all of our business or assets, including your personal information, in connection with a (potential) business transaction such as a corporate divestiture, merger, consolidation, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or in the event of bankruptcy or dissolution.

Your Choices

In this section, we describe the rights and choices available to all users. Users who are located within Europe can find additional information about their rights below.

Opt out of marketing communications. You may opt out of marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of the email. You may continue to receive service-related and other non-marketing emails.

Cookies & browser web storage. For information on how to disable cookies and similar technologies used in the Services, see our Cookie Policy.

Do Not Track and Global Privacy Control. Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. We currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” or similar signals. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit

Choosing not to share your personal information. Where we are required by law to collect your personal information, or where we need your Datasheet Data to provide the Services to you, if you do not provide this information when requested (or you later ask to delete it), we may not be able to provide you with the Services. We will tell you what information you must provide to receive the Services by designating it as required at the time of collection or through other appropriate means. As described above, while you do not need to fill out your datasheet, we search for your personal data held by data brokers based on what you provide in the datasheet. The more information you provide in your datasheet, the more data points we can search against and the more listings we can potentially find and have deleted.

Third-party platforms or social media networks. If you choose to connect to the Services via a third-party platform or social media network, you may have the ability to limit the information that we may obtain from the third party at the time you connect your third-party account to the Services. Subsequently, you may be able to control your settings through the third-party platform. If you withdraw our ability to access certain information from a third-party platform or social media network, that choice will not apply to information that we have already received from that third party.

Other Sites, Mobile Applications, and Services

The Services may contain links to, or content or features from, other websites and online services operated by third parties. These links are not an endorsement of, or representation that we are affiliated with, any third party. In addition, our content may be included on web pages or in mobile applications or online services that are not associated with us. We do not control third-party websites, mobile applications, or online services, and we are not responsible for their actions. Other websites and services follow different rules regarding the collection, use, and sharing of your personal information. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of the other websites and mobile applications and online services you use.

Security Practices

While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, no security system is impenetrable and due to the inherent nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, is absolutely safe from intrusion by others. We try our best by providing you with leading security practices, like encrypting all requests via a secure connection (HTTPS) and other best practices. We recommend that you take care to manage access to the computers and devices where you are logged in to our application.

International Data Transfers

We are headquartered in the United States and have service providers in other countries, and your personal information (excluding your Datasheet Data that is only stored in the United States) may be transferred outside of your state, province, or country to the United States or other locations where privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your state, province, or country. We will ensure that appropriate measures are in place for compliance with applicable data protection laws in relation to the transfer of your personal information to the United States.

Your California Privacy Rights

Under California law, California residents are entitled to ask us for a notice identifying the categories of personal customer information that we share with certain third parties for marketing purposes, and providing contact information for such third parties. If you are a California resident and would like a copy of this notice, please submit a written request to us via email at You must put the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in your request and include your name, street address, city, state, and ZIP code. We are not responsible for notices that are not labeled or sent properly, or do not have complete information.

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) and the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (CPRA) collectively referred to as the “CCPA/CPRA” provide certain rights to residents of California. If the CCPA/CPRA is applicable to you, you have the right to:

  1. know the categories of personal information collected about you in the prior 12 months and its sources and business purpose;
  2. know whether your personal information is sold or disclosed, and to whom, in prior 12 months;
  3. opt out of the sale or sharing of your personal information;
  4. access and then delete your personal information (subject to exceptions);
  5. equal service and price (non-discrimination) if you exercise your privacy rights;
  6. limit the use of your sensitive personal information; and
  7. correct your personal information.

“Personal Information” is defined to include information that identifies, relates to, describes, or is capable of being associated with a particular consumer or household. This includes (among other types of personal information) IP addresses, geolocation data, biometric information, and “unique identifiers” such as device and cookie IDs, Internet activity information like browsing history, commercial information such as products or services purchased or consuming histories or tendencies, and characteristics concerning an individual’s race, color, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), age (40 or older), religion, genetic information, sexual orientation, political affiliation, national origin, disability or citizenship status. Inferences drawn from personal information “to create a profile about a consumer reflecting the consumer’s preferences, characteristics, psychological trends, preferences, predispositions, behavior, attitudes, intelligence, abilities, and aptitudes” are also considered “personal information.”

Contact us at to exercise your CCPA/CPRA rights.

Request for Erasure . For identity verification purposes, DeleteMe requires anyone submitting an erasure request to submit the subject’s full name, email address, and home address related to the subject’s DeleteMe account or DeleteMe communications. DeleteMe will submit a verification email to the requestor who will be required to re-authenticate the request for erasure. DeleteMe relies upon this information to ensure the information on the correct individual is removed.

DeleteMe Subscribers Removal of Personal Information. Current members are able to log into their DeleteMe accounts to request personal data deletions on their user dashboards, which will also cancel their DeleteMe service subscriptions because, given the nature of the services we provide, we cannot provide the service without any personal data.

Do Not Sell My Information . We take your privacy seriously. We do not sell our members information. We are not a data broker.

If you are a California resident, you can request information regarding the disclosure, if any, of your personal information by DeleteMe to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to, subject line: CCPA Request.

Terms of Service

Effective as of 10/26/2023

Here are the ground rules if you’re using our stuff. The following Terms of Service (“Terms,” “Agreement”) govern your use of DeleteMe, a service of Abine, Inc.

DeleteMe helps protect your privacy. Our DeleteMe service allows for the management of personal information and control how other websites and businesses display such personal information. These Terms of Service describe the terms and conditions on which Abine provides the DeleteMe service to you but provisions regarding specific products or services apply only to the extent you have purchased, accessed, or used such products or services. For more information about how the DeleteMe service works, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions.

Legal policies can be tedious, but please read up. We’ll strive to make our policies understandable. READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY. IF YOU ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT OR USE THE DELETEME SERVICE OR APPLICATION, YOU ARE ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITH ABINE. THIS IS A LEGALLY BINDING AGREEMENT. If you don’t agree to these terms and conditions, you aren’t permitted to use the DeleteMe services, our apps, or our website.

Things could change. We may amend or terminate any terms of this Agreement at any time and such amendment or termination will be effective at the time we post the revised terms on the site. We’ll strive to make these terms understandable. You can tell when we last revised this agreement was by looking at the “last updated” date at the top of this Agreement. Your continued use of the site or services after we’ve posted revised terms signifies your acceptance of the revised terms.

DeleteMe Users

There are two types of users of DeleteMe (collectively, “DeleteMe Users”). “Individual Users” are users who register an account to use and access features of DeleteMe that they purchase for themselves or who have a DeleteMe account purchased or gifted to them by another individual. “Business Users” are registered account users who’s DeleteMe membership has been purchased by an Organization. “Organization” or “Organizations” means businesses and entities, (including private, public, government, and non-profit), that have entered into an Abine subscription agreement and subscribe with us to use and access DeleteMe for data removal services for their business. Business Users may also include Organization administrators who have access to certain features only available to an Organization (e.g., DeleteMe Privacy Center). Certain features of DeleteMe are only available to Enterprise Users and Organizations. Except as outlined below and in our Privacy Policy, the Terms apply equally to Individual Users and Enterprise Users.

Using DeleteMe – All DeleteMe Users

Except as otherwise described in these Terms or by a separate subscription agreement, if applicable, the following applies to all DeleteMe Users:

Tell the truth. You agree that all the information you’re submitting to DeleteMe in connection with the services is and will be true and about you, not someone else. If you provide any information that is or that we suspect is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Abine has the right to suspend or terminate your subscription and refuse any and all current or future use of your subscription.

Your data is yours. You retain ownership over all the personal information that you submit to the DeleteMe service, and Abine will never sell it. To fulfil your opt-out requests, we have to send your information to data brokers, which necessarily requires sharing your data with them. We can’t control how these third-party data brokers will treat your personal information, although it is only provided to them so they can opt you out of their public databases.

Adults only. This service is meant to be used by adults only (18+) for themselves, or on behalf of a minor for whom they are the parent or legal guardian.

We’ll try hard. DeleteMe allows subscribers like you to request that third party websites, such as data brokers and information aggregators, remove or suppress your personal information from their websites. You recognize that DeleteMe will use good faith, reasonable efforts to help you submit these opt-out requests, but that we cannot guarantee that third parties will honor the requests or remove your data.

It’s unlikely, but bad things could happen. You acknowledge that your use of the DeleteMe service may have unintended consequences, possibly including direct, special, indirect, consequential and other damages, and you agree that you won’t hold Abine liable for these consequences. (In English, not legalese: let’s say that you have a long-lost brother who’s looking for you via Intelius. Because we deleted you from Intelius, it takes him much longer to find you. You agree that you won’t sue us because you lost the opportunity to spend more time with your brother.) Also, because lawyers often make a lot of clever arguments, you agree regardless of any claim you or lawyer comes up with the most you could ever recover in any claim brought by you against Abine is the total amount of fees you actually paid to Abine over the entire time you used the DeleteMe service.

Don’t sue us because of DeleteMe. You will indemnify and hold harmless Abine, its parents, subsidiaries, customers, vendors, officers, and employees from any liability, damage or cost from any claim or demand associated with your use of the DeleteMe service or site.

You’re letting us do the work of removing your personal info from data broker websites. You grant Abine a Limited Power of Attorney to act on your behalf for the purposes of performing the DeleteMe service to control your personal information online, including submitting opt-out requests to and communicating with third-party websites like data brokers or aggregators or other parties who have control over this content, signing opt-out documents, creating accounts for you, and any other action Abine reasonably deems necessary to remove, suppress, or opt-out your personal information from unwanted sources in fulfillment of your order. This Limited Power of Attorney will remain in full force and effect until you cancel your service with Abine.

Data brokers change, so DeleteMe might change too. You acknowledge that DeleteMe’s removal list depends on the listed websites’ opt-out procedures and business practices and thus is subject to change. DeleteMe will not remove all of your information from the Internet. As such, the DeleteMe service, content and site are provided on an “as is” basis, without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including, without limitation, implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, or non-infringement. Consistent with what we stated above regarding damages, you agree that in any event, Abine’s liability is limited to fees you actually paid to Abine.

If something crazy happens, it’s not our fault. You acknowledge that Abine will not be liable for any failure to comply with these Terms to the extent that such failure arises from factors outside Abine’s reasonable control, like natural disasters.

Your Privacy

Privacy is key. Abine is dedicated to consumer privacy rights and operates the DeleteMe service under our privacy policy.

Your Organization may have some obligations. Organizations using DeleteMe who are located in Europe, and are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), act as data controller with DeleteMe as their data processor. Our Organization customers must comply with applicable data protection laws, e.g., gathering consent from employees in a documented form where required by law. Abine is not liable for any unlawful processing or data sharing that occurs as a result of, for example, missing consent(s) or other non-compliance with the applicable data protection laws.

We urge you to read our privacy policy now and revisit occasionally because we may update it. We’ll strive to make our policies understandable.

Your employer may have some obligations. Companies and other organizations who purchase DeleteMe, are located in Europe, and are subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), act as Data Controller with Abine, Inc. as their Data Processor. Our clients must comply with applicable data protection laws. For example they must gather consent from their employees or other end users in a documented form where required by law. Abine is not liable for any unlawful processing or data sharing that occurs as a result of missing consents or other non-compliance with the applicable data protection laws.

Please don’t steal our stuff. All the text, images, marks, logos, compilations (meaning the collection, arrangement, and assembly of information) and other content on Abine’s website (“Site Content”), and all software embodied in Abine’s website, applications, or otherwise (“Software”) used by to deliver the Services is proprietary to us. Except as otherwise expressly permitted by these Terms, any use, redistribution, sale, decompilation, reverse engineering, disassembly, translation, or other reduction of such software to human-readable form is prohibited. The text marks “ABINE,” “ONLINE PRIVACY STARTS HERE,” “DELETEME,” “DONOTTRACKME,” and “MASKME,” as well as their associated logos, are our trademarks, and you may not use them in connection with any service or products other than those we provide in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers, or in any manner that disparages or discredits Abine (although we’re happy to have you use our Site Content for noncommercial, educational, or news-related use if you properly attribute it to us). Any use of such marks will apply to the benefit of their respective owners.

Use our tools and services for good, not evil, or we’ll kick you out. We don’t allow our Site or Services to be used for illegal activities or activities that we find improper for any reason whatsoever. We reserve the right to take preventative or corrective actions to protect ourselves and our users from anyone’s unacceptable use. Your failure to comply with our Terms may result in us terminating your access to and use of our site and services. You are not to:

  • Impersonate anyone, falsely state or otherwise misrepresent your affiliation with any person or entity, or knowingly provide any fraudulent, misleading, or inaccurate information;
  • Defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten, or otherwise violate others’ rights, including without limitation others’ privacy rights or rights of publicity;
  • Access or use (or attempt to access or use) another user’s account without permission;
  • Transmit any software or materials that contain any viruses, worms, trojan horses, defects, or other items or computer code of a destructive nature;
  • Modify, adapt, sublicense, translate, sell, reverse engineer, decompile, or disassemble any portion of the site or services;
  • “Frame” or “mirror” any portion of the Site or Services;
  • Use any robot, spider, site search/retrieval application, or other manual or automatic device or process to retrieve, index, data mine, or in any way reproduce or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of our site or services;
  • Harvest or collect any other users’ information from the site or our services;
  • Use our site or services for any illegal activity; or
  • Probe, scan or test the vulnerability of our site or services, breach their security or authentication measures, or take any action that imposes an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our site infrastructure.

Individual Users

We’ll charge you for your subscription. You acknowledge that you’re registering for a recurring subscription and will be automatically billed at the end of the subscription billing cycle.

You have the right to cancel your DeleteMe subscription at any time, for any reason, and can do so by emailing us at or calling us at 833-335-3836. You are entitled to a full refund if you cancel before your first DeleteMe Privacy Report. If you cancel anytime after your first DeleteMe Privacy Report, you are entitled to a prorated refund based on the time remaining in your DeleteMe subscription. Upon canceling your DeleteMe subscription, Abine will cease any future billing. This refund policy does not apply if we’ve terminated your account for misuse outlined in this Agreement. Any termination of your use of the DeleteMe service, whether initiated by you or by Abine, won’t affect any of your or Abine’s rights and obligations under these Terms that have arisen before the effective date of such termination.
