City-Data information is sourced from both public and private sources and users of the site. It contains stats about all US Cities - realty, relocation information, crime, home prices, salary, schools, maps, education, weather, and more.
It is likely that the majority of the data came from government agencies like the United States Census Bureau or municipal government sources. While some users prefer to obtain this data directly from the government, others work with commercial vendors like City-Data that resell it.
City-Data contains information such as street addresses and consumer names, obtained through FOIA requests. City-Data offers an opt-out option to remove street addresses and names from the website, but not the consumer names.
If you want to keep your home address and value privacy, you should remove your information from City-Data.
To complete the City-Data opt-out process, you can request that your name be removed from your street-level address.
You have successfully opted out of City-Data. The website states that you should allow 24-48hrs for the website to reflect these changes.
City-Data will then instruct their partner sites not to display your name in their results as well. You are one step closer to online privacy. Once you have completed the City-Data opt-out process, there are 100+ websites that still collect and display your information on the internet. To opt-out of all data brokers and receive monthly monitoring and privacy reporting, NewReputation is ready to help.
