A person has the right to keep their personal information out of public view. All the necessary lists for severe criminal history and backgrounds are in place, i.e. sex offenders. What more information should be available to the general public? Certainly not current and previous addresses and phone numbers, names of related family members, dates of birth and the state your drivers license is issued out of! Have you ever filed a bankruptcy? Do you want friends and neighbors to know you had financial troubles? What about civil law, even criminal law, history? Should that be available to just anybody? All of this information, both negative and positive, can be obtained too easily and used for all the wrong reasons at an unreasonably low price thru "Data Brokers" on the internet.
