FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What's the difference between public records, publicly available information, and non-public information? These terms refer to the source of the information. The following definitions have been agreed by various information industry and government groups:

  • Public Records are compiled by various public offices and agencies with the intent and for the purpose of being made publicly available. Examples of public records include real estate records, lien filings, business entity filings (such as corporate registrations), lawsuit information and court dockets, court decisions, and birth, marriage, divorce and death records.
     
  • Publicly Available Information generally originates with the individual himself or herself and is provided in the course of routine business transactions such as ordering telephone service, placing catalog orders, making retail purchases, and joining book clubs. Published telephone numbers, household demographics, street addresses, and church and school alumni directory information all fall within the category of publicly available information. Information contained in newspapers and magazines (such as news reports and birth, death and marriage notices) is also considered to be publicly available.
     
  • Private or Non-Public Information is not generally available from public records or commercial sources. Non-public information includes information that is protected from disclosure by law or by custom, such as medical records, employment records, tax returns, and personal financial records.

CAN I REMOVE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM PUBLIC RECORDS DATABASES?

Accordingly, because individuals cannot opt out of public records databases generally, TroyTheLocator.com its websites, software and applications including Troy Alert does not offer individuals the opportunity to opt out of our public records databases.
