    What is ZoomInfo.com?

    ZoomInfo.com is a popular data broker website that provides more business-to-business information. 

    Because it is a B2B platform it provides information more targeted towards sales, marketing, recruitment and lead generation. The data is maintains and sells might not be as harmful as some other data brokers, but it can be significantly more annoying if people are buying your contact information to try to sell you on their services.

    The information on ZoomInfo.com can pose reputational concerns for both businesses and individuals. For businesses, they might want to remove a former employee that they no longer want to be associated with from their directory, while individuals might want to remove an employer from their profile if they don’t want to be associated with the business.

    ZoomInfo.com, like other similar websites, sources its information from public records and other publicly available sources. 

    According to their own FAQ page, they get their information from community contributors, through machine learning from online job postings and other online sources and other third-party sources.

    Why you should remove your information from ZoomInfo.com

    Data brokers like ZoomInfo.com collect and sell personal data, often without your consent. This can lead to an increase in unwanted marketing and inaccurate information about you being available online.

    Having personal information about yourself online can put you at greater risk of identity theft, doxxing, stalking and other forms of online and potentially physical harassment. With ZoomInfo specifically, one of the major concern is with people attacking your livelihood by sending fake or unwanted personal information about you to your employer.

    Some data brokers often use unclear language. They suggest that paying for detailed reports can reveal more detailed information court records, lawsuits, and arrest records. This is true even if you’ve never even gotten something as meaningless as a parking ticket. These sites also sell ads to questionable advertisers. These advertisers might imply you have a legal history, even when you don’t.

    Ultimately, it’s about having control over your own information. It’s your right to decide who has access to your details and for what purpose.

    Removing your info from data brokers is a way to regain some of that control over your digital footprint and online privacy.

    What kind of information is available on ZoomInfo.com?

    ZoomInfo.com is primarily a B2B business and employee directory site but they also provide extensive information about phone numbers and email addresses. The information they aggregate about people and make available online includes but is not limited to:

    • First Name
    • Last Name
    • Job Title
    • Employer
    • Employer Location
    • Employer Address
    • Employment History
    • Phone Number
    • Previous Phone Numbers
    • Email Address
    • Previous Email Addresses
    • Coworkers

    How did ZoomInfo.com get my information?

    Sites like ZoomInfo.com gather their data from a few different sources, usually blending public records with other private data that they purchase.

    • Public records: This can be anything from voter registrations, property deeds, court records, and marriage licenses.
    • Business records: Similar to public records, if you run a business, some of that information is available for anyone to lookup, these sites just bring it all together.
    • Credit Bureaus and Financial Institutions: While they don’t directly share credit history without consent, they can make some basic information available under some circumstances.
    • Telecom Companies: They get lists of subscribers from phone companies to build their databases of phone numbers and addresses.
    • Social Media and Other Online Sources: Publicly available information from social media profiles and other online platforms like LinkedIn can be scraped and aggregated.
    • Third-party Data Brokers: They can buy information from data brokers who specialize in aggregating personal data. 

    A lot of this information is what you might not realize you’re giving away when you sign up for things online. That information, depending on how it is collected, can be bought and sold in bulk. This is kind of like a less malicious version of the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
