PrivacyDuck.com a San Francisco-based Internet Privacy start-up in its second year of operation is helping people regain control of their personal info and online safety through two new tools. A free DIY section helps people directly control their privacy site-by-site, while a paid data removal and monitoring service that blocks most all people search sites and sources offers regular, custom reporting back to the user.
Nearly every individual - yourself likely included - has their private, personal information such as name, address, date of birth, phone number, email address, and names of relatives readily available in a few clicks on a rapidly-growing amount of “people search” sites websites that store, collect, and sell personal information at the cost of your privacy and safety.
PrivacyDuck.com was founded in 2013 by Will McAdam, a Silicon Valley data removal expert and former director of Reputation.com's Executive Privacy service during its 2012 turnaround. PrivacyDuck was founded out of a dream to give users more direct control over their own data: “You don't pay us or any company to instantly delete you from the Internet you pay us to go through the detailed work and time of doing a complete job for you, in what is really an intricate process. If an individual wishes to tackle it themselves, we provide a complete way for free. We'd be hypocritical not to,” says McAdam.
PrivacyDuck.com's professional personal information removal services start at just $99 for quarterly removal from and monitoring of over 70 people search sites. VIP Internet Privacy, offering monthly removal and monitoring services, is $500/year. Expanded Family and Corporate Bundles are also available.
