Last week, the New York Times published an article titled You for Sale. It chronicled how Acxiom, one of the largest Data Brokers, has amassed the world's largest consumer database and all of your information is for sale. We believe that you should be in control of your personal information, not Data Brokers.
We built MailStop Shield to make it easy for you to stop Data Brokers from freely selling your identity. With MailStop Shield, we get Data Brokers to remove your name and address from the marketing lists that they sell. This reduces unwanted mail and protects your privacy.
Today, we are pleased to introduce you to the improved MailStop Shield.
The service removes your information from the top Data Brokers and now provides clear, easy-to-follow information so you can track the progress of your opt-outs. There are several additional Data Brokers that we are working to add to the service, including Acxiom. If you subscribe to the service, we will automatically submit your opt-out requests throughout the year as we add them.
With MailStop Shield you can take another big step toward protecting your personal information and stopping unwanted mail.
