What Difficulties Exist when Opting Out of

Although directions for opting out of having one's information available on the search are relatively straightforward, the service only accepts requests through fax and mail, rather than online or by email. This requirement can make opting out a more laborious process, as physical copies of each required item are needed for the request to be valid, and there are specific requirements. Requests that are not signed, are collected improperly, or are missing things will not be processed and face immediate dismissal by the Opt-Out Compliance Department. Because shipping through the mail can be unpredictable, requests are often not processed for up to six weeks.

It is also possible that parties who have opted out may still find that their information appears in search results. Often, this can happen if the opt-out request failed to include a particular record, making it subject to search. Parties experiencing this error or other problems with the opt-out services provided can contact the CIS Nationwide customer service at
