Where does this information come from?
Our service provides information obtained from public records, phone book directories, white pages databases, and other sources.
Does this include information about international emails?
Email Finder's social networking search is not bound to geography, which means you can find the name, pictures, and web links for a person by typing in their email address (regardless of where they're from - as long as they have social profiles online).
For searches by name, the email address results are U.S. persons only. We do not have email addresses or people search information for people outside of the United States.
How do I edit or remove my information in this directory?
We take your privacy very seriously. If you wish to have your name and email address removed from our directory, please use our opt-out request form.
Which social networks can I search?
Search results include members of LinkedIn, Facebook, Friendster, Bebo, Hi5, MySpace, and a dozen other social media websites.
How many searches can I conduct as a member?
You can conduct an unlimited number of searches during your membership term, as outlined in our terms and conditions. Bulk searches, shared logins, and automated tools are strictly prohibited. Violators will be prosecuted.
How does the membership billing work?
Your membership will automatically renew upon expiration at the same price and terms unless you decide to cancel. A reminder email will be sent to you before we renew your membership.
How does the money back guarantee work?
Your satisfaction is our #1 priority. If we can't help you find the information you're looking for, you may request a refund within 60 days of your original purchase. Please note that all sales are final after 60 days.
