It is the intent of this site to protect all data that is not a part of public record. The only deviation to this is an adoption and year-of-birth. Data about an adoption is not a public record. If the mention of an adoption is emotionally troubling to the parents of the adopted individual, such data will be removed until the adopted individual is an adult. At this point in time, it is the opinion of the site manager that a person who has reached the age of 21 should have been informed of the adoption. This reasoning comes about due the medical issues that could arise in which the adopted person may need to have such knowledge to sustain their life. As to birth dates, until the death of an individual or the granting of permission in writing, only the year will be displayed. If the display of the year of birth of a minor is an issue of concern for the parents, the year of birth will be removed as soon as possible.
Any private information gathered on a living individual, other than a divorce, is stored on a separate off-site hard-drive and such information will be display after the death of the individual.
