ZoomInfo Releases Statement Regarding O'Donnell Profile

September 30, 2010 — Waltham, MA — ZoomInfo ( – a leading provider of continuously updated information about businesses and employees – released the following statement today regarding the ZoomInfo profile of Delaware Republican senatorial candidate Christine O'Donnell.

ZoomInfo creates profiles from three sources: Web-crawling, community contributions and data individuals provide about themselves through a process we call "claiming a profile."

In 2008, O'Donnell's profile was claimed through ZoomInfo's double opt-in process, which requires response to a verification e-mail message. ZoomInfo's privacy policy prohibits us from releasing the email address that was used when O'Donnell's profile was claimed. We can say, however, that the email address was not of an anonymous nature – that is, the address was not from a personal free email service and contained identifying information. ZoomInfo's Terms of Service require users to agree that they will not "impersonate any person or entity or falsely state or otherwise misrepresent" their affiliation with a person or entity.

All persons who claim profiles on ZoomInfo have the opportunity to review, update, delete and change information that ZoomInfo has compiled from other sources. In addition, persons who claim their profiles may add information of their choosing, including employment and educational history. All employment history (titles and companies), educational background, etc. is "locked" when the registrant claims the profile. Our automated system does not add any new titles, companies or educational records to claimed profiles, even if we find new Web articles and update a profile with these references.

Apart from the statement above, any information that has been communicated about O'Donnell's ZoomInfo profile does not represent the official statement of ZoomInfo.
