PEOPLEFINDERS.COM PARTNERS WITH REPUTATIONDEFENDER TO HELP PROTECT CONSUMER PRIVACY

Partnership Provides Consumers with More Power to Protect
Their Identities and Personal Information

Sacramento, CA – October 29, 2008 – PeopleFinders.com (www.peoplefinders.com), the premier online service that helps consumers quickly find and connect with anyone, anywhere, today announced that it has partnered with ReputationDefender (www.reputationdefender.com), the world's leading comprehensive online reputation management and privacy company. Through the partnership, PeopleFinders.com will provide users with the ability to opt-out of the PeopleFinders.com database via ReputationDefender's MyPrivacy product – thus removing their personal information and contact details from search results.

As the only people search service that owns billions of public records spanning the last 40 years, PeopleFinders.com is sensitive to the fact that some individuals prefer not to be found. When ReputationDefender users opt to remove their personal information from the PeopleFinders.com database, PeopleFinders.com will allow for the seamless removal of that information from its systems. Together, this partnership enables PeopleFinders.com and ReputationDefender to provide additional value to customers and improve personal privacy on the Internet.

"Our goal is to help educate consumers by providing them with useful and accurate information about people and businesses," said Bryce Lane, president and COO of PeopleFinders.com. "At the same time, we respect consumer privacy and are collaborative in our approach to helping individuals monitor and manage their online identities. Through our partnership with ReputationDefender, the leading online personal privacy company, consumers can easily control what personal information is available through our service."

"ReputationDefender's mission is to help people present an accurate and positive online identity and deliver to consumers more control over what information is available about them online," said Michael Fertik, CEO and founder of ReputationDefender. "This partnership demonstrates PeopleFinders.com's commitment to personal privacy and provides consumers with the opportunity to manage the amount of personal information available about them online."

MyPrivacy, ReputationDefender's personal privacy product, helps users remove personally identifiable information such as name, address and phone number from the largest people search databases on the Web.
