Do's & Don'ts - Permitted and Prohibited Uses
NeighborWho's mission is to give people easy and affordable access to public record information. However, laws such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act regulate
how you can use information you obtain from NeighborWho.
Using NeighborWho information in these ways violates both our Terms & Conditions and the law, and can lead to possible criminal penalties. We
take this very seriously, and reserve the right to terminate user accounts and/or report violators to law enforcement as appropriate.
Below are a few examples of some of the ways you can and can’t use public record information from NeighborWho. If you still are not sure whether your use of NeighborWho is OK, we encourage you to
review our complete Terms & Conditions, which provide the final say on how you can use information from NeighborWho, or to
Contact Us. If you wish to use information for a purpose that is not allowed by NeighborWho, please visit the website of a Consumer Reporting Agency.
