Is there a service like DeleteMe for the EU?

There’s Jumbo Privacy. It seems like a good replacement for DeleteMe :

Mhmm. Not really what i’m looking for. I’m looking for a service to reduce my digital footprint, just like DeleteMe does.

Yeah… In the EU, we lack any alternative to DeleteMe. At this point, I cannot help you. Sorry!

Actually, i just found this:

Did you end up testing it? Would you mind sharing your experience?

I really like the concept of services such as deleteme (deleting your personal information from data brokers) but one thing that I dislike about them is the fact, in my limited understanding of things, I imagine they then collect your personal information for themselves… and you pay them for that :smiley: Of course I understand I may be wrong but when I read their privacy policy from there Legal - JoinDeleteMe which quote :

We may share your personal information with our corporate subsidiaries and any other individual, corporation, partnership, joint venture, limited liability entity, governmental authority, unincorporated organization, trust, association, or other entity that directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, DeleteMe (“Affiliates”) for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

logically my first idea is that if I register with them then they may share my personal information with others. And at this point I have no idea if I want to spend money on them and trust them to «delete me» but at the same time trust them that they won’t share/sell the personal information I give them ?

What do you think ?

IANAL but this doesn’t sound so bad actually. If you simplify the language and distill it down, it sounds to me like that are basically saying they may share your info with other parts of themselves (any other [entity] that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, DeleteMe).

This doesn’t seem to grant them permission to share any data with actual 3rd parties (but of course they must, the entire purpose of the service is to interact with 3rd parties on your behalf, and in the context of opting out from data brokers, they must often provide personal information to confirm your identity to complete the opt-out, so I imagine elsewhere in the privacy policy this will be outlined somewhere).
