Hi! I have now twice tried to let IMDB know that I would like my biography removed from my homepage completely, yet no action has been taken! Who do I contact for this query? Surely it shouldn't take weeks to resolve such a simple request?! Thanks

Hi, Maya Helena de Bresser.

Sorry, but no. Not so simple. 
Please follow the official guidelines:
It is our policy not to remove biographies in their entirety, unless we first receive an updated or amended version. However, if you are aware of inaccuracies or breaches of policy contained within an existing biography and bring them to our attention, we will investigate and if appropriate, remove or amend the items. 

Please note that replacing a biography that fits our guidelines and contains a good deal of background information with one containing almost no interesting information will be considered the same as attempting to delete a biography.
Thank you for understanding.

Thank you for the quick reply - so if I understand correctly, a biography is mandatory for every client?
If this is the case, where could I send my amended version to please?

I would not say a biography is mandatory for every client. But since it is submitted, checked against existing data and approved, then it is factual part of the base. And any further updates, if they are correct and may be verified, are highly appreciated.

Instead of requesting the removal of your biography, please submit a correction request to update the biography, as it is described on the Help page: https://help.imdb.com/article/contribution/names-biographical-data/how-can-i-delete-or-update-my-bio...#

If then you have any further questions, please address them here.
