Hello, California just passed a law requiring IMDB to remove someone's age if they request. I request to have mine removed immediately. How do I make that a formal request? IMDB does not have a traditional 'contact us' form? Thanks to anyone who can help! Best, John

Thank you for sharing your concerns with us.

We are committed to providing complete factual information related to films, television and people involved in the entertainment industry, including birth dates and other biographical data.

While we're more than happy to update our info or rectify, upon verification, any inaccuracies in our data, it has always been ourĀ  long-standing policy not to alter or delete any kind of factual information or credit that we believe to be correct from our records, as doing so would greatly undermine the accuracy and reliability of our database.

IMDb is currently engaged in litigation with the California Attorney General challenging the constitutionality of California Bill AB 1687. While litigation pertaining to AB 1687 is in progress, IMDb will not be removing birth date or age data subject to the bill.
