Hello IMDb staff,

We would like to thank you for all your consistent hard work in improving IMDb.
We've been trying to remove the date of birth and place of birth for one of our clients. Unfortunately not only the information is not correct but it was also added randomly without our permission and without accurate verification. When we tried removing the date of birth and place of birth from the IMDb settings it didn't go through and that's the reason why we are contacting you. Here's a link to our client's page:
We are willing to provide official verification but its very important that you guys don't attach the information on the page as of this point, its very important that the place of birth and date of birth remains unapparent on the actor's IMDb page as it might negatively effect his career. Please guide us through the process.

Thank you,

Nicole Slater

Hoang v., Inc. et al.
(initially filed as Doe v., Inc. et al.)
is a lawsuit brought by actress Junie Hoang in October 2011
against and its parent company
for revealing her true date of birth,
which she said opened her up to age discrimination.
In March 2013, all of her claims against Amazon
and all but one of her claims against IMDb were dismissed,
and in April 2013,
a jury found that IMDb was not liable
for the remaining claim for breach of contract;
the verdict was upheld on appeal

Two actors' unions, SAG and AFTRA, supported Hoang,
saying that IMDb was "facilitating age discrimination".

After the lawsuit was decided,
the unions pressed the California legislature to enact legislation
requiring Internet sites to remove birth dates and ages of entertainers
upon their request.
The legislature enacted the law, Assembly Bill 1687,
in September 2016.[19] In February 2018,
U.S. District Judge Vince Chhabria struck down the
law as violating the First Amendment

So why do they still refuse birth date changes?
