Use a data removal service
If data removal is your goal, Abine has another product/service called DeleteMe. For $99 a year, the company will delete your personal information from companies that collect and sell that info. Some caveats – DeleteMe only goes in and deletes information at specific aggregator sites, not the Internet at large. And you need to tell DeleteMe what you want deleted. In other words, you can’t say, "Delete all my addresses." You have to fill out a form and enter the specific addresses you want deleted. The company also goes back every quarter and conducts another sweep of the same sites, as long as you’re paying the $99 a year. The assumption being that the info can quickly pop back up again.
