Hi there! I would like to add my birthday to my IMDb web page, but I'm not sure how to go about it since I can't find any 'proof' online. Is the process different if you wish to add your own birth date? Also, I think I should point out that I am a IMDbPro member.

Hope you can help,

Keep in mind that the IMDb would require that you add your full birthdate, including year, and they won't remove the information if you later change your mind about having it publicly available.

If you're certain that you really want your age available on the IMDb forever then you could post evidence (birth certificate, passport, etc) someplace secure online and send a link to the IMDb via the form here: http://www.imdb.com/helpdesk/data_verification.

Courtney: I just want to endorse the first paragraph of Sienel's response. If you submit your birthdate to IMDb, they will NEVER remove it. So if later in your life you find that you are being subjected to age discrimination, you will be stuck with having your birthdate on your IMDb page nevertheless. (And the data from IMDb gets copied onto other sites, with or without IMDb's permission, so your birthdate will probably be posted on other sites too.)

Thank you so much for all your input!! It's definitely making me question if I really do want my birthdate on there now. Hope you have a great day!

Much Appreciated,
Courtney :)
