Date of Birth/Date of Death

  We do not remove valid dates of birth/dates of death, so please do not submit deletions. The place of birth should be in the same form as a location in the locations list, with the city (if applicable) and country, plus whatever other subdivisions are appropriate for the country (i.e., state - examples: Los Angeles, California, USA; London, England, UK, etc.) The place of birth/death should reflect the political divisions at the time. In cases where divisions or place names have changed over time, it is acceptable to show the current place names within [square brackets]. If the name of the birth place has changed, list the new name as [now ...] i.e. here. If the territory of the birth place has changed, list the name of the current territory as [now in...] i.e. here. A list of the locations currently being used can be displayed by clicking on the gray list icon ( ) next to the place field. We do not consider Wikipedia (or other collaboratively edited wiki-style sites) to be an acceptable source for birth dates. However, many Wikipedia articles include online citations and external links which provide supporting evidence of the subject's birth date, and these are often appropriate URLs to include in your submission. We are looking for links to public records, printed publications, or official documents. We do allow social media links to be an acceptable source for birthdates (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) If submitting a date of birth for a minor under 18 years of age, you must include a URL confirming the year of birth. We will no longer accept DOBs for minors without supporting evidence. We do hold some BC/BCE birth and death dates, but at the moment it's not possible to add this type of data through our submissions system. If you have data like this that you wish to add, please contact us using the form below and we'll be glad to help.



In order to prove the date is incorrect, you will need to provide proof as described above. When this is done a correction will be made, not a deletion.

I just quickly searched for your actual date of birth and can confirm (as an independent person) that the date is indeed incorrect. The IMDb does not like to remove factual data or remove or remove incorrect dates of birth without it being replaced by factual data. The IMDb regards such information as public data and, as such, does not remove the data. There is an obligation on the IMDb to correct such data but none to remove it. You may decide that the data is not so incorrect that it causes you problems and may prefer to not correct it.

This seems incredibly wrong... IMDb knows that an item about a person is wrong, but won't delete it because the person does not care to share the correct information?????  How obnoxious!  As much as I enjoy this site, this sort of thing is one reason I keep rooting for European privacy standards to take effect here.

I know it's not strictly on point here, but this community may be the only people who know, and I'm just curious:  What do people in film use for all the banking and brokerage house security questions, when their date of birth, place of birth, mother's maiden name, favorite pet, etc. are all public?

Hi Jennifer -

The birthdate listed on your page was provided and listed from the following source:



If this statement is incorrect and the birthdate listed on your page is inaccurate, you will need to submit a birthdate correction including a verifiable source (such as links to public records, printed publications, or official documents) and our editors will take another look.

I am definitely going to be requesting my birthday change AGAIN. (Which never seems to fix it) First off... Who provided that "proof"? Wasn't me. Second... The concert was on the 29th and my birthday was at midnight. This is getting ridiculous. For a service I have to pay for I am baffled that they refuse to correct my date of birth.

Jennifer, you did not say that you were trying to correct it. You asked how to delete it. I can request the correction with my source.

Michelle, sometimes people celebrate their birthdays on days other than their birthdays as it allows more people to come or it allows everyone to be there when midnight arrives.

I tried to just change it for the past couple of years and every time I would get a reply stating my Facebook page was not an official document. That's why I tried to see if I could just delete it. Now Im being told that Facebook is an official URL? I am EXTREMELY confused. If there is anyway to change it I would be happy.

Hi Jennifer -

I was unable to locate any past birthdate corrections associated with your birthdate listing (I was only able to locate past deletion requests).  With that being said, as you mentioned your birthdate was at Midnight, the day of birth has now been changed to the 30th.

If there are any further errors surrounding your birthdate that need to be corrected, note that we will need to see something more substantial than a Facebook post, we will need to see a link to a verifiable source.

I’m sorry to bud in here, but I’ve been trying to correct this since I was twenty and now I’m 79. Seriously, I need help changing my DOB IMDB has me born 08/01/1935 when in truth It is 02/13/1940. I no longer care about the year, but my sign is important. Here’s a link to My Wikipedia profile which validates my birthdate. I can also provide a photo of my birth certificate. Jennifer, please let me know how to contact you directly to fix this issue. Thanks, so much, Jane Hallaren janehallaren@gmail.com.

Greetings fellow Aquarian!
2-9-55 for me.
You can provide this info directly by using the contact us directly link provided below.
They don't accept Wiki. But your birth certificate will work. They will explain which media to use to transfer the certificate info.
First go here https://help.imdb.com/contact
You will need to select, Fan and Contributor Questions. Then select Names and biographical data. Then select Add/Update biographical data. Then Provide your Name page link. And provide the same info above.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0356284/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

This is what the page looks like.
Cheers.
Thanks for your work and the entertainment it provided.

I found a link with your full name (Jane Diane Hallaren) and another with your year and place of birth (New York) that I have submitted for a correction.

Thank you Ed, but I was born specifically in Brooklyn and it happens to be important to me. Out of curiosity, what birth date did you get? I really appreciate your time and effort to help!

Hi Jane -

I just reviewed your birthdate details and can see that the birth location is now listed as: Brooklyn, New York, USA 

Cheers!

Birthdays on profiles should be optional - so wrong that there are some with, some without and some even with dates but no years. The inconsistency is prevalent and if someone doesn't want it displayed it should get removed. Violation on personal information.

Sorry NO
California law cannot be forced upon a Washington State Corporation.
A lawsuit in California was filed and adjudicated in favor of the defendant.(IMDb)

You'd be surprised how much state law can bleed over jurisdictions especially for a big company that may have a physical footprint in another jurisdiction. So does amazon have physical locations in CA? Yes. That means they have exposure to CA law.

BTW, not relevant to the above specifically, but I believe all the lawsuits on age were done in federal court and as Ed said amazon prevailed.

Amazon and IMDb are separate corporate entities and cannot be linked together in any legal fashion.

I'll take your word for it, but I thought amazon owned and ran imdb. I thought they were closely connected because I seem to recall an ad that if one had amazon prime that you'd get a discount on imdbpro so I assumed they were one in the same.

They do own it. But for purposes of protection they are LLC's. Wholly separate by law. I have been a business owner. So I speak of this from firsthand knowledge.

When a government blocks a publisher from publishing names, birth dates or birth places of people whose accomplishments or demerits are already published, it is censorship.
