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

I disclose it because if I were asked to physically exert myself I would in all likelihood have a stroke.
So I do not hide it.
It is unfair to my employer not to disclose ACTUAL facts.
That is why I am self employed and have pursued a new career in the entertainment industry. I was a highly trained tech worker in a field that required stamina.
I am a DJ, MC, and voice specialist with some standup work.
All in small town America.
I'm now outside of L.A.
I still eek out a living but am hoping that my voice work and photography work gets me on a different revenue path.
I'm actually really good at playing older than I am.

Why can we not get birth date removed from IMDB - it is not public record and not everyone has is posted, some don't have the year only the date, so why the vast discrepancy with profiles?

I'm sure it's changed over time, but how did/does most of the birth dates get onto imdb? Are they input by persons for themselves (or their rep) or by fans?  If the former, then that's one issue, but if the latter it seems like it's moot because there are other places that fans can upload the info.
I just ask because of the requirements to get a birth date put on the system which I just glanced at.

Does this mean we can have birthday removed for the non paying post ?

If any law is enacted that says that any entity must remove a valid date of birth if requested, then a can of worms have been opened. My employer has no right to see it. The U.S. Government has no right to see it. It sets a dangerous president in law. If you have been granted a right that is deemed good for the goose but not the gander, then what good is that law in the first place.
The California law is unconstitutional.

IMDb at this time removes no D.O.B.'s.

California law cannot force itself on a company from another state.
A federal law can only do that

I have requested over 10+ times to have my DOB removed. Please can it be deleted?
