We started back in 1995 as a hobby of the founder while he was getting his PhD. In 2010 we got serious and added customer service and toll-free support. We were a lean and scrappy people search company frustrated with the scams and tricks used by others in the industry and decided to offer good data with transparent pricing.
No Setup Fees, No Monthly Minimums, and DIY Data services users could access any time of day or night. Today, we're a small nimble ecommerce company on the San Diego California Coast and we'd love nothing more than to help solve your business data problems. We know that bad data is bad for business, how can we help you?
