An alarming number of sites publish your name, address, and other information online. If you want to remove your data from sites like ZabaSearch and WhitePages.com, reddit user pibbman has compiled a helpful list of them with links to the opt-out forms and instructions.
For most of these sites you just need to fill out an online form to have your information removed. A few annoying ones require more hoops to jump through. It's a worthwhile endeavor, though: since these are the major public record/background check sites, removing your name from all of them should get you removed from the smaller ones too, pibbman says.
