Just a quick post on ways in which your Cruise Director will try to protect your personal information such as home address, etc.
Since filings in bankruptcy court are accesible to the public, it is still possible that someone could use PACER to access any of the filings (especially those with mailing certificates). Do not be surprised if third-party vendors do this and you see an increase in mail for unsolicited offers. I’ve experienced this with any type of court filing and even when buying my home.
But here at Heller Highwater when documents are posted in the Bankruptcy section, I will work to not include such information whenever possible. These are the following steps I will take:
– when possible redact the original document so that home address and other information is not visible; and
– if redaction is not possible, split off the mailing certificate from the rest of the PDF document.
The mailing certificate contains the names of all recipients of the document and right now the employee names listed are those from the 12/29/2009 Verified List of Creditors.
