From Media Post:
An actress is suing Amazon for allegedly using information from her credit card to discover her true date of birth and append it to her public Internet Movie Database listing.
The actress, who filed suit under the pseudonym Jane Doe, says in her complaint that she created a professional profile in Amazon’s IMDb.com eight years ago. She did so under a stage name, and also evidently shaved a few years off of her real age, which her lawsuit indicates is around 40.
She alleges that Amazon’s IMDb.com could only have discovered her real age by using her credit card information to scour public records for data about her.
“Prior to subscribing to IMDbPro, there were absolutely no means by which defendants could have obtained Plaintiff’s legal name or date of birth,” she alleges in her complaint, which was filed late last week in U.S. District Court in Seattle.
