https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/tosdr/ZJMKiuqgH7s/tcQkGh1eHxQJ The subscription to the Community Edition of Zoominfo requires subscribers to provide unfettered access to their email address book.
Zoominfo then takes any "business-related" contact information from the subscriber's address book and uses it to increase the "size and quality" of its online database.
When one clicks on the Truste link, one gets the following message:
"This site is NOT CERTIFIED by TRUSTe."
Zoominfo provides subscribers with no choice other than to allow Zoominfo Community Edition subscribers to provide unfettered access to their contacts database. Only the "uninformed victims" of this exercise, ie the user's contacts, have the option to opt out but not until it is too late unless Zoominfo proposes sending an email to each of them to inform them that unless they take some action they will be added to Zoominfo's database.
"By signing up to the Community Edition of Zoominfo you agree to allow Zoominfo to mine your email address book for the information of your friends and associates and anyone else in your address book and store that information in our database for retrieval and display in our Zoominfo directory."
The warning could be a lot more succinctly if preceded by the words "Caution".
