e-Merges compiles and publishes 500 million public records every year, ranging from registered voters, hunting/fishing permit holders, pilots, aircraft owners, political campaign donors, watercraft owners and other databases.
The site cleans and enhances the data with attributes like phones and updated addresses. Then, they make it available to relevent permitted or non-restricted clients such as investigative or law enforcement, commercial marketing and political campaigns. Some of the data is currently being evaluated for identity authentication applications.
