What about Record Matching and privacy?

Record Matching automatically compares the individuals in your family tree to billions of historical records in MyHeritage’s SuperSearch and notifies you if any matches are found.

The records matched with individuals in your tree are all records within the public domain. Records are matched confidentially and the matches are only ever used for to benefit your family history research. We never divulge this information to third parties.

MyHeritage’s Smart Matching technology, which matches trees between two site managers, has settings that allow you to control privacy because two parties are viewing the information. In the case of Record Matches, the record on the other end of the match doesn’t have a site manager behind it, therefore privacy controls are not necessary.
