Someone has created a person object with my personal details in the RIPE Database. Why did they do this?

Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) put information about their customers in the RIPE Database. This is usually because you have signed an agreement with the ISP to obtain Internet services from them and given your consent to publish your personal details in the RIPE Database. If you are unhappy with this, please contact your ISP. If you cannot resolve this issue with your ISP, the RIPE NCC has a procedure to handle the Removal of Personal Data from the RIPE Database.
