Diablo® III

3rd party Profiles

doubtful you could get them to take it down. Seeing as how your profile is visible on Blizzard's site as well, with the addition of the new API changes, people can get your information even more (except logon stuff of course). What's the harm of them posting it on their site as opposed to it being just on Blizzard's site?

Privacy is up to the discretion of the application developer. As a developer myself the 2 issues I can see with your request is:

1) It harms the integrity of a ranking website such as that
2) There's no easy way to automatically verify ownership of a battletag

Blizzard doesn't require devs to honor requests such as that so you can expect many of them will be ignored.

I never gave Blizzard permission to share any of my information with 3rd parties.
DiabloProgress keeps a list of profile tags, this can be sold or copied by people who can spam friend requests (such as the gold sellers who are always trying to send me friend requests.)

How do I view your friends?
I'm pretty sure that feature is only available to yourself as you can't view mine.
