I'd like to know more about you matter. Is it a debt collection or credit reporting issue? Please feel free to contact me directly by visiting my website: kaidenlaw.com.

First,l I am not sure this belongs in this topic, unless this is somehow related to the collection of a debt.
Businesses generally can share information - but it depends. Every year (usually) along with your credit card or insurance bills, there will be a privacy notice. A business with whom you have a business relationship can share your personal information with other affiliated businesses. Or when you sign up at some store for a card, they can sometimes take your information and sell it to others. Same thing when you sign up at a site on the internet - we all gloss over the licensing agreements and such and its easy to click something by accident or fail to remove a click. If that happens, your infomation is out there and you will be inundated by junk unless you opt out of it.
The credit bureaus also package your details and sell these off. That is why some people get pre-approved for credit offers. Again, you have to opt out of such things to cut down on this.
If you are asking about a debt collector, then the answer is no. They cannot discuss your debts with third-parties.
Thus the answer is maybe and maybe not.
