zaba search alerts

Is it possible to obtain any information about registered zabasearch alerts?

Info such as which email addresses have an alert registered on a given name.
Or, for a given email address, which alerts it has registered?

I did find a way of performing a zaba search without triggering an alert, so
I'm hoping these other hacks may be out there.

Wouldn't that infringe some privacy or ethics? As for the latter, some people
have sought tools of finding out which domains are owned by a particular
person (on It's unlikely to become a reality. As for the
former, Web 2.0 sites tend to achieve this effect. What is Zaba by the way?
Never came across it...

I can imagine what Zaba is achieving. You could possible include some odd
character that would avoid an obvious alert from being flagged and at the
same time be delivered the results you want.

Hope it helps,

Zaba is:

which is a people/phone/address finder.  Free and very thorough.

It has this unusual feature that you can register an "alert" with it, so
that I could ask it to email me any time anyone searched for my name "chip
orange", and it would, without the searchers knowledge or permision, send me
an email telling me not only that I was searched for, but giving me the IP
info of the searcher, with likely city of origin!
