It looks like they mainly populate their data with public records.  I found information on family members and they have some of the details mixed up from past records.  I'm certain several of them don't post anything online or have any sort of online identity.  One of them doesn't use a computer.

If you posted stuff on facebook or linkedin or other sites and had your data public at some point, they'll likely get those too.

A simple work-around to that is to log in and post false information to pollute their data.  Add some typos or such in their records.

Here's the MyLife FAQ that includes information on removing the data.

Alumni.net has contact information here.
http://wiki.alumni.net/wiki/Alumni.NET:Help#Contact_Us

If you prefer to just pollute the data, you just need to register for their site and enter false information.  Click on the Join Now button near the top right on the MyLife site and the register link near the top right on the Alumni.net site.  You should probably create a separate email that's not related to anything else you use if you plan on doing that.
