Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Is there someone that I can contact about correcting incorrect data of many locations on this site? Or where do you get your Name, Address, Phone and Website URL data from?

Thank You

I guess we have a similar questions here on the site already (with many answers), but I could not find it right now.. so - my answer below.

Hi knmille7, please see https://www.openstreetmap.org/about for how we work (in short: from volunteers like you!). And the best thing is to fix the errors yourself. Sign up, and you're welcome. Just, please keep in mind that we are not allowed to use other databases or maps for the contributions to our data (with a few explicit exceptions).

If, instead, you do not want to fix yourself or if you do not know the correct data, you could use the "notes" function (help on it) on https://www.openstreetmap.org to report wrong data.

I'm sorry. I represent a company with about 2000 locations, and manually updating each profile is not feasible. Is there anyone who I can contact to deliver the data in bulk?

@knmille7: please could you ask a new question clearly mentioning the bulk thing and that you do not want to fix yourself? Thank you! :-) This keeps this discussion more useful for others with the same questions. -> Thanks for your second question.
