On the geocaching.com site go to settings > authorisations then tick the box that says:

Do not allow Authorized Developer applications to access my public profile informationLearn more

I dont think it stops everything though. I daresay through the T's and C's you agree to via your geocaching.com account you agree to share certain info via API.

edit: Only way to not share logs is to delete them, as per here: https://www.geocaching.com/help/index.php?pg=kb.chapter&id=27&pgid=920

My issue is my data being used to rank with others. Unlike groundspeak this site is based within the EU and as such data is governed under the local laws.

If all you want to do is stop others from seeing your stats, go to https://project-gc.com/Profile/ProfileStats and tick "Hide my profile stats from others".
