If it is the truth, yes: anyone may tell any other persons any true facts that he or she or knows about another person, unless he or she had signed some confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement in which they agreed to not divulge that information. Untrue factual claims about you may be defamation, but true factual statements are legal.
