Question: have active order of protection against my spouse currently, states no contact in any form, is my spouse legally able to hire a third party company to serve me? And what info about me that they find are they legally allowed to provide to my spouse? What are their restrictions? Our location, schools, work, housing, and phone numbers are marked as confidential

Answer: I assume from the way your question is worded that you are talking about your ex hiring a process server to serve you with papers.  Courts generally would not consider process service to be "contact."   A process server will supply your ex with an affidavit of service that tells him when and where you were served.
