Public information from your profile will also be temporarily accessible via the Stack Exchange Data Explorer. It's in the Users table and your ID appears in the URL of your profile.

If your question relates to accidentally having deleted some data from your profile that you want back, this could be helpful, since it's only updated once a week (every Sunday morning around 3:00 UTC, to be exact).
