Purpose of Information
We collect information primarily for the purposes of screening on behalf of employers, landlords, and other entities that have a legitimate reason for requesting the information, and only with the written, unambiguous consent from the individual subject to our inquiries. The information we collect is not used for any other purpose. It is not sold or distributed to any other parties, or used to compile direct-mail lists.
Data Storage, Retention and Destruction
Information used in the process of compiling consumer reports is electronically retained and archived in a secure environment that is password protected from unauthorized use for specific periods of time, as prescribed by law or statute. Any hard copies of consumer information used in the process of compiling consumer reports are stored in locked file cabinets located in a restricted access area within our secure facility. Once information in hard copies is no longer needed to compile a consumer report, hard copies are shredded onsite.
Security of Data
Data is transmitted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption and is stored in a secure environment accessible only to the client who requested the report and to authorized personnel who work directly on the report.
