Our Commitment to Your Privacy

Your privacy is very important to us. We want you to have choices (within the laws) in the way your information is collected and used, and want you to understand those choices. To help with that, we explain below how we gather our online information. We also provide this information about our privacy policy on our home page, and at every point where we need to request your personal identity information.

The Information We Collect

The information you read here applies to all the information that we collect from you, and about you, on the BackgroundReport.com web site. On some pages, you can order services, make requests, and sign up for online access. On these pages, we will collect several kinds of information, such as:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Phone number

We also require that all users of this web site validate their identity when they first open an account with us. This validation reduces identity theft and fraud. When we validate your identiy, we will ask for:

How We Use Your Information

When you provide information while placing an order with us, we use that information only to complete that order. We do not share this information with any outside person, except where absolutely necessary to complete the order you have placed with us for screening.

We use your email address to let you know what is happening with your order, with your account, and we use it to respond to your inquiries. Your email address won't be used for any other purpose or shared with anyone outside our company without your express consent.

We will not, unless ordered by a law enforcement agency, disclose your personal information, or any information you provide to us, to any other person or company without your express consent.

We are a consumer reporting agency, so we value and respect how confidential your own information is. We strictly adhere to the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

Our Commitment to the Security of Your Data

We want, always, to:

  • Prevent unauthorized access to your information.
  • Maintain accurate data.
  • Ensure the correct use of the information we gather.

To accomplish that, we have physical, electronic, and management procedures to safeguard and secure all the information we collect online. We use the latest SSL technology, employing 256-bit encryption when processing all sensitive data.
