Notice – Our clients provide us with your personal information in connection with our preparing a background screening report. (These reports are referred to by several different names including: Background Report, Consumer Report, Investigative Consumer Report, Background Screening Report, Background Check, and others.) In all cases, our clients have certified to Advanced Reporting that they have provided the required disclosures to you that a background investigation will be performed and that Private Information may be gathered for the purpose of completing the Background Investigation Report. Our clients further certify to us that they will receive your consent before a Background Investigation Report is requested. Advanced Reporting will use your Private Information only for the purposes of performing background screening and credential verification services, including to verify the accuracy of the personal information and to check on references. In addition to the data that is submitted to Advanced Reporting by our clients, Advanced Reporting may collect data from third parties as needed to process academic, residential, achievement, job performance, attendance, litigation, personal history, credit reports, driving records, criminal history records and other lawful checks. A Background Investigation Report may be prepared summarizing this information. Prior employers and/or references may be contacted, and the report may include information obtained through personal interviews regarding the applicant’s character, general reputation, personal characteristics and/or mode of living. We may provide all such information to our client in one or more reports. Advanced Reporting may also collect email correspondence from visitors to this site who send email to Advanced Reporting. Advanced Reporting has established appropriate security standards to protect against unauthorized access to member information.
Choice – If you are a U.S. resident and you do not wish to have your personal data made available to our client, please do not authorize our client to procure a Background Investigation Report. By consenting to the procurement of a Background Investigation Report, and submitting information to our client, you are agreeing to allow Advanced Reporting to disclose information about you to our client and to our sharing that information with our subcontractors.
Access – You have the right of access to any reports Advanced Reporting produces and maintains on you. You may contact Advanced Reporting at any time to determine whether we hold any personal information about you and to obtain access to that information. For your protection, we will require proof of identity, including proper verification and confirmation that you are the individual who is entitled to request access, before providing information to you. If, for good reason, we are unable to provide you with access to your data or to correct data, we will let you know. If you are a U.S. resident, a copy of the report about you will be mailed within 7 days, in the same form as provided to our client, at no charge (as mandated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act.).
Disclaimer – This policy does not address every possible contingency and circumstance. Rather, it is intended to provide guidance to Advanced Reporting staff, vendors and clients and is not intended to create enforceable legal rights for any individual. Advanced Reporting does not bear any responsibility for actions or policies of third party affiliates or non-affiliates. Advanced Reporting reserves the right to change this policy at any time, with or without notice.
