Protection of Your Information
When you submit information to our Web Site, it is protected with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) data encryption. This includes background screening information and other information you provide us. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Personally identifiable information (PII) is protected from unauthorized or accidental disclosure and is only seen by those persons who need it to perform their job to provide the services authorized by you.
Background Screening Information
AmeriWide Screeners, LLC (“AmeriWide”) is a consumer reporting agency. It is required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C. §1681 et seq. (“FCRA”) to maintain the confidentiality of all consumer information.
When you submit an application for Background Screening with AmeriWide Screeners, we use this information for screening purposes only. This information is used only with your knowledge and authorization with the understanding the information is being used for screening purposes only. Screening purposes include the requested background searches and the use of the data in an anonymous way, such as statistical data on criminal conviction rates, fraudulent application rates, or other analytical purposes. However, we may be required, upon receipt of a court order to release the information in civil or criminal litigation, or as otherwise required by law, to disclose information regarding a consumer to law enforcement agencies.
We do not maintain a database of consumer information.
Generally, we do not transfer information to third parties outside of the United States or its territories. Such transfers would be done if necessary to complete an international background check (e.g., conducting an international criminal check or verifying educational or employment records outside of the U.S.).
