Our clients provide us with personally identifiable information of individuals, such as their applicants, so that we may prepare a report upon their request. (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 Datasource Background Screening Services that they will provide disclosure to the subject of the report that a background investigation will be performed and that personal data may be gathered for the purpose of completing the Background Investigation Report. Our clients further certify to us that they will receive consent from the individual before a Background Investigation Report is requested. Personal information gathered may include employment and academic history, driver's license information, reference information and other credentials related to an individual. Datasource Background Screening Services will use such 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 references. In addition to the data that is submitted to Datasource Background Screening Services by our clients, Datasource Background Screening Services 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 background 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 or other methods, regarding the individual's character, general reputation, personal characteristics and/or mode of living. We may provide all such information to our client (for example, your current or prospective employer) in one or more reports. We will retain your information within our database only as long as is needed to accomplish the business purpose for which it was collected. (Currently Datasource Background Screening Services retains information for seven years to meet the liability provisions of the FCRA and the terms and conditions of contracts with some of our information sources, such as State Departments of Motor Vehicles.) Datasource Background Screening Services may also collect email correspondence from visitors to this Site who send email to Datasource Background Screening Services. Our dedicated Applicant Services Department is available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT Monday through Friday to take your call and answer any questions you may have. (800) 431-8315. Choice
