Personal information disclosure: united states or overseas

Eagle Screen believes that sending consumers’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII) information off-shore (outside of the United States and its territories) places consumers at risk and should be avoided whenever possible. Additionally, we believe that if PII is sent to other countries, consumers should be made aware of this practice. In support of these beliefs, Eagle Screen belongs to Concerned CRAs (http://www.concernedcras.com), a group of like-minded CRAs dedicated to consumer protection. All members of this group, including Eagle Screen, have self-certified that they adhere to the following principles:

Domestic Background Screening: Where a CRA is providing background screening services for consumers in the United States based upon information available in the U.S., a firm displaying the Concerned CRA seal certifies it does not send data outside the U. S. or its territories for processing or preparation of a background report or for any other reason. All work is done in the U.S.

International Screening: Where there is an international background check for verification of employment education or a professional degree, or for a criminal record check, some information may have to go off-shore by necessity since the information being sought is off-shore. However, firms displaying the ConcernedCRA seal have taken the following measures to protect personal and confidential data:

a. Documentation or information such as passport numbers or unique identification numbers and date of birth are not sent to anyone overseas other than the actual verification provider, e.g. employer or school registrar, whenever possible.

b. Where it is necessary to utilize a local firm, the local firm will first be asked to provide local contact information so that the CRA can contact the foreign verifying party directly.

c. If due to infrastructure or other issues in a foreign country a foreign research firm must perform the verification, then the CRA or its agent has properly vetted the local firm, and will redact any unnecessary information.

Where a CRA utilizes a third party service to perform domestic or international services in connection with providing background reports, firms that adopted this standard have made reasonable inquires to ensure that any provider is also following this standard.
