(NRAI) Is Committed to Privacy and Data Protection Around the World:
(NRAI) acknowledges both the duty of trust and care that we have to maintain the privacy of personal data we collect and store and our legal obligations as a consumer reporting agency.
Whenever data is entered into or retrieved from the (NRAI) website and with regard to data we collect from third parties and other sources for purposes of performing pre-employment screening and credential verification services, we apply the following principles:
- Use and Transfer of Information:
Our clients provide us with your personal information through our web site and other electronic means in connection with our preparing a report for such clients. Such personal information may include your history of employment and other credentials related to your prospective employment. (NRAI) will use such information only for the purposes of performing pre-employment 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 (NRAI) by our clients, (NRAI) may collect data from third parties, such as contact information, public records, biographical information, credit and other lawful sources. (NRAI) may prepare interview notes, comments from references and a record of our contact with individuals. We may provide all such information to our client (your current or prospective employer) in one or more reports. (NRAI) may also collect email correspondence from visitors to this site who send email to (NRAI).
We will never sell personal data to a third party. Although, we may hold or process your personal data that our client submits or that we collect from third parties or other sources. We may, however, disclose personal data in response to a court order or other legal obligation.
Pursuant to the FCRA, we must maintain any reports which we generate for a minimum period of two years.
If you do not wish to have your personal data made available to our client (your current or prospective employer), please do not submit any such information to us through our client. By submitting information, you are agreeing to (NRAI)’s disclosure of information that is submitted about you to our client and to our sharing that information with (NRAI) for the purpose of data processing, as described above, and to our subcontractors.
Although we make every effort to ensure that the data we collect and store about you is as accurate as possible, (NRAI) does not vouch for, and is not responsible for, the accuracy of data about you that may be supplied by our clients or any other third-party sources of information.
(NRAI) will take all appropriate measures to assure the security of personal data. (NRAI)’s web site and any data transmitted to or from it are protected by a secure socket layer (SSL) key which encrypts the data. All data is stored in a server in a secure, encrypted manner. Access to those servers is strictly limited to network administrators and other authorized personnel of (NRAI), who have been trained to protect against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction of personal data under (NRAI)’s control. We take pride in our technology and our security policies.
Personal Information Disclosure: United States or Overseas
Applicants personal information will not be transferred to third parties outside the United States or its territories. However, in those instances where our client has requested an international background check, i.e., court records, employment or education verification we will attempt to contact the employer or school directly. If we have to use a researcher to complete this verification assignment, we will only release minimal information in order to safeguard the applicants personally identifiable information (PII).
