Purpose of Data Collection

Information Obtained to Perform Services A-Check Global is consumer reporting agency specializing in screening job applicants for employers. The service we provide to our employer clients requires the collection of information on individuals to create reports utilized by the client for employment selection, retention, and promotion. Here is how our business model works: 1. A-Check clients disclose to applicants that they will be processing a background check, communicating the applicant?s rights within the disclosure and prior to processing a background, and obtain Authorization from the applicant to conduct a background investigation. 2. A-Check clients either directly provide us with the applicant?s personal information or utilize technology designed by A-Check to obtain it directly from the applicant. 3. Personal information is then utilized to prepare a background report for the employer. 4. The personal information collected may include an applicant?s history of employment and other credentials related to the applicant?s prospective employment. 5. In addition to the data that is submitted to us either by the applicant directly or from the client, we may collect data from third parties as needed to process verification of education, residence history, job performance, credit reports, driving records, criminal history records and other lawful checks. 6. 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. 7. We then provide the collected information to the current or prospective employer in the form of a consumer report. All information collected in this process will be used only for the purposes of performing employment screening services which includes verification of the accuracy of the personal information and sometimes a check of the applicant?s references. All information collected in this process will only be provided to our employer client unless we are required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
