Personal Information Disclosure: United States or Overseas
TR Information Services opposes the “offshoring” of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of consumers – such as names, dates of birth, and Social Security numbers (SSNs) – sent overseas outside of the United States and its territories and beyond the protection of U.S. Privacy laws. TR Information Services mission is to protect the PII of consumers, which is best done by keeping all such information in the United States. TR Information Services belongs to ConcernedCRA’s (http://www.concernedcras.com/) a group of Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) dedicated to protecting consumer privacy by not offshoring PII. TR Information Serviceshas adopted the policy of ConcenredCRA’s and operates in as follows:
- Domestic Background Screening: Where a CRA (background screening firm) is providing background screening services for consumers in the United States based upon information available in the U.S., a firm displaying the ConcenredCRA seal certifies that it does not send data outside the U. S. or its territories for processing or preparation of a background check 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 offshore by necessity since the information being sought is offshore. However, firms displaying the ConcenredCRA seal have taken 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 the ConcenredCRA standard.
