Data Facts, Inc. (“Data Facts”) is a consumer reporting agency that prepares consumer reports for authorized users under the provisions of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and other applicable state and federal laws. Protecting your privacy is important to Data Facts. The following policy details the safekeeping and confidentiality measures Data Facts takes to protect client and consumer nonpublic personal or financial information.
Information Covered by This Policy
In compliance with the FCRA, a consumer may request access to all data collected and maintained about the consumer in the Consumer Report. This allows the consumer the reasonable opportunity to ascertain what personal information Data Facts possesses about a consumer, and to correct, amend or delete information that is inaccurate or incomplete. Disclosure is provided under the terms of the FCRA. Under certain circumstances, a consumer is entitled to a free copy of their report. Under all circumstances, a consumer is entitled to a copy of their report under the terms of the FCRA. For those consumers who are not citizens of the United States, we reserve the right to charge an administrative fee not to exceed $15 to cover the cost of reviewing our records to determine if a consumer is in our file, and the administrative cost of obtaining and forwarding any information. Data Facts reserves the right to engage in reasonable efforts to confirm the identity of the individual requesting the report, so that we only provide the report to the consumer that is the subject of the report. Although we make every effort to ensure that the data we collect and report about you is as accurate as possible, Data Facts cannot guarantee that third parties are committed to making the same efforts, and therefore we are not responsible for the accuracy of the data they provide.
Data Facts is committed to protecting the personal information that we receive about consumers. We utilize a combination of online and offline security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help safeguard consumer information against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction.
We use Transport Layer Security 1.2 or 1.3 (TLS) data encryption when data is transmitted over the Internet to our website. We have installed layered firewalls and other security technologies to help prevent unauthorized access to our systems. Strong password protection protocols are used on our computers, and employees are kept up to date on our security and privacy policies. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers used to store personally identifiable information are maintained in a secure environment, with appropriate security measures.
