Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)

The use of the information and reports provided by Backgrounds USA are subject to the restrictions and conditions laid out in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), 15 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq., INCLUDING the amendments to the FCRA set forth in the Consumer Credit Reporting Reform Act of 1996 (Public Law 104-208, the Omnibus Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 1997, Title II, Subtitle D, Chapter 1), Section 311 of the Intelligence Authorization for Fiscal Year 1998 (Public Law 105-107), the Consumer Reporting Employment Clarification Act of 1998 (Public Law 105-347), Section 506 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (Public Law 106-102), and Sections 358(g) and 505(c) of the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001 (USA PATRIOT Act) (Public Law 107-56). The complete text of FRCA can be found on our FRCA page.

Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA)

An amendment to the FCRA (see above), "The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act" (known as FACTA) is designed to "to prevent identity theft, improve resolution of consumer disputes, improve the accuracy of consumer records, make improvements in the use of, and consumer access to, credit information, and for other purposes." Implemented on June 1st, 2005, the " Disposal Rule ," requires that, "any person and/or business who maintains or otherwise possesses consumer information for a business purpose must properly dispose of such information using reasonable measures to protect against unauthorized access to or use of the information in connection with its disposal," thereby reducing the risk of consumer fraud and identity theft. BackgroundsUSA implemented a system 7 years ago whereby all un-needed "waste" documents containing sensitive information are consigned to designated disposal areas, and then shredded to render them unreadable. Documents that we are required by law to store for 2 to 4 years (depending on the type of document and nature of the information recorded) are kept in a secure and locked facility, and then are disposed of by a FACTA compliant disposal company, Bayaud Industries Document Destruction Services. The complete text of FACTA can be found on our FACTA page.
