We do our very best to reply in a timely fashion, but please be patient, as complex or unusual requests always take longer.

Information Collection and Use
Backgrounds USA obtains its information from the relevant state and county repositories, courts and record offices where records are stored. We do not sell any non-public information. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Backgrounds USA collects information from our users at several different points on our website and uses the information for internal marketing and administration purposes only. All users must have an appropriate use for the information and agree to abide by all local and federal laws regarding the purchase and dissemination of said information.

Our web page does not automatically collect specific information (i.e. e-mail addresses) about visitors. Aggregate and summary statistics are ONLY collected as a measure of our web site’s effectiveness.

In order to use this website, a user must first complete the online registration form. During registration a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.

We request information from the user on our order form. Here a user must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

This web site may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Backgrounds USA is not responsible for the privacy policies of such other sites.

We communicate with the user to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their account via email or phone.

Correction/Updating Personal Information
If a users personal information changes (such as your address or telephone number), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that users personal data provided to us. This can be done by emailing our Customer Service department.

Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy policies, we will post those changes on this Privacy Policy web page, so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.
