Consumer Information

HR Preferred is a consumer reporting agency. It is required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 USC. §1681 et seq. (“FCRA”) to maintain the confidentiality of all consumer information.

HR Preferred obtains information on an individual consumer only upon the request of a user who has a permissible purpose under the FCRA to request information on that consumer in order to provide consumer reports. The FCRA requires a user for employment purposes to certify to us that it has a permissible purpose for the report and has obtained the written consent of the consumer to request information before we can supply the requested information. There is an exception for employer investigations of suspected employee misconduct or for compliance with law or employer policies, e.g., sexual harassment investigations. Our customers agree to keep your information confidential and secure.

HR Preferred does not maintain a database of consumer information.

Personal Information Disclosure, United States, or overseas.

We do not send consumer information outside of the United States, or its territories, for any purpose other than to deliver a report to an end-user. Of course, if the information is sought from outside of the United States, the information is gathered in that country and then transmitted to us here in the United States, where it is treated as any other consumer information.

Any information gathered on any consumer may only be provided to the user authorized by the consumer or permitted by the FCRA or similar state law to receive the information. We cannot and do not share, sell, or distribute consumer information with or to any third party other than the requesting party thereof. Any consumer, upon proper identification, has the right under the FCRA to request us to furnish to the consumer all information we may have on that consumer. The consumer has the right to dispute the accuracy or completeness of any information contained in the consumer’s file.

However, we may be required, upon receipt of a court order to release the information in civil litigation, or as otherwise required by law, to disclose information regarding a consumer to law enforcement agencies.

Other privacy initiatives and procedures include, but are not limited to:

  • Access to confidential consumer information is limited within HR Preferred to those who have a need to know the information: obtaining and       transmitting information on the consumer or those dealing with a consumer request for information or consumer disputes.
  • Employees are prohibited from “browsing” files or databases without a business justification.
  • Destruction of consumer information follows the Federal Trade Commission’s requirements that the information be unreadable upon disposal.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. Thus, you are advised to review this page periodically for any changes. We will notify you of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.
