As a consumer reporting agency governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and other applicable state and federal laws, JDP is committed to protecting your right to privacy.
All information collected by JDP will be collected, stored, and used in compliance with applicable laws, including the FCRA.
Personally Identifiable Information Collected
JDP will only collect “Personally Identifiable Information” about you if you voluntarily choose to provide such information to JDP and/or in connection with a background check authorized by you. “Personally Identifiable Information” that JDP may collect about you through our Website or otherwise may include, but is not limited to: name, address, email address, phone number, date of birth, birthplace, driver’s license number, social security number, employer, employment details, domain name, and information regarding prior criminal proceedings, civil proceedings or credit activities.
With Whom JDP Shares Personally Identifiable Information
JDP will not disclose your “Personally Identifiable Information” to a third party, except in accordance with applicable laws.
Typically, JDP will only disclose “Personally Identifiable Information” regarding the subject of a background check to a third-party in the following situations:
• To an employer or prospective employer which has been authorized in writing by the consumer to receive information about him or her for employment purposes.
• To a landlord or property management company which has been authorized in writing by the consumer to receive information about him or her for tenant screening purposes.
• To an end-user for another purpose authorized in writing by the consumer to receive information about him or her.
• As otherwise required by law.
End-users, such as employers or property management companies, may only obtain information from JDP after they have certified a legal permissible purpose for receiving such information.
Where JDP transfers “Personally Identifiable Information” to a representative or third-party subcontractor assisting with a background check, JDP provides only the information required to assist with the background check. JDP prohibits such third-party representatives and subcontractors from using consumer information for any purpose other than assisting JDP with the background check. JDP also contractually requires such third-party representatives and subcontractors to maintain commercially-reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality of consumer information they receive.
JDP does not resell to third-parties any data provided to us for marketing purposes under any circumstances.
How To Access, Correct, And Change Personally Identifiable Information
JDP strives to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the information collected through the Website and otherwise. You can access and update certain personal information we have about you by calling us toll free at 855-940-3232 or by visiting our website at www.jdp.com..
If you are a JDP client with a registered account, you may review and update your information by logging into your account. If you are an individual on whom one of our clients has requested a background screening investigation, and/or you have submitted “Personally Identifiable Information” to us at the request of such client for purposes of the background screening investigation, you may review your JDP file in accordance with your file disclosure rights under the FCRA, California Civil Code Section 1786.22 or any other applicable law by contacting us toll–free at 855-940-3232, or in another legally authorized way.
To protect consumers’ privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify an individual’s identity before granting access to “Personally Identifiable Information” or allowing corrections to such data.
Personal Information Disclosure: United States Or Overseas
Generally, JDP does not transfer information to third-parties outside of the United States or its territories. Such transfers would only be done if necessary to complete an international background check (e.g., conducting an international criminal check or verifying educational or employment records outside of the U.S.).
JDP processes the information from a Controller on the instructions of the Controller and for the purpose determined by the Controller. The Controller is permitted to delegate to the Processor choice over the manner in which the processing will be performed. JDP does not in any way determine the purpose or reason for processing the personal information and does not otherwise process the data beyond the Controller’s instructions. JDP is not directly subject to the jurisdiction of the GDPR, after reviewing applicable law and consultation with counsel. JDP, as a Data Processor, may be obligated to execute a Data Processing Agreement if the client is subject to the jurisdiction of the GDPR and has engaged JDP to process EU personal data. The DPA may contractually obligate JDP to comply with certain limited provisions of the GDPR pursuant to Article 28.
Security Of Your Information
JDP abides by all applicable state and federal laws pertaining to the security of data supplied to us. JDP uses industry standard physical, technical and administrative security measures and safeguards to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information. For example, JDP has established mechanisms to help maintain a secure network, encrypted back-up data, and established limits on employee access to information.
When data is ready to be destroyed or disposed of, JDP will follow all applicable laws and regulations and take measures to ensure that all such records and data are destroyed and unrecoverable.
Disputes Regarding Information Reported About You
JDP has in place procedures designed to ensure that the information it reports about individuals is accurate and up-to-date. However, if you believe that JDP has inaccurately reported information about you, please notify us immediately to initiate a dispute. We welcome the opportunity to reinvestigate any possible errors or discrepancies.
