As a consumer reporting agency governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) and other applicable state and federal laws, MinistrySafe is committed to protecting your right to privacy.
All information collected by MinistrySafe will be collected, stored, and used in compliance with applicable laws, including the FCRA.
Personally Identifiable Information Collected
MinistrySafe will only collect “Personally Identifiable Information” about you if you voluntarily choose to provide such information to MinistrySafe and/or in connection with a background check authorized by you. “Personally Identifiable Information” that MinistrySafe 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, and information regarding prior criminal proceedings, civil proceedings or credit-related activities.
With Whom MinistrySafe Shares Personally Identifiable Information
MinistrySafe will not disclose your “Personally Identifiable Information” to a third party, except in accordance with applicable laws.
Typically, MinistrySafe 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 volunteer organization which has been authorized in writing by the consumer to receive information about him or her for purposes of determining whether he/she will be eligible for certain volunteer opportunities.
- As otherwise required by law.
End-users (e.g., employers and prospective employers) may only obtain information from MinistrySafe after they have certified a legal permissible purpose for receiving such information.
When MinistrySafe transfers “Personally Identifiable Information” to a representative or third-party subcontractor assisting with a background check, MinistrySafe provides only the information required to assist with the background check. MinistrySafe prohibits such third-party representatives and subcontractors from using consumer information for any purpose other than assisting MinistrySafe with the background check. MinistrySafe also contractually requires such third-party representatives and subcontractors to maintain commercially-reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality of consumer information they receive.
MinistrySafe does not resell any data provided to us for marketing purposes under any circumstances.

Personal Information Disclosure: United States Or Overseas
