Personal Information

When you visit our website, we may collect usage information such as the URL you came from, your IP address and domain name, your browser type, the country, state, and telephone area code where your server is located, the pages of our site that were viewed during a visit, and any search terms that you entered on our site. This information is used for internal purposes only.

A “cookie” is a piece of information stored on your computer. Although cookies are used for a variety of purposes, our site only uses temporary “session” cookies that do not contain any personal information about you, and they are automatically removed from your computer once you log out of our software, close your browser, or perform no activity within the software for a period of 5 minutes.


As a Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA), we are actively engaged in ensuring our systems and data are secure. Once we receive personally identifiable information, we take steps to protect its security on our systems. In the event we request or transmit sensitive information, such as credit card information or Social Security numbers, we use industry standard secure socket layer (“SSL”) encryption. An ICSA-certified, stateful packet inspection firewall, data storage on externally inaccessible servers, and other technology industry best practices further protect our systems and their data.

Our emphasis on privacy and security is reflected in the way we operate. We strictly limit access to personally identifiable information to those employees who need access in order to carry out their job responsibilities. We train our employees in the application of a need-to-know standard. All employees and contractors must pass a thorough background check, and security training is a key element of new employee orientation. All waste paper documents are shredded onsite.
