We pull Accurint reports from LexisNexis for potential employee and periodically during employment for certain job positions. Accurint services are not provided by "consumer reporting agencies," as that term is defined by FCRA and does not constitute "consumer reports," as that term in defined in FCRA. Accurint discloses to its users that the Accurint service may not be used in whole or in part as a factor in determining eligibility for credit, insurance, employment or another purpose in connection with which a consumer report may be used under the FCRA.
The Accurint product aggregates and reports data, as provided by public records and commercially available data sources, and is not the source of the data.
Question...do we have to obtain permission from potential employees and current employees to pull this type of report?
Thanks in advance!
