Thank you for volunteering to serve at Trinity Church. During the online process you will notice the following disclosure:
DISCLOSURE REGARDING BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION
TRINITY EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH (“the Organization”) may obtain information about you from a consumer reporting agency for consideration of the opportunity to serve as a volunteer with the Organization. Thus, you may be the subject of a “consumer report” which may include information about your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and/or mode of living. These reports may contain information regarding your criminal history, motor vehicle records (“driving records”), or other background checks. Please be advised that the nature and scope of the most common form of consumer report obtained with regard to applicants for volunteering is a criminal record report conducted by Background Investigation Bureau (BIB), LLC, (“BIB”), 9710 Northcross Center Court, Huntersville, NC 28078, (877) 439-3900.
The next section is the Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) . BIB is required by the Federal Credit Reporting Act law to disclose this information to you even though the background check you are consenting to is for criminal and sex offender history. The FCRA contains additional disclosure requirements beyond credit reporting. The term “Consumer Report”, according to the FCRA, includes any credit, employment and searches of criminal and sex offender databases. The requirements of the FCRA are not limited to credit reporting. Volunteer background checks for Trinity Church will not include credit history or employment information.
If you have questions about the background check process please contact Sheri Blakey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
