Permissible purpose

SentryLink reports may only be used for purposes consistent with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). These include:

  • Employment screening (including household employees)
  • Self checks
  • Tenant screening
  • Volunteer screening
  • Insurance underwriting
  • In connection with a business transaction and with the written permission of the person being investigated

If you do not fit these criteria, we recommend InfoTracer, a non-FCRA provider.

I certify that I have received and understood the Obligations of Users Under the FCRA and will not use these reports in any illegal or discriminatory fashion.

Please note, our criminal background checks are comprehensive searches that may require validation against court records. Most reports are instant, but others are not. You should be prepared for the possibility of waiting a few business days for your results. If this is not acceptable to you, you may wish to look at alternate vendors.
