Disclosure Regarding Background Investigation

Idlewild Presbyterian Church (“the Company”) may obtain information about you from a third party consumer reporting agency for volunteer and/or employment purposes. 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, social security verification, motor vehicle records (“driving records”), verification of your education or employment history, or other background checks.  

You have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable time, to request whether a consumer report has been run about you and to request a copy of your report.  These searches will be conducted by Protect My Ministry, P.O. Box 12057, Dallas, TX, 75312, 800-319-5581, www.protectmyministry.com.  The scope of this disclosure is all-encompassing, however, allowing the Company to obtain from any outside organization all manner of consumer reports throughout the course of your employment or volunteering to the extent permitted by law.
