BackgroundCheck.us.org is publishing a guide to the rights and responsibilities of using public records, the company said yesterday.
“People have the absolute right to the information in the public records they purchase from us,” a BackgroundCheck.us.org spokesman said. “However, the government has put limits on how the information can be used. If you don't know the rules, you could end up doing something with the information that could land you in jail. We want to avoid that happening to any of our customers.”
BackgroundCheck.us.org is going to post the guide to using public information legally on the members section of their website, through their social media channels, and eventually on their blog, he said.
“We want to make sure that people are very careful with the ways they use the information they receive from us,” he said. “Doing a background check is a great way to protect yourself and your family. But you don't want to put yourself in legally jeopardy after you purchase the information.”
The guide has an extensive section on what a user's rights and responsibilities are if they find out a neighbor is a registered sex offender, he said.
“When someone finds out that they know a sex offender is when they are most likely to do something that will get them into legal trouble,” the BackgroundCheck.us.org spokesman said. “There are very stringent legal guidelines about what you can do with that information, but people often act out of fear rather than reason. Then the sex offender remains free, and the other person heads off to jail.”
