The Way Company Uses Information
If you submit personally identifiable information to us through the Company Site(s), we may need to use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you or your "Sponsor" (defined below) the features and functionality of the Company Site(s) and/or otherwise provide Company products and services or perform our obligations to Sponsors and other third parties. Your access of the Company Site(s) may be for the purpose of providing your information to a governmental agency or self-regulatory organization from whom you are seeking a status, license or certification, or an employer as a condition of employment, status or certification (any such agency, self-regulatory organization or actual or potential employer is referred to as you "Sponsor"). This may include, without limitation, in connection with enrolling and/or providing fingerprint and biographical information for TSA security checks or other third party security programs, employment investigations, criminal history records checks, review of available law enforcement databases and records and other governmental and international agencies. Your use of the Company Site(s) and the personally identifiable information you give to us may be shared with your Sponsor and such other third parties for the above-described purposes. You should contact the relevant agency, self-regulatory organization or employer to learn how they will use and protect your personally identifiable information we forward to them.
Your account information (for example, full name, email address, birth date and credit card number) is collected for basic Company service. Company will use this information to fulfill its services to you and the Sponsor as follows:
- Your full name will be used to personalize communications to you and identify you in our system or for communications to the Sponsor.
- Your email address will be used for identity verification, system messages, personal Company messages (unsubscribe is available in "User Preferences") and other Company communications.
- Your credit card information, including your billing address, will be used when you pay for any of the Company services.
We do not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send commercial or marketing messages to you without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out, such as providing information regarding Company products or services other than the services you then currently receive, which may include products or services provided by affiliates of Company other than those that are then currently providing products and/or services to you. We may use your email address without further consent for non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major Company Site changes, providing the results of services you sought to you or the relevant Sponsor, or for customer service purposes). The Company affiliates that provide the Company Services to you may share your email address and other personally identifiable information with other Company affiliates that are not then currently providing services to you in order for such other Company affiliates to provide their services and to market and sell their services to you.
We will send you service-related announcements on occasions when Company determines that it is necessary to do so. For instance, if our service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, we might send you an email. Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account but without any right of refund for services you have paid for, even if your deactivation prohibits us from completing those services.
We use both your personally identifiable information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the Company Site(s) and to create new features, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing User preferences and trends.

Your use of the Company Site(s) and the personally identifiable information you give to us may be shared with your Sponsor and such other third parties in connection with providing our products and services and performing our obligations to you and your Sponsor and such other third parties, or as we believe in the good-faith that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright Law) or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or comply with any other legal requirement.
