Laws exist regarding the permitted and restricted uses of this data, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). See the full text for complete details. If your interest or intended use of this information falls under the jurisdiction of the FCRA, you are required to obtain this information elsewhere in the form of a consumer report from a consumer reporting agency, in accordance with all procedural and record keeping requirements as set forth in the FCRA. Among others, such restricted uses may include seeking any information bearing on a consumer's credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living, with its intended use as a factor in establishing the consumer's eligibility or suitability for credit, insurance, employment, or housing (tenant screening).
