III. Non personally-identifiable information.

This site also collects non personally-identifiable information. For example, as you browse this Web site we may collect information about your visit, but not about you personally. Via Web server logs, for example, we may monitor statistics such as: the number of people that visit our site, which page(s) are visited on our site, from which domain our visitors come (e.g.,,, etc.), and which browsers people use to visit our site (e.g., Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.). Our Web site uses an outsourcing program to assist us in analyzing this data to better tailor our Web site.


The information collected by this Web site is used only for responding to your inquiries and otherwise corresponding with you, for processing transactions you request, maintaining your account (if you have one), and for the administration, review and/or the improvement the content of our Web sites.

We may contact you in response to your comments or inquiries, as part of the maintenance of your account with us (if you have one), or in order to complete a transaction that you requested. We may also contact you to inform you of other products or services we believe may be of interest to you, but we will offer you an opportunity not to receive such communications. If you decide that you do not want to receive further e-mails regarding your inquiry from IRC, you can reply to the e-mail or use the telephone number(866) 781-8160 with a request that we not continue to e-mail you.

We do not use outside data sources to enrich marketing data obtained online. If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about our site or a particular product or service, we will ask you for your friend’s name and e-mail address. We will automatically send your friend a one-time e-mail message with information about the product or service and/or inviting him or her to visit the site. This message may include your name and/or e-mail address and any optional message that you elect to send along with our e-mail. We do not retain the information that you provide as part of this referral service (although we may retain your friend’s e-mail address if he or she requests to receive additional information or e-mail messages from us).


We may disclose information you provide to us to third parties in order to complete a transaction that you requested. We may also outsource some tasks, including the operation of certain Web site functions, that require access to information you supply online. In such cases, however, we require that the companies acting on our behalf abide by our privacy policy and institute safeguards to protect the confidentiality of your information. Finally, please note that we may disclose personal information when required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to comply with the law or legal process.


As an information company, we know the importance of accurate data. Therefore, we strive to maintain the accuracy of the information collected through this Web site. Furthermore, we believe that the individual is invaluable in ensuring that data is complete and accurate. We will provide you with access to personally-identifiable information you provide through our Web site for as long as we maintain that information in a readily accessible format.

We take steps to protect against the loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration of personally-identifiable information collected through this Web site. We recognize the importance of security for all personally-identifiable information collected by our Web site. We exercise care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Once we receive personally-identifiable information, we take steps to protect its security on our systems. In the event we request or transmit sensitive information, such as credit card information or Social Security Numbers, we use industry standard, secure socket layer (“SSL”) encryption. We limit access to personally-identifiable information to those employees who need access in order to carry out their job responsibilities.

We do not transfer any consumer personal information to third-parties outside of the United States or its territories.



Under California law (Civil Code § 1786.10-1786.40), an “investigative consumer report” is a consumer report containing information on a consumer’s character, general reputation, personal characteristics or mode of living.   Under California law, IRC compiles “investigative consumer reports” about individuals and provides them to businesses for background screening related to tenancy and employment purposes, including whether to rent or lease residential property or whether to hire, promote or retain an individual.


In connection with our preparation and processing of “investigative consumer reports” under California law, we are required to advise you whether personal information about you is transferred to authorized service providers and affiliates outside the United States and its territories. IRC does not transfer personal information about you outside the United States and its territories.


IRC’s policies and procedures for preparing and processing investigative consumer reports are designed to comply with the requirements of the California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (Cal. Civ. Code § 1786.10 et. seq.) and the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 U.S.C. § 1681 et. seq.).   IRC, for example, maintains policies and procedures designed to limit the purposes for, and circumstances under which, we furnish investigative consumer reports. IRC maintains reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy of the information concerning the individual about whom the report relates. IRC provides individuals with the ability to request, upon proper identification, access to information we hold about them in our investigative consumer reporting files. IRC conducts reinvestigations of the accuracy and completeness of information at the individual’s request. IRC also has implemented administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the information that IRC maintains in our investigative consumer reporting files.


In compliance with CA Civ 1798.100 as amended and by CA AB 375, (which takes effect on January 1, 2020), and in cooperation with the spirit of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as enacted by the European Union, upon request, IRC will remove consumer PII data that would be stored on IRC’s systems, with the exception of archival reports pulled prior to the request for removal. Said archival reports must remain on our system for a period of not less than 6 years and one additional year for discovery to effectively comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
