Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City (“The Company”) may obtain information about you for volunteer screening purposes from a third party consumer reporting agency. Thus, you may be the subject of a “consumer report" and/or an “investigative consumer report" which may include information about your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and/or mode of living, and which can involve personal interviews with sources such as your neighbors, friends, or associates. These reports may contain information regarding your credit history, criminal history, social security number validation, motor vehicle records (driving records), verification of your education or employment history, DOT regulated drug and alcohol testing records or other background checks. Credit history will only be requested where such information is substantially related to the duties and responsibilities of the volunteer position for which you are applying. You have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable time, to request whether a consumer report has been requested and compiled about you, and disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report and to request a copy of your report. Please be advised that the nature and scope of the most common form of investigative consumer report is an investigation into your education and/or employment history conducted by Validity Screening Solutions, PO Box 860443, Shawnee, KS 66285-0443, 866.915.0792, www.validityscreening.com, or another outside organization. The scope of this notice and authorization is all encompassing, however, allowing the Company to obtain from any outside organization all manner of consumer reports and investigative consumer reports now and throughout the course of your relationship as a volunteer with the Company to the extent permitted by law. As a result, you should carefully consider whether to exercise your right to request disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report.
