The information contained in a CrimShield investigative consumer report may not include a complete history of all criminal activity relating to this applicant. CrimShield only reports information regarding criminal acts pursuant to Federal and State law, and pursuant to Certification Criteria guidelines for that particular investigation pursuant to the applicable criteria. Likewise, arrests, indictments, dismissals, deferments, expungements, sealed records or some other disposition data that does not result in a criminal conviction may not be reported pursuant to some applicable State laws. All records reported have been verified with the appropriate courts. CrimShield performs a specific profile verification together with a criminal background investigation of available court criminal records on the applicant that CrimShield has found in the course of its investigation. However, please be aware and understand that CrimShield, Inc. does not guarantee that the person validated has absolutely NO criminal history. The report does not guarantee the accuracy or truthfulness of the information as to the subject of the investigation, but only that it is accurately copied from public records, and information obtained that may be a result of identity theft, including evidence of criminal activity, may be inaccurately associated with the consumer applicant who is subject of the report by the court. Court inputting and other errors are possible and CrimShield investigators can only obtain records the courts make available with the understanding and reliance that they accurately exist in the court files. CrimShield licensed investigators search numerous court criminal record data bases and files regarding each investigation to ascertain whether or not the applicant has been convicted of, plead no contest to, or plead guilty to any criminal activity that results in the applicant being denied a CrimShield Certification. Therefore, CrimShield suggests you use common sense in your approach to the use of criminal records for your intended purposes.
