Thank you for visiting WarrantCheck™, located at https://www.warrantcheck.me, a service that aggregates law enforcement data to determine whether you or the person of your search has an outstanding warrant for arrest. This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which WarrantCheck collects, uses, and discloses information about you and/or the subject of your search when you access our Website. In compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) and applicable federal privacy laws, this Privacy Policy addresses the list of categories of personally identifiable information collected by WarrantCheck; how that information may be shared with third parties; a description of the process in which you, as the consumer of our service, can review and request changes to your personally identifiable information; and a description of the process by which you will be notified of material changes to our privacy policy, among other privacy-related issues. By accessing, viewing, downloading, or otherwise using the Website, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your information pursuant to this Privacy Policy, as of its effective date, and/or as amended or modified by the WarrantCheck operator.

Information Collected by WarrantCheck™

WarrantCheck utilizes personnel and databases of publicly-available law enforcement sources of information to service inquiries on whether you and/or an individual of your search have an outstanding or pending warrant for arrest.

Use of Cookies

Certain information is automatically collected and stored in log files. As is the practice with most commercial websites, this information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, Internet Service Provider (ISP) information, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. WarrantCheck may combine this automatically-collected log information with other information collected to improve your service experience and increase efficiency.

When you visit WarrantCheck, we or our third-party service providers may use a "Cookie" – a small, text-only file which is saved to your hard drive – to automatically collect and store non-personally-identifiable information about your usage of the Website, such as your IP address, your browser type, the links and items you click on, and/or ad impressions on your web browser. If you do not want the WarrantCheck Website to collect this information through Cookies, you may set your web browser to reject Cookies from WarrantCheck, or to inform you when a Cookie has been sent to your computer and provide you with the means to reject that Cookie. Each web browser performs differently, and it is suggested that you check your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to change your Cookie preferences.

 

DO NOT TRACK

WarrantCheck and/or its third party service providers track persons using the WarrantCheck website over time to provide targeted advertising and therefore WarrantCheck does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. WarrantCheck and/or its third party service providers keep track of your browsing activities when providing you content, which enables WarrantCheck to tailor what WarrantCheck presents to you.

 

Sharing of Information Collected by WarrantCheck™

WarrantCheck reserves the right to share the information we collect from you with third parties for the following purposes:

  • To facilitate payment: credit card processing companies to process your payment for WarrantCheck services and to verify that your credit card account is valid and active; e-mail service providers to send out e-mails on our behalf of WarrantCheck; data partners to process data on our behalf; and marketing partners for other targeted services;
  • To facilitate marketing. Our third-party affiliates may send you selected marketing and other advertising material.
  • • To respond to a subpoena, court order, or other legal process served on WarrantCheck, or other effect requiring compliance with the law. Your information will be shared with third parties if the WarrantCheck operator believes that disclosure is necessary to protect the rights of WarrantCheck, its parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, joint ventures, or third-party service providers, and each of their respective members, officers, directors, employees, agents, shareholders, co-branders, content licensors, suppliers, contractors, attorneys, and other partners, such as to enforce or apply this Privacy Policy, the Terms and Conditions, and other applicable WarrantCheck agreements and policies; and
  • For any other purpose that is reasonable.

 

Changes to the WarrantCheck™ Privacy Policy

WarrantCheck may, in its discretion, change, amend and/or modify this Privacy Policy, in whole or in part. Privacy Policy changes become effective immediately, upon conspicuously posting the effective date on the WarrantCheck Website. If WarrantCheck introduces and/or makes material changes to its Privacy Policy, these changes will be posted on our Website. Continued use of WarrantCheck services after the changes, amendments, or modifications to the Privacy Policy manifest assent or agreement to the revised Privacy Policy.

 

User Opt-out

Users of WarrantCheck services may receive marketing e-mails sent from WarrantCheck or one of our third-party advertisers. You may contact WarrantCheck to advise that you do not wish to have WarrantCheck disclose your information to third parties for the purposes of sending advertising or other marketing material.
