Who Is ClearStar® And Why Do They Have Information About Me?

ClearStar is a global leader in the background and drug screening solutions, providing critical data on applicants to help businesses make informed hiring and leasing decisions. We maintain the information, including criminal and civil public court records, about individuals and landlord-tenant matters. Our team obtains public records from courts and law enforcement agencies in many jurisdictions. We are also a reseller of information maintained by the three national credit reporting agencies (CRA’s): Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion.

What Is A Consumer Report?

A consumer report can contain information sourced from public record sources, creditors, and other data providers. It may show if a person has been sued, filed for bankruptcy, or has a criminal or civil court record. ClearStar does not keep “consumer files” on individuals, but we may have consumer reports or have data on individuals, including criminal and civil court record histories. As a reseller of credit reports, we only resell credit bureau reports to our customers, as permitted under the FCRA, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and other applicable laws.
