"What kind of information is collected through the Web site?
CARCO assures you that the Web site does not use any "cookies." Cookies are sent to a visitor by a browser, stored on a system, and used to provide tailored information from a Web site.

The information we collect may be used for internal review, security or system administration purposes.
Information that may be automatically logged may include:
The only personally identifiable information (e.g., name, address, E-mail address) we may collect is any volunteered by you. If you decide to send us personally identifiable information via E-mail, such as an electronic mail message containing a request for marketing materials, the information that is collected is only used for the purposes of responding to your request and/or internal review. The Web site is also used as a recruiting tool, whereby you may send a resume or other type of job application to an individual at CARCO.

What do we do with the information we collect?
CARCO may retain non-personally identifiable information indefinitely and destroy such information at its discretion. CARCO does not actively solicit personally identifiable information; rather, E-mail options allow Web site visitors to send comments, resumes, and other communications to us. Your message will be forwarded to the appropriate person within CARCO for consideration or response, at his/her discretion. CARCO keeps all personally identifiable information you voluntarily provide confidential. E-mail or resumes are disposed of at the recipient's discretion. CARCO does not sell or otherwise share this information with outside parties for any purpose.

This notice is provided for California residents. CARCO is an investigative consumer reporting agency that prepares and processes “investigative consumer reports” about California residents (i.e. consumer reports containing information about an individual’s character, general reputation, personal characteristics or mode of living) to employers for their use for employment purposes, including whether to hire, promote or retain an individual.
Personal Information Disclosure: United States or Overseas: In connection with our preparation and processing of investigative consumer reports, CARCO may transfer personal information about you to our customers, data sources, employees, contractors, or affiliates outside the United States and its territories.
Privacy Practices: CARCO’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.). CARCO, for example, maintains policies and procedures designed to limit the purposes for, and circumstances under which, we furnish investigative consumer reports. CARCO maintains reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy of the information concerning the individual about whom the report relates. CARCO provides individuals with the ability to request, upon proper identification, access to information we hold about them in our investigative consumer reporting files. CARCO conducts reinvestigations of the accuracy and completeness of information at the individual’s request. CARCO also has implemented administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the information that CARCO maintains in our investigative consumer reporting files.
