PRIVACY ACT STATEMENT

Please read our disclosure statement concerning your fingerprinting results
 

The FBI's acquisition, retention, and sharing of information submitted on this form is generally authorized under 28 USC 534 and 28 CFR 16.30-16.34. The purpose for requesting this information from you is to provide the FBI with a minimum of identifying data to permit an accurate and timely search of criminal history identification records. Providing this information (including your Social Security Number) is voluntary; however, failure to provide the information may affect the completion of your request. The information reported on this form may be disclosed pursuant to your consent and may also be disclosed by the FBI without your consent pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 and all applicable routine issues. You may request a copy of your own identification record to review it or obtain a change, correction, or an update to the record.
 

Authority: The FBI’s acquisition, preservation, and exchange of fingerprints and associated information is generally authorized under 28 U.S.C. 534. Depending on the nature of your application, supplemental authorities include Federal statutes, State statutes pursuant to Pub. L. 92-544, Presidential Executive Orders, and federal regulations. Providing your fingerprints and associated information is voluntary; however, failure to do so may affect completion or approval of your application.
 

Principal Purpose: Certain determinations, such as employment, licensing, and security clearances, may be predicated on fingerprint-based background checks. Your fingerprints and associated information/biometrics may be provided to the employing, investigating, or otherwise responsible agency, and/or the FBI for the purpose of comparing your fingerprints to other fingerprints in the FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) system or its successor systems (including civil, criminal, and latent fingerprint repositories) or other available records of the employing, investigating, or otherwise responsible agency. The FBI may retain your fingerprints and associated information/biometrics in NGI after the completion of this application and, while retained, your fingerprints may continue to be compared against other fingerprints submitted to or retained by NGI.
 

Routine Uses: During the processing of this application and for as long thereafter as your fingerprints and associated information/biometrics are retained in NGI, your information may be disclosed pursuant to your consent, and may be disclosed without your consent as permitted by the Privacy Act of 1974 and all applicable Routine Uses as may be published at any time in the Federal Register, including the Routine Uses for the NGI system and the FBI’s Blanket Routine Uses. Routine uses include, but are not limited to, disclosures to: employing, governmental or authorized non-governmental agencies responsible for employment, contracting, licensing, security clearances, and other suitability determinations; local, state, tribal, or federal law enforcement agencies; criminal justice agencies; and agencies responsible for national security or public safety.

  •  If your fingerprints are rejected due to quality, this is a circumstance beyond our control. In the event of a rejection, we will allow one free resubmission of your fingerprints to the FBI. If your second set of fingerprints are rejected, you will need to pay for a third submission.
     
  •  A rejection of your fingerprints is considered an FBI result and does not make you eligible for a refund.
