With the security issues that have surfaced over the past few years, the driving records reports industry has had the added responsibility of policing the intended use for each order placed. The Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994 (DPPA), which was upheld on both the State and Federal levels, has put restrictions on both the personal information we can provide, and the types of clientele to which SambaSafety may provide it. In compliance with the DPPA, SambaSafety maintains a Compliance Department to oversee the full compliance of its clients and the protection of the consumer.

SambaSafety requires each client to have a signed Subscription Agreement, along with signed Affidavits of Intended Use by the states that require them. It is our wish and desire to make this process as brief and easy as possible. If you are a current client of SambaSafety and you wish to have a current copy of your agreement, please contact your sales representative. If you are not a current customer, but are interested in SambaSafety products and services, please email our sales department at sales@sambasafety.com, call 866-837-3295. If you have any questions or concerns about the Compliance procedures, or about the forms in general, please email the Compliance Department at support@sambasafety.com.

SambaSafety Compliance Commitment

SambaSafety requires, and the law demands, that all companies seeking motor vehicle records on an individual for employment purposes receive a prior consent from that individual prior to providing the record. As a Consumer Reporting Agency, we fully comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act (DPPA), and state equivalent laws. Moreover, we pass regular state audits for our compliance processes, and we proactively audit our own customers to ensure compliance with consent records and other compliance expectations. Employers and insurance providers must follow adverse action requirements under the FCRA, which require that they notify an individual writing if an adverse decision regarding employment or insurance coverage is made based on a motor vehicle record.
