FACTA Compliance

FACTA requires disposal practices that are reasonable and appropriate to prevent the unauthorized access to – or use of – information in a consumer report. For example, reasonable measures for disposing of consumer report information could include establishing and complying with policies to: burn, pulverize, or shred papers containing consumer report information so that the information cannot be read or reconstructed; destroy or erase electronic files or media containing consumer report information so that the information cannot be read or reconstructed; or conduct due diligence and hire a document destruction contractor to dispose of material specifically identified as consumer report information consistent with the Rule.

Shred Nations and parent company Data Guard USA, LLC assumes no responsibility for conducting due diligence on shredding and destruction partners/companies within our network. It is the responsibility of the consumer/business to ensure compliance with the requirements of FACTA.
