Legal and Privacy
ABOUT OUR SERVICE:
The information that 1stpublicrecords.com accesses
is from courthouses and proprietary databases. The databases are
not available to the general public. All our information comes from
sources that charge a fee for obtaining information.
1stPublicRecords.com is NOT a Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA). 1stPublicRecords.com does not provide any background check information that should be used for employment screening or hiring purposes. If you need employment screening services, please contact a CRA.
1stpublicrecords.com guarantees that if another
Internet service finds a criminal record on
a subject you searched for, and which 1stpublicrecords.com did not
produce any result, 1stpublicrecords.com will refund for searches
you conducted. Please read refund policy below for more information.
No refund is acceptable after 7 days. If 1stpublicrecords.com
searches didn't find any information and if you find information
for the same search by using other services, please email or fax
a copy of the search result to 1stpublicrecords.com Customer Service
and your refund will be processed.
TURN AROUND TIME:
1stpublicrecords.com can not guarantee the turn around time on any non-instant search since most county-level criminal searches need to be conducted via a courthouse clerk, which is out of our control. Also, please note our office hours are Monday to Friday (8:00 AM - 5:00 PM), and we are closed during the weekend. If you place an order Friday night, it won't be processed until Monday morning. However all the instant database searches are an exception. You will get the results instantly on our website.
