1. Services Period. Unless otherwise terminated earlier in accordance with the terms of the Agreement, the Services will end upon the completion of the Services by Company, and payment by Client.
2. Services. The Services outlined in this SOW reflect the initial understanding of Client’s desired Deliverable and Company reserves the right to alter the manner in which Services are provided if Company determines different Services are necessary to complete the Deliverable. Client acknowledges that the Services provided by Company shall be limited to those included in the specific pre-employment background report selected by the Client on the web portal (i.e., Quickcheck, ExecuCheck,1 or ExecuCheck Plus).
Unless Client specifically identifies a Data Source that it wants Company to include in Services, Client shall defer to Company as to which Data Sources Company selects to conduct Services under this SOW and waives any claim that the Deliverable is incomplete, inaccurate, or deficient because specific Data Source(s) were not used by Company. Company reserves the right to decline to use a database requested by Client; however, under no circumstances will Company access any credit reports or credit information on any subjects.
Moreover, Client defers to Company as to which information to include in the Deliverable(s) and acknowledges that Company is not obligated to include all existing derogatory or favorable information about Subject(s) in Deliverables. Client also acknowledges that Client and Company are bound by the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act and similar state laws and regulations designed to protect consumers. Client understands that these laws and regulations limit the scope of Deliverables used for employment purposes, including without limitation the exclusion of specific findings based on substance or circumstance, or if such findings antedate the Deliverable by a prescribed date (often (7) seven years).
Client also agrees that if Company identifies any negative material information about a subject, Company will advise Client and upon receiving Client’s consent, Company will cease additional research and provide a Deliverable to Client for that Subject that is limited to such negative information.

A written report containing relevant information on the subject(s) identified by Client on the pre-employment background check questionnaire (“Due Diligence Questionnaire”) pursuant to the Services set forth in Section 2 of this SOW.

Client Certification: Client will comply with the applicable requirements of all federal and state laws and regulations, including without limitation the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act and similar state laws and regulations designed to protect consumers. Accordingly, Client certifies: (1) prior to the receipt of any Deliverable(s) Client has made a clear and conspicuous disclosure in writing to the Subject, in a document consisting of only the disclosure, that a consumer report may be obtained for employment purposes; (2) Client has received Subject(s)’s written authorization to obtain the Deliverable(s) in advance of requesting Services; (3) Client will provide to the Subject, prior to taking of any adverse action based in whole or in part on the Deliverable(s), a copy of the Deliverable(s) and a description of the Subject’s rights as proscribed under Section 609(c)(3) of the Fair Credit Reporting act; (4) Client will not use any information contained in the Deliverable(s) in violation of any applicable federal or state equal opportunity law or regulation; (5) Client will only use the Deliverables only for employment purposes; and (6) Deliverable(s) will be stored in a secure manner and disposed of in a timely and proper manner, as required by applicable laws or regulations.

Change Order: If Client desires to initiate changes to the SOW, it shall submit to Company a written request to do so. The request will set forth the nature of Company’s proposed changes to the SOW. Client shall complete and return to Company a written document (“Change Order”) setting forth (i) a written description of the changes to the SOW, (ii) any changes to the schedule, (iii) any changes or additions to the Deliverables and (iv) any changes or additions to the fees. A Change Order will be binding only if signed by both parties. Any and all Change Orders will be governed by the terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement, and are hereby incorporated by this reference once executed. Any additional Deliverables described in the Change Order will be subject to the payment provisions as described in Section 7 of the Agreement.
