It all adds up to peace of mind

A positive asset for any independent school, ParentCheck+ gives you the ability to screen your customer list securely and discreetly. By simultaneously scanning hundreds of worldwide databases maintained by governments and other organisations, you can quickly check for any red flags or warning signs.

A reality check

ParentCheck+ enables powerful batch screening of your customer list to guard against the following potential problems.

  1. Adverse media
    Checking over 35,000 news sources in more than 50 languages, a scan will be conducted using an extensive database of persons who have links to illicit activities.
  2. Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs)
    ParentCheck+ references a list of more than 1.4 million PEPs, as well as their family members & associates, to identify high-profile individuals.
  3. Sanctions
    The most important international sanction lists – including European Union, United Nations, FBI and so on – will be searched to ensure that the school is not forbidden from doing business with the parents.
  4. Money laundering links
    Individuals with money laundering links should be of serious concern to independent schools and ParentCheck+ will reveal such offenders and protect the school from prosecution.

As part of the service, you will receive a report highlighting possible matches between your customers and any adverse information. Based on our findings, you will be able to decide how best to fulfil your statutory reporting obligations as per the National Crime Agency (NCA) requirements.

ParentCheck+ can save your school from experiencing potentially damaging PR, protect your brand and ensure your reputation can Grow Stronger.

How does ParentCheck+ work?

It couldn’t be easier to use. Once signed up to the service, you can submit a list of your current or prospective customers. We will process the lists and highlight any subjects with possible matches to adverse information.

As with our other services, we do the work for you, so there’s no need to create an account or self-serve, nor will you need to disclose full information. First and last name are the minimum requirements but, if they are available, date of birth and nationality will greatly reduce ‘false positives’.

Importantly, ParentCheck+ uses a low match threshold by design, meaning that records that even tenuously relate to a subject referred to us will be included in the screening results.

Compliance

The introduction of the UK General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has increasingly placed data protection under the spotlight. When using ParentCheck+, schools can rest assured they are dealing with a company that is correctly registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as data controllers.

No ‘footprint’ is left on any subject’s credit file as ParentCheck+ is not a credit-checking service. Nor is permission required from your customers as you have a lawful basis for processing the data in such a manner under reasons c) and f) of article 6 of the GDPR.

Measures are also in place with our data sources to ensure they too are compliant with the requirements of the GDPR.
