The most "frequent" questions can be answered here.
Is this an "officials only" access type of thing?
No, thanks for wondering that.
Our intended audience is those who utilize information and intelligence for some of the most "professional" professions. This is where we allow the "consumer" in.
If you're working on your "own business", whatever it may be, where you see what we do and think "Hmm, this could be helpful", you don't reach out to us first, but second.
As a consumer, you'll need to select and meet with your own legal counsel to assess the legitimacy (sanity) of your requests, and their scope. This might cost you money. No, we're not footing the bill. #AttorneyClientPriv
Your legal counsel is to do the following:
"Evaluate and verdict the requirement of the client's request based on any consciously measurable aspect of safety, security, and/or privacy, promoting or detracting from the request itself, with all due respect to ethics, morals, and regionally applicable law in-between client and target, accounting for the client's end goal."
If your legal counsel finds your request advisable, they get you in touch with us, and we go from there, with your legal counsel specifying appropriate and inappropriate scopes.
I'm a lawyer or investigator; what about me?
Ah, hello friend! Please make sure you've read all of these FAQ's and understand what you're getting into. Then, complete the request form at the bottom of these. You'll need to use a business email.
What is a "scope"
In an investigation, you may consider "scope" the "investigator's permitted eyesight". While we can return hundreds of different public and private data types, it is up to your legal counsel or organization to determine what the appropriate scope of request is.
An investigation into a stolen dog, for example. While it's petty-sounding, many dogs can be of high value. You would want to recover something of high value. Appropriate scopes to do that would be vehicle registration information, geolocation, home address, homeowner information, advice on weapons owned, etc. Inappropriate scopes would be work addresses, PII, and things of that sort.
This is the oversight required of your legal counsel in validating your request. We are not interested in being arbitor-in-chiefs.
I'm a LEO; do you require a warrant for requests?
Don't take this personally, it's a judgemental world out there nowadays.
While we are happy to work cooperatively with the agencies defending the people of the world, we are not your easy way around a warrant or court order, nor the people who can help you get a "magic" warrant or court order. If you know you'd need a warrant/court order for something, don't ask us for what you want without it. If the warrant/order is bogus just for the sake of getting it, we will tell you no - if this makes you sweat, it's bogus. If the warrant/order is legitimate, we will assist specifically to the scope provided in our Engagement Agreement in response to you. We will canary if you attempt to utilize us for unethical or court-restricted purposes. In a pre-investigative stage where a warrant is not yet a possibility, we require that you submit a Task Elevation Request, to be approved or denied based off of your investigative stage and present findings. You have every opportunity to "explain it pretty" so, no will still mean no if you're told no.
What's the legality of this?
The legality of this extends to precisely what you do with it and any consequences you create for yourself - nothing more or less.
In the prior example, the stolen dog.
Using the address and context of no-weapons-owned to sneak onto private property to retrieve said stolen dog, damaging nothing in the process, taking nothing but the dog, and causing no disturbance or commotion? Not advisable but also not remotely stoppable.
Using the homeowner information and address to perform daytime recon where you locate the stolen dog, then alert local law enforcement to assist recovery? This, this works best.
Using the address to go burn their house down because you're upset they stole your dog: This is arson and you're a bad person. This is exactly why a lawyer is needed to use us.
Regardless whether your counsel deems your issue a civil or criminal matter; it's on them the appropriate route to handle your request. No matter what, who, when, where, why, or how; at the end of the day you are responsible for what you do with anything you're provided.
What is the limit to what you can do?
The limit is the limit of possibility in application. Summarized, if there's point to it.
What does this cost?
Depending on the nature and requirement of requests, requests may be...
- Approved With Cost
- Approved With Reduced Cost
- Approved Without Cost
- Denied Without Cost
Billable working rates range between $18/hr - $300/hr depending on the complexity of the case and request.
