Home Guides Politics & Law

Confidentiality is a key foundation for trust between a client and a private investigator. Without trust, the client will not feel free to talk about details that may be useful for the investigation and the private investigator will not be able to fully meet the client’s expectations. Clients need to trust their private investigator and know that whatever information they share will be treated as sensitive data that cannot be shared or revealed to anyone else. Professional private investigators are fully aware that respecting their client’s right to privacy is a top priority that cannot be compromised, except in the direst of circumstances.
