Any private detective must comply with the law regulating the profession of private detective of 19 July 1991. In addition, investigators must take into account the privacy act, the law concerning electronic communications, the penal code, labor act, the ECHR,… . The privacy of every citizen is protected in a variety of ways. For example, every private detective has to respect the legislation concerning the spying of citizens, the prohibition of collecting certain privacy-sensitive information and restrictions on means and methods, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), … .
A number of means and methods are, in well-defined cases and situations, prohibited by law so that it makes no sense to use them. In their capacity as victims of a crime, clients sometimes ask us if we have access to privacy-sensitive databases and data, such as the National Register, the criminal record information system, Vehicle Registration Service (DIV), documents from telecom providers,… Our investigation team has no access to these types of information sources, for reasons of privacy and GDPR legislation. We use advanced search methods and applications, which are always checked against the legislation in advance.
When a private detective conducts unauthorized investigative acts, the evidence will be rejected. If we are almost certain that the investigation report will be rejected, we will refuse your investigation request, based on deontological ethics. At no time during the course of the investigation, a private detective will break the law or violate ethical standards. However, our reseachers will use every legal means possible to detect fraud.
