SCOPE conducts Security consultancy, Factual and Surveillance investigations as instructed by our Clients. We are committed to protecting the privacy of all personal information that we collect.
‘Personal information’ means any information about an individual whose identity is apparent or can be reasonably ascertained from that information.
We are bound by the Privacy Act.
Before commencing an interview or statement, our investigator will introduce him/herself; explain clearly whom they represent and the reason for their inquiry. In accordance with the Privacy Act our Investigators will seek the interviewee’s consent to collect, use and disclose their personal information. We use security procedures to protect the information we hold. Access to and use of personal information within SCOPE is appropriately limited to prevent misuse or unlawful disclosure of the information. Where the personal information we collect is no longer required, we securely dispose of the information.
All Information that we collect is treated as strictly confidential and is only disclosed to our instructing Client, or as otherwise required by law. It is not disclosed to any unauthorized party, or used for any purpose other than the purpose for which it was collected.
