Adhering to Privacy Laws and Ethical Standards

Adhering to Privacy Laws and Ethical Standards

Melbourne Private Investigations takes privacy and ethical conduct very seriously. Australian privacy laws set clear boundaries on the type of information that can be collected and how it can be used during a background check. We understand these limitations and are fully committed to operating within those legal and ethical frameworks.

Our Background Check Services

To fully grasp the power of our background checks, it’s important to understand the insights each type of search can deliver:

Residential Addresses

Past and present address verification provides insights into stability, potential relocation patterns, and can help confirm other information.

Rental Information

Uncovers previous or current information about where they are living. This can provide insights into the stability of residency. 

Property Ownership

Affiliations with Proprietary Limited (Pty Ltd) companies under ASIC. This includes any positions held as Director or Secretary.

Bankruptcy Checks

Exposes any instances of financial distress, essential for assessing potential risk.

Personal Property Securities Search

Uncovers debts secured against an individual’s assets, further clarifying potential concerns by others over their financial situation.

Social Media Search:  

Analyses online profiles to gain insights into a person’s interests, networks, and potential red flags. This may also expose addresses of interest.

Court History:

Reviews involvement in legal proceedings to understand if there are past offenses relevant to your assessment. We note that this is limited to what we can find out. 

The Legal Boundaries of Background Checks in Australia

In the realm of investigations, privacy laws in Australia impose certain limitations on accessing information. It is important to understand that there are specific types of information that cannot be obtained. These include:

  • Government databases such as Medicare, Centrelink, and Motor Vehicle Registries.
  • Registration checks on number plates, which are solely accessible to the police.
  • Criminal background searches, which necessitate a signed consent form from the person of interest.
  • Details on court appearances.
  • Bank account details, including balances and transactional information, which remain confidential.
  • Personal and private company tax returns held by the Australian Taxation Office.
  • Immigration status, history, or records.
  • Flight or hotel records.
  • Names of Trusts which are usually used to own property or shares.
  • Investments owned in relation to shares on the stock market locally or internationally.

Gavin Willis is Extremely diligent and it was a straight forward process. He Helped me find an individual that the Police left me in the lurch citing it's nothing more then a civil matter. First attempt at locating the individual was unsuccessful but Gavin went the extra mile at no additional cost to help me find the individuals address. Highly recommend, will definitely use these guys again in future. Thanks again.

I found Gavin and his team very professional and took the time to really understand what I needed help with. His agents were very reliable as we had to do multiple days with very early morning starts and they always turned up on time and the communication was great. I found the cost was very well priced and would highly recommend Gavin and his team.
