The client (you) gives the guarantee to us to keep the confidentiality as well. You has addressed to the agency, that is specialized in private investigations on behalf of its client. Our direct duty is to guard the client against any information leakage. Therefore, the client has not to disclose both details and results of this private investigation to any third parties as well. The third parties can be:

If we have got evidences that details of the case were disclosed through the client's fault, we can stop any further work on this case or decline the case at all.

3. After ordering our services (during the investigation and in certain period after the investigation) our client engages and undertake for the terms:
 - do not contact the object and do not try to fulfill any parallel (simultaneous) investigation until our people will have finished with the work. Else it will make any further works impossible. All you have to do during the work is just to wait while our people are collecting the information. Any investigative process is not easy at all, therefore each thing has big importance. To make any mistakes is not acceptable.
 - do not inform the object about our investigative methods. Else the object will change the strategy and it will complicated the work very much or even make the work impossible at all.
 - the object should know neither of our company, nor about this investigation, nor about our methods, nor about your possible discovery.

3.1.  By accepting these terms the client concludes the contract with the Detective-Russia company. He/her guarantees proper fulfillment of the agreement's terms.

4. Guarantee. If we are unable to meet our engagements or to find the requested information for some reasons, then we undertake to refund the money to a customer. We always give to our customer as much as possible reliable search results. In many cases we can realize an additional investigation according to special agreement with a client.

4.1. The client realizes and agree, that due to specificity of investigative work a certain risk exists always.
We can not provide 100% guarantee of success in all cases. On behalf of the client we try to obtain maximum necessary information, so it is unreal to avoid all errors. However we can promise and guarantee to minimize the risk as much as possible (almost to 0%).
In the case of disclosure on unforeseeable consequences the client undertakes not to blame the investigators about possible destruction of his life, etc. In most such cases the object just needs a convenient reason to stop private/business relationships with the client. Client must clearly understand it.

5. Any case requires certain time for preparation, checking the data and the reliability of client (usually it takes 3-5 days depending on the complexity of your case). So, if you intend to hire us, then please, make your decision, provide us with the exact data and fulfill your payment in good time.
If the client demands urgent fulfillment of the work in the term that is less than we can afford (minimum duration is 3 days) or the client does not want to wait 48hours after placing of his order through our site, then we can decline the case and refund the necessary fee to the client without any considerations.

5.0. All incoming requests will be declined if:
- the client contacts us because of curiosity only or
- the client refuses to provide his direct contact details and his name or
- the client refuses to provide his case details for our initial consideration.

In order to avoid any misunderstanding about the prices, we do not make any "general estimations".
Standard rates can be found at the Order section of our site.
In order to estimate properly the opportunity, the time and the exact cost of the client's case we usually need some basic information
on the investigation object which the client has gathered by now.
Usually the client should prepare and send us such data (if applicable):

- DOB or age,
- home address,

- the person's known phones #,

- All other details, which you think can be helpful for us.

Then the client's case will be considered in details, the client will be informed with the time and the exact cost in 24h term.

5.2. After we have calculated the work duration and the total cost, we send the invoice to the client.  The invoice is valid during 3 days. Then the invoice data can be changed: estimation, exchange rate and the  work duration can be re-calculated. So, please, always inform us that you have really received the invoice and when your payment is fulfilled. 

5.3. As a rule we do not allow to change terms of the agreement (duration, items of investigation, the targets of investigation, etc), that had been agreed before your payment. Because the changes always influence on and change the total budget, our strategy, approach to the target, etc. Besides we do not welcome any other additions, inserts, changes which can be done by our client during the investigation. That is why, please, consider thoroughly about what you would like to get as the result of investigation and how much money you are ready to spend on the investigation. 

5.4. If during the detailed main investigation the object will be detected as a scammer and the proofs are gathered, then the payment is not returned to the client. It does not matter if the obtained information is disappointing or pleasant for our client.

The client must make the full payment in 3 days term after his consent. If during this period the client wishes to stop investigative actions for any reasons,
then he must notify us about the interrupting and settle the account with us: pay the fee 30% of the total  agreed amount.
However if the client does not pay the fee or even disappears at all, our company reserves the right to ourselves to stop observance of this Terms and Conditions.
It may influence serious negative consequences for your further developing of this case and all other investigations in the future. Besides we will have to take measures to return this debt by any of legal ways, including to file a claim with a court and authorities.

All these actions relate to jurisdiction of police and court. After the client's application the police gather proofs of the crime for the court. Then only the court has legal rights to accuse/justify a person of doing the crime. According to the local legislation private investigators are permitted to gather different information for the client, which allows to avoid any crime.

So, our client must clearly understand and accept it.
