Our Commitment to Safety

In a digital world, digital footprints are seismic. At OSINT Industries, we are acutely aware of preventing the earthquakes that data insecurity can unleash in our users’ lives. We take the responsibilities of handling open-source intelligence (OSINT) seriously, especially when it comes to privacy and safety.

There’s nothing more important to us than our platform users’ safety. For that reason, maintaining our platform’s integrity (and reputation for integrity among our users) is paramount in everything we at OSINT Industries do.

Our Commitment to Accuracy

We think this commitment is evident in the accuracy of all our advanced OSINT tools. We’re proud of our selector enrichment - this OSINT tech is what delivers our swift real-time identification of online accounts via specific emails or phone numbers. 

But our selector enrichment technology is not only designed to meet our high standards for (unbeatable) accuracy. We also prioritise privacy and top-drawer data security within our accurate results. Our system accesses only publicly shared information, and this means personal data is ever stored by our systems.

Our Commitment to Ethical Intelligence

Ethical intelligence gathering is central to our operations. This means we always strictly adhere to the legal frameworks established in OSINT practice. Our practices must always respect personal privacy. Therefore the information we provide is all publicly available, always: account existence, profile links, images, or geographical data.

Our No Storage Policy

Let’s talk about our No Storage Policy. We do not collect or retain searches or results, not now and not ever. 

By never storing this data, our platform minds its own business - not yours. User anonymity is vital. Our No Storage Policy effectively safeguards our users against unauthorized access, data breaches and plain old snooping. 

Now for the legal points. OSINT Industries’ No Storage Policy also helps us to comply with privacy regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) in the USA. We know how important that compliance is for keeping your trust, and keeping our platform going.

Our Commitment to Transparency

Transparency and trust matter to us. This commitment keeps us open about the way OSINT Industries works; we provide clear links to our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions, and we encourage all our users to read them. Access them below:
