Search results and results profiles are provided for informational purposes only. While we endeavor to provide you with the most up to date and comprehensive information, certain inaccuracies may still exist and certain records may be omitted.

We may also provide you publicly available information and public records, including but not limited to criminal and court records when you conduct a search using our Services. Positive or false matches based on our assumptions or records may not provide conclusive confirmation of an individual’s record– for example, there could be instances where the gender of the names coupled with statistics of common ages indicates a person when it is in fact another person; this could be the result of the aforementioned logic-based results, which may not apply in all cases but which make the most sense based on ages, addresses shared, and dates shared.
