There is much much more to doing a background check than just using Google. Those individuals or companies that are conducting such online background checks, could actually be violating B.C.’s Personal Information and Protection of Privacy Act, BC Security Services Act and the B.C. Human Rights Code.
"Recognize that any information collected about individuals is personal information or employee personal information and is subject to privacy laws, whether or not the information is publicly available online or whether it is online but subject to limited access as a result of privacy settings or other restrictions.” OIPC May 2017
Our digital background checks are designed to help employers screen prospective employees, volunteers and candidates during the hiring process, thus reducing potential hiring risks. Our comprehensive online research mitigates hiring risks by collecting available and relevant personal information about a subject via open sources located on the Internet. This information can then be used to validate a candidate’s education and employment history provided in a resume, or even to help validate answers that a candidate provides during an initial interview.
When conducting our Digital Background Checks, we ensure that we comply with "Guidelines for Social Media Background Checks”published by the Office of the Information and Privacy Commisioner for British Columbia in May 2017:
What we do is more than just a basic Google search, our team use their skills as Advanced Open Source Intelligence Police Investigators to locate relevant information about hiring candidates, that may be “publicly” found in both the light and deep web, something that a plain Google search alone can’t do.
