If you are a law enforcement officer seeking information from Inflection about one of our users, please reference our Law Enforcement Guidelines for further information.
Unless prohibited from doing so by law or court order, we will do our best to provide subjects – including candidates - of law enforcement requests with advance notice before we disclose their information to law enforcement, if we have contact information for that customer.
