All professionals from Polygraph India may only carry out a polygraph exam on a person who voluntarily decided to submit to the polygraph exam, regardless of the circumstances that gave rise to the test, it being imperative that the subject confirm their consent in writing, signing the corresponding document. Polygraph India does not administer polygraph exams against the will of the subject and therefore undertakes to respect the will of the person examined.

1.3. All polygraph tests carried out by Polygraph India are confidential, and the disclosure of the information obtained is only possible with the explicit consent of the person examined. The tested subject is the only one who can indicate the persons or entities receiving the test results, unless this is required by court order or by law.
