Internet search history increasingly plays a key evidentiary role. The Internet bookmarks show the computer user’s favorite websites. The Internet history and browsing data show the websites the computer user actually visited. Here are a few examples of the importance of this type of data:
- Family Law Case: The browser history showed the husband was hiding marital assets at an offshore bank.
- Employment Case: To defend an employment discrimination claim, the Internet history on the work computer showed the employee was spending over two hours per day viewing porn at work.
- Copyright Infringement: The Internet history showed the website where the defendant downloaded copyrighted photos that he used on his website.
We have years of experience when it comes to collecting evidence from Internet history and browsing data. Our evidence collection includes data that has been removed or deleted, so you know you can trust in us to find the information you need to benefit your case. We work for either side in the case (plaintiff or defendant) and will make the best efforts to recover the evidence you need.
Using Browser Forensics to Collect & Preserve
We work with almost any type of smartphone or computer, no matter its condition. Frequently our browser forensics experts recover all existing and previously deleted data.
We handle the data extraction remotely. This means we will ship you our BlackBox and conduct the forensics examination remotely. Then, you return the BlackBox to us using our pre-paid shipping label and box. Once complete, we provide you with an Evidence Report for easy legal review.
Duty to Preserve Evidence and Avoid Spoliation
Once a party has a reasonable anticipation of litigation, they have an obligation to preserve evidence. Deleting Internet search history evidence from a user’s phone or computer may lead to sanctions, or worse. Thus, you must take reasonable measures to preserve relevant evidence. Consider a Litigation Response Plan to limit your risk and streamline eDiscovery with proper procedures.
