Accurint

Accurint is a source of information available through Lexis-Nexis. It allows the user access to real estate and personal information on the client. Accurint® is the most widely accepted locate-and-research tool available to government, law enforcement and commercial customers. Its proprietary data-linking technology returns search results in seconds to the user’s desktop. All of this information is confidential and highly personal. It must be safe guarded at all time.  You must limit its use to Tax Clinic clients with their permission.
Accurint tracks usage and their internal periodic audits determine whether there are abuses.  If a question arises, you should contact either the director or associate director’s attention immediately.

The access to Accurint is limited to Clinic II students. They must notify their supervisor by email in advance of conducting an Accurint search.  No search may be conducted except on approved clinic clients. Each month there will be a list provided by Accurint to the clinic supervisor of searches conducted. The Accurint password may not be shared with anyone. These rules shall be strictly enforced and any deviation from them may give rise to an Honor Code violation.
