The Spookspys Paranormal Research Team : Code of Ethics
•No drug use, including alcohol, before or during an investigation
•Get permission before entering property (preferably written).
•No littering – leave locations in better shape than we found them.

•When investigating public property, let the local police & authorities know your intentions.
TREAT CLIENTS WITH RESPECT:
•All paranormal investigations and evidence reveal will be free of charge on request.
•Property owners/clients should be the first people to see any evidence or hear about any personal experiences that was gathered. •No evidence, or reports should appear on the internet without written permission from the owner of the location.
•Respect all agreements made with the clients.
•Conduct events in a way that respects and protects the client’s privacy.
•Communicate completely with the client regarding what the investigation includes.
•We will only bring investigators who are known to us into private homes. Every investigation is a training opportunity, but a private home won’t be their *first* experience.

•Do not discuss possible evidence with the client until all evidence has been reviewed later by the whole group. Unless the client is present throughout the investigation.

•Treat other paranormal professionals and groups with respect.
•Assist in the advancement of Paranormal Research by helping to educate the public and potential clients.
•Continued Consultation after investigation is over.
Our Mission Statement:
It is the mission of Spookspys Paranormal Research Team, as a research group composed of believers, skeptics’ and open-minded skeptic's, to gather and interpret information in response to claims using investigation techniques and equipment. We Will employ the use of sensitives, but any psychic impressions gathered during an investigation will not be presented as evidence unless these impressions are verified via equipment and/or subsequent research. Unbiased information will be explained in a professional manner to those who have sought our input. Our aim is to also raise money for a dedicated charity or Project as our way of saying Thank you for allowing us in to investigate. We will happily set up a charity Just Giving Page to allow group members to take part or accept donations to help support the cause.
We can’t Guarantee you will hear or see anything on our investigations. Its always good to remember that you will experience (NHN) New House Noises- pipework settling down, creaking doors and floorboards there’s always a reason for a sudden temperature drop or a loud click ….things settle down after they’ve been on all day.
A LIGHT Anomaly or ORB as we know it is a particle that manifests in one place and can be seen on two separate cameras recording at the same time from different angles. These are not seen by the naked eye.
However, we will not rule out something we can’t explain is paranormal. Another key thing to remember is that old building’s are very dusty and have more air flow than a normal house we live in. Dust Particles traveling in the same direction is dust being pushed by the air flow this is not paranormal -SORRY!
When you as the Group Member submitted your Application to Join our group you have accepted these Rules and Regulations and code of Conduct. Please ensure you respect them they are here for a reason.
