There are lots of information that are held confidential. Such examples are records or files of a business firm or a particular person’s life. And yet, this confidential information get exposed by the people without taking such considerations. The thing is, people make it so easier to spread information in an unconstrained conversation with other people without even knowing if such information are proven to be true.

One way of getting information is by conducting series of interviews with random people in order to connect or solve the puzzle piece by piece (most especially when solving a cold case or an incident/accident). Formal interviews are used and conducted for various  reasons. It could be conducted for interrogation/investigation of a crime or incidents/accidents, a discussion, meeting or conference, etc. Whatever purpose it serves, a consent and release form from the subject to be interviewed must be secured.
