For anything else we would rely upon the below;

 

Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) places two duties
on public authorities.  Unless exemptions apply, the first duty at Section
1(1) (a) is to confirm or deny whether the information specified in a
request is held.  The second duty at Section 1(1) (b) is to disclose
information that has been confirmed as being held.  Where exemptions are
relied upon Section 17 of FOIA requires that we provide the applicant with
a notice which: a) states that fact b) specifies the exemption(s) in
question and c) states (if that would not otherwise be apparent) why the
exemption applies.

Cleveland Police can neither confirm nor deny that it holds any other
information pertinent to this request as the duty in Section 1(1) (a) of
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not apply, by virtue of the
following exemption:

Section 40(5) Personal Information

This should not be taken as conclusive evidence that any information that
would meet your request exists or does not exist.

Section 40 is an absolute exemption, which means that the legislators have
identified that harm would be caused by any release.  In addition there is
no requirement to consider the public interest test.

By way of explanation to you I would point out the following: Under
subsection 2 of Section 40 of The Freedom of Information Act, information
is exempt information if it constitutes personal information of which the
applicant is not the data subject. In order to be considered exempt
personal information, the information must satisfy one of two conditions.
It must either be information which would be exempt from disclosure to the
data subject under the provisions of the Data Protection Act (General Data
Protection Regulation) 2018, or disclosure of the information would
contravene any of the Data Protection Principles or cause damage or
distress to the data subject.

 

On this occasion the information requested is clearly personal information
and would contravene the first principle of the Data protection Act 2018
(GDPR) - Article 5(1) requires that personal data shall be: 

(a) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to
individuals (‘lawfulness, fairness and transparency’) that is what are the
likely expectations of the data subjects, in that would they expect the
Cleveland Police to release personal details to the world, since release
of information under The Freedom of Information Act 2000, is release to
the world at large and not just to the individual applicant and as such I
believe to do so would amount to unfair processing and hence therefore is
exempt under Section 40(2)(a).

 

Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 is a class based and
absolute exemption. This indicates that the legislators when writing this
piece of legislation considered that the release of this type of
information would cause harm to either the authority or the individuals
involved.

 

Please note any statistical data supplied in relation to Freedom of
Information requests is a snapshot of data held at the time the request
was received by the Freedom of Information office and is subject to
constant change/updates.

 

The Cleveland Police response to your request is unique and it should be
noted that Police Forces do not use generic systems or identical
procedures to capture and record data therefore responses from Cleveland
Police should not be used as a comparison with any other force response
you receive.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response or any actions taken in
dealing with your request you have the right to request an independent
internal review of your case under our review procedure. The APP College
of Policing guidance states that a request for internal review should be
made within 20 working days of the date on this response or 40 working
days if extenuating circumstances to account for the delay can be
evidenced.

 

We have made every effort to ensure a response was provided within
statutory deadlines, however due to current circumstances delays have been
unavoidable.  If your response was late we apologise for any inconvenience
it may have caused and thank you for your patience.  If we can be of any
further assistance please do not hesitate to contact this office.

 

Yours sincerely,
