Illegal Internet content arrangements

The request was successful.

Dear Aberystwyth University,

Can you please supply me with a list of agreements, arrangements or Memorandums of Understanding between yourselves and bodies such as the Internet Watch Foundation and the Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to receive lists of illegal content, for instance for the purposes of blocking.

If this task is subcontracted, for instance to an Internet access provider, please give me details of their contractual obligations, such as duties to block such content to your users.

Dear Mr Killock,

 

I am writing in response to your recent request for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’).

 

Can you please supply me with a list of agreements, arrangements or
Memorandums of Understanding between yourselves and bodies such as the
Internet Watch Foundation and the Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit
of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to receive lists of illegal
content, for instance for the purposes of blocking.

 

If this task is subcontracted, for instance to an Internet access
provider, please give me details of their contractual obligations, such as

Under section 1(1)(a) of the Act I can confirm that we do not hold any

Dear Info Compliance [infstaff],

Thank you very much for your reply. As a follow up, could you give me:

(1) the name of any providers of Internet filtering and blocking services that you use, or else a statement that you do not block or filter content at all;

(2) tell me if any filtering or blocking service that you use incorporates lists from the IWF, CTIRU or PIPCU, and which lists are incorporated; and

(3) provide to me any clauses within any contract or terms and conditions of service agreed with your filtering and blocking providers that relate to their use of information from the IWF, CTIRU or PIPCU.

Yours sincerely,

Jim Killock
