Dear North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust,

I am writing as a Research Volunteer at the Open Rights Group. We are conducting a study to better understand filtering and blocking of websites on the public estate, to understand what content and sites are inaccessible and why.

We would like to know, in relation to your publicly accessible Internet networks, or Internet networks for your clients:

1) The categories of content blocked or filtered, eg:
a) Security or Malware
b) Content types, eg adult, alcohol etc
c) Statistics relating to the requests blocked or filtered, eg how many site requests filtered or blocked per category

2) Monitoring requirements you have for users, eg if you record or may record their Internet usage

3) The supplier of your blocking or filtering software
a) Eg, Sophos, Forcepoint, Palo Alto etc

Yours faithfully,

Markos Volikas
