Dear Rose Bruford College,

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 are 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.

4. If you filter, is the policy any different on student residences
a) Do you supply Internet to any private student accommodation that you have a contractual relationship with

Sincerely,

Charlie Parker
Open Rights Group

Jean Bibbey, Rose Bruford College

Dear Charlie Parker

 

In response to your FOI request:

 

The College has no public internet and no filtering on client internet
access.

 

I confirm that the College does record and log all access.

 

With kind regards
