Pete Algar dos Santos

Dear Gloucestershire Constabulary,

I am aware that companies are selling technologies to law enforcement that allow them to take vast quantities of personal data from cloud-based apps and accounts. You can read more [https://privacyinternational.org/long-re....

I make the following request for documents/information under the Freedom of Information Act:

1. Do you use mobile phone extraction technology that includes cloud analytics / cloud extraction capabilities e.g. Cellebrite UFED Cloud Analyser, Magnet Axiom Cloud or Oxygen Forensics Cloud Extractor

2. Do you have other technologies that allow you to access cloud-based accounts and extract this data.

3. Please provide a copy of the relevant Data Protection Impact Assessment.

4. Please provide a copy of the relevant local and/or national guidance/standard operating procedure/policy.

5. Please confirm the legal basis you rely on to conduct cloud analytics/extraction.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Peter Algar dos Santos

Dear Gloucestershire Constabulary,

It is more than 20 days and I have not yet had a response (other than confirming my request has been received). In that message, I was advised that I would be notified if additional time was needed beyond the statutory 20 days, but I have not heard that this is the case either.

By law, authorities are normally required to respond to FOI requests within this 20 day time frame.

Yours faithfully,

Pete Algar dos Santos
