Use of cloud analytics / extraction

We're waiting for Millie to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear West Mercia Police,

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,

Privacy International
