Use of cloud analytics / extraction

We're waiting for Abdul Hai to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear North Wales 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,

Abdul Hai

Dear Abdul Hai,

 

In response to your Freedom of Information request dated 01/02/2020 sent
to North Wales Police, I would like to point out the following:

 

The Freedom of Information Act is a piece of legislation which quite
rightly opens up public authorities to greater scrutiny and
accountability.

 

Under the provision of the Act an authority must process a request in
writing from a named applicant under the terms and conditions of the
legislation.  Whilst giving maximum support to individuals genuinely
seeking to exercise the right to know, the Commissioner’s general approach
will be sympathetic towards authorities where request can be characterised
as being part of a campaign.  Therefore, with regard to this request we
are issuing a Section 14(1) Vexatious Refusal Notice.  Please be aware
that any future requests asking for the same information and from the same
named individuals will attract this exemption.

 

I have also attached a copy of our review procedure should you not be
happy with our response.

 

Regards,

 

P.P. Ceri Hollingworth
