Use of cloud analytics / extraction

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Lancashire Constabulary should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Lancashire 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 [

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,

Good Morning,


I write to you with regards to your Freedom of Information request which
we received on 13/01/2020.


Due to the similarity between your request and a request that we have
processed in the past, we have reason to believe that we have not been
provided with your legitimate name. As such may I please ask that you
provide proof of identification in the form of a driving licence /

The ‘clock’ counting down the 20 working day protocol for disclosure will
be stopped until identification has been received from yourself. I.e.
clarification has been sought on the 18th day, therefore when
clarification has been received we shall still have 2 working days to deal
with your request.


Please note that if we do not receive any clarification from you be
advised that your request will be closed with no further action after 60
working days.
