When you make a request, we need your name and contact details so we can process and reply to your request.
In certain circumstances, where you have asked for your own personal data, we may also need information that proves who you are or that you are entitled to see the information you have asked for.
We are required to process this information to comply with our legal obligations.
We will not collect any personal data from you that we do not need.
We will only use the personal information to process your access request and any follow-up questions and to check on the level of service we provide.
We may need to share your request and contact details with the Information Commissioner’s Officer in connection with any appeal, investigation or audit.
IPSA compiles statistics for our internal reports, such as the number of requests we receive. When we do this, it is done in a way that does not identify the person who made the request.
We also publish anonymised responses to Freedom of Information and Environmental Information requests in our FOI disclosure log.
