Question: What are the reason for collecting this information?
Answer: To enable us to process the complaint and IOPC statistical reasons (and I think in part for compliance with the Discrimination Act)
Question: Where is the information stored once it has been emailed?
Answer: Restricted access folder on the Force internal system with a link to Centurion
Question: Who has access to this information?
Answer: PSD staff
Question: How long is the information held for?
Answer: Depends – it is retained in line with MOPI (depends on the seriousness of the complaint)
Question: If a person wants to have the emailed information deleted, or removed from any Force database, or devices it has been saved to which email address do they send this request to and how long will the process take.
Answer: Don’t know as it has never happened before. They can email professional standards and it will take as long as it takes. Most complainants simply don’t provide the information if they don’t want us to have it.
Question: Will you be able to email them to let them know that you have deleted all the information from your systems?
