Notice to Researchers

Persons who use information about living people from the archives have a duty, under data protection legislation, not to use that information in a way which may cause distress or damage to them.

Researchers should be aware that, if necessary, they may be required to sign a declaration or undertaking that, as a condition of access to data that might otherwise be closed, they will comply with the legislation and not identify individuals.

You should also be aware that, just because information is in the public domain, it does not necessarily make it lawful for you to make it public. Personal information is not covered by the Open Government Licence and may also be subject to copyright.
