## What is this
Andrew Fielding ran a session at BlueLightCamp 2014 looking at what the limits should be on police and by extension other public bodies use of publicly available social media data. There was some discussion and we reached no firm conclusions except there seemed to be a consensus that it would be good practice for public bodies to publish a statement on their approach to these data.

This is my first stab on what that might look like. I really hope we can collaborate on it.

## Our approach to gathering and processing open source intelligence data

### This covers
This document sets out to explain what we do with information people publish into the public areas of social networks and other parts of the Internet which they did not explicitly intend us to see. This sort of information is often called "open source intelligence".

### This definitely does not cover
This document does not cover how we find or what we do with information that people normally keep private.

It also does not cover information that people have knowingly and explicitly provided to us even if this was on social networks.

### The principles underpinning our approach

Just because we can see what people publish online does not mean that we should see what people publish online.
You should be able to expect that you can talk to people and keep your conversations private from us unless we have a good reason to view your conversations.
We don't need as strong a reason to gather open source intelligence as we do to gather intelligence that you have not published in publish.
Whenever we gather open source intelligence we will limit the scope of our searching and the time we hold the data based on an assessment of what is proportionate.
