Staff members have a responsibility to safeguard the confidentiality of those enquiring for information from Inform, and those providing information to Inform. Staff also have a responsibility to record any information received accurately.
All personal information given by enquirers is treated as strictly confidential unless the persons concerned give permission for it to be made available to others. It should be noted that Inform does not enjoy legal privilege. This means that it is not protected by law from disclosure (the withholding of information).
However, Inform has fought (successfully) in a court of law to protect the anonymity of its informants.
