Here are a few recent examples of requests for user information that we received from government sources. We did not provide information in response to any of these requests.
Law enforcement requested information about a site owner who posted links to third party sites where visitors could find video and audio files “with German subtitles related to the radical-islamic organisation ISLAMIC STATE (IS).”
- Law enforcement requested user information relating to allegedly false and defamatory information.
- Law enforcement requested information about a user who posted information about a child abuse case, which allegedly contravened a restriction order.
- Law enforcement sent an email to request information about a user who “created a website, posted a picture of our complainant (not her but looks similar) and has circulated it to her friends.”
