This privacy statement only covers the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse website at This statement does not cover links within this site to other websites.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse website does not store or capture personal information of anyone browsing the website, but merely logs the user's IP address that is automatically recognised by the web server.

Where you use the submit information form on the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse website, we will record your email address and other information, if you have chosen to provide this, for the purpose of entering into correspondence with you about the matters raised in your form. This shall be treated as proprietary and confidential.

We are required to pass on any allegation about child abuse to the police. However, we will not pass on your name or contact details without your consent, except where it is necessary to protect a child at risk of continuing abuse.

We will otherwise treat all the information we receive in the strictest confidence. You can also choose to give information to the Inquiry anonymously if you want (this means that you will not have to give your name).

If you think that a child or adult is at risk of harm, or of being abused, you should also report this straight to your local police.
