While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this case we consider the information you have requested to be exempt information under FOISA Section 30 (c) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (Prejudice to effective conduct of public affairs). This exemption applies as the disclosure of this information would compromise the integrity and security of our information technology (IT) systems
This is a qualified exemption, therefore the information must be disclosed unless the public interest in disclosing the information is outweighed by the public interest in maintaining the exemption.
