Jersey Data Protection conference 2024 (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 31 October 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please provide details on how much the data protection conference being hosted in Jersey next year is going to cost in total, and how much of this will be funded by the taxpayer (either directly or indirectly through Government of Jersey grant funding to the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner).
Please can you also advise as to why the particular dates were chosen to coincide with half term week when surely hospitality is also likely to benefit?
This event is organised and managed by the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner (JOIC) which is an independent organisation, therefore the information requested is not held by the Government of Jersey. Article 3 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.
You may wish to send your query directly to JOIC; however, it should be noted that they are not a Scheduled Public Authority and therefore not obliged to respond under Freedom of Information legislation. Contact details can be found below:
