This includes ensuring confidentiality and not disclosing the personal details of any child linked to a child protection concern. The names of all children cited in all publications and other materials by the Destination Unknown campaign have also been changed to guarantee their privacy and protect their identity.
Images featuring children are only published once it has been established that the safety of the child will not be compromised by doing so.

Information which could lead to the identification of the child, such as their name, address, school name or any other possibly identifying information is never stored as metadata within files containing images of children.
We take precautions to protect your information both online and offline. Only employees who need the information to perform specific actions are granted access to personally identifiable information.
