Your information

We collect information because we need it as part of what we do.


We live in a digital age. Technology like the internet allows us to collect and store information online as ‘data’.

For Customs, this data includes personal information collected from people and companies we interact with.

  • What happens to your information?
  • Who sees it? 
  • Why do we need it?
  • How can you be sure it’s kept private and safe?
