Are there any restrictions on how I can use the information I obtain?

The Act itself does not place restrictions on how the information supplied under it may be used.

But you should, of course, have regard to the laws of the land. It must not be used for any illegal purposes and you should not use it in a way which could leave you open to prosecution or other forms of litigation.

In particular, it should be noted that the Freedom Of Information Act 2000 does not transfer copyright in any information supplied under it.
