DATA PROTECTION ISSUES CONCERNING CALLING LINE IDENTITY

From the Telecommunications Manager

From Monday, 5 April, unless you request otherwise, people outside the university who receive telephone calls from your university extension will be able to see your individual DDI telephone number, by using a display phone or the 1471 BT service. This is known as your Calling Line Identity (CLI). Your CLI will be your full telephone number, so, for example, calls from the extension 88661, will be identified as coming from Oxford 288661, and not, as currently, a general number for the whole network.

This should be of general benefit because of the increasing use of CLI to identify the source of incoming calls and to screen unwanted calls, but it is recognised that there are some members of staff for whom release of their CLI could be inconvenient or inappropriate. You therefore have the right to request that your individual number is not transmitted as a CLI, in the same way that you can request to be ex-directory.

This can be done by asking your Telecommunications Co-ordinator (who is normally your administrator or bursar) to arrange for your extension to have Class of Service 24. All calls from your extension will thereafter be shown outside the university as having the CLI withheld. We regret that it is not possible at the moment to choose whether or not to suppress your CLI on individual calls.

Any concerns about this change in policy should be addressed to the Telecommunications Help Desk on extension 88888 (or e-mail: telecommunications@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Note: the above does not apply to student network telephones. CLI is withheld on calls from all 2xxxx student lines.
