This page defines the general Army policy governing the use of its external internet resources. The UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) is the operating authority for the official army.mod.uk domain name.
All MOD information systems are liable to a recording and monitoring regime intended to maintain security and to ensure that Army internet services remain available to all users. This includes automated and manual audit procedures to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
Any information recorded is not used to identify individual users or their usage habits unless required for duly authorised security or law enforcement activities. Raw data logs are used and retained for no other purposes. See the Privacy page for further information on our privacy policies.
This Army website is published under the authority of the Secretary of State for Defence and contains information duly sanctioned for release to the general public. It is subject to the copyright regulations laid down in this site.
Unauthorised attempts to upload information or change information on these services are strictly prohibited and are punishable under the Computer Misuse Act 1990.
Any website claiming to be an official Army asset should, therefore, use this official domain name. There are a number of legacy instances where this convention is not yet followed.
If any doubt exists as to the authenticity of a website not falling within this naming convention please notify the Army Communications Digital Team at Army HQ using this site's contact form.
