Edit the Confluence "Not Permitted" Page, is this possible?

I'd like to add a bit more form and function to the "Not Permitted" page. By default, when a user is navigated somewhere within Confluence that they do not have rights to access, they see this page. It's fairly basic with some plain text saying just that, not permitted.

Is there a way I could edit this?

I'm running v4.0.4.

All the best,

Anyone know if this is possible when running an Atlassian cloud instance?
