Privacy Act

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

What is the Privacy Act?

The Privacy Act allows an individual upon request to gain access to his/her record or any information pertaining to themselves, which is contained in a system of records.

The Privacy Act serves three purposes:

1. To allow individuals access to information about themselves,
2. To keep other people from having information about you that would warrant an invasion of personal privacy; and
3. To correct information that is being kept in a file that is incorrect.
