Routine Uses of Records Maintained in CSOSA Systems, Including Categories of Users and the Purposes of Such Uses: System records may be disclosed to the following persons or entities under the circumstances or for the purposes described below to the extent such disclosures are compatible with the purposes for which the information was collected.
