Privacy Act Notices & Regs

The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. § 552a) governs the collection, maintenance, use, and dissemination of personally identifiable information about individuals in systems of records (SORNs) maintained by Federal agencies. A system of records is an agency record-keeping system which contains information that can be retrieved by the name of the individual or by some other personal identifier. The Privacy Act requires that agencies give the public notice of their systems of records by publication in the Federal Register. The Privacy Act prohibits the disclosure of personal information about an individual without the written consent of the individual, unless the disclosure is permitted under one of twelve statutory exceptions. The Act also gives individuals the right to gain access to their records and ask that they be amended.
