Privacy Act Introduction

The Privacy Act of 1974, as amended at 5 U.S.C. 552a, protects records that are retrieved by personal identifiers such as a name, social security number or other identifying number or symbol. An individual is entitled to access to his or her records and to request correction of these records if applicable.

The Privacy Act prohibits disclosure of these records without written individual consent unless one of the twelve disclosure exceptions enumerated in the Act applies. These records are held in Privacy Act systems of records. A notice of any such system is published on this Privacy System Notices page.

As with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the Privacy Act binds only Federal agencies, and covers only records in the possession and control of Federal agencies.

Who Can Submit

You must be a United States citizen or an alien lawfully admitted for permanent residence to the U.S. to make a request for Privacy Act records.

Air Force Records

The Air Force maintains Privacy Act systems of records on individuals who are or have been affiliated with the Air Force (i.e. military members, civilian and contractor employees, and dependents).

A system of records is any group of records from which we retrieve information by a person's name or another personal identifier, such as a social security number.

Therefore, if you have had no affiliation with the Air Force, we would not be maintaining any records on you.
