Privacy Act Statement

**The information requested by the New Requester Registration Form is collected to efficiently and accurately process record requests and administrative appeals under the FOIA and PA, as well as access, notification, and amendment requests and appeals under the PA. Additionally the information may be used to assist the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in carrying out any other responsibilities under the FOIA or PA including reporting requirements, such as the Annual FOIA Report.  Information collected in the New Requestor Registration page will allow the PAL system to send status updates to the Requestor through email. The authority for the collection of the information is the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. § 552a, and SEC Rule 83 (17 CFR 200.83). The SEC will only share information from within the FOIA and PA program with external organizations when required by statute, executive order, regulation, or policy and for the response of a FOIA and/or PA request. Additional information about the permitted uses of the information can be found in System of Records Notice SEC-24, “Freedom of Information and Privacy Act Requests.”  Providing the information requested is voluntary.  The requestor can still obtain a status of their FOIA request by entering the case number of the request into the PAL system.  A requestor that does register will be able to receive email status updates and to see additional information about their requests.**
