FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (5 U.S.C. 552)
This law provides, with some exceptions, that we must make records or portions of records contained in our files available to
persons requesting them. This generally includes aggregate statistical information on our disaster loan programs and other
information such as names of borrowers (and their officers, directors, stockholders orpartners), loan amounts at maturity, the
collateral pledged, and the general purpose of loans. Wedo not routinely make available to third parties your proprietary data
without first notifying you, asrequired byExecutive Order #12600, orinformation thatwould cause competitive harm orconstitute
a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
Freedom ofInformationAct (FOIA) requests must describe the specific records you want. For information abouttheFOIA, contact
the Chief, FOI/PA Office, 4093rd Street, SW, Suite 5900,Washington, DC 20416, or by e-mail at f
PRIVACY ACT (5 U.S.C. § 552a)
Anyone can request to see orgetcopies of anypersonal information that wehave in your file. Any personal information inyour file
that is retrieved byindividual identifiers, such as name or social security number is protected by the Privacy Act, which means
requests for information about you may be denied unless we have your written permission to release the information to the
requestor or unless the information is subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. The Agreements and
Certifications section of this form contains written permission for us to disclose the information resulting from this collection to
state, local or private disaster relief services.
The Privacy Act authorizes SBA tomake certain "routine uses" ofinformation protected bythat Act. One such routine use for SBA's
loan system of records is that when this information indicates a violation or potential violation of law, whether civil, criminal, or
administrative in nature, SBA may refer it to the appropriate agency, whether Federal, State, local or foreign, charged with
responsibility for orotherwise involved ininvestigation, prosecution, enforcement orprevention of such violations. Another routine
use of personal information isto assist in obtaining credit bureau reports, on the Disaster Loan Applicants and guarantors for
purposes oforiginating, servicing, andliquidating Disaster loans. See, 69F.R. 58598,58617(and asamended from time totime) for
additional background and other routine uses.
Under theprovisions of thePrivacy Act, you are notrequired toprovide social security numbers. (But see theinformation under
Debt Collection Act below) Weuse social security numbers todistinguish between people with a similar orthesame name for
credit decisions andfor debt collection purposes. Failure toprovide this number may not affect any right, benefit orprivilege to
which you are entitled bylaw, but having the number makes it easier for us to more accurately identify to whom adverse credit
information applies and to keep accurate loan records.
Note: Any person concerned with the collection, use and disclosure of information, under the Privacy Act may contact the Chief,
FOI/PA Office, 409 3rd Street, SW, Suite 5900, Washington, DC 20416 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
for information about the Agency's procedures relating to the Privacy Act and the Freedom of Information Act.
