Privacy Act Request

Read the pamphlet "Your Right to Federal Records: Questions and Answers on the Freedom of Information Act and the Privacy Act."

Using the sample request letter on page 11 of the pamphlet as a template, write your own Privacy Act request to an agency of your choice to obtain information that they may have about you.

For the purposes of this assignment, you do not have to actually send your request, although it may be interesting to see what you receive, if anything, from the agency you write to.
