The Privacy Act of 1974: An Assessment. APPENDIX 4 TO The Report of The Privacy Protection Study Commission.. Notes


1 The Privacy Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-579) has been reprinted as Appendix A of this volume. Only Section 3 of the Act, however, has been codified in the U.S. Code. Hence, a reference in the text to [5 U.S.C 552a(e)(10)], for example, refers to subsection 3(e)(10) of Appendix A. References in the text to the illustrative statute (Appendix B) will be readily distinguishable by the absence of any reference to 5 U.S.C. 552a or to subsection "3."

2 5 U.S.C. 552a(a)(4).

3 See Chapter 3, footnote 6.

4 As indicated in footnote 1, above, this is a reference to the draft statute in Appendix B.
