§ 701.100 Purpose.

Subparts F and G of this part implement the Privacy Act ( 5 U.S.C. 552a), and the DOD Directives 5400.11 and 5400.11-R series, DOD Privacy Program (see 32 CFR part 310) and provides DON policies and procedures to ensure that all DON military members and civilian/contractor employees are made fully aware of their rights and responsibilities under the provisions of the Privacy Act (PA); to balance the Government's need to maintain information with the obligation to protect individuals against unwarranted invasions of their privacy stemming from the DON's collection, maintenance, use, and disclosure of Protected Personal Information (PPI); and to require privacy management practices and procedures be employed to evaluate privacy risks in publicly accessible DON Web sites and unclassified non-national security information systems.
