Arkansas Freedom of Information Act:

Information which can be identified or associated with a particular person or persons that is available from government websites is subject to these principles and policies.

  • The Arkansas government has information about individuals, or which can be identified or associated with a particular individual, and this information is contained in the public records of the Arkansas state and local government.  The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act addresses the type of government information that is available to the public.  See Ark.

  • The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act recognizes many concerns people have with regard to public records that include information about them, including the right to correct inaccurate information.  Consequently, persons concerned with regard to information about them should contact the custodian of the record, which typically is the state agency or other governmental entity that collects and maintains the information.
  • The information collected should only be that necessary to provide the information or services sought by the requester, just as a person might provide such information when visiting a governmental office in person.  The information collected is subject to the same controls and uses as that collected by governmental offices visited in person, again subject to the access and confidentiality provisions of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, Ark Code Ann.,§25-19-101 through 25-19-107, or to other applicable sections of the Arkansas Code.  You do not have to provide personal information to visit the websites or download this information.
