The Department's search of our records is complete and disclosable records have been identified. The records are provided herewith at no charge.

State agencies are required by FOIL and the Personal Privacy Protection Law (Public Officers Law §§ 87[2][b], 89[2], and 96[1]) to redact the personal identifying information from these records that, if disclosed, could constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.

If any document has been withheld, or if any information has been redacted, or if you believe that you have not been provided all disclosable records responsive to your request, you have the right to treat this response as a partial denial. Pursuant to Public Officers Law § 89(4) you have the right to submit an appeal within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of this correspondence. Any such appeal must be in writing and addressed to: Joseph Ball, Records Appeals Officer, NYS Department of State, One Commerce Plaza 11th Floor, 99 Washington Avenue, Suite 1120, Albany, New York 12231-0001.
