To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
Comprehensive copy or copies of my personal information compiled by the FBI from: contractors, online APIs, or Fusion Center aggregates who conduct or produce surveillance, consultants who produce consumer investigative reports or who provide market intelligence services for online products and services to government agencies for mass surveillance purposes and other information related services as non-criminal, inactive, or unproductive investigative leads.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
This message is to confirm your request submission to the FOIAonline application: View Request. Request information is as follows: (https://foiaonline.regulations.gov:443/foia/action/public/view/request?objectId=090004d280d42d66)
* Tracking Number: DOJ-2016-004089
* Requester Name: S Dean
* Date Submitted: 07/11/2016
* Request Status: Submitted
* Description: FOIA request
Thank you for your efforts to produce my personal records via the MuckRock forum. I will be withdrawing this request and submitting another similar to the DOJ c/o the FBI's FOIA dept to produce Privacy Act records. These records, of course, may contain sensitive personal information.
Michael Morisy at MuckRock.com offered to help me withdraw the request, as a courtesy service, because they are not equipped to produce FOIA reports in a private way at this time.
MuckRock.com is not currently a forum to help produce FOIA requests with personal or private information. They post most or all information from responsive government requests to their platform publicly (or live online). I was informed of this today.
Again, I requested to withdraw this FOIA with a certain expectation, made plain, that [my] personal records should not be posted, here, live online. My hope is that MuckRock.com will add certain consumer privacy controls soon appropriate for personal FOIA requests in the future. This should save everyone involved the pains associated with liability.
Thank you for your patience with these important and timely matters.
Dear Mr. Dean:
Please see the attached correspondence pertaining to your FOIA request.
