for privacy reasons under Exemption 7(C), and 7(D) provides protection of records which

could reasonably be expected to identify confidential sources, irrespective of whether

that confidence was express or implied. Exemption 7(E) protects investigative techniques,

procedures, and guidelines where such disclosure could reasonably be expected to risk

circumvention of the law. Finally, certain commercial and/or financial information may be

redacted under Exemption 4 of the FOIA. For complete information on the FOIA, as well

as detailed explanations of each exemption, see: www.justice.gov/oip/foi-act.htm
