Notice: Protect Your Private Information

Most documents maintained by the Secretary of State’s Office are public records and are subject to disclosure. Filings may be viewed by the public and requested copies may also be made available.

Please do not submit Personal Identifiable Information (PII) unless you are specifically asked to provide it. The Secretary of State’s Office only collects personal identifiable information in a very limited number of cases and will specifically ask for it when it is required. PII includes your social security number, driver’s license number, state-issued ID number, credit or debit card number, or tax ID number on a UCC filing or any other documents you submit to the Secretary of State.

Although we attempt to prevent disclosure of personal identifiable information, due to the large number of documents filed, we cannot guarantee that if PII is placed on a document it will not be disclosed. It is the responsibility of the filer to ensure that PII is not contained on the filing and to notify the office for removal should any be found.
