The Website may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) to the appropriate governmental authorities.
State agencies may not sell or release the email addresses of most members of the public that have been provided to communicate electronically with a government body without the affirmative consent of the affected member of the public. Exemptions to this confidentiality may be reviewed at TGC 552.137. Personally identifiable information contained in a question or comment sent to DIR in an email message or submitted in an online form is only used by DIR to respond to the request and to analyze trends. To the extent necessary and appropriate, DIR may redirect the message to another government agency or government employee who is in a better position to answer the question.
