Subparts F and G implement the PA (5 U.S.C. 552a) and DoD Directives 5400.11 series and 5400.11–R series, and provide DON policies and procedures to ensure that all DON military members and civilian/contractor employees are made fully aware of their rights and responsibilities under the provisions of the PA; to balance the government's need to maintain information with the obligation to protect individuals against unwarranted invasions of their privacy stemming from the DON's collection, maintenance, use and disclosure of personally identifiable information; and to require privacy management practices and procedures be employed to evaluate privacy risks in publicly accessible DON websites and unclassified non-national security information systems.
