Use and Maintenance of Personally Identifiable Information
To conduct some transactions online it may be necessary for users to provide personally identifiable information to the government agency.

Each agency makes reasonable efforts to maintain accurate, complete, timely, and relevant personally identifiable information as necessary to assure fairness when using that information to make any determination regarding the individual.
Your personally identifiable information will not be disclosed or used for purposes other than those specified, without your consent, except as authorized by law.

Access, including public access, to government records is controlled primarily by Chapter 92F, Hawaiʻi Revised Statutes.
