Is Personal Information Excluded From Maryland Public Records
Maryland public records contain a great deal of information from the state of Maryland. Anything the government creates, collects, distributes, etc., is considered for public record, and most of the things within the government make it - even when that data is on its citizens.
Yet those that live in the state will find that much of their most private information is still excluded from Maryland public records. For example, you can't find social security numbers even though they are collected by the government because that could easily be used to breach someone's privacy. Other examples of excluded personal information include:
Medical Histories - Your medical history is not a part of Maryland public records, because even though the government often collects that data, it is not considered to be the type of information that is of interest to the public at large.
Student Records - Similarly, your grades and student history are considered private/personal, so your student records are kept out of Maryland public records as well, even if you went to public school.
Library Checkouts - Libraries are owned and operated by the government, so anything within the library can become part of public record, but the books you check out are considered personal, so they are not released.
Public records do contain a lot of information, but your most personal information is going to be excluded, to ensure that your privacy isn't breached.
