The data ATRS collects on the website consists of a members name, city, years of service and
average final salary. There is a standard log kept of this information, but the data is not shared
with any other entities. The information is contained in the public records of the Arkansas state
and local government. The Arkansas Freedom of Information act addresses the type of
government information which is available to the public. See Ark. Code Ann. Ann. § 25-19-
105. Information generally available under the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act and not
made confidential elsewhere in the Arkansas Code or by federal law may be posted for
electronic access through the Information Network of Arkansas.
The Arkansas Freedom of Information Act recognizes many concerns people have with regard
to public records that include information about them, including the right to correct inaccurate
information. Consequently, persons concerned with regard to information about them should
contact the custodian of the record, which typically is the state agency or other governmental
entity that collects and maintains the information.
Information which can be identified or associated with a particular person or persons that is
collected by government web sites through the Information Network of Arkansas is subject to
these principles and policies:
The information collected should only be that necessary to provide the information or services
sought by the requester, just as a person might provide such information when visiting a
governmental office in person. The information collected is subject to the same controls and
uses as that collected by governmental offices visited in person, again subject to the access and
confidentiality provisions of the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act, Ark Code Ann., §§ 25-
19-101 through 25-19-107, or to other applicable sections of the Arkansas Code. You do not
have to provide personal information to visit the network’s Web sites or download this
