§ 308. Personal privacy protection. 1. Any information reported to the
electronic facilitator by a government entity in connection with the
authorization of an electronic signature shall continue to be withheld
from public disclosure if such information was withheld from public
disclosure by such government entity. Electronic records shall be

officers law and the personal privacy protection law as set forth in
article six-A of the public officers law.

2. A person or an entity that acts as an authenticator of electronic
signatures shall not disclose to a third party any personal information
reported to it by the electronic signatory other than the information
