Part X applies to personal information held by child and family service providers. If a record contains no information about an identifiable individual, Part X does not apply.
The personal information must relate to a service provided or funded under the CYFSA or a CYFSA licence. If you offer services unrelated to the CYFSA, Part X would not apply to those records. These access and privacy rules also do not apply to records related to finalized adoptions.
