Smart Traveler Enrollment Program and Privacy
The U.S. Department of State is committed to ensuring that any personal information received by our overseas U.S. Embassies and
consulates pursuant to the STEP process, whether in person or otherwise, is safeguarded against unauthorized disclosure. The data that
you provide the U.S. Department of State is subject to the provisions of the Privacy Act (5 USC 552a). This means that the
U.S. Department of State will not disclose the information you provide us in your STEP application to any third parties unless you
have given us written authorization to do so, or unless the disclosure is otherwise permitted by the Privacy Act.
