that: (1) the general authority for the collection of this information is 35 U.S.C. 2(b)(2); (2) furnishing of the information solicited 
is voluntary; and (3) the principal purpose for which the information is used by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is to 
process and/or examine your submission related to a patent application or patent. If you do not furnish the requested 
information, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office may not be able to process and/or examine your submission, which may 
result in termination of proceedings or abandonment of the application or expiration of the patent.

1 . The information on this form will be treated confidentially to the extent allowed under the Freedom of Information Act 
(5 U.S.C. 552) and the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a). Records from this system of records may be disclosed to the 
Department of Justice to determine whether the Freedom of Information Act requires disclosure of these record s. 

2. A record from this system of records may be disclosed, as a routine use, in the course of presenting evidence to a 
court, magistrate, or administrative tribunal, including disclosures to opposing counsel in the course of settlement 
negotiations. 

3. A record in this system of records may be disclosed, as a routine use, to a Member of Congress submitting a 
request involving an individual, to whom the record pertains, when the individual has requested assistance from the 
Member with respect to the subject matter of the record. 

4. A record in this system of records may be disclosed, as a routine use, to a contractor of the Agency having need for 
the information in order to perform a contract. Recipients of information shall be required to comply with the 
requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(m).
