Certification Regarding Confidentiality

This application and all documents submitted as part of it are public documents, except that the portions labeled or identified as confidential, proprietary, or trade secret will be withheld from disclosure to the extent required by the California Public Records Act (Chapter 3.5 (commencing with Section 6250) of Division 7 of Title 1 of the Government Code), Section 40062 of the Public Resources Code, and Article 4 of Chapter 1 of Division 7 of Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations (commencing with Section 17041). (See also 14 CCR Section 17989.6(b), (f)(3).) While the Public Records Act specifically exempts trade secrets from disclosure, there is no categorical exemption for information that is claimed to be “confidential” or “proprietary” but does not qualify as a trade secret. Unless some other express exemption applies, such information may be withheld from disclosure only where the need for confidentiality clearly outweighs the public interest in disclosure (see Government Code section 6255). “Trade secret” is defined at section 3426.1 of the Civil Code.
(1) you are aware that this application and all documents submitted as part of it are public records, except that the portions labeled or identified as confidential, proprietary, or trade secret information will be withheld from public disclosure to the extent required by law (see above);
(3) you have labeled or identified as “confidential,” “proprietary,” or “trade secret,” as applicable, all portions of this application (including all uploaded documentation) that you claim are exempt from disclosure and understand that all other portions will be disclosed in response to Public Records Act requests.
