|(a) Subject to subsection (b) of this section, records
regarding notarial acts performed are public information. On payment
of all fees, the notary public shall promptly provide a certified
copy of any entries in the notary public's records to any person requesting
the copy. The notary shall provide the certified copy no later than
10 business days from the date of receipt of the fees, unless the
notary cannot produce the certified copy within 10 business days from
the date of receipt of the fees, in which case the notary shall certify
that fact in writing to the person requesting the copy on or before
the 10th business day from the date of receipt of the fees, and set
a date and hour within a reasonable time when the certified copy will
be provided, and shall provide the information by that date and hour.
If the notary has inadvertently included personal identifiable information
in the record contrary to §87.50 of this title (relating to Prohibition
Against Recording Personal Information), the notary must redact that
personal information prior to release of the information.
(b) If any portion of the audio visual recording of
an online notarization includes biometric information or includes
an image of the identification card used to identify the principal,
that portion of the recording is confidential and shall not be released
without consent of the individual(s) whose identity is being established,
unless ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction or upon request
by the secretary of state.
