|Carroll County Redact Information|
To protect private personal information from being viewed on the internet, the Carroll County Registry of Deeds has redacted from the images viewed online, social security numbers, credit card numbers, and deposit account numbers found on recorded documents.
Effective March 1, 2007
RSA 478:4-b Records, Social Security Numbers and Financial Information.
Pursuant to RSA 478:4-b I. The preparer of a document shall not include an individual’s social security number, credit card number, or deposit account numbers in a document that is prepared and presented for recording in the office of the register of deeds. This paragraph shall not apply to state or federal tax liens, certified copies of death certificates, and other documents required by law to contain such information that are filed or recorded in the office of the register of deeds. For the purpose of this section, “preparer” shall mean the person who drafts the documents that are recorded with the register of deeds. Preparer shall not include any person who hires, requires, refers, pays or requests that the documents be drafted or recorded.
II. If a deed or instrument that includes an individual’s social security number, credit card number, or deposit account numbers, was filed with the register of deeds and is available on the Internet, the individual may request that the register of deeds redact such information from the Internet record. The register of deeds shall establish a procedure by which individuals may request such information be redacted from its files which are available on the Internet. Upon request, the information shall be redacted.
III. The register of deeds shall comply with an individual’s request to redact his or her social security number, credit card number, or deposit account numbers within 5 business days of the receipt of the request, or sooner, if ordered to do so by a court, for good cause shown.
