The Minnesota Government Data Practices Act (Minn. Stat. 13) gives every individual important rights when state agencies collect, create, receive, maintain, or disseminate data.
 
The Minnesota Board of Psychology (Board) Data Request Guide explains your rights to gain access to data maintained by the Board and how to make a data request for inspection or copy of public data.

Data Requests Guide

The Minnesota Government Data Practice Act presumes that all government data are public unless a state or federal law says the data are not public (See, Minn. Stat. § 13). According to Minnesota Statutes, section 13.02, "government data" means all information that is collected, created, received, maintained, or disseminated by a government entity regardless of its format (e.g. paper, email, voice recordings, etc.). This means that as a member of the public, you have the right to inspect all public data that is maintained by the Board, free of charge. You also have the right to obtain copies of public data, though the Board is allowed to charge for copies.
