(1) The department may determine that a public record requested is exempt under the provisions of chapter 42.56 RCW. In addition, documents are exempt from disclosure if any "other statute" exempts or prohibits disclosure.
(2) Under RCW 42.56.210, the department may delete identifying details when it makes available or publishes any public record, in any cases when there is reason to believe that disclosure of such details would be an invasion of personal privacy protected by chapter 42.56 RCW.
(3) The department will not release personal or highly restricted information, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 2725 (4), from records pertaining to motor vehicle operator's licenses and permits, motor vehicle titles, motor vehicle registrations, and identification cards, unless the release both is considered a permissible use under 18 U.S.C. 2721 and is otherwise permitted by state law. In construing 18 U.S.C. 2721 (b)(2), the release of personal information for use in connection with matters of motor vehicle safety or driver safety shall be deemed to include the physical safety of persons as drivers, passengers or pedestrians and their motor vehicles or property.

(5) The department is prohibited by statute from disclosing lists of individuals for commercial purposes.
