Confidentiality of Information:
Information collected for the sale of department hunting, fishing, trapping licenses and permits is not public information under Vermont law 1 VSA § 317. The department does not sell or give names and addresses collected for the sale of licenses and permits to third parties.
Periodically, Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department (or its designated agent(s)) may use contact information from license-holders to conduct surveys and research, or send information about license sales and hunting and fishing programs involving Vermont fish and wildlife. The information obtained from these surveys will provide public input on fish and wildlife management actions and human interactions for the management of Vermont’s fish and wildlife resources.
Department license agents cannot use information in the POS database for any purpose other than those required to sell Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department Sporting Licenses.
