  • Records invading confidentiality;
  • Records collected along with the detection or conviction of a crime where it was not in the public interest to publicize that information;
  • Test questions, rating keys, and other assessment details for the administration of permits, jobs, or university examinations;
  • Privileged interactions, such as lawyer-client contact, marriage conversations, priest confessions, physician/therapist communications with their clients;
  • records with legitimate reasons to believe that transparency leads to a safety risk
