A (US) government agency wants to create a database of data that is voluntarily submitted by members of the public.
The database has fields of data that get populated, some with personal data.
The data records are made freely available to the public either through a regular periodic data dump, or through FOI requests, although personal data is blanked out (some fields in their entirety, some fields partially)
To what extent can said agency decide it also wants "non-FOI fields" added to the database. What is allowed to be exempted from FOI requests other than personal data?
