    Unless you work for a federal agency then no, although it is very unprofessional.

    What "privacy act"? There is no one privacy act. ANY question on law needs to include your general locale as laws vary by area. Or we need to know the specific act you refer to.

    But this does not appear to be illegal, though it is unprofessional.
