Here is how you would file a complaint. I will give you the exact statement of the law:7.12: Complaints Alleging Improper Access or Dissemination of Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Information An individual may file a complaint with DCJIS upon the belief that an agency improperly obtained information, or attempted to obtain CJIS information regarding the individual. (a) DCJIS shall review the complaint. If it contains a sufficient statement describing the allegation, DCJIS staff shall conduct an audit of the CJIS system to determine if a specific CJA or CJIS authorized user accessed the individual's information through CJIS during the time period in question. If the audit confirms such access then DCJIS staff may contact the agency head to request an internal investigation (b) If requested by the DCJIS, the agency head shall conduct an investigation into the alleged misuse according to the rules, regulations, and policies in place at the agency. At the conclusion of the investigation, the agency head shall provide DCJIS with a written summary of the investigation's findings. In addition, if the agency head substantiates the allegation(s), the written summary shall provide details of the specific actions taken to correct the misuse as well as details of the sanctions imposed on the subject(s) of the investigation, if any. (c) DCJIS may impose additional penalties as outlined in 803 CMR 7.00. 7.13: Penalties for Improperly Access or Dissemination (1) A CJIS user may be subject to federal and state civil and criminal penalties for improper access or dissemination of information obtained from or through CJIS pursuant to M.G.L. c. 6, §§ 167A (d), 168 and 178 and 28 CFR 20: Criminal Justice Information Systems. Give me a short time to see where you would complain. This is all for CORI in Massachusetts.

According to the New Hampshire Department of Public Safety all criminal record informination "in New Hampshire is confidential, and is disseminated under the authority of Revised Statute Annotated (RSA) 106-B: 14, and Administrative Rule Saf-C 5700. For non-criminal justice purposes, no CHRI is released without the permission and knowledge of the individual of whom the request is being made. Anyone can request their own New Hampshire CHRI, or with permission of the record owner, can request the New Hampshire CHRI of another. There are a few circumstances where either a New Hampshire, or both a New Hampshire and FBI CHRI are statutorily required. Examples would be for employment, licensing, housing, and healthcare."
