What does it mean when the document is restricted?

The Judicial Conference Privacy Policy protects the accessibility of private and sensitive information such as full Social Security numbers on any document filed after December 1, 2003. This type of information could be used for identity theft and access must be restricted to court users only. A redacted version of the document must be filed. However, CM/ECF documents filed before the policy was implemented may still contain private information.
