VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:08 Jun 02, 2009 Jkt 217001 Paperwork Reduction Act US–VISIT, through TSA and CBP, is requiring aliens to provide biometric data in certain limited circumstances described above. This requirement is considered an information collection requirement under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.). The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, has previously approved this information collection for use. The OMB control number for this collection is 1600–0006. The fingerprint collection covered by 1600–0006 is unchanged from previously published documentation. Privacy The US–VISIT air exit pilots use, collect, and share personally identifiable information (PII) in accordance with the US–VISIT/IDENT System of Records Notice (SORN), applicable privacy impact assessments (PIAs), privacy laws, regulations, guidance, agreements, and best practices to ensure that individual privacy is appropriately protected. The US–VISIT Privacy Office published a comprehensive PIA on May 27, 2009, that includes the assessment for the elements being tested in the air exit pilots that addresses the use, collection, and retention of PII associated with the pilots, identifies possible risks and proposes mitigating strategies. The PIA was reviewed and approved by the Director of US–VISIT and the DHS Chief Privacy Officer. The PIA was published on the DHS public Web site at http:// www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/privacy/ privacy_pia_usvisit_air_exit.pdf. The DHS Chief Privacy Officer, in conjunction with the US–VISIT Privacy Officer, exercises oversight of the US– VISIT program to ensure that the information maintained by US–VISIT is appropriately protected under privacy laws and guidance. DHS has established procedures to ensure the security, accuracy, relevance, timeliness, and completeness of all information maintained by US–VISIT. Information is safeguarded in terms of applicable rules and policies, including DHS policies for automated systems security and access. Only those persons with an official need to know information for the performance of their duties have access. Records of all individuals, including non-U.S. citizens, are protected in accordance with applicable privacy laws and regulations. Individuals, including non-U.S. citizens, who wish to contest or seek an amendment of their records may submit an inquiry via the DHS Traveler Redress PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP), a Webbased portal available at http:// www.dhs.gov/trip, or by writing to the US–VISIT program office and sending a fax to (202) 298–5201 or an e-mail to usvisitprivacy@dhs.gov. A mailed inquiry may be sent to the following address: Privacy Officer, US–VISIT, National Protection and Programs Directorate, Department of Homeland Security, Washington, DC 20528. However, because security concerns occasionally cause mail delays, the other communication methods are preferred and may result in quicker responses. The request should include the requester’s full name, current address, date of birth, and a detailed explanation of the amendment sought. More information on redress procedures can be found at http://www.dhs.gov/ xtrvlsec/programs/editorial 0436.shtm. If the matter cannot be resolved by the US–VISIT Privacy Officer, further appeal for resolution may be made to the DHS Chief Privacy Officer at the following address: Chief Privacy Officer, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Washington, DC 20528; telephone (202) 282–8000; or fax (202) 772–5036.
