SAFEGUARDS: Records in this system are safeguarded in accordance with applicable rules and policies, including all applicable DHS automated systems security and access policies.

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL: The WLS will maintain a near real time mirror of the TSDB, and will not retain historical copies of the TSDB. The WLS will be synchronized with the TSDB. When the FBI/TSC adds, modifies, or deletes data from the TSDB, the WLS will duplicate these functions almost simultaneously, and that information will then be passed to DHS and its component systems. The DHS component that is screening individuals will maintain, separate from the WLS, a record of a match or possible match with the TSDB and DHS will retain this information in accordance with the DHS component specific SORNs identified in this notice.

Thus, individuals seeking notification of and access to any record contained in this system of records, or seeking to contest its content, may submit a request in writing to the Headquarters or component FOIA Officer, whose contact information can be found at http://www.dhs.gov/foia under ‘‘contacts.’’ If an individual believes more than one component maintains Privacy Act records concerning him or her the individual may submit the request to the Chief Privacy Officer and Chief Freedom of VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:17 Jul 05, 2011 Jkt 223001 Information Act Officer, Department of Homeland Security, 245 Murray Drive, SW., Building 410, STOP–0655, Washington, DC 20528. When seeking records about yourself from this system of records or any other Departmental system of records your request must conform with the Privacy Act regulations set forth in 6 CFR Part 5. You must first verify your identity, meaning that you must provide your full name, current address, and date and place of birth. You must sign your request, and your signature must either be notarized or submitted under 28 U.S.C. 1746, a law that permits statements to be made under penalty of perjury, as a substitute for notarization. In addition you should provide the following: • An explanation of why you believe the Department would have information on you; • Identify which component(s) of the Department you believe may have the information about you; • Specify when you believe the records would have been created; • Provide any other information that will help the FOIA staff determine which DHS component agency may have responsive records; and • If your request is seeking records pertaining to another living individual, you must include a statement from that individual certifying his/her agreement for you to access his/her records. Without this bulleted information the component(s) may not be able to conduct an effective search, and your request may be denied due to lack of specificity or lack of compliance with applicable regulations. In addition, if individuals are uncertain what agency handles the information, they may seek redress through the DHS Traveler Inquiry Redress Program (TRIP) (January 18, 2007, 72 FR 2294).
