SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. The Privacy Act Under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, a ‘‘system of records’’ is defined as any group of records under the control of a federal government agency from which information about individuals is retrieved by name or other personal identifier. The Privacy Act establishes the means by which government agencies collect, maintain, and use information that is personally identifiable in a government system of records. Each government agency is required to publish a notice in the Federal Register of a system of records in which the agency identifies and describes each system of records it maintains, the reasons why the agency uses the personally identifying information therein, the routine uses for which the agency will disclose such information outside the agency, and how individuals may exercise their rights under the Privacy Act to determine if the system contains information about them, among other things. II. NFA Applications Suite System (Exempt) The Commission proposes to revise a system of records notice (SORN), CFTC– 12, ‘‘Fitness Investigations,’’ and rename the notice as ‘‘National Futures Association (NFA) Applications Suite System (Exempted).’’ The notice revises the description of the system and enhancements to more broadly cover the activities of NFA on behalf of the Commission by delegated authority and also covers new data collections for swap dealers, major swap participants and retail foreign exchange dealers as required by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act and recent Commission rules. The revised notice also exempts from certain Privacy Act requirements those records in this system that refer, relate to or are from third-party sources related to fitness or other investigations of registrants or applicants for registration. Though subject to change with future information technology upgrades, the notice covers activities that are currently automated by the following NFA databases and applications: E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1
