However, DHS/CBP will consider individual requests to determine whether or not information may be released. 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’s Freedom of Information Act 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 FOIA Officer, Department of Homeland Security, 245 Murray Drive, SW., Building 410, STOP–0655, Washington, DC 20528. When individuals seek records about themselves from this system of records or any other Departmental system of records, their requests must conform with the Privacy Act regulations set forth in 6 CFR part 5. They must first verify their identities, meaning that they must provide their full names, current addresses, and dates and places of birth. They must sign their requests, and each of their signatures must either be notarized or be submitted under 28 U.S.C. 1746, a law that permits statements to be made under penalty of perjury as a substitute for notarization. While no specific form is required, they may obtain forms for this purpose from the Chief Privacy Officer and Chief FOIA Officer, http://www.dhs.gov/foia or 1–866–431–0486. In addition, they should: • Explain why the Department would have information about them; • Identify which component(s) of the Department would have the information; • Specify when the records would have been created; and • Provide any other information that will help the FOIA staff determine which DHS component agency may have responsive records. If the individuals’ requests seek records pertaining to another living person, they must include a statement VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:04 Sep 01, 2015 Jkt 235001 from that individual certifying his/her agreement for them to have access to his/her records. Without the above information the component(s) may not be able to conduct an effective search and a request may be denied due to lack of specificity or lack of compliance with applicable regulations. RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES: See ‘‘Notification procedure’’ above. CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES: See ‘‘Notification procedure’’ above. CBP obtains records from individuals who participate in exporting goods from the United States and other federal agencies, as required to administer the export laws of the United States. EXEMPTIONS CLAIMED FOR THE SYSTEM: DHS/CBP is not requesting an exemption with respect to information maintained in the system as it relates to data submitted by or on behalf of an individual. Information in the system may be shared pursuant to the exceptions under the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a(b)) and the above routine uses. The Privacy Act requires DHS to maintain an accounting of the disclosures made pursuant to all routines uses. Disclosing the fact that a law enforcement or intelligence agency has sought particular records may affect ongoing law enforcement activity. Therefore, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2), DHS will claim exemption from sections (c)(3), (e)(8), and (g)(1) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, as is necessary and appropriate to protect this information. In addition, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2), DHS will claim exemption from section (c)(3) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, as is necessary and appropriate to protect this information.
