POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR RETENTION AND DISPOSAL OF RECORDS: Records in this system are maintained and destroyed in accordance with applicable schedules and procedures issued or approved by NARA. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES ADMINISTRATIVE, TECHNICAL, AND PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS: Records are maintained in secure, restricted areas and are accessed only by personnel who have a need for the records in the performance of their duties and have been authorized to access them. Physical security protections include guarded and locked facilities requiring badges and passwords for access and other physical and technological safeguards (such as role-based access and strong passwords) to prevent unauthorized access. All visitors must be accompanied by authorized staff personnel at all times. Highly Classified or sensitive information is electronically transmitted on secure lines and in encrypted form to prevent interception and interpretation. Users accessing system components through mobile or portable computers or electronic devices such as laptop computers, multi-purpose cell phones, and personal digital assistants (PDAs) must comply with the DOJ’s remote access policy, which requires encryption. All DOJ employees receive a complete background investigation prior to being hired. Other persons with authorized access to system records receive comparable vetting. All personnel are required to undergo privacy and annual information security training, and are cautioned about divulging confidential information or any information contained in DOJ files. Failure to abide by this provision violates DOJ regulations and may violate certain civil and criminal statutes providing for penalties of fine or imprisonment or both. As a condition of employment, DOJ personnel also sign nondisclosure agreements which encompass, as appropriate, Classified and Unclassified information and remain in force even after DOJ employment. Employees who resign or retire are also cautioned about divulging information acquired in their DOJ capacity. RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES: The Attorney General has exempted this system of records from the notification, access, amendment, and contest procedures of the Privacy Act. These exemptions apply only to the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:39 Jun 02, 2017 Jkt 241001 extent that the information in this system is subject to exemption pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j) or (k). Where compliance would not appear to interfere with or adversely affect the purposes of the system, or the overall law enforcement/intelligence process, the applicable exemption (in whole or in part) may be waived by the DOJ in its sole discretion. A request for access to a record from this system of records must be submitted in writing and comply with 28 CFR part 16, and should be sent to the Office of Information Policy, 1425 New York Avenue NW., Suite 11050, Washington, DC 20530–0001. The envelope and letter should be clearly marked ‘‘Privacy Act Access Request.’’ The request should include a general description of the records sought, and must include the requester’s full name, current address, and date and place of birth. The request must be signed and dated and either notarized or submitted under penalty of perjury. While no specific form is required, requesters may obtain a form (Form DOJ–361) for use in certification of identity from the FOIA/ Privacy Act Mail Referral Unit, Justice Management Division, United States Department of Justice, 950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20530– 0001, or from the Department’s Web site at https://www.justice.gov/sites/default/ files/oip/legacy/2014/07/23/cert_ ind.pdf. CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES: The Attorney General has exempted this system of records from the notification, access, amendment, and contest procedures of the Privacy Act. These exemptions apply only to the extent that the information in this system is subject to exemption pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j) or (k). Where compliance would not appear to interfere with or adversely affect the purposes of the system, or the overall law enforcement/intelligence process, the applicable exemption (in whole or in part) may be waived by the DOJ in its sole discretion. Individuals desiring to contest or amend information maintained in the system should direct their requests according to the RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES listed above, stating clearly and concisely what information is being contested, the reasons for contesting it, and the proposed amendment to the information sought. The envelope and letter should be clearly marked ‘‘Privacy Act Amendment Request’’ and comply with 28 CFR 16.46. PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES: Same as the RECORD ACCESS above. PROCEDURES, EXEMPTIONS PROMULGATED FOR THE SYSTEM: The Attorney General has exempted this system of records from subsection (c)(3) and (4); (d)(1), (2), (3) and (4); (e)(1), (2), and (3); (e)(4)(G), (H) and (I); (e)(5) and (8); (f) and (g) of the Privacy Act. These exemptions apply only to the extent that information in the system is subject to exemption pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j) or (k). Rules are being promulgated in accordance with the requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553(b), (c), and (e) and have been published in this Federal Register. In addition, the DOJ will continue in effect and claim all exemptions claimed under 5 U.S.C. 552a(j) or (k) (or other applicable authority) by an originating agency from which the DOJ obtains records, where one or more reasons underlying an original exemption claim remain valid. Where compliance with an exempted provision does not appear to interfere with or adversely affect interests of the United States or other stakeholders, the DOJ in its sole discretion may waive an exemption in whole or in part; exercise of the discretionary waiver prerogative in a particular matter shall not create any entitlement to or expectation of waiver in that matter or any other matter. As a condition of discretionary waiver, the DOJ in its sole discretion may impose any restrictions deemed advisable by the DOJ (including, but not limited to, restrictions on the location, manner, or scope of notice, access or amendment).
