In addition, the individual should: • Explain why he or she believes the Department would have information being requested; • Identify which component(s) of the Department he or she believes may have the information; • Specify when the individual believe 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 an individual’s request is seeking records pertaining to another living individual, the first individual must include a statement from that individual certifying his or her agreement for the first individual to access to his/her records. Without the above information, the component(s) may not be able to conduct an effective search, and the individual’s request may be denied due to lack of specificity or lack of compliance with applicable regulations. CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES: For records covered by the Privacy Act of 1974 or covered JRA records, see ‘‘Record Access Procedures’’ above. For records not covered by the Privacy Act of 1974 or JRA, individuals may submit an inquiry to the DHS Traveler Redress Inquiry Program (DHS TRIP) at https:// www.dhs.gov/dhs-trip or the CBP INFO CENTER at www.help.cbp.gov or (877) 227–5511 (international callers may use (202) 325–8000 and TTY users may dial (866) 880–6582). NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES: data submitted by or on behalf of a person who travels to visit the United States and crosses the border, nor shall an exemption be asserted with respect to the resulting determination (authorized to travel, pending, or not authorized to travel). However, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(j)(2), DHS/CBP plans to exempt such information in this system from sections (c)(3), (e)(8), and (g) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, as is necessary and appropriate to protect this information. Further, DHS will claim exemption from sec. (c)(3) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(2) as is necessary and appropriate to protect this information. CBP will not disclose the fact that a law enforcement or intelligence agency has sought particular records because it may affect ongoing law enforcement activities. When this system receives a record from another system exempted in that source system under 5 U.S.C. 552a(j) or (k), DHS will claim the same exemptions for those records that are claimed for the original primary systems of records from which they originated and claims any additional exemptions set forth here. For instance, as part of the vetting process, this system may incorporate records from CBP’s ATS, and all of the exemptions for CBP’s ATS SORN, described and referenced herein, carry forward and will be claimed by DHS/CBP.
