Start Preamble

AGENCY:

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION:

Notice to add a new Privacy Act system of records and modify an existing system of records.

SUMMARY:

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) proposes to add a system of records notice to its existing inventory of systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended. In this notice, NARA publishes NARA 37—Order Online! (NARA Online Ordering System), for comment. NARA also proposes to expand coverage in one of its existing systems, NARA 25—Order Fulfillment and Accounting System Records (OFAS), to include transmittal data received from NARA Online! (NARA Online Ordering System). Last, an obsolete reference is deleted from Appendix B, which lists NARA's system managers.

EFFECTIVE DATES:

The establishment of the new system NARA 37 and changes to the existing system NARA 25 will become effective without further notice on November 20, 2003, unless comments received on or before that date cause a contrary decision. If changes are made based on NARA's review of comments received, a new final notice will be published.

ADDRESSES:

Send comments to the Privacy Act Officer, Office of General Counsel (NGC), Room 3110, National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, 20740-6001. You may fax your comments to 301-837-0293. You may also comment via the Internet to comments@nara.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

NARA last published a comprehensive set of Privacy Act system notices in the Federal Register on April 2, 2002 (67 FR 15592). NARA published two additional systems; NARA 35 and NARA 36, in the Federal Register on October 17, 2002 (67 FR 64142).

NARA is proposing to add NARA 37—Order Online! (NARA Online Ordering System) to its existing inventory of systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended. NARA 37 covers persons who order NARA products (e.g. reproductions of NARA archival materials) online. NARA is also proposing to expand coverage in one of its existing systems, NARA 25—Order Fulfillment and Accounting System Records (OFAS), to include transmittal data received from NARA Online!

The notice for each of the two systems of records states the following:

  • Name and the location of the record system;
  • Authority for and manner of its operation;
  • Categories of individuals that it covers;
  • Types of records that it contains;
  • Sources of information in these records;
  • Proposed “routine uses” of each system of records; and
  • Business address of the NARA official who will inform interested persons of the procedures they must follow to gain access to and correct records pertaining to themselves.

Last, a reference to an obsolete NARA unit is deleted from Appendix B, which lists NARA's systems managers. Appendix A, which identifies routine uses of NARA's systems of records, remains unchanged.

One of the purposes of the Privacy Act, as stated in section 2(b)(4) of the Act, is to provide certain safeguards for an individual against an invasion of personal privacy by requiring Federal agencies to disseminate any record of identifiable personal information in a manner that assures that such action is for a necessary and lawful purpose, that information is current and accurate for its intended use, and that adequate safeguards are provided to prevent misuse of such information. NARA intends to follow these principles in transferring information to another agency or individual as a “routine use”, including assurance that the information is relevant for the purposes for which it is transferred.

Accordingly, we are publishing the proposed new system of records notice NARA 37 and the revised system of records notice NARA 25 as follows:

NARA 37

SYSTEM NAME:

Order Online! (NARA Online Ordering System).

SYSTEM LOCATION:

Order Online! is located in the data center at the National Archives and Records Administration in College Park, MD.Start Printed Page 60122

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:

Individuals covered by this system include researchers who order reproductions of NARA archival materials at http://www.archives.gov.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

Order Online records may include: user login data (i.e., user ID and password; User Profile Data (e.g., name, address, phone number); credit card payment data (e.g., card type, card number, expiration date); reproduction order form data (e.g., detailed information describing the requested archival record); and transaction data (e.g., system-generated order identification information such as order number, order date, order type).

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:

44 U.S.C. 2116(c), 2307 and 3504.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:

Records maintained in the system are used only for order entry, order validation, order processing, payment processing, and order fulfillment. The public may use the Order Online! system to complete and submit a reproduction order to NARA. Each night, Order Online! submissions are sent to NARA's Order Fulfillment and Accounting System (OFAS-NARA 25) via an automated XML (extensible markup language) interface that operates within NARA's secure internal network.

Order Online! maintains profile data (e.g., name, address, phone number) for researchers who initiate orders of reproductions. The profile data is used to automatically complete the payment and/or shipping address sections of the order form so that customers do not have to manually re-enter the information. Neither NARA nor its agents use Order Online! customer profile data for other purposes.

The routine use statements A, E, and F, described in Appendix A apply to this system of records. Appendix A was published in the Federal Register on April 2, 2002 (67 FR 15592).

SAFEGUARDS:
