COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION


Privacy Act of 1974; Systems of Records; Annual Publication

AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

ACTION: Publication of annual notice of the existence and character of
each system of records that the Commodity Futures Trading Commission
(``Commission'') maintains which contains information about
individuals.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The purpose of this notice is to announce the existence and
character of the systems of records of the Commodity Futures Trading
Commission as required by the Privacy Act of 1974, Pub. L. 93-579, 5
U.S.C. 552a.
    Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(f), the Commission, on August 8, 1975,
promulgated rules relating to records maintained by the Commission
concerning individuals (40 FR 41056). The rules as amended (17 CFR part
146) address an individual's rights to know what information the
Commission has in its files concerning the individual; to have access
to those records; to petition the Commission to have inaccurate or
incomplete records amended or corrected; and not to have personal
information disseminated to unauthorized persons. The full text of the
Commission's rules implementing the Privacy Act can be found in 17 CFR
part 146.

[[Page 33830]]

    Under 17 CFR 146.11(a), the Commission is required to publish
annually a notice of the existence and character of each system of
records it maintains which contains information about individuals. This
notice implements this requirement and, when read together with the
Commission's rules, will provide individuals with the information that
they need to exercise fully their rights under the Privacy Act.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Edward W. Colbert, Assistant Secretary
to the Commission, Freedom of Information Act, Privacy Act and
Government in the Sunshine Act Compliance Office, (202) 418-5105, or
Stacy Dean Yochum, Counsel to the Executive Director, (202) 418-5157,
Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st
Street, NW, Washington, DC 20581.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Content of Systems Notices

    Each of the notices contains the following information:
    1. The name of the system;
    2. The location of the system;
    3. The categories of individuals on whom records are maintained in
the system;
    4. The categories of records maintained in the system;
    5. The authority for maintaining the system;
    6. The routine uses of records maintained in the system; including
the categories of users and the purposes of such uses;
    7. The policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing,
retaining, and disposing of records in the system;
    8. The title and business address of the system manager, the agency
official who is responsible for the system of records;
    9. The agency procedures by which an individual can find out
whether the system of records contains a record pertaining to him, how
he may gain access to any record pertaining to him contained in the
system of records, and how he can contest the content of the records;
and
    10. The categories of sources of records in the system.
    The following four systems of records have been exempted, as set
forth in the descriptions of these systems of records, from certain
requirements of the Privacy Act, as authorized under 5 U.S.C. 552a(k):
    CFTC-9  Confidential information obtained during employee
background investigations.
    CFTC-10  Investigatory materials compiled for law enforcement
purposes.
    CFTC-31  Information pertaining to individuals discussed as closed
Commission meetings.
    CFTC-32  Investigatory materials compiled by the Office of the
Inspector General.

The Location of Systems of Records

    The Commission offices are in the following locations:
    <bullet> Three Lafayette Centre, 1155 21st Street, NW., Washington,
DC 20581, Telephone: (202) 418-5000;
    <bullet> 300 Riverside Plaza, Suite 1600 North, Chicago, Illinois
60606, Telephone: (312) 353-5990;
    <bullet> 4900 Main Street, Suite 721, Kansas City, Missouri 64112,
Telephone: (816) 931-7600;
    <bullet> One World Trade Center, Suite 3747, New York, New York
10048, Telephone: (212) 466-2061;
    <bullet> Murdock Plaza, 10900 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 400, Los
Angeles, California 90024, Telephone: (310) 235-6783; and
    <bullet> 510 Grain Exchange Building, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55415,
Telephone: (612) 370-3255.
    Where a system of records is stored in multiple locations, the
notice merely identifies the offices and refers to this introductory
section for each address. The Commission's headquarters office is in
Washington, DC, and is referred to in the systems notice as the
``principal office.'' The Commission maintains regional offices in
Chicago and New York and smaller offices in Kansas City, Minneapolis
and Los Angeles. For purposes of this notice, the regional offices and
smaller offices are referred to collectively as the ``regional
offices,'' ``All CFTC offices'' means the headquarters office, the
regional offices and the smaller offices.
    In many cases, records within a system are not available at each of
the offices listed in the system notice. For example, case files are
basically maintained in the office where the investigation is
conducted, but certain information may be maintained in other offices
as well. It is the Commission's responsibility, unless otherwise
specified in the system notice, to determine where the particular
records being sought are located. However, if the individual seeking
the records in fact knows the location, it would be helpful to the
Commission if the requester would indicate that location.

Scope and Content of Systems of Records

    The Privacy Act applies to personal information about individuals.
Personal information subject to the provisions of the Privacy Act may
sometimes be found in a system of records that might appear to relate
solely to commercial matters. For example, the system of records
concerning registration of the various categories of registrants (CFTC-
20) contains primarily business information. However, a firm's
application for registration contains a few items of personal
information concerning key personnel. Since the capability exists
through the National Futures Association's computer system to retrieve
information from this system of records not only by use of the name of
the firm but also by the use of the name of these individuals, this
information is within the purview of the Privacy Act. See the
definition of system of records in the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552(a)(5),
and Sec. 146.2(g) of the commission's Privacy Act rules, 17 CFR
146.2(g).
    Such a capability would generally not exist, however, in a
Commission staff investigation of the activities of a firm unless an
individual is registered as an FCM, IB, CTA or CPO. That is, if the
investigation was opened under the name of the FCM, information would
be retrievable only under that name. Accordingly, information about
principals of a firm under investigation that might be developed during
the investigation would generally not be retrievable by the name of the
individual, and the provisions of the Privacy Act would not apply.

General Statement of Routine Uses

    A principal purpose of the Privacy Act is to restrict the
unauthorized dissemination of personal information concerning an
individual. In this connection, the Privacy Act and the Commission's
rules prohibit dissemination except for specific purposes. Individuals
should refer to the full text of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(b), and
to the Commission's rules, 17 CFR part 146, for a complete list of
authorized disclosures. Only those arising most frequently have been
mentioned herein.
    The Privacy Act and the Commission's rules specifically provide
that disclosure may be made with the written consent of the individual
to whom the record pertains. Disclosure may also be made to those
officers and employees of the Commission who need the record in the
performance of their duties. In addition, disclosures are authorized if
they are made pursuant to the terms of the Freedom of Information Act,
5 U.S.C. 552.
    In addition, the Privacy Act and the Commission's rules permit
disclosure of individual records if it is for a ``routine use,'' which
is defined as a use of a record that is compatible with the

[[Page 33831]]

purpose for which it was collected. Unless otherwise indicated, the
following routine uses of Commission records are applicable to all CFTC
systems. To avoid unnecessary repetition of these routine uses, where
they are generally applicable, the system notice refers the reader to
the ``General State of Routine Uses.'' The notice for each system of
records lists any specific routine uses that are applicable to that
system.
    1. The information may be used by the Commission in any
administrative proceeding before the Commission, in any injunctive
action authorized under the Commodity Exchange Act or in any other
action or proceeding in which the Commission or its staff participates
as a party or the Commission participates as amicus curiae.
    2. The information may be given to the Justice Department, the
Securities and Exchange Commission, the United States Postal Service,
the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Agriculture, the Office
of Personnel Management, and to other Federal, state or local law
enforcement or regulatory agencies for use in meeting responsibilities
assigned to them under the law, or made available to any member of
Congress who is acting in his capacity as a member of Congress.
    3. The information may be given to any board of trade designated as
a contract market by the Commission if the Commission has reason to
believe this will assist the contract market in carrying out its
responsibilities under the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 1, et seq.,
and to any national securities exchange or national securities
association registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, to
assist those organizations in carrying out their self-regulatory
responsibilities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1935, 15 U.S.C.
78a, et seq.
    4. At the discretion of the Commission staff, the information may
be given or shown to anyone during the course of a Commission
investigation if the staff has reason to believe that the person to
whom it is disclosed may have further information about the matters
discussed therein and those matters appear relevant to the subject of
the investigation.
    5. The information may be included in a public report issued by the
Commission following an investigation, to the extent that this is
authorized under Section 8 of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 12.
Section 8 authorizes publication of such reports but contains
restrictions on the publication of certain types of sensitive business
developed during an investigation. In certain contexts, some of this
information might be considered personal in nature.
    6. The information may be disclosed to a Federal agency in response
to its request in connection with the hiring or retention of an
employee, the issuance of a security clearance, the reporting of an
investigation of an employee, the letting of a contract or the issuance
of a license, or a grant or other benefit by the requesting agency, to
the extent that the information may be relevant to the requesting
agency's decision on the matter.
    7. The information may be disclosed to a prospective employer in
response to its request in connection with the hiring or retention of
an employees, to the extent that the information is believed to be
relevant to the prospective employer's decision in the matter.
    8. The information may be disclosed to any person, pursuant to
Section 12(a) of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 16(a), when
disclosure will further the policies of the Act or of other provisions
of law. Section 12(a) authorizes the Commission to cooperate with
various other government authorities or with ``any person.''
