Abstract
Many Department of Homeland Security operations and projects collect a minimal amount of contact
information in order to distribute information and perform various other administrative tasks. Department
Headquarters has conducted this privacy impact assessment because contact lists contain personally
identifiable information.

Overview
The Department’s mission encompasses a wide variety of activities, including: emergency response,
law enforcement and intelligence, critical infrastructure protection, immigration processing, and research
and development of new technologies. In order to facilitate the accomplishment of these activities the
Department is in constant contact with the public as well as partners in other federal, state, local, and
international governmental organizations (hereinafter known as “partners”). Part of the Department’s
interaction with the public and its partners involves the maintenance of very limited contact information.
For example, a member of the public may request mail or email updates regarding emergency response
procedures, or partners working on cross-agency project may need to be able to contact their peers. These
types of situations require the exchange of minimal contact information in order to facilitate the Department’s
operations and service to the public.
Accordingly, DHS collects limited contact information such as name, email address, and mailing
address. Many times names and phone numbers are not required for mass distribution lists. Other times
name and business affiliation, in addition to basic contact information, will be collected in order to facilitate
a working relationship between partners.
General information intake involves the following:
An individual person will contact the Department via phone, paper form, or electronically (web or
email) for the purpose of being added to an information distribution list. In order to accommodate that
request, the person will provide basic contact information (depending on the circumstances) such as his or
her name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. DHS then places the contact information in a
spreadsheet, database or other type of information management tool. The Department then accesses the
information from its storage site and uses it to distribute information or contact users per the confines of
their interaction with DHS.
The authority to collect the information lies within each program or project’s authorizing
legislation.
Any program or project seeking to use this PIA as privacy documentation for its contact list must
meet the following requirements:
1. The contact information is limited to non-sensitive personally identifiable information. An example
of sensitive personally identifiable information is the social security number or date of birth.
2. The program or project must affirm that the document or database in which the contact information
is stored resides on a system that has received an Authority to Operate from the Chief Information
Security Officer.
3. The program or project must affirm that user access controls are in place governing who may view
or access the contact information. The contact information must not be universally accessible.
4. The contact information must only be used for the purpose for which it originally was collected, i.e.,

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 2

to contact individuals. Any additional sharing or use will require a separate PIA.
Should a program or project feel its contact list meets these requirements, the program or project is
required to complete a Privacy Threshold Analysis (PTA) detailing how it has met these requirements. Once
the PTA is approved, the program or project’s name and component will be added to Appendix B of this
document as a qualifying program or project.

Section 1.0 Characterization of the Information
The following questions are intended to define the scope of the information requested and/or
collected as well as reasons for its collection as part of the program, system, rule, or technology being
developed.

1.1

What information is collected, used, disseminated, or
maintained in the system?

Contact lists generally include name, business affiliation, mailing address, phone number, and email
address. Sensitive personally identifying information such as a social security number or date of birth are not
covered under this PIA. Such collections are required to conduct separate PIAs analyzing the risks associated
with such sensitive collections.

1.2

What are the sources of the information in the system?

Information is collected directly from individuals seeking information from the Department, or who
are working collaboratively with the Department on various projects. Individuals provide their information
voluntarily.

1.3

Why is the information being collected, used,
disseminated, or maintained?

The information is collected to facilitate the dissemination of information regarding the Department’s
operations and to facilitate the collaboration of partners who are working with the Department on various
projects.

1.4

How is the information collected?

Information may be collected electronically, by paper form, or by telephone.

1.5

How will the information be checked for accuracy?

Information is collected directly from individuals who volunteer information and is assumed to be
accurate. Depending on the context of the collection, the project or program may conduct a certain degree
of verification of information and follow up with an individual if information is found to be inaccurate.

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 3

1.6

What specific legal authorities, arrangements, and/or
agreements defined the collection of information?

Programs are at a minimum authorized to collect and maintain contact information by the Homeland
Security Act of 2002. Specific legal authorities for this type of collection are established based on each
component and each program’s particular mission. Nonetheless, some programs may operate under specific
rules, regulations, treaties, or other statutes pertinent to their field.

1.7

Privacy Impact Analysis: Given the amount and type of
data collected, discuss the privacy risks identified and how
they were mitigated.

The privacy risk presented by a basic contact list is that more information will be collected than is
necessary to distribute information. Contact information is limited to the information necessary to perform
the information distribution functions of the program or project. All information is collected with the
consent of the individual.

Section 2.0 Uses of the Information
The following questions are intended to delineate clearly the use of information and the accuracy of
the data being used.

2.1

Describe all the uses of information.

The Department uses the information to contact individuals.

2.2

What types of tools are used to analyze data and what type
of data may be produced?

Information is stored but is not manipulated in any way other than to, if necessary, populate address
fields for a mass email or paper mailing. Data may be input into databases or electronic spreadsheets and
accessed via the various data elements. For example, a query may be conducted to locate all contacts in a
certain state.

2.3

If the system uses commercial or publicly available data
please explain why and how it is used.

Contact lists are not created, populated with, or verified with data collected from commercial or
publicly available sources.

2.4

Privacy Impact Analysis: Describe any types of controls
that may be in place to ensure that information is handled
in accordance with the above described uses.

The risk presented by the use of contact information is that the information would be used in ways
outside the scope intended by the initial collection. Per the System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 4

70460, December 6, 2004) and the Privacy Act Statements given prior to collection, information collected
for contact lists is not to be used for any other purpose than to contact individuals who have requested
particular information. Additionally, all Department employees and contractors are trained on the
appropriate use of personally identifiable information.

Section 3.0 Retention
The following questions are intended to outline how long information will be retained after the
initial collection.

3.1

How long is information retained?

The Department retains the information no longer than is useful for carrying out the information
dissemination or collaboration purposes for which it was originally collected. Individuals may request their
information be deleted if he or she is no longer interested in receiving information from the Department,
after which point their information will not be retained. Absent a more restrictive retention period for a
particular contact list, information is retained per the requirements of General Records Schedule 14,
Informational Services Records (see Question 3.2).

3.2

Has the retention schedule been approved by the
component records officer and the National Archives and
Records Administration (NARA)?

Records are retained and disposed of in accordance with the National Archives and Records
Administration's General Records Schedule 14. Files may be retained for up to six years. For requests that
result in litigation, the files related to that litigation will be retained for three years after final court
adjudication.

3.3

Privacy Impact Analysis: Please discuss the risks
associated with the length of time data is retained and how
those risks are mitigated.

Information is retained for no more than six years after the last use. This minimizes retention and
security costs associated with maintaining contact lists. Additionally, any individual may opt out of any
distribution list at any time in order to have their information expunged from the list, thereby eliminating
any privacy risks posed by retention of their contact information.

Section 4.0 Internal Sharing and Disclosure
The following questions are intended to define the scope of sharing within the Department of
Homeland Security.

4.1

With which internal organization(s) is the information
shared, what information is shared and for what purpose?

Contact information may be shared with internal DHS components inasmuch as they are involved in
distributing information or collaborating with partners within the Department. However, DHS does not

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 5

share contact information for any purpose beyond which it was originally collected, i.e. contact information
given by individuals for purpose x will not be shared for use of purpose y at a later date.

4.2

How is the information transmitted or disclosed?

DHS may share information by electronic or paper means. If information is transmitted
electronically, proper security measures are taken, including encryption when necessary.

4.3

Privacy Impact Analysis: Considering the extent of internal
information sharing, discuss the privacy risks associated
with the sharing and how they were mitigated.

Inappropriate sharing is a risk inherent to any collection of personally identifiable information.
Department employees and contractors are trained on the appropriate use and sharing of personally
identifiable information. Further, any sharing of information must align with the purpose of the initial
collection as well as the System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460, December 6, 2004) and the
Privacy Act Statement provided at the time of collection.

Section 5.0 External Sharing and Disclosure
The following questions are intended to define the content, scope, and authority for information
sharing external to DHS which includes Federal, state and local government, and the private sector.

5.1

With which external organization(s) is the information
shared, what information is shared, and for what purpose?

Contact information may be shared with external governmental entities inasmuch as those entities
are involved in distributing information or collaborating with partners within the Department. Nonetheless,
contact information is not shared for any purpose beyond which it was originally collected, i.e. contact
information given by individuals for purpose x will not be shared for use of purpose y at a later date.

5.2

Is the sharing of personally identifiable information outside
the Department compatible with the original collection? If
so, is it covered by an appropriate routine use in a SORN?
If so, please describe. If not, please describe under what
legal mechanism the program or system is allowed to
share the personally identifiable information outside of
DHS.

Yes. Per the System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460, December 6, 2004) and the
various notices provided when information is collected, uses of contact information beyond the purposes for
which it was originally collected is not acceptable.

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 6

5.3

How is the information shared outside the Department and
what security measures safeguard its transmission?

Any information shared with organizations outside the Department is required to be appropriately
secured per Office of Management and Budget Memorandums 06-15, Safeguarding Personally Identifiable
Information, and 06-16, Protection of Sensitive Agency Information.

5.4

Privacy Impact Analysis: Given the external sharing,
explain the privacy risks identified and describe how they
were mitigated.

A risk is presented whenever the Department shares information it has initially collected from
agencies or individuals outside of the Department. If external sharing of information would exceed the
narrow purpose for which the contact information was collected, then the information is not permitted to
be shared. The System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460, December 6, 2004) outlines the
specific instances where contact information may be shared outside the Department. All Department
employees and contractors are trained on the appropriate use and sharing of information.

Section 6.0 Notice
The following questions are directed at notice to the individual of the scope of information collected,
the right to consent to uses of said information, and the right to decline to provide information.

6.1

Was notice provided to the individual prior to collection of
information?

Yes. This privacy impact assessment and the System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460,
December 6, 2004) provide notice regarding the collection of contact information by the Department. More
appropriately, though, each collection of contact information is immediately preceded by notice regarding
the scope and purpose of the contact information at the time of collection. These Privacy Act Statements
(these notices are required under 5 U.S.C. § 552a(e)(3)) at the moment of collection provide individuals
with notice of the voluntary nature of the collection and the authority to collect the information.

6.2

Do individuals have the opportunity and/or right to decline
to provide information?

Yes. Individuals are not required to provide contact information. Nevertheless, if contact
information is not provided individuals may not receive information from the Department or from partners
in the Department.

6.3

Do individuals have the right to consent to particular uses
of the information? If so, how does the individual exercise
the right?

DHS will use the information only for the purposes for which it was collected, i.e., contacting
individuals. Should an individual suspect information is being used beyond the given scope of the collection,

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 7

they are encouraged to write to the system managers listed in Appendix A. The system managers are also
listed in the System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460, December 6, 2004).

6.4

Privacy Impact Analysis: Describe how notice is provided
to individuals, and how the risks associated with
individuals being unaware of the collection are mitigated.

The privacy risk associated with notice in the collection of contact information is that the individual
is not aware of the purpose for which the information he or she submits may be used. This risk is primarily
mitigated by limiting the use of contact information to what is necessary for the purposes of contacting the
person according to his or her voluntary subscription or request. Additionally, the System of Records Notice
DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460, December 6, 2004) provides notice of the purpose of the collection, redress
procedures and the routine uses associated with the collection of contact information. Notice is always
provided prior to the collection of information, and consent is obtained by the individual prior to his
providing information.

Section 7.0 Access, Redress and Correction
The following questions are directed at an individual’s ability to ensure the accuracy of the
information collected about them.

7.1

What are the procedures that allow individuals to gain
access to their information?

Should individuals seek to remove their name from a contact list they should write or call the
program or project which initially collected the information. The program or project is in the best position
to remove, edit and/or provide access to the information held on an individual. Access requests can also be
directed to FOIA / PA D-3, The Privacy Office U.S. Department of Homeland Security, 245 Murray Drive
SW, Building 410, STOP-0550, Washington, DC 20528-0550.
Additionally, the System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460, December 6, 2004) details
access provisions along with the names of officials designated to field such requests within the Department.

7.2

What are the procedures for correcting inaccurate or
erroneous information?

The procedures are the same as those outlined in Question 7.1.The program or project that initially
collected the information is in the best position to correct any inaccurate information. Any inquires for
correction should be made to the initial collector.
Additionally, the System of Records Notice DHS/All 002 (69 FR 70460, December 6, 2004) details
access provisions along with the names of officials designated to field such requests within the Department.

7.3

How are individuals notified of the procedures for
correcting their information?

Individuals are notified at collection that they may correct their information at any time by the
procedures outlined above.

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 8

7.4

If no formal redress is provided, what alternatives are
available to the individual?

Appropriate redress is provided.

7.5

Privacy Impact Analysis: Please discuss the privacy risks
associated with the redress available to individuals and
how those risks are mitigated.

Individuals may correct their information at any time during which the Department possesses and
use their contact information. Any risks associated with correction of information are thoroughly mitigated
by the individual’s ability to opt out of the contact list or correct their information via the same process by
which they submitted information.

Section 8.0 Technical Access and Security
The following questions are intended to describe technical safeguards and security measures.

8.1

What procedures are in place to determine which users
may access the system and are they documented?

Departmental physical and information security policies dictate who may access Department
computers and filing systems. Specifically, DHS Management Directive 4300A outlines information
technology procedures for granting access to Department computers, which is where the majority of contact
information is stored. Access to contact information is strictly limited by access controls to those who require
it for completion of their official duties.

8.2

Will Department contractors have access to the system?

Yes, depending on the project or program. Many times contractors are tasked with information
distribution and other outreach tasks. Contractors are required to have the same level of security clearance
in order to access Department computers as all other DHS employees.

8.3

Describe what privacy training is provided to users either
generally or specifically relevant to the program or
system?

All Department employees and contractors are required to receive annual privacy and security
training to ensure their understanding of proper handling and securing of personally identifiable information
such as what is contained in contact lists.

8.4

Has Certification & Accreditation been completed for the
system or systems supporting the program?

Most simple contact lists are stored on spreadsheets or similar formats that do not qualify as an
information technology system requiring a Certification and Accreditation (C&A) pursuant to the review

Privacy Impact Assessment
Department of Homeland Security, Contact Lists
Page 9

processes established by the Chief Information Security Officer; however, these documents are stored on
secure Department networks which have completed C&As. Other contact lists which are part of more robust
functionalities reside on information technology systems that are required to receive a C&A.

8.5

What auditing measures and technical safeguards are in
place to prevent misuse of data?

All Department information systems are audited regularly to ensure appropriate use and access to
information. Specifically related to contact information, such lists residing on a local area network’s shared
drive are restricted by access controls to those who require it for completion of their official duties. Folders
within shared drives are privilege-protected.

8.6

Privacy Impact Analysis: Given the sensitivity and scope of
the information collected, as well as any information
sharing conducted on the system, what privacy risks were
identified and how do the security controls mitigate them?

The risk of unauthorized access exists with any information technology system or document. The
Department conducts thorough background checks on every employee and contractor. Access to the systems
and networks which store the contact information are protected pursuant to established Departmental
procedures (see 8.4).
All Department employees and contractors are trained on security procedures, specifically as they
relate to personally identifiable information.

Section 9.0 Technology
The following questions are directed at critically analyzing the selection process for any technologies
utilized by the system, including system hardware, RFID, biometrics and other technology.

9.1

What type of project is the program or system?

This assessment covers contact lists developed by a program or project involved in outreach efforts
or collaboration efforts within or outside of the Department.

9.2

What stage of development is the system in and what
project development lifecycle was used?

The program or projects detailed here are not necessarily involved in a specific lifecycle. Complete
information technology systems are in the operational phase and have completed C&A documentation.
Individual contact information lists do not have a development cycle.

Privacy Impact Assessment

9.3

Does the project employ technology which may raise
privacy concerns? If so please discuss their
implementation.

If a particular technology used in the collection or handling of information in connection with the
types of contact lists addressed in this PIA raises specific and/or heightened privacy concerns, the
implementation of the technology will be required to conduct a separate PIA.
