To Whom It May Concern:

As provided by the Privacy Act of 1974 (5USC 552a) and the 45 CFR part 613, I hereby make the following request.

As provided under 45 CFR part 613.2, please inform me of the existence of records pertaining to me, Karl Auerbach, contained within the following "system of records":

The "domain name database" (including the "whois" database and all ancillary record systems used for fee collection) operated by National Science Foundation through its contractor, Network Solutions, Incorporated, under cooperative agreement No. NCR-9218742.

The National Science Foundation has apparently failed to publish notice of this system of records in the Federal Register. However, it is my belief that this system of records is in daily use and that information may be obtained from that system by the name of an individual as well as by "handles" assigned to individuals.

Please let me know if you need any further information to facilitate the processing of this request.
