Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. §552a(e)(3), this Privacy Act Statement serves to inform you of the following concerning the collection of information on the Decal and Transponder Online Procurement System (DTOPS) website for the payment of user fees for commercial vehicles, private aircraft and private vessels.
AUTHORITY: Collection of the information solicited on this form is authorized by the following:
PURPOSE: The purpose for soliciting this information is to allow the purchase of border-crossing transponders or decals for commercial vehicles, private vessels and aircrafts, and to allow the payment of the commercial vehicle single crossing user fee via the secure DTOPS website. The DTOPS website provides a convenient method to pay for either a border-crossing transponder or decal or a single crossing user fee. Paying online via DTOPS improves wait times by allowing carriers to pay the user fee online prior to arriving at the border.
ROUTINE USES: If you choose to provide the information solicited on this form, CBP will use the information to provide you with a DTOPS user account. The personally identifiable information (PII) that you provide will not be shared with other government agencies unless they are a Participating Government Agency (PGA), pursuant to an International Trade Data System (ITDS) Memorandum of Understanding, consistent with the receiving agency’s legal authority to collect information pertaining to and/or regulate transactions in international trade. Additionally, CBP may share the information with law enforcement of other government agencies as necessary to respond to potential or actual threats of terrorism, or otherwise required by law as a “routine use” pursuant to its published Privacy Act system of records notice (DHS/CBP-002 - Global Enrollment System SORN, January 16, 2013, 78 FR 3441).
DISCLOSURE: Providing this information is required for those commercial truck, private vessel or aircraft carriers who voluntarily choose to pay online the annual transponder or decal, or the single-crossing user fee. Carriers that choose not to purchase an annual transponder or decal or to pay the user fee online will continue to have the option to pay the user fee upon arriving at the port. By submitting your PII in applying for a DTOPS account, you are giving CBP permission to use the information for a specific, stated purpose, i.e., to obtain the benefits of creating a DTOPS user account.
You will be returned to the DTOPS website after payment completion.
