Both of these entries are summarized respectively.

This document is published to obtain comments from the public and affected agencies."; and (2) "In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (Privacy Act), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) proposes to update and reissue the DHS system of records titled, 'DHS/ U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)--009 Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) System of Records.' This system of records allows DHS/CBP to collect and maintain records on nonimmigrant aliens seeking to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program and other persons, including U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents, whose names are provided to DHS as part of a nonimmigrant alien's ESTA application. The system is used to determine whether an applicant is eligible to travel to and enter the United States under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) by vetting his or her ESTA application information against selected security and law enforcement databases at DHS, including but not limited to TECS (not an acronym) and the Automated Targeting System (ATS). In addition, ATS retains a copy of ESTA application data to identify ESTA applicants who may pose a security risk to the United States."
