The individual may be accompanied for the purpose by a person of his or her choosing. Upon request of the individual to whom the record pertains, all information in the accounting of disclosures will be made available. If, for any unforeseen circumstances, or in an unusual situation when it may be necessary to deny a person access, the individual will be advised of the reasons therefor, and his or her right to judicial review under 5 U.S.C. 552a(f)(4).
