1. A first communication apparatus, comprising:a storage configured to store at least one of data associated with an electronic address book or data associated with an electronic calendar; and
a control circuit configured to:
establish, through an information processing apparatus, a first communication session with a second communication apparatus, wherein
the second communication apparatus is associated with at least one first connection right, and
the first communication apparatus is different from the information processing apparatus;
receive first information that identifies at least one second connection right from the information processing apparatus;
establish, through the information processing apparatus, a second communication session associated with the at least one second connection right that differs from the at least one first connection right;
control transmission, to the information processing apparatus, of a request to synchronize at least a specific portion of the stored data with the second communication apparatus, wherein
the request indicates the at least the specific portion of the stored data, and
the request comprises second information that identifies the second communication apparatus;
receive, through the information processing apparatus, a response to the transmitted request from the second communication apparatus, wherein
the response is generated by the second communication apparatus, and
the response comprises response data corresponding to the at least the specific portion of the stored data;
synchronize the at least the specific portion of the stored data with the response data; and
