This is how we will handle information you provide during
your visit to our website.
Information you must provide.
In visiting our site, you are required to provide information (a) to register a
domain name, (b) to update information about a domain name previously
registered, or (c) to submit questions about our service. To register a domain
name, you are required to provide the name you are registering; your name and
postal address (or those of the person for whom you are registering the name);
technical information about the computer with which the domain name will be
associated; and the name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and (where
available) fax telephone numbers for the technical, administrative, billing, and
zone contacts for the domain name. Once the domain name has been registered,
your registration agreement requires you to correct and update this data
promptly. If you submit a question about our service, you will be asked to
provide your name[, telephone number,] and e-mail address.
Why you must provide the information.
The information you provide when registering a domain name (or correcting or
updating registration information) is required to allow the Internet to
associate the domain name with your computer, to allow us to properly handle
your account (including notifying you at renewal time), and to permit others
operating or using the Internet to easily contact you to resolve issues that
arise in connection with the domain name. It will also be stored under a data
escrow program to keep the domain name operating in the event we leave the
domain-name registration business. When you submit a question to our website,
contact information is needed so that we can respond.
Who will receive the information.
We will provide information you submit in registering a domain name or updating
related information to our own employees and consultants, to the administrator
of the registry for the top-level domain in which you are registering (currently
Network Solutions, Inc. for .com, .net, and .org), to operators and users of the
Internet making Whois queries concerning your domain-name registration, to the
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) (which provides
technical coordination for the Internet), and to escrow agents, auditors, Whois
service providers, and replacement registrars that ICANN may designate.
In addition, unless you instruct us otherwise we may
periodically provide your registration information to other companies for
inclusion in value-added Internet database and search services. [The wording
here will depend on registrar's opt-out policy; see subsection
18.104.22.168 of the ICANN Registrar Accreditation Agreement.]

service may be given to our employees and consultants and, upon its request, to
