The GNSO's WHOIS Task Force #2 is chartered with reviewing the current ICANN whois policy regarding the collection, disclosure and transmittal of data obtained when a domain name is registered, and how consent of the registrant to these policies is obtained.
In general, these data elements may include: domain name registrant's name, address, phone and fax number, e-mail address.
The same information is collected for administrative and technical contacts. Registrant, administrative contact, technical contact, and billing contact are, for convenience, referred to as "data subjects" below.
Part of the Task Force's charter is to document examples of relevant existing privacy laws regarding the display and transmittal of this data which may inform the Task Force's work and guide us in our decisions.
Information (including links and copies) of laws, regulations, and cases responsive to the following points are of our particular interest:
How would the applicable law be determined in a situation in which these three parties are located in different countries?
We appreciate your assistance.
