This is the questionnaire that I'm asking Glen and Barbara to distribute to the registrar constituency.


The GNSO's WHOIS Task Force #2 is chartered with reviewing the current
ICANN whois policy regarding the collection, disclosure and transmittal
of data.

It would be a great help to the Task Force if you could answer the
following questions in regard to your own practices as a registrar. If you operate through resellers, please provide whatever relevant responses you can with regard to their practices, and also please forward these questions to key resellers responsible for at leaast 70 percent of your reseller volume so that they may respond directly to the Task Force.

Please return your responses to the Task Force no later than February
16.  All responses to this questionnaire will be archived and made
public, although e-mail addresses will be
obfuscated in order to limit spam.

1. What mechanisms do you use to inform potential and existing
    registrants of the following:

    (a)   the purposes for which contact data is collected;
    (b)   the intended recipients or categories of recipients of contact
    (c)   which contact data are obligatory and which (if any) are
    (d)   how registrants may access and seek to rectify their contact

2. What mechanisms do you use to obtain consent from registrants for
    use of their contact data?  Please provide applicable URLs.

3. If you offer registrations through channels other than your website, how do the mechanisms used to inform registrants of the use of their contact data, and to gain consent for that usage, differ from those used on the website?

4. What requirements, if any, do you make of your resellers in terms of
    informing registrants of the use of their contact data, and gaining
    consent for that usage?

5. Do you provide any mechanisms for anonymous domain registrations? If so, under what conditions, if any, is the registrant's anonymity lifted, or the anonymous registration canceled?

6. Do you provide any mechanisms to limit the amount of contact data
    made publicly available through WHOIS?  If so, under what
    conditions is access -- if any -- to those data granted which are
    collected, but not made publicly available through WHOIS?

7. Describe any accommodations that you have made to comply with local
    laws pertaining to the collection or display of contact information.
    Please cite the specific laws.
