Hi Marika,

When an ex-Registrar's customer database is passed on to the gaining Registrar, do you just hand the whole thing over, or do you strip out the data belonging to old customers who no longer have names registered?

I ask this because when databases were handed over to Directi in the past, it appeared that they then used that information to spam old customers of the ex-Registrar.

That's not good.

Danny, in response to your first question, the advisory is the implementation of one of the recommendations made by the Inter- Registrar Transfer Policy Part A PDP Working Group. This recommendation was adopted by the GNSO Council in its resolution 20090416-2: the GNSO Council ‘Recommends that ICANN staff communicate to registries and registrars that the current bulk transfer provisions do apply to cases requiring the transfer of all names in one single gTLD under management of a registrar’. For further information, please see the IRTP Part A PDP Final Report on http://gnso.icann.org/issues/transfers/irtp-final-report-a-19mar09.pdf .
