According to current registration policies adopted by all major registries, each domain registrant is required to provide accurate, complete and current personal data that is made publicly available on the internet. This data usually includes the name, address and email addresses of the registrant. The use of incomplete, fake or incorrect data is a violation of the registration agreement and may lead to the deletion of the domain name.
In order to protect a registrant from abuse of his data, EuropeanNIC provides a privacy protection service via WhoisProxy.com Ltd., keeping the registrant data confidential. By use of this service, the registrant can provide alternate contact data and thus is protected against most common forms of abuse, such as spamming, identity theft, harrassment or other illegal purposes.
