Privacy

.Club Domains Privacy Policy

.Club Domains is committed to protecting the privacy of those who register domain names (“Registrants”) and make use of its Internet domain name registry services (the “Services”).  .Club Domains will handle Personal Data provided to it by registrars and Registrants in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY. BY ACCESSING OR USING THE SERVICES, YOU EXPRESSLY AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS DESCRIBED HEREIN AND ALL TERMS INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ALL OF THESE TERMS, DO NOT USE THE SERVICES.

.Club Domains reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time without
notice, such changes will be available on the .Club Domains website at http://www.nic.club/privacy. Each time you access or use the Services, you will be bound by the then effective Privacy Policy. Continued use of a .club Domain Name constitutes access or use of the Services.

 External Websites

The .Club Domains website and the Services may contain links to external websites. .Club Domains is not responsible for and cannot control the content or privacy practices of other entities. These entities may have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any Personal Data to their websites.

Use of the Internet

The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Further, communicating via the Internet and other electronic means necessarily involves personal information passing through or being handled by third parties such as Internet service providers. Although .Club Domains will do its best to protect Personal Data, .Club Domains cannot guarantee the security of the information transmitted and any transmission of information is at your own risk.

 Information Collected and Whois Service

.Club Domains collects certain data from its contracted registrars. Such data includes domain name registration information provided by Registrants to registrars, including, but not limited to: registered domain name, nameserver delegation, Registrant name, contact name, address, phone number, email address, and IP address (“Whois Data”). While .Club Domains will comply with all requirements related to the accuracy of Whois Data under its registry agreements with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”), .Club Domains cannot guarantee that all Personal Data received is accurate or up-to-date and will not, therefore, be responsible for any inaccuracies.

To support the security of the Internet and ensure continuity in service, .Club Domains is required to maintain a service that provides Whois Data (the “Whois Service”). The Whois Service is available to any Internet user, and its use does not require prior authorization or permission. For example, the Whois Service discloses Whois Data to third parties to ascertain the Registrant or the registrar of a domain in cases of (i) technical problems that might occur when accessing its domain; (ii) assisting law enforcement authorities in investigations, crime prevention, and matters of national security; (iii) helping to counter the infringement of third-party legal rights; (iv) preventing fraud; and (v) other lawful queries. In essence, Registrant Whois Data is publicly available upon request. In case of a registrar’s failure, loss of registrar accreditation, court order, or other emergency event that prompts the temporary or definitive transfer of domain names from one registrar to another registrar, .Club Domains may provide ICANN or another third party with Whois Data. More information on the Whois Service is
available in the Acceptable Use and Anti-Abuse Policy and Whois Access Policy, both available on the .Club Domains website.

Other Use of and Access to Personal Data

.Club Domains shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Data collected from loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Personal Data is limited to data supplied to .ClubDomains during the registration process. Personal Data supplied to .Club Domains will not be given, sold, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed to any third parties outside of .Club Domains or a .Club Domains affiliate, except when .Club Domains has express or implied permission or under special circumstances, such as when .Club Domains believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with legal processes; (ii) enforce or comply with agreements between .Club Domains and ICANN; (iii) enforce or comply with agreements between .Club Domains and registrars; (iv) comply with policies adopted from time to time by .Club Domains and posted under “Policies” on the .Club Domains website; or (v) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of .Club Domains, its contracted parties, customers, or the public.
