This is why you sould think of WHOis Privacy (GDPR policy)

GDPR is an EU law that governs how personal data is processed and transferred. GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), also gives individuals the right to ask organizations to delete their data.

Here is the summary:

  • Applies in all EU member states
  • When collecting data, you must have a defined purpose
  • You must give consent
  • Clients have the right to know how their data is being used
  • Personal data breaches must be reported within 72 hours
  • Organizations that violate the law risk £20 million fine or a fine equivalent to 4% of their global sale

This is why having WHOis privacy automatically configured during domain purchase is so crucial

Whois Privacy Protection masks the WHOis thick data with WHOis thin data both of which are available in the Whois database. It is a service to hide your sensitive data.

Thick Data
  • Registrant Contact Information
  • Administrative and Technical contact information
  • Sponsoring Registrar information
  • Registration status

Thin Data

  • Sponsoring registrar contact information
  • Registration dates
  • Expiry dates
