Procedure for the disclosure of domain name contact data
Since the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), WHOIS domain name holder information has no longer been displayed in our WHOIS.
However, as a registrar accredited by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) regulatory authority, OVHcloud is contractually mandated to allow third parties to request access to non-public registration data. This obligation is set out in the “Temporary Specification for gTLD Registration Data”, adopted on 17 May 2018 by the ICANN Board of Directors via resolutions 2018.05.17.01 and 2018.05.17.09.
In practice, third parties can therefore request the disclosure of contact data for a domain name, provided that they can justify a legitimate interest.
Commitments from the requestor
If OVHcloud accepts the disclosure request, it is important to note that the data sent to the requestor is personal data. For this reason, it will be sent in strict confidence. As a result, the requestor must agree not to use this data for any reasons other than those specified in the request, and not to disclose the data to third parties.
