Telling you when we give information to third parties

From 1st March 2016 where data about a registration, in excess of that available by inspection of the WHOIS, is passed by Nominet to a third party, then Nominet shall inform the registrant and registrar by email of the identity of the third party and the information passed to that third party. This shall not apply:

  1.  where the passing of such information is prohibited by law, or
  2.  where it has been, prior to the passing of such information, shown by the third party, to Nominet’s reasonable satisfaction, that there is a very substantial likelihood that the rights of others will be damaged by disclosing the fact that such information has been passed, or that law enforcement would be prejudiced.
