.ca Registry Seeking Feedback on WHOIS Privacy Policy

Posted September 10th, 2009

The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), which manages the .ca domain name, is soliciting comments on its WHOIS Privacy Policy HERE. Under the Policy, .ca WHOIS search results do not display registrant, administrative or technical contact information for domain names registered by individuals. The registrant, administrative and technical contact information for businesses and other organizations is displayed by default.

As part of the policy and in the event of a domain name dispute, CIRA implemented an online message delivery form which sends a message to the administrative contact of a privacy-shielded domain name. The person sending the message can ask CIRA to disclose the registrant’s contact information if the dispute is not resolved within 14 days of sending the online message. CIRA will only disclose the registrant’s contact information under specific circumstances.

Comments on the Policy can be made by e-mail, online form or regular mail. The online form and contact particulars can be found HERE.

The deadline for comments is September 24, 2009.
