The Registry and the data publicity

The Registry, during the procedures of the domain name registration and maintenance, with the help of  the Registrars, requests the Registrant personal data.

These data are recorded in a database, called DBAN or ‘Data Base dei Nomi Assegnati’ (Database of Assigned Names), where all the information related to the registered domain names are stored. The Registry makes always accessible the connection ‘domain name-registrant’s name’ trough the data base consulting system called “WHOIS”.

The policy of the Registry .it on the data publicity follows the technical rules for the specific fields foreseen by the international bodies operating in Internet, according to the Italian and European Law about the personal data protection and the praxis adopted by other ccTLD.
