2.3.5 Show/hide owner details in WHOIS

Banner WHOIS privacy protection is a service that protects the personal information of domain owners by hiding it from public access. This helps prevent unwanted contact and ensure confidentiality.

According to the GDPR, European domain data is processed under strict security and privacy rules. For international domains, the GDPR policy automatically hides personal data. It is important to note that data withheld under the GDPR cannot be opened or displayed in WHOIS, even if it is public information.

Reminder: GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a general data protection regulation adopted by the European Union. It sets standards and rules for the collection, storage and processing of personal data of EU citizens. The GDPR is designed to protect the confidentiality and privacy of personal information, as well as ensure the rights and freedoms of its subjects. This means that organizations that collect and process personal data must adhere to certain rules and standards regarding data protection and informing users about how their information is used.
