The transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Further, communicating via the Internet and other electronic means necessarily involves personal information passing through or being handled by third parties such as Internet service providers. Although F3.space will do its best to protect personal data, F3.space cannot guarantee the security of the information transmitted and any transmission of information is at your own risk.
F3.space collects certain data from its contracted registrars. Such data includes domain name registration information provided by Registered Name Holders to registrars, including, but not limited to: registered domain name, nameserver delegation, Registered Name Holder’s name, contact name, address, phone number, and email address (“Whois Data”). While F3.space will comply with all requirements related to the accuracy of Whois Data under its registry agreements with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”), F3.space cannot guarantee that all personal data received is accurate or up‐to-date and will not, therefore, be responsible for any inaccuracies. To support the security of the Internet and ensure continuity in service, F3.space is required to maintain a service that provides Whois Data (the “Whois Service”). The Whois Service is available to any Internet user, and its use does not require prior authorization or permission. For example, the Whois Service discloses Whois Data to third parties to ascertain the Registered Name Holder or the registrar of a domain name in cases of (i) technical problems that might occur when accessing its domain; (ii) assisting law enforcement authorities in investigations, crime prevention, and matters of national security; (iii) helping to counter the infringement of third-party legal rights; (iv) preventing fraud; and (v) other lawful queries. In essence, Registered Name Holders’ Whois Data is publicly available upon request. In case of a registrar’s failure, loss of registrar accreditation, court order, or other emergency event that prompts the temporary or definitive transfer of domain names from one registrar to another registrar, F3.space may provide ICANN or another third party with Whois Data. More information on the Whois Service is available in the Whois Access Policy, which is available on the F3.space website.
F3.space shall take all reasonable steps to protect personal data collected from loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Personal data supplied to F3.space will not be given, sold, rented, loaned, or otherwise disclosed to any third parties outside of F3.space, except when F3.space has express permission or under special circumstances, such as when F3.space believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with legal processes; (ii) enforce or comply with agreements between F3.space and ICANN; (iii) enforce or comply with agreements between F3.space and registrars; (iv) comply with policies adopted from time to time by F3.space and posted under “Policies” on the F3.space website; or (v) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of F3.space, its contracted parties, customers, or the public. F3.space may share zone file data (such as domain names and name servers) with third parties for lawful purposes. F3.space may also share personal data with vendors, escrow agents, consultants and other service providers (“Service Providers”) engaged by or working with F3.space and who need access to such information to carry out their work for F3.space. F3.space will not use Personal Data to directly contact Registered Name Holders except as agreed to with Registrar specifically or for promotional or marketing purposes without Registrar’s consent. F3.space is not responsible for the actions of Service Providers or other third parties, nor is F3.space responsible for any additional information provided directly to these Service Providers or other third parties by registrars or Registered Name Holders. F3.space may from time to time use data submitted by registrars for statistical analysis, provided that any such analysis will not disclose individual non-public personal data and such non-public personal data only is used for internal business purposes.
F3.space reserves the right to send Registered Name Holders emails related to business practices and systems operations, such as outage notification and quota warnings, and / or as required by ICANN.
