Re: [nc-impwhois] Definition of Marketing Activities


Understood. I wss looking at this definition as applying to the data that
ultimately gets included in a bulk whois release. Keeping the opt-out
policy in place is important as it allows a registrant to not have their
data included at all.

I also like the idea that I believe Ross/Tucows has suggested, that bulk be
an opt-in process. Any other business that uses personal data gathered from
an opt-out process is usually looked down upon from privacy groups. I don't
see why this should be any different. But at least tightening up how the
data is used is still a big improvement.

   We should be careful not to restrict the meaning of "marketing
   activities" so far that we may allow things unconditionally which
   may be covered by the current opt-out provision (3.6.6) -- that text
   quite generally talks about opting out of data uses for "marketing
