Section 3.3.6 of the RAA requires that registrars make Whois data
available for bulk access on the stated terms and conditions.  It does
not prohibit registrars from making Whois data, or any other data they
possess, available on other terms and conditions that they may

Section merely states that the registrar will agree in its
registration agreement that the registrar will take reasonable steps to
enforce whatever limitations on authorized access it has established.
It does not prohibit the registrar from giving authority for others to
receive access to Personal Data. If a registrar chooses to make bulk
Whois data available *only* under the terms and conditions of section
3.3.6, then under section the registrar must take reasonable
precautions to see that those conditions are observed.  Otherwise, the
registrar can authorize access on a different basis, and implementing
those other access arrangements would not violate section

Section may also be relevant.

Best regards,

Louis Touton

Dan, Louis,

I've got a specific question on the RAA.  Assume that bulk access
eligibility ( [sic,] is reduced to a limited number of
purposes, or that a certain purpose is determined to be "ineligible"
(that's where the task force is currently heading).

Would, in that case, prevent the registrar from voluntarily
making bulk WHOIS data available for the ineligible purpose?
