not expose your personal information. You can disable cookies in your web browser; however,
doing so may prevent you from utilizing most services on our site. An alternative to disabling
cookies is to configure your web browser to delete all cookies upon closing the browser - this
way you can utilize all of Reg-Names's services, while only storing/using cookies while they are
scripts to analyze web requests and site traffic trends, including users' movements around our
site for purposes of gathering demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may
receive data from these providers on an individual or aggregated basis which helps us better
understand web site traffic trends; however, no personal information in our possession is
relayed to any of these providers as part of this process.
As is customary for all providers in Reg-Names's business, our site uses forms to collect
personal information (including your name, address, telephone number, and email address) so you
can place orders, manage your services, and request information and support. We may also request
proof of identification, financial information, or other forms of information necessary to
provide the services that you request.
Any information you transmit to us via forms on our site, or give us in any other way, including
through email, our API, phone, or via contacting our support team will be stored. This
information may be used for purposes of contacting you regarding your use of our services. You
may update personal information stored or request not to be contacted by us - see below under
"Updating Your Information"
We gather certain information that is naturally transmitted as part of handling standard Internet
protocols, such as HTTPS. We use this information, gathered as a result of your use of our
services, via the Internet, to help personalize our site, diagnose problems with our servers,
and to administer our site. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses,
browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and/or click-stream data.
We also gather broad demographic information from this data to help us improve our site and
Most domain registrations require publishing contact-related information in WHOIS
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WHOIS). With most registrars this process, by default, involves
transmitting your personal information to the registries responsible for the top-level domains
in your account(s). Reg-Names is different - by default, we do not transmit your personal
information to domain registries thereby preventing disclosure of personal information in WHOIS.
Our WHOIS privacy service (https://www.Reg-Names.com/Support/WHOIS-Privacy) is free and is
enabled by default. It is still possible for you to transmit and publish your personal
information in WHOIS by explicitly disabling WHOIS privacy on a per domain or account-level
basis; however, you have to explicitly request that this be done via our site.
A few country code top-level domain registries have policies preventing us from protecting your
personal information from being disclosed in public WHOIS - those ccTLDs are listed here:
If you choose to opt out of our free WHOIS privacy service, please review the privacy portion
(where available) of the Registry Policies for the top-level domain in which you wish to or have
registered a domain name to better understand how your WHOIS data is utilized by the individual
registry. Also, please note that when you disable WHOIS privacy, your personal information will
become publically available. This means that anyone can download/store/copy/distribute your
personal information; even if you enable WHOIS privacy later on.
We use security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information
under our control. When you enter sensitive information on our web site forms, we encrypt the
transmission of that information using Transport Layer Security (TLS).
We follow accepted industry standards to protect the personal information transferred to us,
both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or
method of information storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute
security. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can
