ICANN sets several important domain name policies that determine what personal information is collected, published, or otherwise shared about Internet domain name registrants. ICANN’s WHOIS policy, its Registrar Accreditation Agreement, and other policies become a global standard for the handling of personal data about Internet users. What obligation does ICANN have to align its policies with international standards for data protection? How are legal privacy protections treated in ICANN’s policies? As an example, this discussion will pay specific attention to European data protection requirements in comparison with ICANN policy. What role do law enforcement and data protection officers play in developing ICANN policies that address the treatment of personal data.
