[Gnso-ppsai-pdp-wg] Questions for P/P providers from the WG call earlier today

Hi All,

Let me answer from our point of view and how we handle things :

1.  Because we look at EACH and EVERY request manually if by ticket or 
mail, all requests for disclosure are passed to the PP customer,  we ask 
the 2 parties requestee and pp customer to resolve whatever issue 
between them, as this is the best way forward for all parties.
2.  There is little point allowing a deletion of the domain, as it will 
then simply be registered elsewhere.  However, in point 1 getting the 2 
parties talking and more to the point a resolution fixes the issue.
3.  Case by Case basis - we do not host material for example, thus DMCA 
as an example is simply passed on.  If the issue is with the actual 
domain name, then UDRP.
4.  Well I can answer this one, in the last year we have had 2 requests 
if memory serves and thus 2 disclosures.
5.  As 4, only LEA.  We would only disclose on LEA request (in our 
jurisdiction) or Court order.

Kind regards,
