Hello Maria,

Great work.

I accept that asking to check "compliance" with the RAA might be hard
for you, but could you extract a quote from the terms and conditions for
each registrar that appears to match the 3.7.7 requirement.   

The reason I am asking is that I would expect that the privacy policies
may differ, but I would hope that the terms and conditions with respect
to clause 3.7.7 were fairly consistent amongst registrars.

E.g for Melbourne IT:
From: http://www.melbourneit.com.au/policies/gtldtermcond.php3 

22. Use of Information
22.1 Registrant acknowledges Information obtained from Registrant will
22.1.1 transmitted to the registry administrator for registry use 
22.1.2 publicly available as required by ICANN 
22.1.3 used by Melbourne IT for inclusion in registers and data bases
produced by Melbourne IT or its licensees. 
22.2 Registrant may access data provided and rectify any incorrect data
relating to Registrant through a registry key to be provided by
Melbourne IT. Registrant may provide a written authorisation to an agent
to hold and use the registry key. Registrant must inform Melbourne IT of
its current agent as required by Melbourne IT. 

22.3 Registrant consents to the use of the Information for the purposes
set out in clauses 22.1.1 to 22.1.3. 

22.4 Registrant warrants that it has provided, or will provide, to any
third party individuals whose personal details the Registrant has
provided to Melbourne IT, the same information about use of those
details as are set out in this clause 22, and that the third parties
individually have consented to use of their personal data. 

22.5 Melbourne IT will not process Information in a manner incompatible
with the purposes and limitations set out in this clause 22. Melbourne
IT will process Information in accordance with the terms of its Privacy
Policy, which can be viewed at http://www.melbourneit.com.au/privacy/. 

22.6 Melbourne IT will take reasonable precautions to protect personal
information obtained from Registrant from loss, misuse, unauthorised
access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.
