[GNSO-Accuracy-ST] Identity Proofing Clarity - Follow Up Homework

all such investigations are based on a substantiated whois inaccuracy
complaint where the complainant states that the registrant has provided
false details. As this regards a potential violation of our registration
agreement with the registrant we will investigate the identity of the
registrant in this specific case only. The usual complaint is from the
party listed in the registration record that they did not register the
domain name in the first place or sold it a while ago and now found that
the record was never updated by the old registrant.
That said, aside from the investigation following a substantiated
inaccuracy complaint, identity of the registrant is not required under
current policies. These cases are rather rare and are usually detected when
the listed registrant contact receives their annual WDRP mail. In these
cases we contact our customer and ask that they reach out to the registrant
with the request to update the registration details.
