Dear EPDP Team,

In Toronto, we reached agreement in principle on recommendation #10 but did not have time to develop language to which the team agreed. To move that discussion forward, the support team has developed the proposed language below for discussion and inclusion in the Final Report. Note that the bold language below (bullets 2 and 3) are the new additions, bullet 1 is identical to the language in the Initial Report. Please review this language with your group to ensure it aligns with the agreement that was reached. If you are of the view that it does not conform to the agreement, please:

  1.  Outline your concerns, focusing on how the proposed language does not reflect the principle agreement reached, and;
  2.  Propose edits that would address your concerns that are in line with the agreement reached.

The deadline for doing so is Monday 28 January so that there is sufficient time to review and discuss any concerns. If no concerns are raised, this language will be incorporated into the draft Final Report for your review.

Best regards,

Caitlin, Berry and Marika


Recommendation #10 – Email Communication

1) In relation to facilitating email communication between third parties and the Registered Name Holder, the EPDP Team recommends that current requirements in the Temporary Specification that specify that a Registrar MUST provide an email address or a web form to facilitate email communication with the relevant contact, but MUST NOT identify the contact email address or the contact itself, remain in place.

2) The EPDP Team recommends Registry Operators and Registrars MUST maintain Log Files associated with the transmission of email communications between the Registry Operator/Registrar and the Registered Name Holder.

3) The EPDP notes operational difficulties having to do with contacting registered name holders through webforms (where there is no confirmation that the message sent was received) and pseudonymized email addresses (that often can be readily "hacked" to discover the identity of the addressee), and recommends the GNSO Council initiates work to develop a reliable, safe ways of contacting registrants in cases where their email cannot be displayed.
