Has anyone else received an email in Chinese from an entity called Beilong 
Zhongwang in response to a recent CZDS application?

I received one with a link to a Chinese language web page.

According to a Google translate, they request information via e-mail over 
and above what I already supplied via the ICANN portal for all CZDS 

In there they say they will take six months to process zone file requests 
and they will reject them unless the extra information is supplied by email.

Google translate:

3.  Audit

After Beilong Zhongwang receives a new data application, it will review the 
submitted application according to the additional information provided in 
the email.

Beilong Zhongwang will verify all the information provided by the user, 
including but not limited to contacting the applicant by telephone, email or 

The review process for Beilong Zhongwang generally takes six (6) months.

4.  Rejection and Revocation

1. Beilong Zhongwang will reject the applicant's request, including but not 
limited to the following situations:

(1)  any request that does not meet the requirements of Article 2;

(2)  lack of sufficient information to properly identify and locate 

(3)  There is a lack of credible or sufficient detail about the applicant's 
intended use of the data to cause Beilong.com to believe that the applicant 
is likely to do any of the following:

a.  Access or use the data for unlawful or abusive purposes, or in violation 
of all applicable laws and regulations;

b.  Access, use, or allow the data to be accessed or used to harass, annoy, 
interrupt, disrupt or interfere with the normal business operations of any 
registrant (including Beilong Zhongwang);

2.  Beilong.com may revoke the applicant 's right to use the data at any 
time for reasons such as non-compliance with the CZDS terms or any of the

This seems unreasonable, both the excessively long wait period and the 
additional requirements presumably not covered by the ICANN agreement.
