1. Collection and Storage of KYC Documents:

  • KYC documents submitted by users may be stored on our servers for a period of 1-[until the account is deactivated] days.
  • As part of our random KYC checks (rather than for every individual), we may need to retain documents for a sufficient period to conduct checks in case of any account-related issues.

2. Immediate Deletion of KYC Documents:

  • If you are randomly selected for a KYC check and successfully pass, we may promptly delete your KYC documents to ensure security.

3. Document Recommendations and Disclaimer:

  • We emphasize that we are a non-profit organization committed to protecting user privacy to the fullest extent. However, we do not accept any legal liability. Our KYC verification process is lenient, aiming to verify and ensure that domain registrations are not abused or used for criminal activities.

4. Unique KYC Document Requirement:

  • Each individual or organization is allowed to upload only one unique KYC document. If multiple accounts upload the same KYC document, we may suspend all accounts associated with those documents. For up the domain quantity limit, please contact us directly at [email protected]. We may increase your domain registration limit upon reasonable request.

5. Your Rights:

  • You have the right to request the complete alteration or deletion of your KYC documents from our servers at any time. However, in the event of account suspension or if we have already deleted your KYC documents, you may need to undergo KYC again to restore your account.
