DATA IN THE CENTRAL REGISTER

The Central Register is operated by the CZ.NIC Association. The CZ.NIC Association is the administrator of personal data kept in the Central Register. The Registrar is a processor of such data.

The person submitting an application for the registration of a Domain Name or Contact, or an application for changing data pertaining to a Domain Name or Contact:

12.2.1.

grants by lodging such an application their voluntary consent with processing their personal data specified in the application for the purpose of maintaining and administering the Central Register and for the purpose of performance of the obligations and exercise of the rights under the agreement on the registration of the Domain Name, as well as with making such data public through the mediation of the Internet as part of information services rendered by the CZ.NIC Association, where the data may also be provided to the Registrars, including Registrars whose registered office is located outside the territory of the Czech Republic;

12.2.2.

is responsible for the correctness of all data specified in the registration application pertaining to persons mentioned in such an application, and declares that these are not cover names, that they have obtained consent from all persons whose personal data are to be recorded in the Central Register on the basis of the application, and undertakes to obtain such consent in the event of any changes of such persons or data pertaining to such persons.

12.2.3. is obliged to report any changes of the data submitted to the CZ.NIC Association through the mediation of the Registrar without undue delay;

12.2.4.

is obliged to act in such way that in consequence of their doing no duplicate records of Contacts arise, and no identical Contacts differing only as to the Contact Identifier are kept in the Central Register.

Appendix No. 1 states what pieces of information used in the Domain Name records, Contacts and Nameserver Sets are compulsory.

CZ.NIC is entitled to call on the Holder, or the person concerned, to provide any information essential for the identification of these persons, especially date of birth and identification numbers (IN), if such information is necessary for unambiguous identification of the Holder, in particular during legal, arbitrary, administrative or criminal or any other proceedings in progress, or within the resolution of disputes under the Rules of Alternative Dispute Resolution.

The Holder, whose seat, residence or contact address is outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (EU/EEA), is obliged to provide the CZ.NIC Association with its valid contact address within the EU/EEA upon request by CZ.NIC, upon a judicial request, or request by an executive authority, an arbiter, the arbitration court or an administrator or expert under the Rules of Alternative Dispute Resolution, or designate a representative with a mailing address within the EU/EEA at which the Holder may receive mail relating to Domain Names.

If the Holder, or a person to which the personal data relate ascertains or considers that the CZ.NIC Association processes their personal data at variance with the protection of private and family life or at variance with the law, in particular if the data are inaccurate with regard to the purpose of their processing, they may request that CZ.NIC provide an explanation and remedy the situation (including, without limitation, through blocking, correcting, supplementing or destroying the personal data). Nevertheless, it is impossible during the term of registration of the Domain Name to revoke the consent to personal data processing or request destruction of personal data.

13.3.

OPTIMIZATION OF DATA IN THE CENTRAL REGISTER

CZ.NIC is entitled, at its discretion, to optimise the information kept in the Central Register. For this purpose, CZ.NIC is entitled to merge records on Contacts, Nameserver Sets and Key Sets that only differ as to the identifier. If CZ.NIC performs such a merger, all links of the merged elements to the Domain Names as well as their mutual links will be preserved and transferred to the element into which the other elements were merged. The affected persons will be notified by CZ.NIC of such a merger.

The CZ.NIC Association may delete:

13.2.1.

Contacts which were not assigned to any Domain Name, Nameserver Set or Key
Set in the previous 6 months as long as no change was performed in the Contact; this does not apply in case of Contacts that are also MojeID contacts2.

13.2.2. Nameserver Sets which were not assigned to any Domain Name in the previous 6 months and as long as no change was performed in the Nameserver Set.

13.2.3. Key Sets which were not assigned to any Domain Name in the previous 6 months and as long as no change was performed in the Key Set.

13.2.4. the link between the Domain Name and the Key Set in case the Key Set is not functional.

The identifiers of the deleted Contacts, Nameserver Sets and Key Sets cannot be used within 2 months of deletion.

14. 14.1. 14.2. 14.3.
14.4.

PROVISION OF DATA FROM THE CENTRAL REGISTER
The CZ.NIC Association is entitled to make available and document the consent of the Holder to the current version of the Rules of Registration and the Rules of Alternative Dispute Resolution to the court of justice, arbitration court, other state authority or administrator or expert under the Rules of Alternative Dispute Resolution for the purposes of legal, arbitration, administrative, criminal or any other proceedings or dispute resolution under the Rules of Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Annex No. 1 states which details in the Domain Name records, Contacts and Nameserver Sets can be marked as hidden. Hidden information is not published through the public information services (WHOIS), but the right of CZ.NIC to keep such information in the Central Register and to provide it to Registrars for technical reasons necessary for running the Central Register remains unaffected, including if the Registrars have their registered office outside the territory of the Czech Republic.
Upon a written request with official signature certification, CZ.NIC will provide information about the address of the Holder of a specific Domain Name, even if this data is marked as hidden. The request must state and document the purpose for which the applicant is requesting that the data be revealed and CZ.NIC is, at its discretion, entitled to refuse to provide the information if it comes to the conclusion that the purpose of the application is not consistent with good business practice or if the applicant, without any legitimate reason, has repeatedly asked for information about the address of different Holders of various Domain Names. CZ.NIC is entitled to charge for the application. The applicant is entitled to use the information solely for the purpose stated in the application.
CZ.NIC is entitled to provide information marked in the Central Register as hidden, including information provided later pursuant to Article 12.4 or 12.5 to the state administrative bodies and to the courts of justice including the arbitration court or administrator or expert under the Rules of Alternative Dispute Resolution, in compliance with the law and as part of their official activities or dispute resolution. Therefore, it is

14.5. 14.6.

possible to provide only information related to the specific Contacts or specific Domain Names. Under the same conditions, CZ.NIC is also entitled to provide information about historical data, if available.
Upon request of the current Domain name Holder, CZ.NIC will provide historical data from the Central Register which pertain to the Domain Name, i.e. data about the previous Domain Name Holders since the date of the most recent Domain Name registration for the maximum of the last 5 years. For the purpose of this provision, the term “historical data” refers to such data about the previous Holders which cannot be designated as hidden as in Annex No. 1; data about the current Holder are provided irrespective of whether they can be designated by Annex No. 1 as hidden. Historical data for the period preceding 1 January 2010 are provided anonymously; this restriction does not apply to the current Domain Name Holder. Historical data can only be provided if available.
For the purposes of performance of the obligations and exercise of the rights under the agreement on the registration of the Domain Name, CZ.NIC is entitled to provide data from the Central Register to third parties as the processors of such data, provided that such parties provide performance to CZ.NIC as contracting partners for the performance of the obligations and exercise of the rights under the agreement on registration of the Domain Name.

15. 15.1.
15.2. 15.3.
15.4.

RIGHTS AND DUTIES OF THE CZ.NIC ASSOCIATION
Adhering to these Rules of Registration, the CZ.NIC association undertakes to
15.1.1. perform and maintain the Domain Name registration;
15.1.2. keep record of a registered Domain Name in the Central Register;
15.1.3. keep a record of the delegated Domain Name in the CZ zone; and
15.1.4. make every effort that may be reasonably required to ensure a fault­free and smooth operation of the Central Register and the primary name server.
The CZ.NIC Association may adopt technical measures aimed especially at reducing network traffic which threatens the stability of CZ.NIC systems, even if such measures lead or may lead to the reduced availability of the CZ.NIC services, functionality of registered Domain names, nameservers, etc. In that event, the CZ.NIC Association will not be held liable for any damage, but is obliged to make every effort that may be reasonably required to terminate such measures as soon as possible.
If the CZ.NIC Association has the right or obligation to perform registrations, transfers, blocking or cancellations of Domain Names, changes in other records in the Central Register or any other steps under these Rules of Registration, the CZ.NIC Association is entitled to perform such steps even though the request for their execution was not submitted through the Appointed Registrar. The CZ.NIC Association is entitled to perform such a step at the request of the Holder, a person listed in the Central Register or another authorized person submitted in a way different than through the Appointed Registrar even if such a possibility does not follow explicitly from these Rules of Registration.
The CZ.NIC Association may monitor and record telephone and electronic communications in connection with the registration of Domain Names.

16. TERMINATION OF THE DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION 16.1. CZ.NIC association is entitled to terminate, at its discretion, a Domain Name registration if

17.2. 17.3. 17.4. 17.5.

INVALIDATION OF DOMAIN NAME DELEGATION
The CZ.NIC association is entitled to invalidate the delegation of the Domain Name at its own discretion if the same is used in a fashion that endangers national or international computer security, particularly if through the Domain Name or through the services which are made available by the same a harmful content (especially viruses, malware) is distributed or if the content of a different service is masqueraded (especially phishing), or if the hardware that is made available through the Domain Name becomes a control centre of interlinked hardware network distributing the harmful content (especially botnet).
The CZ.NIC Association is entitled to invalidate the delegation of the Domain Name for a period of up to 1 month, even repeatedly; however it is not obliged to actively seek Domain Names which would fit the definitions mentioned in Article 17.1.
Details concerning the examination of conditions for invalidation of the delegation and the procedure of invalidation are determined by CZ.NIC­CSIRT3.
