We may collect your name, job title (if applicable), address, email address, phone number, information from correspondence with you, your account alias and password for user login, information related to the use of our Services, payment information such as credit card or other billing information, and additional Personal Data you provide to us. While you are free to choose what information you provide to us or whether you want to provide information to us at all, some information, such as your name, address, payment information, and information about your Services usage or subscription may be necessary for the performance of our contractual obligations. If you do not provide such information to us, you will not be able to license or use certain Services.
Personal Data collected via technology.
Personal Data we receive from others.
We may receive Personal Data about you from third parties such as social media sites, law enforcement agencies, your employer (if you use Services through a subscriber account provided by your employer), promotional partners, and other marketing vendors. This information may include your name, company and job title (if applicable), address, email address, and phone number.
Personal Data associated with the registration or maintenance of an internet domain.
We collect domain and DNS related information that is available to the public (often referred to as Open Source Intelligence or OSINT) from entities tasked with coordinating the internet’s global domain name system. This information (“DNS related information”) may include the name, address, phone number, and email address of a domain registrant, administrative contact, or technical contact.
