IP addresses and Browser details
Our servers detect the IP address of your browser from the TCP protocol. This IP address is used by NameOcean servers only for our internal use - security and rate limiting.
We store browser details and IP addresses of each account for security reasons - mainly for but not limited to investigate hacked accounts or fraudulent activities. Login history is stored for three years on our servers and these history logs are available within the Profile section of your control panel.
We store customer details - e-mail and contact information only for account, billing purposes, and notifications. Under no circumstances NameOcean will lease, sell, or provide your personal information to any third parties without your permission, a court order or legit legal request by legal authorities.
All customer details listed above are stored on servers within the European Union (currently in Frankfuth, Germany).
Domain WHOIS information
For each domain registration or transfer, we request whois details which we are providing to the Domain Registry, authority from where we are buying the domain name. Every TLD has a specific Domain Registry we are using. The Domain Registry manages a WHOIS database which is a register of all domain names within that Domain Registry and their owners. Information in the WHOIS contains the contact details of the owner and proof of ownership of the customers at the Domain Registry. How the WHOIS database is shared with other parties is managed by the Domain Registry and NameOcean does not have the ability to prevent visibility of the contact details to public.
The Privacy Protection option provided by NameOcean for particular domain extensions allows the customer details to be hidden to the domain registry. When the Privacy Protection is activated, Yuix Networks Inc. is listed as the owner of the domain name in the WHOIS database, but not the Customer. Note that some TLDs do not support the Privacy Protection option and you will not be able to activate it in order to hide your contact details from the Domain Registry and the Domain Registry WHOIS database. Even with enabled Privacy Protection, the Customer is still listed as the owner in the records in NameOcean’s database and the contact details can be exposed if the domain name is used for illegal activities or from a legal request by the authorities or a court order.
Some of the cookies are set and managed by Google Analytics, a tool from Aphabet Inc (parent company of Google Inc) to analyze website visits. We are not sharing any customer details or identifiers collected and defined in point 2.
Credit cards information.
All purchases on the websites managed by NameOcean are handled by a third party - Stripe.com. NameOcean does not arrange, save or transport any credit card numbers.
DNS query details
NameOcean does not store or share any query details or track end-user activities. To provide stable service, we are counting the requests sent from single IP address for each DNS zone for analytical purposes and to be able to prevent DDoS attacks against our infrastructure or services of customers. Statistics for each zone are available and accessible within the control panel of each Customer and are deleted as soon as the DNS zone is removed by the customer or the storage limits defined in terms of Service are reached.
Erase of data
If you need your account ( including your data) with NameOcean to be deleted, please contact us on email@example.com and our Technical Support will erase all the information we have in our database for your account.
