We may also contract with various third parties who help us provide and maintain our search engine and Web Site technology. We may also use a third party to process payments and may subcontract out production, fulfillment, or other operations. In these cases, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such third parties from disclosing your personal information, except for the purpose of providing the services in question.

When we transfer your information to any third-party companies (e.g. analytics or web hosting vendors), we will ensure they maintain the same level of security as AppDetex and only use the data in compliance with the relevant contractual requirements.

4. Data Collection For Domain Name Registration.  When AppDetex customers place an order for the registration of a domain name and/or when customers correct or update registration information, customers are required to provide information such as the following: first name, last name, postal address, fax number (where available), e-mail address and telephone number. All such information is required in order to provide the service requested unless otherwise stated at the time. Customers will also be required to provide the name, postal address, fax number (where available), e-mail address and telephone number of the technical, administrative and billing contacts associated with the domain name. Once the domain name has been registered, the registration agreement requires customers to correct and promptly update this information to maintain accuracy.  Although such information is provided to AppDetex by its corporate customers, it may contain personal data.

Such provision of personal data is mandatory under the rules adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”) and/or local domain name registries, notably for publication in the applicable domain name WHOIS (a service offered by each domain name registry that allows users to check domain name registration details). In compliance with AppDetex’s obligations as a domain name registrar, AppDetex is required to collect further mandatory data in relation to domain names including (1) the domain name (2) original creation date (3) expiration date and (4) the names of the primary and secondary nameservers for the domain together with IP addresses.

AppDetex will also log other identifying details necessary for the provision of domain registration services and to ensure AppDetex only acts on your instructions, such as written communications, confirmations, modifications and any other related correspondence, payment source information, log files, billing records, other communications information such as source IP address, HTTP headers and any other records concerning domain registration such as dates, times, zones and sessions.

The information which customers provide when registering a domain name is required to allow AppDetex to properly handle the customer’s domain name registration, administer the customer’s account, including notifying the customer about matters related to the domain name, such as renewal or updates and to provide other services that the customer has ordered from AppDetex.

In providing personal data about other individuals (such as someone in whose name customer is registering or the domain name’s technical or billing contacts) customer represents that customer has notified them of each of the following: (1) the purposes for which information will be used; (2) the recipients of their personal data; and (3) how the individual can access and correct the information.  Customer further represents and acknowledges that customer has obtained all necessary consents from any such individuals.

5. Disclosure Of Data For Domain Name Registration Purposes. In accordance with the requirements imposed on AppDetex as a domain name registrar, AppDetex is required to disclose your domain name registration information, which may include personal data, as follows: (1) WHOIS data is available to the public for free query-based access; (2) domain related data, including communications between AppDetex and Customer, are made available to ICANN and domain name registries pursuant to their applicable rules and regulations; (3) AppDetex must escrow domain related data as often as is required to reputable third parties appointed by ICANN or domain registries; and (4) third parties are able to access WHOIS data in bulk provided such third parties agree, in pertinent part, not to use them improperly such as for the transmission of spam or unsolicited email.  If a domain name customer orders additional products and services, this may require disclosure of personal data to additional third parties. Customers will be notified at the time of the order about the nature and scope of any such disclosure and the applicable third parties.

6. Links. For your convenience, we may provide links to certain third-party websites or referrals to certain third parties’ products or services. If you choose to visit a third party’s web site or use its products or services, please be aware that the third party’s privacy policy, and not our Privacy Policy, will govern your activities and any information disclosed by you while interacting with the third party.  Additionally, please be aware that our Privacy Policy does not apply to: services or products offered by other companies, including but not limited to products or services that may be displayed to you in any search results; companies that may be included in AppDetex services; or other companies linked with our Web Site, products or services.

As a result, while we do our utmost to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and all information which you transmit to AppDetex is done at your own risk. We recommend that you do not divulge your user identification or password to anyone and that you do not provide access to your account to any third party.

11. International Users And Uses. AppDetex is based in the United States. If you are coming to this Web Site from the EU or any other country with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from United States law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU, the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or such other region and by providing your personal data you agree to the use of your personal data for the purposes in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Additionally, please review the following link to the US Department of Commerce website with respect to international law and privacy policy:

AppDetex, and its subsidiaries RegistrarTrust, LLC, RegistrarBrand, LLC, RegistrarGuard, LLC, RegistrarSecure, LLC, all comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.  AppDetex has certified to the Department of Commerce that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles.  If there is any conflict between the terms in this Privacy Policy and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern.  To learn more about the PrivacyShield program, and to view our certification, please visit You can also view our PrivacyTrust certificate by visiting:

In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, AppDetex commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information.  EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our PrivacyShield policy should first contact AppDetex at:  Data Protection Officer,

AppDetex has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to PrivacyTrust, an alternative dispute resolution provider located in the United States and within the EU and Worldwide. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction, please visit PrivacyTrust for more information ( or to file a complaint: Raise a privacy shield complaint with PrivacyTrust.

The services of PrivacyTrust are provided at no cost to you.

The Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over AppDetex’s compliance with the Privacy Shield.  Additionally, an individual has the possibility, under certain conditions, to invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance and for resolution of claimed violations of the Privacy Shield Principles not resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield mechanisms, please see the Privacy Shield website for additional information:

Moreover, in conjunction with the Privacy Shield, AppDetex commits to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and/or the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner, as applicable, and comply with the advice given by the panel and/or Commissioner, as applicable, with regard to data transferred from the EU and/or Switzerland, as applicable.

With respect to domain name registration, the disclosure of personal data to ICANN and domain name registries necessarily involves the transfer of personal data to entities located outside the EEA in order to perform the services.  Other third parties may be located outside the EEA.

The technical safety measures and data protection regulations in certain non-EU or non-EEA countries may not equal or comply with the safety measures and data protection regulations within the EU or the EEA and so the security or confidentiality of personal data cannot be guaranteed as equivalent to data handling within the EU or EEA. When passing on personal data for purposes stated in this Privacy Policy, it might not be possible to ensure an adequate level of data protection within the meaning of Article 49 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.

By agreeing to this Privacy Policy, Customer therefore explicitly consents to the transfer of personal data to such non-EU or non-EEA countries although the level of data protection may be insufficient compared to the level mandated by the EU or EEA. If Customer refuses such data transfer, AppDetex will not be able to provide Customer with the services that were ordered.

However, please be advised, that in the context of an onward transfer of personal information, a Privacy Shield organization has responsibility for the processing of personal information it receives under the Privacy Shield and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. The Privacy Shield organization shall remain liable under the Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles unless the organization proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
