What if my country’s privacy laws prohibit collection of WHOIS data?

ICANN does not require registries or registrants to break laws in order to address conflicts between the collection of WHOIS data by a registry or registrar and sovereign privacy laws and regulations. Registries or registrars that can demonstrate national laws prohibiting the collection or publication of personal data can seek a waiver from this requirement.
