  3. What Data We Do Not Process

    We do not collect nor process any data other than that mentioned in Section 2 above. For example, We do not collect or store:

    • Any information regarding the means and source of payment of the domain name registration (such as “card on file”, transaction number provided by a third party payment processor, etc.), or
    • Any log files, billing records and other records containing communications source and destination information.

    You may have provided such information (and/or other) to the COREhub reseller in charge of your domain name. For any issue regarding that data, you must contact the COREhub reseller in charge directly.

  4. What is the Legal Basis for the Processing

    Processing is necessary for the performance of the Registration Agreement, the contract which, according to ICANN rules, You have entered or must enter with Us (through one of Our resellers, as the case may be) prior to registering any domain name sponsored by Us.

  5. Why We Process Data (Purpose)

    We only collect and process data which is strictly necessary to provide You with the domain name registration services requested by You or by one of Our resellers on Your behalf. We will not process any data in a manner incompatible with this purpose.

    1. Data for which We Are the Data Controller (jointly with Our resellers, Registries and ICANN)

      Processing of the following data:

      • Registrant’s Name
      • Organization
      • Postal Address
      • Email
      • Administrative Contact Email
      • Service-related data that is not personal in nature (member/reseller providing the service; registration date and expiration; domain status; name servers; DNSSEC service)

      Is necessary for the performance of the Registration Agreement, the contract which You have entered or must enter with Us prior to registering any domain name sponsored by Us, and provide You with the registration services requested by You.

      We are for all these Data Processed items COREhub is a joint controller with our resellers, the Registry Operators and ICANN.

      The Data Processed may used by Us and/or by Our corresponding reseller to verify Your compliance with the Registration Agreement and to send You mandatory notifications like expiration notices, whois accuracy notices, change of registrant notices, transfer notices and other notices strictly required for compliance.

    2. Data for which COREhub is the Data Processor (on behalf of the Registries and/or ICANN)

      For the rest of the Data Processed (administrative contact other than email; technical contact; eventually billing contact) COREhub is a data processor on behalf of the Registry Operators and/or ICANN who mandate the processing of such data. And for TLD-specific information (such as “intended use”; “specific business activity” etc.) We are data processors on behalf of the respective Registry Operators.

  6. For How Long Do We Keep The Data (Retention)

    The Data Processed will be deleted one (1) year after the termination of the Registration Agreement. Specifically, We completely erase contact handles from the production system when they are not linked to an active domain for longer than one (1) year. This one-year post-contractual retention period is currently mandated by ICANN.

    Due to statutory retention obligations (tax, accounting, etc), we keep historical data in a separate access-restricted database, stored in secured servers that We control, for a period of six (6) years after the termination of the Registration Agreement (Art. 30 Código de Comercio). This retention time may vary if the applicable laws change. In cases where the is a current or potential legal claim, We may keep specific historical information associated to that claim for as long as it is reasonable needed to solve the claim.

    We limit the access to the data (production and historical) to the employees that need access to do their jobs, mostly support, accountants/tax advisors, lawyers and ICT (developers).

  7. From Whom Do We Collect the Data (Source)

    We operate on a purely reseller-based business model and only in exceptional cases We accept direct registration from end customers. Thus We normally obtain the Data Processed from the reseller to which You have requested the domain name registration. The said reseller is therefore a joint controller of the Data Processed.

  8. Data From Third Party Individuals

    With respect to third-party individuals whose personal data You may provide to Us with (through the corresponding reseller), You represent and warrant that You have informed such third-party individuals of the intended uses and recipients of their personal data, of how can they access and, if necessary, modify the data We hold about them. You also represent and guarantee that You have obtained from such third party individuals the corresponding consent to process their personal data according to this Registration Agreement.

  9. To Whom We Disclose the Data (Recipients)

    To comply with the Registration Agreement and be able to provide You with the domain name registration services requested by You through one of Our resellers We must disclose the Data Processed to:
