Registries are bound by the Account-Holders Agreements to keep confidential all information regarding account-holders.
There are two exceptions:
In most cases, Registries should be registered with the Office of Data Protection. Under the Data Protection Act, an account-holder may apply to see the information held on their files.
Account-holders can make application for such information direct to the Registry rather than to the Office of Data Protection.
All entries in the directory are made with the users' consent, in the knowledge that the directory is freely available to members of the public.
