The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect on 28 May 2018. This EU regulation will protect the privacy of European citizens by, inter alia, strictly regulating the way databases containing personal data are created. Further details are provided in our article “GDPR: what you should know as a Combell customer”.
All companies maintaining databases containing personal data must take measures to comply with this regulation.
What does this mean in concrete terms?
Who sends the e-mail?
The owners of .be domains will receive the e-mail directly from DNS Belgium. Combell will not be mentioned in this e-mail.
Who receives the e-mail?
Every owner of a .be domain, based on the information available in the database maintained by DNS Belgium. If the owner purchased the domain via a reseller, the reseller will not be notified; only the actual domain owner will receive the e-mail.
What should you do if you receive the e-mail?
What do resellers need to do?
Absolutely nothing. DNS Belgium will send the e-mail directly to the owners of .be domains. This means our name will not appear anywhere in this message. Obviously, you are free to let your customers know that this e-mail will soon be delivered in their mailbox.
