2. Further, in term of section 4.3.3,, 4.4.3 and 4.4.8 of the "Registrar Accreditation Agreement" and Section 1, 2 and 3 of the “Terms and Conditions for Registrants", Registrars must obtain accurate and reliable contact information from registrants to ensure accuracy in the domain registration records.
