  • Types of Requests. A Small Orange may receive the following types of requests concerning its Subscribers:
    • Data Requests. A data request is a request for information or documents relating to Subscriber accounts in connection with official criminal investigations or other legal proceedings.

Examples of acceptable data requests include:
      • Subpoenas
      • Court Orders
      • Search Warrants
      • Legal process received from outside the United States may require a Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) with the United States
      • Other forms of legal process such as Civil Investigative Demands
    • Preservation Requests. A preservation request asks A Small Orange to preserve Subscriber account records in connection with official criminal investigations or other official legal proceedings. Preservation requests must include the following information:

  • Disclosure of Non-Public Domain Registrant Information. As the sponsoring registrar or reseller of certain domain names governed by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"), A Small Orange must permit third parties with a legitimate interest to access masked (non-public) registrant information subject to the data subject's rights under the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") or other similar privacy laws as applicable.

    • First and last name of the Subscriber and email address associated with the account; and

    NOTE: A Request that only includes an IP address may be overly broad and insufficient for A Small Orange to locate a Subscriber account. Please include additional identifiers such domain name or username whenever possible.

    A Small Orange may not be able to respond to a request without this information.

    Additionally, A Small Orange reserves the right to request a copy of the complaint and any supporting documentation that demonstrates how the information requested is related to any pending litigation, formal legal proceeding or investigation.
