The registry for .cat domain names, FundaciÃ³ puntCAT, has announced that as of 7 January they have implemented privacy changes for individuals that use their .cat domain name for private use for existing and new registrants. The changes mean registrants can choose non-disclosure of Whois data.
The Catalonian registry says the changes in the privacy settings mean they are among the most privacy friendly and registrant oriented of the generic Top Level Domains.
The changes are also in alignment with European and Spanish data protection regulations and are the default setting for new registrants.
Existing registrants can implement the new privacy settings by going to the control panel for their account with their .cat registrar.
