1. Policy Proposal Name: Customer Confidentiality

2. Proposal Originator: Aaron Wendel

3. Proposal Version: 1.0

4. Date: 9 June 2009

5. Proposal type: new

6. Policy term: permanent

7. Policy statement:

ISPs may choose to enter their own address and phone number in
reassignments and reallocations in lieu of the customer's address and
phone number.  The customer's actual information must be provided to
ARIN on request and will be held in the strictest confidence.

8. Rationale:

Customer contact lists are one of the most proprietary and confidential
pieces of information in any business.  The requirements for ISPs to
publish those lists via SWIP or RWHOIS runs contrary to good business
practices and invites competitors and others to solicit both individuals
and companies receiving reassignments and sub allocations from upstream

9. Timetable for implementation: immediate
