ARIN is pleased to announce the release of the new Bulk Whois Terms of
Use (ToU). On 26 April 2012, ARIN concluded its consultation with the
community with regards to the updated ToU, which aligns standard service
language across all ARIN service agreements and clarifies permissible
and impermissible uses of the Bulk Whois data.

The new ToU can be found, along with the Bulk Whois Request form, at:

Existing Bulk Whois users will be sent the new ToU this week. The new
ToU must be signed and returned to ARIN within 30 business days in order
to retain access to the service. Users who do not return a signed ToU
will have their Bulk Whois access disabled.

All new Bulk Whois applicants will be required to sign and comply with
the new ToU before they are granted access to the service through ARIN
