I do not feel the AC should abandon Policy Proposal 95: Customer
Confidentiality. I formally petition to move the following text forward for
discussion on the list and at the next Public Policy Meeting. I would
appreciate it if anyone this policy applies to would support moving this
proposal forward by posting statements in support of the petition to this

1. Policy Proposal Name: Customer Confidentiality

2. Proposal Originator: Aaron Wendel

3. Proposal Version: 2.0

4. Date: 10 June 2009

5. Proposal type: new

6. Policy term: permanent

7. Policy statement:

ISPs may choose to enter the customer's name along with the ISP's 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

8. Rationale:

Version 2.0 clarifies the need for the customer name to remain in the SWIP
and RWHOIS information.

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
