BuddyNS.com operates as a spin-off of FrontDam GmbH, based in Switzerland. BuddyNS.com provides services to improve the reliability of DNS. FrontDam provides services for security and reliability of Internet services.
BuddyNS values privacy. Although we are subject to Swiss jurisdiction, we deliberately pursue compliance with the additional regulations of the European Union — amongst the world's tightest.
We only collect the Personal Data necessary to deliver service for you. Personal Data is data BuddyNS can link with a specific individual (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number). We anonymise data whenever possible: anonymous data is data that BuddyNS cannot link to any specific individual.
This policy describes BuddyNS’ collection and processing of Personal Data.
You are free to enter, consult, edit, remove your Personal Data at any time. Removal of certain data (e.g. your e-mail address) may prevent us from continuing to deliver any service at all to you, while removal of other data (e.g. your mobile phone number) may only prevent us from delivering ancillary services to you.
We never share your data with any third party, unless that's implicitly required for the very use of it (e.g. e-mail to send you e-mails).
You may remove all data associated with your account at any time, from your User Account. If you lost and can no longer recover your login data (e.g. because you lost access to your indicated e-mail address) we can remove the data for you.
In the latter case – because alteration or discontinuation of DNS may have catastrophic impact on an organization – BuddyNS must take extra measures to ensure your authenticity. We typically require you to prove your control over your claimed account in some way. Please understand the extra effort on our side to ensure your safety form hijackers.
BuddyNS collects the following items of Personal Data.
|E-mail address||Authenticate you; issue notifications||Team|
|Domain name data||Replicate your domain||Team, public in the DNS system|
|Mobile Phone Number||(optional) Issue emergency notifications||Team, Mobile gateway|
|Billing data||Generate invoices||Team|
|IP address||Breach response, forensics||Team, resolved only upon security breach (never happened)|
