How do we use your information?
We may use and share your personal information in order to provide the services requested. For example, your information may be provided to the domain registrar in order to process domain registrations, or with the relevant certificate authority to order an SSL certificate on your behalf. We will also share your information to the extent necessary to comply with ICANN’s rules, regulations, and policies, and if your domains are not set to private registration, the publicly available WHOIS registry will contain personal information, including but not limited to your title, first name, surname, domain name, e-mail address, country, and phone number.
Believersgist is required to supply some of your personal data in order to request an SSL certificate from the certificate authority. By submitting a request for an SSL certificate order or renewal through Believersgist, you consent to Believersgist releasing all required personal information to the certificate authority in order to fulfill the request and you acknowledge and understand that Believersgist acts only as an intermediary between the customer and the certificate authority, in order to facilitate the order or renewal of the certificate.
