Collection

Is it clear why the service collects the personal data that it does? Yes

10/10

Decided May 22, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

This question deals with transparency. Even if the service uses data for reasons that aren't ideal for privacy, provided they list all of those uses, the service can still receive full credit for this question. However, if they are not explicit about their uses (by employing language like "such as"), a lower score is assigned.

Citation

In obtaining consent, Enom shall use reasonable efforts to ensure that a customer is advised of the identified purposes for which personal information collected will be used or disclosed. Purposes shall be stated in a manner that can be reasonably understood by the customer or employee. Generally, Enom shall seek consent to use and disclose personal information at the same time it collects the information. However, Enom may seek consent to use and disclose personal information after it has been collected but before it is used or disclosed for a new purpose. Enom will only require customers to consent to the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information as a condition to the supply of a product or service if such collection, use, or disclosure is required to fulfill the identified purposes. In determining the appropriate form of consent, Enom shall take into account the sensitivity of the personal information and the reasonable expectations of its customers. Unless required by contract, Enom will obtain express consent within a reasonable period after obtaining the data and prior to using the data. A customer may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal, regulatory, or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. For example, if consent is required to perform the service requested by the customer, withdrawal of consent may result in termination of the service. Customers may contact Enom at the address below for more information regarding the implications of doing so.

Does the service allow third-party access to private personal data? Yes, not all parties specified

0/10

Decided May 22, 2020 (revision history). This question accounts for 12% of the final score.

The policy allows sharing personal data with third-parties (not just critical service providers), and does not explicitly list the third-parties.

This may come in the form of outright data sharing or by using local third-party analytics software (such as Google Analytics, which collects a plethora of user information).

Note that whether the policy allows sharing aggregated user data does not affect this question.

If the personal data is encrypted when it passes through the third-party, it does not count as third-party access (as the data is inaccessible to that party).

If personal data has been made public by, for example, posting it to a blog, it does not count as private personal information (and is therefore not considered by this question).

Yes, all parties specified (including non-critical service providers such as advertisers)3/10
