A reminder on the proper use of APNIC data
The APNIC Secretariat respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you provide.
It has come to the APNIC Secretariat's attention that a nominee for the upcoming Executive Council (EC) election has sent emails to a number of people associated with APNIC. Concerns have been expressed by some of the email recipients that their email addresses should only be used in the APNIC Whois Database and not anywhere else.
Please be aware that the APNIC Secretariat plays a neutral role in EC elections and does not provide any contact information about APNIC members to any EC nominee.

2. Use of mailing list subscription lists
The information gathered by subscription procedures is used only in the mailing lists you specify.
The APNIC privacy statement is linked from every page of the APNIC website.
In addition, it is against the laws of privacy in some countries to use email addresses for purposes other than what the subscribers originally intended.
