Abstract

This RFC is a near-verbatim copy of a document, known as NADF-265,

which has been produced by the North American Directory Forum (NADF).

User Bill of Rights

for entries and listings

in the Public Directory

The mission of the North American Directory Forum is to provide

interconnected electronic directories which empower users with

unprecedented access to public information. To address significant

security and privacy issues, the North American Directory Forum

introduces the following "User Bill of Rights" for entries in the

Public Directory. As a user, you have:

I. The right not to be listed.

II. The right to have you or your agent informed when

your entry is created.

III. The right to examine your entry.

IV. The right to correct inaccurate information in your

entry.

V. The right to remove specific information from your

entry.

VI. The right to be assured that your listing in the

Public Directory will comply with US or Canadian law

regulating privacy or access information.

VII. The right to expect timely fulfillment of these rights.

Scope of Intent - User Bill of Rights

The North American Directory Forum is a collection of service

providers that plan to offer a cooperative directory service in North

America. This is achieved by interconnecting electronic directories

using a set of internationally developed standards known as the CCITT

X.500 series.

In this context, the "Directory" represents the collection of

electronic directories administered by both service providers and

private operators. When an entry containing information about a user

is listed in the Directory, that information can be accessed unless

restricted by security and privacy controls.

A portion of the Directory -- The Public Directory -- contains

information for public dissemination. In contrast, other portions of

the Directory may contain information not intended for public access.

A user or user's agent may elect to list information in the Public

Directory, a private directory, or some combination. For example, a

user might publicly list a telephone number or an electronic mail

address, and might designate other information for specific private

use.

The User Bill of Rights pertains to the Public Directory.
