Dear John Levine,

Thank you for your patience while ICANN processed your ‘Whois Data Problem Report’ concerning the domain name saite.com.

Based on the current Whois data and the sponsoring registrar’s response to ICANN, the registrar has demonstrated that it has taken reasonable steps to investigate the Whois inaccuracy claim, and where necessary, has taken corrective actions.  Accordingly, ICANN considers this matter closed.

However, if you have reason to believe that the registrar may not be fulfilling its obligations, please forward your copy of this e-mail, along with any other relevant information, to ICANN Contractual Compliance at compliance at icann.org.  ICANN will review your submission and work with the registrar to ensure compliance.

Thank you again for taking the time to help improve Whois accuracy by submitting your report.
