LaneChange.net Protects Domain Name Registrants with New Privacy Service

LaneChange.net Protects Domain Name Registrants with New Privacy Service










Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) June 2, 2005

LaneChange.Net, a complete Internet services solutions provider, announces a new privacy service that protects the identity of domain name owners by replacing publicly accessible registrant data with generic contact information thereby making it more difficult for Spammers, telemarketers and other undesirable third parties to capture private domain owner information.

The Whois Privacy Service replaces existing owner contact information with generic information that directs inquiries to a special web site which then captures legitimate contact requests and forwards them to the real domain owner. Owners retain full control over their domains at all times, avoid exposure to excessive Spam, telephone or letter mail marketing and are alerted to contact requests.

“When someone registers a domain name, sensitive information such as the owner’s name, address, phone number and email address are placed in a publicly accessible database known as the Whois Database,” said Robert Schwartz, President of LaneChange.net. “This information is often accessed by Spammers, telemarketers or others and used for undesirable and sometimes illegal purposes. With this new service, domain name owners can now protect their sensitive personal contact information and retain complete control over their domain name for a minimal annual cost of $ 5.99 per year.”

The Whois Privacy Service is available for the following top level domains: .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .cc and .tv for clients with domain names registered through LaneChange.net. Whois Privacy Service is available to all domain owners by transferring domains to LaneChange.net.

NSF Davis Fresh Changes Name to NSF Agriculture

NSF Davis Fresh, a unit of NSF International, has changed its name to NSF Agriculture to more accurately reflect new services that include GlobalGAP certification and food safety services for livestock, poultry and egg production operations.

A long-time provider of food safety services for the perishable and produce industry in the U.S. and Latin America, NSF Agriculture recently implemented new programs that include expanded GlobalGAP certification, as well as food safety, quality, animal welfare, organic and sustainable agriculture auditing, and certification for livestock, poultry and egg producers.

NSF Agriculture also pioneered the first-of-its-kind Local Farm Assurance program to help national retailers, distributors and foodservice companies source locally-grown food products. It does so by providing small, local food producers with a cost-effective way to improve their food safety systems and demonstrate compliance with national and global food safety standards and regulations.

NSF Agriculture also is expanding its services by hiring additional regional food safety experts and auditors who can provide more localized food safety and quality services. These changes have been led by NSF Agriculture President Dr. Donna Garren, former Vice President of Food Safety Programs for The Consumer Goods Forum.

“NSF Agriculture’s expansion into new food sectors and regions of North and South America bridges the gap in NSF’s global food safety services and provides growers, processors, distributors, retailers and foodservice operators a global network of localized food safety services,” said Dr. Donna Garren, President and General Manager of NSF Agriculture. “The addition of more regional food safety experts and auditors also will enable NSF Agriculture to provide more localized food safety and quality services.”

By working closely with other members of the NSF International family of companies, NSF Agriculture is able to provide food safety solutions on a global scale. NSF Agriculture is part of NSF International’s Global Food Safety Division, which offers a total food safety solution to growers, processors, distributors, retailers and food-service operators, as well as food equipment manufacturers, around the world.

NSF International has been a global leader in food safety auditing and certification services for more than 66 years. In 2010, NSF International provided food safety solutions to more than 28,000 customers worldwide and became the global leader in Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Good Harvesting Practices (GHP) audits, and certification to Global Food Safety Initiative*-benchmarked standards including British Retail Consortium (BRC), Safe Quality Foods (SQF) and GlobalGAP.

Other NSF food safety services include: NSF Foodservice Equipment certification; food safety and quality auditing and certification through NSF Agriculture, NSF Cook & Thurber and NSF-CMi; Global Food Safety Standards Certification (SQF, BRC, GlobalGAP, FSSC, IFS, Dutch HACCP); NSF Restaurant and Supermarket Food Safety programs; Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), Aquaculture Certification Council (ACC), HACCP validation and inspection through NSF Surefish Seafood Safety; bottled water/flavored beverage quality certification; organic certification through Quality Assurance International (QAI), and food safety education through NSF Education and Training.
