Need a #Brazilian? New data protection law to stun public info with #LGPD

If you were already sick of the GDPR that decimated WHOIS records since its implementation two years ago, Brazil will add its own twist to the data samba.

The “Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados” is the Brazilian version of the GDPR with the acronym LGPD. No, it’s not related to LGBT.

The privacy law is deemed erious enough by Google to give it special notice:

The Brazillian LGPD (Lei Geral de Proteção de Dados) is a new data privacy law that will apply to businesses (both inside and outside Brazil) that process the personal data of users located in Brazil. The new law is expected to go into effect on August 16th, 2020, but ongoing discussions in the Brazilian government may result in a change to the effective date.

Google already offers data protection terms under the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). We will be updating those existing data protection terms to add LGPD-specific terms. Google’s status under the LGPD as either a controller or processor for each product will be the same as under the GDPR. The LGPD terms will be incorporated into our existing data protection terms, so no action is required to accept the LGPD terms where the existing data protection terms already form part of your contract. For more information on our data protection terms, and products where action is required to accept them see here.

In addition to the updated LGPD terms, we plan to offer product controls to assist our customers with their LGPD compliance. You can refer to this article for more information on relevant product features to assist with your LGPD compliance. If you believe you may be in scope of the LGPD, we recommend that you work with your legal advisors to assess whether any changes are required.

Brazilian domain investors will most likely cringe by the amount of information that will be removed from WHOIS info storage tools such as DomainTools.

    There are some mistakes in this regard!

    1º) WHOIS is the RDAP for .BR ccTLD domains, still available.

    It is possible to consult data, such as e-mail, CPF (document for Brazilian individuals) or CNPJ (document for Brazilian organizations) and e-mail. informs you about domains such as, and etc …

    Also in the WHOIS of the .BR ccTLD, it is possible to verify who was the first registrant of a domain even if it is sold and has a new registrant.
