Do web hosts tend to have clear policies with regard to disclosure of customer information? To what extent is the law clear about that?
I am about to build a website for someone who has been harassed using contact information from the whois record of their domain name. I know some registrars offer means to protect this information. But is there any chance a web hosting company will disclose the identity of customers when the demand isn't coming from a court or some other authority to which one is obliged to provide this information?
