Dear Sir or Madam,

On 28 November 2018, the Association of the Internet Industry eco e.V. in
Cologne granted the eco Award 2018 to the Data Escrow Service of the
Registry for .de Domains. The prize-winning DENIC service offers an
unprecedented backup option for domain data in Europe.

Companies with a promising future, products that create added value and
innovative ideas in the Internet industry are assessed every year by the jury
of scientists, industry experts and trade journalists that decides who will
be granted the coveted eco Award. In the "Domains" category, it was DENIC
eG who convinced the jury this year. What is so special about DENIC's
prize-winning escrow solution? By choosing DENIC as their escrow provider,
customers are enabled to comply with their escrow obligations under European
law. It is in particular the combination of computer centers located in
Europe as the only place for storing the data and the freedom to choose the
place of jurisdiction and arbitration within Europe that make the DENIC
Data Escrow Service unique. To become an accredited escrow provider, DENIC
has successfully passed the multi-stage accreditation process of the
US-American supervisory authority ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned
Names and Numbers).

Award Confirms Added Value for Domain Industry
The accreditation by ICANN authorises DENIC to provide data escrow services
for registrars and registry operators of generic Top Level Domains
(gTLDs). In addition to that, DENIC is a Designated Escrow Agent for
registrars. This means that ICANN-accredited registrars can use DENIC's escrow
services free of charge, financed by ICANN. "The eco Award confirms that our
commitment to creating a strictly European escrow solution for the domain
industry provides real added value," said DENIC CCO Andreas Musielak. The
marketing of the escrow services is performed by DENIC's wholly-owned
subsidiary DENIC Services GmbH & Co. KG, which specialises in optimal
customer service.

ICANN Requires Obligatory Escrowing of Domain Data
The described escrow obligation is based on requirements imposed by ICANN:
The Internet Corporation requests all registrars and registries it has
accredited to regularly store the data sets of the domains managed by them
with an independent escrow provider. In the event that a registrar or
registry should no longer be able to provide its domain services, ICANN can
appoint a party who will continue business operations on the basis of the
stored data.

DENIC Initiative ID4me a Second Candidate in the Final Round
With the Single Sign-On solution ID4me, another development of DENIC was
nominated as one of the three candidates of the final round in the "Domains"
category. ID4me gives Internet users full control over their digital identity
and enables them to govern the use of their personal data. Unlike other
Single Sign-On solutions, ID4me uses only open standards. DENIC is one of the
initiators of ID4me and has made an inaugural contribution to the
technical development of the domain-based application. For the advancement
and propagation of the Internet identity application, the non-profit
organisation ID4me AISBL was founded. To learn more about ID4me, go to

The renowned Internet award has been granted since 1999. Ever since, the

forward-looking businesses and projects every year. For further information
