Application Details

The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18:

"Specialty – Fiat Industrial SpA is a global leader in the capital goods sector. Each of the Groupʹs businesses is a major international player in its respective industry sector: Iveco, Case, Case IH, New Holland and FPT Industrial (not subject to TLD request). These three sectors design, produce and sell trucks, commercial vehicles, buses, special vehicles (Iveco), tractors, and agricultural and construction equipment (Case, Case IH and New Holland), in addition to engines and transmissions for those vehicles and engines for marine applications (FPT Industrial: not subject to TLD request).. In the course of its business with customers and other business partners, highly-sensitive, personal and confidential information is collected and shared between authorized parties. To further demonstrate Fiat Industrial SpA’s commitment and market leadership in the area of data security and privacy within its industry, Fiat Industrial SpA intends to utilize the .case gTLD to create a restricted, exclusively-controlled online environment for customers and other business partners with the goal of further securing the collection and transmission of personal and other confidential data required for contracted services and other product-related activities.


Fiat Industrial SpA plans to operate the proposed .case gTLD as a restricted, exclusively-controlled TLD and as such, will not be commercially offered for registration by the general public.  Thus, Fiat Industrial SpA and affiliated entities will have exclusive ownership and control over all second-level registrations within the TLD."[4]
