Person and role objects contain information about people. Each object has a unique NIC handle (nic-hdl). You can create person and role objects using webupdates ( insert: <a class="external-link" title="" href="https://apps.db.ripe.net/webupdates" target="_self"> insert: <span class="external-link"> https://www.ripe.net/webupdates insert: </span> insert: </a> ). insert: </p>

Maintainers protect objects in the RIPE Whois database. They contain the information needed to authorise creation, deletion or modification of these objects. You can create maintainers using the Maintainer Editor ( insert: <a href="https://lirportal.ripe.net"> https://lirportal.ripe.net insert: </a> ). insert: </p>

insert: <p>

We will send an email to the email address in the " insert: <span class="pre"> notify: insert: </span> " field every time the allocation object is updated. insert: </p>
