Can you Spot the Privacy Flaw?

Will my name and contact information be publicly available when I register a domain?
Domain Names

When you register a domain name, your contact information is recorded in the WHOIS database and becomes publicly available. Your information is made public in order to allow rapid resolution of technical problems and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark, and other laws.

In order to protect your private contact information, you can get the ID Protect service. This feature allows you to hide your data, while the WHOIS company provides its contact information (and a fake email address) to replace your own. The ID Protect service protects you from spammers, unsolicited marketing and identity theft – problems quite common over the Internet. SiteGround offers ID Protect for domains registered by SiteGround for $24 per year. You can order it from your Customer’s Area.

Thanks SiteGround for offering this but why in the world should this be available to the public in the first place? Law enforcement is a lousy reason if someone can steal my info! Remind me to get this ID Protect when I sign up with them!
