WHOIS Contact Details update for Top Level Domain Name

Starting from December 1, 2016, ICANN started enforcing a new "Domain Transfer Policy" that modifies the process of changing domain ownership from one registrant to another. 

Every time a change of registrant takes place, the policy is called upon and a series of confirmation and approval emails are triggered. What’s important to note is that simple updates to a registrant’s first name, last name, organization and email address on a particular domain also triggers the same slew of notification and confirmation emails.

(1) Please DO NOT proceed with any Whois contact details update if you are planning to transfer your domain name away from us (Exabytes) because it will trigger a 60 days Domain Transfer Locked where your domain name will be locked down completely by registry for 60 days.
(2) Please DO NOT proceed with any Whois contact details update if your current registrant contact Email is No Longer Valid.

Any statement as above is applied to your condition? If yes, kindly contact us at domain@exabytes.com for assistance on your Whois contact details update instead.
