Nope uou misunderstand this process.
*They* do not flag anything.
The registrant or registrant's agent agrees to Nominents 'consumer/
(used to be called individual)' opt out mechanism in the TaC when they
sign the agreement
I myself use it on one of my domains, which is a consumer and none
commercial site. I had to agree to a contract that I was in fact an
individual and that I wanted to opt out. It's not automated and is open
to abuse because anyone can lie and say they are an individual.
THE REGISTRANT IS AN INDIVIDUAL "WHO HAS ELECTED [*Note Bien*]" TO
HAVE THEIR ADDRESS OMITTED FROM THE WHOIS DATABASE
