As of May 25th 2018, most european and all generic domain types (top level domains) have redacted their amount of Whois data which is published to the internet to comply
to the european data privacy regulation (GDPR).
However, the registrant data still has to be sent to the registries. And there are still top level domains which do require the full set of Whois data, and do publish this full set.
The use of incorrect, incomplete or fake data is a violation of the registration agreement of the related registry and IDPS GmbH, and may lead to the deletion of the related domain name (please also see 5.c/11.d of Joker.com T&C).
To protect a registrant from abuse of his data for domains which do not comply the the european data privacy regulation,
proxy-privacy.com through IDPS GmbH provides privacy protection services,
effectively shielding your personal data and keeping it confidential. By using these services, the registrant is represented by alternate contact data
provided by IDPS GmbH, while remaining compliant to the registration policies. The registrant's own data will still be maintained and escrowed by Joker.com,
to secure the registrant's ownership of the domain, and ensure the compliance to ICANN's and registry's policies.
By the use of these services, the registrant is protected against most common forms of abuse like outlined below.

If you activate WHOIS privacy for your domains, private data like your address and email will no longer be publicly visible. You will still receive important emails, because the privacy service will provide an anonymized email address for publication. With privacy pro, also your name will not be visible. This is how your WHOIS data will look like for domain type which do not comply to the european data protection regulation:
