5.4 There is a minimum term (Initial Term) to the Services. The Initial Term will commence when you accept our proposal. If you select the monthly payment option, you will be required to pay an upfront set-up fee and a monthly subscription fee for each month of the Initial Term. If you select the up-front payment option, you will be required to pay the set-up fee and the whole of the subscription fees at the commencement of the Initial Term. The fees that are payable to us for the Initial Term are the Total Contract Value.

5.5 If you have selected the monthly payment option, at the completion of the Initial Term, your service will roll into a month to month service. If you have selected the upfront payment option, your service will roll into a further term of the same length as the Initial Term.

If you prefer, you may provide us with your own content. If you do so, you are solely responsible for ensuring that the content you supply complies with all applicable laws and does not infringe the rights of any third party. We reserve the right to refuse to use any content that breaches our Acceptable Use Policy.

7. DOMAIN NAME DISPUTE POLICY.

8. DOMAIN NAME DISPUTES. You acknowledge having read and understood and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the following documents, as they may be amended from time to time, which are hereby incorporated and made an integral part of this Agreement:

(i) The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (Dispute Policy), available at https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/policy-2012-02-25-en; and

(ii) The Restrictions Dispute Resolution Criteria and Rules (RDRP), available at http://www.icann.org/resources/pages/rdrp-2012-02-25-en; (collectively, Dispute Policies).

The UDRP sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between a registrant of a .biz, .org or .info domain name with any third party (other than registry administrator or registrar) over the registration or the use of a .biz, .org or .info domain name registered by that registrant. The RDRP sets forth the terms under which any allegation that a domain name is not used primarily for business or commercial purposes shall be enforced on a case-by-case, fact specific basis by an independent ICANN-accredited dispute provider. None of the violations of the restrictions will be enforced directly by or through the Registry (or its administrator). The Registry will not review, monitor, or otherwise verify that any particular domain name is being used primarily for business or commercial purposes or that a domain name is being used in compliance with the UDRP processes.

9. POLICY. You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any Registrar, Registry, ICANN or government-adopted policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure (consistent with any ICANN or government-adopted policy), (1) to correct mistakes by us or the applicable Registry in registering the name and/or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.

10. AGENCY. Should you intend to license use of a domain name to a third party you shall nonetheless be the domain name holder of record and are therefore responsible for providing your own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name. You shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the domain name, however such liability may be limited through the prompt disclosure of the identity of such third party licensee to the party who has provided reasonable evidence of actionable harm or made the allegation. You shall also remain liable for the use of that domain name by any such third party, notwithstanding any agreements between yourself and such third party / parties. You represent that you have provided notice of the terms and conditions in this Agreement to a third party licensee and that the third party agrees to the terms of this Agreement in full (including without limitation, clauses 16 (Information) and 17 (Disclosure and Use Of Registration Information) below).

11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the amount you paid for such Services. Neither we nor our contractors or third party beneficiaries shall be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages (including without limitation any loss of profits) resulting from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for the cost of procurement of substitute services or otherwise, regardless of the form of action whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages or liability. Because some countries and jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such countries and jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the maximum extent permitted by law. Subject always to the previous sentence, we will not be responsible for or accept any loss or liability suffered by any party resulting from, but not limited to: (1) access delays or access interruptions to the Services or our systems; (2) data non-delivery or data miss-delivery; (3) acts of God (or force majeure); (4) the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password; (5) errors, omissions, or misstatements in any and all information or services(s) provided under this Agreement; (6) the interruption of your Services or your business; and/or (7) loss of registration and/or use of your domain name.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

In the event that this agreement constitutes a supply of goods or services to a consumer as defined in the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) or any other national, State or Territory legislation (the Acts) nothing contained in this agreement excludes, restricts or modifies any condition, warranty or other obligation in relation to this agreement and the goods and you where to do so is unlawful.

Where legislation implies into this Agreement any term or warranty that cannot lawfully be excluded, that term or warranty is included but our liability in respect of a breach of that term or warranty is, where permitted by such legislation, limited at our option to any one or more of the following:

(a) if the breach relates to goods:

(i) the replacement of the goods or the supply of equivalent goods;

(ii) the repair of such goods;

(iii) the payment of the cost of replacing the goods or of acquiring equivalent goods; or

(iv) the payment of the cost of having the goods repaired; and

(b) if the breach relates to services:

(i) the supplying of the services again; or

(ii) the payment of the cost of having the services supplied again.

12. INDEMNITY.

You also agree to release, indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. When we are threatened with suit by a third party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your failure to provide those assurances shall be a breach of your Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name. This indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of this agreement.

13. BREACH. You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement, any operating rule or policy or the Dispute Policy provided by us, may be considered by us to be a material breach and that we may provide a written notice, describing the breach, to you. If within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of such notice, you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to us, that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement or have remedied the breach identified to you, then we may terminate this Agreement and delete the registration or reservation of your domain name. Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or any other breach by you.

14. NO GUARANTEE. You acknowledge that registration or reservation of your chosen domain name does not confer immunity from objection to either the registration, reservation, or use of the domain name. Further, you agree that neither a pre-registration application nor a registration of a domain name grants any legal rights of ownership of the relevant domain name.

15. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. You agree that your use of our Services is solely at your own risk. You agree that such Services are provided on an "as is," "as available" basis.

17. DISCLOSURE AND USE OF REGISTRATION INFORMATION. You agree and acknowledge that we will make domain name registration information you provide available to ICANN, to the registry administrators, and to other third parties as applicable. You further agree and acknowledge that we may make publicly available, or directly available to third party vendors, some, or all, of the domain name registration information you provide, for purposes of inspection (such as through our WHOIS service) or other purposes as required or permitted by ICANN and applicable laws.

You hereby consent to any and all such disclosures and use of information provided by you in connection with the registration of a domain name (including any updates to such information), whether during or after the term of your registration of the domain name.

We will take reasonable precautions to protect the information we obtain from you from our loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of that information.

18. REVOCATION.

In the event we do not register or reserve your domain name or register you for other Services, or we delete your domain name or other Services within such thirty (30) calendar day period, we agree to refund your applicable fee(s).

If any term or provision is declared invalid or unenforceable, that term or provision will be construed consistent with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining terms and provisions will remain in full force and effect.

21. NON-AGENCY. Nothing contained in this Agreement or the Dispute Policies shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties.

22. NON-WAIVER. Our failure to require performance by you of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by us of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

You acknowledge that, pursuant to the Dispute Policy, registrars must comply with all reasonable requests from the applicable domain name dispute resolution institutions including the provision of all relevant evidence in any domain name disputes in the specified time frames. If we are notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your use of our domain name registration services, you agree not to make any changes to your domain name record without our prior approval. We may not allow you to make changes to such domain name record until (i) we are directed to do so by the judicial or administrative body, or (ii) we receive notification by you and the other party contesting your registration and use of our domain name registration services that the dispute has been settled. Furthermore, you agree that if you are subject to litigation regarding your registration and use of our domain name registration services, we may deposit control of your domain name record into the registry of the judicial body by supplying a party with a registrar certificate from us.

10. DOMAIN NAME DISPUTE POLICY MODIFICATIONS. You acknowledge that the Dispute Policy may be modified from time to time. Any such revised policy on our web site at least fourteen (14) calendar days before it becomes effective. You agree that, by maintaining the registration of your domain name after modifications to the Dispute Policy become effective, you have agreed to these modifications. You acknowledge that if you do not agree to any such modification, you may terminate this Agreement. We will not refund any fees paid by you if you terminate your Agreement with us.

11. SUSPENSION AND CANCELLATION. You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any Registrar, Registry Operator, CNNIC or government-adopted policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure (consistent with a CNNIC or government-adopted policy), (1) to correct mistakes by a party in registering the name, (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name, (3) to protect the integrity and stability of the registry, (4) to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement, (5) to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of Registrar, Registry Operator or CNNIC, as well as their affiliates, subsidiaries, directors, representatives, employees and stockholders or (6) for violations of this Agreement. Registrar, Registry Operator and CNNIC also reserve the right to "freeze" a domain name during the resolution of a dispute.

12. AGENCY. Should you intend to license use of a domain name to a third party you shall nonetheless be the domain name holder of record and are therefore responsible for providing your own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name. You shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the domain name, however such liability may be limited through the prompt disclosure of the identity of such third party licensee to the party who has provided reasonable evidence of actionable harm or made the allegation. You shall also remain liable for the use of that domain name by any such third party, notwithstanding any agreements between yourself and such third party / parties. You represent that you have provided notice of the terms and conditions in this Agreement to a third party licensee and that the third party agrees to the terms of this Agreement in full (including without limitation, clauses 20 (Information) and 21 (Disclosure and Use Of Registration Information) below).

13. ANNOUNCEMENTS. We reserve the right to distribute information to you that is pertinent to the quality or operation of our services and those of our service partners. These announcements will be predominately informative in nature and may include notices describing changes, upgrades, new products or other information to add security or to enhance your identity on the Internet.

14. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the amount you paid for such Services. Neither we nor our contractors or third party beneficiaries shall be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages (including without limitation any loss of profits) resulting from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for the cost of procurement of substitute services or otherwise, regardless of the form of action whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages or liability. Because some countries and jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such countries and jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the maximum extent permitted by law. Subject always to the previous sentence, we will not responsible for or accept any loss or liability suffered by any party resulting from, but not limited to: (1) access delays or access interruptions to the Services or our systems; (2) data non-delivery or data miss-delivery; (3) acts of God (or force majeure); (4) the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password; (5) errors, omissions, or misstatements in any and all information or services(s) provided under this Agreement; (6) the interruption of your Services or your business; and/or (7) loss of registration and/or use of your domain. In no event shall our maximum liability exceed five hundred ($500.00) dollars.

15. INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold each of us, the Registrar, the Registry Operator, CNNIC and each of their respective contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors, affiliates and third party beneficiaries harmless from all claims, liabilities, damages (whether direct or indirect) costs and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses), arising out of or relating to your domain name, domain name registration, renewal or pre-registration, or to your use of the domain name. You also agree to release, indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. When we are threatened with suit by a third party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your failure to provide those assurances shall be a breach of your Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name. This indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of this agreement.

16. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. The person named as registrant on the WHOIS shall be the registered name holder. The person named as administrative contact at the time the controlling user name and password are secured shall be deemed the designate of the registrant with the authority to manage the domain name. You agree that prior to transferring ownership of your domain name to another person (the Transferee ) you shall require the Transferee to agree in writing to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your domain name may not be transferred until we receive such written assurances or other reasonable assurance that the Transferee has been bound by the contractual terms of this Agreement (such reasonable assurance as determined by us in our sole discretion) along with the applicable transfer fee. If the Transferee fails to be bound in a reasonable fashion (as determine by us in our sole discretion) to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void. You acknowledge that you will not be entitled to change registrars during the first sixty (60) days following the registration of your domain name.

17. BREACH. You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement may be considered by us to be a material breach and that we may provide a written notice, describing the breach, to you. If you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to us, that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement or have remedied the breach identified to you, then we may terminate this Agreement and delete the registration or reservation of your domain name. Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or any other breach by you.

18. NO GUARANTEE. You acknowledge that registration or reservation of your chosen domain name does not confer immunity from objection to either the registration, reservation, or use of the domain name. Further, you agree that neither a pre-registration application nor a registration of a domain name grants any legal rights of ownership of the relevant domain name.

19. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. You agree that your use of our Services is solely at your own risk. You agree that such Services are provided on an "as is", "as available" basis.

We make no warranty that the Services will meet your requirements, or that the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free; nor do we make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from the use of the Services or as to the accuracy or reliability of any information obtained through the Services or that defects in the Services will be corrected.

No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through the Service shall create any warranty not expressly made herein.

You hereby consent to any and all such disclosures and use of information provided by you in connection with the registration of a domain name (including any updates to such information), whether during or after the term of your registration of the domain name. You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of your domain name registration information by us. You may access your domain name registration information in our possession to review, modify or update such information, by accessing our domain manager service, or similar service, made available by us. Any information collected by us concerning an identified or identifiable natural person ( Personal Data ) will be used in connection with the registration of your domain name(s) and for the purposes of this Agreement and as required or permitted by CNNIC, Registry Operator policy or pursuant to any applicable laws and regulations. The parties shall take commercially reasonable steps to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction. Neither Registrar nor Registry Operator make any representations as to how CNNIC uses, accesses or corrects any Personal Data it receives from the Registry Operator.

22. INACCURATE OR UNRELIABLE DATA. You hereby represent and warrant that the data provided in the domain name registration application is true, correct, up to date and complete and that you will continue to keep all the information provided up to date. Your wilful or negligent provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, your wilful failure promptly to update information provided to us, or any failure to respond to inquiries by us addressed to the email address of the registrant, the administrative, billing or technical contact appearing in the "Whois" directory with respect to a domain name concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the registration shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and be a basis for cancellation of the domain name registration. No refunds shall be made if a domain name is deleted as a result of enforcement of this provision.

23. RIGHT OF REFUSAL. We, and/or Registry Operator, in our sole discretion, reserve the right to refuse to register or reserve your chosen domain name or register you for other Services.

You agree that we shall not be liable to you for loss or damages that may result from our refusal to register, reserve, or delete your domain name or register you for other Services. We reserve the right to delete or transfer your domain name following registration if we believe the registration has been made possible by a mistake, made either by us or by a third party. We also reserve the right to suspend a domain name during resolution of a dispute.

24. SEVERABILITY. You agree that the terms of this Agreement are severable. If any term or provision is declared invalid or unenforceable, that term or provision will be construed consistent with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining terms and provisions will remain in full force and effect.

25. NON-AGENCY. Nothing contained in this Agreement or the Dispute Policies shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties.

26. NON-WAIVER. Our failure to require performance by you of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by us of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

23. NON-AGENCY. Nothing contained in this Agreement or the Dispute Policy shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties.

24. NON-WAIVER. Our failure to require performance by you of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by us of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

UNIFORM DOMAIN NAME DISPUTE RESOLUTION POLICY (UDRP)

1. Purpose. This Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the Policy) has been adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), is incorporated by reference into your registration agreement with your registrar of record (Registration Agreement), and sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between you and any party other than us (the Registrar) over the registration and use of an Internet domain name registered by you. Proceedings under Paragraph 4 of this Policy will be conducted according to the Rules for Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the Rules of Procedure), which are available at www.icann.org/udrp/udrp.htm, and the selected administrative-dispute-resolution service provider's supplemental rules.

2. Your Representations. By applying to register a domain name, or by asking us to maintain or renew a domain name registration, you hereby represent and warrant to us that (a) the statements that you made in your Registration Agreement are complete and accurate; (b) to your knowledge, the registration of the domain name will not infringe upon or otherwise violate the rights of any third party; (c) you are not registering the domain name for an unlawful purpose; and (d) you will not knowingly use the domain name in violation of any applicable laws or regulations. It is your responsibility to determine whether your domain name registration infringes or violates someone else's rights.

3. Cancellations, Transfers, and Changes. We will cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to domain name registrations under the following circumstances: (a) subject to the provisions of Paragraph 8, our receipt of written or appropriate electronic instructions from you or your authorized agent to take such action; (b) our receipt of an order from a court or arbitral tribunal, in each case of competent jurisdiction, requiring such action; and/or (c) our receipt of a decision of an Administrative Panel requiring such action in any administrative proceeding to which you were a party and which was conducted under this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN (see Paragraph 4(i) and (k) below.) We may also cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to a domain name registration in accordance with the terms of your Registration Agreement or other legal requirements.

4. Mandatory Administrative Proceeding. This Paragraph sets forth the type of disputes for which you are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding. These proceedings will be conducted before one of the administrative-dispute-resolution service providers listed at www.icann.org/udrp/approved-providers.htm (each, a Provider).

(a) Applicable Disputes. You are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding in the event that a third party (a complainant) asserts to the applicable Provider, in compliance with the Rules of Procedure, that:

(i) your domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights; and

(ii) you have no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and

(iii) your domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith. In the administrative proceeding, the complainant must prove that each of these three elements are present.

(b) Evidence of Registration and Use in Bad Faith. For the purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(iii), the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be present, shall be evidence of the registration and use of a domain name in bad faith:

(i) circumstances indicating that you have registered or you have acquired the domain name primarily for the purpose of selling, renting, or otherwise transferring the domain name registration to the complainant who is the owner of the trademark or service mark or to a competitor of that complainant, for valuable consideration in excess of your documented out-of-pocket costs directly related to the domain name; or

(ii) you have registered the domain name in order to prevent the owner of the trademark or service mark from reflecting the mark in a corresponding domain name, provided that you have engaged in a pattern of such conduct; or

(iii) you have registered the domain name primarily for the purpose of disrupting the business of a competitor; or

(iv) by using the domain name, you have intentionally attempted to attract, for commercial gain, Internet users to your web site or other on-line location, by creating a likelihood of confusion with the complainant's mark as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your web site or location or of a product or service on your web site or location.

(c) How to Demonstrate Your Rights to and Legitimate Interests in the Domain Name in Responding to a Complaint. When you receive a complaint, you should refer to Paragraph 5 of the Rules of Procedure in determining how your response should be prepared. Any of the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be proved based on its evaluation of all evidence presented, shall demonstrate your rights or legitimate interests to the domain name for purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(ii):

(i) before any notice to you of the dispute, your use of, or demonstrable preparations to use, the domain name or a name corresponding to the domain name in connection with a bona fide offering of goods or services; or

(ii) you (as an individual, business, or other organization) have been commonly known by the domain name, even if you have acquired no trademark or service mark rights; or

(iii) you are making a legitimate non-commercial or fair use of the domain name, without intent for commercial gain to misleadingly divert consumers or to tarnish the trademark or service mark at issue.

(d) Selection of Provider. The complainant shall select the Provider from among those approved by ICANN by submitting the complaint to that Provider. The selected Provider will administer the proceeding, except in cases of consolidation as described in Paragraph 4(f).

(e) Initiation of Proceeding and Process and Appointment of Administrative Panel. The Rules of Procedure state the process for initiating and conducting a proceeding and for appointing the panel that will decide the dispute (the Administrative Panel).

(f) Consolidation. In the event of multiple disputes between you and a complainant, either you or the complainant may petition to consolidate the disputes before a single Administrative Panel. This petition shall be made to the first Administrative Panel appointed to hear a pending dispute between the parties. This Administrative Panel may consolidate before it any or all such disputes in its sole discretion, provided that the disputes being consolidated are governed by this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN.

(g) Fees. All fees charged by a Provider in connection with any dispute before an Administrative Panel pursuant to this Policy shall be paid by the complainant, except in cases where you elect to expand the Administrative Panel from one to three panellists as provided in Paragraph 5(b)(iv) of the Rules of Procedure, in which case all fees will be split evenly by you and the complainant.

(h) Our Involvement in Administrative Proceedings. We do not, and will not, participate in the administration or conduct of any proceeding before an Administrative Panel. In addition, we will not be liable as a result of any decisions rendered by the Administrative Panel.

(i) Remedies. The remedies available to a complainant pursuant to any proceeding before an Administrative Panel shall be limited to requiring the cancellation of your domain name or the transfer of your domain name registration to the complainant.

(j) Notification and Publication. The Provider shall notify us of any decision made by an Administrative Panel with respect to a domain name you have registered with us. All decisions under this Policy will be published in full over the Internet, except when an Administrative Panel determines in an exceptional case to redact portions of its decision.

(k) Availability of Court Proceedings. The mandatory administrative proceeding requirements set forth in Paragraph 4 shall not prevent either you or the complainant from submitting the dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction for independent resolution before such mandatory administrative proceeding is commenced or after such proceeding is concluded. If an Administrative Panel decides that your domain name registration should be cancelled or transferred, we will wait ten (10) business days (as observed in the location of our principal office) after we are informed by the applicable Provider of the Administrative Panel's decision before implementing that decision. We will then implement the decision unless we have received from you during that ten (10) business day period official documentation (such as a copy of a complaint, file-stamped by the clerk of the court) that you have commenced a lawsuit against the complainant in a jurisdiction to which the complainant has submitted under Paragraph 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure. (In general, that jurisdiction is either the location of our principal office or of your address as shown in our Whois database. See Paragraphs 1 and 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure for details.) If we receive such documentation within the ten (10) business day period, we will not implement the Administrative Panel's decision, and we will take no further action, until we receive:

(i) evidence satisfactory to us of a resolution between the parties;

(ii) evidence satisfactory to us that your lawsuit has been dismissed or withdrawn; or

(iii) a copy of an order from such court dismissing your lawsuit or ordering that you do not have the right to continue to use your domain name.

5. All Other Disputes and Litigation. All other disputes between you and any party other than us regarding your domain name registration that are not brought pursuant to the mandatory administrative proceeding provisions of Paragraph 4 shall be resolved between you and such other party through any court, arbitration or other proceeding that may be available.

6. Our Involvement in Disputes. We will not participate in any way in any dispute between you and any party other than us regarding the registration and use of your domain name. You shall not name us as a party or otherwise include us in any such proceeding. In the event that we are named as a party in any such proceeding, we reserve the right to raise any and all defences deemed appropriate, and to take any other action necessary to defend ourselves.

7. Maintaining the Status Quo. We will not cancel, transfer, activate, deactivate, or otherwise change the status of any domain name registration under this Policy except as provided in Paragraph 3 above.

8. Transfers During a Dispute.

(a) Transfers of a Domain Name to a New Holder. You may not transfer your domain name registration to another holder

(i) during a pending administrative proceeding brought pursuant to Paragraph 4 or for a period of fifteen (15) business days (as observed in the location of our principal place of business) after such proceeding is concluded; or

(ii) during a pending court proceeding or arbitration commenced regarding your domain name unless the party to whom the domain name registration is being transferred agrees, in writing, to be bound by the decision of the court or arbitrator. We reserve the right to cancel any transfer of a domain name registration to another holder that is made in violation of this subparagraph.

(b) Changing registrars. You may not transfer your domain name registration to another registrar during a pending administrative proceeding brought pursuant to Paragraph 4 or for a period of fifteen (15) business days (as observed in the location of our principal place of business) after such proceeding is concluded. You may transfer administration of your domain name registration to another registrar during a pending court action or arbitration, provided that the domain name you have registered with us shall continue to be subject to the proceedings commenced against you in accordance with the terms of this Policy. In the event that you transfer a domain name registration to us during the pendency of a court action or arbitration, such dispute shall remain subject to the domain name dispute policy of the registrar from which the domain name registration was transferred.

9. Policy Modifications. We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time with the permission of ICANN. We will post our revised Policy at least thirty (30) calendar days before it becomes effective. Unless this Policy has already been invoked by the submission of a complaint to a Provider, in which event the version of the Policy in effect at the time it was invoked will apply to you until the dispute is over, all such changes will be binding upon you with respect to any domain name registration dispute, whether the dispute arose before, on or after the effective date of our change. In the event that you object to a change in this Policy, your sole remedy is to cancel your domain name registration with us, provided that you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees you paid to us. The revised Policy will apply to you until you cancel your domain name registration.

.nz Domain Registrant Agreement

This agreement sets out the terms and conditions of your application for a domain name, and if successful, your domain name licence. It records the agreement between you, the applicant or holder of a domain name licence, and us, the registrar, in relation to the domain name.

You are bound by the terms of this document, even if you have entered into this document through an agent, and even if you licence the use of the domain name to another person.

1. The Registrar's Obligations

We agree that we will:

1.1 comply with all .nz policies and accurately represent these to you;

1.2 disclose accurately and completely all our terms and conditions associated with your use of our services to register and maintain a domain name sought to be used by you, including price and billing information;

1.3 comply with your lawful directions in a diligent and timely manner regarding your .nz domain name, (for example, registration, cancellation, amendment, deletion, and associated technical support and billing);

1.4 process any new .nz domain name registrations with the registry within 2 hours from the time we receive all the information required to complete a registration if it is within our advertised business hours of 8 am - 7 pm Monday-Friday, and otherwise within 24 hours;

1.5 notify you of the registration of your domain name(s), including the details of: the domain name, your own contact details, our contact details, the registration period, the unique authentication ID for your domain name and your obligations as a registrant;

1.6 arrange for correction of any error in the information in the register about any domain name registered to you when requested;

1.7 provide to you, or to someone we reasonably believe to be acting on your behalf, the unique authentication ID for your domain name when requested and for no charge;

1.8 use your personal information only as authorised by you.

2. The Registrant's Obligations

You agree that you will:

2.1 comply with the .nz policies. You agree that you have read and understood the current policies;

2.2 make sure all information you give us is accurate and complete, keep us informed of changes to any information you give us, and that you have the authority to enter into this agreement;

2.3 keep the unique authentication ID for your domain name and any other security information that we give to you confidential, safe and secure;

2.4 satisfy yourself that your use of a domain name will not infringe anybody's intellectual property rights and protect us, and everybody we are in any business relationship with to provide services to you, from any such claim;

2.5 ensure that you only use our services for a lawful purpose;

2.6 ensure that the use of any domain name registered to you does not interfere with other users of the Internet;

2.7 ensure that any order of any authority having jurisdiction regarding any domain name registered to you is complied with;

2.8 protect us, and everybody we have a business relationship with, against any legal action taken against us because of the receipt or use of our services by you or someone you are responsible for, including reliance by us or anybody we have a business relationship with, on information supplied by you.

Duties of Other Persons

2.9 You agree to make sure everyone you are responsible for or who uses a domain name registered to you also meets the above duties.

3. Registration of a Domain Name

3.1 Operation of the .nz domain name space requires the collection of information, including some personal information, from you. In order to have a domain name registered in your name, this information must be entered into the register (see clause 4 below for more details regarding the register).

3.2 By entering into this agreement, you consent to providing us with the following personal information ("personal information"):

  • name;
  • email;
  • address;
  • country; and
  • phone number.

3.3 While you have the right to withdraw your consent to providing us with your personal information, without this personal information we cannot perform our obligations under this agreement (including registering and maintaining a domain name for you) because:

  1. the personal information is necessary in order for your domain name to be recorded on the .nz register;
  2. we need to be able to contact you in relation to the administration of the domain name; and
  3. we are required by .nz policies to collect your personal information;

3.4 If you decide to transfer management of your domain name to another registrar, or if your domain name is cancelled, or if this agreement ends for any other reason, we will continue to store your personal information for a period of not less than 6 years for limitation and tax administration purposes.

3.5 You further agree that

  1. the domain name is registered in your name only because no other person has it according to the records of the register; and
  2. neither we nor anybody else is representing anything else to anybody regarding that domain name. The entry of a domain name in the Query Service shall not be taken as evidence of anything other than such registration; and
  3. you protect us and everybody we have a business relationship with to provide services to you, from any claim arising out of the domain name being registered in your name or as you direct.

4. Register and registry

4.1 The register is the authoritative database of .nz domain names and the details shown in the register is treated as the correct record. The register is operated by the registry branch of lnternetNZ ("registry").

4.2 In order to have a domain name, it is necessary that the registry store your personal information on the register.

4.3 When a domain name is no longer registered in your name, the registry will continue to store your personal information ("historical personal information"). Historical personal information may only be disclosed where authorised or required by New Zealand law.

4.4 To the extent GDPR applies, EU registrants have the right to object to the registry storing historical personal information and/or disclosing it as authorised or required by New Zealand law.

4.5 Despite clause 4.4, pursuant to Article 21 of GDPR, the registry maintains that it has compelling legitimate grounds for storing an historical auditable record of all domain names and disclosing historical personal information as authorised or required by New Zealand law. This is because without carrying out these functions, the integrity and operation of the register would be significantly undermined.

5. DNC

5.1 DNC is the entity which regulates the .nz domain name market space.

5.2 DNC provides a domain name registration data query service ("Query Service") (see section 21 of .nz Operations and Procedures policy for further details). Through the Query Service, the public is able to access the register with respect to a particular domain name from DNCL's website. Subject to the Individual Registrant Privacy Option ("IRPO") referred to in clause 5.7 below, in response to a Query, registrants' personal information will be available (along with the domain name, its commencement and expiry dates and addresses/details of the name servers for it, and our name).

5.3 When a name is cancelled it holds a pending release status. During the pending release period of 90 days from date of cancellation, a registrar may fully re-instate the domain name for the registrant, so that it becomes active again. This means that your personal information remains viewable on the Query Service for that 90 day period. Following the 90 day period when your name is released, your personal information will no longer be disclosed on the Query Service.

5.4 To the extent GDPR applies, EU registrants have the right to object to their personal information being made available through the Query Service. However, pursuant to Article 21 of GDPR, DNC maintains that it has compelling legitimate grounds for disclosing the personal information on the Query Service. This is because without the Query Service, the integrity of the .nz domain name space would be significantly undermined.

5.5 For the avoidance of doubt, by entering into this agreement, you hereby give consent to your personal information being made available on the Query Service.

5.6 To the extent GDPR applies, EU registrants have the right to withdraw their consent under clause 5.5. However, any withdrawal of consent is without prejudice to DNC's position that it has a legitimate interest in disclosing the personal information on the Query Service.

5.7 The IRPO is an optional feature available for individuals who are not using the domain name it is applied to in significant trade. If you are eligible and choose to use IRPO, your telephone number and contact address information will not be disclosed on the Query Service ("Withheld Data"). If you use your domain name for significant trade purposes you will not be eligible for the IRPO (see section 8 of .nz Operations and Procedures policy for further details).

5.8 Despite clause 5.7, Withheld Data may be released in the following circumstances:

  • Where applications are made by any person, entity or organisation who have established a legitimate need for the Withheld Data (see sections 22.2-22.22 of .nz Operations and Procedures policy);
  • Where disclosure is ordered by a court of competent jurisdiction or is required by any other order with the force of law (see sections 22.23-22.24 of .nz Operations and Procedures policy);
  • Where an entity has a Memorandum of Understanding with DNC, such that the entity has automatic access, or alternatively streamlined access, to the Withheld Data (see sections 22.25 to 22.40 of .nz Operations and Procedures policy).

5.9 To the extent that GDPR applies, EU registrants, who are eligible for the IRPO, have the right to object to Withheld Data being disclosed in the circumstances described in clause 5.8. However, pursuant to Article 21 of GDPR, DNC maintains that, based on the Privacy Act 1993 (or any substitute enactment) (and in particular Principle 11) it has compelling legitimate grounds to disclose Withheld Data on these circumstances.

6.Payment of Fees

6.1 You agree to pay for the services we provide for you.

6.2 If you transfer a domain name registered to you to another registrant or to be managed by another registrar, all charges owing to us shall become immediately due and payable on the date of that transfer.

6.3 We may alter our fees from time to time. When we alter them we will send you notice of the alteration 30 days before the new fee takes effect.

6.4 Our usual fees are for registration of .nz domains for one year. We may also charge for redirection, email, hosting or other related services provided by us. We will tell you before any additional charge is incurred.

6.5 Our prices are stated in Australian dollars and include GST.

7.Suspension And Refusal To Supply Services

If you do not pay our charges for a domain name registered to you we may:

  • cancel registration of that domain name; or
  • refuse to provide a service you request.

8. Cancellation of a Domain Name

If we are going to cancel the registration of a domain name registered to you as a result of you not paying our charges relating to that registration, we will give you fourteen days’ notice before we initiate action to cancel that domain name.

9. Exclusion of Liability

We exclude all liability we may have to you for any claim except where we have acted in bad faith. This exclusion also applies for the benefit of:

9.1 lnternetNZ, the registry and any other entity we are in any business relationship with;

9.2 every officer, employee, contractor, agent of us or any entity in clause 9.1;

9.3 anyone else we get to perform our duties under any agreement you have with us.

None of the persons specified above is liable or has to pay you for anything else in connection with or resulting from anything any of us does or does not do, or delays in doing, whether or not it is contemplated or authorised by any agreement you have with us.

This exclusion applies whatever you are claiming for and in whatever way liability might arise.

This exclusion does not prevent you getting a court order requiring us to do anything we have agreed to do for you and does not limit any rights you may have under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.

10. Limitation of our Liability

We have excluded all other liability we or any of the persons specified in clause 9 may have to you. If any of those persons is ever liable to you and, for any reason, cannot rely on the exclusion of liability set out in clause 9 then this clause applies.

Where this clause applies, the maximum combined amount the persons specified above (together) will have to pay you and anyone else who uses the services we provide for you (together) is the amount of the last month's fee paid by you under this agreement.

11. Law and Jurisdiction Applying to this Agreement

Unless we otherwise agree in writing, this agreement contains all the terms of our relationship and continues to apply no matter where you are located at the time any of the services are provided or where you reside. This will be the case until this agreement is cancelled except to the extent clause 15 says otherwise.

To the extent legally permitted:

11.1 all our services are provided under New Zealand law;

11.2 any claim or dispute arising out of or in connection with this agreement must be instituted within 60 days from the date the relevant service was supplied to you;

11.3 except as otherwise stated, you may take action against us only in a New Zealand court;

11.4 where you or any registrant for whom you act supplies incorrect information regarding a domain name and we incur cost in any matter concerning that name then we may recover the costs incurred by us from you;

11.5 In the event of a conflict between our general terms and conditions and that of this agreement, the terms of this agreement shall prevail.

12. Cancelling the Agreement

12.1 We may cancel or suspend this agreement by giving you one months’ notice if you do not meet your duties to us.

12.2 We may end the agreement for any other reason by giving you one month's notice.

13. More Than One Person

You are responsible for everybody whom you permit to act for you as a registrant. We will take reasonable care to satisfy ourself that you have permitted those persons to act for you.

14. Each Clause Separately Binding

Each clause of the agreement you have with us is separately binding.

If for any reason we, you, or any of the persons specified in clause 9 cannot rely on any clause, all other clauses of it are binding.

15. Rights and Responsibilities that Continue

The cancelling of any agreement you have with us does not affect any rights and responsibilities, which are intended to continue or come into force afterwards. These include the rights and duties under 2, 4 - 11, 13 - 14, and this clause 15.

Should you transfer your domain name or should the domain name otherwise be transferred to another registrar, other than in respect of clauses 3, 12, 13 and 17 which shall survive termination or expiration of this Agreement, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall cease and shall be replaced by the contractual terms of the new registrar.

5. MODIFICATIONS TO AGREEMENT. You agree, during the period of this Agreement, that we may: (1) revise the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and (2) change the services provided under this Agreement. Any such revision or change will be binding and effective immediately on posting of the revised Agreement or change to the service(s) on our web site, or on notification to you by e-mail or regular mail as per the Notices section of this Agreement. You agree to review our web site, including the Agreement, periodically to be aware of any such revisions. If you do not agree with any revision to the Agreement, you may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing us with notice by e-mail or regular mail as per the Notices section of this Agreement, or immediately transfer your domain name to another registrar. Notice of your termination will be effective on receipt and processing by us. You agree that, by continuing to use the Services following notice of any revision to this Agreement or change in service(s), you shall abide by any such revisions or changes. You further agree to abide by the Nominet UK dispute resolution policy (Dispute Policy) as amended from time to time. You agree that, by maintaining the reservation or registration of your domain name after modifications to the Dispute Policy become effective, you have agreed to these modifications. You acknowledge that if you do not agree to any such modifications, you may request that your domain name be deleted from the domain name database.

6. MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR ACCOUNT. In order to change any of your account information with us, you must use your account identifier and password that you selected when you opened your account with us. Please safeguard your account identifier and password from any unauthorized use. In no event will we be liable for the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password. You are solely liable for any activity that occurs through the use of your account identifier and password.

7. DOMAIN NAME DISPUTE POLICY. If you reserved or registered a domain name through us, or transferred a domain name to us from another registrar, you agree to be bound by the Dispute Policy which is incorporated herein and made a part of this Agreement by reference. The current version of the Dispute Policy may be found at http://www.nominet.org.uk/disputes/when-use-drs/policy-and-procedure. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this policy.

8. DOMAIN NAME DISPUTES. You agree that, if the registration or reservation of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time of the dispute. You agree that in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy.

9. NOMINET UK POLICY. You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any Nominet UK-adopted policy, term or condition, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure (consistent with any Nominet UK-adopted policy), (1) to correct mistakes by a registrar or the registry in registering the name, or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name. The current Nominet UK terms and conditions can be found at http://www.nominet.org.uk/uk-domain-names/registering-uk-domain/legal-details.

When you submit a request for a domain name registration with us, you will be entering into two contracts - one contract with us and one contract with Nominet UK. Nominet UK is the UK registry for .uk domain names.

We will act as agents on your behalf by submitting your application to Nominet for you, however, you will still be entering into a direct contract between you and Nominet UK. This is a separate contract from this Agreement, and is currently located at http://www.nominet.org.uk/uk-domain-names/registering-uk-domain/legal-details/terms-and-conditions-domain-name-registration.

We must also make you aware that by accepting Nominet's terms and conditions you are consenting to Nominet using your personal data for a variety of reasons. In particular, your name and address may be published as part of Nominet's WHOIS look-up service.

10. AGENCY. Should you intend to license use of a domain name to a third party, you shall nonetheless be the domain name registrant of record and are therefore responsible for providing your own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name. You shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the domain name, however such liability may be limited through the prompt disclosure of the identity of such third party licensee to the party who has provided reasonable evidence of actionable harm or made the allegation. You shall also remain liable for the use of that domain name by any such third party, notwithstanding any agreements between yourself and such third party / parties. You also represent that you have provided notice of the terms and conditions in this Agreement to the third party and that the third party agrees to the terms of this Agreement in full (including without limitation, clause 18 (Information) and 19 (Disclosure and Use Of Registration Information) below).

11. ANNOUNCEMENTS. We reserve the right to distribute information to you that is pertinent to the quality or operation of our services and those of our service partners. These announcements will be predominately informative in nature and may include notices describing changes, upgrades, new products or other information to add security or to enhance your identity on the Internet.

12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the amount you paid for such Services. Neither we and our contractors or third party beneficiaries shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages (including without limitation any loss of profits) resulting from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for the cost of procurement of substitute services or otherwise, regardless of the form of action whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages or liability. Because some countries and jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such countries and jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the maximum extent permitted by law. Subject always to the previous sentence, we will not be responsible for or accept any loss of liability suffered by any party resulting from, but not limited to: (1) access delays or access interruptions to the Services or our systems; (2) data non-delivery or data mis-delivery; (3) acts of God (or force majeure); (4) the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password; (5) errors, omissions, or misstatements in any and all information or services(s) provided under this Agreement; (6) the interruption of your Services or your business; and/or (7) loss of registration and/or use of your domain. In no event shall our maximum liability exceed five hundred ($500.00) dollars.

13. INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold us, our contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors and affiliates harmless from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney's fees, from claims by third parties relating to or arising under this Agreement, the Services provided hereunder or your use of the Services, including without limitation infringement by you, or someone else using the Service with your computer, of any intellectual property or other proprietary right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any of our operating rules or policy relating to the service(s) provided. You also agree to release, indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. When we are threatened with suit by a third party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your failure to provide those assurances may be considered by us to be a breach of your Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name.

14. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. Any transfer of ownership in and to a domain name registration shall be affected in accordance with Nominet UK policies and procedures.

15. BREACH. You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement, any operating rule or policy or the Dispute Policy, may be considered by us to be a material breach and that we may provide a written notice, describing the breach, to you. If within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of such notice, you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to us, that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement or have remedied the breach identified to you, then we may terminate this Agreement and delete the registration or reservation of your domain name. Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or any other, breach by you.

16. NO GUARANTEE. You agree that, by registration or reservation of your chosen domain name, such registration or reservation does not confer immunity from objection to either the registration, reservation, or use of the domain name. Further, you agree that neither a pre-registration application nor a registration of a domain name grants any legal rights of ownership of the relevant domain name.

17. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. You agree that your use of our Services is solely at your own risk. You agree that such Services are provided on an "as is", "as available" basis. To the maximum extent permitted by law, we expressly disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose and non-infringement. We make no warranty that the Services will meet your requirements, or that the Services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure, or error free; nor do we make any warranty as to the results that may be obtained from the use of the Services or as to the accuracy or reliability of any information obtained through the Services or that defects in the Services will be corrected. You understand and agree that any material and/or data downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of Services is done at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of such material and/or data. We make no warranty regarding any goods or services purchased or obtained through the Services or any transactions entered into through the Services. No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us or through the Services shall create any warranty not expressly made herein.

18. INFORMATION. As part of the registration process, you are required to provide us certain information and to update us promptly as such information changes such that our records are current, complete and accurate. You are obliged to provide us the following information: (i) your name and postal address (or, if different, that of the domain name holder); (ii) the domain name being registered; (iii) the name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and fax (if available) telephone numbers of the administrative contact for the domain name; and (iv) the name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and fax (if available) telephone numbers of the billing contact for the domain name. Any voluntary information we request is collected such that we can continue to improve the products and services offered to you.

19. DISCLOSURE AND USE OF REGISTRATION INFORMATION. You agree and acknowledge that we will make domain name registration information you provide available to Nominet UK, to the registry administrators, and to other third parties as Nominet UK and applicable laws may require or permit. You further agree and acknowledge that we may make publicly available, or directly available to third party vendors, some, or all, of the domain name registration information you provide, for purposes of inspection (such as through our WHOIS service) or other purposes as required or permitted by Nominet UK and the applicable laws. You hereby consent to any and all such disclosures and use of, and guidelines, limits and restrictions on disclosure or use of, information provided by you in connection with the registration of a domain name (including any updates to such information), whether during or after the term of your registration of the domain name. You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of your domain name registration information by us. You may access your domain name registration information in our possession to review, modify or update such information, by accessing our domain manager service, or similar service, made available by us. We will not process data about any identified or identifiable natural person that we obtain from you in a way incompatible with the purposes and other limitations which we describe in this Agreement. We will take reasonable precautions to protect the information we obtain from you from our loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of that information.

20. REVOCATION. Your wilful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, your wilful failure promptly to update information provided to us, or any failure to respond to inquiries by us addressed to the email address of the registrant, the administrative, billing or technical contact appearing in the "WHOIS" directory with respect to a domain name concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the registration shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and be a basis for cancellation of the domain name registration. Any information collected by us concerning an identified or identifiable natural person (Personal Data) will be used in connection with the registration of your domain name(s) and for the purposes of this Agreement and as required or permitted by the Nominet UK Agreement or a Nominet UK/Registry Operator policy.

21. RIGHT OF REFUSAL. We, in our sole discretion, reserve the right to refuse to register or reserve your chosen domain name or register you for other Services within thirty (30) calendar days from receipt of your payment for such services. In the event we do not register or reserve your domain name or register you for other Services, or we delete your domain name or other Services within such thirty (30) calendar day period, we agree to refund your applicable fee(s). You agree that we shall not be liable to you for loss or damages that may result from our refusal to register, reserve, or delete your domain name or register you for other Services.

If any term or provision is declared invalid or unenforceable, that term or provision will be construed consistent with applicable law as nearly as possible to reflect the original intentions of the parties, and the remaining terms and provisions will remain in full force and effect.

23. NON-AGENCY. Nothing contained in this Agreement or the Dispute Policy shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties.

24. NON-WAIVER. Our failure to require performance by you of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by us of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

25. NOTICES. Any notice, direction or other communication given under this Agreement shall be in writing and given by sending it via e-mail or via regular mail.

Mandated Provisions for gTLD Domain Name Registrations (ICANN RAA 2013 — Section 3.7.7)

Netregistry is accredited by ICANN to provide registrar services for gTLD domain name spaces. As part of that accreditation, we have agreed to be bound by certain agreements including the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (Agreement). Section 3.7.7 of that Agreement requires us to include certain terms (Provisions). These Provisions are incorporated by reference into our agreements with you relating to any application for a gTLD domain name that you may make. When you submit an application to register a gTLD domain name with us, you are stating that you have read and understood these Provisions, and you agree to bound by them. For the purposes of the following terms, Netregistry is the "Registrar" and you are the "Registered Name Holder".

3.7.7.1 The Registered Name Holder shall provide to Registrar accurate and reliable contact details and correct and update them within seven (7) days of any change during the term of the Registered Name registration, including: the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available of the Registered Name Holder; name of authorised person for contact purposes in the case of an Registered Name Holder that is an organisation, association, or corporation; and the data elements listed in Subsections 3.3.1.2, 3.3.1.7 and 3.3.1.8.

3.7.7.2 A Registered Name Holder's wilful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, its wilful failure to update information provided to Registrar within seven (7) days of any change, or its failure to respond for over fifteen (15) days to inquiries by Registrar concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the Registered Name Holder's registration shall constitute a material breach of the Registered Name Holder-registrar contract and be a basis for suspension and/or cancellation of the Registered Name registration.

3.7.7.3 Any Registered Name Holder that intends to license use of a domain name to a third party is nonetheless the Registered Name Holder of record and is responsible for providing its own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the Registered Name. A Registered Name Holder licensing use of a Registered Name according to this provision shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the Registered Name, unless it discloses the current contact information provided by the licensee and the identity of the licensee within seven (7) days to a party providing the Registered Name Holder reasonable evidence of actionable harm.

3.7.7.4 Registrar shall provide notice to each new or renewed Registered Name Holder stating:

3.7.7.4.1 The purposes for which any Personal Data collected from the applicant are intended;

3.7.7.4.2 The intended recipients or categories of recipients of the data (including the Registry Operator and others who will receive the data from Registry Operator);

3.7.7.4.3 Which data are obligatory and which data, if any, are voluntary; and

3.7.7.4.4 How the Registered Name Holder or data subject can access and, if necessary, rectify the data held about them.

3.7.7.5 The Registered Name Holder shall consent to the data processing referred to in Subsection 3.7.7.4.

3.7.7.6 The Registered Name Holder shall represent that notice has been provided equivalent to that described in Subsection 3.7.7.4 to any third-party individuals whose Personal Data are supplied to Registrar by the Registered Name Holder, and that the Registered Name Holder has obtained consent equivalent to that referred to in Subsection 3.7.7.5 of any such third-party individuals.

3.7.7.7 Registrar shall agree that it will not process the Personal Data collected from the Registered Name Holder in a way incompatible with the purposes and other limitations about which it has provided notice to the Registered Name Holder in accordance with Subsection 3.7.7.4 above.

3.7.7.8 Registrar shall agree that it will take reasonable precautions to protect Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

3.7.7.9 The Registered Name Holder shall represent that, to the best of the Registered Name Holder's knowledge and belief, neither the registration of the Registered Name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal rights of any third party.

3.7.7.10 For the adjudication of disputes concerning or arising from use of the Registered Name, the Registered Name Holder shall submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts (1) of the Registered Name Holder's domicile and (2) where Registrar is located.

3.7.7.11 The Registered Name Holder shall agree that its registration of the Registered Name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any Specification or Policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure not inconsistent with any Specification or Policy, (1) to correct mistakes by Registrar or the Registry Operator in registering the name or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the Registered Name.

3.7.7.12 The Registered Name Holder shall indemnify and hold harmless the Registry Operator and its directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of or related to the Registered Name Holder's domain name registration.
