arise in connection with the domain name. You shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful
use of the domain name. 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 hereof.
- 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.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and your exclusive
remedy, with respect to any Services(s) provided under this Agreement and any breach of this
Agreement is solely limited to the amount you paid for such Service(s). Neither we nor our
contractors or third party beneficiaries shall be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special
or consequential damages resulting from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for the
cost of procurement of substitute services. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion
or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such jurisdictions, our liability is
limited to the extent permitted by law. We disclaim any and all loss or liability resulting from,
but not limited to: (1) loss or liability resulting from access delays or access interruptions; (2) loss
or liability resulting from data non-delivery or data miss-delivery; (3) loss or liability resulting from
acts of God; (4) loss or liability resulting from the unauthorized use or misuse of your account

any and all information or services(s) provided under this Agreement; (6) loss or liability resulting
from the interruption of your Service. You agree that we will not be liable for any loss of registration
and use of your domain name, or for interruption of business, or any indirect, special, incidental, or
consequential damages of any kind (including lost profits) 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. In no event shall our maximum liability exceed five hundred ($500.00) dollars.
- INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold us, our contractors,
agents, employees, officers, directors, affiliates and third party beneficiaries harmless from all
liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney's fees, of 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 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
shall be a breach of your Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name.
- TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP.
The person named as registrant at the time the user name and password are secured shall be
the owner of 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 will 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.
- 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, then we may
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.
- NO GUARANTY. 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.
- DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. You agree that your use of our Services is solely
at your own risk. You agree that such Service(s) is provided on an "as is", "as available" basis. We
expressly disclaim all warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited

Service 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 Service or any transactions entered into through the Service. 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.

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),

a way incompatible with the purposes and other limitations which we describe in this Agreement.

misuse, unauthorized accessor disclosure, alteration or destruction of that information.
- REVOCATION. Your wilful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information,
your wilful failure promptly to update information provided to us, or your failure to respond for
over fifteen (15) calendar days to inquiries by us concerning the accuracy of contact details
associated with the your registration shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and
be a basis for cancellation of the domain name registration.

to register or reserve your chosen domain name or register you for other 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

We reserve the right to delete or transfer your domain name within a thirty (30) day period
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 any dispute.

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.
- 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.
- NON-WAIVER. Our failure to require performance by you of any provision
