http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/registrant-rights/benefits



This Registration Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions of use by the domain name registration Applicant and the Registrant (jointly and severally referred to as "you") of Asia Pacific IT, Ltd. / DomainPeople, Inc.'s Internet domain name registration services (the "Services) and your registration of that domain name (the "Registration").

By submitting a domain name (“Domain”) to Asia Pacific IT, Ltd. / DomainPeople, Inc. (“DomainPeople”) for Registration, you are acknowledging that you have read, understood, and agreed to all the terms and conditions of this Agreement, any agreement referencing this Agreement, the “.ca” Registration Agreement found at https://www.domainpeople.com/terms-ca.html, where applicable, the incorporated Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “Dispute Policy”), and any other rules or policies that are or may be published by DomainPeople from time to time.  The operative and effective version of this Agreement will be the latest version available at http://www.domainpeople.com/registrationagreement.htm.

By submitting a Domain to DomainPeople for Registration, you are also warranting that you have the authority and legal capacity to enter into this Agreement.

Should you choose to use the private registration services offered by WhoisProtector, Inc. you must agree to and comply with the WhoisProtector Service Agreement found at http://whoisprotector.com/serviceagreement.html.  By subscribing to any third party services through the DomainPeople Web site, you must agree to and comply with the policies and terms of use, as applicable, of any such third party.

Except when expressly agreed to the contrary in writing by DomainPeople, this Agreement, in addition to any other specific agreement between you and DomainPeople, supersedes any other written (including, without limitation, digitized/computerized) agreement, oral agreement, or agreement by conduct.

Wherever in this Agreement the masculine, feminine, or neuter gender is used, it will be construed as including all genders, and wherever the singular is used, it will be deemed to include the plural and vice versa, where the context so requires.

This Agreement will become effective upon the submission of you Registration. DomainPeople, at its sole discretion, may accept or reject your Registration application ("Application"), such rejection including, without limitation, rejection due to a request for Registration of a prohibited Domain.

1. COMPANY ABSTRACT, REGISTRATION, AND DISPUTE

a.  Accreditation.  DomainPeople is an accredited registrar with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”) for the “.COM”, “.NET”, “.ORG”, “.NAME”, “.BIZ”, “.INFO”, and “.US” Top-Level Domains (“TLDs”), and other future TLDs.  As such, DomainPeople has been granted full rights to provide the Services for Second-Level Domains within these TLDs.  ICANN oversees the Domain system management for such present and future TLDs.  Upon accepting your Application, DomainPeople becomes your sponsor for that Application. 

b.  Time Registration Effective.  All Registrations that DomainPeople registers for the applicable TLDs are not effective until DomainPeople has delivered (when applicable) the required Registration information that you provide DomainPeople to the registry administrator (the “Registry”) for the applicable TLDs and such Registry puts your Registration into effect.

c.  No Responsibility for Registry’s Actions.  You agree that DomainPeople is not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions, or any actions by the Registry arising out of or related to your Application and receipt of, or failure to receive, a Registration.

d. Domain Disputes.  You agree that, if your use of DomainPeople’s Services is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy.  If DomainPeople is notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your Domain and/or your use of DomainPeople’s Services, you agree not to make any changes to your Domain record without DomainPeople’s prior written approval.  DomainPeople may, at its sole discretion, not allow you to make changes to such Domain record until (i) DomainPeople is directed to do so by the judicial or administrative body, or (ii) DomainPeople receives notification by you and the other party contesting your Domain that the dispute has been settled.  Furthermore, you agree that if you are subject to litigation regarding your Registration and use of DomainPeople’s Services, DomainPeople may deposit control of your Domain record into the registry of the judicial body by supplying a party with a registrar certificate from us.

e.  Indemnification.  You further agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless DomainPeople, the Registry, their respective parent companies and subsidiaries, and all of their respective executives, directors, officers, attorneys, managers, employees, consultants, contractors, and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including, without limitation, legal costs) arising out of or related to your Registration.  This indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement for whatever reason.

2. FEES

a.  Your Obligation.  You, or the reseller (“Reseller”) on your behalf, will be responsible for paying all fees associated with the Services provided by DomainPeople.  When renewal fees are due, it will be your sole responsibility to ensure that such fees are paid on time to DomainPeople.

b.  Payment & Deadline.  You must make payments by credit card or such other method as DomainPeople may authorize or indicate in the Registration renewal form (“Renewal Form”).  Should you fail to pay the fees by the due date specified, DomainPeople has the right to cancel your Registration at DomainPeople’s sole discretion.  You agree that DomainPeople will have no liability whatsoever with respect to any such cancellation.  All fees, including, without limitation, Pre-Registration fees, are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your Registration is suspended, cancelled, or transferred prior to the end of your then current Registration term.  All Pre-Registration fees are non-refundable.  DomainPeople reserves the right to change fees, surcharges, and renewal fees, and to institute new fees at any time, for any reason, at DomainPeople’s sole discretion.

c.  Actual Payment Required.  Your requested Domain will not be registered, or pre-registered, unless DomainPeople receives actual payment for the Registration or Pre-Registration fee, or at least reasonable assurance of payment of the Registration or Pre-Registration fee from some other entity (such reasonable assurance will be determined at DomainPeople’s sole discretion).  For Pre-Registration Services, Registration will not be granted to you if payment is not received.

d.  Credit Card Charge Back.  In the event of a charge back by a credit card company (or similar action by another payment provider approved by DomainPeople), in connection with the payment of your Registration fee, you agree that the Registration will be transferred to DomainPeople as the paying entity for that Registration to the Registry.  You also agree that DomainPeople reserves all rights regarding such Domains including, without limitation, the right to make the Domains available to other parties for purchase.  DomainPeople may reinstate your Registration at DomainPeople’s sole discretion and, subject to DomainPeople’s receipt of the initial Registration or renewal fee and DomainPeople’s then current reinstatement fee.

e.  Outstanding Fees/Charges.  You are responsible for the full and prompt payment of any outstanding fees and/or charges, notwithstanding the termination or expiry of this Agreement for any reason.

3. DOMAIN OWNERSHIP

a.  Ownership of Domain.  You understand and acknowledge that the Registrant, whose name is on record, will have sole legal ownership of the Domain.  It is your sole responsibility, and not that of DomainPeople’s in any way, to ensure that the proper Registrant name is recorded.

b.  Ownership Transfers.  Before any transfer of your Domain ownership to another entity becomes effective, you must pay DomainPeople the then current amount for the transfer of Domain ownership.  You further agree that as a condition of any such transfer of Domain ownership, the entity to which you seek to transfer your Domain (the “Transferee”) must agree in writing that the Transferee will be bound by this Agreement.  Your Domain will not be transferred until DomainPeople receives such written assurance, and until actual payment of the transfer fee, or reasonable assurance of such payment from some other entity (such reasonable assurance to be determined at DomainPeople’s sole discretion).  You acknowledge and agree that if you attempt to transfer your Domain ownership without paying DomainPeople the then current amount set by DomainPeople for the transfer of Domain ownership, or if the Transferee fails to agree in writing to be bound by this Agreement, then any such transfer will be null and void, and will result in your Registration being revoked without any refund of any charge you have incurred in attempting to register or transfer that Domain.

4. CHANGES TO THE AGREEMENT

You acknowledge that the practice of registering and administering Domains is constantly evolving; therefore, you agree that DomainPeople may modify this Agreement, or any other related and/or applicable agreement, as is necessary to comply with DomainPeople's agreement with ICANN, or any other entity or individual, as well as to adjust to changing circumstances. Your continued use of the Domain registered to you will constitute your acceptance of this Agreement with any new change. If you do not agree to any such change, you may request that your Registration be cancelled or transferred to a different Domain registrar. You agree that such cancellation or request for transfer will be your exclusive remedy if you do not wish to abide by any change to this Agreement, or any other related and/or applicable agreement.

5. REGISTRATION INFORMATION, USE, & LIMITATIONS

6. DOMAIN REGISTRAR TRANSFERS

a.  Fees.  Before any registrar transfer Service provided to you by DomainPeople becomes effective, you or the reseller on your behalf, must pay DomainPeople the then current registrar transfer fee for the registrar transfer Service for your Domain.

b.  Request to Transfer Registration.  Only the Registrant of the Registration and Domain, the authoritative holder, may initiate a request to transfer the Registration from a particular registrar to DomainPeople or from DomainPeople to another registrar.  Therefore, you hereby represent that you have the full and complete authority as the holder of the Registration and Domain to initiate any transfer, or as a contact listed on the current Registration, that you have been given full and complete authority by the Registrant to initiate the transfer.  DomainPeople, at its sole discretion, may require you to provide documentation that proves that the Registrant initiated and/or authorized the transfer request.

c.  Right to Refuse Transfer.  DomainPeople reserves the right to deny any request to transfer a Registration (i) during the first sixty (60) days after the initial Registration with the original registrar; (ii) in accordance with the circumstances described in this Agreement under the Dispute Policy; (iii) if/when there is a pending bankruptcy of the Registrant; (iv) if/when there is a dispute over the identity of the Registrant; (v) by operation of law; or (vi) at the discretion of the then current registrar.  It is the sole responsibility of the Registrant, and not DomainPeople, to ensure that the request to transfer will not be denied for any of the above reasons prior to initiating and paying for the registrar transfer Services.  Fees are not refundable, but may be applied to subsequent transfer requests at DomainPeople’s sole discretion.

d.  Credit Card Charge Back.  In the event of a charge back by a credit card company (or similar action by another payment provider approved by DomainPeople), in connection with the payment of your Registration fee, you agree that the Registration will be transferred to DomainPeople as the paying entity for that Registration to the Registry.  You also agree that DomainPeople reserves all rights regarding such Domains including, without limitation, the right to make the Domains available to other parties for purchase.  DomainPeople may reinstate your Registration at DomainPeople’s sole discretion and subject to DomainPeople’s receipt of the initial Registration or renewal fee and DomainPeople’s then current reinstatement fee.

e.  Successful Completion of Registrar Transfer Request.  Upon successful completion of a registrar transfer request, DomainPeople will immediately become the registrar of record.  As such, you will be bound by this Agreement.  You must extend your existing Registration term for one (1) year from the date your existing Registration is set to expire, provided that the total unexpired term of the Registration does not exceed ten (10) years.

You agree and acknowledge that DomainPeople owns all databases, compilations, collective and similar rights, titles, and interests worldwide in DomainPeople’s Domain database (the “Domain Database”), and all information and derivative works generated from the Domain Database.  You further agree and acknowledge that DomainPeople owns the following information for those Registrations for which DomainPeople is the registrar: (i) the original creation date of the Registration; (ii) the submission date and time of the Application (to DomainPeople and by DomainPeople to the proper Registry); (iii) communications (electronic or paper form) constituting Registration orders, modifications, or terminations, and related correspondence between you and DomainPeople; (iv) records of account for your Registration, including, without limitation, dates and amounts of all payments and refunds; (v) the expiration date of the Registration; (vi) the name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and, when available, fax number of the administrative contact, technical contact, and billing contact, and the name holder, for the Registration; (vii) any remark concerning the registered Domain that appears or should appear in the WHOIS or similar database; and (viii) any other information or data that DomainPeople generates or obtains in connection with the provision of the Services.

8. AGENTS AND LICENSES

a.  Warranty of Authority.  If you are registering a Domain for someone else, you warrant and agree that you have the authority to bind that person as a principal to all the terms and conditions provided herein.

b.  License to Third Party.  If you license the use of the Domain registered to you to a third party, you warrant and agree that you nonetheless remain the Registrant (the Domain holder of record), and remain responsible for any and all obligations under this Agreement, including, without limitation, payment and providing (and updating, as necessary) your full, current, accurate, and complete contact information and administrative, technical, and billing contact information, adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problem that may arise in connection with the Domain and Registration.

9. USE OF FREE SERVICES

In consideration for providing additional optional Services for which DomainPeople does not charge an additional fee, including, but not limited to, URL forwarding, email forwarding, free parking page, free website hosting, free email services, or other services which DomainPeople may introduce from time to time but for which there is not a separate fee ("Free Services"), you agree that, if you use such Free Services, DomainPeople may display advertising in conjunction therewith through the use of links, pop-up or pop-under browser windows, banner advertisements, audio or video steams, appendices to emails, or other similar advertising means, and that DomainPeople may aggregate related usage data by means of cookies and other similar means. You agree that said advertising may be for or include but is not limited to DomainPeople's Web site, DomainPeople product and service offerings, third-party Web sites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or commercial search engines. You agree that DomainPeople may change the content and/or appearance of, or disable, said advertising at any time, in its sole discretion, and without prior notice. You agree that from time to time DomainPeople may provide you with free or low-cost domain name(s) services ("Promotional Name(s)"). If DomainPeople does so, the services for the Promotional Name(s) will be placed in the same account as your other domain name(s) and you will be listed as the registrant, though DomainPeople may point the Promotional Name to IP address(es)of our choosing. If you want to assume control over the services provided to the Promotional Name, including the right to transfer or push the Promotional Name service to other registrars or other accounts or the ability to control the DNS settings for the Promotional Name, you must pay the promotional registration fee or renewal fee, if any, and agree to the terms of this Agreement with respect to such Promotional Name(s). If you do not want the Promotional Name services, you may request that you be removed as the registrant of such Promotional Names and DomainPeople or a third party designated by us will be listed as the domain name registrant.

10. EXPIRATION OF DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION

After expiration of the term of a domain name registration services and before deletion of the domain name in the applicable registry's database, you acknowledge that DomainPeople may direct the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements, and you acknowledge that DomainPeople may either leave your WHOIS information intact or that DomainPeople may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name so that you are no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain name.

After expiration of the term of domain name registration services, you acknowledge that certain registry administrators may provide procedures or grace periods during which expired domain name registrations may be renewed. You acknowledge that you assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or after the end of a domain name registration term to attempt to renew the registration. You acknowledge that DomainPeople, for any reason and in its sole discretion, may choose not to participate in a post-expiration renewal of a domain name and that DomainPeople shall not be liable therefore. You acknowledge that post-expiration renewal or redemption processes, if any, involve additional fees which DomainPeople and your Primary Service Provider may determine. You acknowledge and agree that expired domain name(s) may be made available to be registered or re-registered to any party at any time.

You agree that after expiration of the term of a domain name registration DomainPeople may, for a period of thirty (30) days (the “Expiry Period”), either i) remove the domain name from the zone of the top-level-domain (meaning that the Domain will no longer resolve), or ii) direct the Domain to name-servers and IP address(es) of website(s) designated by us, including, without limitation, to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements. If DomainPeople exercises its rights under this provision, and if you do not contact DomainPeople to pay for and renew the Domain prior to the end of the Expiry Period, you agree that you have abandoned the Domain and you relinquish any and all rights that you may have had to the Domain to DomainPeople other than the rights that DomainPeople provides to you in this agreement.

After the Expiry Period, you agree that DomainPeople may either (i) delete the Domain at any time thereafter or (ii) pay the Registry's registration fee or otherwise allow it to continue to be registered and that DomainPeople may list itself or a third party as the registrant of the Domain in the WHOIS information and pointing the Domain to the name-server(s) and IP address(es) designated by DomainPeople or, (iii) put the Domain up for auction or otherwise sell the Domain, in which case you relinquish all rights and control over the Domain and Domain Services.  If DomainPeople is named as the Registrant for the Domain after the Expiry Period, the ability to redeem the Domain will be available to you for a period of thirty (30) days (the “Registrar Redemption Period”) for a redemption fee equaling that charged for Domains that have been deleted and available for redemption at the Registry. You agree that this service is functionally equivalent to ICANN's or a registry's redemption grace period, which may normally occur after deletion.  After the Registrar Redemption Period you agree that you have abandoned the Domain and you relinquish any and all rights that you may have had to the Domain to DomainPeople.

c.  No Waiver.  The failure of DomainPeople to require your performance of any provision of this Agreement will not affect DomainPeople’s full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor will the waiver by DomainPeople of a breach of any provision of this Agreement be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself.

d.  Survival of Termination.  Sections 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16, and the Dispute Policy, will survive the expiry or termination of this Agreement for any reason.

18.  Pre-registration

a.  Domain Requests.  Requesting a Domain does not mean that the Domain will be successfully registered.  There may be more than one request for the same Domain via different registrars.  DomainPeople will make efforts to register the requested Domain, but DomainPeople is not responsible for any name not registered.

b.  Availability of Domain.  Once a Domain becomes available for Registration, DomainPeople will make efforts to register the requested Domains according to Registry regulations.  Once the Registry informs DomainPeople that DomainPeople is able to register the requested Domain, DomainPeople will automatically charge your credit card for such Domain.

Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy

Any dispute regarding the right to use your Domain will be subject to the Dispute Policy. You agree to protect, defend, hold harmless, and indemnify DomainPeople, and DomainPeople's executives, directors, officers, managers, employees, consultants, and agents, from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, judgments, damages, claims, or causes of actions, including, without limitation, any and all legal fees and expenses arising out of or resulting from any and all dispute resolution proceedings. DomainPeople may modify the Dispute Policy in its sole discretion at any time with the permission of ICANN. Your continued Registration of your Domain after modifications to the Dispute Policy become effective constitutes your acceptance of those modifications. If you do not agree to such modifications, you may request that your Domain be deleted.

You agree that you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time your Domain is challenged by a third party. You also agree that in the event a Domain dispute arises with any third party, you will protect, defend, hold harmless, and indemnify DomainPeople, and DomainPeople's executives, directors, officers, managers, employees, consultants, and agents, from and against any and all liabilities, losses, costs, judgments, damages, claims, or causes of actions, including, without limitation, any and all legal fees and expenses arising out of or resulting from any and all dispute resolution proceedings.

You further agree to be bound by the START-UP TRADEMARK OPPOSITION POLICY FOR ".BIZ" Domains located at http://www.neulevel.com/countdown/stop.html. You acknowledge having read and understood the following documents, and you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of those documents as they may be amended from time to time, which are hereby incorporated and made an integral part of this Agreement.

1. PURPOSE

This Dispute Policy has been adopted by ICANN, and sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with any dispute between you and any party other than DomainPeople (the "Registrar") over the Registration and use of a Domain registered by you. Proceedings under section 4 of this Dispute Policy will be conducted according to the Rules for Uniform Domain Dispute Resolution Policy (the "Rules of Procedure"), which are available at www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-rules-24oct99.htm, and the selected administrative-dispute-resolution service provider's supplemental rules.

2. YOUR REPRESENTATIONS

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

3. CANCELLATIONS, TRANSFERS, & CHANGES

We will cancel, transfer, or otherwise modify Registrations under the following circumstances:

a. Subject to the provisions of section 8 of this Dispute Policy, 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 Dispute Policy or a later version of this Dispute Policy adopted by ICANN. (See sections 4(i)&(k) below.)

DomainPeople may also cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to a 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 (“Complainant”) asserts to the applicable Provider, in compliance with the Rules of Procedure, that:

  1. your Domain is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights; and
  2. you have no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the Domain; and
  3. your Domain 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 & Use in Bad Faith.  For the purposes of section 4.a.(iii), the following circumstances (in particular, but without limitation) will be evidence of the Registration and use of a Domain in bad faith, if they are found by the panel (“Administrative Panel”) that will decide the dispute to be present:

  1. circumstances indicating that you have registered or you have acquired the Domain primarily for the purpose of selling, renting, or otherwise transferring the 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; or
  2. you have registered the Domain in order to prevent the owner of the trademark or service mark from reflecting the mark in a corresponding Domain, provided that you have engaged in a pattern of such conduct; or
  3. you have registered the Domain primarily for the purpose of disrupting the business of a competitor; or
  4. by using the Domain, 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.  Demonstrating Rights to & Legitimate Interests in the Domain 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) will demonstrate your rights or legitimate interests to the Domain for purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(ii), if found by the Administrative Panel to be proved based on its evaluation of all evidence presented:

  1. before any notice to you of the dispute, your use of, or demonstrable preparations to use, the Domain or a name corresponding to the Domain in connection with a bona fide offering of goods or services; or
  2. you (as an individual, business, or other organization) have been commonly known by the Domain, even if you have acquired no trademark or service mark rights; or
  3. you are making a legitimate non-commercial or fair use of the Domain, 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 will 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 section 4.f.

e.  Initiation of Proceeding & Process & Appointment of Administrative Panel.  The Rules of Procedure state the process for initiating and conducting a proceeding and for appointing 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 will be made to the first Administrative Panel appointed to hear a pending dispute between the parties.  This Administrative Panel may consolidate any or all such disputes in its sole discretion, provided that the disputes being consolidated are governed by this Dispute Policy or a later version of this Dispute Policy adopted by ICANN.

g.  Fees.  All fees charged by a Provider in connection with any dispute before an Administrative Panel pursuant to this Dispute Policy will be paid by the Complainant, except in cases where you elect to expand the Administrative Panel from one (1) to three (3) panelists 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.  DomainPeople’s Involvement in Administrative Proceedings.  DomainPeople does not, and will not, participate in the administration or conduct of any proceeding before an Administrative Panel.  Moreover, DomainPeople will not be liable as a result of any decision rendered by the Administrative Panel.

i.  Remedies.  The remedies available to a Complainant pursuant to any proceeding before an Administrative Panel will be limited to requiring the cancellation of your Domain or the transfer of your Registration to the complainant.

j.  Notification & Publication.  The Provider will notify DomainPeople of any decision made by an Administrative Panel with respect to a Domain you have registered with DomainPeople.  All decisions under this Dispute 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 section 4 will 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 Registration should be canceled or transferred, DomainPeople will wait ten (10) business days (as observed in the location of DomainPeople’s principal office) after DomainPeople is 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 DomainPeople’s principal office or of your address as shown in DomainPeople’s Whois database.  See Paragraphs 1 and 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure for details.)  If DomainPeople receives such documentation within the ten (10) business day period, DomainPeople will not implement the Administrative Panel’s decision, and DomainPeople will take no further action, until DomainPeople receives (i) evidence satisfactory to DomainPeople of a resolution between the parties; (ii) evidence satisfactory to DomainPeople 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.

5. ALL OTHER DISPUTES & LITIGATION

All other disputes between you and any party, other than DomainPeople, regarding your Registration that are not brought pursuant to the mandatory administrative proceeding provisions of section 4 of this Dispute Policy will be resolved between you and such other party through any court, arbitration, or other proceeding that may be available.

6. DOMAINPEOPLE'S INVOLVEMENT IN DISPUTES

DomainPeople will not participate in any way in any dispute between you and any party other than DomainPeople regarding the Registration and use of your Domain. You will not name DomainPeople as a party or otherwise include DomainPeople in any such proceeding. In the event that DomainPeople is named as a party in any such proceeding, DomainPeople reserves the right to raise any and all defenses deemed appropriate, and to take any other action necessary to defend DomainPeople.

7. MAINTAINING THE STATUS QUO

DomainPeople will not cancel, transfer, activate, deactivate, or otherwise change the status of any Registration under this Dispute Policy except as provided in section 3 of this Dispute Policy.

8. TRANSFERS DURING A DISPUTE

a.  Transfers of a Domain to a New Holder.  You may not transfer your Registration to another holder (i) during a pending administrative proceeding brought pursuant to section 4 of this Dispute Policy or for a period of fifteen (15) business days (as observed in the location of DomainPeople’s principal place of business) after such proceeding is concluded; or (ii) during a pending court proceeding or arbitration commenced regarding your Domain unless the party to whom the Registration is being transferred agrees, in writing, to be bound by the decision of the court or arbitrator.  DomainPeople reserves the right to cancel any transfer of a Registration to another holder that is made in violation of this subsection 8.a.

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

9. POLICY MODIFICATIONS

DomainPeople reserves the right to modify this Dispute Policy at any time with the permission of ICANN. DomainPeople will post our revised Dispute Policy at: http://www.domainpeople.com/revision/dispute.html at least thirty (30) calendar days before it becomes effective. Unless this Dispute Policy has already been invoked by the submission of a complaint to a Provider, in which event the version of the Dispute 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 Registration dispute, whether the dispute arose before, on, or after the effective date of the change. In the event that you object to any change in this Dispute Policy, your sole remedy is to cancel your Registration with DomainPeople, provided that you will not be entitled to any refund of any fees you paid to DomainPeople. The revised Dispute Policy will apply to you until you cancel your Registration.

PROVISIONS SPECIFIC TO ".BIZ" TLDs

a.  “.BIZ” Restrictions of Use.  Registrations in the “.BIZ” TLD must be used or intended to be used primarily for bona fide business or commercial purposes.  For the purposes of the “.BIZ” Registration restrictions, the “bona fide business or commercial purposes” will mean the bona fide use or bona fide intent to use the Domain or any content, software, materials, graphics, or other information therein to permit Internet users to access one or more host computers through the Domain Name System (“DNS”) to exchange, or facilitate the exchange of, goods, services, information, or property of any kind, or to carry on in the ordinary course of trade or business.  Registering a Domain solely for the purposes of offering, selling, trading, or leasing the Domain for compensation does not constitute a “bona fide business or commercial purpose” of that Domain.

b.  “.BIZ” Certification.  As a “.BIZ” Registrant, you hereby certify that to the best of your knowledge:

  1. the Domain will be used primarily for bona fide business or commercial purposes;
  2. the Domain will not be used exclusively for personal use;
  3. the Domain will not be used solely for the purposes of offering, selling, trading, or leasing the Domain for compensation;
  4. the Registrant has the authority to enter into the Registration agreement; or
  5. the Domain is reasonably related to the Registrant’s business or intended commercial purpose at the time of Registration.

 

For more information on the Registration restrictions, which are incorporated herein by reference, please see http://www.neulevel.com/countdown/registrationRestrictions.html.

c.  Provision of Registration Data.  As part of the Registration process, you are required to provide us with certain information and to keep the information true, current, complete, and accurate at all times.  The information includes the following:

  1. your full name;
  2. your postal address;
  3. your e-mail address;
  4. your voice telephone number;
  5. your fax number (if applicable);
  6. the name of an authorized person for contact purposes in the case of a Registrant that is an organization, association, or corporation;
  7. the IP addresses of the primary nameserver and any secondary nameserver for the Domain;
  8. the corresponding names of the primary and secondary nameservers;
  9. the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and, when available, fax number of the administrative, technical, and billing contacts, and the name holder for the Domain; and
  10. any remark concerning the Domain that should appear in the Whois directory.

 

You agree and understand that the foregoing Registration data will be publicly available and accessible on the Whois directory as required by ICANN and/or Registry policies, and may be sold in bulk in accordance with the ICANN agreement.

d.  Inaccurate or Unreliable Data.  You hereby represent and warrant that the data provided in the Application is and will continue to be true, current, complete, and accurate at all times.  The following will constitute breach of this Agreement with regards to your provision of information:

  1. Your provision of any false, outdated, incomplete, unreliable, or inaccurate information;
  2. Your failure to promptly update any information provided to DomainPeople;
  3. Your failure to respond, for over five (5) calendar days, to DomainPeople’s inquiries addressed to the e-mail address of the administrative, billing, or technical contact then appearing in the Whois directory with respect to a Domain concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with any Registration by or through you or your account.

 

Any information collected by us concerning an identified or identifiable natural person (“Personal Data”) will be used in connection with the Registration and for the purposes of this Agreement, and as required or permitted by the ICANN agreement or any ICANN and/or Registry policies.

e.  “.BIZ” Domain Dispute Policy.  If you reserved or registered a “.BIZ” Domain through us, you agree to be bound by the Dispute Policy contained in this Agreement.  In addition, you hereby acknowledge that you have 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) Uniform Domain Dispute Resolution Policy (“UDRP”), available at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp.htm; (ii) Start-up Trademark Opposition Policy (“STOP”), available at http://www.neulevel.com/countdown/stop.html; and (iii) Restrictions Dispute Resolution Policy (“RDRP”), available at http://www.neulevel.com/countdown/rdrp.html.

f.  “UDRP”.  The UDRP sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between Registrant and any party other than the Registry or registrar over the Registration and use of an Internet Domain registered by you.

g.  “STOP”.  The STOP sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between a Registrant of a “.BIZ” Domain with any third party (other than the Registry or registrar) over the Registration or use of a “.BIZ” Domain registered by you that is subject to the Intellectual Property Claim Service (“IPCS”).  The IPCS is a service introduced by the Registry to notify a trademark or service mark holder (“Claimant”) that a second-level Domain has been registered in which that Claimant claims intellectual property rights.  In accordance with the STOP and its associated rules, those Claimants will have the right to challenge Registrations through independent ICANN-accredited dispute resolution providers.

h.  “RDRP”.  The RDRP sets forth the terms and conditions under which any allegation that a Domain is not used primarily for business or commercial purposes will be enforced on a case-by-case and fact specific basis by an independent ICANN-accredited dispute provider.  None of the violations of the Registration restrictions will be enforced directly by or through the Registry.  The Registry will not review, monitor, or otherwise verify that any particular Domain is being used primarily for business or commercial purposes or that a Domain is being used in compliance with the SUDRP or UDRP processes.

i.  Dispute Policy Modifications.  You agree that DomainPeople, at DomainPeople’s sole discretion, may modify the Dispute Policy.  DomainPeople will post any such modification on the DomainPeople’s web site (the “Web Site”) at least thirty (30) calendar days before the modification becomes effective.  You agree that, by maintaining the reservation or Registration of your Domain after modifications to the Dispute Policy become effective, you have agreed to these modifications.  If you do not agree to any such modification, you may terminate this Agreement.  We will not refund any fee paid by you if you terminate this Agreement.

j.  Domain Disputes.  You agree that, if your use of the Services 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 third party challenge.  You agree that in the event a Domain dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold DomainPeople, and DomainPeople’s executives, directors, officers, managers, employees, consultants, and agents, harmless pursuant to this Agreement.  If DomainPeople is notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your use of the Services, you agree not to make any changes to your Domain record without DomainPeople’s prior approval.  DomainPeople reserves the right to deny you permission to make changes to such Domain record until (i) DomainPeople is directed to do so by the judicial or administrative body, or (ii) DomainPeople receives notification by you and the other party contesting your Registration and use of the Services that the dispute has been settled.  Furthermore, you agree that if you are subject to litigation regarding your Registration and use of the Services, we may deposit control of your Domain record into the Registry of the judicial body by supplying a party with a registrar certificate from us.

k.  Reservation of Rights.  DomainPeople and the “.BIZ” Registry (NeuLevel, Inc.) expressly reserve the right to deny, cancel, transfer, or modify any Registration that DomainPeople or the “.BIZ” Registry deems necessary, in its discretion, to protect the integrity and stability of the Registry, to comply with any applicable laws, government rules, or requirements, requests of law enforcement, in compliance with any dispute resolution process, or to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of DomainPeople and/or NeuLevel, Inc., as well as their affiliates, subsidiaries, executives, directors, officers, managers, employees, consultants, and agents.  DomainPeople and NeuLevel, Inc. also reserve the right to freeze a Domain during resolution of a dispute.

b.  Submission to UDRP.  Registrant agrees to submit to proceedings under ICANN's Uniform Domain Dispute Policy (“UDRP”) and comply with the requirements set forth by Afilias for Domains registered during the Sunrise Period, including the mandatory Sunrise Dispute Resolution Policy.  These policies are subject to modification.

c.  Registration Information.  Registrant agrees to immediately correct and update the Registration information for the registered name during the Registration term.  Failure to correct such information will constitute a breach of this Agreement.

In the case of a “.US” TLD Registration, the following additional terms and conditions apply will:

a.  Eligibility to Register.  To be eligible to register a “.US” Domain, you must be a U.S. citizen or resident, or a business or organization, including federal, state, and local government with a bona fide presence in the U.S.  Therefore, if you are registering a “.US” Domain, you certify and warrant that you satisfy at least one of the following U.S. Nexus Requirements (“Nexus Requirements”):

  1. Category 1 – A natural person (1) who is a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. or any of its possessions or territories or (2) whose primary place of domicile is in the U.S. or any of its possessions, or
  2. Category 2 – Any entity or organization (1) that is incorporated within one of the fifty (50) U.S. states, the District of Columbia, or any of the U.S. possessions or territories, or (2) organized or otherwise constituted under the laws of a state of the U.S., the District of Columbia, or any of its possessions or territories, or

b.  Mainentance of Eligibility.  You agree to continually satisfy the requirement that all “.US” Domain Registrants maintain the Nexus Requirements.

c.  Additional Requirements.  Registrants are required to provide certain additional Nexus information.  Except where noted that a Registration will be denied if information is missing, failure of a Registration to satisfy Nexus Requirements will result in the Domain being placed upon a thirty (30) day hold during which time the Registrant will be notified and given the opportunity to correct the information.  If Registrant takes no action within the thirty (30) day period, the Registration will be cancelled and the Domain will be returned to available status.  The Registration fee will not be refunded.  If, on the other hand, the Registrant is able to demonstrate compliance with the requirement and the information is corrected, the hold will be released and the Domain will be registered.  The Registrant must also satisfy the following additional conditions for the applicable Nexus Category:

  1. Certification that the Registrant satisfies the Nexus Requirements.  If not completed, then Registration will be cancelled;
  2. Basis for compliance (Nexus Requirement Category 1, 2, or 3);

d.  Sunrise Period.  During the Sunrise Period, you will be able to submit only one (1) Application for each Domain based on the corresponding trademark serial number.  If you submit more than one (1) Application for the same Domain based on the same trademark registration, only one of those Applications (as determined by DomainPeople) will be included in the final randomization.

e.  Eligibility for Sunrise.  To be eligible for the Sunrise Period, your trademark application or registration must be contained in the Principal register at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”).  The trademark registration or application must be based on words or textual marks, not on logos or designs.  For the purposes of the Sunrise Period, trademarks and service marks are treated the same way.

g.  Nexus Dispute Policy.  You agree that, if a third party submits to the “.US” TLD Administrator (“Administrator”) a “Nexus Challenge” to the “.US” Domain, the Domain will be placed upon “Registry Hold” until the matter is resolved.  While the Domain is on Registry Hold, the Registrant must not change any of the contact information for that particular Domain, or transfer the Domain to any third party.

h.  Challenger’s Prima Facie Case.  If the Administrator determines that the challenger of the Domain (the “Challenger”) has established a prima facie case that the Registrant has not met the Nexus Requirements, the Registrant must submit evidence of compliance within thirty (30) days from the date of receiving a letter from the Administrator requesting that the Registrant submit such evidence of compliance.

i.  Curing Nexus Deficiency.  If the Registrant does not respond within the thirty (30) days mentioned above in section 19.h. of this Agreement, or is unable to demonstrate through documentary evidence that the Registrant complied with the Nexus Requirements prior to the date the Nexus Dispute Policy was invoked, the Registrant will be given thirty (30) days to cure the Nexus deficiency.

j.  Inability to Cure Nexus Deficiency.  If the Registrant does not respond within the thirty (30) days mentioned above in section 19.i. of this Agreement, or is unable to provide evidence demonstrating compliance with the Nexus Requirements, the Registration will be deleted from the Registry database, the registrar for the name will be notified, and the Domain will be made available for Registration.  This process is the exclusive remedy for the Challenger.

k.  Reservation of Rights.  The Administrator reserves the right to modify this Nexus Dispute Policy at any time.  The Administrator will post its revisions on the Administrator’s web site at least thirty (30) days before it becomes effective.  The Administrator also reserves the right to deny, cancel, transfer, or modify any Registration that it deems necessary, in its discretion, (1) to protect the integrity and stability of the Registry, (2) to comply with any applicable law, government rule or requirement, request of law enforcement, in compliance with any dispute resolution process, (3) to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of the Administrator, as well as its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, representatives, employees, and stockholders, (4) for violations of this Agreement, or (5) to correct mistakes made by the Administrator or any registrar in connection with Registration.  The Administrator also reserves the right to freeze a Domain during resolution of a dispute.

You agree to comply with any and all current and future .EU Policies at any and all times. You agree that, by maintaining any service related to your pre-registration request (which may include the ultimate registration of a domain name) after such posting of any new or amended .EU Policies, you have agreed to the terms and conditions of the same and will be bound by such terms and conditions. You acknowledge that if you do not agree to the amended or new .EU Policies, you may terminate this Agreement. We will not refund any fees paid by you if you terminate your Agreement with us.

14. Registry Actions or Inactions. Our ability to provide services to you depends in part upon the provision of services by third parties, such as the .EU Registry. We cannot control and will not be responsible for the actions or inactions of such third parties. You acknowledge and agree that we shall not be liable to you or any other party in connection with claims, damages, losses, expenses or costs incurred or suffered by you as a result of actions taken or not taken by third parties, including, but not limited to, the .EU Registry (for example, the .EU Registry reserves the right to suspend, reject, deny or revoke any domain name registration for a variety of reasons, none of which DomainPeople can control).

15. Accurate Information. As a part of your pre-registration, you agree to submit the accurate and reliable information, including but not limited to, contact details of at least one natural or legal person responsible for the technical operation of the domain name that you are requesting. The submission of inaccurate information shall constitute grounds for rejecting a pre-registration request or proposed registration request or suspending, terminating or deleting the rights to register a domain name. Without limiting the other provisions of the Agreement, your provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, or your failure promptly to update information provided to DomainPeople shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and shall be a basis for cancellation of the domain name(s) applied for hereunder.

You agree to review and become familiar with the information available on our website and on .EU Registry website concerning the various periods and descriptions of services available in connection with .EU TLD, and to regularly check for modifications and/or updates to such information, as the same may change from time to time. You agree that you are solely responsible for applying and/or registering for the service periods you desire to participate in. You acknowledge and agree that submission of a proposed registration request for a domain name(s) or any other services (regardless of when submitted), does not guarantee that you will ultimately be the registrant for any particular domain name.

18. Registration Approval. You understand that any successful registrations that are approved by the .EU Registry shall not start until at least the completion of the sunrise period.

19. Disclaimer Concerning Intellectual Property Protection. Your pre-registration request for during .EU Registry's sunrise period DOES NOT PROVIDE YOU WITH ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROTECTIONS, RIGHTS OR REGISTRATIONS.

DomainPeople assumes no liability for any pre-registration request or a domain name's rejection, suspension, cancellation, deletion, interruption or transfer due to procedures, rules or policies laid down by .EU Registry or due to practices, customs or prejudices of courts of law or dispute resolving arbitrators. We are not liable for any claims, damages or injuries arising out of the termination of services that are provided by .EU Registry for any reason, including but not limited to the termination of .EU Registry's registration authority, or its bankruptcy.

VI. Art. 20-23 (April 28, 2004) that involved the domain name(s) in your pre-registration request.

22. Additional Acknowledgments Concerning Customer Information. You also acknowledge and agree that DomainPeople will share with the .EU Registry certain information submitted by you in your application for our services and pre-registration request, as required by our agreement(s) with the .EU Registry or to provide the services you have applied for.
