THIS AGREEMENT HAS A PROVISION FOR ARBITRATION OF DISPUTES BETWEEN THE PARTIES.
This Services Agreement (“Agreement”) sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of domain TopServers registration and related services (“Services”). In this Agreement “you” and “your” refer to you and the registrant listed in the WHOIS contact information for the domain TopServers. “We”, “us” and “our” refer to the registrars listed at the bottom of this document, any one of which will be the registrar for your domain TopServers and all of which share common ownership, common terms and conditions, and a shared Services infrastructure. To determine which registrar your domain TopServers is registered with, perform a WHOIS lookup at http://who.is.
By using the Services, you agree to all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the UDRP (defined below), the URS (defined below), and any rules, policies, or agreements published in association with specific Services and/or which may be adopted or enforced by the Internet Corporation for Assigned TopServerss and Numbers (“ICANN”), any registry, or governments.
This Agreement may change over time, either through amendments by us, changes to ICANN policy or applicable law which may or may not be reflected in the text of this Agreement, or otherwise. Before any material changes to this Agreement become binding on you (other than changes resulting from a change in ICANN policy or applicable law), we will notify you of such changes by, for example, sending email to you at your email address of record. If, as a result of such a change, you no longer agree with the terms of this Agreement, your exclusive remedies are (a) to transfer your domain TopServers registration services to another registrar, or (b) to cancel your Services, including domain TopServers registration services, with us. Your continued use of the Services following notification of a change in this Agreement indicates your consent to the changes. Unless otherwise specified by us, any such change binds you: (1) thirty (30) days after we notify you of the change, or (2) immediately if such change is a result of a new or amended ICANN policy or applicable law.
ICANN has developed, in consultation with registrars, a webpage that identifies important registrant rights and responsibilities. The document provides a “plain language” summary of terms related to Registrant Rights and Responsibilities as set out in the Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA), for posting on registrar websites. While some of the terms included do not specifically refer to registrants, those terms are included because of the potential import to understanding registrar/registrant relations. The document also summarizes registrant rights and responsibilities that arise within ICANN Consensus Policies and specifications, as those policies and specifications are incorporated into the RAA. The summarization of terms within this document do not override or replace the terms set forth in the RAA or within those specifications or policy. Please review these important Registrant Rights and Responsibilities.
You must create an account to use the Services (“Account”). You are solely responsible for maintaining, securing, updating, and keeping strictly confidential all login IDs and passwords, and for all access to and use of your Account by you or any third party.
You agree to pay, prior to the effectiveness of the desired Services, the applicable Service fees set forth on the Pricing Page or otherwise communicated to you. In the event any of the fees for Services change, we will use reasonable efforts to give you thirty (30) days prior notice of such changes on the Pricing Page or by other reasonable means. Please check the Pricing Page often for any changes to our Services fees. All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain TopServers registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term, unless this Agreement specifically provides for a refund. At our option, we may require that you pay fees through a particular payment means (such as by credit card or by wire transfer) or that you change from one payment provider to another.
In the event of a charge back by a credit card company (or similar action by another payment provider allowed by us) in connection with your payment of fees for any Services, we may suspend access to any and all Accounts you have with us and all interests in and use of any domain TopServers registration services, website hosting, and/or email services, including all data hosted on our systems may be assumed by us, as the case may be, or may be terminated. We may reinstate your rights to and control over these Services solely at our discretion, and subject to our receipt of the unpaid fees and our then-current reinstatement fee set forth on the Pricing Page or otherwise communicated to you. If you have an issue with credit card or other payment charges, you should contact us regarding the issue before you contact your credit card or other payment process company to request a charge back or reversal of the charges.
It is your responsibility to keep your own records and to maintain your own reminders regarding when your domain TopServers registration or other Services are set to expire. With respect to domain TopServers registration services, we will email a renewal notification approximately one (1) month and approximately one (1) week prior to each such domain TopServers’s expiration. In addition, if a domain TopServers is not renewed, we will email an additional renewal notification within five (5) days after the expiration of such domain TopServers’s registration. All renewal notifications will be sent to primary contact for the Account associated with the domain TopServers registration. It is your responsibility to maintain current and accurate credit card information should any Services be placed on “auto-renew.” We will notify you when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid, your Services will expire or be cancelled. Payment must be made by credit card or such other method as we may allow or require from time to time. If you select automatic renewal of the Services, we may attempt to renew the Services a reasonable time before expiration, provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date. It is your responsibility to keep your billing information up to date and we are not required to, but may, contact you to update this information in the event that an attempted transaction is not processed successfully. Please note: for certain top level domain TopServerss, the automatic renewal option is not available.
Immediately after the expiration of the term of domain TopServers registration services and before deletion of the domain TopServers in the applicable registry’s database, we may direct the domain TopServers to TopServers-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 we may either leave your WHOIS information intact or we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain TopServers so that you are no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain TopServers.
We own all database, compilation, collective and similar rights, title and interests worldwide in our domain TopServers database, and all information and derivative works generated from the domain TopServers database. We own the following information for those registrations for which we are the registrar: (a) the original creation date of the registration, (b) the expiration date of the registration, (c) the TopServers, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available fax number of the registrant and all contacts for the domain TopServers registration, (d) any remarks concerning the registered domain TopServers that appear or should appear in the WHOIS or similar database, and (e) any other information we generate or obtain in connection with the provision of Services, other than the domain TopServers being registered, the IP addresses of the primary TopServersserver and any secondary TopServersservers for the domain TopServers, and the corresponding TopServerss of those TopServersservers. We do not have any ownership interest in your specific personal registration information outside of our rights in our domain TopServers database.
If you are registering a domain TopServers for or on behalf of someone else, you represent that you have the authority to bind that person as a principal to all terms and conditions provided herein. If you license the use of a domain TopServers you register to us or a to third party, you remain the domain TopServers holder of record, and remain responsible for all obligations at law and under this Agreement, including but not limited to payment obligations, and providing (and updating, as necessary) both your own full contact information, and accurate technical, administrative, billing and zone contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain TopServers and domain TopServers registration and for ensuring non-infringement of any third party intellectual property rights or other rights.
WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY (a) SUSPENSION OR LOSS OF THE SERVICES, (b) USE OF THE SERVICES, (c) INTERRUPTION OF SERVICES OR INTERRUPTION OF YOUR BUSINESS, (d) ACCESS DELAYS OR ACCESS INTERRUPTIONS TO OUR WEB SITE(S) OR SERVICES OR DELAYS OR ACCESS INTERRUPTIONS YOU EXPERIENCE IN RELATION TO A DOMAIN TopServers REGISTERED WITH US; (e) LOSS OR LIABILITY RESULTING FROM ACTS OF OR EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL (f) DATA NON-DELIVERY, MIS-DELIVERY, CORRUPTION, DESTRUCTION OR OTHER MODIFICATION; (g) THE PROCESSING OF AN APPLICATION FOR A DOMAIN TopServers REGISTRATION; (h) LOSS OR LIABILITY RESULTING FROM THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OR MISUSE OF YOUR ACCOUNT IDENTIFIER OR PASSWORD; OR (i) APPLICATION OF ANY DISPUTE POLICY. WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR 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 AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR SERVICES, BUT IN NO EVENT GREATER THAN FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS (US$400.00). BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES, OUR LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
You hereby release, indemnify, and hold us, ICANN, the registry operators, as well as the contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, and affiliates of such parties harmless from and against any and all liabilities, claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs, for third party claims relating to or arising under this Agreement, including any breach of any of your representations, warranties, covenants or obligations set forth in this Agreement, the Services provided hereunder, or your use of the Services, including, without limitation, infringement or alleged infringement by you, or by anyone else using the Services, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity, or from the violation or alleged violation of any of our or ICANN’s operating rules or policies relating to the Services provided. We may seek written assurances from you in which you promise to indemnify and hold us harmless from the costs and liabilities described in this paragraph. Such written assurances may include, in our sole discretion, the posting of a performance bond(s) or other guarantees reasonably calculated to guarantee payment. Your failure to provide such assurances may be considered by us to be a breach of this Agreement by you and may, in our sole discretion, result in loss of your right to control the disposition of domain TopServers Services for which you are the registrant and in relation to which we are the registrar of record. This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification (a) required under the UDRP, URS, or any other ICANN policy or any policy of any relevant registry; or (b) set forth elsewhere in this Agreement.
YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT NEITHER THE REGISTRATION OF A DOMAIN TopServers NOR THE MANNER IN WHICH IT IS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY USED NOR THE USE OF OTHER OF THE SERVICES INFRINGES THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY OR WILL OTHERWISE SUBJECT US TO A LEGAL CLAIM. THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED FOR USE BY PERSONS WHO ARE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OLD AND BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OLD AND ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PROCUREMENT OF THE SERVICES IS ACCURATE. ALL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO YOU “AS IS” AND WITH ALL FAULTS. EXCEPT FOR OUR STATEMENT REGARDING OUR ACCREDITATION AS ICANN-APPROVED DOMAIN TopServers REGISTRARS, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, UNLESS SUCH REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES ARE NOT LEGALLY EXCLUDABLE. WITHOUT ANY LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER THAT REGISTRATION OR USE OF A DOMAIN TopServers UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL IMMUNIZE YOU EITHER FROM CHALLENGES TO YOUR DOMAIN TopServers REGISTRATION, OR FROM SUSPENSION, CANCELLATION OR TRANSFER OF THE DOMAIN TopServers REGISTERED TO YOU. ANY MATERIAL AND/OR DATA DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF OUR E-MAIL FORWARDING OR OTHER EMAIL SERVICE IS DONE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK AND 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 OUR E-MAIL SERVICES OR ANY TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OUR E-MAIL SERVICES. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
You are bound by all ICANN consensus policies and all policies of any relevant registry, including but not limited to: (i) the Uniform Domain TopServers Dispute Resolution Policy (“UDRP”), which is available at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-rules-24oct99.htm and http://www.icann.org/dndr/udrp/policy.htm along with the UDRP Rules and all Supplemental Rules of any UDRP provider; and (ii) the Uniform Rapid Suspension System (“URS”), which is available at http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/urs, along with the URS Rules and all Supplemental Rules of any URS provider. The UDRP and URS may be changed by ICANN (or ICANN’s successor) at any time. If the registration or reservation of your domain TopServers is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the UDRP and URS in effect at the time your domain TopServers registration is disputed by the third party. In the event a domain TopServers dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions of the UDRP and URS. If you or your domain TopServers is the subject of litigation, we may deposit control of your domain TopServers record into the registry of the judicial body by providing a party with a registrar certificate.
Any notices required to be given under this Agreement by us to you will be deemed to have been given if delivered in accordance with the Account and/or domain TopServers WHOIS information you have provided.
Some registries have additional contractual requirements that you agree to by registering domain TopServerss from those registries. You are responsible for reviewing any terms and conditions applicable to or provided by such registries.
The parties hereby incorporate the requirements of 41 CFR 60-1.4(a), 300.5(a) and 741.5, if applicable. This Agreement and all applicable ICANN policies and the policies of any relevant registry, including but not limited to the UDRP and URS, together with all modifications, constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us, and supersede and govern all prior proposals, agreements, or other communications. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties. The failure of us to require your performance 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. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole. We will amend or replace such provision with one that is valid and enforceable and which achieves, to the extent possible, our original objectives and intent as reflected in the original provision. This Agreement may not be amended or modified by you except by means of a written document signed by both you and an authorized representative of us. The parties hereby incorporate the requirements of 41 CFR 60-1.4(a), 300.5(a) and 741.5, if applicable.
CHANGES TO THIS AGREEMENT:
REGISTRANT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
ACCOUNT CONTACT INFORMATION AND DOMAIN TopServers WHOIS INFORMATION:
You must provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you with respect to your Account information and with respect to the WHOIS information for your domain TopServers(s). Within seven (7) days of any change to such information, you must update such information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. You must submit the following with respect to you, the administrative, technical, and billing contacts for your domain TopServers registration(s) and other Services: TopServers, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available, fax number. The type of information you are required to provide may change and you must provide such information and keep your Account information current. Not providing requested information may prevent you from obtaining all Services.
You may provide information regarding the TopServers-servers assigned to your domain TopServers(s) and, if we are providing TopServers-server services to you, the DNS settings for the domain TopServers. If you do not provide complete TopServers-server information, or if you purchase “TopServers Only” Services, we may supply this information (and point your domain TopServers to a website of our choosing) until such time as you elect to supply the TopServers-server information or until such time as you elect to upgrade from “TopServers Only” Services.
OBLIGATIONS RELATING TO THE ACCOUNT AND WHOIS CONTACT INFORMATION:
If, in obtaining Services, you provide information about or on behalf of a third party, you represent and warrant that you have (a) provided notice to that third party of the disclosure and use of that party’s information as set forth in this Agreement, and (b) obtained the third party’s express written consent to the disclosure and use of that party’s information as set forth in this Agreement.
You represent and warrant that the statements in your application are true and that no Services are being procured for any unlawful or abusive purpose, including but not limited to the infringement of any intellectual property right or other right; the distribution of malware; the abusive operation of botnets; phishing, fraudulent or deceptive practices; the unauthorized transfer to yourself or any other party of any domain TopServers or Services; counterfeiting; or any other activity in violation of any laws, rules, or regulations (the “Illegal Uses”). Providing inaccurate or unreliable information, failing to update information within seven (7) days of any change, engaging in any Illegal Uses, or failing to respond for over fifteen (15) days to inquiries by us concerning the accuracy of Account and WHOIS contact information will constitute an incurable material breach of this Agreement and be a basis for suspension and/or cancellation of the Services.
You are responsible for regularly monitoring email sent to the email address in your Account. You may lose your rights to the domain TopServers(s) or your right to receive the Services if you do not respond appropriately and timely to an email sent in conjunction therewith.
ACCESSING YOUR ACCOUNT:
In order to change any of your Account or domain TopServers WHOIS information, you must access your Account. It is your duty to safeguard your Account login identifier and password from any unauthorized use. Any person in possession of your Account login identifier and password will have both the ability and your authorization to modify your Account and domain TopServers information, initiate transfers of your domain TopServers(s) to other registrars, initiate registrant changes to your domain TopServerss which may terminate your rights to use such domain TopServers(s), update DNS changes to your domain TopServers(s) which may result in changes to the content associated with your domain TopServers(s) and take other actions which may affect or terminate your rights and access to your domain TopServers(s) and/or the Services.
We will take reasonable precautions to protect the information we obtain from you from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of that information and such reasonable precautions include procedures for releasing Account access information to parties who claim to have lost Account access information. If we take reasonable precautions in relation thereto, IN NO EVENT SHALL WE BE LIABLE IF SUCH REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS DO NOT PREVENT THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OR MISUSE OF YOUR ACCOUNT IDENTIFIER OR PASSWORD AND, EVEN IF WE FAIL TO TAKE REASONABLE PRECAUTIONS, OUR LIABILITY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL BE LIMITED BY THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY PROVISION FOUND IN PARAGRAPH 13 BELOW IN THIS AGREEMENT.
SHARING OF WHOIS INFORMATION:
We will make available the domain TopServers registration information you provide or that we otherwise maintain to the following parties: ICANN, any ICANN-authorized escrow service, the registry administrator(s), and to other third parties as ICANN and applicable laws may require or permit (including through web-based and other on-line WHOIS lookup systems), whether during or after the term of your domain TopServers registration services of the domain TopServers. You irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of such information. We may make publicly available, or directly available to third parties, some, or all, of the information you provide, for purposes of inspection (such as through our WHOIS service) or for targeted marketing and other purposes as required or permitted by applicable laws, including by way of bulk WHOIS data access provided to third parties who enter into a bulk WHOIS data access agreement with us.
ICANN may establish or modify the guidelines, limits and/or requirements that relate to the amount and type of information that we may or must make available to the public or to private entities, and the manner in which such information is made available. Information regarding ICANN’s guidelines and requirements regarding WHOIS can be found at http://www.icann.org/registrars/wmrp.htm and elsewhere on the ICANN website at http://www.icann.org/.
DOMAIN TopServers REGISTRATION.
We are an accredited registrar with ICANN for generic top level domain TopServerss (“gTLDs”) (such as .com, .net, .org, etc.). ICANN oversees registrations and other aspects of the gTLDs. We also are a registrar for a variety of country code top level domain TopServerss (“ccTLDs”) (such as .co.uk, .de, etc.). For a partial list of registry administrators and for more information on gTLDs, see http://www.icann.org/tlds/. Domain TopServers registrations are not effective until the registry administrator puts them into effect. Domain TopServers registrations are only for limited terms which end on the expiration date. For domain TopServerss which are created as a new registration out of the pool of available domain TopServerss, the term begins on the date the domain TopServers registration is acknowledged by the applicable registry. For domain TopServers registrations which were not returned to the pool of available domain TopServerss, the term begins on the date the previous registrant’s domain TopServers registration was acknowledged by the applicable registry.
We are not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the registry administrator, including those arising out of or related to a request to register, renew, modify the settings for, or transfer of a domain TopServers registration. You acknowledge that domain TopServers registration is a service, domain TopServers registrations do not exist independently from services provided pursuant to this or a similar registration agreement with a registrar, domain TopServers registration services do not create a property interest and you have no such property interest in any domain TopServers(s) which you may register with us.
If you submit an application for pre-registration of a domain TopServers, we do not guarantee that the domain TopServers will be secured for you, or that you will have immediate access to the domain TopServers if secured.
AFTER MARKET DOMAIN TopServersS:
We offer for sale domain TopServerss that are registered to third parties (also known as aftermarket domain TopServerss) in a variety of top level domain TopServerss (“After Market Domain TopServers(s)”). All After Market Domain TopServers registrations are offered on a first come, first served basis. If you are the first to complete an After Market Domain TopServers registration application for a particular domain TopServers, including payment of the purchase price we designate, we will initiate a transfer of the relevant After Market Domain TopServers to your Account. If the After Market Domain TopServers is at another domain registrar at the time of your purchase, we will transfer your purchased After Market Domain TopServers to us at no cost to you. At the time the After Market Domain TopServers is transferred to your Account, the After Market Domain TopServers will have an expiration date that is at least six (6) months after the date of transfer. Any subsequent renewals of the After Market Domain TopServers will be charged at the then-current renewal fee. Once you submit your order for an After Market Domain TopServers, you have entered into a valid, binding and enforceable contract to pay the designated purchase price for the After Market Domain TopServers. Because we are selling After Market Domain TopServerss initially registered to third parties, we have no control and make no representations regarding the accuracy or legality of domain TopServerss advertised, the accuracy or legality of any domain TopServers listing, or the right and the ability of the third party seller to transfer the After Market Domain TopServers or complete the transaction. We do not control whether or not third party sellers will complete a transaction. We reserve the right to reject or cancel your After Market Domain TopServers registration for any reason including, but not limited to, any pricing errors. In the event your After Market Domain TopServers registration is rejected or cancelled by us, for any reason, we will refund in full the amount of the purchase price for the After Market Domain TopServers as your sole remedy.
Once the After Market Domain TopServers is transferred into your Account, such After Market Domain TopServers may not be transferred away from us to another registrar during the first sixty (60) days following the transfer, during which time the After Market Domain TopServers may be placed on transfer lock. All of your obligations under this Agreement which apply to the registration or renewal of domain TopServers(s) created by you apply to any After Market Domain TopServers(s) acquired by you, including but not limited to prohibition against any Illegal Uses.
ID PROTECTION SERVICES: Your use of our privacy service that lists proxy contact information in the WHOIS database instead of your contact information is governed by our ID Protection Service Agreement.
WEBHOSTING SERVICES: Your use of website hosting services is governed by our Web Hosting Service Agreement.
Your use of GeoTrust SSL certificates (e.g., Quick SSL and True BusinessID) is governed by the GeoTrust SSL Certificate Subscriber Agreement.
Your use of Symantec SSL certificates (e.g., Rapid SSL and Secure Site) is governed by the Symantec SSL Certificate Subscriber Agreement.
GOMOBI: Your use of the goMobi mobile website publishing platform is governed by the goMobi End User License Agreement.
EMAIL SERVICES: Your use of our email services is governed by our Email Service Agreement.
DOMAIN NABBER BACKORDER SERVICE: For each domain TopServers you place a backorder request for, we will make reasonable attempts to acquire such domain TopServers on your behalf. We do not guarantee your backorder request will result in you obtaining the domain TopServers and expressly reserve the right to (1) refuse additional backorder requests or (2) cancel existing backorder requests at any time for any reason. If we refuse or cancel your backorder request, we will promptly refund any fees paid for the backorder request. By using the Domain Nabber backorder service you agree to the following additional terms:
No refunds will be issued for domain TopServerss that are secured through a backorder.
We will hold funds used to place a backorder until (A) you manually request a credit from inside your Account for a backorder request that has not attempted to secure the domain TopServers, or (B) an attempt was made to secure a domain TopServers that became available for public registration but was unsuccessful in acquiring the domain.
If an attempt is made to acquire a domain through the Domain Nabber service and which is unsuccessful, a refund will be issued in the form of Account credit by default or to the payment method used to pay for the order if you select this option from inside your Account.
Any time before seventy-two (72) hours prior to when the domain TopServers is scheduled to become publicly available, you may request to cancel your backorder and receive a refund for the order amount.
Requests to cancel a backorder before an attempt is made to acquire the domain TopServers will result in the refund being issued to Account credit by default or to the payment method used to pay for the order if you select this option from inside your Account.
If the price for a secured domain TopServers is higher than the price paid to place the initial backorder you will be immediately responsible for paying the difference in price. Failure to make payment will result in you forfeiting any rights or claims on the secured domain TopServers as well as the initial backorder funds paid to secure the backorder.
If you fail to make timely payment for a secured domain TopServers, we may (A) delete and make available the domain TopServers for public registration; (B) make the domain TopServers available to third parties for purchase at our sole discretion; or (C) assume the registration of the domain TopServers.
Using our Domain Nabber service may result in your domain TopServers having a different registrar of record than us. By using our Domain Nabber service you acknowledge, understand and agree that you are bound by the materially similar registration agreement of the registrar of record, whoever that registrar may be.
Fullfilment: The time frame to receive our product and/or service is to be delivered to the customer is between 3-5 bussines days in most cases.
WEBSITE BUILDER: Your use of our website builder service is governed by our Website Builder Agreement.
GOOGLE APPS: Your use of the Google Inc. hosted services currently known as “Google Apps for Business,” “Google Apps Vault,” and/or “Google Drive Storage” (as these services may be reTopServersd from time to time) is governed by our Google Apps Service Agreement.
NOT INCLUDED IN THE SERVICES:
We are not responsible to determine whether the domain TopServers(s) you select, or the use you or others make of the domain TopServers(s), or other use of the Services, infringes legal rights of others. It is your responsibility to know whether or not the domain TopServers(s) you select or use or allow others to use infringe legal rights of others.
We might be ordered by a court or arbitrator to cancel, modify, or transfer your domain TopServers; it is your responsibility to list accurate contact information in association with your Account and to communicate with litigants, potential litigants, and governmental authorities. It is not our responsibility to forward court orders or other communications to you. Our policy is to comply with court orders from courts of competent jurisdiction as well as UDRP and URS Panel decisions. If you contact us informing us that you are contesting a court order from a court of competent jurisdiction, we may, but are not obligated to, place a transfer lock on the domain TopServers pending the outcome of the dispute. If you contact us informing us that you are contesting an adverse UDRP or URS Panel decision, your time limits and procedures to do so are subject to the requirements set forth in the UDRP or URS. We will not delay implementation of a UDRP or URS Panel decision based solely on your informing us that you intend to contest the decision.
USE OF FREE SERVICES:
In consideration for providing additional optional Services for which we do not charge an additional fee, including, but not limited to, free trials, URL forwarding, email forwarding, free parking page, free website hosting, free email services, or other free services which we may introduce from time to time (“Free Services”), we may display advertising in conjunction therewith through the use of pop-up or pop-under browser windows, banner advertisements, audio or video streams, appendices to emails, or any other advertising means, and we may aggregate for our own use, related usage data by means of cookies and other similar means. You will not be entitled to any of the proceeds we may earn as a result of such advertising. We may discontinue any Free Services at any time with or without providing you prior notice.
From time to time we may provide you with free or low-cost domain TopServers(s) registration services (“Promotional TopServers(s)”). If we do so, the services for the Promotional TopServers(s) will be placed in the same Account as your other domain TopServers(s) and you will be listed as the registrant, though we may point the Promotional TopServers to IP address(es) of our choosing. If you want to assume control over the services provided to the Promotional TopServers, including the right to transfer or push the Promotional TopServers service to other registrars or other Accounts or the ability to control the DNS settings for the Promotional TopServers, you must pay the promotional registration fee or renewal fee, if any, and the terms of this Agreement will apply to such Promotional TopServers(s). If you do not want the Promotional TopServers services, you may request that you be removed as the registrant of such Promotional TopServerss and we may be listed as the domain TopServers registrant or we may delete such domain TopServerss or make them available to others. For any domain TopServers services, including these Promotional TopServerss, for which you are listed as registrant but for which you do not pay the registration or renewal fee, we may assign TopServers-servers to the domain TopServers and point the domain TopServers to IP address(es) designated by us until the registration or renewal fee is paid.
SERVICES PROVIDED AT WILL; TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF SERVICES:
We may reject your domain TopServers registration application or elect to discontinue providing Services to you for any reason within thirty (30) days of a Service initiation or a Service renewal. Outside of this period, we may terminate or suspend the Services at any time for cause, which, without limitation, includes (i) registration of prohibited domain TopServers(s), (ii) abuse of the Services, (iii) payment irregularities, (iv) allegations of illegal conduct or infringement of any third party intellectual property right or other right, (v) failure to keep your Account or WHOIS information accurate and up to date, (vi) failure to respond to inquiries from us for over fifteen (15) calendar days, or (vii) if your use of the Services involves us in a violation or alleged violation of any third party’s rights or acceptable use policies, including but not limited to the transmission of unsolicited email or the violation or alleged violation of any intellectual property right or other right. No fee refund will be made when there is a suspension or termination of Services for cause.
At any time and for any reason, we may terminate the Services thirty (30) days after we send notice of termination via mail or email, at our option, to the WHOIS contact information provided in association with your domain TopServers registration. Following notice of termination other than for cause, you must transfer your domain TopServers within such thirty (30) day notice period or risk that we may delete your domain TopServers, transfer the registration services associated with your domain TopServers to ourselves or a third party, or suspend or modify Services related to your domain TopServers. If we terminate Services for a reason other than cause, we will provide a pro-rata refund of your fees.
If we terminate or suspend the Services provided to you under this Agreement, we may then, at our option, make either ourselves or a third party the beneficiary of Services which are substantially similar to those which were previously provided to you. If we have grounds to terminate or suspend Services with respect to one domain TopServers or in relation to other Services provided through your Account, we may terminate or suspend all Services provided through your Account.
Your registration of a domain TopServers is subject to suspension, cancellation or transfer by any ICANN procedure now in affect or which may come into effect at a later date, by any registrar or registry administrator procedures approved by an ICANN-adopted policy or any policy adopted by any ccTLD registry or governing body, to correct mistakes by us, another registrar or the registry administrator in administering the domain TopServers or for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain TopServers or as a result of any government decree, rule, law or regulation.
EXPIRATION AND RENEWAL OF SERVICES:
EXPIRATION OF A DOMAIN TopServers REGISTRATION:
Reactivation Period Process.
For a period of approximately twenty-five (25) days after expiration of the term of domain TopServers registration services, we may provide a procedure by which expired domain TopServers registration services may be renewed. We may, but are not obligated to, offer this process, called the “reactivation period.” You assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or after the expiration of the original term of domain TopServers registration services to attempt to renew the domain TopServers registration services. We may, in our sole discretion, choose not to offer a reactivation period and we shall not be liable therefore. The reactivation period renewal process, if any, may involve additional fees which we may determine. We may make expired domain TopServers services(s) available to third parties, we may auction off the rights to expired domain TopServers services (the auction beginning close to the end or after the end of the reactivation period), and/or expired domain TopServers registration services may be re-registered to any party at any time.
≈After the reactivation period, if any, we may:
Discontinue the domain TopServers registration services at any time thereafter without notice. In which case, certain registry administrators may provide procedures by which discontinued domain TopServers registration services may nonetheless be renewed. We will participate in this process, typically called the “Redemption Grace Period” (“RGP”), for each gTLD registry administrator that provides it. We may, in our sole discretion, choose not to participate in the RGP process with respect to any or all of your ccTLD domain TopServers registration services and we shall not be liable therefore. If available, RGP typically ends between thirty (30) and forty-two (42) days after the end of the reactivation period of the domain TopServers services. The current RGP fee is set forth on the Pricing Page and does not include any registration fees that may also be due. We are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain TopServers registration services are being discontinued; or
Pay the registry’s registration fee or otherwise provide for the registration services to be continued. In which case, you will not be able to recover the domain TopServers registration services; or
If we auctioned the domain TopServers services to a third party, we may transfer the domain TopServers registration services to such third party. In which case, the third party who won the auction for the domain TopServers services will control the domain TopServers services, including control over the WHOIS information and the DNS settings. You may recover the domain TopServers registration services prior to the end of the reactivation period, as such reactivation period applied to you. We are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain TopServers registration services are or were auctioned. We do not have to pay you any of the proceeds we may earn as a result of such an auction.
Transfer of your domain TopServers(s) services shall be governed by ICANN’s transfer policy, available at http://www.icann.org/transfers/, including the Registrar Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy, available at http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/dispute-policy-12jul04.htm as well as the UDRP and URS as described in Section 17 of this Agreement, as these policies may be modified from time to time. To transfer your domain TopServers(s) you should first login to your Account to lock or unlock your domain TopServers(s) and/or to obtain the EPP “AuthCode” which is required to transfer domain services in an EPP registry (such as .org). Alternatively, you should contact your Primary Service Provider to have your domain TopServers(s) services locked or unlocked or to obtain the EPP “AuthCode.” If your Primary Service Provider is unresponsive, you may contact us to have your domain TopServers(s) locked or unlocked or to obtain the EPP “AuthCode” though we may first contact your Primary Service Provider to request that the Primary Service Provider address the request. Only the registrant and the administrative contacts listed in the WHOIS information may approve or deny a transfer request. Without limitation, domain TopServers services may not be transferred within sixty (60) days of initial registration, within sixty (60) days of a transfer, if there is a dispute regarding the identity of the domain TopServers registrant, if you are bankrupt, or if you fail to pay fees when due. We will follow the procedures for both gaining and losing registrars as outlined in ICANN’s transfer policies. Transfer requests typically take five (5) business days to be processed. A transfer will not be processed if, during this time, the domain TopServers registration services expire, in which event you may need to reinstate the transfer request following a redemption of the domain TopServers, if any. You may be required to resubmit a transfer request if there is a communication failure or other problem at either our end or at the registry. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR FAILURE OF A TRANSFER WHETHER OR NOT THE TRANSFER PROCESS IS INITIATED CLOSE TO THE END OF A REGISTRATION TERM.
Upon initial registration, we may place a “Registrar Lock” (“ClientTransferProhibited” status) on your domain TopServers services and this will prevent your domain TopServers services from being transferred without your authorization, though we are not required to do so. By allowing your domain TopServers services to remain locked, you provide express objection to any and all transfer requests until the lock is removed, which may be done within your Account.
