In relation to domain name services offered by us, a Registered Name Holder's wilful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, its wilful failure promptly to update information provided to Registrar, or its failure to respond for over fifteen (15) calendar days to inquiries by Registrar concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the Registered Name Holder's registration shall constitute a material breach of the Registered Name Holder-registrar contract and be a basis for cancellation of the Registered Name registration.

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

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

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

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

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

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

1.2.1.5 The Registered Name Holder shall consent to the data processing referred to in Subsection 1.2.1

1.2.1.6 The Registered Name Holder shall represent that notice has been provided equivalent to that described in Subsection 1.2.1 to any third-party individuals whose Personal Data are supplied to Registrar by the Registered Name Holder, and that the Registered Name Holder has obtained consent equivalent to that referred to in Subsection 1.2.1.5 of any such third-party individuals.

1.2.1.7 Registrar shall agree that it will not process the Personal Data collected from the Registered Name Holder in a way incompatible with the purposes and other limitations about which it has provided notice to the Registered Name Holder in accordance with Subsection 1.2.1 above.

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

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

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

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

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

By visiting this Site and communicating electronically with us, you consent to such transfers.

1.3 Structure of terms

These terms are structured so that there are clauses which apply to all Services ("the general clauses") and there are clauses which apply in respect of particular Services. Unless a specific subsection is cited, references to any clause include the subsection in that clause (for example, a reference to clause 1 includes this subsection 1.3, while a reference to clause 1.2 does not include this subsection 1.3).

For the purposes of these terms, the general clauses refer to clauses 1 to clauses 15, while the remaining clauses specify which particular Services they apply to.

Several of the remaining clauses may not apply as you may not have purchased or used those particular Services. However, if you have purchased a particular Service, and there is an inconsistency between a general clause and the clause which applies in respect of that particular Service, you agree that the inconsistency shall be resolved by giving precedence to the clause applying to the particular Service.

  • The arrangement of domain name licenses to be granted to you by the relevant registry operators, subject to their rules, license terms, policies and any other requirements as listed by them and their governing bodies;
  • Carrying out limited functions on behalf of the registry operators;
  • Serving as a registrar of record;
  • Provision of online facilities for the management of domain names; and
  • Provision of other, related services.

This document contains the terms and conditions that apply between you, us and the services provided by the Registrar.

The Registries however may change their policies and where they are found at any point of time, and therefore we cannot guarantee that the list we provide is up-to-date, accurate or complete.
