In these terms, references to “you”, “customer”, “user”, “your” and so on, shall refer to the person who requests or utilises the provision of this Site, or any Services provided by us.

In these terms, references to “Spam” shall refer to distribution of unsolicited bulk and/or commercial electronic messages over the Internet.

In these terms, references to “Supplier” or “Registry Operator” shall refer to any third party which provides a product/service which we resell/offer to you.

1.1 Representations you make about yourself

This Site and the Services found at this Site are available only to Users who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law.

By using this Site, or by applying for, renewing, transferring, taking ownership, or using any Services found at this Site, you irrevocably undertake, represent, warrant and agree that:

  1. You are at least 18 years of age, and that we may terminate this Agreement immediately without providing a refund if we discover that you are under 18 years of age at the time of entering into this Agreement;

    The Registered Name Holder shall provide to the company registrar (“Registrar”) accurate and reliable contact details and promptly correct and update them during the term of the Registered Name registration, including: the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available of the Registered Name Holder; name of authorized person for contact purposes in the case of an Registered Name Holder that is an organization, association, or corporation;

  2. Where you act on behalf of a corporate entity, you have the legal authority to bind such corporate entity to these terms, in which case the terms “you”, “your”, “User” or “customer” in this Agreement shall refer to such corporate entity. If, after your agreement to these terms, we learn that you do/did not have the legal authority to bind such corporate entity, you will be personally responsible for the obligations contained in these terms. We shall not be liable for any loss or damage resulting from our reliance on any instruction, notice, document or communication reasonably believed by us to be genuine and originating from an authorized representative of your corporate entity. If there is reasonable doubt about the authenticity of any such instruction, notice, document or communication, we reserve the right (but undertake no duty) to require additional authentication from you;
  3. You shall not permit any other person to use your username in order to gain access to the service, nor shall you divulge to any other person any password which you may from time to time use in gaining access to the services. If your password becomes known, you will inform us immediately. We may require you to change your password where considered necessary, and
  4. You agree at all times to indemnify us for any expenses, costs, damages, penalties, imposts and any other liabilities we incur from time to time, whether directly or indirectly, as a result of you transmitting or receiving or in any other manner using any information, which transmission, receipt or use is facilitated by or connected with the provision of services to you, including without limitation liability for breach of copyright or any other intellectual property rights

1.2 Terms governing your account

In order to access some of the features of this Site or use some of the Services found at this Site, you will have to activate an account (“Account”). You represent and warrant to us that all information you submit when you create your Account is accurate, current and complete, and that you will keep your Account information accurate, current and complete. If we have reasonable belief that your Account information is untrue, inaccurate, out-of-date or incomplete, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate your Account.

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.

You are solely responsible for the activity that occurs on your Account, whether authorized by you or not. It is your responsibility to ensure your Account information is secure, including without limitation your customer number/login, password, payment method(s), and shopper PIN. For security purposes, we recommend that you change your password and shopper PIN at least once every three (3) months for each Account you have with us. You must notify us immediately of any breach of security or unauthorized use of your Account. We will not be liable for any loss you incur due to any unauthorized use of your Account. You, however, may be liable for any loss we or others incur caused by your Account, whether caused by you, or by an authorized person, or by an unauthorized person.

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.

If you are visiting this Site from a country other than the country in which our servers are located, your communications with us may result in the transfer of information (including your Account information) across international boundaries. 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 RDRP sets forth the terms under which any allegation that a domain name is not used primarily for business or commercial purposes shall be enforced on a case-by-case, fact specific basis by an independent ICANN-accredited dispute provider. None of the violations of the Restrictions will be enforced directly by or through Registry administrator. Registry administrator will not review, monitor, or otherwise verify that any particular domain name is being used primarily for business or commercial purposes or that a domain name is being used in compliance with the UDRP processes.

  • Serving as a registrar of record
  • Provision of online facilities for the management of domain names

21.27.3 .asia Redemption

Upon the expiry of a domain name (Domain Object), the name is not immediately purged from the registry and available for registration. The following URL describes the general lifecycle for a domain name http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/gtld-lifecycle

A domain may be recovered from redemption at any time during this 30 day period. A fee will apply in which the first year of renewal is included. This fee is collected by Crazy Domains on behalf on the registry.

Should a domain not be recovered from redemption is will be struck from the registry and released.

Renewal Process:

  • On expiry date, CLIENTHOLD status is added to the domain, stopping it from resolving any DNS records.
  • Client is given 30 days past the expiry date to renew. Failure to renew will result in us cancelling the domain name from the registry, sending the domain name to REDEMPTION for 30 days. While in Redemption, the domain can be recovered (For a fee that we pay the registry).
  • After 30 days in REDEMPTION, the domain name enters PENDINGDELETE for 5 days (domain cannot be recovered from us at this time) before being deleted from the registry completely and being made available for re-registration. The chances of re-registering are very slim due to the domain name aftermarket/speculation on expired domains.
  • The domain name will be deleted from the .com registry and will enter the REDEMPTION status then PENDINGDELETE as per gTLD expiry cycle. http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/gtld-lifecycle.htm

  • Provision of online facilities for the management of domain names
  • Provision of other, related services

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

21.30.1 Acceptable domain names

DNS BE will not accept the following domain names for registration:

  • Names that are already registered (“first come, first served” -principle), names in quarantine, names that are put “out-of-support” or on hold.
  • Names that consist of characters other than “a-z”, “A-Z”, “0-9” and “-“, or that start or end with “-” (as recommended in RFC 1035, published on the web site of DNS BE).
  • Names of less than two (2) or more than sixty-three (63) characters.
  • Names with “-” on the third and the fourth position.

Names will be registered for the person whose application is completed first, notwithstanding earlier applications for those names that are not yet complete. An application is complete when it is received by the DNS BE computer system (not when it was sent), and when it contains all the data required by DNS BE.

The refusal to register a domain name does not create any rights (priority rights or other) for the applicant. The applicant may file a new application, in competition with anybody else, if that name later becomes available to the public.

21.30.2 Right of use

  1. After the registrar completes the registration process and pays the registration fees, registrant is granted the exclusive right to use the domain name applied for.
  2. The right of use is valid for one year and is renewable as far as the registration fee has been settled.
  3. A domain name is put on hold if DNS BE is notified that legal proceedings, whether within or outside the scope of a court of law, are in progress over that name. A domain name that is on hold cannot be transferred or deleted, nor can the details of registrant be modified. Registrant can, however, still use his domain name.
  4. DNS BE may terminate the registration if registrant breaches any of the terms and conditions of the domain name registration. In case of a breach of the terms and conditions, DNS BE can send a reminder by e-mail to both the registrar and registrant informing them that the registration will be terminated if the breach is not remedied within 14 days.
  5. After termination of the registration for reasons outside the scope of item d) of this article, the concerned domain name shall be placed in quarantine for forty (40) days. During this period the registrar can restore the domain name to its original status at the request of registrant provided that a reactivation fee is paid. At the end of this period the concerned domain name can be made available again for registration provided that it has not been reactivated.
  6. A domain name is labelled “out-of-support” in case the registrar contract with DNS BE is terminated and DNS BE has asked registrants to find a new registrar.

21.30.3 Fees and payment

  1. Registrant is aware that the registrar acting on his behalf must pay the initial registration fee and the renewal fee according to the agreement between the registrar and DNS BE.
  2. The registrar has access to the computer system of DNS BE in order to verify the status and expiration date of the domain names that he manages. The registrar is responsible for the timely information of registrant that the registration of his domain names is due to be renewed.
  3. DNS BE is not responsible for the registrar’s non-payment of registration or renewal fees, which may result in the non-registration or cancellation of a domain name (even if registrant has paid the registrar).

21.30.4 Obligation to have a working e-mail address

Registrant must have a working e-mail address, which is inserted in the DNS BE data base. DNS BE and registrant must use this e-mail address for official communication between them, and registrant must keep the address up-to-date through his registrar. If the e-mail address is not kept up-to-date, registrant is in breach of these terms and conditions and DNS BE may terminate the registration as provided in article 3 above.

21.30.6 Agreement between domain name holder and registrar

  1. The registration and renewal process with DNS BE can only be conducted by registrant through an authorised registrar, who is acting on behalf of registrant but for its own account. DNS BE must make available on its web site a list of the authorised registrars, and a copy of the typical agreement between DNS BE and the registrar. DNS BE is not a party to the agreement between registrant and his registrar incurs no obligation or liability from that agreement.
  2. If a registrar is no longer an authorised registrar because the agreement with DNS BE is terminated, DNS BE must send an e-mail to registrants informing them that their domain name is put “out-of-support” and asking them to appoint another registrar within one month. If registrant does not appoint another registrar within one month, the registration agreement between DNS BE and registrant will be terminated at the end of its term with no possibility of renewal. Registrant’s domain name will remain “out-of-support” until the later of three months after DNS BE sent the notice-mail to registrant, or two months after the registration was terminated. While the domain name is “out-of-support” registrant may appoint another registrar who may send a request, including its reasons, to DNS BE to become the new registrar of registrant and restore the registration if terminated.
  3. If a domain name holder terminates the agreement with his registrar, he must at the same time designate a new registrar who must inform DNS BE of the proposed change of registrar. After the reception of the transfer request made by the new registrar, DNS BE will inform registrant of the proposed change by e-mail. This e-mail will contain a code which will permit registrant to confirm or to reject the transfer via the website of DNS BE. Registrant must bring in his confirmation or rejection via the website of DNS BE within 7 days following the e-mail from DNS BE. If registrant does not respond within 7 days, DNS BE must send a reminder by e-mail to the new registrar informing him that the transfer will only take effect if registrant confirms the change to DNS BE by a duly undersigned fax message within 7 days following the reminder by e-mail. In absence of confirmation within 7 days, the initiated transfer will be cancelled.
  4. When a domain name holder wants to transfer a domain name to a third party, the latter must ask his registrar to start the procedure described in item c) of this article with the exception that registrant and the third party must confirm the proposed change via the website or fax.
  5. The successful execution of the procedures described in items c) and d) of this article means that a new registration period is started for the concerned domain names and implies payment of the original registration fee as specified in article 32.5 a). No reimbursement of fees paid for the initial registration period shall be made.

21.30.6 Privacy policy

  1. Registrant authorises DNS BE to process personal and other data required to operate the “.be” domain name system. DNS BE shall only use these data within the framework of the management of the .be domain name zone and related services. DNS BE may only transfer these data to third parties if ordered to do so by the public authorities (local or national, judicial or administrative), upon demand of the dispute resolution entity mentioned in article 32.9 or as provided in paragraph (c) of this article. Registrant has the right to access his personal data and to arrange for it to be amended, where errors exist.
  2. Registrant must keep DNS BE immediately informed through the registrar of any change in name, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers. An omission or delay in informing DNS BE of such changes may result in the termination of the registration.
  3. Registrant authorises DNS BE to make the following personal data accessible on its website (through the so called WHOIS-search facility) – along with some other technical data – to guarantee the transparency of the domain name system towards the public:
    • name, address and telephone and fax number of domain name holder;
    • date of registration and status of the domain name;
    • e-mail address of domain name holder;
    • language chosen for the dispute resolution set out in article 10.

Registrant also authorises DNS BE to transfer these data to third parties within the scope of domain name information or monitoring services.

In exception to the two previous paragraphs, the name, address, telephone and fax numbers of registrant will not be accessible on the website (through WHOIS search facility) nor be transferred to third parties if registrant is a private person.

Third parties that want to know the personal data of a private domain name holder and that have legitimate reasons for such a disclosure, can send a motivated request to DNS BE. DNS BE will evaluate the invoked legitimacy for the disclosure and take a decision whether or not to communicate the requested data.

21.30.7 Representations and warranties

  1. Registrant represents and warrants that:
    1. all statements made during the registration process and the term of the registration are complete and accurate;
    2. registering the domain name will not infringe or otherwise violate the rights of a third party;
    3. the domain name is not registered for an unlawful purpose;
    4. the domain name is not used in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, such as a name that helps to discriminate on the basis of race, language, sex, religion or political view;
    5. the domain name is not contrary to public order or morality (e.g. obscene or offensive names);
  2. DNS BE is not liable for any damage, including direct or indirect damage, consequential damage and loss of profits, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, resulting from or related to the registration or use of a domain name or to the use of its software or web site, even if DNS BE has been advised of the possibility of such damage, e.g. regarding:
    1. registration or renewal (or the default of registration or renewal) of a domain name in favour of a domain name holder or a third party due to an error concerning their identity;
    2. termination of DNS BE’s authority to register domain names in the “.be” domain;
    3. rights that third parties claim to domain names;
    4. technical problems or faults;
    5. acts or omissions of the registrars regarding the application, registration or renewal of domain names which may result in the non-registration or cancellation of a domain name.

Point iv however, does not apply when registrant is a registrant.

DNS BE will use its best efforts to provide its services according to the “best practices” standards adopted and approved in national or international context.

Registrant must indemnify DNS BE against any claim (and the resulting costs, including attorneys’ fees) originating from the use or registration of a domain name that infringes the rights of a third party.

Disputes between DNS BE and registrant must be brought before the courts of Brussels who will have exclusive jurisdiction, and must be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of Belgium, unless the registrant has the legal right to bring the dispute before another court or to have it governed in accordance to other law.

21.30.8 Change of terms and conditions

  1. The rules of the domain name registration procedure are dynamic and subject to change.
  2. If DNS BE decides to change its rules, it will make the new rules available to the public by posting them on its web site at least thirty (30) days before the new rules take effect. Each registration procedure will be handled according to the rules in effect on the date the application is complete.
  3. As a deviation of the previous rule, DNS BE can modify the technical registration rules of article 2 without the application of the mentioned minimum delay of thirty (30) days. Such modifications will take effect from the moment of their announcement on the website of DNS BE. DNS BE can only make use of this specific procedure as far as those modifications seem justified within the national or international technical context and as far as they are intended to prevent registrations of speculative nature.
  4. DNS BE will not personally inform domain name holders, whose domain names have been rejected in the past, that new rules apply, even if the rejected names would be allowed under the new rules.

21.30.9 Dispute resolution policy

  1. Dispute resolution.
  2. Registrant must submit the type of disputes set out below to alternative dispute resolution proceedings and accepts in this regard the competence of an accredited Dispute Resolution Entity. Registrant accepts that those proceedings must be conducted before one of the accredited Dispute Resolution Entities listed at the web site of DNS BE. The procedure will be conducted in the language chosen by registrant during his application. Every dispute will be governed by the dispute resolution policy applicable when the complaint is filed.

  3. Applicable disputes.
    1. Registrant must submit a dispute to alternative dispute resolution proceedings if a third party (a “Complainant”) asserts to the Dispute Resolution Entity, in compliance with the rules of procedure, and proves that:
      • registrant’s domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark, a trade name, a social name or corporation name, a geographical designation, a name of origin, a designation of source, a personal name or name of a geographical entity in which the Complainant has rights; and
      • registrant has no rights or legitimate interests in the domain name; and
      • registrant’s domain name has been registered or is being used in bad faith.
    2. The evidence of such in bad faith registration or use of a domain name can inter alia be demonstrated by the following circumstances:
      • circumstances indicating that the domain name was registered or acquired primarily for the purpose of selling, renting, or otherwise transferring the domain name to the Complainant who is the owner of the trademark, trade name, social name or corporation name, geographical designation, name of origin, designation of source, personal name or name of the geographical entity, or to a competitor of that Complainant, for valuable consideration in excess of the costs directly related to the domain name; or
      • the domain name was registered in order to prevent the owner of a trademark, a trade name, a social name or corporation name, a geographical designation, a name of origin, a designation of source, a personal name or a name of a geographical entity from reflecting this name in a corresponding domain name, provided that registrant has engaged in a pattern of such conduct; or
      • the domain name was registered primarily for the purpose of disrupting the business of a competitor; or
      • the domain name was intentionally used to attract, for commercial gain, Internet users to registrant’s web site or other on-line location, by creating a likelihood of confusion with the Complainant’s trademark, trade name, social name or corporation name, geographical designation, name of origin, designation of source, personal name or name of a geographical entity as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of registrant’s web site or location or of a product or service on his web site or location.
      • registrant registers one or more personal names without the existence of a demonstrable link between registrant and the registered domain names.
    3. If a complaint is filed, registrant can demonstrate his rights or legitimate interests to the domain name by the following circumstances:
      • prior to any notice of the dispute, registrant used the domain name or a name corresponding to the domain name in connection with a bona fide offering of goods or services or made demonstrable preparations for such use; or
      • registrant (as an individual, business, or other organization) has been commonly known by the domain name, even if he has acquired no trademark; or
      • registrant is making a legitimate and non-commercial or fair use of the domain name, without intent for commercial gain to misleadingly divert registrants or to tarnish the trademark, trade name, social name or corporation name, geographical designation, name of origin, designation of source, personal name or name of the geographical entity at issue.
  4. Rules of procedure.
  5. The rules of procedure of the Dispute Resolution Entity state how to initiate and conduct the proceedings, which delays apply and how to appoint the Third-party Decider that will decide the dispute.

    The rules of procedure also determine the fees that the Complainant must pay.

    The Dispute Resolution Entity publishes the rules of procedure on its web site.

  6. Non-intervention of DNS BE.
  7. DNS BE does not, and will not, participate in the administration or conduct of any proceedings before a Third-party Decider. Neither DNS BE, the Dispute Resolution Entity or the Third-party Decider will be liable as a result of any fault made in the dispute resolution process, except for intentional faults.

  8. Remedies.
  9. The remedies available to a Complainant under any proceedings before the Third-party Decider are limited to requiring the cancellation of the domain name registration or the transfer of the domain name to the Complainant.

  10. Notification and publication.
  11. The Dispute Resolution Entity must publish all decisions under this dispute resolution policy on the Internet during a reasonable term. DNS BE must also be informed of these decisions. If registrant is involved in other legal procedures concerning his/her domain name, he/she must inform DNS BE of the final decision(s). DNS BE may decide to publish the decisions referred to in the present article.

  12. Courts of competent jurisdiction.
  13. The submission to the alternative dispute resolution procedures does not prevent either registrant or the Complainant from submitting the dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction for independent resolution before, during or after those proceedings. If a Third-party Decider decides that the domain name registration should be cancelled or transferred, DNS BE will implement that decision 15 days after being informed of the Third-party Decider’s decision except if registrant has started the appeal procedure of the dispute resolution in due time If the appeal procedure was started in time, DNS BE will not take further action (whilst leaving the domain name on hold) until the appeal procedure has ended or has been cancelled.

  14. Other disputes
  15. All other disputes between registrant and any party other than DNS BE over the domain name registration that are not brought under the alternative dispute resolution procedures must be resolved through any court proceedings, arbitration or other available proceedings.

  16. Defences.
  17. DNS BE will not participate in any dispute between registrant and any party other than DNS BE over the registration and use of the domain name, neither in the alternative dispute resolution proceedings, nor in any other proceedings. Registrant must not name DNS BE as a party or otherwise include it in any such proceedings. If DNS BE is named as a party in any such proceedings, it reserves the right to raise any and all defences deemed appropriate, and to take any other action necessary to defend itself.

  18. Domain name on hold.
  19. As soon as a request for alternative dispute resolution is properly filed with the Dispute Resolution Entity and the appropriate fee is paid, the Dispute Resolution Entity must inform DNS BE of the identity of the Complainant and the domain name involved. DNS BE must immediately put the domain name involved “on hold”, under article 32.4 of these terms and conditions. The domain name remains on hold until the end of the proceedings set out in paragraph (g).

  20. Costs of dispute resolution.

The dispute resolution fee is payable by the Complainant. However, if the Third-party Decider concludes that the domain name registration needs to be struck out or transferred, DNS BE shall repay the total of these costs to the Complainant and reclaim the thus repaid costs from registrant. Upon DNS BE’s first request, registrant shall reimburse the repaid amounts. Registrant shall not have a right of recourse against DNS BE, the Dispute Resolution Entity, the Third-party Decider or the Complainant for the thus suffered financial loss. The potential financial loss for registrant is the risk that the latter took for the speculative registration of domain names on which third parties have rights.

The repayment provision specified in the previous paragraph does not apply to the appeal procedure of the dispute resolution. The costs of the appeal procedure are payable by the party that instituted this procedure.

The costs mentioned in this article only refer to the administrative costs of the dispute resolution as stipulated in article 10 and do not include any costs or fees for legal advice of the parties.

21.30.10 Severability clause

If one or more clauses of these terms and conditions are found to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal, the other clauses of the terms and conditions will nevertheless remain in full force. DNS BE and registrant also agree to replace the invalid, unenforceable or illegal clause with a valid, enforceable and legal clause preserving the economic aims and maintaining the spirit of the clause so replaced.

21.37.4 .CEO Domain Name License Terms

21.37.4.1 Registry

The Registry for .CEO is CEOTLD Pty Ltd. The Registry website is located at http://www.nic.ceo

This Registrant Agreement is part of the Registry Policies, which form a cohesive framework and must be read in conjunction with one another, as well as with other applicable agreements, policies, laws, and regulations which, taken together, represent the entirety of your obligations and responsibilities with regard to any domain name registration.

21.37.4.2 Terms and Conditions

  1. By applying to register or renew a domain name in this Registry (hereinafter referred to as an Application) or by registering one or more domain name(s), the Registrant hereby acknowledges that they have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, as well as the other documents in the Registry Policies.

    The most recent Registry Policies apply to any and all domain name applications, domain names, and domain name registrations in this Registry and explain the terms, conditions, rights, and obligations between the Registry, the Registrar, and the Registrant. Those parts of the Registry Policies that are not part of the text of this Registration Agreement are incorporated into this Registration Agreement by this reference.

    The Registry may, in its sole discretion, modify the Registry Policies at any time and from time to time. The Registry shall post the current version of the Registry Policies on the Registry Website. The Registry may inform Crazy Domains of changes to the Registry Policies via email, and Crazy Domains may in turn notify the Registrant of any changes thereto; the Registrant agrees that such email shall not be considered spam; however, neither the Registry nor Crazy Domains shall not be obligated to provide such notice via email or otherwise. The Registrant agrees to check the Registry Website periodically for Registry Policy updates.

    The Registrant’s continued registration and/or use of a domain name following the date the most current version of the Registry Policies is posted to the Registry Webpage, which shall be the effective date, constitutes the Registrant’s acceptance of such revised Registry Policies. In the event that the Registrant does not wish to be bound by the revised Registry Policies, the Registrant’s sole remedy is to cancel the registration of any domain name covered by the Registry Policies, by following the appropriate Registry and/or Crazy Domains policies regarding such cancellation.

  2. Registration Fee. The Registrant shall pay to Crazy Domains the appropriate registration fee (Registration Fee) applicable at the time the Registrant submits its Application to Crazy Domains. Payment of the Registration Fee shall be made in accordance with the requirements of Crazy Domains, and the Registry Policies are effective at the time of submission of such application or at the time of payment, whichever is earlier. All Registration Fees paid pursuant to this Agreement are non-refundable except as provided for herein. It is the responsibility of Crazy Domains to pay a separate registration fee to the Registry in connection with such domain name application, and the Registry is not bound to accept any application until such separate registration fee is paid by Crazy Domains. The Registry will not refund any Registration Fee or other fee to the Registrant in the event of non–performance by Crazy Domains; the Registry disclaims any and all liability for any losses incurred as a result of any non-performance by Crazy Domains including where a third party may obtain registration of a domain name for which an Application has been submitted.

  3. Term and Renewal Term. The Registrant’s exclusive registration of the domain name shall continue for the term specified in the accepted application (the Term), subject to the Registry’s and/or Crazy Domains’ right to suspend or terminate the domain name pursuant to this Agreement and the Registry Policies, which are incorporated herein by reference. Domain name Registrations may be made for an annual term of between one (1) and ten (10) years.

  4. Registrant Information. The Registrant shall ensure that the information submitted by or on behalf of the Registrant to crazy Domains in connection with registration of the domain name or otherwise (Registrant Information), will, throughout the Term, comply with the Registry Policies as may be in effect from time to time and will remain true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable. The Registrant shall maintain, update, and keep the Registrant Information true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable by immediately making such changes in their account with Crazy Domains as registrar. The Registry reserves and may exercise the right to suspend and/or terminate the Registrant’s registration of the domain name if: (i) information provided by the Registrant to Crazy Domains and/or Registry appears, in the Registry’s sole discretion, to be false, inaccurate, incomplete, unreliable, or misleading in any respect; or (ii) the Registrant fails to maintain, update, and/or keep the Registrant Information true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable. In such a circumstance, the Registry may, in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Crazy Domains, suspend the Registrant’s domain name(s) upon the Registry’s receipt of knowledge that such information is deficient. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section will constitute a material breach of this Registration Agreement, which will entitle the Registry to terminate this Agreement, resulting in suspension and/or deletion of the domain name, immediately upon such breach without any refund of the Registration Fee and without any obligation of notice to the Registrant. The Registry shall not be liable to the Registrant or any third party either for taking action, or failing or declining to take action for the Registrant’s violation of this section.

    1. The Registrant acknowledges and agrees that all personal information about the Registrant which is supplied to the Registry and/or Crazy Domains may be publicly available to third parties via a public “Whois” service, as required by ICANN and as allowed by applicable laws.
    2. Registrants must provide all contact information as required by Crazy Domains. Providing true, current, complete, and accurate contact information is an absolute condition of registration of a domain name within this TLD. If any Registrant Information provided during registration or subsequent modification to that information is false, inaccurate, or misleading or conceals or omits pertinent information, the Registry may, in its sole discretion, terminate, suspend, place on hold, or cancel the domain name registration of any Registrant without notification and without refund to the Registrant.
    3. The Registrant is responsible for responding in a timely fashion to communications from Crazy Domains or the Registry regarding any domain name registered by or on behalf of the Registrant.
    4. The Registry retains the irrevocable right, but expressly disclaims any obligation, in its sole discretion, to monitor and/or scan any content published or sent under a domain name registered in the Registry, including where such content involves an intrusion or causes modification of Registry or other data, providing such scanning is for the purpose of identifying Internet security vulnerabilities or the presence of malicious software or content capable of causing harm or disruption to the systems of other Internet users or the Registry, or content which is illegal. The Registry may delegate this right to its agents, representatives, successors, and assigns or choose not to exercise the right. The Registry shall not be liable to the Registrant or any third party either for taking action, or failing or declining to take action for the Registrant’s violation of this section.
  5. Registrant’s Agents. The Registrant understands, acknowledges, and agrees that by using the domain name, the Registrant accepts the terms and conditions of and is bound by this Agreement (including the Registry Policies incorporated into this Agreement), even if an agent (such as an Internet service provider, domain name retailer, domain name reseller, or employee) entered into this Agreement on the Registrant’s behalf, and even if the Registrant has not itself read this Agreement and/or the Registry Policies. Further, the Registrant understands, acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for all information submitted by its agent. The Registry may, but will not be bound to, cancel this Agreement due to any errors or omissions by the Registrant’s agent in the registration process or thereafter (e.g., if such agent provides incorrect Registrant Information), as the agent’s apparent authority will be deemed actual authority and will suffice to bind the Registrant. By acting on the Registrant’s behalf, such agent represents and warrants to the Registry that the agent is authorised to bind the Registrant hereto and that it has fully and thoroughly advised the Registrant of the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including the Registry Policies incorporated into this Agreement).
  6. Scope of Registration. On payment of the Registration Fee to Crazy Domains and after payment by Crazy Domains to the Registry of the separate Crazy Domains registrar registration fee, and after acceptance of the application, the Registrant will be entitled to a limited license for the exclusive use of the applied-for domain name which, in the event of sale, assignment, sublicense, or otherwise, the registration and use of the domain name shall at all times be subject to continuing compliance with the terms of this Agreement and the Registry Policies, for the duration of the Term. However, the Registrant may not sublicense, use, display, exploit, or register a domain name in any manner which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegee, may constitute illegal activity or cause or permit any contravention or violation of the Registry Policies, whether or not in connection with the registered domain name. In the event of any assignment, sub-license or similar transaction, the Registrant remains responsible for complying with all terms and conditions of this Agreement, and accepts liability for any harm caused by such sub-licensor or third party’s use of the domain name in contravention of this Agreement or the Registry Policies. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section by the Registrant and/or its agent, assignee, sub-licensor, or any other third party, will constitute a material breach of this Agreement, which will entitle the Registry to terminate this Agreement or take such other action as it deems necessary or desirable, without any refund of the Registration Fee, at the Registry’s sole discretion. Further, in the event of such termination, the Registry or Crazy Domains may, in such party’s sole discretion, refuse registration of domain names by Registrant or discontinue services with respect to the Registrant’s domain name or any other domain name which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegee, it deems to be related, including but not limited to other domain names registered by the same Registrant and/or agent. In case of such refusal or discontinuation without cause (“cause” being defined as dishonouring any payment made to Crazy Domains and/or the Registry or any violation of the Registry Policies), neither the Registry nor Crazy Domains shall be liable for any loss, damage, or other injury whatsoever, including but not limited to economic or consequential loss and/or damages, resulting from the Registry’s or Crazy Domains’ refusal to register, or decision to discontinue services for, the Registrant’s domain name, including to the extent permitted by applicable law in cases of negligence.
  7. Registrant Representations and Warranties. The Registrant represents, warrants, and covenants that:
    1. the Registrant understands that registration entitles the Registrant only to a limited license for the use of the domain name(s) for the Term, subject to compliance with this Agreement, the Registry Policies and other applicable rules and laws, including those concerning trademarks and other types of intellectual property rights, as these may now exist or be revised from time to time.

    3. the Registrant will use or display the domain name in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations of any applicable national, state, territorial, or international or other laws, rules, and regulations, and ICANN Consensus Policies, and will not use the domain name in any way which violates or may violate a right of the Registry or any third party;
    4. any violation of these Registry Policies may result in lock, suspension, or termination of the domain name in question or other domain names the Registrant may have registered in the TLD, in the Registry’s sole discretion;
    5. the information provided by the Registrant is true, complete and accurate, and the Registrant will update said information in a timely manner if it changes;
    6. the Registrant is either: (a) an identifiable human individual over the 18 years of age or otherwise recognized as being able to enter into a legally-binding contract under applicable law; or, (b) a properly described and legally-recognized entity within its national jurisdiction, e.g., corporation, limited liability company, partnership, association, society, or proprietary limited company for which the Registrant has legally binding authority to enter into this Agreement and the Registry Policies;
    7. the Registrant will not, directly or indirectly, through registration or use of the domain name or otherwise:

      1. register a domain name for the purpose of unlawfully diverting trade from another business or website;
      2. deliberately register as a domain name misspellings of another person or entity’s personal, company or brand name(s) or confusingly similar domain name(s) in order to pass-off or trade on the business, goodwill or reputation of another, or otherwise infringe upon a third party’s intellectual property rights;
      3. grant or purport to grant a security interest or other encumbrance on or over the domain name unless: such security interest or other encumbrance does not exceed the rights of the Registrant in the domain name as limited by this Agreement, does not impair the Registrant’s ability to fulfil the Registrant’s obligations under this Agreement, and does not impose or purport to impose obligations on the Registry beyond the obligations owed by the Registry to the Registrant in the absence of such a security interest or encumbrance;
    8. the Registrant meets, and will continue to meet for the whole of the Term, any and all eligibility criteria prescribed in the Registry Policies for registering and using the domain name;
    9. the Registrant will maintain the Registrant Information provided pursuant to the requirements of this Agreement;
    10. the Registrant has not previously submitted an Application for registration of a domain name for the same character string where:

      1. the Registrant is relying on the same eligibility criteria for both domain name Applications; and
      2. the domain name application has previously been rejected;
    11. any content, material, email, or webpage, contained on any Uniform Resource Locator (URL), website, or webpage accessing, utilizing, or accessed by means of the domain name, complies with the Acceptable Use Policy, whether incorporated directly into, forwarded, or framed by means of the domain name or otherwise;
    12. the Registrant has not relied upon any representation or promise which does not appear in this Agreement;
    13. the Registrant’s use of the domain name and of any webpage, email, or URL accessed by or utilizing the domain name will comply with the requirements of the Acceptable Use Policy.
  8. Breach and Cure. Failure of a Registrant to abide by any provision of this Agreement and all other Registry Policies will be considered a material breach. In the event of such material breach, the Registry may in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Crazy Domains, suspend, lock, modify, or transfer the domain name and/or may provide written (which may be by email) notice to the Registrant describing the material breach. In any event, where the Registry gives notice, by way of Crazy Domains, to the Registrant, that there is a breach, the Registrant shall rectify, cure, or refute within thirty (30) calendar days. In the event a breach is not rectified, cured, or refuted by the Registrant to Registry’s sole satisfaction within the thirty (30) day period, the Registry may cancel or otherwise modify the Registrant’s registration of and license to use the domain name without refund and without further notice, and pursue any and all legal remedies it may have against the Registrant. Any such breach by the Registrant shall not be waived in the event that the Registry did not act earlier in response to the specific breach, or any other breach, by Registrant. In the event of a breach which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or Crazy Domains, causes or is likely to cause immediate harm to the public interest or the Registry, or which violates or is likely to violate any applicable law or regulation, then Crazy Domains and/or the Registry may, with the cooperation of Crazy Domains, modify, suspend, transfer, or terminate services to the Registrant without written notice; the modification, suspension, transfer, or termination of services constituting notice to Registrant that such a breach has occurred. See below for important limitations on the liability of the Registry and Crazy Domains with regard to acts by such parties under this Section.

    The Registry may delegate authority to:

    1. investigate any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies; and
    2. take action to cure or sanction any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies, including the authority to immediately suspend or transfer use of a domain name upon detection by a service provider or notification, e.g., from an Internet security agency, that the domain name may contain malicious software or otherwise violates the Acceptable Use Policy.
    3. In such circumstances, neither the Registry, Crazy Domains, nor their respective employees, directors, officers, affiliates, representatives, delegees, shareholders, agents, successors, and/or assigns nor any external service provider or Internet security agency triggering the suspension or transfer shall be liable to the Registrant or any other person on account of any service disruption or loss, irrespective of the nature of that loss.

  9. Disputes Between Registrants. The Registrant acknowledges that the Registry cannot, and does not, screen or otherwise review any Application to verify that the Registrant has the legal right to use a particular character string as or in a domain name, or that the Registrant will not infringe the rights of a third party. In the event that any third party disputes the Registrant’s legal right to use, display, exploit, or register the domain name in any fashion, including allegations that infringing material (as defined in the Acceptable Use Policy) is displayed on or forwarded, including via the use of frames, to a website which is resolved via the domain name or that the registration or use of the domain name itself infringes the third party’s rights, the Registrant shall act in accordance with and agree to be bound by the ICANN-mandated URS, UDRP, applicable ICANN Consensus Policies, and the Registry’s CRS. The Registrant will be solely liable in the event that the Registrant’s use of the domain name is found to constitute an infringement or other violation of a third party’s rights.
  10. Indemnity. The Registrant shall indemnify and hold harmless the Registry, Crazy Domains, and such parties’ officers, directors, shareholders, owners, managers, employees, agents, representatives, contractors, affiliates, successors, assigns, and attorneys (the Registry Related Parties) from and against any and all claims made by third parties against the Registrant or Registry Related Parties, including, but not limited to, all loss, liability, claims, demands, damages, cost or expense, causes of action, suits, proceedings, judgments, awards, executions and liens, including lawyers or attorneys’ fees, which fees shall be determined on a full indemnity basis (which lawyers or attorneys shall be hired at the sole discretion of the indemnified party), and costs (including claims without legal merit or brought in bad faith), relating to or arising under this Agreement, the registration or use of domain name registration or other services, or the domain name itself, including the Registrant’s use, display, exploitation, or registration of the domain name, as well as for any infringing or otherwise damaging content displayed or otherwise made available on or by means of the domain name. If an indemnified party is threatened by claims or suit of a third party, the indemnified party may seek written assurances from the Registrant concerning the Registrant’s indemnification obligations but will not be required to do so in order to rely upon this indemnity. Failure to provide such written assurances in a form satisfactory to the indemnified party is a material breach of this Agreement. Failure of the Registrant to fully indemnify the indemnified party in a timely manner may result in termination, suspension, transfer, or modification of the domain name registration services and any such termination, suspension, transfer, or modification shall in no way prejudice or substitute for an indemnified party’s right to seek indemnification by way of litigation or otherwise.

  13. Governing Law/Forum Selection.

The Registrant hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of the Commonwealth of Australia, for any and all claims or disputes directed against the Registry and which arise out of, purport to enforce, construe, or otherwise relate to the domain name, this Agreement, or Registry Policies. The exclusive venue for such action shall be the Courts of the Commonwealth of Australia. The Registrant waives any right to object to venue or jurisdiction based on inconvenient forum or for any other reason, and the Registrant waives any statutory or other right pursuant to the laws of the jurisdiction in which Registrant resides to have a case relating to this Agreement adjudicated or resolved in that jurisdiction. By way of information and not as a term binding against the Registry, disputes not involving the Registry as a party may be governed by a governing law and/or forum selection clause contained in a separate agreement, if any, between the Registrant and such other disputant (for example, disputes between FEMP and a Registrant may be governed by a separate agreement, if any, between the Registrant and FEMP); provided, however, that no such separate agreement may modify or waive either the Registry’s or Registrant’s consent to exclusive choice of law, jurisdiction, and venue in the Commonwealth of Australia for disputes in which the Registry is or may be a party, as described above.

  14. Ownership of Information and Data. Subject to any limitations of the privacy laws of the Commonwealth of Australia, Registrant agrees and acknowledges that the Registry and/or any Registry delegee shall own all database, compilation, collective, and similar rights, title, and interests worldwide in any domain name database(s) and all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database(s), and that such domain name database may include, without limitation, any information supplied by Registrant or by the Registry that appears or should appear in the Whois or similar information repositories, and any other information generated or obtained in connection with providing domain name registration services.

  15. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement or the Registry Policies is held invalid, unenforceable, or void, the remainder of the Agreement or the Registry Policies, as applicable, shall not be affected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect as nearly as possible to reflect the original intention of Crazy Domains, Registry, and Registrant in executing this Agreement.

  16. No Waiver. The failure of either party at any time to enforce any right or remedy available to it under this Agreement with respect to any breach or failure by the other party shall not be a waiver of such right or remedy with respect to any other breach or failure by the other party.

  17. Full Integration. This Agreement, as it may be modified at any time and from time to time as provided for herein, together with the Registry Policies, as they may be modified at any time and from time to time, expressly incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between the Registrant and Crazy Domains for the benefit of the Registry relating to the domain name. No prior or contemporaneous written, oral, and/or electronic representation, negotiation, or agreement form a part of this Agreement, and this Agreement supersedes all prior written, oral, or electronic agreements between the Registrant and the Registry relating to the domain name. Additional agreements, if any, may be entered into between the Registrant and Crazy Domains relating to domain name services provided by Crazy Domains, provided that no such additional agreement may waive, alter, or supersede any provision of this Agreement, neither may such an additional agreement impose any obligation upon the Registry without the Registry’s express prior written consent. If there is any conflict between such additional agreements and this Agreement, this Agreement shall prevail.

  18. Written Agreement. This Agreement constitutes a written agreement between the Registrant and Crazy Domains for the benefit of the Registry even though the Registrant’s Application may be dispatched electronically, and even though the Registry may accept the Application electronically. A printed version of this Agreement, and of any notice given in electronic form related to this Agreement, shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings to the same extent, and subject to the same restrictions, as other business contracts, documents, or records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

  19. Assignment. The parties agree that the Registry may assign, sub-assign, transfer, sell, license, or sub-license its rights and obligations under this Agreement or any portion thereof to a third party without prior written notice to the Registrant.

  21. Headings. The headings of sections contained in this Agreement are inserted solely for convenience and ease of reference only and shall not constitute any part of this agreement, or have any effect on its interpretation or construction.

  22. Third Party Beneficiary. The Registry is an intended third party beneficiary of this Agreement with rights to enforce its terms. The Registrant agrees to cooperate with the Registry or Crazy Domains in Agreement compliance-related matters. There are no other third party beneficiaries of this Agreement

21.37.6 .kiwi Domain Name License Terms

21.37.6.1 Registry

The Registry for .kiwi is Dot Kiwi Limited. The Registry website is located at http://hello.kiwi

This Registrant Agreement is part of the Registry Policies, which form a cohesive framework and must be read in conjunction with one another, as well as with other applicable agreements, policies, laws, and regulations which, taken together, represent the entirety of your obligations and responsibilities with regard to any domain name registration.

21.37.6.2 Terms and Conditions

  1. By applying to register or renew a domain name in this Registry (hereinafter referred to as an Application) or by registering one or more domain name(s), the Registrant hereby acknowledges that they have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, as well as the other documents in the Registry Policies.

    The most recent Registry Policies apply to any and all domain name applications, domain names, and domain name registrations in this Registry and explain the terms, conditions, rights, and obligations between the Registry, the Registrar, and the Registrant. Those parts of the Registry Policies that are not part of the text of this Registration Agreement are incorporated into this Registration Agreement by this reference.

    The Registry may, in its sole discretion, modify the Registry Policies at any time and from time to time. The Registry shall post the current version of the Registry Policies on the Registry Website. The Registry may inform Crazy Domains of changes to the Registry Policies via email, and Crazy Domains may in turn notify the Registrant of any changes thereto; the Registrant agrees that such email shall not be considered spam; however, neither the Registry nor Crazy Domains shall not be obligated to provide such notice via email or otherwise. The Registrant agrees to check the Registry Website periodically for Registry Policy updates.

    The Registrant’s continued registration and/or use of a domain name following the date the most current version of the Registry Policies is posted to the Registry Webpage, which shall be the effective date, constitutes the Registrant’s acceptance of such revised Registry Policies. In the event that the Registrant does not wish to be bound by the revised Registry Policies, the Registrant’s sole remedy is to cancel the registration of any domain name covered by the Registry Policies, by following the appropriate Registry and/or Crazy Domains policies regarding such cancellation.

  2. Registration Fee. The Registrant shall pay to Crazy Domains the appropriate registration fee (Registration Fee) applicable at the time the Registrant submits its Application to Crazy Domains. Payment of the Registration Fee shall be made in accordance with the requirements of Crazy Domains, and the Registry Policies are effective at the time of submission of such application or at the time of payment, whichever is earlier. All Registration Fees paid pursuant to this Agreement are non-refundable except as provided for herein. It is the responsibility of Crazy Domains to pay a separate registration fee to the Registry in connection with such domain name application, and the Registry is not bound to accept any application until such separate registration fee is paid by Crazy Domains. The Registry will not refund any Registration Fee or other fee to the Registrant in the event of non–performance by Crazy Domains; the Registry disclaims any and all liability for any losses incurred as a result of any non-performance by Crazy Domains including where a third party may obtain registration of a domain name for which an Application has been submitted.

  3. Term and Renewal Term. The Registrant’s exclusive registration of the domain name shall continue for the term specified in the accepted application (the Term), subject to the Registry’s and/or Crazy Domains’ right to suspend or terminate the domain name pursuant to this Agreement and the Registry Policies, which are incorporated herein by reference. Domain name Registrations may be made for an annual term of between one (1) and ten (10) years.

  4. Registrant Information. The Registrant shall ensure that the information submitted by or on behalf of the Registrant to crazy Domains in connection with registration of the domain name or otherwise (Registrant Information), will, throughout the Term, comply with the Registry Policies as may be in effect from time to time and will remain true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable. The Registrant shall maintain, update, and keep the Registrant Information true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable by immediately making such changes in their account with Crazy Domains as registrar. The Registry reserves and may exercise the right to suspend and/or terminate the Registrant’s registration of the domain name if: (i) information provided by the Registrant to Crazy Domains and/or Registry appears, in the Registry’s sole discretion, to be false, inaccurate, incomplete, unreliable, or misleading in any respect; or (ii) the Registrant fails to maintain, update, and/or keep the Registrant Information true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable. In such a circumstance, the Registry may, in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Crazy Domains, suspend the Registrant’s domain name(s) upon the Registry’s receipt of knowledge that such information is deficient. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section will constitute a material breach of this Registration Agreement, which will entitle the Registry to terminate this Agreement, resulting in suspension and/or deletion of the domain name, immediately upon such breach without any refund of the Registration Fee and without any obligation of notice to the Registrant. The Registry shall not be liable to the Registrant or any third party either for taking action, or failing or declining to take action for the Registrant’s violation of this section.

    1. The Registrant acknowledges and agrees that all personal information about the Registrant which is supplied to the Registry and/or Crazy Domains may be publicly available to third parties via a public “Whois” service, as required by ICANN and as allowed by applicable laws.
    2. Registrants must provide all contact information as required by Crazy Domains. Providing true, current, complete, and accurate contact information is an absolute condition of registration of a domain name within this TLD. If any Registrant Information provided during registration or subsequent modification to that information is false, inaccurate, or misleading or conceals or omits pertinent information, the Registry may, in its sole discretion, terminate, suspend, place on hold, or cancel the domain name registration of any Registrant without notification and without refund to the Registrant.
    3. The Registrant is responsible for responding in a timely fashion to communications from Crazy Domains or the Registry regarding any domain name registered by or on behalf of the Registrant.
    4. The Registry retains the irrevocable right, but expressly disclaims any obligation, in its sole discretion, to monitor and/or scan any content published or sent under a domain name registered in the Registry, including where such content involves an intrusion or causes modification of Registry or other data, providing such scanning is for the purpose of identifying Internet security vulnerabilities or the presence of malicious software or content capable of causing harm or disruption to the systems of other Internet users or the Registry, or content which is illegal. The Registry may delegate this right to its agents, representatives, successors, and assigns or choose not to exercise the right. The Registry shall not be liable to the Registrant or any third party either for taking action, or failing or declining to take action for the Registrant’s violation of this section.
  5. Registrant’s Agents. The Registrant understands, acknowledges, and agrees that by using the domain name, the Registrant accepts the terms and conditions of and is bound by this Agreement (including the Registry Policies incorporated into this Agreement), even if an agent (such as an Internet service provider, domain name retailer, domain name reseller, or employee) entered into this Agreement on the Registrant’s behalf, and even if the Registrant has not itself read this Agreement and/or the Registry Policies. Further, the Registrant understands, acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for all information submitted by its agent. The Registry may, but will not be bound to, cancel this Agreement due to any errors or omissions by the Registrant’s agent in the registration process or thereafter (e.g., if such agent provides incorrect Registrant Information), as the agent’s apparent authority will be deemed actual authority and will suffice to bind the Registrant. By acting on the Registrant’s behalf, such agent represents and warrants to the Registry that the agent is authorised to bind the Registrant hereto and that it has fully and thoroughly advised the Registrant of the terms and conditions of this Agreement (including the Registry Policies incorporated into this Agreement).
  6. Scope of Registration. On payment of the Registration Fee to Crazy Domains and after payment by Crazy Domains to the Registry of the separate Crazy Domains registrar registration fee, and after acceptance of the application, the Registrant will be entitled to a limited license for the exclusive use of the applied-for domain name which, in the event of sale, assignment, sublicense, or otherwise, the registration and use of the domain name shall at all times be subject to continuing compliance with the terms of this Agreement and the Registry Policies, for the duration of the Term. However, the Registrant may not sublicense, use, display, exploit, or register a domain name in any manner which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegee, may constitute illegal activity or cause or permit any contravention or violation of the Registry Policies, whether or not in connection with the registered domain name. In the event of any assignment, sub-license or similar transaction, the Registrant remains responsible for complying with all terms and conditions of this Agreement, and accepts liability for any harm caused by such sub-licensor or third party’s use of the domain name in contravention of this Agreement or the Registry Policies. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section by the Registrant and/or its agent, assignee, sub-licensor, or any other third party, will constitute a material breach of this Agreement, which will entitle the Registry to terminate this Agreement or take such other action as it deems necessary or desirable, without any refund of the Registration Fee, at the Registry’s sole discretion. Further, in the event of such termination, the Registry or Crazy Domains may, in such party’s sole discretion, refuse registration of domain names by Registrant or discontinue services with respect to the Registrant’s domain name or any other domain name which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegee, it deems to be related, including but not limited to other domain names registered by the same Registrant and/or agent. In case of such refusal or discontinuation without cause (“cause” being defined as dishonouring any payment made to Crazy Domains and/or the Registry or any violation of the Registry Policies), neither the Registry nor Crazy Domains shall be liable for any loss, damage, or other injury whatsoever, including but not limited to economic or consequential loss and/or damages, resulting from the Registry’s or Crazy Domains’ refusal to register, or decision to discontinue services for, the Registrant’s domain name, including to the extent permitted by applicable law in cases of negligence.
  7. Registrant Representations and Warranties. The Registrant represents, warrants, and covenants that:
    1. the Registrant understands that registration entitles the Registrant only to a limited license for the use of the domain name(s) for the Term, subject to compliance with this Agreement, the Registry Policies and other applicable rules and laws, including those concerning trademarks and other types of intellectual property rights, as these may now exist or be revised from time to time.

      2. deliberately register as a domain name misspellings of another person or entity’s personal, company or brand name(s) or confusingly similar domain name(s) in order to pass-off or trade on the business, goodwill or reputation of another, or otherwise infringe upon a third party’s intellectual property rights;
      3. grant or purport to grant a security interest or other encumbrance on or over the domain name unless: such security interest or other encumbrance does not exceed the rights of the Registrant in the domain name as limited by this Agreement, does not impair the Registrant’s ability to fulfil the Registrant’s obligations under this Agreement, and does not impose or purport to impose obligations on the Registry beyond the obligations owed by the Registry to the Registrant in the absence of such a security interest or encumbrance;
    8. the Registrant meets, and will continue to meet for the whole of the Term, any and all eligibility criteria prescribed in the Registry Policies for registering and using the domain name;
    9. the Registrant will maintain the Registrant Information provided pursuant to the requirements of this Agreement;

    11. any content, material, email, or webpage, contained on any Uniform Resource Locator (URL), website, or webpage accessing, utilizing, or accessed by means of the domain name, complies with the Acceptable Use Policy, whether incorporated directly into, forwarded, or framed by means of the domain name or otherwise;

    13. the Registrant’s use of the domain name and of any webpage, email, or URL accessed by or utilizing the domain name will comply with the requirements of the Acceptable Use Policy.
  8. Breach and Cure. Failure of a Registrant to abide by any provision of this Agreement and all other Registry Policies will be considered a material breach. In the event of such material breach, the Registry may in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Crazy Domains, suspend, lock, modify, or transfer the domain name and/or may provide written (which may be by email) notice to the Registrant describing the material breach. In any event, where the Registry gives notice, by way of Crazy Domains, to the Registrant, that there is a breach, the Registrant shall rectify, cure, or refute within thirty (30) calendar days. In the event a breach is not rectified, cured, or refuted by the Registrant to Registry’s sole satisfaction within the thirty (30) day period, the Registry may cancel or otherwise modify the Registrant’s registration of and license to use the domain name without refund and without further notice, and pursue any and all legal remedies it may have against the Registrant. Any such breach by the Registrant shall not be waived in the event that the Registry did not act earlier in response to the specific breach, or any other breach, by Registrant. In the event of a breach which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or Crazy Domains, causes or is likely to cause immediate harm to the public interest or the Registry, or which violates or is likely to violate any applicable law or regulation, then Crazy Domains and/or the Registry may, with the cooperation of Crazy Domains, modify, suspend, transfer, or terminate services to the Registrant without written notice; the modification, suspension, transfer, or termination of services constituting notice to Registrant that such a breach has occurred. See below for important limitations on the liability of the Registry and Crazy Domains with regard to acts by such parties under this Section.

    The Registry may delegate authority to:

    1. investigate any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies; and
    2. take action to cure or sanction any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies, including the authority to immediately suspend or transfer use of a domain name upon detection by a service provider or notification, e.g., from an Internet security agency, that the domain name may contain malicious software or otherwise violates the Acceptable Use Policy.

    In such circumstances, neither the Registry, Crazy Domains, nor their respective employees, directors, officers, affiliates, representatives, delegees, shareholders, agents, successors, and/or assigns nor any external service provider or Internet security agency triggering the suspension or transfer shall be liable to the Registrant or any other person on account of any service disruption or loss, irrespective of the nature of that loss.

  9. Disputes Between Registrants. The Registrant acknowledges that the Registry cannot, and does not, screen or otherwise review any Application to verify that the Registrant has the legal right to use a particular character string as or in a domain name, or that the Registrant will not infringe the rights of a third party. In the event that any third party disputes the Registrant’s legal right to use, display, exploit, or register the domain name in any fashion, including allegations that infringing material (as defined in the Acceptable Use Policy) is displayed on or forwarded, including via the use of frames, to a website which is resolved via the domain name or that the registration or use of the domain name itself infringes the third party’s rights, the Registrant shall act in accordance with and agree to be bound by the ICANN-mandated URS, UDRP, applicable ICANN Consensus Policies, and the Registry’s CRS. The Registrant will be solely liable in the event that the Registrant’s use of the domain name is found to constitute an infringement or other violation of a third party’s rights.

  10. Indemnity. The Registrant shall indemnify and hold harmless the Registry, Crazy Domains, and such parties’ officers, directors, shareholders, owners, managers, employees, agents, representatives, contractors, affiliates, successors, assigns, and attorneys (the Registry Related Parties) from and against any and all claims made by third parties against the Registrant or Registry Related Parties, including, but not limited to, all loss, liability, claims, demands, damages, cost or expense, causes of action, suits, proceedings, judgments, awards, executions and liens, including lawyers or attorneys’ fees, which fees shall be determined on a full indemnity basis (which lawyers or attorneys shall be hired at the sole discretion of the indemnified party), and costs (including claims without legal merit or brought in bad faith), relating to or arising under this Agreement, the registration or use of domain name registration or other services, or the domain name itself, including the Registrant’s use, display, exploitation, or registration of the domain name, as well as for any infringing or otherwise damaging content displayed or otherwise made available on or by means of the domain name. If an indemnified party is threatened by claims or suit of a third party, the indemnified party may seek written assurances from the Registrant concerning the Registrant’s indemnification obligations but will not be required to do so in order to rely upon this indemnity. Failure to provide such written assurances in a form satisfactory to the indemnified party is a material breach of this Agreement. Failure of the Registrant to fully indemnify the indemnified party in a timely manner may result in termination, suspension, transfer, or modification of the domain name registration services and any such termination, suspension, transfer, or modification shall in no way prejudice or substitute for an indemnified party’s right to seek indemnification by way of litigation or otherwise.

  11. DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. THE REGISTRANT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE REGISTRY AND THE REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR OTHER DATA, OR OTHERWISE RELATING TO THE USE, SUSPENSION, TERMINATION OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE DOMAIN NAME OR IN ANY OTHER WAY RELATED TO THE DOMAIN NAME, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING IN THE CASE OF NEGLIGENCE BY THE REGISTRY AND/OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES), OR OTHERWISE.

    IN THE EVENT THAT THE REGISTRY OR A REGISTRY RELATED PARTY TAKES ACTION WITH RESPECT TO A REGISTRY DOMAIN NAME PURSUANT TO THE REGISTRY POLICIES, WHICH ACTION IS REVERSED, MODIFIED, OR ACKNOWLEDGED TO HAVE BEEN INCORRECT BY THE REGISTRY AND/OR A REGISTRY RELATED PARTY, BY OR THROUGH THE REGISTRY COMPLAINT RESOLUTION SERVICE, OR BY A COURT, THEN REGISTRANT AGREES THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE REGISTRY AND/OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES THAT THE REGISTRANT MAY SUFFER THEREBY, EVEN IF THE REGISTRY AND/OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POTENTIAL FOR SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF THE REGISTRY AND/OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES MAY FORESEE SUCH POSSIBLE DAMAGES. THE REGISTRANT’S SOLE REMEDY UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL BE THE RESUPPLY OF THE DOMAIN NAME OR, AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE REGISTRY, A REFUND OF THE REGISTRATION FEE, RENEWAL FEE (IF THE CIRCUMSTANCE OCCURRED DURING A RENEWAL TERM) OR REDEMPTION FEE, WHICH REMEDY THE REGISTRANT AGREES CONSTITUTES THE ONLY POSSIBLE DIRECT DAMAGES FLOWING FROM THIS AGREEMENT.

    IN ADDITION, THE REGISTRY AND/OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES ARE, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES THAT THE REGISTRANT MAY SUFFER BECAUSE OF SERVICE OR SYSTEM FAILURE, INCLUDING DOMAIN NAME SYSTEM FAILURE, ROOT SERVER FAILURE, TELECOMMUNICATION FAILURE, INTERNET PROTOCOL ADDRESS FAILURE, ACCESS DELAYS OR INTERRUPTIONS, DATA NON-DELIVERY OR MIS-DELIVERY, ACTS OF GOD, UNAUTHORISED USE OF PASSWORDS, ERRORS, OMISSIONS OR MIS-STATEMENTS IN ANY INFORMATION OR OTHER SERVICES PROVIDED UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, DELAYS OR INTERRUPTIONS IN DEVELOPMENT OF WEB SITES, RE-DELEGATION OF THE REGISTRY TOP-LEVEL DOMAIN NAME, OR BREACH OF SECURITY, EVEN IF THE REGISTRY AND/OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POTENTIAL FOR SUCH DAMAGES, AND EVEN IF THE REGISTRY OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES MAY FORESEE SUCH POSSIBLE DAMAGES. THE REGISTRANT’S SOLE REMEDY FOR THE REGISTRY OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES’ BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT OR NEGLIGENCE OF ANY TIME SHALL BE, AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE REGISTRY OR THE REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES, THE RESUPPLY OF THE DOMAIN NAME OR A REFUND OF THE REGISTRATION FEE, REDEMPTION FEE OR RENEWAL FEE (IF THE BREACH OCCURS DURING A RENEWAL TERM), WHICH REMEDY THE REGISTRANT AGREES CONSTITUTES THE ONLY POSSIBLE DIRECT DAMAGES FLOWING FROM THIS AGREEMENT. THE REGISTRANT’S SOLE REMEDY FOR AN ACTION NOT FLOWING FROM THIS AGREEMENT (IN TORT OR OTHERWISE) SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT OF MONEY PAID TO THE REGISTRY OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES BY THE REGISTRANT.

  13. Governing Law/Forum Selection. For all disputes in which the Registry may be or is a party, this Agreement shall be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Australia and applicable to contracts made and wholly performed therein, without regard to conflict of laws principles. The Registrant hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of the Commonwealth of Australia, for any and all claims or disputes directed against the Registry and which arise out of, purport to enforce, construe, or otherwise relate to the domain name, this Agreement, or Registry Policies. The exclusive venue for such action shall be the Courts of the Commonwealth of Australia. The Registrant waives any right to object to venue or jurisdiction based on inconvenient forum or for any other reason, and the Registrant waives any statutory or other right pursuant to the laws of the jurisdiction in which Registrant resides to have a case relating to this Agreement adjudicated or resolved in that jurisdiction. By way of information and not as a term binding against the Registry, disputes not involving the Registry as a party may be governed by a governing law and/or forum selection clause contained in a separate agreement, if any, between the Registrant and such other disputant (for example, disputes between FEMP and a Registrant may be governed by a separate agreement, if any, between the Registrant and FEMP); provided, however, that no such separate agreement may modify or waive either the Registry’s or Registrant’s consent to exclusive choice of law, jurisdiction, and venue in the Commonwealth of Australia for disputes in which the Registry is or may be a party, as described above.

  14. Ownership of Information and Data. Subject to any limitations of the privacy laws of the Commonwealth of Australia, Registrant agrees and acknowledges that the Registry and/or any Registry delegee shall own all database, compilation, collective, and similar rights, title, and interests worldwide in any domain name database(s) and all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database(s), and that such domain name database may include, without limitation, any information supplied by Registrant or by the Registry that appears or should appear in the Whois or similar information repositories, and any other information generated or obtained in connection with providing domain name registration services.

  15. Severability. If any provision of this Agreement or the Registry Policies is held invalid, unenforceable, or void, the remainder of the Agreement or the Registry Policies, as applicable, shall not be affected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect as nearly as possible to reflect the original intention of Crazy Domains, Registry, and Registrant in executing this Agreement.

  16. No Waiver. The failure of either party at any time to enforce any right or remedy available to it under this Agreement with respect to any breach or failure by the other party shall not be a waiver of such right or remedy with respect to any other breach or failure by the other party.

  17. Full Integration. This Agreement, as it may be modified at any time and from time to time as provided for herein, together with the Registry Policies, as they may be modified at any time and from time to time, expressly incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between the Registrant and Crazy Domains for the benefit of the Registry relating to the domain name. No prior or contemporaneous written, oral, and/or electronic representation, negotiation, or agreement form a part of this Agreement, and this Agreement supersedes all prior written, oral, or electronic agreements between the Registrant and the Registry relating to the domain name. Additional agreements, if any, may be entered into between the Registrant and Crazy Domains relating to domain name services provided by Crazy Domains, provided that no such additional agreement may waive, alter, or supersede any provision of this Agreement, neither may such an additional agreement impose any obligation upon the Registry without the Registry’s express prior written consent. If there is any conflict between such additional agreements and this Agreement, this Agreement shall prevail.

  18. Written Agreement. This Agreement constitutes a written agreement between the Registrant and Crazy Domains for the benefit of the Registry even though the Registrant’s Application may be dispatched electronically, and even though the Registry may accept the Application electronically. A printed version of this Agreement, and of any notice given in electronic form related to this Agreement, shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings to the same extent, and subject to the same restrictions, as other business contracts, documents, or records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

  19. Assignment. The parties agree that the Registry may assign, sub-assign, transfer, sell, license, or sub-license its rights and obligations under this Agreement or any portion thereof to a third party without prior written notice to the Registrant.

  20. Survival of Obligations. The parties agree that clauses 6 (Scope of Registration), 7 (Registrant Representations and Warranties), 8 (Breach and Cure), 9 (Disputes Between Registrants), 10 (Indemnity), 11 (DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY), 12 (Notices), 13 (Governing Law/Forum Selection), 14 (Ownership of Information and Data), and 15 (Severability) of these Registration Terms shall survive the expiry or termination of this Agreement.

  21. Headings. The headings of sections contained in this Agreement are inserted solely for convenience and ease of reference only and shall not constitute any part of this agreement, or have any effect on its interpretation or construction.

  22. Third Party Beneficiary. The Registry is an intended third party beneficiary of this Agreement with rights to enforce its terms. The Registrant agrees to cooperate with the Registry or Crazy Domains in Agreement compliance-related matters.
