Registrant acknowledges that it has read and understood, and agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of the following documents, as they may be amended from time to time, which are incorporated and made an integral part of this agreement:

  • The .aero Domain Name Management policy, which can be viewed at http://www.information.aero/index.php?id=15.
  • Charter Eligibility Dispute Resolution Policy (“CEDRP”). The CEDRP applies to challenges to registered domain names on the grounds that the Registrant set forth in the Sponsored TLD Charter, which can be viewed at http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/sponsored/sponsorship-agmt-att12-13oct01.htm.
  • Eligibility Dispute Resolution Policy, and can be viewed at http://www.information.aero/news/edrp.doc.

Registrant agrees that failure to abide by any provision of this agreement or any relevant domain name dispute policy may be considered by Registrar or the Sponsor as a material breach and that Registrar or the Sponsor may provide a notice describing the breach to the Registrant. If ,within 30 days of the date of the notice, the Registrant fails to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to the Registrar or the Sponsor (as the case may be) that it has not breached its obligations, then Registrar or the Sponsor may delete Registrant’s registration of the domain name. Any such breach by a Registrant shall not be taken to be excused simply because the Registrar or the Sponsor did not act earlier in response to that, or any other, breach by the Registrant. Notice may be given by mail, facsimile, email or other electronic means.

DotAsia Organisation Limited also reserves the right to freeze a Registered Name such as placing a domain name on hold, lock, or other status during the resolution of a dispute.

Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, DotAsia Organisation Limited, the Registry Operator of the .ASIA TLD, is and shall be an intended third party beneficiary of this Agreement. As such, the parties to this Agreement acknowledge and agree that the third party beneficiary rights of DotAsia Organisation Limited have vested and that it has relied on its third party beneficiary rights under this Agreement in agreeing to EnCirca being a registrar for the .ASIA TLD.

You agree that Registry Operator may modify the dispute policy from time to time. Registry Operator will post any such revised policy on its Web site at least thirty (30) calendar days before it becomes effective. You agree that, by maintaining the reservation or registration of your domain name or .name email address after modifications to the dispute policy become effective, you have agreed to these modifications. You acknowledge that if you do not agree to any such modification, you may terminate this Agreement. We will not refund any fees paid by you if you terminate your Agreement with us.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS – DISPUTE RESOLUTION
You represent and warrant that the name you are registering is your legal, personal name, or that you own the intellectual property rights to that name. If at any time it is discovered that it is not your legal personal name, or your intellectual property, GNR and EnCirca reserve the right to cancel your registration without refund, or transfer it to another party. In addition to the above you agree to be bound by the provisions of the entire Eligibility Requirements Dispute Resolution Policy available at http://www.nic.name/downloads/erdrp.pdf.

WAIVER OF LIABILITY
You agree that GNR and EnCirca will have no liability of any kind for any loss or liability resulting from (i) the processing of registration requests prior to live SRS launch, including, without limitation, the ability or inability to obtain a domain name or email address registration using these processes; or (ii) any dispute over any domain name or email address registration, including the decision of any dispute resolution proceeding related to any of the foregoing.

NAME EMAIL
(a) The service for which you have registered may, at your option, include .name Email. To the extent you opt to use .name Email, you are obliged to do so in accordance with all applicable legislation and are responsible for all use of .name Email, including the content of messages sent through .name Email.

(b) You undertake to familiarize yourself with the content of and to comply with the generally accepted rules for Internet and email usage. This includes, but is not limited to the Acceptable Use Policy, available at http://www.nic.name/downloads/aup.pdf, as well as the following restrictions. Without prejudice to the foregoing, you undertake not to use .name Email:

  • (i) to encourage, allow or participate in any form of illegal or unsuitable activity, including but not restricted to the exchange of threatening, obscene or offensive messages, spreading computer viruses, breach of copyright and/or proprietary rights or publishing defamatory material;
  • (ii) to gain illegal access to systems or networks by unauthorized access to or use of the data in systems or networks, including all attempts at guessing passwords, checking or testing the vulnerability of a system or network or breaching the security or access control without the sufficient approval of the owner of the system or network;
  • (iii) to interrupt data traffic to other users, servers or networks, including, but not restricted to, mail bombing, flooding, Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, willful attempts to overload another system or other forms of harassment; or
  • (iv) for spamming, which includes, but is not restricted to, the mass mailing of unsolicited email, junk mail, the use of distribution lists (mailing lists) which include persons who have not specifically given their consent to be placed on such a distribution list. Users are not permitted to provide false names or in any other way to pose as somebody else when using .name Email.

(c) Registry Operator reserves the right to implement additional anti-spam measures, to block spam or mail from systems with a history of abuse from entering Registry Operator’s .name Email.

(d) You understand and agree that Registry Operator may delete material that does not conform to clause (c) above or that in some other way constitutes a misuse of .name Email. You further understand and agree that Registry Operator is at liberty to block your access to .name Email if you use .name Email in a way that contravenes this Agreement. You will be given prior warning of discontinuation of the .name Email unless it would damage the reputation of Registry Operator or jeopardize the security of Registry Operator or others to do so. Registry Operator reserves the right to immediately discontinue .name Email without notice if the technical stability of .name Email is threatened in any way, or if you are in breach of this Agreement. On discontinuing .name Email, Registry Operator is not obliged to store any contents or to forward unsent email to you or a third party.

(e) You understand and agree that to the extent Registry Operator is required by law to disclose certain information or material in connection with your .name Email, Registry Operator will do so in accordance with such requirement and without notice to you.

NAMEWATCH
The NameWatch service allows monitoring of all registrations on the .name gTLD. Any registration of a .name, both Domain Names and .name Email, where the trademark/string is included, will trigger notification. This will allow the intellectual property holder early identification of potential threats. The reports, which cover both Domain Names and .name Email, are available daily, weekly or monthly and can significantly increase the trademark holder’s protection and follow-up of the trademark; provided that neither The Global Name Registry, Limited (“Registry Operator”) nor we provide no guarantee that any potential threats will be identified.

DISCLAIMER
Registry Operator will make every effort to maintain the completeness and accuracy of any results of the NameWatch, but cannot guarantee that the results are error-free. You understand, therefore, that any reports provided through the NameWatch service are on an “as is” basis without any warranties. BY USING NAMEWATCH REPORTS AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED HEREIN OR THEREIN, IT IS ACCEPTED THAT REGISTRY OPEATOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES OF ANY KIND ARISING OUT OF, OR IN CONNECTION WITH, THE REPORT OR THE INFORMATION CONTAINED, NOR OMISSIONS OR MISSING INFORMATION. THE RESULTS OF ANY NAMEWATCH REPORT CANNOT BE RELIED UPON IN CONTEMPLATION OF LEGAL PROCEEDINGS WITHOUT FURTHER VERIFICATION NOR DO SUCH RESULTS CONSTITUTE A LEGAL OPINION. Acceptance of the results of the NameWatch service constitutes acceptance of these terms, conditions and limitations.

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
You agree that Registry Operator will have no liability of any kind for any loss or liability resulting from (i) the processing of NameWatch reports; or (ii) any dispute over any .name Domain Name, .name Email address or Defensive Registration, including the decision of any dispute resolution proceeding related to any of the foregoing.

DEFENSIVE REGISTRATIONS
Defensive Registrations allow owners of trademarks to exclusively pre-register on the .name space and create a protective barrier for their trademarks. A “Defensive Registration” is a registration granted to a registrant which aims to prevent a third party from registering either (i) any variation of a trademark (a Premium Defensive Registration), or (ii) an exact match of a trademark (a Standard Defensive Registration), which registration will not resolve within the domain name system.

DEFENSIVE REGISTRATIONS DISPUTES
You agree that, if your Defensive Registration is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in our Defensive Registration dispute policy in effect at the time of the dispute. You agree that in the event a Defensive Registration dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold EnCirca harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth below in this Agreement. If we are notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your Defensive Registration, you agree not to make any changes to your Defensive Registration record without our prior approval. We may not allow you to make changes to such Defensive Registration record until (i) we are directed to do so by the judicial or administrative body, or (ii) we receive notification by you and the other party contesting your Defensive Registration and use of our domain name registration services that the dispute has been settled.

CONSENT
Defensive Registrants may be asked to give their consent to allow individuals to share a part of their space. For example, if you have filed a Defensive Registration on PQR (which blocks out ANYSTRING.PQR.name and PQR.ANYSTRING.name), you may be asked to give consent to John Pqr to register JOHN.PQR.name if he can prove that PQR is his name. In such a circumstance, you will have 10 days to respond to a request for consent.

RESERVATION OF RIGHTS
EnCirca and Registry Operator, expressly reserve the right to deny, cancel or transfer any Defensive Registration that it deems necessary, in its discretion, to protect the integrity and stability of the Registry, to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement, in compliance with any dispute resolution process, or to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of EnCirca and/or Registry Operator, as well as their affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors and employees. EnCirca and Registry Operator also reserve the right to freeze a Defensive Registration during a resolution of a dispute.

Obligations of the Name Holder
You (also identified as “Registered Name Holder(s)”) agree to any additional terms as set forth in any Registration Agreement as publicly posted at Registry Operator’s website. The Registry Operator reserves the right to deny, cancel or transfer any domain name (each, a “Registered Name”) registration or transaction, or place any Registered Name(s) on registry lock, hold or similar status, as it deems necessary, in its unlimited and sole discretion: (i) to comply with specifications adopted by any industry group generally recognized as authoritative with respect to the Internet (e.g., RFCs), (ii) to correct mistakes made by Registry Operator, Registry Service Provider, Registry Verification Agent, Registrar and/or any other contractually obligated vendors in connection with a domain name registration, or (iii) for the non-payment of Fees. Any information that you provide to the Registrar and/or the Registry Operator related to your registration and use of your .realestate domain name(s), and any information related to your public use of your .realestate domain name(s), including your and/or your related entity or entities’ use of such (including screen captures of such use) (collectively, your “Information”), may be used by Registry Operator in performance of the obligations, promotion and duties of Registry Operator, and may be made publicly available, as required by ICANN or pursuant to registry operation. You consent to the use, copying, reproduction, distribution, publication, modification, and other processing of your Information, your .realestate domain and any website resolving at your .realestate domain by Registry Operator and Registry Operator’s designees and agents in a manner consistent with Registry Operator’s obligations and rules, guidelines and procedures for maintaining and operating the .realestate registry, including promotion thereof. You consent to use of the Information for the purposes set forth above, and irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of your Information by Registry Operator, Registrar, or any designees and agents thereof. The Registered Name Holder is required to comply with ICANN standards, policies, procedures, and practices for which Domain Name Registry has monitoring responsibility in accordance with their Registry Agreement or other arrangement with ICANN. The Registered Name Holder is also required to comply with all applicable national, state or local law, regulation or court order in relation to its operations and registrations of the Registry TLD.

Acceptable Use and Anti-Abuse
The Registered Name Holder is prohibited from distributing malware, abusively operating botnets, phishing, piracy, trademark or copyright infringement, fraudulent or deceptive practices, counterfeiting or otherwise engaging in activity contrary to applicable law, and consequences for such activities, include suspension of the domain name.

Registrant Compliance
Registrant shall take all necessary action(s) as directed by EnCirca or Registry Operator in relation to compliance actions, directives, or instructions from ICANN, and/or as otherwise directed by Registry Operator in its sole discretion as being reasonably necessary for the provision of Registry Services, and enforcing compliance with Registry Operator’s Operational and Security Requirements and Operations Pledge, including monitoring for compliance regarding the Registered Name.

Indemnity Clause
Registered Name Holder to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the Registry Operator, Registry Service Provider, Registry Verification Agent, and other contractually obligated vendors, and in each case, their Affiliates, partners, subcontractors, subsidiaries, divisions, shareholders, directors, officers, employees, accountants, attorneys, insurers, agents, predecessors, successors, and assigns, from and against any and all claims, demands, damages, losses, costs, expenses, causes of action, or other liabilities of any kind, whether known or unknown, including reasonable legal and attorney’s fees and expenses, in any way arising out of, relating to, or otherwise in connection with, the Registered Name Holder’s domain name registration. This indemnification obligation of Registered Name Holder shall survive the termination or expiration of the Registration Agreement.

Premium Registration Pricing
