Introduction:

The following sections are the agreement for service between the applicant for a domain name (the registrant) and DotAlliance Inc. (the registrar). An agent acting as a third party must inform the applicant of their obligations under this agreement. The spirit of this agreement is that we are acting as registrar for the you, you are acting in good faith, the domain shall remain the property of the registrar until all fees are paid in full and you agree that you will cover all any any costs of any action taken as a result of this registration. In addition to this agreement you must follow all applicable rules and regulations for the registry of that domain registrant agreement. Your application for a domain using our services constitutes acceptance of this agreement on your part.

Applicable Laws:

The laws of British Columbia, Canada shall be in effect for purposes of this agreement and any services provided by us to you.

Terms of Service:

Unless otherwise specified the term of the agreement for service is for as long as you hold any domain name or any service (including but not limited to Domain registration(s), web hosting, domain and/or email forwarding, or other services) with DotAlliance, unless terminated by other party. The terms of this service apply to all domains names registered with DotAlliance, and any services.

Language:

In case of any disruptancy between the English version, and any other language versions of this document, the English version shall preside in all cases.

Fees and Payment:

All fees are payable immediately upon submission of an application or other request for service. Submission of a registration or other request for service constitutes an agreement to pay all fees in full.

There will be a charge of $200US for all Non Sufficent Funds Cheques, stop payment orders or credit card refusal to pay.
The ownership of the domain shall remain with the registrar until such times as all fees are paid in full.

All fees paid to Registration authorities by us on your behalf are not refundable to us and therefore cannot be returned to you. The portion of your fees payable to us are also not refundable under any circumstances except at our sole reasonable discretion.

Rights:

As part of the registration process you state you have the legal right to apply for domain either for your own use or the use of the third party for whom you are acting as agent and agree that the application for or granting of a domain does not confer any additional rights than you currently have for that domain.
You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any DotAlliance, Registry Operator, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure not inconsistent with a government-adopted policy, to correct mistakes by us, another registrar or reseller, or the applicable Registry in registering the name or for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.

You further agree to hold us harmless from any action taken against you, us, the applicable registration authority, any of our suppliers and/or partners/affiliates as a result of your application.
DotAlliance in our sole discretion, reserves the right to refuse to register or reserve your chosen domain name or provide you with any other Services. In the event unable or do not register or reserve your domain name or fail to provide you with other Services, or we delete your domain name or cancel your other Services within a thirty (30) calendar day period, we agree to refund your applicable fee(s) solely for the domain or service we were unable to provide, at our sole discretion. You agree that we shall not be liable to you for loss or damages that may result from our refusal to register, reserve, or delete your domain name or provide you with other Services. We reserve the right to delete or transfer your domain name following registration if we believe the registration has been made possible by a mistake made either by us or by a third party. We also reserve the right to delete or transfer any domains involved (or appear to us to be involved, at our sole discretion) in cases of fraud, associated with any illegal activity in any world-wide jurisdiction, associated with or attempting to impersonate another website ("phishing"), spamming, or any other illegal or prohibited activity, at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to suspend a domain name during resolution of a complaint or dispute.

Additionally you agree that this agreement does not confer any protection from objection to the registration or use of this domain, nor does it constitute and indorsement of any kind from any other parties.

Reservation of Rights:

DotAlliance and Registry Operator expressly reserve the right to deny, cancel or transfer any registration that it deems necessary, in its discretion, to protect the integrity and stability of registrars systems, business processes or 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 DotAlliance and/or Registry Operator, as well as their affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors and employees. DotAlliance and Registry Operator also reserve the right to freeze a domain name during a resolution of a dispute. In case of a pricing error, DotAlliance reserves the right to correct the error by either applying the correctly advertised price, or refunding the client and reversing the action or service.

Disclosure and use of information:

You agree and acknowledge that we will make domain name registration information you provide available to to the Registry Operator, and to other third parties as applicable. You further agree and acknowledge that we may make publicly available, or directly available to third party vendors, some, or all, of the domain name registration information you provide, for purposes of inspection (such as through our WHOIS service) or other purposes as required or permitted by applicable laws. You hereby consent to any and all such disclosures and use of information provided by you in connection with the registration of a domain name (including any updates to such information), whether during or after the term of your registration of the domain name. You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have against us, including but not limited to those arising from disclosure or use of such information by us or any other party. You may access your domain name registration information in our possession to review, modify or update such information though accessing our domain manager or similar service at any time that it is available. We will not process data about any identified or identifiable natural person that we obtain from you in a way incompatible with the purposes and other limitations which we describe in this Agreement. We will take reasonable precautions to protect any personal/private information (such as passwords) from any loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.

Remedy:

Should we be unable to supply services to you, the maximum allowable remedy is to return any applicable fees to you.

Information:

You agree that you have the right or have acquired the right to provide us with the information required on the application. You warrant that the information is accurate as required in the application process. You further agree to update the information as required within at most three (3) business days of any changes to that information. We will protect the supplied information (aside from publicly published "WHOIS" information) according to our privacy policy. We will not be responsible for loss of information as a result of acts of unauthorized persons or by our or their use of your systems or services.

Changes to Agreement:

We reserve the right to modify this agreement from time to time to time or makes changes the services provided at any time. Changes to the agreement will be posted at this url. Continued use of our services after such changes will constitute you acceptance of the new agreement.

Disputes:

By registering a domain you agree to be bound by the applicable registry's "Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy" now in effect and as amended from time to time. That policy is considered part of this agreement. Continued use of your domain and our services will constitute your acceptance of the modified policy.
You agree that in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold us 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 use of our domain name registration services, you agree not to make any changes to your domain name record without our prior approval. We may not allow you to make changes to such domain name 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 registration and use of our domain name registration services that the dispute has been settled.
In addition you agree to be bound by the ICANN Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (“Dispute Policy”) as presently written and posted on http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp.htm and as shall be amended from time to time. You acknowledge that if you do not agree to any such modifications, you may request that your domain name be deleted from the domain name database.
If this domain is being registered on behalf of (or is owned by) another individual or organisation, you acknowledge that under no condition are you permitted to hold the domain as collatoral for any reason (including but not limited to other unpaid debts or expenses, such as unpaid web design bills) other than renewal payments of the domain itself. The domain owner may at any point renew the domain directly with the registry or registrar, at full or negotiated retail price should any attempt be made to charge an exorbitant renewal fee.
The agent affirms that they have notified the appropriate people of their obligations under this policy, and have obtained their explicit approval.

Breach of Agreement:

If you should breach any part of this agreement, we reserve the right to terminate the agreement. Any outstanding fees remain payable. Our obligation to you will terminate upon notification to you by electronic mail, postal mail or phone.
You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement including but not limited to any failure to abide Registry Requirements, any operating rule or policy or the Dispute Policy provided by us, may be considered by us to be a material breach. If you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to us, that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement, then we may delete the registration or reservation of any or all of your domain name(s). Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or any other breach by you.
REVOCATION. Your wilful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, your wilful failure promptly to update information provided to us, or any failure to respond (within 15 days) to inquiries by us addressed to the email address of the registrant, the administrative, billing or technical contact appearing in the "Whois" directory with respect to a domain name concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the registration shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and be a basis for cancellation of the domain name registration. Any information collected by us concerning an identified or identifiable natural person ("Personal Data") will be used in connection with the registration of your domain name(s) and for the purposes of this Agreement.
You acknowledge that providing inaccurate information or failing to update information promptly will constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for suspension or termination of Services to you. You further agree that your failure to respond for over ten (10) calendar days to inquiries by us concerning the accuracy of account and WHOIS contact information shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for suspension or termination of Service(s) to you. As indicated elsewhere in this Agreement, you understand that it is important for you to regularly monitor email sent to the email address associated with your account and WHOIS contact information because, among other reasons, if a dispute arises regarding a domain name(s) or other Service(s), you may lose your rights to the domain name(s) or your right to receive the Service(s) if you do not respond appropriately to an email sent in conjunction therewith.

b) the domain name complies with the Policy.
c) it has provided, or will provide, to each third party individual whose personal details the Registrant has provided to Registrar, the same information about use of those details as set out in the "Privacy Policy" section in this agreement.
d) each third party individually has consented to use of their personal data for the purposes set out in this agreement.

Disclaimer of Warranty:

We do not warranty under any circumstances expressed or implied, that our services will meet your requirements, that our service will be uninterrupted, secure, timely or free from errors. Retrieval of information to your systems as part of our services is done solely at your risk. Nothing we say or do will constitute a warranty of any type.

Transfers:

You agree that transfer of your domain name(s) services shall be governed by ICANN's transfer policy, available at http://www.icann.org/transfers/, and as amended from time to time. You agree that we may place a "Transfer Lock" on your domain name and that this will prevent your domain name from being transferred without your authorisation, though we are not required to do so. Not all registries allow us to provide this protection. By allowing your domain name services to remain locked, you provide express objection to any and all transfer requests until the lock is removed. To transfer your domain name(s) you should first login to your account with and disable "Domain Protection". You may also need to obtain your EPP "AuthCode" which may be found on the same page. As per ICANN policies, only the registrant and the administrative contacts listed in the WHOIS information may approve or deny a transfer request. (Individual country-code registries may have different rules). Without limitation, domain name services may not be transferred within 60 days of initial registration, within 60 days of a transfer, if there is a dispute regarding the identity of the domain name registrant, if you are bankrupt, or if you fail to pay fees when due. (This limit is 30 days for .CA domains). We will follow the procedures for both gaining and losing registrars as outlined in ICANN's transfer policies. Transfer requests typically take five business days to be processed. A transfer request will be aborted if the domain reaches its expiry date during these five days. You may be required to resubmit a transfer request if there is a communication failure or other problem at either our end or at the registry. AS A CONSEQUENCE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR FAILURE OF A TRANSFER IF THE TRANSFER PROCESS IS INITIATED CLOSE TO THE END OF A REGISTRATION TERM.

Privacy Policy:

You agree and consent that we will make available the domain name registration information you provide or that we otherwise maintain to the following parties: ICANN, the registry administrator(s), and to other third parties as ICANN and applicable laws may require or permit (including through web-based and other on-line WHOIS lookup systems), whether during or after the term of your domain name registration services of the domain name. You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of such information. Additionally, you acknowledge that ICANN may establish or modify the guidelines, limits and/or requirements that relate to the amount and type of information that we may or must make available to the public or to private entities, and the manner in which such information is made available. Information regarding ICANN's guidelines and requirements regarding WHOIS can be found at http://www.icann.org/registrars/wmrp.htm, http://www.icann.org/registrars/wdrp.htm, and elsewhere on the ICANN website at http://www.icann.org/index.html.
You agree and acknowledge that we own all database, compilation, collective and similar rights, title and interests worldwide in our domain name database, and all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database. You further agree and acknowledge that we own the following information for those registrations for which we are the registrar: (a) the original creation date of the registration, (b) the expiration date of the registration, (c) the name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available fax number of all contacts for the domain name registration, (d) any remarks concerning the registered domain name that appear or should appear in the WHOIS or similar database, and (e) any other information we generate or obtain in connection with the provision of domain name registration services, other than the domain name being registered, the IP addresses of the primary nameserver and any secondary nameservers for the domain name, and the corresponding names of those nameservers. We do not have any ownership interest in your specific personal registration information outside of our rights in our domain name database.

Grace Period:

Renewal and Transfer of Expired Domain Names on Your Behalf: You agree that we may, but are not obligated to, allow you to renew your domain name after its expiration date has passed. You agree that after the expiration date of your domain name registration and before it is deleted or renewed, we may direct your domain name to an IP address designated by us, which may host content specified by us or a third party, including without limitation, a parking, construction or other temporary page which may contain advertisements for product and service offerings, at our sole determination, and you agree that we may place our contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name. Should you not renew your domain name during any applicable grace period, you agree that unless you notify us to the contrary we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the domain name to a third party on your behalf (such a transaction is hereinafter referred to as a "Direct Transfer"), and your failure to so notify us before the domain name expiration date shall constitute your consent to such a Direct Transfer. Should your domain be eligible for a Direct Transfer, you may be eligible to receive a portion of the funds received by us, less any applicable expenses, at our sole discretion. You agree that we shall have no obligation to pay you, and you shall have no right to receive, any percentage of the Net Proceeds unless you respond in full with all requested information within ninety (30) days after the date of any Direct Transfer notifications sent to you.
If we delete your domain, some registries allow the use of a "Redemption Restore".
The fee for this service is $200, although we reserve the right to charge less in extenuating circumstances.

Force Majeure:

Neither party shall be in default or liable for any loss or damage resulting from delays in performance or from failure to perform or comply with terms of this agreement (other than the obligation to make payments, which shall not be affected by this provision) due to any causes beyond its reasonable control, which causes include but are not limited to "Force Majeure", defined above.
