b) the domain name complies with the Policy.

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.
You agree that transfer of your
domain name(s) services shall be governed by ICANN's transfer policy, available
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.
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,
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.
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
Neither party shall be in default or liable for any loss or damage
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
include but are not limited to "Force Majeure", defined above.
