Registration Agreement

Domain Registration Agreement

This Registration Agreement is a contract that sets out the rights and responsibilities of UK2 Group Ltd. (UK2, we, us or our) and registrants of domain names through UK2 (Customer, you or your). This Registration Agreement incorporates other agreements between UK2 and you, such as the registration agreements and dispute resolution procedures set out in Part 2.

You acknowledge that for domain name purchases, UK2's acceptance of any domain name registration application will take place at the offices set out in its registrar agreement: Gibraltar, British Overseas Territory.


Part 1

1. Services

1.1 The term "Services: refers to the domain name registration services provided to you by, or through, UK2 and set out in detail in Part 1, paragraph 2. This Registration Agreement may have additional terms set out in Part 2 that apply only to specific domain name extensions. Please read Part 2 carefully.

1.2 We each become bound by this Registration Agreement when you submit a domain name application (Application) for the Services (Effective Date). We are under no obligation to provide Services to you until your Application is approved by us.

1.3 UK2 has partnered with the Cloud Group Limited to provide domain registration and management via the Cloud Group Limited ICANN Accreditation. As such UK2 is bound to policies and procedures set forth by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) under an agreement between Cloud Group Limited and ICANN (the ICANN Agreement). UK2 is also an accredited domain name registrar with other registries (Third Party Registrars). Each of their policies are incorporated into this Registration Agreement. You acknowledge that UK2 may modify this Registration Agreement if necessary to comply with the ICANN Agreement, our agreements with Third Party Registrars, or as otherwise provided in this Registration Agreement. Such a modification shall not be a material breach of this Registration Agreement, nor shall you be entitled to terminate this Registration Agreement , based on such a change. UK2 shall not be liable for any loss or damage resulting directly or indirectly from such changes. UK2 shall provide you with thirty days written notice of any changes to this Registration Agreement.

1.4 The features, prices and other aspects of the Services you purchase from UK2 are set out on appendix A to this Agreement. UK2 continually evaluates the features, prices and other aspects of the Services. From time-to-time, UK2 may make changes in these features and prices, and is under no obligation to offer these new features and prices to you. If these new features and services are offered to you, they will be added to this Agreement when you begin using them, or offering them to your customers. The prices of Services provided by UK2 or third parties are not guaranteed. Those prices may change after the Effective Date. While the prices set out in Appendix A are fixed during your contract term, they may be increased following that term. UK2 will give you one month's notice prior to any changes in the Fees.

1.5 On occasion, we may need to communicate with you by email about issues related to billing, service changes, additions and modifications to the Services. It is your responsibility to provide a working, monitored, email address to us.

2. Registration of Domain Names

2.1 You understand that submitting information to us to register a domain name does not result in immediate registration. You have presented us with an Application to register a domain name. This Application must be processed before it can be submitted for registration. We are not liable for any loss or damages resulting directly or indirectly from, or responsible to you in any way for failure to register a domain name.

2.2 In your Application, you must provide the following:
2.2.1. The name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and (where available) fax number of the registrant (owner) of the domain name;
2.2.2 The name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and (where available) fax number of the administrative contact for the domain name;
2.2.3 The name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and (where available) fax number of the technical contact for the domain name;
2.2.4 The name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and (where available) fax number of the billing contact for the domain name;
2.2.5 The names and IP addresses of the primary name server and secondary name server(s) for the domain name; and
2.2.6 Any other information that may be required from Third Party Registrars (collectively, the "Registration Information").

2.3 You are required to provide us with accurate Registration Information, and update the Registration Information immediately to reflect any changes. If you are providing Registration Information on behalf of another party, you represent that you have disclosed to them how their Registration Information will be used. Further, you will have no greater use of this information than that set out in our Privacy Policy. We may ask you from time to time to verify the accuracy of the Registration Information. You are required to respond to our request within 15 calendar days or the time period set out in the relevant paragraph of Part 2. Your failure to respond, or provide us with accurate or updated Registration Information, is a material breach of this Registration Agreement and grounds for cancellation of the domain name. If the domain name is cancelled, you may lose any registration rights you previously held. UK2 is not liable for any loss or damages resulting from such cancellation. You must access and change the Registration Information through your API.

2.4 You are required to provide us with your own full contact information, and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information, to allow us and others to resolve any problems that arise in connection with the domain name. You are liable for any harm caused by the wrongful use of the domain name, even if you have licensed its use to another party.

2.5. If you choose to license the domain name to a third party, you remain the actual registrant. You are required to provide us with your Registration Information, in addition to that of the third party to whom you license the domain name. If you receive a request from a party who provides you with reasonable evidence that they will sustain actionable harm, you are required to disclose the current contact information given to you by the entity to whom you license the domain name. Your failure to promptly disclose this information to the person or entity requesting it shall be considered your acceptance of liability for that harm.

2.6 You agree that a domain name you register through us may be suspended, cancelled or transferred if required by ICANN, us, a court, or a Third Party Registrar, if necessary to correct a mistake, or as applicable during or following the resolution of a dispute regarding the domain name.

2.7 The person, or entity, listed as the owner (as set out in paragraph 2.2.1 above) in our records will be considered by us as having full right, title and authority in the domain name.

2.8 For the first sixty days following your initial registration, renewal, or transfer, of the domain name, you agree that you may not transfer it to another domain name registrar. After that time, you may transfer your domain name, pursuant to the ICANN domain name transfer policy, available here: http://www.icann.org/transfers/policy-12jul04.htm, or in the applicable provision of Part 2.

2.9 Under the following circumstances we may be required to put the domain name on hold, and suspend resolution of the domain name to a website: (1) we are required to do so under the ICANN Agreement; (2) the domain name violates this Registration Agreement; or (3) based on our reasonable judgment, such a suspension is necessary. We are not liable for any loss or damages directly or indirectly caused by a domain name hold or suspension.

2.10 Unless another dispute resolution policy is set out in Part 2, as a purchaser of a domain name, you agree to be bound by the ICANN domain name dispute policy (UDRP), which may be found here: http://www.icann.org/dndr/udrp/policy.htm.

3. Use of the Registration Information

3.1 Your Registration Information will be used as set out in our Privacy Policy, which may be found here: http://www.uk2group.com/domain-names/privacy.php.

3.2 We will make the Registration Information that you provide, or that we otherwise maintain, available to ICANN, Third Party Registrars, and to such other parties as ICANN or applicable laws may require or permit. You agree that we may make publicly available, or directly available to third party vendors, some, or all, of the Registration Information you provide, for purposes of inspection (such as through our WHOIS service) as otherwise allowed by the relevant paragraph of Part 2. We represent that unless otherwise stated in this Registration Agreement, the Registration Information will only be used as set out in this Registration Agreement.

3.3 You agree that we may use the Registration Information in the manner described in paragraph 3.2 above. If you are presenting UK2 with a Registration Application on behalf of a third-party, you represent that you have provided the third party with the notices set out in this Section, and have obtained their consent for such use of the Registration Information. You may access the Registration Information via our API. Some of the Registration Information may contain data about any identified or identifiable natural person (Personal Data). This Personal Data will only be disclosed as set out in this Registration Agreement and in our Privacy Policy. We agree to take reasonable precautions to protect the Personal Data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction, but we are not liable for loss or damages resulting from such misuse.

4. Domain Name Transfers

4.1 You agree to be bound by the domain name transfer agreement located here: http://www.icann.org/transfers/policy-12jul04.htm.

4.2 Only the individual or entity set out in our records as the account owner, or the registrant and/or administrative contract listed in the Registration Information may transfer a domain name, or respond to a transfer request. You must secure an EPP AuthCode in order to transfer domains in an EPP registry.

4.3 ICANN policies allow us to refuse to transfer a domain name if there is a dispute about the ownership of a domain name to be transferred, if you are bankrupt, or if your account has been suspended by us. It is very important that you follow the transfer process closely. Factors beyond our control, such as the expiration of your domain name, misrouted email, or failure of a payment to process, may cause the domain transfer process to fail. It is your responsibility to ensure that the process is carried through to completion.

5. Payment

The fees and charges for the Services are set out on Appendix A (Fees).

6. Term

This Agreement will begin on the Effective Date and continue for one year (Initial Term). After the expiration of the Initial Term, the Agreement will renew for successive periods of equal length (Renewal Term). Prior to the expiration of the Initial Term, or any Renewal Term, we may adjust the Fees by providing you with one monthÕs prior written notice. Should you notify us in writing that you object to the new Fees, this Agreement will be terminated at the end of the Initial Term or Renewal Term. If you continue to use the Services after the expiration of such a term, you will have been deemed to accept the new Fees.

7. Termination

7.1 We reserve the right to immediately terminate this Registration Agreement, and suspend or cancel your Services, and, if necessary, your domain name: (i) for a violation of any provision of this Registration Agreement or any other Agreement, including third party agreements that apply to you through this Registration Agreement; your violation of our policies or general Internet community standards and/or (iii) your failure to pay any amounts due. This right of termination is without prejudice to any other rights we may have. You are not entitled to any type of notice or protest should we exercise these rights. You will not receive a refund if the Services are terminated pursuant to this paragraph.

7.2 One party may also terminate this Registration Agreement upon the occurrence of a material breach which has not been cured by the other party within 30 days of their receipt of written notice of the breach. Notices of material breach must contain sufficient detail for the party against whom the assertion of material breach is directed, to identify the breach and attempt to take corrective action.

7.3 Upon termination, your account will be closed and the Services terminated. We have no responsibility to forward email, or other communications, once your account is closed. You are encouraged to keep the Services active during a transition period to avoid a lapse of your domain name registration.

7.4 Our auto renewal, deletion and expiry policies are set out at http://www.uk2group/domain-names/expiry.php.

You agree to indemnify us for any claims made against us based on this representation. We reserve the right, in our sole and exclusive discretion, to deny, lock, suspend, cancel or transfer any domain name if we believe that doing so will protect the domain name registry, is necessary to comply with any applicable laws or regulations, or to avoid liability to UK2. We may freeze domain names during a dispute brought pursuant to the UDRP or the relevant domain name dispute provision set out in Part 2.

9.2 You represent and warrant to UK2 that: (i) you own outright, or have a license to use, all items necessary for us to make the Services available to you, including, but not limited to, the domain name, if applicable; and (ii) you own, or have the right to use, all information, words, or other ideas contained in the domain name.

However, you may not display the ICANN or ICANN-Accredited Registrar logo, nor may you in any way represent yourself as accredited by ICANN unless you have specific written authorization from ICANN to do so.

3.2. You will have sole responsibility for assuring compliance with the provisions of your contracts with End Users, and for otherwise reasonably protecting our rights in the Services, including, but not limited to, our right to be free from abuse or misconduct by End Users.

3.3. You will include in your contracts with End Users terms and provisions at least as protective of our rights, and those of our partners, as Parts 1 and 2 of this Agreement and the ICANN Agreement. Any agreement with your End Users shall include all provisions set out in the ICANN Registrar Accreditation Agreement, and any Consensus Policies that a registrar is required to include in their contracts with domain name registrants. You must also identify us as the sponsoring registrar, or provide a or some other method of identifying us. In addition, upon your End User's request, you must identify us as the registrar.

3.4. We will escrow the name you give us, email address, telephone number, fax number, and if provided, the postal address of the billing contact for each domain name registered. However, if you select our domain name privacy service, this information WILL NOT be escrowed. What this means is that should our business fail, a third party would not be able to contact you to facilitate recovery or transfer of your domain name.

3.5. ICANN may establish a webpage containing information that must be provided to registrants. If this page is made available to us, and we are required to display a link to it, you will also be required to display a link to it. We agree to provide notice of this requirement to you.

3.6. You are required to comply with all of our reasonable requests to demonstrate compliance with this Agreement, our Registration Agreement, and any agreements or policies incorporated by reference. Should a site visit be required, you consent to such a visit.
