applicable. 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 contained in the Sunrise Dispute Policy or Dispute Policy, as applicable.
POLICY.You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject

policy, (1) to correct mistakes by us or the Registry in registering the name
or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.
AGENCY.Should you intend to license use of a domain name to a third party

and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate
to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with
the domain name.You shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of
the domain name.You represent that you have provided notice of the terms and
conditions in this Agreement to a third party licensee and that the third party

is pertinent to the quality or operation of our services and those of our service
partners.These announcements will be predominately informative in nature and
may include notices describing changes, upgrades, new products or other information
to add security or to enhance your identity on the Internet.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.You agree that our entire liability, and your
exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services(s) provided under this Agreement
and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the amount you paid for
such Service(s). Neither we nor our contractors or third party beneficiaries
shall be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential
damages resulting from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for
the cost of procurement of substitute services. Because some jurisdictions
do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental

to: (1) loss or liability resulting from access delays or access interruptions;

been advised of the possibility of such damages.In no event shall our maximum
liability exceed five hundred ($500.00) dollars.
INDEMNITY.You agree to release, indemnify, and hold us, our contractors,
agents, employees, officers, directors, affiliates and third party beneficiaries
harmless from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney's fees,
of third parties relating to or arising under this Agreement, the Services provided
hereunder or your use of the Services, including without limitation infringement
by you, or someone else using the Service of any intellectual property or other
proprietary right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any of our
operating rules or policy relating to the Service(s) provided. You also agree
to release, indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions
contained in the Dispute Policy.When we are threatened with suit by a third
party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify
us; your failure to provide those assurances shall be a breach of your Agreement

person (the Transferee") you shall require the Transferee to agree in writing
to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your domain name
will not be transferred until we receive such written assurances or other reasonable
assurance that the Transferee has been bound by the contractual terms of this
Agreement (such reasonable assurance as determined by us in our sole discretion)
along with the applicable transfer fee. If the Transferee fails to be bound
in a reasonable fashion (as determine by us in our sole discretion) to the terms
and conditions in this Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void.You
acknowledge that you will not be entitled to change registrars during the first
sixty (60) days following the registration of your domain name.
BREACH.You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement,
any operating rule or policy or the Dispute Policy provided by us, may be considered
by us to be a material breach and that we may provide a written notice, describing
the breach, to you.If within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of such notice,
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 your domain name.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.

chosen domain name does not confer immunity from objection to either the registration,
reservation, or use of the domain name.
