1.1 We make no representation that the domain name You wish to register is capable of being registered by or for You or that it will be registered in your name. You should therefore not

by You to us shall be non-refundable not withstanding refusal by the naming authority to register your desired name.
1.3 We shall have no liability in respect of the use by You of any domain name; any dispute between You and any other person must be resolved between the parties concerned in such
dispute. If any such dispute arises, we shall be entitled, at our discretion and without giving any reason, to withhold, suspend, or cancel the domain name. We shall also be entitled to
make representations to the relevant naming authority but will not be obliged to take part in any such dispute.

of the term of your Domain Name Registration as selected, recorded, and paid for upon registration of the Domain Name. Should You choose to renew or otherwise lengthen the term of
your Domain Name Registration, then the term of this Registration Agreement will be extended accordingly. Should You transfer your domain name or should the

disputes concerning the SLD name.
