2. Changes and Modifications

2.1 You acknowledge and agree that we may change the terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement either by obtaining your consent or giving you notice. The period of notice we provide will depend on the nature of the change. If:

  1. the change will benefit you, we may make the change immediately and are not required to notify you prior to the change;
  2. the change is required by law, the Registry, any applicable regulatory body (for example, ICANN) or for a technical reason (including for security), we will provide as much notice as reasonable and practicable for us;
  3. we consider that the change has a significant and detrimental impact on our customers generally, we will provide least 30 days’ notice prior to the change (subject to our required compliance with (b)), and
  4. for all other changes, we will provide at least 30 days’ notice prior to the change.

2.2 Notice of a change may be given by posting the new version of the Registration Agreement on our website at https://melbourneit.web-staging.com.au/ (Melbourne IT Website). Changes will be effective as stated above, and if you do not agree to be bound this Registration Agreement as last revised, do not use (or continue to use) your domain name or remain as Registrant.

2.3 We may also notify you of any changes via your provided details information, including your email address.

3. Payments and Fees

3.1 You agree to pay any and all prices and fees specified on the Melbourne IT Website relating to a domain name at the time of your application. We will not process a domain name registration or renewal application or otherwise until the relevant fee(s) have been paid and cleared.

3.2 We expressly reserve the right to change or modify our pricing and fees, and any changes will become effective immediately once published on the Melbourne IT Website.

3.3 A Registry may offer non-uniform variable pricing for domain names depending on the type being registered or renewed, such that the fees for a domain name registration or renewal may differ from other domain names in the same New gTLD.

3.4 If you have purchased a domain name for a period of months or years, changes or modifications in prices and fees shall be effective when the domain name in question is due for renewal.

3.5 If you have registered your domain name as a direct customer of Melbourne IT (and not via a reseller of Melbourne IT), Melbourne IT will attempt to renew your domain name in accordance with our Renewal Policy.

3.6 Any failure to pay any required domain name related fee (as applicable) when due (as evidenced for example by, without limitation, your credit card company notifying us of you disputing the payment of, or refusing to pay such fee, or where your credit card payment or other form of payment has been declined or reversed) will entitle us to immediately cease the registration or renewal of the domain name (as applicable). If for any reason we are unable to take the payment from the payment details you have on file or have provided to us, and you fail to respond to our notices, your domain name registration will expire. It is your responsibility to keep all payment details current and accurate, which includes the expiration date of any credit cards you have advised to us.

3.7 Melbourne IT will not be responsible for cancelled domain names that you fail to renew, either automatically or manually in the timeframes specified on the Melbourne IT Website or as notified to you by Melbourne IT. In any case, if you fail to renew your domain name in a timely fashion, additional charges may apply. If you signed up for additional Melbourne IT services which relate or correspond to your domain name at the time of its registration (for example, our Private Registration service), these services may also automatically be renewed when your domain name registration is up for renewal, and you will incur the applicable additional renewal fee unless you cancel in advance. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to ensure that your domain name registration is renewed.

3.8 All prices and fees are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly stated, even if your domain name is suspended, terminated, or transferred prior to the end of the applicable registration term.

4. Renewals and Expiration

4.1 All renewals will be subject to the terms of this Registration Agreement (including without limitation, clause 3), and you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the terms of this Registration Agreement (as amended) for all renewed domains and/or services.

4.2 You acknowledge that a Registry may offer a further period after a renewal deadline during which a registrant may renew their cancelled or deleted domain name before it is available for re-registration by other parties (Registry Grace Period). If your domain name has not otherwise been dealt with by Melbourne IT under the terms of this Registration Agreement, following the renewal deadline being passed your domain name will be cancelled or deleted at the Registry after which you may be eligible for a further specific Registry Grace Period. During this Registry Grace Period, you may redeem your domain name by paying to Melbourne IT the applicable redemption fee (the current redemption fee is set out at the Melbourne IT Website and is subject to change). It is important for you to understand that not every Registry provides an ‘Registry Grace Period’ for expired domain names, and so you may not be able to renew your domain name if it has expired and been cancelled.

4.3 Registry Grace Periods may vary for different New gTLDs, so please refer to the specific Registry Policies of the applicable New gTLD. In the event there is a conflict between the provisions of this paragraph and those Registry Policies, the terms of the relevant Registry Policies will prevail. During any Registry Grace Period your domain name may be parked by Melbourne IT.

4.4 In the event you do not renew your domain name prior to the renewal deadline, or where available, prior to the end of a Registry Grace Period, Melbourne IT may, in its sole discretion, cancel and delete your domain name at the Registry making it available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis or transfer it to another registrant on your behalf.

VIII. Domain Names. The Registry may permanently or temporarily reserve at any time from registration, including, without limitation, domain names:

  1. reserved for operations and other purposes, including without limitation certain Premium Names, which the Registry may change from time to time;
  2. Reserved or restricted to comply with ICANN Policies, including those reserved for certain third parties; or
  3. still pending, in process, or otherwise not available, such as domain names that are still pending processing of Sunrise registration;

(referred to as a Reserved Domain Name).

VI. Additional Registration Agreement Terms. The following terms and conditions (the Registration Terms) supplement, and are incorporated into, this Registration Agreement between you (you), a registrant, and Melbourne IT. These Registration Terms are part of the Registry Policies. In the event of any conflict between these Registration Terms and any other terms of your Registration Agreement with Melbourne IT, these Registration Terms shall prevail:

1. By applying to register or renew a domain name in this Registry (hereinafter referred to as an Application) or by registering one or more domain name(s), the Registrant hereby acknowledges that they have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of the Registration Agreement, as well as the other documents in the Registry Policies.

The most recent Registry Policies apply to any and all domain name applications, domain names, and domain name registrations in this Registry and explain the terms, conditions, rights, and obligations between the Registry, the registrar and the Registrant. Those parts of the Registry Policies that are not part of the text of these Registration Terms are incorporated herein by reference.

The Registry may, in its sole discretion, modify the Registry Policies from time to time with ninety (90) days prior written notice. The Registry shall post the current version of the Registry Policies on the Registry Website.

The Registrant’s continued registration and/or use of a domain name following the date the most current version of the Registry Policies is posted to the Registry Website, which shall be the effective date, constitutes the Registrant’s acceptance of such revised Registry Policies. In the event that the Registrant does not wish to be bound by the revised Registry Policies, the Registrant’s sole remedy is to cancel the registration of any domain name covered by the Registry Policies, by following the appropriate Registry and/or registrar Policies regarding such cancellation.

2. Registration Fees. The Registrant shall pay to Melbourne IT the appropriate registration fee (Registration Fee) applicable at the time the Registrant submits its Application to Melbourne IT. Payment of the Registration Fee shall be made in accordance with the requirements of Melbourne IT, and the Registry Policies are effective at the time of submission of such application or at the time of payment, whichever is earlier. All Registration Fees paid pursuant to this Registration Agreement are non-refundable except as provided for herein. It is the responsibility of Melbourne IT to pay a separate registration fee to the Registry in connection with such domain name application, and the Registry is not bound to accept any application until such separate Melbourne IT Registration Fee is paid. The Registry will not refund any Registration Fee or other fee to the Registrant in the event of non–performance by Melbourne IT; the Registry disclaims any and all liability for any losses incurred as a result of any Melbourne IT non-performance including where a third party may obtain registration of a domain name for which an Application has been submitted.

3. Registrant Information. The Registry reserves and may exercise the right to suspend and/or terminate the Registrant’s registration of the domain name if: (i) information provided by the Registrant to Melbourne IT and/or Registry appears, in the Registry’s sole discretion, to be false, inaccurate, incomplete, unreliable, or misleading in any respect; or (ii) the Registrant fails to maintain, update, and/or keep all information true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable. In such a circumstance, the Registry may, in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Melbourne IT, suspend the Registrant’s domain name(s) upon the Registry’s receipt of knowledge that such information is deficient. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section will constitute a material breach of these Registration Terms and the Registration Agreement, which will entitle the Registry or Melbourne IT to terminate this Registration Agreement, resulting in suspension and/or deletion of the domain name, immediately upon such breach without any refund of the Registration Fee and without any obligation of notice to the Registrant.

  1. The Registrant acknowledges and agrees that all personal information about the Registrant which is supplied to the Registry and/or Melbourne IT may be publicly available to third parties via a public “Whois” service, as required by ICANN and as allowed by applicable laws.
  2. Registrants must provide all contact information as required by Melbourne IT. Providing true, current, complete, and accurate contact information is an absolute condition of registration of a domain name within the TLD. If any information provided during registration or subsequent modification to that information is false, inaccurate, or misleading or conceals or omits pertinent information, the Registry may terminate, suspend, place on hold, or cancel the domain name registration of any Registrant without notification and without refund to the Registrant.
  3. The Registrant is responsible for responding in a timely fashion to communications from Melbourne IT or the Registry regarding any domain name registered by or on behalf of the Registrant.
  4. The Registry retains the irrevocable right, but expressly disclaims any obligation, in its sole discretion, to monitor and/or scan any content published or sent under a domain name registered in the Registry, including where such content involves an intrusion or causes modification of Registry or other data, providing such scanning is for the purpose of identifying Internet security vulnerabilities or the presence of malicious software or content capable of causing harm or disruption to the systems of other Internet users or the Registry, or content which is illegal. The Registry may delegate this right to its agents, representatives, successors, and assigns or choose not to exercise the right.

4. Registrant’s Agents. The Registrant understands, acknowledges, and agrees that by using the domain name, the Registrant accepts the terms and conditions of and is bound by these Registration Terms and the Registration Agreement (including the Registry Policies), even if an agent (such as an Internet service provider, domain name retailer, domain name reseller, or employee) entered into the Registration Agreement on the Registrant’s behalf, and even if the Registrant has not itself read these Registration Terms or the Registration Agreement and/or the Registry Policies. Further, the Registrant understands, acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for all information submitted by its agent. The Registry may, but will not be bound to, cancel the Registration Agreement due to any errors or omissions by the Registrant’s agent in the registration process or thereafter (e.g., if such agent provides incorrect information), as the agent’s apparent authority will be deemed actual authority and will suffice to bind the Registrant. By acting on the Registrant’s behalf, such agent represents and warrants to the Registry that the agent is authorised to bind the Registrant hereto and that it has fully and thoroughly advised the Registrant of the terms and conditions of this Registrant Agreement (including the Registry Policies).

5. Scope of Registration. On payment of the Registration Fee to Melbourne IT (and after payment by Melbourne IT to the Registry of the separate registrar registration fee), and after acceptance of the application, the Registrant will be entitled to a limited license for the exclusive use of the applied-for domain name which, in the event of sale, assignment, sublicense, or otherwise, the registration and use of the domain name shall at all times be subject to continuing compliance with the terms of these Registration Terms and the Registration Agreement and the Registry Policies, for the duration of the Term. However, the Registrant may not sublicense, use, display, exploit, or register a domain name in any manner which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegate, may constitute illegal activity or cause or permit any contravention or violation of the Registry Policies or these Registration Terms or the Registration Agreement, whether or not in connection with the registered domain name. In the event of any assignment, sub-license or similar transaction, the Registrant remains responsible for complying with all terms and conditions of these Registration Terms and the Registration Agreement, and accepts liability for any harm caused by such sublicensor or third party’s use of the domain name in contravention of these Registration Terms or the Registration Agreement or the Registry Policies. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section by the Registrant and/or its agent, assignee, sub- licensor, or any other third party, will constitute a material breach of these Registration Terms and the Registration Agreement, which will entitle the Registry to terminate this Registration Agreement or take such other action as it deems necessary or desirable, without any refund of the Registration Fee, at the Registry’s sole discretion. Further, in the event of such termination, the Registry or Melbourne IT may, in such party’s sole discretion, refuse registration of domain names by Registrant or discontinue services with respect to the Registrant’s domain name or any other domain name which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegate, it deems to be related, including but not limited to other domain names registered by the same Registrant and/or agent. In case of such refusal or discontinuation without cause (“cause” being defined as dishonouring any payment made to an Melbourne IT and/or the Registry or any violation of the Registry Policies), neither the Registry nor Melbourne IT shall be liable for any loss, damage, or other injury whatsoever, including but not limited to economic or consequential loss and/or damages, resulting from the Registry’s or Melbourne IT’s refusal to register, or decision to discontinue services for, the Registrant’s domain name, including to the extent permitted by applicable law in cases of negligence.

6. Registrant Representations and Warranties. The Registrant represents, warrants, and covenants that:

  1. the Registrant understands that registration entitles the Registrant only to a limited license for the use of the domain name(s) for the term paid for, subject to compliance with these Registration Terms, the Registry Policies and other applicable rules and laws, including those concerning trademarks and other types of intellectual property rights, as these may now exist or be revised from time to time;
  2. the Registrant is either: (a) an identifiable human individual over the 18 years of age or otherwise recognized as being able to enter into a legally-binding contract under applicable law; or, (b) a properly described and legally-recognized entity within its national jurisdiction, e.g., corporation, limited liability company, partnership, association, society, or proprietary limited company for which the Registrant has legally binding authority to enter into this Agreement and the Registry Policies;
  3. the Registrant will not, directly or indirectly, through registration or use of the domain name or otherwise:

    3. registering a domain name for the purpose of unfairly disrupting the business of a third party;
    4. deliberately register as a domain name misspellings of another person or entity’s personal, company or brand name(s) or confusingly similar domain name(s) in order to pass-off or trade on the business, goodwill or reputation of another, or otherwise infringe upon a third party’s intellectual property rights;
    5. grant or purport to grant a security interest or other encumbrance on or over the domain name unless: such security interest or other encumbrance does not exceed the rights of the Registrant in the domain name as limited by this Agreement, does not impair the Registrant’s ability to fulfil the Registrant’s obligations under this Agreement, and does not impose or purport to impose obligations on the Registry beyond the obligations owed by the Registry to the Registrant in the absence of such a security interest or encumbrance;
  4. the Registrant meets, and will continue to meet for the whole of the domain registration term, any and all eligibility criteria prescribed in the Registry Policies for registering and using the domain name;
  5. the Registrant will maintain all information provided pursuant to the requirements of the Registration Agreement;
  6. the Registrant has not previously submitted an Application for registration of a domain name for the same character string where:

    2. the domain name application has previously been rejected;
  7. any content, material, email, or webpage, contained on any Uniform Resource Locator (URL), website, or webpage accessing, utilizing, or accessed by means of the domain name, complies with the Acceptable Use Policy, whether incorporated directly into, forwarded, or framed by means of the domain name or otherwise;

  9. the Registrant’s use of the domain name and of any webpage, email, or URL accessed by or utilizing the domain name will comply with the requirements of the Acceptable Use Policy.

7. Breach and Cure. Failure of a Registrant to abide by any provision of these Registration Terms or the Registration Agreement and all other Registry Policies will be considered a material breach. In the event of such material breach, the Registry may in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Melbourne IT, suspend, lock, modify, or transfer the domain name and/or may provide written (which may be by email) notice to the Registrant describing the material breach. In any event, where the Registry gives notice, by way of Melbourne IT, to the Registrant, that there is a breach, the Registrant shall rectify, cure, or refute within thirty (30) days. In the event a breach is not rectified, cured, or refuted by the Registrant to Registry’s sole satisfaction within the thirty (30) day period, the Registry may cancel or otherwise modify the Registrant’s registration of and license to use the domain name without refund and without further notice, and pursue any and all legal remedies it may have against the Registrant. Any such breach by the Registrant shall not be waived in the event that the Registry did not act earlier in response to the specific breach, or any other breach, by Registrant. In the event of a breach which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or Melbourne IT, causes or is likely to cause immediate harm to the public interest or the Registry, or which violates or is likely to violate any applicable law or regulation, then an Melbourne IT and/or the Registry may, with the cooperation of Melbourne IT, modify, suspend, transfer, or terminate services to the Registrant without written notice; the modification, suspension, transfer, or termination of services constituting notice to Registrant that such a breach has occurred. See below for important limitations on the liability of the Registry and Melbourne IT with regard to acts by such parties under this Section.

The Registry may delegate authority to:

  1. investigate any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies; and
  2. take action to cure or sanction any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies, including the authority to immediately suspend or transfer use of a domain name upon detection by a service provider or notification, e.g., from an Internet security agency, that the domain name may contain malicious software or otherwise violates the Acceptable Use Policy.

In such circumstances, neither the Registry, Melbourne IT, nor their respective employees, directors, officers, affiliates, representatives, delegates, shareholders, agents, successors, and/or assigns nor any external service provider or Internet security agency triggering the suspension or transfer shall be liable to the Registrant or any other person on account of any service disruption or loss, irrespective of the nature of that loss.

8. Disputes Between Registrants. The Registrant acknowledges that the Registry cannot, and does not, screen or otherwise review any Application to verify that the Registrant has the legal right to use a particular character string as or in a domain name, or that the Registrant will not infringe the rights of a third party. In the event that any third party disputes the Registrant’s legal right to use, display, exploit, or register the domain name in any fashion, including allegations that infringing material is displayed on or forwarded, including via the use of frames, to a website which is resolved via the domain name or that the registration or use of the domain name itself infringes the third party’s rights, the Registrant shall act in accordance with and agree to be bound by the ICANN-mandated URS, UDPR, applicable ICANN Consensus Policies, and the Registry’s CRS and DRS. The Registrant will be solely liable in the event that the Registrant’s use of the domain name constitutes an infringement or other violation of a third party’s rights.

9. Indemnity. The Registrant shall indemnify and hold harmless the Registry, Melbourne IT, and such parties’ officers, directors, shareholders, owners, managers, employees, agents, representatives, contractors, affiliates, successors, assigns, and attorneys (the Registry Related Parties) from and against any and all claims made by third parties against the Registrant or Registry Related Parties, including, but not limited to, all loss, liability, claims, demands, damages, cost or expense, causes of action, suits, proceedings, judgments, awards, executions and liens, including lawyers or attorneys’ fees, which fees shall be determined on a full indemnity basis (which lawyers or attorneys shall be hired at the sole discretion of the indemnified party), and costs (including claims without legal merit or brought in bad faith), relating to or arising under this Agreement, the registration or use of domain name registration or other services, or the domain name itself, including the Registrant’s use, display, exploitation, or registration of the domain name, as well as for any infringing or otherwise damaging content displayed or otherwise made available on or by means of the domain name. If an indemnified party is threatened by claims or suit of a third party, the indemnified party may seek written assurances from the Registrant concerning the Registrant’s indemnification obligations but will not be required to do so in order to rely upon this indemnity. Failure to provide such written assurances in a form satisfactory to the indemnified party is a material breach of the Registration Agreement. Failure of the Registrant to fully indemnify the indemnified party in a timely manner may result in termination, suspension, transfer, or modification of the domain name registration services and any such termination, suspension, transfer, or modification shall in no way prejudice or substitute for an indemnified party’s right to seek indemnification by way of litigation or otherwise.

10.

The exclusive venue for such action shall be the Courts of New Zealand. The Registrant waives any right to object to venue or jurisdiction based on inconvenient forum or for any other reason, and the Registrant waives any statutory or other right pursuant to the laws of the jurisdiction in which Registrant resides to have a case relating to this Agreement adjudicated or resolved in that jurisdiction.

VI. Additional Registration Agreement Terms. . The following terms and conditions (the Registration Terms) supplement, and are incorporated into, this Registration Agreement between you (the Registrant, or you), a registrant, and Melbourne IT, the ICANN Accredited registrar that you have used to register or reserve a name in the .CEO TLD. As between you and CEOTLD Pty Ltd, (the Registry, or we), in the event of any conflict between these Registration Terms and any other terms of your Registration Agreement with Melbourne IT, these Registration Terms shall prevail.

These Registration Terms are part of the Registry’s Registry Policies, which form a cohesive framework and must be read in conjunction with one another, as well as with other applicable agreements, policies, laws, and regulations which, taken together, represent the entirety of your obligations and responsibilities with regard to any .CEO TLD domain name registration.

Terms and Conditions

1. By applying to register or renew a domain name in the .CEO TLD (hereinafter referred to as an Application) or by registering one or more domain name(s), the Registrant hereby acknowledges that they have read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement (including without limitation these Registration Terms), as well as the other documents in the Registry Policies.

The most recent Registry Policies apply to any and all domain name applications, domain names, and domain name registrations in the .CEO TLD and explain the terms, conditions, rights, and obligations between the Registry, the Registrar, and the Registrant. Those parts of the Registry Policies that are not part of the text of this Registration Agreement are incorporated into this Registration Agreement by this reference.

The Registry may, in its sole discretion, modify the Registry Policies at any time and from time to time. The Registry shall post the current version of the Registry Policies on the Registry Website. The Registry may inform Melbourne IT of changes to the Registry Policies via email, and Melbourne IT may in turn notify the Registrant of any changes thereto; the Registrant agrees that such email shall not be considered spam; however, neither the Registry nor Melbourne IT shall not be obligated to provide such notice via email or otherwise. The Registrant agrees to check the Registry Website periodically for Registry Policy updates.

The Registrant’s continued registration and/or use of a domain name following the date the most current version of the Registry Policies is posted to the Registry Webpage, which shall be the effective date, constitutes the Registrant’s acceptance of such revised Registry Policies. In the event that the Registrant does not wish to be bound by the revised Registry Policies, the Registrant’s sole remedy is to cancel the registration of any domain name covered by the Registry Policies, by following the appropriate Registry and/or Melbourne IT policies regarding such cancellation.

2. Registration Fee. The Registrant shall pay to Melbourne IT the appropriate registration fee (Registration Fee) applicable at the time the Registrant submits its Application to Melbourne IT. Payment of the Registration Fee shall be made in accordance with the requirements of Melbourne IT, and the Registry Policies are effective at the time of submission of such application or at the time of payment, whichever is earlier. All Registration Fees paid pursuant to this Registration Agreement are non-refundable except as provided for herein. It is the responsibility of Melbourne IT to pay a separate registration fee to the Registry in connection with such domain name application, and the Registry is not bound to accept any application until such separate registration fee is paid by Melbourne IT. The Registry will not refund any Registration Fee or other fee to the Registrant in the event of non–performance by Melbourne IT; the Registry disclaims any and all liability for any losses incurred as a result of any non-performance by Melbourne IT including where a third party may obtain registration of a domain name for which an Application has been submitted.

3. Term and Renewal Term. The Registrant’s exclusive registration of the domain name shall continue for the term specified in the accepted application (the Term), subject to the Registry’s and/or Melbourne IT’s right to suspend or terminate the domain name pursuant to this Registration Agreement and the Registry Policies, which are incorporated herein by reference. Domain name registrations may be made for an annual term of between one (1) and ten (10) years.

4. Registrant Information. The Registrant shall ensure that the information submitted by or on behalf of the Registrant to Melbourne IT in connection with registration of the domain name or otherwise (Registrant Information), will, throughout the Term, comply with the Registry Policies as may be in effect from time to time and will remain true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable. The Registrant shall maintain, update, and keep the Registrant Information true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable by immediately making such changes in their account with Melbourne IT as registrar. The Registry reserves and may exercise the right to suspend and/or terminate the Registrant’s registration of the domain name if: (i) information provided by the Registrant to Melbourne IT and/or Registry appears, in the Registry’s sole discretion, to be false, inaccurate, incomplete, unreliable, or misleading in any respect; or (ii) the Registrant fails to maintain, update, and/or keep the Registrant Information true, current, complete, accurate, and reliable. In such a circumstance, the Registry may, in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Melbourne IT, suspend the Registrant’s domain name(s) upon the Registry’s receipt of knowledge that such information is deficient. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section will constitute a material breach of this Registration Agreement, which will entitle the Registry to terminate this Registration Agreement, resulting in suspension and/or deletion of the domain name, immediately upon such breach without any refund of the Registration Fee and without any obligation of notice to the Registrant. The Registry shall not be liable to the Registrant or any third party either for taking action, or failing or declining to take action for the Registrant’s violation of this section.

  1. The Registrant acknowledges and agrees that all personal information about the Registrant which is supplied to the Registry and/or Melbourne IT may be publicly available to third parties via a public “Whois” service, as required by ICANN and as allowed by applicable laws.
  2. Registrants must provide all contact information as required by Melbourne IT. Providing true, current, complete, and accurate contact information is an absolute condition of registration of a domain name within this TLD. If any Registrant Information provided during registration or subsequent modification to that information is false, inaccurate, or misleading or conceals or omits pertinent information, the Registry may, in its sole discretion, terminate, suspend, place on hold, or cancel the domain name registration of any Registrant without notification and without refund to the Registrant.
  3. The Registrant is responsible for responding in a timely fashion to communications from Melbourne IT or the Registry regarding any domain name registered by or on behalf of the Registrant.
  4. The Registry retains the irrevocable right, but expressly disclaims any obligation, in its sole discretion, to monitor and/or scan any content published or sent under a domain name registered in the Registry, including where such content involves an intrusion or causes modification of Registry or other data, providing such scanning is for the purpose of identifying Internet security vulnerabilities or the presence of malicious software or content capable of causing harm or disruption to the systems of other Internet users or the Registry, or content which is illegal. The Registry may delegate this right to its agents, representatives, successors, and assigns or choose not to exercise the right. The Registry shall not be liable to the Registrant or any third party either for taking action, or failing or declining to take action for the Registrant’s violation of this section.

5. Registrant’s Agents. The Registrant understands, acknowledges, and agrees that by using the domain name, the Registrant accepts the terms and conditions of and is bound by this Registration Agreement (including the Registry Policies incorporated into this Registration Agreement), even if an agent (such as an Internet service provider, domain name retailer, domain name reseller, or employee) entered into this Registration Agreement on the Registrant’s behalf, and even if the Registrant has not itself read this Registration Agreement and/or the Registry Policies. Further, the Registrant understands, acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for all information submitted by its agent. The Registry may, but will not be bound to, cancel this Registration Agreement due to any errors or omissions by the Registrant’s agent in the registration process or thereafter (e.g., if such agent provides incorrect Registrant Information), as the agent’s apparent authority will be deemed actual authority and will suffice to bind the Registrant. By acting on the Registrant’s behalf, such agent represents and warrants to the Registry that the agent is authorised to bind the Registrant hereto and that it has fully and thoroughly advised the Registrant of the terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement (including the Registry Policies incorporated into this Registration Agreement).

6. Scope of Registration. On payment of the Registration Fee to Melbourne IT and after payment by Melbourne IT to the Registry of the separate Melbourne IT registrar registration fee, and after acceptance of the application, the Registrant will be entitled to a limited license for the exclusive use of the applied-for domain name which, in the event of sale, assignment, sublicense, or otherwise, the registration and use of the domain name shall at all times be subject to continuing compliance with the terms of this Registration Agreement and the Registry Policies, for the duration of the Term. However, the Registrant may not sublicense, use, display, exploit, or register a domain name in any manner which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegee, may constitute illegal activity or cause or permit any contravention or violation of the Registry Policies, whether or not in connection with the registered domain name. In the event of any assignment, sub-license or similar transaction, the Registrant remains responsible for complying with all terms and conditions of this Registration Agreement, and accepts liability for any harm caused by such sub-licensor or third party’s use of the domain name in contravention of this Registration Agreement or the Registry Policies. The Registrant acknowledges that a breach of this Section by the Registrant and/or its agent, assignee, sub-licensor, or any other third party, will constitute a material breach of this Registration Agreement, which will entitle the Registry to terminate this Registration Agreement or take such other action as it deems necessary or desirable, without any refund of the Registration Fee, at the Registry’s sole discretion. Further, in the event of such termination, the Registry or Melbourne IT may, in such party’s sole discretion, refuse registration of domain names by Registrant or discontinue services with respect to the Registrant’s domain name or any other domain name which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or its delegee, it deems to be related, including but not limited to other domain names registered by the same Registrant and/or agent. In case of such refusal or discontinuation without cause (“cause” being defined as dishonouring any payment made to Melbourne IT and/or the Registry or any violation of the Registry Policies), neither the Registry nor Melbourne IT shall be liable for any loss, damage, or other injury whatsoever, including but not limited to economic or consequential loss and/or damages, resulting from the Registry’s or Melbourne IT’s refusal to register, or decision to discontinue services for, the Registrant’s domain name, including to the extent permitted by applicable law in cases of negligence.

7. Registrant Representations and Warranties. The Registrant represents, warrants, and covenants that:

  1. the Registrant understands that registration entitles the Registrant only to a limited license for the use of the domain name(s) for the Term, subject to compliance with this Registration Agreement, the Registry Policies and other applicable rules and laws, including those concerning trademarks and other types of intellectual property rights, as these may now exist or be revised from time to time. Registrant agrees to be bound and abide by any ICANN Consensus Policies including, but not limited to, the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS), as now in effect and as may be adopted and/or amended at any time and from time to time;
  2. neither the registration of the domain name, nor the manner in which it is to be directly or indirectly used by the Registrant or otherwise, will or may infringe the legal rights or intellectual property rights of a third party;
  3. the Registrant will use or display the domain name in accordance with the laws, rules, and regulations of any applicable national, state, territorial, or international or other laws, rules, and regulations, and ICANN Consensus Policies, and will not use the domain name in any way which violates or may violate a right of the Registry or any third party;
  4. any violation of these Registry Policies may result in lock, suspension, or termination of the domain name in question or other domain names the Registrant may have registered in the TLD, in the Registry’s sole discretion;
  5. the information provided by the Registrant is true, complete and accurate, and the Registrant will update said information in a timely manner if it changes;
  6. the Registrant is either: (a) an identifiable human individual over the 18 years of age or otherwise recognized as being able to enter into a legally-binding contract under applicable law; or, (b) a properly described and legally-recognized entity within its national jurisdiction, e.g., corporation, limited liability company, partnership, association, society, or proprietary limited company for which the Registrant has legally binding authority to enter into this Registration Agreement and the Registry Policies;
  7. the Registrant will not, directly or indirectly, through registration or use of the domain name or otherwise:
    1. register a domain name for the purpose of unlawfully diverting trade from another business or website;
    2. deliberately register as a domain name misspellings of another person or entity’s personal, company or brand name(s) or confusingly similar domain name(s) in order to pass-off or trade on the business, goodwill or reputation of another, or otherwise infringe upon a third party’s intellectual property rights;
    3. grant or purport to grant a security interest or other encumbrance on or over the domain name unless: such security interest or other encumbrance does not exceed the rights of the Registrant in the domain name as limited by this Registration Agreement, does not impair the Registrant’s ability to fulfil the Registrant’s obligations under this Registration Agreement, and does not impose or purport to impose obligations on the Registry beyond the obligations owed by the Registry to the Registrant in the absence of such a security interest or encumbrance;
  8. the Registrant meets, and will continue to meet for the whole of the Term, any and all eligibility criteria prescribed in the Registry Policies for registering and using the domain name;
  9. the Registrant will maintain the Registrant Information provided pursuant to the requirements of this Registration Agreement;
  10. the Registrant has not previously submitted an Application for registration of a domain name for the same character string where:
    1. the Registrant is relying on the same eligibility criteria for both domain name Applications; and
    2. the domain name application has previously been rejected;
  11. any content, material, email, or webpage, contained on any Uniform Resource Locator (URL), website, or webpage accessing, utilizing, or accessed by means of the domain name, complies with the Acceptable Use Policy, whether incorporated directly into, forwarded, or framed by means of the domain name or otherwise;
  12. the Registrant has not relied upon any representation or promise which does not appear in this Registration Agreement;
  13. the Registrant’s use of the domain name and of any webpage, email, or URL accessed by or utilizing the domain name will comply with the requirements of the Acceptable Use Policy.

8. Breach and Cure. Failure of a Registrant to abide by any provision of this Registration Agreement and all other Registry Policies will be considered a material breach. In the event of such material breach, the Registry may in its sole discretion, with the cooperation of Melbourne IT, suspend, lock, modify, or transfer the domain name and/or may provide written (which may be by email) notice to the Registrant describing the material breach. In any event, where the Registry gives notice, by way of Melbourne IT, to the Registrant, that there is a breach, the Registrant shall rectify, cure, or refute within thirty (30) calendar days. In the event a breach is not rectified, cured, or refuted by the Registrant to Registry’s sole satisfaction within the thirty (30) day period, the Registry may cancel or otherwise modify the Registrant’s registration of and license to use the domain name without refund and without further notice, and pursue any and all legal remedies it may have against the Registrant. Any such breach by the Registrant shall not be waived in the event that the Registry did not act earlier in response to the specific breach, or any other breach, by Registrant. In the event of a breach which, in the sole discretion of the Registry or Melbourne IT, causes or is likely to cause immediate harm to the public interest or the Registry, or which violates or is likely to violate any applicable law or regulation, then Melbourne IT and/or the Registry may, with the cooperation of Melbourne IT, modify, suspend, transfer, or terminate services to the Registrant without written notice; the modification, suspension, transfer, or termination of services constituting notice to Registrant that such a breach has occurred. See below for important limitations on the liability of the Registry and Melbourne IT with regard to acts by such parties under this Section.

The Registry may delegate authority to:

  1. investigate any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies; and
  2. take action to cure or sanction any breach or potential breach of the Registry Policies, including the authority to immediately suspend or transfer use of a domain name upon detection by a service provider or notification, e.g., from an Internet security agency, that the domain name may contain malicious software or otherwise violates the Acceptable Use Policy.

In such circumstances, neither the Registry, Melbourne IT, nor their respective employees, directors, officers, affiliates, representatives, delegees, shareholders, agents, successors, and/or assigns nor any external service provider or Internet security agency triggering the suspension or transfer shall be liable to the Registrant or any other person on account of any service disruption or loss, irrespective of the nature of that loss.

9. Disputes Between Registrants. The Registrant acknowledges that the Registry cannot, and does not, screen or otherwise review any Application to verify that the Registrant has the legal right to use a particular character string as or in a domain name, or that the Registrant will not infringe the rights of a third party. In the event that any third party disputes the Registrant’s legal right to use, display, exploit, or register the domain name in any fashion, including allegations that infringing material (as defined in the Acceptable Use Policy) is displayed on or forwarded, including via the use of frames, to a website which is resolved via the domain name or that the registration or use of the domain name itself infringes the third party’s rights, the Registrant shall act in accordance with and agree to be bound by the ICANN-mandated URS, UDRP, applicable ICANN Consensus Policies, and the Registry’s CRS. The Registrant will be solely liable in the event that the Registrant’s use of the domain name is found to constitute an infringement or other violation of a third party’s rights.

10. Indemnity. The Registrant shall indemnify and hold harmless the Registry, Melbourne IT, and such parties’ officers, directors, shareholders, owners, managers, employees, agents, representatives, contractors, affiliates, successors, assigns, and attorneys (the Registry Related Parties) from and against any and all claims made by third parties against the Registrant or Registry Related Parties, including, but not limited to, all loss, liability, claims, demands, damages, cost or expense, causes of action, suits, proceedings, judgments, awards, executions and liens, including lawyers or attorneys’ fees, which fees shall be determined on a full indemnity basis (which lawyers or attorneys shall be hired at the sole discretion of the indemnified party), and costs (including claims without legal merit or brought in bad faith), relating to or arising under this Registration Agreement, the registration or use of domain name registration or other services, or the domain name itself, including the Registrant’s use, display, exploitation, or registration of the domain name, as well as for any infringing or otherwise damaging content displayed or otherwise made available on or by means of the domain name. If an indemnified party is threatened by claims or suit of a third party, the indemnified party may seek written assurances from the Registrant concerning the Registrant’s indemnification obligations but will not be required to do so in order to rely upon this indemnity. Failure to provide such written assurances in a form satisfactory to the indemnified party is a material breach of this Registration Agreement. Failure of the Registrant to fully indemnify the indemnified party in a timely manner may result in termination, suspension, transfer, or modification of the domain name registration services and any such termination, suspension, transfer, or modification shall in no way prejudice or substitute for an indemnified party’s right to seek indemnification by way of litigation or otherwise.

11. DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. THE REGISTRANT ACKNOWLEDGES AND AGREES THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE REGISTRY AND THE REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF PROGRAMS OR OTHER DATA, OR OTHERWISE RELATING TO THE USE, SUSPENSION, TERMINATION OR THE INABILITY TO USE THE DOMAIN NAME OR IN ANY OTHER WAY RELATED TO THE DOMAIN NAME, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING IN THE CASE OF NEGLIGENCE BY THE REGISTRY AND/OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES), OR OTHERWISE.

THE REGISTRANT’S SOLE REMEDY UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL BE THE RESUPPLY OF THE DOMAIN NAME OR, AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE REGISTRY, A REFUND OF THE REGISTRATION FEE, RENEWAL FEE (IF THE CIRCUMSTANCE OCCURRED DURING A RENEWAL TERM) OR REDEMPTION FEE, WHICH REMEDY THE REGISTRANT AGREES CONSTITUTES THE ONLY POSSIBLE DIRECT DAMAGES FLOWING FROM THIS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT.

THE REGISTRANT’S SOLE REMEDY FOR THE REGISTRY OR REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES’ BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT OR NEGLIGENCE OF ANY TIME SHALL BE, AT THE SOLE DISCRETION OF THE REGISTRY OR THE REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES, THE RESUPPLY OF THE DOMAIN NAME OR A REFUND OF THE REGISTRATION FEE, REDEMPTION FEE OR RENEWAL FEE (IF THE BREACH OCCURS DURING A RENEWAL TERM), WHICH REMEDY THE REGISTRANT AGREES CONSTITUTES THE ONLY POSSIBLE DIRECT DAMAGES FLOWING FROM THIS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT.

13. Governing Law/Forum Selection. For all disputes in which the Registry may be or is a party, this Registration Agreement shall be exclusively governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Australia and applicable to contracts made and wholly performed therein, without regard to conflict of laws principles. The Registrant hereby irrevocably consents to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of the Commonwealth of Australia, for any and all claims or disputes directed against the Registry and which arise out of, purport to enforce, construe, or otherwise relate to the domain name, this Registration Agreement, or Registry Policies. The exclusive venue for such action shall be the Courts of the Commonwealth of Australia. The Registrant waives any right to object to venue or jurisdiction based on inconvenient forum or for any other reason, and the Registrant waives any statutory or other right pursuant to the laws of the jurisdiction in which Registrant resides to have a case relating to this Registration Agreement adjudicated or resolved in that jurisdiction. By way of information and not as a term binding against the Registry, disputes not involving the Registry as a party may be governed by a governing law and/or forum selection clause contained in a separate agreement, if any, between the Registrant and such other disputant (for example, disputes between Melbourne IT and a Registrant may be governed by a separate agreement, if any, between the Registrant and Melbourne IT); provided, however, that no such separate agreement may modify or waive either the Registry’s or Registrant’s consent to exclusive choice of law, jurisdiction, and venue in the Commonwealth of Australia for disputes in which the Registry is or may be a party, as described above.

14. Ownership of Information and Data. Subject to any limitations of the privacy laws of the Commonwealth of Australia, Registrant agrees and acknowledges that the Registry and/or any Registry delegee shall own all database, compilation, collective, and similar rights, title, and interests worldwide in any domain name database(s) and all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database(s), and that such domain name database may include, without limitation, any information supplied by Registrant or by the Registry that appears or should appear in the Whois or similar information repositories, and any other information generated or obtained in connection with providing domain name registration services.

15. Severability. If any provision of this Registration Agreement or the Registry Policies is held invalid, unenforceable, or void, the remainder of the Registration Agreement or the Registry Policies, as applicable, shall not be affected thereby and shall continue in full force and effect as nearly as possible to reflect the original intention of Melbourne IT, Registry, and Registrant in executing this Registration Agreement.

16. No Waiver. The failure of either party at any time to enforce any right or remedy available to it under this Registration Agreement with respect to any breach or failure by the other party shall not be a waiver of such right or remedy with respect to any other breach or failure by the other party.

17. Full Integration. This Registration Agreement, as it may be modified at any time and from time to time as provided for herein, together with the Registry Policies, as they may be modified at any time and from time to time, expressly incorporated herein by reference, constitutes the entire agreement between the Registrant and Melbourne IT for the benefit of the Registry relating to the domain name. No prior or contemporaneous written, oral, and/or electronic representation, negotiation, or agreement form a part of this Registration Agreement, and this Registration Agreement supersedes all prior written, oral, or electronic agreements between the Registrant and the Registry relating to the domain name. Additional agreements, if any, may be entered into between the Registrant and Melbourne IT relating to domain name services provided by Melbourne IT, provided that no such additional agreement may waive, alter, or supersede any provision of this Registration Agreement, neither may such an additional agreement impose any obligation upon the Registry without the Registry’s express prior written consent. If there is any conflict between such additional agreements and this Registration Agreement, this Registration Agreement shall prevail.

18. Written Agreement. This Registration Agreement constitutes a written agreement between the Registrant and Melbourne IT for the benefit of the Registry even though the Registrant’s Application may be dispatched electronically, and even though the Registry may accept the Application electronically. A printed version of this Registration Agreement, and of any notice given in electronic form related to this Registration Agreement, shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings to the same extent, and subject to the same restrictions, as other business contracts, documents, or records originally generated and maintained in printed form.

19. Assignment. The parties agree that the Registry may assign, sub-assign, transfer, sell, license, or sub-license its rights and obligations under this Registration Agreement or any portion thereof to a third party without prior written notice to the Registrant.

20. Survival of Obligations. The parties agree that clauses 6 (Scope of Registration), 7 (Registrant Representations and Warranties), 8 (Breach and Cure), 9 (Disputes Between Registrants), 10 (Indemnity), 11 (DISCLAIMER AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY), 12 (Notices), 13 (Governing Law/Forum Selection), 14 (Ownership of Information and Data), and 15 (Severability) of these Registration Terms shall survive the expiry or termination of this Registration Agreement.

21. Headings: The headings of sections contained in this Registration Agreement are inserted solely for convenience and ease of reference only and shall not constitute any part of this agreement, or have any effect on its interpretation or construction Registry or Registrar in Registration Agreement compliance-related matters. There are no other third party beneficiaries of this Registration Agreement.

THIS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT IS AND THE REGISTRY POLICIES ARE EFFECTIVE AND BINDING AS OF THE TIME OF SUBMISSION, BY THE REGISTRANT, AN APPLICATION FOR A DOMAIN NAME OR AT THE TIME OF PAYMENT, WHICHEVER IS EARLIER.

    2. the character string has previously been rejected by the other Registrar.

8. Breach. Failure by you to abide by any provision of this Registration Agreement (including the Registry Policies) will be considered a material breach of the Registration Agreement that will entitle Melbourne IT without further notice to you to terminate the Registration Agreement and to delete or suspend all and any Domain Names registered by you.

Failure to provide such written assurances in a form satisfactory to the indemnified party is a material breach of this Registration Agreement.

10. Disclaimer and Limitation of Registry’s Liability. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT, TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE REGISTRY AND THE REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS, RELATING TO THE USE, SUSPENSION, TERMINATION OR THE INABILITY TO USE, THE DOMAIN NAME, REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING IN THE CASE OF NEGLIGENCE BY THE REGISTRY RELATED PARTIES), OR OTHERWISE.

13. No Waiver.

14. Priority of this Registration Agreement. You agree that this Registration Agreement shall take precedence over any agreement between you and Melbourne IT in respect of the Domain Name(s). Additional agreements, if any, may be entered into between you and Melbourne IT, but no such additional agreement may waive, alter, or supersede any provision of this Registration Agreement without the written agreement of the Registry. If there is any conflict between such additional agreements and this Registration Agreement, this Registration Agreement shall prevail.
