Alice's Registry, Inc.

Registration Agreement, Version 1.0.3

Last updated on March 16th, 2006  

Introduction :

Alice's Registry is operating under the authority of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). We also must comply with rules set out by the Domain Name Registry.

Registrants in the domains ending in .com, .org, .net, .biz, .info, .name, and .pro are required to agree to two separate documents, the ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and this Alice's Registry Registration Agreement (AR-RA), which is based in part on provisions of the ICANN Registration Accreditation Agreement, hereinafter referred to as "ICANN Agreement".

Please print out a copy of this Agreement for your files.

Registration Agreement :

This Registration Agreement ("Agreement") is between you (as an individual) or your company, association or other enterprise (hereinafter referred to as "Registrant") and Alice's Registry, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as "Alice's Registry"). The Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions to register an Internet domain name through Alice's Registry. To complete the registration process, Registrant must read and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement and the accompanying UDRP, and any rules or policies that are or may be published by Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") under the Agreement between Alice's Registry and ICANN ("ICANN Agreement"). Registrant acknowledges that Alice's Registry may modify this Agreement if necessary to comply with its ICANN Agreement.

1. Fees.

As consideration for the domain name registration services provided by Alice's Registry, Registrant shall pay all applicable initial registration fees and renewal fees. Registrant will be notified when renewal fees are due, and it shall be Registrant's responsibility to ensure that such fees are paid. Should these fees go unpaid by the time specified in the renewal notice, Registrant's registration will be canceled. Registrant agrees that Alice's Registry shall have no liability whatsoever with respect to any such cancellation.

If you fail to renew your domain name, you agree that Alice's Registry may, at its sole discretion, renew your expired domain name on your behalf. If Alice's Registry decides to renew your expired domain name on your behalf you will have a Renewal Grace Period during which you may reimburse Alice's Registry for the renewal and keep your domain name. The Renewal Grace Period is currently 10 days but subject to change under the term of this Agreement. If you do not reimburse Alice's Registry for the renewal during the Renewal Grace Period your domain name will be placed on Hold and flagged for deletion after which you will have a 30 day redemption period during which you may pay Alice's Registry a Redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The Redemption fee is currently $160 USD and is subject to change under the terms of this agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the 30 day redemption period Alice's Registry may, at its sole discretion, delete your domain name or transfer it to another registrant on your behalf.

If your domain is deleted, the Registry also provides a 30 day Redemption Grace Period during which you may pay Alice's Registry a redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The redemption fee is currently $160 USD and is subject to change under the terms of this agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the Registry?s Redemption Grace Period the Registry will release your name and it will become available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis.

All fees are non-refundable. Registrant will be notified when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid by the time specified in the renewal notice, Alice's Registry shall have the right to cancel the registration and delete Registrant's domain name. Unless otherwise agreed, payment shall be made by credit card and Registrant's domain name will not be registered unless we receive appropriate authorization from Registrant's credit card company. Registrant agrees that Alice's Registry shall have the exclusive right to act as registrar of Registrant's domain name for the initial term of registration plus one (1) year of renewal (but only if Registrant renews the registration of the domain name), and only if the renewal fee charged by Alice's Registry for the renewal term does not exceed the annual registration fee for the initial registration, exclusive of promotional discounts, plus any increase in fees charged by the registry, ICANN or any other regulatory body.

In the event of a charge back by a credit card company (or similar action by another payment provider allowed by us) in connection with the payments of the registration or renewal fee for Registrant's domain name registration, Registrant agrees and acknowledge that the domain name registration shall be transferred to Alice's Registry as the paying entity for that registration to the registry and that we reserve all rights regarding such domain name including, without limitation, the right to make the domain name available to other parties for purchase. We will reinstate Registrant's domain name registration solely at our discretion, and subject to our receipt of the initial registration or renewal fee and our then-current reinstatement fee, currently set at US$200.

2. Dispute Policy (UDRP).

Registrant agrees to be bound by the current ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP") which is incorporated into this Agreement by reference. The UDRP can be found at http://www.alices-registry.com/urdp.jspa . Any disputes regarding the right to use Registrant's domain name will be subject to the UDRP. ICANN may modify the UDRP in its sole discretion at any time. Registrant's continued use of Registrant's domain name after modification to the UDRP constitutes Registrant's acceptance of those modifications. If Registrant does not agree to such a modification, Registrant may request that Registrant's domain name be deleted.

Registrant agrees that it will be subject to the provisions specified in the UDRP in effect at the time Registrant's domain name is challenged by a third party. Registrant also agrees that in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, Registrant will indemnify and hold Alice's Registry harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the UDRP.

REGISTRANT ALSO AGREES THAT ALICE'S REGISTRY, INC. AND ANY APPLICABLE REGISTRY OPERATOR, INCLUDING AFILIAS LIMITED, NEULEVEL INC., WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY OF ANY KIND FOR ANY LOSS OR LIABILITY RESULTING FROM THE PROCEEDINGS AND PROCESSES RELATING TO THE SUNRISE PERIOD, LAND RUSH PERIOD, AND/OR THE DOMAIN NAME APPLICATION PHASE, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION: (A) REGISTRANT'S ABILITY OR INABILITY TO OBTAIN AND/OR REGISTER A DOMAIN NAME DURING THESE PERIODS, AND (B) THE RESULTS OF ANY DISPUTE OVER SUNRISE REGISTRATION AND/OR DOMAIN NAME APPLICATIONS.

3. Use of Registrant's Information.

As part of the registration process, Registrant (you or your company) is required to provide certain information and to update this information to keep it current, complete and accurate. This information includes (i) Registrant's full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available; (ii) the name of an authorized person for contact purposes in the case of a registrant that is an organization, association, or corporation; (iii) the IP addresses of the primary nameserver and any secondary nameservers for the domain name; (iv) the corresponding names of those nameservers; (v) the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available of the technical contact for the domain name; (vi) the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available of the administrative contact for the domain name; (vii) the name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available of the zone contact for the domain name. (See ICANN Agreement, Section II,7,a).

Registrant acknowledges that willfully providing inaccurate information or willfully failing to update information promptly will constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be a basis for cancellation of Registrant's domain name if Registrant does not respond within 15 days (See ICANN Agreement, Section II,7,a, paragraph 2).

If Registrant licenses use of a domain name to a third party, Registrant is nonetheless the holder of record of the domain name and is responsible for providing Registrant's own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical, administrative, and zone contact information. (See ICANN Agreement, Section II,7,a, paragraph 3.)

Registrant acknowledges that Alice's Registry will make some of the information that the Registrant provides during the registration process publicly available as required by ICANN. Additionally, Registrant acknowledges that ICANN may impose guidelines, limits and/or requirements that relate to the amount and type of information that Alice's Registry may or must make available to the public or to private entities. Alice's Registry will not otherwise disclose Registrant's information to any third party unless it is required to maintain Registrant's domain name. Registrant may request a copy of Registrant's information in Alice's Registry's possession to review, modify or update such information. (For details, see ICANN Agreement Section II,.J.7.a & b. Alice's Registry only requires those data elements specified in a, and disclosed only those elements as required by this section).

Registrant represents that, to the best of Registrant's knowledge and belief, neither the registration of Registrant's domain nor the manner in which the domain is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal rights of a third party (See ICANN Agreement, Section II,7,g).

Alice's Registry will take reasonable precautions to protect the information it obtains from the Registrant from our loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure or use, or alteration or destruction, of that information. Alice's Registry shall have no liability to Registrant or any third party to the extent such reasonable precautions are taken.

4. Use Policies.

In the event that unsolicited commercial advertisements ("spamming") is illegal or against ICANN rules, Alice's Registry may be required to suspend or cancel the domain name. Similarly, if Registrant uses Registrant's domain name in connection with unlawful activity, Alice's Registry may be required to suspend or cancel the domain name.

Registrant agrees to use the domain name only in accordance with applicable laws.

Alice's Registry, Inc. reserves the right to suspend or cancel your domain name in the event that Registrant uses the domain name to send unsolicited commercial advertisements in contradiction to either applicable laws or customary acceptable usage policies of the Internet, or if the domain name is used in connection with unlawful activity.

5. Agents and Licenses.

Registrant agrees that, if Registrant's domain name is registered on Registrant's behalf by anyone acting as Registrant's agent (e.g., an Internet Service Provider, advertising agency, employee, etc.), Registrant is nonetheless bound as a principal by all terms and conditions provided herein, including the UDRP.

Registrant agrees that if Registrant licenses the use of Registrant's domain name to a third party, Registrant remains the domain name holder, and remains responsible for all obligations under this Agreement. (See ICANN Agreement, Section II.J.7.a paragraph 3: "Any SLD holder that intends to license use of a domain name to a third party is nonetheless the SLD holder of record and is responsible for providing its own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the SLD. An SLD holder licensing use of an SLD according to this provision shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the SLD, unless it promptly discloses the identity of the licensee to a party providing the SLD holder reasonable evidence of actionable harm.")

6. Limitation of Liability.

REGISTRANT AGREES THAT ALICE'S REGISTRY WILL NOT BE LIABLE TO REGISTRANT OR ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY LOSS THAT MAY OCCUR DUE TO (a) ANY LOSS OF REGISTRATION OF A DOMAIN NAME, (b) THE USE OF REGISTRANT'S DOMAIN NAME, (c) ACCESS DELAYS OR ACCESS INTERRUPTIONS TO ALICE'S REGISTRY'S REGISTRATION SYSTEM; (d) THE NON-DELIVERY OR MISDELIVERY OF DATA BETWEEN REGISTRANT AND ALICE'S REGISTRY ; (e) EVENTS BEYOND ALICE'S REGISTRY'S REASONABLE CONTROL; (f) THE PROCESSING OF THIS APPLICATION; (g) THE PROCESSING OF ANY MODIFICATION TO THE RECORD ASSOCIATED WITH REGISTRANT'S DOMAIN NAME, (h) THE FAILURE OF REGISTRANT OR REGISTRANT'S AGENT TO PAY ANY FEES HEREUNDER; OR (i) THE APPLICATION OF THE UDRP. FURTHER, ALICE'S REGISTRY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS) REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION WHETHER IN CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, EVEN IF ALICE'S REGISTRY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL ALICE'S REGISTRY'S MAXIMUM LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY REGISTRANT TO ALICE'S REGISTRY FOR REGISTRATION OF REGISTRANT'S DOMAIN NAME DURING THE PRIOR 3 YEARS UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT. BECAUSE SOME STATES (AND COUNTRIES) DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES (OR COUNTRIES), OUR LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

7. Indemnity.

Registrant agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Alice's Registry and any applicable domain name registry, including Network Solutions, Inc., VeriSign, Inc., NewLevel, Inc., Afilias LLP and the directors, officers, employees and agents of each of them, for any loss, damages or costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any third party claim, action, or demand related to Registrant's domain name or the use thereof. This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification required under the UDRP.

Registrant agrees to release, indemnify, and hold Alice's Registry and its directors, officers, employees, contractors, agents, and affiliates harmless from all liabilities, claims, and expenses, including attorney's fees and expenses, of third parties relating to or arising under this Agreement, Registrant domain name or its use, the Alice's Registry services provided hereunder, or Registrant's use of any Alice's Registry's services, including without limitation infringement by Registrant, or someone else using the Alice's Registry E-mail Service with Registrant's computer, of any intellectual property or other proprietary right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any Alice's Registry operating rule or policy relating to the services provided. Registrant also agrees to release, indemnify, and hold the Registry, it's directors, officers, employees, contractors, agents, and affiliates harmless from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including reasonable attorney's fees and expenses, of third parties relating to or arising out of or related to Registrant's domain name or its use. Registrant also agrees to release, indemnify and hold Alice's Registry harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. When Alice's Registry is threatened with suit by a third party, Alice's Registry may seek written assurances from Registrant concerning Registrant's promise to indemnify Alice's Registry; Registrant's failure to provide those assurances may be considered by Alice's Registry to be a breach of the Agreement and may result in deactivation of the domain name.

Registrant further agrees that this indemnification obligation shall survive the termination or expiration of this Registration Agreement.

8. Representations and Warranties.

Registrant represents and warrants that all information provided by Registrant in connection with Registrant's registration is complete and accurate. Alice's Registry makes no representation or warranties of any kind in connection with this Agreement. Alice's Registry does not represent or warrant that registration of Registrant's domain name will immunize Registrant from challenges to Registrant's domain name.

9. Breach and Revocation.

Any breach by Registrant of this Agreement or the UDRP must be remedied by Registrant within 30 days of notice by Alice's Registry . If Registrant fails to cure the breach, Alice's Registry may revoke Registrant's registration of the domain name.

Nothing contained in this Policy shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties. The failure of Alice's Registry to require Registrant's performance of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by Alice's Registry of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole. Alice's Registry will amend or replace such provision with one that is valid and enforceable and which achieves, to the extent possible, the original objectives and intent of Alice's Registry as reflected in the original provision. No provision of this Agreement, including the Alice's Registry fee schedule and the UDRP, may not be amended or modified by Registrant except by means of a written document signed by Alice's Registry.

DOMAIN NAME DISPUTE POLICY
If you reserved or registered a .name domain name through us, you agree to be bound by our current domain name dispute policy that is incorporated herein and made a part of this Agreement by reference. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with that policy. In addition, you hereby acknowledge that you have read and understood and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the following documents, as they may be amended from time to time, which are hereby incorporated and made an integral part of this Agreement:

(a) the Eligibility Requirements (the "Eligibility Requirements"), available at http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/name/registry-agmt-appl-03jul01.htm;

(b) the Eligibility Requirements Dispute Resolution Policy (the "ERDRP"), available at http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/name/registry-agmt-appm-03jul01.htm; and

(c) the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "UDRP"), available at http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/name/registry-agmt-appm-03jul01.htm. The Eligibility Requirements dictate that Personal Name domain names and Personal Name SLD email addresses will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis, except for registrations granted as a result of a dispute resolution proceeding or during the landrush procedures in connection with the opening of the Registry TLD. The following categories of Personal Name Registrations may be registered: (i) the Personal Name of an individual; (ii) the Personal Name of a fictional character, if you have trademark or service mark rights in that character's Personal Name; (iii) in addition to a Personal Name registration, you may add numeric characters to the beginning or the end of your Personal Name so as to differentiate it from other Personal Names. The ERDRP applies to challenges to (i) registered domain names and SLD email address registrations within .name on the grounds that a Registrant does not meet the Eligibility Requirements, and (ii) to Defensive Registrations within .name.

The UDRP sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between a Registrant and party other than Global Name Registry ("Registry Operator") or Registrar over the registration and use of an Internet domain name registered by a Registrant.

REGISTRAR-REGISTRANT TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR DEFENSIVE REGISTRATIONS

DEFENSIVE REGISTRATIONS
Defensive Registrations allow owners of nationally registered marks to exclusively pre-register on the .name space and create a protective barrier for their trademarks. A "Defensive Registration" is a registration granted to a third party of a specific string on the second or third level, or of a specific set of strings on the second and third levels, which will not resolve within the domain name system but may prevent the registration of the same string(s) on the same level(s) by other third party applicants.

PHASES OF DEFENSIVE REGISTRATIONS

You understand that trademark or service mark registrations from the supplemental or equivalent Registry of any country, or from individual states or provinces of a nation, will not be accepted. Subject to the same character and formatting restrictions as apply to all registrations in the Registry TLD, if a trademark or service mark registration incorporates design elements, the ASCII character portion of that mark may qualify to be a Phase I Defensive Registration.

(b) Phase II Defensive Registrants may apply for a Defensive Registration for any string or combination of strings.
