This Registration Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions of your use of DYNTEX Group, Inc.'s ("DYNTEX") domain name registration services to register an Internet domain name, as well as your registration of that domain name. To complete the registration process, you must acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the accompanying dispute policy and any rules or policies that are or may be published by DYNTEX from time to time. This Agreement will become effective when accepted by DYNTEX. DYNTEX may elect to accept or reject your domain name registration application for any reason at its sole discretion, such rejection including, but not limited to, rejection due to a request for registration of a prohibited domain name.
DYNTEX is an registrar for the .com, .net and .org Top Level Domains (TLDs). ICANN oversees the .com, .net and .org TLDs. As an domain name registrar, DYNTEX is, upon accepting your domain name registration application, your sponsor for that application. All domain name registrations we register for .com, .net and .org are not effective until we have delivered the domain name registration information you provide us to the registry administrator for the .com, .net or .org TLDs, as applicable, and the registry administrator puts into effect your domain name registration. Currently, the registry administrator for the .com, .net and .org TLDs is Network Solutions, Inc.
You agree and acknowledge that DYNTEX is not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the registry administrator arising out of or related to your application and receipt of, or failure to receive, a domain name registration.
You further agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless the registry administrator and its directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of, or related to, your domain name registration.
As consideration for the domain name registration services provided by DYNTEX to you, you agree to pay DYNTEX, prior to the effectiveness of the desired domain name registration, the then-current amounts set forth in the DYNTEX price schedule for the initial registration of the domain name and, should you choose to renew the registration, subsequent renewals of the registration. All fees are nonrefundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain name registration is suspended, canceled or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term. DYNTEX reserves the right to amend, increase, or decrease fees, surcharges, renewal fees or to institute new fees at any time, for any reason, at its sole discretion.
Your requested domain name will not be registered unless we receive actual payment of the registration fee, or reasonable assurance of payment of the registration fee from some other entity (such reasonable assurance as determined by DYNTEX in its sole discretion).
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 fee for your domain name registration, you agree and acknowledge that the domain name registration shall be transferred to DYNTEX 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 your 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.
You will be notified when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid within the time specified in a second notice or reminder regarding renewal, your registration will be canceled. Payment must be made by credit card or such other method as we may indicate in the registration application or renewal form. We will renew your name for you provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date, unless you instruct us otherwise within the time specified. If your billing information is not accurate and you wish to renew your domain name registration, we will contact you to update this information and charge you an administrative fee for services.
3. Transfer of Ownership
The entity named as the registrant contact at the time the controlling user name and password are secured shall be the account holder of the domain name. You agree that prior to the effectiveness of any transfer of ownership of your domain name to another entity, you will pay DYNTEX the then-current fee set forth by DYNTEX for the transfer of ownership of a domain name. You further agree that as a condition of any such transfer of ownership of your domain name, the entity to which you seek to transfer your domain name (the "Transferee") shall agree in writing to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your domain name will not be transferred until we receive such written assurances, and actual payment of the transfer fee, or reasonable assurance of payment of the transfer fee from some other entity (such reasonable assurance as determined by DYNTEX in its sole discretion). You acknowledge and agree that if you attempt to transfer your domain name registration without paying DYNTEX the then-current transfer fee set by DYNTEX for the transfer of ownership of a domain name, or if the entity to which you seek to transfer your domain name fails to agree in writing to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void, and will result in your domain name registration being revoked without a refund of any charges you have incurred in attempting to register or transfer that domain name. DYNTEX does not charge a transfer fee now, nor does it expect to in the future.
4. Dispute Policy
You agree to be
bound by the DYNTEX Domain Name Dispute Policy (attached hereto as "Dispute
Policy"), which is hereby incorporated and made a part of this
Agreement by reference. The Dispute Policy can be found at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-schedule.htm.
5. Changes to Registration Agreement and Dispute Policy
You acknowledge that the domain name system and the practice of registering and administering domain names are evolving, and therefore you agree that DYNTEX may modify this Agreement and the Dispute Policy if necessary to comply with its ICANN agreement, and any other Agreements that DYNTEX is currently bound by or will be bound by in the future, as well as to adjust to changing business circumstances. Your continued use of the domain name registered to you shall constitute your acceptance of this Agreement and the Dispute Policy with the new modifications. If you do not agree to any of such changes, you may request that your domain name registration be canceled or transferred to a different domain name registrar. You agree that such cancellation or request for transfer will be your exclusive remedy if you do not wish to abide by any changes to this Agreement or the Dispute Policy.
6. Domain Name Registration Information and Its Use
a. Information You Are Required to Submit. As part of the registration process, you are required to provide certain information and to update promptly this information as requested by DYNTEX to keep it current, complete and accurate.

All other information which we may request from you at registration is voluntary. However, not providing this information may prevent you from obtaining all products and services made available to domain name registrants by us, other than registration of the domain name.
b. Additional Information Maintained About Your Registration. In addition to the information you provide, we maintain records relating to your domain name registration. These records may include:
i. The original creation date of the registration;

c. Obligations Relating to Provided Data. In the event that, in registering the domain name, you are providing information about a third party, you hereby represent that you have (a) provided notice to that third party of the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Agreement, and (b) that you have obtained that third party's express consent to the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Agreement.
You acknowledge that willfully providing inaccurate information or willfully failing to update information promptly will constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for cancellation of your domain name registration. You further agree that your failure to respond within fifteen (15) calendar days to inquiries by DYNTEX concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with your registration shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for cancellation of your domain name registration.
d. Disclosure and Use of Registration Information. You agree and acknowledge that DYNTEX will make available domain name registration information you provide or that we otherwise maintain to ICANN, to the registry administrator(s), and to other third parties as ICANN and applicable laws may require or permit. You further agree and acknowledge that DYNTEX may make publicly available, or directly available to third party vendors, some, or all, of the domain name registration information you provide, for purposes of inspection (such as through our WHOIS service) or for targeted marketing and other purposes as required or permitted by ICANN and applicable laws.
Additionally, you acknowledge that ICANN may establish guidelines, limits and/or requirements that relate to the amount and type of information that DYNTEX may or must make available to the public or to private entities, and the manner in which such information is made available.
You hereby consent to any and all such disclosures and use of, and guidelines, limits and restrictions on disclosure or use of, information provided by you in connection with the registration of a domain name (including any updates to such information), whether during or after the term of your registration of the domain name. (You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of your domain name registration information by DYNTEX.)
You may access your domain name registration information in DYNTEX's possession to review, modify or update such information, by accessing our domain manager service, or similar service, made available at our Web site (http://www.DYNTEX.com).
We will not process data about any identified or identifiable natural person that we obtain from you in a way incompatible with the purposes and other limitations which we describe in this Agreement.
DYNTEX will take reasonable precautions to protect the information it obtains from you from our loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction of that information.
7. Ownership of Data
You agree and acknowledge that DYNTEX owns all database, compilation, collective and similar rights, title and interests worldwide in our domain name database, and all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database. You further agree and acknowledge that we own the following information for those registrations for which we are the registrar: (a) the original creation date of the registration, (b) the expiration date of the registration, (c) the name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available fax number of the technical contact, administrative contact, zone contact and billing contact for the domain name registration, (d) any remarks concerning the registered domain name that appear or should appear in the WHOIS or similar database, and (e) any other information we generate or obtain in connection with the provision of domain name registration services, other than the domain name being registered, the IP addresses of the primary nameserver and any secondary nameservers for the domain name, and the corresponding names of those nameservers. DYNTEX does not have any ownership interest in your specific personal registration information outside of its rights in DYNTEXs domain name database, or other rights specifically set out elsewhere herein.
8. Agents and Licenses
You agree that, if you are registering a domain name for someone else, you represent that you have the authority to bind that person as a principal to all terms and conditions provided herein, including the Dispute Policy.
You agree that if you license the use of the domain name registered to you to a third party, you nonetheless remain the domain name holder of record, and remain responsible for all obligations under this Agreement, including but not limited to payment obligations, and providing (and updating, as necessary) both your own full contact information, and accurate technical, administrative, billing and zone contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name and domain name registration.
9. Limitation of Liability
YOU AGREE THAT DYNTEX WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY (a) SUSPENSION OR LOSS OF THE DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION IN YOUR NAME, (b) USE OF YOUR DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION, (c) INTERRUPTION OF BUSINESS, (d) ACCESS DELAYS OR ACCESS INTERRUPTIONS TO THIS SITE OR THE WEB SITE(S) YOU ACCESS BY THE DOMAIN NAME REGISTERED IN YOUR NAME; (e) DATA NON-DELIVERY, MIS-DELIVERY, CORRUPTION, DESTRUCTION OR OTHER MODIFICATION; (f) EVENTS BEYOND DYNTEX'S REASONABLE CONTROL; (g) THE PROCESSING OF THIS APPLICATION; OR (h) APPLICATION OF THE DISPUTE POLICY. YOU FURTHER AGREE THAT DYNTEX ALSO 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 DYNTEX HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL DYNTEX'S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR REGISTRATION OF THE DOMAIN NAME, IN THE SUM OF FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500.00). IN THE EVENT THAT SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, THEN IN SUCH STATES, OUR LIABILITY IS LIMITED TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.
10. Indemnification of DYNTEX
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless DYNTEX for any loss, damages or costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees, resulting from any third party claim, action, or demand related to the registration or use of the domain name registered in your name. This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification required under the Dispute Policy.
11. Representations and Warranties
You represent that, to the best of your knowledge and belief, neither the registration of the domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal rights of a third party. You further represent and warrant that all information provided by you in connection with your domain name registration is accurate.
ALL DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS." Except for our statement regarding our accreditation as an ICANN-approved domain name registrar in the introductory paragraph of this Agreement, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR ITS DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION SERVICES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, UNLESS SUCH REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES ARE NOT LEGALLY EXCLUDABLE. WITHOUT ANY LIMITATION TO THE FOREGOING, DYNTEX MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER THAT REGISTRATION OR USE OF A DOMAIN NAME UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL IMMUNIZE YOU EITHER FROM CHALLENGES TO YOUR DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION, OR FROM SUSPENSION, CANCELLATION OR TRANSFER OF THE DOMAIN NAME REGISTERED TO YOU.
12. Breach and Revocation
DYNTEX reserves the right to suspend, cancel, transfer or modify your domain name registration in the event (a) you materially breach this Agreement (including the Dispute Policy) and do not cure such breach within thirty (30) days of notice by DYNTEX, (b) you use the domain name registered to you to send unsolicited commercial advertisements in contradiction to either applicable laws or customary acceptable usage policies of the Internet, (c) you use your domain name in connection with unlawful activity, or (d) grounds arise for such suspension, cancellation, transfer or other modification as provided for in this Agreement.
You further acknowledge and agree that your registration of a domain name is (a) subject to suspension, cancellation or transfer by any ICANN procedure, by any registrar (including DYNTEX) or registry administrator procedures approved by an ICANN-adopted policy, or by any other ccTLD registry administrator procedures as the case may be, (b) to correct errors by DYNTEX, another registrar or the registry administrator in administering the name or (c) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.
You also agree that DYNTEX shall have the right in its sole discretion to suspend, cancel, transfer or otherwise modify a domain name registration upon seven (7) calendar days prior written notice, or at such time as DYNTEX receives a properly authenticated order from a court of competent jurisdiction, or arbitration award, requiring the suspension, cancellation transfer or modification of the domain name registration.
13. Adjudication of Disputes
In the event of adjudication of disputes concerning or arising from use of your Domain Name, you shall submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts (1) of your domicile, and (2) of the location of DYNTEX.
You agree that any notices required to be given under this Agreement by DYNTEX to you will be deemed to have been given if delivered in accordance with the contact information you have provided.
This Agreement and the Dispute Policy, together with all modifications, constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and DYNTEX, and supersede and govern all prior proposals, agreements, or other communications.
Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties. The failure of DYNTEX to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by DYNTEX of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself or of this agreement as a whole. 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. DYNTEX 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 DYNTEX as reflected in the original provision. This Agreement may not be amended or modified by you except by means of a written document signed by both you and an authorized representative of DYNTEX.
