we, nor our contractors or third party beneficiaries shall be liable
for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages
resulting from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for

or liability resulting from access delays or access interruptions; (2)
loss or liability resulting from data non-delivery or data mis-delivery;

the possibility of such damages. In no event shall our maximum
liability exceed five hundred ($500.00) dollars.

INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold us,
our contractors, agents, employees,officers, directors, affiliates and
third party beneficiaires harmless from all liabilities, claims and
expenses, including attorney’s fees, of third parties relating to or
arising under this Agreement, the Services provided hereunder or your

pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy.
When we are threatened with suit by a third party, we may seek written
assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your
failure to provide those assurances shall be a breach of your
Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name.

The person named as administrative contact at the time the user name
and password are secured shall be the owner of the domain name. You
agree that prior to transferring ownership of your domain name to
another person (the Transferee”) you shall require the Transferee to
agree in writing to be bound by all the
terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your domain name will not be
transferred until we receive such written assurances or other
reasonable assurance that the Transferee has been bound by the
contractual terms of this Agreement (such reasonable assurance as
determined by us in our sole discretion). If the Transferee fails to
be bound in a reasonable fashion (as determine by us in our sole
discretion) to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, any such
transfer will be null and void.

BREACH.  You agree that failure to abide by any
provision of this Agreement, any operating rule or policy or the
Dispute Policy provided by us, may be considered by us to be a
material breach and that we may provide a written notice, describing
the breach, to you. If within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of
such notice, you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably
satisfactory to us, that you have not breached your obligations under
the Agreement, then we may delete the registration or reservation of
your domain name. Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be
excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or
any other breach by you.

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