The current version of the Dispute Policy may be found at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-policy-24oct99.htm. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this policy.

8. DOMAIN NAME DISPUTES. You agree that, if the registration or reservation of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy. You agree that in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. For any dispute, you agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of the Province of Ontario.

9. POLICY. You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to a BRS Media Inc., Registry, ICANN or government-adopted policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure not inconsistent with a BRS Media Inc., Registry, ICANN or government-adopted policy, (1) to correct mistakes by us or the Registry in registering the name or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.

10. AGENCY. Should you intend to license use of a domain name to a third party you shall nonetheless be the domain name holder of record and are therefore responsible for providing your 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 domain name. You shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the domain name. You represent that you have provided notice of the terms and conditions in this Agreement to any third party licensee and that the third party agrees to the terms hereof.

11. ANNOUNCEMENTS. We reserve the right to distribute information to you that is pertinent to the quality or operation of our services and those of our service partners. These announcements will be predominately informative in nature and may include notices describing changes, upgrades, new products or other information to add security or to enhance your identity on the Internet.

12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services(s) provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is solely limited to the amount you paid for such Service(s). We and our contractors shall not 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 the cost of procurement of substitute services. Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states, our liability is limited to the extent permitted by law. We disclaim any and all loss or liability resulting from, but not limited to: (1) loss or liability resulting from access delays or access interruptions; (2) loss or liability resulting from data non-delivery or data mis-delivery; (3) loss or liability resulting from acts of God; (4) loss or liability resulting from the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password; (5) loss or liability resulting from errors, omissions, or misstatements in any and all information or services(s) provided under this Agreement; (6) loss or liability resulting from the interruption of your Service.

13. INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold us, our contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors and affiliates and BRS Media Inc., and its directors, officers, employees, agents and affiliates 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 use of the Services, including without limitation infringement by you, or someone else using the Service with your computer, of any intellectual property or other proprietary right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any of our operating rules or policy relating to the service(s) provided. You also agree to release, indemnify and hold us harmless 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 may be considered by us to be a breach of your Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name. This indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

14. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. The person named as registrant on the WHOIS shall be the registered name holder. The person named as administrative contact at the time the controlling user name and password are secured shall be deemed the designate of the registrant with the authority to manage 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) along with the applicable transfer fee. 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.

15. 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.

16. NO GUARANTY. You acknowledge that registration or reservation of your chosen domain name does not confer immunity from objection to the registration, reservation or use of the domain name.

17. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTIES. You agree that your use of our Services is solely at your own risk. You agree that such Service(s) is provided on an "as is," "as available" basis.

We have no liability of any nature if an .eu domain name application (whether sunrise or otherwise) fails because it is defective.

We reserve the right not to submit an .eu domain name application to EURid without refund (except in our discretion) if:

  • It does not include the essential elements specified in Article 3 of EC Regulation 874/2004;
  • You fail within any time limit reasonably set by us (or 7 days if we do not set one) to comply with any request by us to confirm acceptance of specific EURid terms and conditions (including sunrise terms and conditions) or to provide any other information which we reasonably require;
  • you fail to pay the correct fee at the time of your application or we reasonably consider that the payment is fraudulent; or
  • we reasonably consider that registration and/or use of the domain name is likely to infringe any third party rights.
The following apply to sunrise .eu domain name applications:
  • If we receive more than one application for the same .eu domain name, we shall forward these to EURid in the chronological order in which they were received.
  • If we receive sunrise applications in advance of the relevant phase of the sunrise period, we will submit them to EURid at or as soon as reasonably practicable after the start of the relevant phase (subject to the other provisions in this agreement).
  • It is entirely your responsibility to ensure that any requests for supporting evidence sent to you by EURid are correctly submitted to EURid on time and in accordance with the applicable requirements. You acknowledge that if the contact email address which you supply to us for transmission to EURid is incorrect, it is likely that you will not receive such requests and that your application will fail.

The following apply to non-sunrise .eu domain name applications received by us in advance of general .eu domain name registration:

  • We will not accept more than one application for the same .eu domain name.
  • We will submit such applications to EURid at or as soon as reasonably practicable after the start of general registration (subject to the other provisions in this agreement).

Important information concerning .eu domain names will be posted on our website and it is your responsibility to check it regularly for updates. We have no obligations in relation to .eu domain names except insofar as expressly stated above.
Sunrise Period Application Fees are Non-Refundable.
