of the domain name. You represent that you have provided notice of the terms

12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and
your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services(s) provided under this Agreement

such Service(s). Neither 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
the cost of procurement of substitute services. Because some jurisdictions do
not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental
damages, in such jurisdictions, 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;

liability exceed five hundred ($500.00) dollars.
13. 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 use of the Services, including without limitation infringement
by you, or someone else using the Service 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 shall be a breach of your Agreement
and may result in deactivation of your domain name.
14. TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. 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.
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.

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