    4. Fair use policy

      Hosting services (hosting web packages) found in the section "Web hosting" of the company site are shared web hosting services, ie each server used for these services resources are shared between websites hosted in it. Users of these hosting services provided by the company share disk space, bandwidth, processing power (CPU) and the available memory (RAM) of the server. Shared hosting services provided by the company are for hosting personal or corporate sites, which use of resources does not exceed those of a typical site.

      Shared hosting services cannot be used for hosting websites with very high traffic (portals, blogs, fora, news sites, etc.), websites containing web applications with high resource requirements or a large number of multimedia files (image, sound, video) or websites of large companies or organizations. Shared hosting services cannot be used for file sharing, media (video/audio) streaming, multimedia files bigger than 10MB, multimedia files from web cameras or security cameras, game servers, autonomous processes, installation of banner exchange applications, execution of spiders and daemons or bit torrent applications, track or client.

If the client wishes to become a reseller of hosting services provided by the company, the client may use any of the services in “Reseller” section of the website of the company.

      For a smooth provision of all services, concerning the resources which are unmetered (storage space, bandwidth, websites, email accounts, ftp accounts and other) it has to be stated that none of the websites hosted on any of the shared hosting packages can use more than 10% of the server's resources or 25% in the Semi Dedicated packages.

      The client may create backups of the files or applications hosted on the server according to the section "Backup policy"

      In Shared Hosting packages the maximum database size is 500MB, while each base can contain up to 500 tables and each table cannot contain more than 500.000 records. If a website exceeds the above limits, the company reserves the right to suggest the transfer of the client\'s website to a Semi Dedicated package if one of the packages in this series can meet the technical requirements of the application. If the client does not respond positively to the company's information, the company reserves the right to suspend the account until the issue is settled under the responsibility of the client, who is obliged to contact the company for further consultation.

      If any website violates the previous terms or causes problems to the proper operation of the server or on the websites of other clients, the company may limit the resources of the hosting package to within limits that ensure that the server runs smoothly or temporarily discontinue its operation if this objective cannot be technically achieved. The company then informs the client of the actions it has taken and the client under their own responsibility is asked to choose the optimal solution to solve the technical problems. The company is not required to solve the technical problems of client applications, but can offer solutions if the client wishes it with or without charge, depending on the problem, company's readiness and the ability to deal with it, as the support for client's application problems is not included in the formal obligations of the company.

      If a client reports technical issues with the hosting server, then the company, in any case, investigates the problem and if it is proven to be related to the server, it deals with solving the technical problems without charging the client. However, if it is technically proven that the problems reported by the client are not related to the server but exclusively to the client's application, the company is entitled to ask the client to cover these working hours financially, whether they concern the solution of the problem or in the first phase of the request investigation.

    5. Pre - Installed Applications – Scripts

      In some hosting packages, IP.GR offers the ability to automatically install a number of Open Source programs/applications. The client, on their own responsibility, may automatically install the desired programs. IP.GR does not offer any guarantee about the proper installation and operation of these programs or technical support for the installation and operation of these applications. For technical support, the client should refer to the application's designer or creator (when provided).

      The applications are Open Source and their source code is widely known, thus, any gaps in security may be easily spotted by a third-party person and used in a malevolent way. IP.GR does not carry any responsibility in case of a malfunction in the client's website, caused by the use of the applications mentioned above.

      When a new version is available, the client is informed by email and should adjust the application used in the newest version, in a reasonable time.

    6. Website transfer from another provider

      The company may transfer the client's site from another provider, under specific conditions. For websites with the same control panel (cPanel), the company may transfer the client's website for free. The client can upload a full cPanel backup of the website to the hosting package and the company undertakes the process of the backup installation for the client. The company's assessment is that work at this level will not exceed one hour of technical work, so within this time, the service is given free of charge to 12-month and 24-month hosting subscriptions. In the rare case that the client feels that there are special settings in their cPanel or special requirements for setting up their application, has the ability to inform the company to make a more specific time assessment of the transfer and may in such special and rare cases the free shipping time available to the company is inadequate, so an additional charge may arise in consultation with the client.

      If the client's web account uses a different control panel rather than cPanel and contains a single site, the company may also transfer the website for free for hosting packages with duration of 12 or 24 months, as long as the process does not require more than an hour of technical work. In case there is a need for more hours of technical work, the company informs the client. The company does not guarantee the successful completion of the transfer from another provider as it may be impossible or problematic because of undefined factors.

      In all other cases, the company may undertake the transfer process, upon consultation with the client service personnel of the company, and with all relative charges based on current prices ​​for technical work per hour and the hours required for the process to be completed.

      Upon completion of the website transfer, the company informs the client, who is asked to check the functionality of their application on the company's server. If a malfunction is observed, the client under their own responsibility informs the company within a reasonable time to overcome the problem. If the client does not respond positively to the company's information, the company considers the outcome of the transaction positive and closes the client's need for support.

    7. Email

      The client agrees to have the intention of reasonably using the email and that the average email transaction through the server is within the limits of the normal transaction of an average Internet user. The number of emails that can be sent per hosting subscription amounts to 100 emails per hour. In the Semi Dedicated series, the limit of sent emails may be increased, which, if any, will be described on the Semi Dedicated service page. IP.gr does not offer mailing list services for bulk email sending, whether it is legal or not. For cases where the client wants to send bulk mail, he can use another SMTP server that specializes in sending bulk emails or even use the internet service provider mail server.

      The suggested mailbox size for mail accounts is 512 MB and the maximum allowed is 1024 ΜΒ (1 GB). Mailboxes bigger than 1 GB can be hosted in hosting plans of the Semi Dedicated series. The company reserves the right to limit the volume of the email accounts in order to maintain the quality of email services or to make the necessary arrangements for the proper operation of the server and the protection of other users, as well as suggesting that the client upgrade a hosting package in the Semi Dedicated series when a mail account of more than 1 GB is detected.

      The following are strictly prohibited and can be a reason for immediate termination of the client's account:

      1. Sending emails, massively or not, in receivers who have not authorized the receiving of the messages (spamming).
      2. Subscribing a recipient to a mailing list without approval.
      3. Advertising services or products provided in websites hosted in IP.GR's servers through spamming in any direct or indirect way, even if the sending of these messages was outside the IP.GR servers.

      Servers do not operate as a storage place for the client electronic mail, but as a temporary storage medium until the client connects to the server and downloads the emails on their computer (common usage on standard POP3 connections) or manually delete emails that are no longer relevant (routine use on standard IMAP connections).

      IP.GR's policy concerning spamming has zero tolerance. In the first proved case of complaining about spamming, the account that caused the sending of the messages will be immediately suspended, until the incidence is investigated and the client will have to give a reasonable explanation. In case of no satisfactory explanations within 24 hours, the account will be removed without any further notice.

    8. Backup Policy

      IP.GR regularly take backups of its clients' applications and webpages on its own infrastructure with a regular frequency of 1-3 times a week, in order to be able to restore them in case of hardware failure or malicious action against the server. The company does not make a commitment to the disposal of its own bakcups if they are requested by the customer and retains the right to charge for the satisfaction of such a request. Available is always the most recent copy. Backup data volume is not counted in the data volume of the hosting package.

      Standard Line

      Regarding the shared hosting packages (SSD Value, SSD Power and SSD Premium) of the basic hosting serie (Standard Line) that include unmetered disk space, automated backups are received by the company only for accounts that do not exceed 5 GB of data volume. If the data volume of the hosting package exceeds 5 GB, then this is excluded from automated backups without the company being required to provide specific customer information.

      Business Line

      For the shared hosting packages (NVMe Value, NVMe Power and NVMe Premium) of the business hosting serie (Business Line) that include unmetered disk space, automated backups are received by the company only for accounts that do not exceed 10 GB of data volume. If the data volume of the hosting package exceeds 10 GB, then this is excluded from automated backups without the company being required to provide specific customer information.

      Semi Dedicated Line

      For the shared hosting packages (SD Value, SD Power and SD Premium) of the semi dedicated hosting serie (Semi Dedicated Line) that include a specific disk space, automated backups are received by the company without any limitations and always within predicted space for each hosting account. For accounts that have exceeded the intended use space, backup restoratino is not considered to be guaranteed and it is the customer's responsibility to control the use of the hosting package purchased by the company so that it does not exceed it's limits.

      In order for the backup to be successfully taken from, the files and folders of the hosting account must have appropriate permissions to be readable by the server. If the client or client applications modify the rights of the files and folders in a way that makes it impossible to obtain the correct backup, the company assumes no responsibility for this and the customer should ensure that the files and folders of the hosting package have appropriate permissions to be readable by the server.

      The customer can take a backup but is responsible for downloading that copy on its own storage media (locally) and removing it from the hosting server. In the event that a customer account due to changes or modifications decreases in volume and meets the criteria for inclusion in the company's backup program, the client must inform the company so that it can make the necessary arrangements to remove exclusion from automated backups. For hosting packages whose volume exceeds 5 GB of data volume, the company may suggest the customer to be transfered to Semi Dedicated packages, since there is no 5 GB limitation policy in these packages for automated backups. Backup within the hosting server is allowed for operational purposes, but the customer is obliged to remove backups from the server within 24 hours. Otherwise the company reserves the right to delete them without prior notice to the customer. Backups are considered all copies of the customers's account that can be downloaded within a hosting package, whether they come from the cPanel itself, or they are taken by third-party applications, such as Installatron or custom applications (custom scripts for backup or add-ons for downloading backups). The company can delete customer's backups after 24 hours have passed since the taking of the backup even if the hosting subscription does not exceed 5 GB. This action is included in the company's actions for the most beneficial utilization of server resources.

    9. Activation - Renewal

      The activation of the client's account can be done after paying the fee for the hosting subscription. The renewal of the client's account will be done automatically, after the subscription's expiration and for the same time period as the initial subscription, provided that the fee for the renewal will have been paid until the subscription's expiration date.

      IP.GR has the obligation to remind the client that the subscription will expire via email, at least 10 days earlier and inform the client about the alternative payment methods for the client's subscription fees.

      If the renewal fee is not paid on time, the next day the account will be active for 7 days. If during this period the fee is not deposited or there is no communication from the client's side, so as the matter to be settled, the account will be suspended for 7 more days and then will be permanently removed from the server.

      If the client wishes to renew his hosting subscription and the initial activation of the hosting account was made by credit card payment, the client should be aware that the company does not store credit card data, so he should make a new order for the renewal of the service and recharge his credit card, according to the instructions given to him. IP.GR does not automatically renew credit card subscriptions by credit card. Any payment to IP.GR is via a credit card, it is a one time charge.

    10. Breach of contract

      This agreement may be terminated at the initiative of the company if the agreed terms of service are not met by the client or on the initiative of the client if he does not wish to continue to cooperate with the company justified or not. IP.GR is not obliged to refund the agreed and paid by the client amount for the period remaining from the day of the interruption until the normal termination of the contract, except for the special case where the interruption is at the initiative of the client and the service provided is covered by a money-back guarantee at specific downtime. In the event of a violation of the terms of use by the client, IP.GR reserves the right to refuse, terminate or suspend its services at will and will not be responsible for any damages, whether positive or negative, that may arise of terminating a hosting account.

    11. Guarantee - Money Back Guarantee

      The hosting account packages IP.GR offers are accompanied by guarantee so that the money will be returned within 30 days from the account starting date. If the client is not satisfied by the level of IP.GR's services has the ability within 30 days from the contract outset to ask for the cancellation of this agreement. In this case, the client will be refunded the total hosting fee.

      In case the subscription fee contained also additional expenses (domain name registration, commissions of third or banks or credit cards, installation expenses, additional services) the subscription fee is returned to the client after the expenses mentioned before are withheld. After 30th day, no money can be refunded. This money back guarantee concerns only web hosting packages and not all services provided by IP.GR.

    12. Terms of Free Hosting Service

      The company provides the free web hosting subscription to every client that has already register or will register a domain name in IP.GR, or will transfer a domain from another registrant to IP.GR.

      This subscription is provided by the company without time limitations and as long as the specified domain is active, registered to IP.GR and the domain's name servers are not changed by the client.

      Every free hosting subscription is linked to a specific domain name. If the domain expires or is transferred to another registrant, then immediately and automatically the subscription is terminated and deleted.

      The technical specifications of the free hosting subscription are published in detail on the company's website and the client will be informed for every change/upgrade in these specifications from this website.

      This service is provided by the company without any charges and without any guarantee. Moreover, the company reserves the right to interrupt this service at any moment.

  3. Semi Dedicated Hosting

    1. Packages

      Semi Dedicated hosting packages are presented on a specially designed page on the company's website. The availability of these hosting packages is addressed to clients with websites and applications that have special requirements, that are not covered by the basic hosting packages.

      Typically, these websites and applications have system resource requirements larger than regular websites/applications. The Semi Dedicated packages and the system resource provision level are detailed in the Services page and the client has the ability to study all of these features before purchasing any package. In this way, the packages become specific in their dynamics and the client has the ability to judge the suitability and sufficiency of the packages for the website he wants to install on them.

      The company can help the client in choosing the right customized hosting package if the client requests it. If the client order concerns the evaluation of a highly complex website, the company may provide the specific evaluation service with a pricing agreed with the client, as such a service is not covered by the standard services provided by the company, but it is provided complementarily to help the client choose the right hosting package when he is unable to provide a technical and measurable evaluation of his / her website.

    2. Usage policy and permissible use of servers

      The terms of use that apply to the Semi Dedicated hosting packages are the same as those of the basic hosting services as described above. Variations from the basic host are described with specific clarifications on the terms of use of the basic hosting category and for reasons of simplicity and ease of reading the terms of use are not covered here.

      The way the Semi Dedicated service is provided, the actions taken by the company for server insurance and all the other actions related to the management, the upgrade, the supervision and the support of these hosting packages are not different from the basic hosting services. The variations are basically the packet resources that are comparatively more than basic hosting packages to meet the needs of more demanding websites and applications.

  4. Reseller

    1. Description

      The Reseller service is for hosting websites with medium system resources and is similar to the basic hosting packages. The advantage of the Reseller hosting series is the existence of an intermediate reseller environment (WHM) through which the owner of the Reseller package can create hosting packages with its own specifications and benefits, always within the total resources assigned to him in the Reseller package.

      The technical specifications are described in detail on a specially designed page on the company's website, so the client can see the benefits and judge the suitability of the packages for the technical requirements of their applications.

      Reseller packages fit perfectly into people who are indirectly or directly hosting resellers and have websites without special or high system resource requirements. The ability to create standalone cPanel accounts provides a high level of security and independence between websites, and if a client is interested in hosting multiple different pages (medium requirements), it is safer to use a Reseller package than add addon domains to unique hosting packages.

      Addon domains are flexible when a website is in a basic hosting package and needs one or more additional sites, such as a website for publishing the company's balance sheet, a product brochure or a work portfolio etc. For all additional websites (microsites) that can be simply custom scripts or simple static pages without special requirements, they suitably serve the needs of packages with many additional domains. However, if the client wants to install independent websites, then a Reseller package better serves the needs of the client as it provides security, independence, and the ability to measure between his websites, as each has virtually its own standalone hosting package and the resources which the reseller itself has determined. Especially in the case of hosting open source applications where the need for application security upgrades is quite common, standalone hosting packages should be clearly preferred by the use of addon domains whether they are contained in a Reseller package or are standalone hosting packages or in the Semi Dedicated series.

    2. Fair use policy

      The policy of proper use for resellers is similar to that of other clients. Each hosting account in a Reseller package is treated for the proper use of services as all other hosting packages of the basic hosting series. You can refer to the fair use policy of the basic hosting services above. For simplicity and readability, these terms of use are not repeated here.

    3. Usage limits

      Each Reseller package has specific resources as detailed in the reseller hosting page of the company. Each autonomous cPanel account created by a reseller has a finite resource limit which is a mix of settings that defined by the reseller (disk space, email accounts, addon domains, alias domains, etc.) and settings that are common among all packages (cpu, ram, inodes, etc.).

      If a reseller has, among other things, websites that need more resources, he is able to purchase Semi Dedicated hosting packages to host those demanding websites and retain all other packages in the Reseller account. This way, the company covers the possibility of upgrading an account in a Reseller package, as the availability of more processing resources within the Reseller package is not feasible. Therefore, a hosting package that originally was a Reseller account can be upgraded and continue to be hosted as a Semi Dedicated package if the client desires it.

    4. Reseller support

      In the case of hosting resellers, it is worth noting that the company recognizes as the client, the one who has purchased the reseller package from the company by accepting these terms of use and not the reseller's clients who became the final recipients of the service provided by the reseller.

      The company is not required to service support requests that are not from the reseller itself and are related to its reseller package and its hosting packages. Resellers should clearly undertake to support and serve their clients and not refer them to the company for service.

      The company may only serve requests for reseller clients after special agreement with the reseller and possibly a special charge for them, without making any commitment that this will happen and depends on the capacity and dynamic service at the time of the request for support.

  5. Email

    1. Fair use policy

      The company considers self-evident the good use of the email service and is the exclusive responsibility of the client to avoid techniques that lead to the malicious use of the service. Therefore, the client should have the email recipients consent, otherwise, one of them may report this as spamming and cause a problem to the client and/or the servers.

      The use of the inbound and outbound mail servers that the company offers for each of the client's hosting packages is designed to serve the typical mailing needs of a website in contexts that do not cause a clutter in the provision of the service. For this reason, every hosting package has specific dynamics in terms of sending messages.

      Bulk mailing, even when there is consent from all recipients, is not included in the typical needs of a website. In such cases, you will need to use services that specialize in bulk sending large amounts of email messages. The company does not provide bulk mailing services, so the client will have to search for the desired solution on his own. The company can propose solutions at client's request and based on knowledge and appreciation of satisfactory online alternatives at any given time.

    2. Usage limits

      The usage limits for mailing are described in the Terms of Use section of the basic hosting packages, at the email subsection. In addition, reference may also be made to the description page of the service.

    3. Spam

      In case of sending unwanted mass messages repeatedly from the client's account - spamming -, exceeding the maximum permissible hourly limit for the hosting package, the ability to send messages is disabled without prior notification of the client and the client is informed within a reasonable time. Then the client under their own responsibility must carry out the necessary controls to ensure their application and/or network and properly formulate their policies to avoid future similar incidents.

  6. Domain Names

    IP.GR provides domain name registration services to the company's clients, provided they agree and follow the terms of use listed on the currency web page. In case IP.GR becomes aware of any client violating these terms, IP.GR has the right to suspend the account of this client, remove the name servers of the domain names the client has under management so that they cannot be used and finally, send the authorization codes to the client, in order to transfer the domains to another registrant within 7 days.

    With every domain name registration, the client has the ability to activate the forwarding and full DNS control services IP.GR is offering free of charge. If the client activates these services for a specific domain name, IP.GR does not control and has no responsibility for the final result and the content of the page in which the domain is redirected. These services can be used only when the page is redirected to web pages with legal content, according to the Greek legislation, do not contain pornographic, racist, or generally unethical material and do not affect third-party interests.

    No refund (in credit card or cash) can be done, when the procedure of registering, renewing or transferring domain names has been completed.

        5. OUR SERVICES:

          1. DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION.

            1. We are accredited registrars with ICANN for generic top level domain names ("gTLDs") (such as .com, .net, .org, etc.). ICANN oversees registrations and other aspects of the gTLDs. We also are registrars for a variety of country code top level domain names ("ccTLDs") (such as .co.uk, .de, etc.). For a partial list of registry administrators and for more information on gTLDs, see http://www.icann.org/tlds/.Domain name registrations are not effective until the registry administrator puts them into effect. Domain name registrations are only for limited terms which end on the expiration date. For domain names which are created as a new registration out of the pool of available domain names, the term begins on the date the domain name registration is acknowledged by the applicable registry. For domain name registrations which were not returned to the pool of available domain names, the term begins on the date the previous registrant's domain name registration was acknowledged by the applicable registry.

            2. We and your Primary Service Provider are not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the registry administrator, including those arising out of or related to a request to register, renew, modify the settings for, or transfer of a domain name registration. You acknowledge that domain name registration is a service, domain name registrations do not exist independently from services provided pursuant to this or a similar registration agreement with a registrar, domain name registration services do not create a property interest and you have no such property interest in any domain name(s) which you may register with us.

            3. If you submit an application for pre-registration of a domain name, we do not guarantee that the domain name will be secured for you, or that you will have immediate access to the domain name if secured. In the event two (2) or more pre-registration applications are received for the same domain name and the domain name is secured, all applicants will be invited to a private auction to decide who gets the domain name. If you are such an applicant and wish to participate in the auction, you must first acknowledge any trademark claims notice that is shown to you and agree to any additional terms and conditions which may be applicable. We reserve the right to cancel any pre-registration request at any time and for any reason.

          2. AFTER MARKET DOMAIN NAMES:

            1. We offer for sale domain names that are registered to third parties (also known as aftermarket domain names) in a variety of top level domain names ("After Market Domain Name(s)"). All After Market Domain Name registrations are offered on a first come, first served basis. If you are the first to complete an After Market Domain Name registration application for a particular domain name, including payment of the purchase price we designate, we will initiate a transfer of the relevant After Market Domain Name to your Account. If the After Market Domain Name is at another domain registrar at the time of your purchase, we will transfer your purchased After Market Domain Name to us at no cost to you and will add one year to the existing registration period. If the After Market Domain Name is already located with us as the domain registrar at the time of your purchase and it has ninety (90) days or less from the date of your purchase before expiration, we will renew your After Market Domain for you for free. If the After Market Domain Name is already located with us as the domain registrar at the time of your purchase and it has ninety-one (91) days or more before expiration, you are responsible for all renewal fees. Any subsequent renewals of the After Market Domain Name will be charged at the then-current renewal fee. Once you submit your order for an After Market Domain Name, you have entered into a valid, binding and enforceable contract to pay the designated purchase price for the After Market Domain Name. Because we are selling After Market Domain Names initially registered to third parties, we have no control and make no representations regarding the accuracy or legality of domain names advertised, the accuracy or legality of any domain name listing, or the right and the ability of the third party seller to transfer the After Market Domain Name or complete the transaction. We do not control whether or not third party sellers will complete a transaction. We reserve the right to reject or cancel your After Market Domain Name registration for any reason including, but not limited to, any pricing errors. In the event your After Market Domain Name registration is rejected or cancelled by us, for any reason, we will refund in full the amount of the purchase price for the After Market Domain Name as your sole remedy.

            2. Once the After Market Domain Name is transferred into your Account, such After Market Domain Name may not be transferred away from us to another registrar during the first sixty (60) days following the transfer, during which time the After Market Domain Name may be placed on transfer lock. All of your obligations under this Agreement which apply to the registration or renewal of domain name(s) created by you apply to any After Market Domain Name(s) acquired by you, including but not limited to prohibition against any Illegal Uses.

          3. NOT INCLUDED IN THE SERVICES:

            1. We are not responsible to determine whether the domain name(s) you select, or the use you or others make of the domain name(s), or other use of the Services, infringes legal rights of others. It is your responsibility to know whether or not the domain name(s) you select or use or allow others to use infringe legal rights of others.

            2. We might be ordered by a court or arbitrator to cancel, modify, or transfer your domain name; it is your responsibility to list accurate contact information in association with your Account and to communicate with litigants, potential litigants, and governmental authorities. It is not our responsibility to forward court orders or other communications to you. Our policy is to comply with court orders from courts of competent jurisdiction as well as UDRP and URS Panel decisions. If you contact us informing us that you are contesting a court order from a court of competent jurisdiction, we may, but are not obligated to, place a transfer lock on the domain name pending the outcome of the dispute. If you contact us informing us that you are contesting an adverse UDRP or URS Panel decision, your time limits and procedures to do so are subject to the requirements set forth in the UDRP or URS. We will not delay implementation of a UDRP or URS Panel decision based solely on your informing us that you intend to contest the decision.

          4. USE OF FREE SERVICES:

            1. In consideration for providing additional optional Services for which we do not charge an additional fee, including, but not limited to, free trials, URL forwarding, email forwarding, free parking page, free website hosting, free email services, or other free services which we may introduce from time to time (as such list may be modified by us from time to time) ("Free Services"), we may display advertising in conjunction therewith through the use of pop-up or pop-under browser windows, banner advertisements, audio or video streams, appendices to emails, or any other advertising means, and we may aggregate for our own use, related usage data by means of cookies and other similar means. You will not be entitled to any of the proceeds we may earn as a result of such advertising. We may discontinue any Free Services at any time with or without providing you prior notice.

            2. From time to time we may provide you with free or low-cost domain name(s) registration services ("Promotional Name(s)"). If we do so, the services for the Promotional Name(s) will be placed in the same Account as your other domain name(s) and you will be listed as the registrant, though we may point the Promotional Name to IP address(es) of our choosing. If you want to assume control over the services provided to the Promotional Name, including the right to transfer or push the Promotional Name service to other registrars or other Accounts or the ability to control the DNS settings for the Promotional Name, you must pay the promotional registration fee or renewal fee, if any, and the terms of this Agreement will apply to such Promotional Name(s). If you do not want the Promotional Name services, you may request that you be removed as the registrant of such Promotional Names and we may be listed as the domain name registrant or we may delete such domain names or make them available to others. For any domain name services, including these Promotional Names, for which you are listed as registrant but for which you do not pay the registration or renewal fee, we may assign name-servers to the domain name and point the domain name to IP address(es) designated by us until the registration or renewal fee is paid.

        6. SERVICES PROVIDED AT WILL; TERMINATION OR SUSPENSION OF SERVICES:

          1. We and your Primary Service Provider may reject your domain name registration application or elect to discontinue providing Services to you for any reason within thirty (30) days of a Service initiation or a Service renewal. Outside of this period, we and your Primary Service Provider may terminate or suspend the Services at any time for cause, which, without limitation, includes (i) registration of prohibited domain name(s), (ii) abuse of the Services, (iii) payment irregularities, (iv) allegations of illegal conduct or infringement of any third party intellectual property right or other right, (v) failure to keep your Account or WHOIS information accurate and up to date, (vi) failure to respond to inquiries from us for over fifteen (15) calendar days, (vii) failure to comply with ICANN or registry policies, or (viii) if your use of the Services involves us in a violation or alleged violation of any third party's rights or acceptable use policies, including but not limited to the transmission of unsolicited email or the violation or alleged violation of any intellectual property right or other right. No fee refund will be made when there is a suspension or termination of Services for cause.

          2. At any time and for any reason, we may terminate the Services thirty (30) days after we send notice of termination via mail or email, at our option, to the WHOIS contact information provided in association with your domain name registration. Following notice of termination other than for cause, you must transfer your domain name within such thirty (30) day notice period or risk that we may delete your domain name, transfer the registration services associated with your domain name to ourselves or a third party, or suspend or modify Services related to your domain name. If we terminate Services for a reason other than cause, we will provide a pro-rata refund of your fees.

          3. If we terminate or suspend the Services provided to you under this Agreement, we may then, at our option, make either ourselves or a third party the beneficiary of Services which are substantially similar to those which were previously provided to you. If we have grounds to terminate or suspend Services with respect to one domain name or in relation to other Services provided through your Account, we may terminate or suspend all Services provided through your Account.

          4. We and any registry reserve the right to deny, cancel, or transfer any domain name registration or transaction, or place any domain name(s) on lock, hold, or similar status, as we or the registry deem necessary, in either our or the registry's unlimited and sole discretion: (i) to protect the integrity and stability of the registry; (ii) to comply with any applicable registry policies and/or procedures or ICANN rules and regulations, including without limitation, the registry agreement; (iii) to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement, or any dispute resolution process; (iv) to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of us or the registry, as well as our or the registry's affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, and employees; (v) to correct mistakes by us, another registrar, or the registry in connection with the domain name; (vi) following an occurrence of any of the prohibited activities described in Section 4.b.ii above; (vii) per the terms of this Agreement; or (viii) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.


        7. FEES AND TAXES:

          1. You agree to pay, prior to the effectiveness of the desired Services, the applicable Service fees set forth on the Pricing Page or otherwise communicated to you. In the event any of the fees for Services change, we will use reasonable efforts to give you thirty (30) days prior notice of such changes on the Pricing Page or by other reasonable means. Please check the Pricing Page often for any changes to our Services fees. All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain name registration is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term, unless this Agreement specifically provides for a refund. At our option, we may require that you pay fees through a particular payment means (such as by credit card or by wire transfer) or that you change from one payment provider to another.

          2. Unless specified otherwise, the fees for the Services do not include taxes. If we are required to pay ICANN fees or United States or international sales, use, property, value-added ("VAT"), royalty, license, or other taxes based on your use of the Services, then you must pay such fees or taxes. This section does not apply to taxes based on our income.


        8. PAYMENT ISSUES: 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 your payment of fees for any Services, we and/or your Primary Service Provider may suspend access to any and all Accounts you have with us and/or your Primary Service Provider and all interests in and use of any domain name registration services, website hosting, and/or email services, including all data hosted on our systems and/or on the systems of your Primary Service Provider may be assumed by us or your Primary Service Provider, as the case may be, or may be terminated. We may reinstate your rights to and control over these Services solely at our discretion, and subject to our receipt of the unpaid fees and our then-current reinstatement fee set forth on the Pricing Page or otherwise communicated to you. Reinstatement of Services by your Primary Service Provider may be according to the terms between you and your Primary Service Provider relating to reinstatement. If you have an issue with credit card or other payment charges, you should contact your Primary Service Provider, first, and us, second, regarding the issue before you contact your credit card or other payment process company to request a charge back or reversal of the charges.

        9. EXPIRATION AND RENEWAL OF SERVICES: It is your responsibility to keep your own records and to maintain your own reminders regarding when your domain name registration or other Services are set to expire. With respect to domain name registration services, we and/or your Primary Service Provider will email a renewal notification approximately one (1) month and approximately one (1) week prior to each such domain name's expiration. In addition, if a domain name is not renewed, we and/or your Primary Service Provider will email an additional renewal notification within five (5) days after the expiration of such domain name's registration. All renewal notifications will be sent to primary contact for the Account associated with the domain name registration. It is your responsibility to maintain current and accurate credit card information should any Services be placed on "auto-renew." We and/or your Primary Service Provider will notify you when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid, your Services will expire or be cancelled. Payment must be made by credit card or such other method as we may allow or require from time to time. If you select automatic renewal of the Services, we may attempt to renew the Services a reasonable time before expiration, provided your credit card or other billing information is available and up to date. It is your responsibility to keep your billing information up to date and we are not required to, but may, contact you to update this information in the event that an attempted transaction is not processed successfully. Please note: for certain top level domain names, the automatic renewal option is not available.

        10. EXPIRATION OF A DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION: Immediately after the expiration of the term of domain name registration services and before deletion of the domain name in the applicable registry's database, we may direct the domain name to name-servers and IP address(es) designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements, and we may either leave your WHOIS information intact or we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name so that you are no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain name.

          1. Reactivation Period Process. For a period of approximately thirty (30) days after expiration of the term of domain name registration services, we may provide a procedure by which expired domain name registration services may be renewed. We may, but are not obligated to, offer this process, called the "reactivation period." You assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or after the expiration of the original term of domain name registration services to attempt to renew the domain name registration services. We may, in our sole discretion, choose not to offer a reactivation period and we shall not be liable therefore. The reactivation period renewal process, if any, may involve additional fees which we and your Primary Service Provider may determine. We may make expired domain name services(s) available to third parties, we may auction off the rights to expired domain name services (the auction beginning close to the end or after the end of the reactivation period), and/or expired domain name registration services may be re-registered to any party at any time.

          2. After the reactivation period, if any, we may:

            1. Discontinue the domain name registration services at any time thereafter without notice. In which case, certain registry administrators may provide procedures by which discontinued domain name registration services may nonetheless be renewed. We will participate in this process, typically called the "Redemption Grace Period" ("RGP"), for each gTLD registry administrator that provides it. We may, in our sole discretion, choose not to participate in the RGP process with respect to any or all of your ccTLD domain name registration services and we shall not be liable therefore. If available, RGP typically ends between thirty (30) and forty-two (42) days after the end of the reactivation period of the domain name services. The current RGP fee is set forth on the Pricing Page and does not include any registration fees that may also be due. We are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain name registration services are being discontinued; or

            2. Pay the registry's registration fee or otherwise provide for the registration services to be continued. In which case, we may then set the name-servers and the DNS settings for the domain name services, we may set the DNS to point to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host parking page(s) or a commercial search engine that may display paid advertisements, and we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name so that you are no longer the listed registrant of the expired domain name. We do not have to pay you any of the proceeds we may earn as a result. We are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain name registration services are being continued. The domain name will be designated as being in the extended redemption grace period ("ERGP"), and you will be allowed to assume, during the first 120 days of the then extant registration term, complete management of the domain name services, including the right to control the DNS settings, provided that you pay the ERGP fee (which is the same as the RGP fee) plus any registration fees. After the end of the 120-day period, if you do not exercise your rights under this provision, you have abandoned the domain name services, and relinquish all interests and use of the domain name services; or

            3. If we auctioned the domain name services to a third party, we may transfer the domain name registration services to such third party. In which case, the third party who won the auction for the domain name services will control the domain name services, including control over the WHOIS information and the DNS settings. You may recover the domain name registration services prior to the end of the reactivation period, as such reactivation period applied to you. We are not obliged to contact you to alert you that the domain name registration services are or were auctioned. We do not have to pay you any of the proceeds we may earn as a result of such an auction.

        11. TRANSFERS:

          1. Transfer of your domain name(s) services shall be governed by ICANN's transfer policy, available at http://www.icann.org/transfers/, including the Registrar Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy, available at http://www.icann.org/en/transfers/dispute-policy-12jul04.htm as well as the UDRP and URS as described in Section 17 of this Agreement, as these policies may be modified from time to time. To transfer your domain name(s) you should first login to your Account to lock or unlock your domain name(s) and/or to obtain the EPP "AuthCode" which is required to transfer domain services in an EPP registry (such as .org). Alternatively, you should contact your Primary Service Provider to have your domain name(s) services locked or unlocked or to obtain the EPP "AuthCode." If your Primary Service Provider is unresponsive, you may contact us to have your domain name(s) locked or unlocked or to obtain the EPP "AuthCode" though we may first contact your Primary Service Provider to request that the Primary Service Provider address the request. Only the registrant and the administrative contacts listed in the WHOIS information may approve or deny a transfer request. Without limitation, domain name services may not be transferred within sixty (60) days of initial registration, within sixty (60) days of a transfer, if there is a dispute regarding the identity of the domain name registrant, if you are bankrupt, or if you fail to pay fees when due. We will follow the procedures for both gaining and losing registrars as outlined in ICANN's transfer policies. Transfer requests typically take five (5) business days to be processed. A transfer will not be processed if, during this time, the domain name registration services expire, in which event you may need to reinstate the transfer request following a redemption of the domain name, if any. You may be required to resubmit a transfer request if there is a communication failure or other problem at either our end or at the registry. YOU ASSUME ALL RISK FOR FAILURE OF A TRANSFER WHETHER OR NOT THE TRANSFER PROCESS IS INITIATED CLOSE TO THE END OF A REGISTRATION TERM.

          2. Upon initial registration, we may place a "Registrar Lock" ("ClientTransferProhibited" status) on your domain name services and this will prevent your domain name services from being transferred without your authorization, though we are not required to do so. By allowing your domain name services to remain locked, you provide express objection to any and all transfer requests until the lock is removed, which may be done within your Account.

          3. You explicitly authorize us to act as your "Designated Agent" (as defined in ICANN's transfer policy) to approve each "Change of Registrant" (as defined in ICANN's transfer policy) on your behalf.

        12. OWNERSHIP OF INFORMATION AND DATA: We own 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. 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 registrant and all contacts 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 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. We do not have any ownership interest in your specific personal registration information outside of our rights in our domain name database.

        13. AGENTS AND LICENSES: If you are registering a domain name for or on behalf of someone else, you represent that you have the authority to and will bind that person as a principal to all terms and conditions provided herein. If you license the use of a domain name you register to us or a to third party, you remain the domain name holder of record, and remain responsible for all obligations at law and 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 and for ensuring non-infringement of any third party intellectual property rights or other rights.

        14. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY (a) SUSPENSION OR LOSS OF THE SERVICES, (b) USE OF THE SERVICES, (c) INTERRUPTION OF SERVICES OR INTERRUPTION OF YOUR BUSINESS, (d) ACCESS DELAYS OR ACCESS INTERRUPTIONS TO OUR WEB SITE(S) OR SERVICES OR DELAYS OR ACCESS INTERRUPTIONS YOU EXPERIENCE IN RELATION TO A DOMAIN NAME REGISTERED WITH US; (e) LOSS OR LIABILITY RESULTING FROM ACTS OF OR EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL (f) DATA NON-DELIVERY, MIS-DELIVERY, CORRUPTION, DESTRUCTION OR OTHER MODIFICATION; (g) THE PROCESSING OF AN APPLICATION FOR A DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION; (h) LOSS OR LIABILITY RESULTING FROM THE UNAUTHORIZED USE OR MISUSE OF YOUR ACCOUNT IDENTIFIER OR PASSWORD; OR (i) APPLICATION OF ANY DISPUTE POLICY. NEITHER WE NOR YOUR PRIMARY SERVICE PROVIDER WILL 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 WE OR YOUR PRIMARY SERVICE PROVIDER HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. IN NO EVENT SHALL OUR OR YOUR PRIMARY SERVICE PROVIDER'S MAXIMUM AGGREGATE LIABILITY EXCEED THE TOTAL AMOUNT PAID BY YOU FOR SERVICES, BUT IN NO EVENT GREATER THAN FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS (US$400.00). BECAUSE SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF LIABILITY FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES, IN SUCH STATES, OUR AND YOUR PRIMARY SERVICE PROVIDER'S LIABILITY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW.

        15. INDEMNITY: You hereby release and agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us, ICANN, the registry operators, and your Primary Service Provider, as well as the contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, and affiliates of such parties harmless from and against any and all liabilities, claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs, for third party claims relating to or arising under this Agreement, including any breach of any of your representations, warranties, covenants or obligations set forth in this Agreement, the Services provided hereunder, or your use of the Services, including, without limitation, infringement or alleged infringement by you, or by anyone else using the Services, of any intellectual property or other right of any person or entity, or from the violation or alleged violation of any of our or ICANN's operating rules or policies relating to the Services provided. We may seek written assurances from you in which you promise to indemnify, defend, and hold us harmless from the costs and liabilities described in this paragraph. Such written assurances may include, in our sole discretion, the posting of a performance bond(s) or other guarantees reasonably calculated to guarantee payment. Your failure to provide such assurances may be considered by us to be a breach of this Agreement by you and may, in our sole discretion, result in loss of your right to control the disposition of domain name Services for which you are the registrant and in relation to which we are the registrar of record. This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification (a) required under the UDRP, URS, or any other ICANN policy or any policy of any relevant registry; or (b) set forth elsewhere in this Agreement.

        16. REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES: YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT NEITHER THE REGISTRATION OF A DOMAIN NAME NOR THE MANNER IN WHICH IT IS DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY USED NOR THE USE OF OTHER OF THE SERVICES INFRINGES THE LEGAL RIGHTS OF A THIRD PARTY OR WILL OTHERWISE SUBJECT US TO A LEGAL CLAIM. THE SERVICES ARE INTENDED FOR USE BY PERSONS WHO ARE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OLD AND BY USING THE SERVICES, YOU REPRESENT AND WARRANT THAT YOU ARE AT LEAST EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OLD AND ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PROCUREMENT OF THE SERVICES IS ACCURATE. ALL SERVICES ARE PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS" AND WITH ALL FAULTS. EXCEPT FOR OUR STATEMENT REGARDING OUR ACCREDITATION AS ICANN-APPROVED DOMAIN NAME REGISTRARS, WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, IN CONNECTION WITH THIS AGREEMENT OR THE 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, WE MAKE 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. ANY MATERIAL AND/OR DATA DOWNLOADED OR OTHERWISE OBTAINED THROUGH THE USE OF OUR E-MAIL FORWARDING OR OTHER EMAIL SERVICE IS DONE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK AND YOU WILL BE SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER SYSTEM OR LOSS OF DATA THAT RESULTS FROM THE DOWNLOAD OF SUCH MATERIAL AND/OR DATA. WE MAKE NO WARRANTY REGARDING ANY GOODS OR SERVICES PURCHASED OR OBTAINED THROUGH OUR E-MAIL SERVICES OR ANY TRANSACTIONS ENTERED INTO THROUGH OUR E-MAIL SERVICES. NO ADVICE OR INFORMATION, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, OBTAINED BY YOU FROM US SHALL CREATE ANY WARRANTY NOT EXPRESSLY MADE HEREIN. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF CERTAIN WARRANTIES, SO SOME OF THE ABOVE EXCLUSIONS MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

        17. DISPUTE RESOLUTION POLICY: You are bound by all ICANN consensus policies and all policies of any relevant registry, including but not limited to: (i) the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP"), which is available at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-rules-24oct99.htm and http://www.icann.org/dndr/udrp/policy.htm along with the UDRP Rules and all Supplemental Rules of any UDRP provider; and (ii) the Uniform Rapid Suspension System ("URS"), which is available at http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/applicants/urs, along with the URS Rules and all Supplemental Rules of any URS provider. The UDRP and URS may be changed by ICANN (or ICANN's successor) at any time. 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 UDRP and URS in effect at the time your domain name registration is disputed by the third party. 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 of the UDRP and URS. If you or your domain name is the subject of litigation, we may deposit control of your domain name record into the registry of the judicial body by providing a party with a registrar certificate.

        18. GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION FOR DISPUTES:

          1. Except as otherwise set forth in the UDRP, URS, or any similar ccTLD policy, with respect to any dispute over a domain name registration, this Agreement, your rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of Washington, as if the Agreement was a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within the State of Washington.

          2. Any dispute, claim or controversy arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of the agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in King County, Washington, before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered by JAMS pursuant to its Comprehensive Arbitration Rules and Procedures. Judgment on the Award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. YOU AND WE AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A CLASS MEMBER IN ANY FORM OF A CLASS PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and we expressly agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a class proceeding. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction. Service of process on you by us in relation to any dispute arising under this Agreement may be served upon you by first class mail to the address listed by you in your Account and/or domain name WHOIS information or by electronically transmitting a true copy of the papers to the email address listed by you in your Account and/or domain name WHOIS information.

          3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for the adjudication of third party disputes (i.e., disputes between you and another party, not us) concerning or arising from use of domain names registered hereunder, you shall submit without objection, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the subject matter and personal jurisdiction of the courts (i) of the domicile of the registrant as it appears in the public WHOIS record for the domain name(s) in controversy, and (ii) where we are located, currently those State or federal courts whose geographic districts include Bellevue, Washington.

        19. NOTICES: Any notices required to be given under this Agreement by us to you will be deemed to have been given if delivered in accordance with the Account and/or domain name WHOIS information you have provided.

        20. ADDITIONAL REGISTRY REQUIREMENTS. Some registries have additional contractual requirements that you agree to by registering domain names from those registries. You are responsible for reviewing any terms and conditions applicable to or provided by such registries. You can find more information about these additional contractual terms here: https://www.enom.com/terms/terms-reseller-additional.aspx

        21. GENERAL: This Agreement and all applicable ICANN policies and the policies of any relevant registry, including but not limited to the UDRP and URS, together with all modifications, constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us, and supersede and govern all prior proposals, agreements, or other communications. You represent, warrant, and agree that upon entering into this Agreement, that you are not relying upon and have not relied upon any representation, promise, or statement made by anyone which is not recited, contained, or embodied in this Agreement. 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 us 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 us 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. We will amend or replace such provision with one that is valid and enforceable and which achieves, to the extent possible, our original objectives and intent 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 us. The parties hereby incorporate the requirements of 41 CFR 60-1.4(a), 300.5(a) and 741.5, if applicable.

      3. Client Obligations

If the difference is in favor of the client, the client will be refunded the amount corresponding to that.

      5. Service activation - Duration of use

        The service is activated after submitting and financially settling an order.

      The pre-registration application fees consist of two expenses: the domain's registration fees, which depend on the domain itself and the pre-registration application submission cost. The application cost covers all administrative expenses and cannot be refunded to the client. In case the domain is not successfully registered, the client will be refunded only the domain's registration fees.

      Despite the fact the owner's info will not be available for public search, the client still preserves any legal right on the domain, such as to alter the domain's owner, transfer it to another registrar or assign it. The client will also preserve the right to control and modify all settings concerning this domain, as well as renew the domain until its expiration date.

      The client also preserves all the obligations deriving from the domain's registration, as they are described in former paragraphs. The client also remains responsible for any monetary or legal claims that might arise from the use of this domain.

      The service can be renewed at its expiration date, for as long as the client needs. The client will receive relative notifications before the service's expiration date. In case the service is not renewed until its expiration date, it will be automatically disabled, without any further notice.

    8. Registrant's Personal Data

      Regarding the collection of personal data for the client, the company collects and consequently processes only the necessary data for the provision of services defined by the operator/registry, having the authorization of data processing and not using them for other purposes. The rights of the registrant origin from the regulation of the cooperating operator/registry, which IP.GR serves and follows without any differentiation and is not dictated in any way by the company or any third party.

      In cases where the company requests supplementary personal data from registrants, such as VAT or ID No. for the purpose of distinguishing between persons who carry same information (like their name), then the client consents to the disposal of these data and that the company collects them as the personal data controller. If the client is acting on behalf of a third party and therefore the alleged person is not the client himself, then it is solely responsibility of the client to prove that he has the prior consent of the data subject (the registrant) and that he has lawfully transmitted the personal data of the registrant in the company while accepting the processes of the cooperating registry and the company, regarding them.

      The company enables the client to submit specific requests regarding their personal data in accordance with the requirements of the European Privacy Policy (GDPR) and in accordance with Greek law, which the client can access through the "I want to" section of his account. The company then receives the client's request, studies it and responds in a manner that complies with the requirements of the applicable legislation and the relevant registry.

  7. Transaction Security – Billing

    1. Client Identification

      To identify a client, IP.GR uses two unique data elements, the client account email address and the password. Both are inserted into the system during the client's registration to the company's website and can be modified at any moment and as many times the client wishes. Access to the account created has only the client, and only through the data the client has specified (email and password). Moreover, the company has taken all possible measures to avoid leaks of these. The client is exclusively responsible for maintaining their secrecy and withholding these data of third persons. The company suggests, for safety reasons, that the password should be frequently altered and avoiding the use of easily traced passwords (e.g. birthdays). In addition, during the creation of a new password, the client must use both letters and numbers.

    2. Transaction Security

      All transactions conducted via IP.GR's website are governed by the International and European Law, regulating matters related to e-commerce, as long as by the Law referring to consumer protection (L. 2251/1994), which regulates matters concerning remote sales. Protecting the transaction confidentiality is self-evident. Every piece of information revealed to the company by the clients is confidential, and every possible measure has been taken to avoid leakage of this information. In addition, this information is used only when considered necessary for the fulfillment of the services provided. The company shall not reveal any information provided by clients unless there is a court or other public authority order. For their personal safety, clients should also treat the information provided by the company as confidential and undisclosed and should not reveal them to any third person. In case of using credit cards during transactions with IP.GR, the company does not, in any case, keep the client's credit card information and has no right to use again these data, for any other reason than completing the transaction in question.

    3. Billing Policy

      The prices posted on the company's website are in euros and do not include VAT. According to the category in which each transaction belongs, the prices are charged with a 24%, 17% or 0% VAT or as defined by the law depending on the case. During the client's registration, the company assumes that the transactions that will follow belong to the regular VAT surcharge and the prices used for these transactions contain a 24% VAT. In case the client meets the criteria to be either included in the reduced VAT category, or conduct an intra-community transaction without VAT charges, has to primarily inform the company, before conducting any transactions.

      The company keeps the right to alter the service prices contained to the company's price table, without any previous notification to the company's clients, other than the relative announcement to the company's website. Any alteration to the prices will be valid from the moment that it is done. Every service purchase is priced with the price valid at the moment that the purchase is conducted and posted on the company's price table. The payment for the service purchase will be done in advance. In case there are any fees for completing the transaction (e.g bank commissions), they are borne exclusively by the client. Moreover, for an order to be completed, the client should have previously settled the financial cost of the order in its entirety. Orders cannot be executed with a deposit or partial payment for the order cost.

    4. Payment Options

      1. Credit Card or Paypal Payment

        IP.GR offers the option of payment for all services provided to the client by credit card or through Paypal. When the client selects in the order procedure to pay using a credit card, the client will be transferred via a secure connection to the environment of collaborating bank Eurobank-Ergasias, where the client may insert the card information. The card will be charged with the amount corresponding to the service selected. This process is completely safe and at no stage of the client's credit card details are disclosed to us or to any third party other than Eurobank-Ergasias bank which is authorized to process online transactions of IP.GR.

        Similarly, during the order, the client can choose to pay through a Paypal account. If paying by credit card or Paypal it is necessary to establish a good faith between the client and the company, to avoid online fraud phenomena. For this reason, in the first transaction of the client via credit card or Paypal, it may be necessary for the company to proceed with all checks required to verify the correctness, validity and legality of all information the client provides the company. In this case, the client order will not be executed until the process is completed. The client's credit card or Paypal account will be charged only once. The services provided by the company will not be renewed upon expiry with automatic charge. Before the expiration of the service, the client will be informed and if desired can proceed with renewing the service by following the relative procedure. For payments via Paypal, the client is charged with the service fees 3,4% + 0,35 euro.

      2. Pay with e-banking through PayByBank

        Payment through e-banking is a payment method that combines speed, automation and security for the client with their bank's e-banking environment. By choosing the payment via e-banking the client receives an informative email with the order summary and a payment code. Then the client connects to the bank's e-banking environment where finds the PayByBank option from the available list of services. By choosing this service the client can proceed to the payment, using the available payment code. Within 3 to 15 minutes, our company receives an update from PayByBank and executes the client's order in an automated way, so it is not necessary for the client to further inform us. In case a technical problem arises in one of the partner parties (Client's Bank, DIAS, PayByBank), the delay may be longer than 15 minutes, so if the services ordered by the client are not available within a reasonable period of time and always within 24 hours from the execution of the payment, it is suggested that the client inform us in order to further review it and provide the ordered services.

      3. Bank Account Deposit Payment

        For the clients that do not wish to use a credit card, there are alternative payment methods (bank account deposit, cash in IP.GR's offices). In case of a bank account deposit, the client should place as a deposit etiology for the transaction, the order code, which the client has received in the email containing all transaction data. In case of additional fees for the transaction completion, these are exclusively borne by the client. The bank accounts provided by the company are only for payments via bank deposit in a bank branch or Online transfer from a bank account to the bank account of the company in the same bank (eg from Eurobank account to Eurobank account). These accounts can not accept payment via wire transfer. If the client wishes to make payment via remittance from another bank beside Eurobank, Alpha Bank, Piraeus Bank and the National Bank of Greece, the client should first contact the company and follow the given instructions. The company may accept bank remittance only if the client is charged for all the expenses (OUR). Finally, after a bank account deposit, the client has the responsibility to inform the company, via phone, email or fax, about the transaction code number and the Bank branch the payment was made.

    5. Order Pricing

      1. Pricing under a special tax scheme

        In case the customer is invoiced under special tax circumstances, both in Greece and in countries inside and outside the European Union, he must inform the company or provide the necessary documents, which the company will ask for, such as a copy of his identity or his company stamp, before proceeding with his order. If the customer does not inform the company before placing an order, the order will include a VAT charge.

      2. Information on pricing

Communication can be done either by telephone or by email. If the customer fails to respond within 30 days, a receipt will be issued.

    6. Order Implementation

      The orders paid successfully via credit card, PayPal or PayByBank are automatically put through, if possible, depending on the service contained in each order, provided that all collaborating networks (registries, ISPs) are properly functioning.

      In case the order is paid through any other means (payment in a bank branch, bank order, transfer to account) or in case of failure of the implementation of the order while paid through credit card (e.g. due to unavailability or malfunction of the registries or any other collaborating networks), the implementation of the order will be completed during working days and hours, after the client has relatively informed the company about the payment, as mentioned above.

    3. Personal data maintained by IP.GR online and offline

      IP.GR maintains the least possible personal data of clients and only for issues related to the operation of the services they enjoy from the company, as well as security issues and ensuring the smooth provision of the service.

      1. User account data:

        In order to create an account, the prospective client is required to complete the registration form on the IP.GR's website by accepting the terms of use, which are available under the "Terms of Use" option on the IP.GR website. For a completed client account, information such as Name and Surname and/or Business Name (if business account), Contact Telephone, Address Details, Tax Information (VAT number) are requested.

        This information is requested in order to enable client communication whenever necessary, for client service-related issues or for procedural issues such as service pricing. The company maintains and processes these data in the capacity of the personal data controller and the client consents to this actively, by accepting the terms of use of the service.

      2. Domain names data:

        For domain name registration, IP.GR asks the client to specify domain owner information, which may be different or identical to client's account data, depending on who owns the domain. Because each client can register domain names on any data he wants, the client's account can accumulate data from many different domain owners that only the client can access these data after a login on the company's website, as well as IP.GR when it comes to managing the client's services, for example in domain renewals, pricing, supervision of proper operation or at the request of a state authority and with the necessary legal safeguards laid down by the law at the time and for each circumstance.

        The company maintains and processes these data in the capacity of the personal data processor and the capacity of the data controller is assigned to the respective operator/registry. See the Registrant's Personal Data section of this page for more details.

        For example, domain's owner data are only given by a public prosecutor's order or if otherwise specified by the registrant, so in a corresponding case IP.GR operates in the manner prescribed by law. You can see detailed information on managing personal data concerning the domain names under the Domain Names category of this page.

      3. Client requests:

        Clients may send emails via email addresses to the company's email address or fax, enclosing in some cases documents (ID's or corporate stamps). Such requests are, for example, changing account data, transferring a domain from one client account to another within IP.GR, transferring hosting subscriptions from one client account to another within IP.GR, deleting active hosting subscriptions, etc. The company maintains a copy of the attached records of the requests at its offices in a specially protected place for a reasonable period of time, related to the duration of the relevant service, the legislation covering the service and the wish or denial of the client as to maintain this file.

      4. Transfers - Domain name changes:

        Actions of brand name change and transfer related to .gr or .ελ domains are made as orders through the IP.GR platform, and after the financial settlement of the order, the domain administrator receives the request for the relevant transaction. After completing the required fields, the application is forwarded to IP.GR to subsequently forward it to the National Telecommunications and Post Commission to complete the process. A copy of the application is kept at the IP.GR offices in a specially protected location.

      5. Proof of payments:

        When orders are settled financially, clients receive either by email or fax a copy of their payment, usually the bank deposit they have made. Copies are retained in the system until the IP.GR bank accounts are credited with the corresponding amount. After the payment is received, the evidence is permanently deleted by the system.

      6. Tickets – Support and communication requests:

        Electronic communication between the company and clients on matters relating to the company's services or problems faced by clients and any other form of communication are kept in the system for a reasonable time and are deleted following the client's order or during the periodic maintenance of the systems.

      7. Data about SSL security certificates:

These include personal data such as address details, business name, business role, email, etc. The company does not use this data other than issue the security certificate.

      8. Data for other services:

  10. Limitation of Liability

    1. Service Level Agreement (SLA)

      The company's responsibility towards its clients is described in detail in this section of the Service Level Agreement (SLA), as follows:

      1. Guarantee

        The guarantee provided by the company about the hosting services available to its clients provides the compensation of its clients in the form of an extension in their hosting time when the service interruption time exceeds the stipulated limits and is not in any way related to a refund or other goods. By accepting the terms of use of the company, the client also agrees and accepts the Service Level Agreement (SLA) of the company and undertakes that he will not demand any kind of claim by the company for data loss or other damages may result from the failure of the company to provide services or technical support.

        The company aims to provide its clients with hosting services in an uninterrupted manner regardless of their geographical location and the access time of the hosting services provided. The dependence of our services on intermediaries but also by the nature and technology of computer systems and networks, makes it impossible to provide this guarantee in absolute terms, thus resulting in a fair rate of service interruption which the company agrees to return to the client by expanding the expiration time of their hosting subscription as described below.

        The downtime is measured on a monthly basis and technically controlled by the company through the packets exchanged by the server with other nodes on the internet. In the event that the server stops exchanging data packets with other internet nodes and not responding in none of its services, the company considers that there is a service interruption and the downtime counts from the point at which the interruption of data traffic was detected by the server. The inertia of a server due to lack of requests is not included in this category and is a normal period when the server does not exchange packets but is available to serve any requests that will receive.

        The percentage of service interruptions that the company offers as a guarantee is the 1% of the time on a monthly basis, so the company estimates that 99% of its hosting services are active.

        The client has the ability to inform the company if they notice a non-response of the company's server. The company will study the client's request and if it is technically proven by the company's research or even by client's proof that the server is not responding, then the company undertakes to compensate the client as defined in this section, from the reporting time of the service discontinuation or the point of evidence of service interruption, if this can be identified and differs from the above.

        Compensation in the form of time extension at the end of the client's hosting subscription is defined as follows:

        • Monthly correct operation: between 97% - 99% has as compensation 50% credit of the month.
        • Monthly correct operation: under 96.99% has as compensation 100% credit of the month.

        Appropriations apply only the hosting service itself and not accompanying services such as SSL purchase, domain purchase, backorder, id protect, e.t.c.

      2. Limitations

        The company has not the responsibility nor the obligation to pay any form of compensation or credit for the interruption or malfunction of his services to the client, in each of the cases where the following restrictions apply:

        • In the case of damage from large-scale natural disasters such as floods, fires, earthquakes, etc., in the case of human intervention in the form of hostilities such as terrorist attacks, warfare, electronic warfare, attack by hackers or viruses, in the case of interruption of the service by a supreme state authority and with a proven cause of interruption and other similar level reasons that cannot be fully described in this section.
        • If the client reports an interruption of the service that the company does not accept and at the same time proves the proper functioning of the service. If this is caused continuously and unjustifiably by the client, thereby damaging the company through futile company's involvement with non-existing problems, then the company reserves the right to charge the spent work hours to the client and, if he refuses to pay, discontinue the provided services for the reason that this behavior violates these Terms of Use multiple times.
        • IP.GR does not bear any responsibility for poor network quality, malfunctioning or disruption of the network elsewhere on the Internet that prevents the client's access, as well as being not responsible for the browsers, DNS, or the internet service provider selected by the client, which may make it impossible for the service to be accessible by the client.
