Terms Of Service

I. Registration Policies and Acceptable Use

Before the Registry Operator will accept applications for registration from Registrar, all domain name applicants in the .buzz TLD (“Applicants”) must:

1. Enter into an electronic or paper registration agreement with the Registrar (“Registrar”), in accordance with the ICANN RAA and this Agreement. Such electronic or paper registration agreement shall include, at a minimum, the following certifications:

a) The data provided in the domain name registration application is true, correct, up to date and complete; and

b) The domain name registrant has the authority to enter into the registration agreement; and

c) The domain name will not be used for distributing malware, abusively operating botnets, phishing, piracy, trademark or copyright infringement, fraudulent or deceptive practices, counterfeiting or otherwise engaging in activity contrary to applicable law, and providing (consistent with applicable law and any related procedures) consequences for such activities including suspension of the domain name.

II. Incorporation of Applicable Dispute Resolution Services

In addition, Registrar agrees to incorporate the following text (or translation of such text into relevant language) into their Registration Agreement:

“The Registrant acknowledges having read and understood and agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of the following documents, as they may be amended from time to time, which are hereby incorporated and made an integral part of this Agreement:

(i) The Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, available at http://www.icann.org/en/help/dndr/udrp/policy;

(ii) The Uniform Rapid Suspension Procedure and Rules, available at http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/announcements-and-media/announcement-05mar13-en; and

(iii) The Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy, available at http://www.icann.org/en/help/dndr/tdrp.”

The UDRP sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between a Registrant and any party other than the Registry Operator or Registrar over the registration and use of an Internet domain name registered by Registrant. Registry Operator is not required to ensure that a domain name is being used in compliance with the UDRP.

The URS is one of several new Rights Protection Mechanisms available in the New gTLD Program. It complements the existing UDRP by offering a lower-cost, faster path to relief for rights holders experiencing the most clear-cut cases of infringement. The URS Procedure defines the URS claims process. The Rules will help service providers implement URS in a consistent manner.

The TDRP sets forth the terms under which a dispute relating to Inter-Registrar domain name transfers are handled. Registrars are encouraged to first of all attempt to resolve the problem among the Registrars involved in the dispute. In cases where this is unsuccessful and where a registrar elects to file a dispute, the TDRP procedures apply Registry Operator is not required to ensure that a domain name is being used in compliance with the TDRP processes.
