2.3. Domain Name Registration
If you register a domain name through UD, UD will register a second or third level (according to your order) domain name on your behalf, provided such domain name is available for registration. Your domain registration will be effective upon occurrence of all of the following:
- You offer to UD this Agreement, without modification, for UD's acceptance;
- UD accepts this Agreement and your domain registration application;
- UD receives payment of the registration, renewal and reinstatement fees as applicable; and
- UD delivers the domain registration information you provide either to the registry administrator for the applicable top level domain (TLD) or to a third-party registrar who delivers such information to the registry administrator for the applicable TLD and the registry administrator and, if applicable, the third-party registrar puts into effect your domain registration application.
UD only acts as an intermediary between you and the organization providing the domain name, which might be a third-party registrar and/or registry. UD does not guarantee or otherwise take any responsibility for delivering the domain registration information you provide immediately, promptly or in any specific timeframe to the registry administrator for the applicable TLD(s) or to a third-party registrar who delivers such information to the registry administrator for the applicable TLD. Especially UD does not take responsibility that a domain name that is listed as available at the time of order is not actually registered by a third party at that time or any time in the future and therefore cannot be registered for You. UD has no influence over the assignment of domain names. The registration of your domain name is subject to the terms and conditions of those third-party registrars and registries, and is also subject to the terms of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP"). Additional registration terms and conditions apply for domains under certain TLDs. You agree that, if the registration or reservation of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions of the UDRP in effect at the time of the dispute. UD assumes no liability in the event the domain name is unavailable or otherwise not assigned to you, and does not warrant or guarantee that assigned domain names do not infringe the rights of third parties, or that you will retain the rights to that domain name for any period of time. Upon payment in full of any and all registration fees, UD shall not own or otherwise legally control any domain name registered on your behalf
If you submit an application for pre-registration of a domain name, UD does not guarantee that the name will be secured for you, or that you will have immediate access to the domain name if secured. UD may use third party service providers for the pre-registration services.
You acknowledge and agree that UD or its agents, assignees or licensees may associate any data of any kind, at UD's sole discretion, with the domain name registered or any URL incorporating said domain name until you replace such data with Your Website, at such times as Your Website is no longer available, and upon termination for any reason, for as long as UD or UD's agent, assignee or licensee continue to be listed as the hosting entity with the domain name registry used to register such domain name. This paragraph shall apply to any and all web pages generated by UD or its affiliates, including but not limited to 404 error pages.
You represent and warrant that your domain name does not infringe the copyright, trademark, or any other intellectual property rights of any person or company and that your domain name is otherwise in compliance with the terms of this agreement, in particular the provisions of Section 7.
You shall inform UD of any claim or potential claim against your domain name, including but not limited to the initiation of a dispute under the UDRP, within five days of notification of same. Should you lose your right to use a domain name which is used in connection with the UD Services, whether through expiration of the domain name, judicial decree, administrative decisions of the UDRP or otherwise, you agree to inform UD immediately of the party to whom the domain name is to be transferred and you authorize UD to take any and all action necessary to effect such transfer.
UD will accept the transfer of domain names from other registrars, provided however, that you will be required to pay for an initial year of registration fees upon transfer. By requesting the transfer of your domain name you authorize UD to debit your Payment Account for this registration fee and any related fees or charges.
If Whois Protection Services are offered by UD these are subject to the additional TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR PRIVATE DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION, which are incorporated herein by reference.
UD may suspend performance under or terminate this Agreement, cease transmission of data associated with your domain name, permanently remove Your Data from UD Equipment, and take any other actions it deems necessary, at its sole discretion, immediately and without notice, to comply with the UDRP or relevant laws if it is informed or otherwise believes, at its sole discretion, that your domain name violates the intellectual property rights of any third party or is otherwise the subject of a dispute. As more completely set forth in Sections 5, 6, and 9, you waive any and all claims you may have, now and forever, against UD relating to the registration, use, and subsequent transfers of your domain name. You further agree to indemnify and hold harmless UD from and against any such claims.
UD may, at its sole discretion, provide you with UD Software in combination with Your Services. Upon payment of all fees due and owing to UD under this Agreement, UD hereby grants, and you hereby accept, a nontransferable, revocable, non-sublicensable, and non-exclusive license to use the UD Software and all related documentation for your own personal or business use during the term of this Agreement.

UD may limit the functionality of any such third party Online Software, at its sole discretion.
From time to time UD may provide its customers with the ability to download from its site certain third-party software (the "Third Party Software"). The license conditions governing the use of the Third Party Software may differ from UD's own software licenses. Customers of UD are bound by the conditions of all licenses pertaining to such Third Party Software and should make themselves familiar with their terms and conditions. Some such Third Party Software is provided under license from Microsoft Corporation ("Microsoft Software"), and customers using Microsoft Software are bound by the T&C Microsoft Software Products, which are incorporated herein by reference. UD does not provide Technical Support for the Third Party Software. THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE IS OFFERED "AS-IS." THE PROVISION AND OFFERING OF THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE BY UD DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN ENDORSEMENT OF THE THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE, NOR CAN UD MAKE ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES REGARDING THE USE AND FUNCTIONALITY OF SUCH THIRD PARTY SOFTWARE.

Fees for domain name registrations pursuant to the Fee Schedule apply for a period of one year of registration (payment period) of the respective domain name. The fee for the first year of such registration at UD is due immediately upon the registration of the domain.
Unless terminated in due time (see Section 14), at the end of a payment period your respective contract with UD will be prolonged each year for additional one year payment periods. For each successive payment period the fee is due forty-five (45) days before the beginning of such payment period.
The regulations of Sections 3.2.1 and 3.2.2 apply, whether or not the domain has been newly registered, transferred to UD or moved into your Portfolio from another Portfolio at UD. This means that no prepayments for any such domain(s) at another service provider, registrar, registry or any third party will be credited, accepted or considered in any way by UD.
You agree that you are responsible for any and all fees and costs related to the registration of your domain name, and you authorize UD to debit Your Payment Account for any such fees and costs, and you further authorize UD to debit your Payment Account for all fees for successive payment periods, and any related fees or charges up to forty-five (45) days in advance of the beginning of the respective payment period.
Should the Payment Account provider fail to honor any debit related to your domain or should the Payment Account provider reverse any such debit - for whatever reason-, the contract for your domain may be cancelled by UD at its sole discretion without notice. UD may, at its sole discretion, not renew, release, cancel, or otherwise dispose of or utilize Your domain name as it sees fit, with no obligation to you whatsoever. You will still be obliged to pay any fees that have already become due.
In the event that UD determines that the services of a collection agency are necessary or appropriate to collect amounts due under this paragraph, which determination shall be made at UD's sole and unfettered discretion, any and all collection agency fees and other costs of collection shall be added to any amounts due under this provision.
All Fees must be paid in United States Dollars (USD) in advance of the provision of services. UD will charge fee(s) and any additional fees to Your Payment Account unless specifically provided otherwise. You also agree that UD may automatically debit your Payment Account, without further authorization from you, for any renewal term, additional services, and any fees or expenses applicable to Your Services or Your Website. If payment in full is not received by UD from the provider of your Payment Account or its agents, you agree to pay all amounts due by you for Your Services upon demand by UD.
UD may offer subsequent promotional rates or special offers, the terms of which may or may not be more favorable than the terms and conditions for Your Services. Any such promotions or modifications shall not effect your obligations under this Agreement. Promotional fees may be subject to additional terms and conditions which, to the extent they conflict with the terms of this Agreement, shall govern. Promotional fees and special offers may not be combined.
UD offers a service uptime guarantee for the UD Services of 97,00 %.

You shall pay all costs of collection, including reasonable attorney's fees and costs, in the event any invoice requires collection efforts. All accounts referred to a collection agency shall be subject to an additional fee of $18.95, which must be paid in full before the account is reactivated.
International Customers bear the risk of currency fluctuations and any fees or taxes associated with the conversation of foreign currencies into USD. Certain UD Services will not be available to International Customers until UD is able to receive satisfactory confirmation from such customer's Payment Account provider, at UD's sole discretion, that the funds will be available for debit from the International Customer's account. Orders from International Customers will not be accepted unless the country provided in the contact information matches that on file for the Payment Account.
Upon cancellation of this Agreement fees for certain services, including but not limited to domain name registration and maintenance, are not refundable, neither in total nor prorated, unless provided otherwise by applicable local law. UD may, at its sole discretion, refund other amounts as it deems necessary or advisable.
4. NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED AGREEMENT TO DISSEMINATE MATERIALS THAT ARE INCONSISTENT WITH YOUR WARRANTIES.
Receipt by UD of data for storage in Your Website Space and/or transmission via UD's Equipment which are inconsistent with your warranties as set forth in Section 7 herein shall not constitute an agreement by UD to allow the UD Services or the UD Equipment to be used to disseminate such information or data in whole or in part, by any means, or if once disseminated via the use of UD's Services or Equipment, to continue to disseminate such data.
