Authentic Web Registration Agreement

IN THIS REGISTRATION AGREEMENT, “Registrant”, “you” and “your” refers to the you and your Users of each domain name registration, “we”, “us” and “our” refers to Authentic Web Inc. (“AW”), and “Services” refers to the domain name registration services provided by us (the “Registrar”). Any reference to a “registry,” “Registry” or “Registry Operator” shall refer to the registry administrator of your TLDs. This Agreement and the Master Services Agreement and any Schedules thereto explain our obligations to you, and explains your obligations to us for the Services.

SELECTION OF A DOMAIN NAME. You acknowledge and agree that we cannot guarantee to any of your authorized users who are permitted to register and/or manage domain names under the TLD for which we are providing Services (the “User”) that the Users will obtain a desired domain name, even if an inquiry indicates that a domain name is available at the time of the User’s application. You and your Users represent that, to the best of your knowledge and belief, neither the registration of the domain name nor the manner in which you and your Users intend to use any domain name, infringes upon the legal rights of a third party and further, that the domain name is not being registered for, nor shall it at any time whatsoever be used for, any unlawful purpose.

FEES. As consideration for the Services, you agree to pay us the fees as set out in the Master Services Agreement and any commercial summary as applicable. You agree and understand that AW may terminate this Agreement and/or cancel, suspend, and/or transfer any domain name if: (i) information provided by you or your Users is false, inaccurate, incomplete, unreliable, misleading or otherwise secretive; or (ii) you or your Users have failed to maintain, update and keep your Account Information true, current, complete, accurate and reliable. You acknowledge that a breach of this Section 3 will constitute a material breach of our Agreement, which will entitle either us or the registry to terminate this Agreement immediately upon such breach without any refund and without notice to you.

TERM. This Agreement will remain in effect until such time that the Master Services Agreement is terminated, has expired, or all domain names that AW manages on Your behalf have been transferred to another registrar, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall cease.

MODIFICATIONS TO AGREEMENT. You acknowledge that the practice of registering and administering domain names is constantly evolving; therefore, you agree that AW may modify this Agreement, or any other related and/or applicable agreement, as is necessary to comply with its agreements with ICANN or to reasonably adjust to changing circumstances. All amendments to this Agreement will be posted on our website. Your continued use of the domain name registered to you will constitute your acceptance of this Agreement with any revisions. If you do not agree to any change, you may request that your domain name registration be cancelled or transferred to a different accredited registrar. You agree that such cancellation or request for transfer will be your exclusive remedy if you do not wish to abide by any change to this Agreement, or any other related and/or applicable agreement.

MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR ACCOUNT. In order to change any of your account information with us, you must use the Account Identifier and Password that you selected when you created your account with us when entering in to the Agreement. You agree to safeguard your Account Identifier and Password from any unauthorized use. In no event shall we be liable for the unauthorized use or misuse of your Account Identifier or Password.

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

DOMAIN NAME DISPUTES. You agree that, if the registration or reservation of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the dispute policy adopted by the registry. You agree that in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the applicable policy. If AW is notified that a complaint has been filed with a judicial or administrative body regarding your domain name, AW may, at its sole discretion, suspend your ability to use your domain name or to make modifications to your registration records until (i) AW is directed to do so by the judicial or administrative body, or (ii) AW receives notification by you and the other party contesting your domain that the dispute has been settled. Furthermore, you agree that if you are subject to litigation regarding your registration or use of your domain name, AW may deposit control of your registration record into the registry of the judicial body by supplying a party with a registrar certificate from us.

POLICY. You agree that your registration of the domain name shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer (1) to correct mistakes by us or the registry in registering the name; (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name; and/or (3) to respond to any legal obligations imposed by a competent government authority.

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

LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services(s) provided under this Agreement and any breach of this Agreement is fully set out in the Master Services Agreement.

INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold AW, its contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors and affiliates, ICANN and its respective directors, officers, employees, agents and affiliates harmless from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney’s fees, of third parties arising out of or relating to the registration or use of the domain name registered in your name, whether used by yourself, your Users, licensed to a third party, including without limitation infringement by you or a third party with access to your Account Identifier and Password. You also agree to release, indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the applicable dispute policy. When we are threatened with suit by a third party, we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify us; your failure to provide those assurances may be considered by us to be a breach of your Agreement and may result in the suspension or cancellation of your domain name. This indemnification obligation will survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. The person named as Registrant on the Whois shall be the registered name holder. The person named as administrative contact at the time the controlling account identifier and password are secured shall be deemed the designate of the Registrant with the authority to manage the domain name. You agree that prior to transferring ownership of your domain name to another person (the “Transferee”) you shall require the Transferee to agree, in writing to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement. If the Transferee fails to be bound in a reasonable fashion (as determine by us in our sole discretion) to the terms and conditions in this Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void.

RENEWALS AND FORFEITURE. Domain names are registered for a finite period of time. You will receive reminders immediately prior to the expiration of your registration inviting you to renew your domain name and specifying the amount of time you have to renew your domain name. In the event that you fail to renew your domain name in a timely fashion, your registration will expire.

You will be entitled to a grace period of forty (40) days during which you may re-register the domain name from us. Additional costs for the redemption and re-registration may apply.

If you fail to renew your domain name registration during the grace period, you acknowledge that you have abandoned the domain name.

BREACH. You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this Agreement, any operating rule or policy provided by us, may be considered by us to be a material breach and that we may provide a written notice, describing the breach, to you. If within fifteen (15) calendar days of the date of such notice, you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to us, that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement, then we may delete the registration or reservation of your domain name. Any such breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not act earlier in response to that, or any other breach by you.

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

Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy

Policy Adopted: August 26, 1999
Implementation Documents Approved: October 24, 1999

Notes:

Policy Adopted: August 26, 1999
Implementation Documents Approved: October 24, 1999

Notes:
  1. This policy is now in effect. See www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-schedule.htm for the implementation schedule.
  2. This policy has been adopted by all ICANN-accredited registrars. It has also been adopted by certain managers of country-code top-level domains (e.g., .nu, .tv, .ws).
  3. The policy is between the registrar (or other registration authority in the case of a country-code top-level domain) and its customer (the domain-name holder or registrant). Thus, the policy uses “we” and “our” to refer to the registrar and it uses “you” and “your” to refer to the domain-name holder.

(As Approved by ICANN on October 24, 1999)

  1. Purpose. This Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “Policy”) has been adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (“ICANN”), is incorporated by reference into your Registration Agreement, and sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between you and any party other than us (the registrar) over the registration and use of an Internet domain name registered by you. Proceedings under Paragraph 4 of this Policy will be conducted according to the Rules for Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “Rules of Procedure”), which are available at http://www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/uniform-rules.htm, and the selected administrative-dispute-resolution service provider’s supplemental rules.
  2. Your Representations. By applying to register a domain name, or by asking us to maintain or renew a domain name registration, you hereby represent and warrant to us that (a) the statements that you made in your Registration Agreement are complete and accurate; (b) to your knowledge, the registration of the domain name will not infringe upon or otherwise violate the rights of any third party; (c) you are not registering the domain name for an unlawful purpose; and (d) you will not knowingly use the domain name in violation of any applicable laws or regulations. It is your responsibility to determine whether your domain name registration infringes or violates someone else’s rights.
  3. Cancellations, Transfers, and Changes. We will cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to domain name registrations under the following circumstances:
    1. subject to the provisions of Paragraph 8, our receipt of written or appropriate electronic instructions from you or your authorized agent to take such action;
    2. our receipt of an order from a court or arbitral tribunal, in each case of competent jurisdiction, requiring such action; and/or
    3. our receipt of a decision of an Administrative Panel requiring such action in any administrative proceeding to which you were a party and which was conducted under this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN. (See Paragraph 4(i) and (k) below.)
    We may also cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to a domain name registration in accordance with the terms of your Registration Agreement or other legal requirements.
  4. Mandatory Administrative Proceeding. This Paragraph sets forth the type of disputes for which you are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding. These proceedings will be conducted before one of the administrative-dispute-resolution service providers listed at www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/approved-providers.htm (each, a “Provider”).
    1. Applicable Disputes. You are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding in the event that a third party (a “complainant”) asserts to the applicable Provider, in compliance with the Rules of Procedure, that
      1. your domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights; and
      2. you have no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and
      3. your domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith.
      In the administrative proceeding, the complainant must prove that each of these three elements are present.
    2. Evidence of Registration and Use in Bad Faith. For the purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(iii), the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be present, shall be evidence of the registration and use of a domain name in bad faith:
      1. circumstances indicating that you have registered or you have acquired the domain name primarily for the purpose of selling, renting, or otherwise transferring the domain name registration to the complainant who is the owner of the trademark or service mark or to a competitor of that complainant, for valuable consideration in excess of your documented out-of-pocket costs directly related to the domain name; or
      2. you have registered the domain name in order to prevent the owner of the trademark or service mark from reflecting the mark in a corresponding domain name, provided that you have engaged in a pattern of such conduct; or
      3. you have registered the domain name primarily for the purpose of disrupting the business of a competitor; or
      4. by using the domain name, you have intentionally attempted to attract, for commercial gain, Internet users to your web site or other on-line location, by creating a likelihood of confusion with the complainant’s mark as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your web site or location or of a product or service on your web site or location.
    3. How to Demonstrate Your Rights to and Legitimate Interests in the Domain Name in Responding to a Complaint. When you receive a complaint, you should refer to Paragraph 5 of the Rules of Procedure in determining how your response should be prepared. Any of the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be proved based on its evaluation of all evidence presented, shall demonstrate your rights or legitimate interests to the domain name for purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(ii):
      1. before any notice to you of the dispute, your use of, or demonstrable preparations to use, the domain name or a name corresponding to the domain name in connection with a bona fide offering of goods or services; or
      2. you (as an individual, business, or other organization) have been commonly known by the domain name, even if you have acquired no trademark or service mark rights; or
      3. you are making a legitimate noncommercial or fair use of the domain name, without intent for commercial gain to misleadingly divert consumers or to tarnish the trademark or service mark at issue.
    4. Selection of Provider. The complainant shall select the Provider from among those approved by ICANN by submitting the complaint to that Provider. The selected Provider will administer the proceeding, except in cases of consolidation as described in Paragraph 4(f).
    5. Initiation of Proceeding and Process and Appointment of Administrative Panel. The Rules of Procedure state the process for initiating and conducting a proceeding and for appointing the panel that will decide the dispute (the “Administrative Panel”).
    6. Consolidation. In the event of multiple disputes between you and a complainant, either you or the complainant may petition to consolidate the disputes before a single Administrative Panel. This petition shall be made to the first Administrative Panel appointed to hear a pending dispute between the parties. This Administrative Panel may consolidate before it any or all such disputes in its sole discretion, provided that the disputes being consolidated are governed by this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN.
    7. Fees. All fees charged by a Provider in connection with any dispute before an Administrative Panel pursuant to this Policy shall be paid by the complainant, except in cases where you elect to expand the Administrative Panel from one to three panelists as provided in Paragraph 5(b)(iv) of the Rules of Procedure, in which case all fees will be split evenly by you and the complainant.
    8. Our Involvement in Administrative Proceedings. We do not, and will not, participate in the administration or conduct of any proceeding before an Administrative Panel. In addition, we will not be liable as a result of any decisions rendered by the Administrative Panel.
    9. Remedies. The remedies available to a complainant pursuant to any proceeding before an Administrative Panel shall be limited to requiring the cancellation of your domain name or the transfer of your domain name registration to the complainant.
    10. Notification and Publication. The Provider shall notify us of any decision made by an Administrative Panel with respect to a domain name you have registered with us. All decisions under this Policy will be published in full over the Internet, except when an Administrative Panel determines in an exceptional case to redact portions of its decision.
    11. Availability of Court Proceedings. The mandatory administrative proceeding requirements set forth in Paragraph 4 shall not prevent either you or the complainant from submitting the dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction for independent resolution before such mandatory administrative proceeding is commenced or after such proceeding is concluded. If an Administrative Panel decides that your domain name registration should be canceled or transferred, we will wait ten (10) business days (as observed in the location of our principal office) after we are informed by the applicable Provider of the Administrative Panel’s decision before implementing that decision. We will then implement the decision unless we have received from you during that ten (10) business day period official documentation (such as a copy of a complaint, file-stamped by the clerk of the court) that you have commenced a lawsuit against the complainant in a jurisdiction to which the complainant has submitted under Paragraph 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure. (In general, that jurisdiction is either the location of our principal office or of your address as shown in our Whois database. See Paragraphs 1 and 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure for details.) If we receive such documentation within the ten (10) business day period, we will not implement the Administrative Panel’s decision, and we will take no further action, until we receive (i) evidence satisfactory to us of a resolution between the parties; (ii) evidence satisfactory to us that your lawsuit has been dismissed or withdrawn; or (iii) a copy of an order from such court dismissing your lawsuit or ordering that you do not have the right to continue to use your domain name.
  5. All Other Disputes and Litigation. All other disputes between you and any party other than us regarding your domain name registration that are not brought pursuant to the mandatory administrative proceeding provisions of Paragraph 4 shall be resolved between you and such other party through any court, arbitration or other proceeding that may be available.
  6. Our Involvement in Disputes. We will not participate in any way in any dispute between you and any party other than us regarding the registration and use of your domain name. You shall not name us as a party or otherwise include us in any such proceeding. In the event that we are named as a party in any such proceeding, we reserve the right to raise any and all defenses deemed appropriate, and to take any other action necessary to defend ourselves.
  7. Maintaining the Status Quo. We will not cancel, transfer, activate, deactivate, or otherwise change the status of any domain name registration under this Policy except as provided in Paragraph 3 above.

SSL Service Terms of Use


Supplemental Authentic Web Terms of Use for the DNS Inspector™ Services

These supplemental terms of use (the “Supplemental Terms of Use”) apply to the Authentic Web DNS Inspector™ services (the “DNS Inspector Service”) that is accessible via www.authenticweb.com and, if you are a subscriber to any of Authentic Web’s SaaS services, via your Authentic Web customer portal/account (collectively, the “Site”).  These DNS Inspector Services terms of use are supplemental to the Authentic Web website terms and conditions (www.authenticweb.com/legal/) and, if you have subscribed to any of Authentic Web’s SaaS services, also to the terms and conditions of that agreement between you and Authentic Web.  Therefore, these Supplemental Terms of Use hereby incorporate by reference, all of the aforementioned.  If there is any inconsistency between the Authentic Web website terms and conditions, the Authentic Web’s SaaS services terms and conditions, and these Supplemental Terms of Use, then the latter shall take precedent.  Any reference to all the appliable terms as referenced herein, shall be referred to as “Terms of Use”. 

BY USING THE DNS INSPECTOR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS OF USE; IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT USE THE DNS INSPECTOR SERVICES.

In addition, you expressly consent to Authentic Web, that you and any legal person you represent (collectively referred to as the “Customer”, “you”, “your” or “yours”), without limitation or qualification, to abide by and to be bound by these Terms of Use, and you represent and warrant that you have the legal authority to agree to and accept these Terms of Use on behalf of yourself and any legal person you purport to represent (including your employees, officers, director, or contractors and affiliates of yours and any of the aforementioned of those affiliates). You are responsible for ensuring that all persons (including all of your employees, officers, director, or contractors and affiliates of yours and any of the aforementioned of those affiliates) who access and use the DNS Inspector Service through your account are aware of these Terms of Use and that they comply with them at all times.

Authentic Web reserves the right, to change, modify, and/or remove portions of these Terms of Use, at any time at its sole discretion. It is your responsibility to check these Terms of Use periodically for changes. Your continued use of the DNS Inspector Service following the posting of changes will mean that you accept and agree to the changes.

DNS Inspector Service Description and Limitations 

The DNS Inspector Service is a service of Authentic Web that scans DNS records to inspect how those records are visible and configured on the public DNS.  The purpose of the DNS Inspector Service is to bring visibility to IT and InfoSec teams to inform them of exposure risk that they need to inspect to better manage and mitigate risks identified within the DNS records. 

It is important to note, and you hereby acknowledge and agree that Authentic Web cannot guarantee all probes are accurate at any point in time due to various limitations of the Internet such as name server or web servers failing to respond at the time a probe has been executed. As such all indicators must be reviewed by your own teams to validate the risks identified to take appropriate action.  

Also, the depth of the probe will depend on your configuration and enablement of the DNS Inspector Service within your organization, and thus the DNS Inspector Service may probe only the Apex records of your second level domains (example.com) as opposed to deeper checks into the zone files due to authorization limitations and/or deployment restrictions.
