    2. AdWeb registers domain names via ICANN (www.icann.org) [.net, .org, .com domains], Afilias (www.afilias.info) [.info domains] and NeuLevel (www.neulevel.biz) [.biz domains] accredited registrars as a supplier of domain names to the Internet community.

Any notice or information relating to the performance of this Agreement which is sent by us using electronic mail to the last electronic mail address notified by you to us, will be deemed (subject to contrary proof) to have been duly served on you unless we are notified that it has not been duly delivered.

  2. .BIZ registrations

    1. Your registration of a .biz domain via the NeuLevel Registry constitutes your agreement to the NeuLevel Registration Restrictions in place at the time of registration. For the purpose of a .biz gTLD registration, the domain name must be intended to be used primarily for "bona fide" business or commercial purposes. "Bone fide" use shall be deemed to cover the intent to use the domain name or any content, software, materials, graphical images or related information, to permit Internet users to access one or more Internet host computers through the Domain Name System to: exchange goods, services, or property of any kind; facilitate the ordinary course of trade or business; or to enhance the exchange of goods, services, information or property of any kind. Registering a domain for the explicit use of: trading, leasing or selling the domain name on for profit; the unsolicited offer to trade, lease or sell a domain name on for profit, shall not constitute a "bona fide" business or commercial use of a domain name.

    2. BIZ Certification - You, the registrant, hereby certify to the best of your knowledge and belief that a domain name registered by you: will, be used primarily for bona fide business or commercial purposes; will be reasonably related to your business or your intended commercial purpose at the time of registration; will NOT be used for personal or non-business related use; Will NOT be used to trade, lease or sell for profit; will NOT be used in all or part of an unsolicited offer to trade, lease or sell a domain name for profit. You also agree as a registrant that you have the authority to enter into and bind you to the registration agreement.

    3. Provision of Registration Data - As a registrant you agree to supply the following information during the registration process: your full name or the full name of an authorized contact in the case where a registrant is an organisation, association or company; the registrant's full postal address; the registrant's email address; the registrant's voice telephone number; the registrant's fax number if available. You likewise agree to advise AdWeb of any changes to this information to keep it current, complete and accurate. You also agree and understand that the afore-mentioned registration information will be publicly available and accessible through the whois service as required by the ICANN Registry agreement.

    4. .biz Domain Name Dispute Policy - By registering a NeuLevel Registry domain name (eg .biz) through AdWeb, you agree to be bound by our current domain name dispute policy. You acknowledge that you have read and understood and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the following documents, as they are amended from time to time, which are hereby incorporated and form an integral part of this agreement: The Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP"); The Start-Up Trademark Opposition Policy ("STOP") located at www.neulevel.com/countdown/stop.html"; the Restrictions Dispute Resolution Criteria and Rules located at www.neulevel.com/countdown/rdrp.html. You agree to use the STOP which sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between a registrant and a third party (expressly excluding NeuLevel Registry and AdWeb), should a dispute arise out of the registration or use of a Neulevel Registry domain name (eg .biz) by you the registrant, that is subject to the Intellectual Property Claim Service. The Intellectual Property Claim Service is a service introduced by the Neulevel Registry to notify a trademark or service mark holder ("claimant") that a second-level domain name has been registered, which infringes upon the climant's trademark or service mark rights. In accordance with the STOP and its associated Rules, a claimant will have the right to challenge domain name registrations, through Independent ICANN acredited dispute resolution providers. The Restrictions Dispute Resolution Policy ("RDRP") sets forth the terms and conditions under which any allegation that a domain name is not being used for business or commercial purposes shall be enforced on a case-by-case and fact specific basis, by an independent ICANN accredited dispute provider. The NeuLevel Registry will not review, monitor, enforce or otherwise verify that any domain name is in violation of the RDRP or UDRP processes.

  3. TERMS OF SERVICE

    1. Unless sooner terminated in accordance with its terms, this Agreement shall be deemed to last two (2) years from the date of registration.

    2. Before the registration period has expired you will (provided that you are not in breach of this Agreement) be given the opportunity to renew your domain name registration with us on an annual basis. If you elect to renew after the registration period has expired AdWeb Names cannot be responsible if any domain names have become unavailable during the period between your registration lapsing and your electing to renew your service with us.

    3. You agree that once a domain name has been registered through the AdWeb Names service that you will not transfer the domain to another registrar during the first sixty (60) days of the registration term.
