DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION AGREEMENT
This Brandon Gray Internet Services Inc. d/b/a NameJuice.com, Inc. Domain Name Registration Agreement ("Agreement") is by and between Namejuice.com, Inc. ("NameJuice") a Delaware corporation and You, Your heirs, agents, successors and assigns ("You"), and is made effective as of the date of electronic execution. This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of Your use of NameJuice's Domain Name Registration and represents the entire agreement between You and NameJuice. By participating in this transaction, You acknowledge that You have read, understand and agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions of this Agreement, including our dispute policy and the ICANN Transfer Dispute Resolution Policy along with any new, different or additional terms, conditions or policies, including the Universal Terms of Service which NameJuice may establish from time to time. Such Agreements may be found here.
In addition to transactions entered into by You on Your behalf, You also agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement for transactions entered into on Your behalf by anyone acting as Your Agent, and transactions entered into by anyone who uses the account You've established with NameJuice, whether or not the transactions were in Your behalf. You acknowledge that NameJuice's acceptance of any application made by You for services provided by NameJuice will take place at the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") accredited registrar's offices located in the State of Delaware, USA.
You acknowledge that NameJuice is a registrar bound by an agreement between NameJuice and ICANN. You agree that NameJuice may modify this agreement in order to comply with applicable law and the terms and conditions set forth by the ICANN and/or the Registry Administrator chosen by ICANN, as well as any registration rules or policies that may be published from time to time by NameJuice.
In consideration for the services and products ("service") purchased by You and provided to You by NameJuice, You agree to pay NameJuice at the time service is provided. All personal checks will be delayed fourteen (14) days until the money is credited, which may delay Your usage of the product or service, and any check that bounces will result in a $25 bounced check fee. If You purchase an automatically renewing service or product by personal check, it is Your responsibility to make payment arrangements for each renewal payment. You understand that ICANN requires NameJuice to collect a small registration fee when you purchase your domain name registration. You agree to pay such fees. Payments are non-refundable. If for any reason NameJuice is unable to charge Your Payment Method for the full amount owed NameJuice for the service provided, or if NameJuice is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, You agree that NameJuice may pursue all available remedies in order to obtain payment. You agree that among the remedies NameJuice may pursue in order to effect payment, shall include but will not be limited to, immediate cancellation without notice to You of any domain names registered or renewed on Your behalf. NameJuice reserves the right to charge a reasonable service fee for administrative tasks outside the scope of its regular services. These include, but are not limited to, customer service issues that cannot be handled over email but require personal service, and disputes that require legal services. These charges will be billed to the Payment Method we have on file for You.
Domain Name Renewals
When You register a domain name, You have the option to elect that the domain name be automatically renewed upon reaching the expiration date. Automatic renewal is the default setting, which You must deactivate if You do not want Your domain name(s) to be automatically renewed. Unless You disable the automatic renewal option, NameJuice will automatically renew, for a period equivalent to the length of your original registration, any domain name that is up for renewal and will take payment from the Payment Method You have on file with NameJuice, at NameJuice's then current rates. Thus, if you have chosen to register your domain name for one year, NameJuice will automatically renew it for one year. If you have chosen to register your domain name for two years, NameJuice will automatically renew it for two years, and so on. Domain name renewals will be non refundable. If for any reason NameJuice is not able to take the payment from the Payment Method You have on file, and You fail to respond to our notices, Your domain name registration will expire. It is Your responsibility to keep Your Payment Method information current, which includes the expiration date if you are using a credit card. If You do not elect that the domain name be automatically renewed, You have the responsibility of logging into Your account manager for that domain name and manually implementing the renewal by the expiration date (should You in fact want the domain name to be renewed). In this case, if You fail to manually implement the renewal in a timely fashion the domain name will be cancelled and You will no longer have use of that name. You agree that NameJuice will not be responsible for cancelled domain names that You fail to renew, either automatically or manually. In any case, if You fail to renew Your domain name in a timely fashion, additional charges may apply. If You signed up for domain masking, domain forwarding, or any other similar service, with Your domain registration, these services may be automatically renewed when Your domain registration is up for renewal, and You may incur an additional renewal fee unless You cancel in advance.
If you fail to renew your domain name, you agree that NameJuice may, at its sole discretion, renew your expired domain name on your behalf. If NameJuice decides to renew your expired domain name on your behalf you will have a Renewal Grace Period during which you may reimburse NameJuice for the renewal and keep your domain name. The Renewal Grace Period is currently 12 days but subject to change under the terms of Section 2 of this Agreement. If you do not reimburse NameJuice for the renewal during the Renewal Grace Period your domain name will be placed on Hold and flagged for deletion after which you will have a 30 day redemption period during which you may pay NameJuice a Redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The Redemption fee is currently $50 USD and is subject to change under the terms of Section 2 of this agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the 30 day redemption period NameJuice may, at its sole discretion, delete your domain name or transfer it to another registrant on your behalf.
If your domain is deleted, the Registry also provides a 30 day Redemption Grace Period during which you may pay NameJuice a redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The redemption fee is currently $50 USD and is subject to change under the terms of Section 2 of this agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the Registry's Redemption Grace Period the Registry will release your name and it will become available for registration on a first-come-first-served basis.
2. TERM OF AGREEMENT; MODIFICATIONS

NameJuice will not charge You a fee if NameJuice cancels Your domain name during this period because of fraud.
You agree that NameJuice may modify this agreement from time to time. NameJuice may also discontinue services it provides under this agreement.

Failure by You, for whatever reason, to respond within five (5) business days to any inquiries made by NameJuice to determine the validity of information provided by You, shall also be considered to be a material breach of this agreement. You agree to retain a copy for Your record of the receipt for purchase of Your domain name.

As required by ICANN, this information must also be made publicly available by means of Whois, and that the registry operator may also be required to make this information publicly available by Whois. Both NameJuice and the registry operator may be required to archive this information with a third party escrow service. You hereby consent and give permission for all such requirements and disclosures. Further, You represent and warrant that, if You are providing information about a third party, You have notified the third party of the disclosure and the purpose for the disclosure and You have obtained the third party's consent to such disclosure.

If You cancel Your agreement with NameJuice as a result of the modified Dispute Resolution policy no fees will be refunded to You.

In the event You are purchasing a domain name on behalf of a third party, You agree to inform any customer of Yours, who may be acquiring a domain name through You using NameJuice's registration services, that they are in fact registering their domain name through NameJuice and that NameJuice is an accredited registrar with ICANN.
