terms and conditions
"bNamed", "Us" and "We" refer to bNamed, the registrar.
"You", "the user" and "the client" refer to the person making use of the bNamed website and services.
"Licensee" refers to the owner of the domain name registered with bNamed.
If the client and the licensee are not the same person, the client must ensure that the licensee has also read and agreed to these terms and conditions.
bNamed reserves the right to alter these terms and conditions at any time. Changes which bNamed deems of importance to existing users will be communicated to our users via e-mail. If, as a result of such a change, you no longer agree with the terms of this Agreement, you agree that your exclusive remedy is to transfer your domain name registration services to another registrar or request of us that we cancel your domain name registration services.
You attest that you are of legal age to enter into this Agreement.
The consumer does not have the right to revoke a completed purchase. Because your domain name is "made to fit", you have no right to the legal revocation period of 7 days (as specified in Article 80, §4.2° of the Wet betreffende de handelspraktijken, dated July 14, 1991). This means that, once your domain name has been registered, you cannot reconsider your purchase. Between placement of your order and the moment that your domain name is registered, however, you can still cancel your purchase. New registrations, renewals and transfer requests are processed once your payment has been received.
Prices and Credits
bNamed reserves the right to alter the price of a domain name registration or any of its extra services without prior announcement. The applicable rate is the rate in effect at the moment you request your registration or renewal, provided bNamed receives your payment before the due date on the order form.
The registration period (both initial and extension) for a domain name registration is one full year, unless otherwise specified. Extra service(s) you purchase have the same renewal date as the domain name registration to which the service applies. If you add extra service(s) after the beginning of a registration period, you will be billed for the full registration period, provided more than two months are remaining.
A credit is expressed in euros. You can place a credit in your account by making a payment. This credit can then be used to register domain names. The cost of each registration will be deducted from your credit balance. A credit is not refundable. A domain name registered through bNamed remains your property provided you renew its registration at least 10 days prior to the renewal date. A domain name registration which is not renewed on time can be cancelled. In some cases, a domain name can be reactivated after the expiration date. There may be an extra fee for this service.
A renewal is not complete until your payment has been received. This means that not only your request for renewal, but also your payment, must be received at least 10 days prior to the renewal date. As a convenience to you, we will notify you via an e-mail message or via your account when your domain name needs to be extended (unless you explicitly indicated that a domain name would not need to be renewed). You also acknowledge that it is your responsibility to keep your own records and maintain your own reminders regarding when your domain name registration are set to expire. If you don't want to renew a service, make sure it is not set to "auto renew" before its actual renewal. We don't require explicit cancelation of services nor have requiments regarding a notice period.
In the event that a registration or renewal payment proves to be incomplete (because of a charge-back from your credit card company, for example) after the registration or renewal has been executed, you agree and acknowledge that the domain name registration shall be transferred to bNamed, without waiving your payment obligation. Immediately after the expiration of the term of domain name registration services (which means your domain name wasn't extended on time), you acknowledge that we may direct the domain name to an IP address, designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to IP address(es) which host a parking page or a commercial search engine that may display advertisements and you acknowledge that we may either leave your WHOIS information intact or that we may change the contact information in the WHOIS output for the expired domain name.
After the reactivation period, you agree that we may either discontinue the domain name registration services at any time thereafter, that we may transfer the domain name registration services to a third party.
The client agrees to keep all contact information for his account current, reliable, complete and accurate, including: the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available; name of authorized person for contact purposes in the case of an organization, association, or corporation. The client can update such information via our online system.
If the client fails to do so, or fails to respond for over fifteen (15) calendar days to inquiries by Registrar concerning the accuracy of contact details, then this shall constitute a material breach of the contract and bNamed can choose to close his account and deactivate the associated domain name(s).
It is particularly important that your email address is correct; we will use it as our primary means of contacting you. Any Licensee that intends to license use of a domain name to a third party (actual licensee) is nonetheless the Licensee of record and is responsible for providing its own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the Registered Name. A Licensee licensing use of a Registered Name according to this provision shall accept liability for harm caused by wrongful use of the Registered Name, unless it promptly discloses the current contact information provided by the actual licensee and the identity of the actual licensee to a party providing the Licensee reasonable evidence of actionable harm. You agree and consent that we will make available the domain name registration information you provide or that we otherwise maintain to the following parties: ICANN, CoCCA, the registry administrator(s), and to other third parties as ICANN, CoCCA and applicable laws may require or permit (including through web-based and other on-line WHOIS lookup systems), whether during or after the term of your domain name registration services of the domain name. You hereby irrevocably waive any and all claims and causes of action you may have arising from such disclosure or use of such information.
The Licensee hereby appoints Us as Designated Agent authorised to approve a change of licensee or any update on the licensee information on its behalf.
If You (the Client) and the Licensee aren't the same, then you need to agree to and comply with these terms and conditions for resellers. The Client will here be referred to as the Reseller.
- In the event we as a registrar are required (for example by a registry provider) to cooperate with outgoing transfers, then the Reseller is required to offer the same kind of cooperation towards the Licensee.
- The Reseller is required to keep the full contact information for domain names under its management up-to-date and will carry out changes to contact details requested by the Licensee as soon as possible.
- The Reseller may not display any "accreditation" logo's of registries or ICANN, unless it is actually directly accredited itself.
- The Reseller must have an agreement with the Licensee which at least includes the "Additional Registry Requirements" from this agreement
- If inquired about this, the Reseller will identify us as the sponsoring registrar.
- The Reseller will make available a link to ICANN's webpage detailing educational information (http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/registrant-rights/educational) and to the Registrants' Benefits and Responsibilities (http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/raa/approved-with-specs-27jun13-en.htm#registrant)
- The Reseller will state on its website the (maximum) fee it will charge for the recovery of a domain name during the Redemption Grace Period.
