3.  DOMAIN NAME REGISTRATION

3.a  We make no representation that the domain name you wish to register is capable of being registered by or for you or that it will be registered in your name. You should therefore not assume registration of your requested domain name(s) until you have been notified that it has or they have been registered. Any action taken by you before such notification is at your risk;

3.b  The registration and use of your domain name is subject to the terms and conditions of use applied by the relevant naming authority; you shall ensure that you are aware of those terms and conditions and that you comply with them.

Any administration charge paid by you to us shall be non-refundable notwithstanding refusal by the naming authority to register your desired name;

3.c  We shall have no liability in respect of the use by you of any domain name; any dispute between you and any other person must be resolved between the parties concerned in such dispute. If any such dispute arises, we shall be entitled, at our discretion and without giving any reason, to withhold, suspend or cancel the domain name. We shall also be entitled to make representations to the relevant naming authority but will not be obliged to take part in any such dispute;

3.d  Domain name hosting and transfer request for DNS records must be in writing with the authorised signature of the domain owner. There is no charge for the transfer, however a charge may be made for administration. Domain name transfers will not be completed until all outstanding amounts have been paid by the customer in full, until this time domain names remain the property of the Company;


4.  WEB SITE HOSTING and E-MAIL

4.l   Unlimited use policy. High bandwidth usage: Group-Web offers an unlimited use policy by maintaining very large ratios of bandwidth per customer. In rare cases, Group-Web may find a customer to be using server resources to such an extent that he or she may jeopardize server performance and resources for other customers. In such instances, Group-Web reserves the right to impose the High Resource User Policy for the consideration of all customers.

4.m  High resource user policy.  Resources are defined as bandwidth and/or processor utilization.
Group-Web may implement the following policy at its sole discretion:

When a website is found to be monopolising the resources available Group-Web reserves the right to suspend that site immediately. This policy is only implemented in extreme circumstances and is intended to prevent the misuse of our servers, and those of our service providers. We reserve the right to cancel your account at any time without notice.
