Registrant is prohibited from distributing malware, abusively operating botnets, phishing, piracy, trademark or copyright infringement, fraudulent or deceptive practices, counterfeiting or otherwise engaging in activity contrary to applicable law, and providing (consistent with applicable law and any related procedures) consequences for such activities including suspension of the Registered Name engaged in such activities.

If an indemnified party is threatened by claims or suit of a third party, the indemnified party may seek written assurances from Registrant that it can satisfy and fulfil its indemnification obligations but will not be required to do so in order to rely upon this indemnity. Failure to provide such written assurances in a form satisfactory to the indemnified party is a material breach of our terms and conditions.
  9. The Registry is not a party to our terms and conditions and the Registrar does not act as agent for the Registry. However, the Registry and each of the Registry Affiliates are an intended beneficiary of any rights granted to it by our terms and conditions with the ability to enforce that right directly against Registrant (whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 or otherwise). Registrant and Registrar also acknowledge that the Registry in permitting the registration of a Domain Name and also in allowing a Domain Name to remain registered in the TLD, relies upon the fact that Registrant and the Registrar have agreed to our terms and conditions.
