Registries

.blue

Should you wish to register .blue names with us or transfer .blue names to our management, the Registry Operator, Afilias Limited (“Afilias”), imposes certain conditions. As set out in our Terms and Conditions, by placing an order with us you unconditionally agree to be bound by these conditions as follows:

Registrant:

  1. Will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Afilias and its subcontractors, and the directors, officers, employees, affiliates and agents of each of them, from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable legal fees and expenses, arising out of or relating to the Registrant’s domain name registration. The indemnification obligation survives the termination or expiration of the registration agreement;
  2. will submit to ICANN standards, policies, procedures, and practices as may be adopted or amended from time to time;
  3. will abide by all operational standards, policies, procedures, and practices for the Registry TLD established from time to time by Afilias, including Afilias Registry Policies generally and specifically for .BLUE, in a non-arbitrary manner and applicable to all registrars, including affiliates of Afilias, and consistent with ICANN’s standards, policies, procedures, and practices and the Registry Agreement. Additional or revised Afilias operational standards, policies, procedures, and practices for the Registry TLD shall be effective upon thirty days’ notice by Afilias to Registrar. If there is a discrepancy between the terms required by this Agreement and the terms of the Registrar’s registration agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall supersede those of the Registrar’s registration agreement and public interest commitments (as set forth in Specification 11 to the Registry Agreement, as amended from time to time), community registration policies (as set forth in Specification 12 to the Registry Agreement, as amended from time to time) and Government Advisory Committee (“GAC”) safeguards (as set forth in Exhibit B to this Agreement or otherwise published or provided to Registrar by Afilias from time to time).
  4. consents to the use, copying, distribution, publication, modification and other processing of Registrant’s Personal Data by Afilias and its designees and agents in a manner consistent with the purposes specified pursuant to the .BLUE Registry-Registrar Agreement, including without limitation Subsections 2.6 and 3.2;
  1. submit to proceedings commenced under ICANN’s Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (“UDRP”) and/or Uniform Rapid Suspension (“URS”);
  2. will immediately correct and update the registration information for the Registered Name during the registration term for the Registered Name;
  3. agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of the initial launch of the Registry TLD as published by Afilias from time to time, including without limitation any sunrise period, limited registration period, or land rush period, and the dispute resolution policies and rights protection mechanisms mandated by ICANN or Afilias for the TLD (including without limitation the Trademark Clearinghouse), acknowledges that Afilias has no liability of any kind for any loss or liability resulting from the proceedings and processes relating to the sunrise period, limited registration period, land rush period or other period associated with the initial launch of the Registry TLD, including, without limitation:
    1. the ability or inability of Registrant to obtain a Registered Name during these periods; and
    2. the results of any dispute resolution process regarding a registration;
  4. acknowledges and agrees that Afilias reserves the right to deny, cancel or transfer any registration or transaction, or place any domain name(s) on registry lock, hold or similar status, that it deems necessary, in its discretion:
    1. to protect the integrity and stability of the registry;
    2. to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement, or any dispute resolution process;
    3. to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on the part of Afilias, as well as its affiliates, subsidiaries, officers, directors, and employees;
    4. per the terms of the registration agreement;
    5. for the non-payment of fees by Registrar, including without limitation pursuant to the terms of any Credit Facility (as defined in Section 4.4 of the .BLUE Registry-Registrar Agreement); or
