Domain Deletion and Auto Renew Policy
Domain names are registered for fixed periods that are subject to renewal. If a customer has selected our “auto-renew” feature or has not opted out of "auto-renew" for a domain name registration, we will attempt to automatically renew the domain name registration approximately sixty (60) to ninety (90) days prior to the domain name registration expiration date (subject to the terms related to the “auto-renew” feature found in our Service Agreement and on our web site). If a Stork Registry reseller has selected the “auto-renew” feature on behalf of their customer(s), we will attempt to automatically renew the domain name approximately 15 days prior to the expiration date. If "auto-renew" is turned on past the normal renewal period, that product will be renewed within the next 24 hours. If a customer has not selected our “auto-renew” feature for a domain name registration, we send several communications to customers and/or the agents acting on their behalf to alert them that their domain name registration services will expire on a certain date. If a customer does not renew the domain name registration by the expiration date, the domain name registration is subject to deletion at any time after that. In an effort to help our customers avoid unintentional deletion of their domain name registration(s), we may, but are not obligated to, provide our customers with a “grace period” after their domain name registration services expiration date(s) (a “grace period” begins on the day after the date of expiration). We currently endeavor to provide a grace period that extends 30 days past the expiration date, to allow the renewal of domain name registration services. During this period a customer can renew a domain name registration; however, a grace period is not guaranteed and can change or be eliminated at any time without notice. Consequently, every customer who desires to renew his or her domain name registration services should do so in advance of the expiration date to avoid any unintended domain name deletion.
If an expired domain name registration is not renewed during any grace period provided by us, pursuant to our Service Agreement, rather than delete the domain name registration, we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the domain name registration to Stork Registry or to a third party on the customer’s behalf. This renewal and transfer process is called a “Direct Transfer.” We will not attempt to complete a Direct Transfer of a domain name registration after expiration if the customer to whom the domain name is registered has notified us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org stating that he or she does not want us to proceed with such a transfer. In this case, the domain name registration will be deleted. A customer’s failure to notify us that they do not want us to complete a Direct Transfer constitutes that customer’s consent to the Direct Transfer.
If an expired domain name registration is not renewed as outlined above, absent extenuating circumstances, we will delete the domain name registration. Registry Operators may provide registrars with the ability to “redeem” a deleted domain name registration for a customer, and we, in turn, may (but are not obligated to) provide customers with an ability to redeem a particular domain name registration. Such a Redemption Grace Period (RGP) is not guaranteed and customers should renew their domain name registration services in advance of the domain name registration expiration date(s) to avoid deletion of domain name registration services. Currently, some Registry Operators provide an RGP for 30 days from the date of deletion. If we decide to provide the redemption service to a customer, we charge an additional fee to redeem and renew a domain name registration during the RGP. If the domain name registration is not redeemed by the expiration of the RGP, it is then placed on “Pending Delete” status for five additional days, after which it is deleted and the domain name character string is then once again available for registration.
In the event that a domain name registration is the subject of a Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) proceeding and expires or is deleted during the course of the dispute, the party that filed the UDRP proceeding has the option to renew or restore the domain name registration under the same commercial terms as the original customer. If the case ultimately is terminated or the arbitrator finds against the filing party, the name will be deleted within 45 days.
Domain Transfer Policy
To transfer a domain name registration to another registrar from Stork Registry, the customer seeking to transfer the domain name registration must initiate the transfer request with the gaining registrar. The customer’s current WHOIS Administrative Contact of record listed in Stork Registry’s WHOIS account must approve the transfer by providing express authorization to the gaining registrar in a valid Standardized Form of Authorization.
Stork Registry will then send an e-mail to the Primary Contact (Registrant) of the domain name(s) indicating that it has received a transfer request from the gaining registrar for such domain name(s). The Primary Contact (Registrant) may choose to approve or deny the transfer. If the Primary Contact (Registrant) does not respond to the authorization, the transfer will automatically complete in five days from the date the transfer request was received. Additionally, Stork Registry may deny a transfer request in certain circumstances approved of in the Internet Corporation of Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) Policy on Transfer of Registrations between Registrars.
Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy
(As Approved by ICANN on October 24, 1999)
1. This policy is now in effect. See www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-schedule.htm for the implementation schedule.
2. This policy has been adopted by all ICANN-accredited registrars. It has also been adopted by certain managers of country-code top-level domains (e.g., .nu, .tv, .ws).
3. The policy is between the registrar (or other registration authority in the case of a country-code top-level domain) and its customer (the domain-name holder or registrant). Thus, the policy uses "we" and "our" to refer to the registrar and it uses "you" and "your" to refer to the domain-name holder.
1. Purpose. This Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "Policy") has been adopted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"), is incorporated by reference into your Registration Agreement, and sets forth the terms and conditions in connection with a dispute between you and any party other than us (the registrar) over the registration and use of an Internet domain name registered by you. Proceedings under Paragraph 4 of this Policy will be conducted according to the Rules for Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the "Rules of Procedure"), which are available at http://www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/uniform-rules.htm, and the selected administrative-dispute-resolution service provider's supplemental rules.
2. Your Representations. By applying to register a domain name, or by asking us to maintain or renew a domain name registration, you hereby represent and warrant to us that (a) the statements that you made in your Registration Agreement are complete and accurate; (b) to your knowledge, the registration of the domain name will not infringe upon or otherwise violate the rights of any third party; (c) you are not registering the domain name for an unlawful purpose; and (d) you will not knowingly use the domain name in violation of any applicable laws or regulations. It is your responsibility to determine whether your domain name registration infringes or violates someone else's rights.
3. Cancellations, Transfers, and Changes. We will cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to domain name registrations under the following circumstances:
a. subject to the provisions of Paragraph 8, our receipt of written or appropriate electronic instructions from you or your authorized agent to take such action;
b. our receipt of an order from a court or arbitral tribunal, in each case of competent jurisdiction, requiring such action; and/or
c. our receipt of a decision of an Administrative Panel requiring such action in any administrative proceeding to which you were a party and which was conducted under this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN. (See Paragraph 4(i) and (k) below.)
We may also cancel, transfer or otherwise make changes to a domain name registration in accordance with the terms of your Registration Agreement or other legal requirements.
4. Mandatory Administrative Proceeding.
This Paragraph sets forth the type of disputes for which you are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding. These proceedings will be conducted before one of the administrative-dispute-resolution service providers listed at www.icann.org/en/dndr/udrp/approved-providers.htm (each, a "Provider").
a. Applicable Disputes. You are required to submit to a mandatory administrative proceeding in the event that a third party (a "complainant") asserts to the applicable Provider, in compliance with the Rules of Procedure, that
(i) your domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which the complainant has rights; and
(ii) you have no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and
(iii) your domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith.
In the administrative proceeding, the complainant must prove that each of these three elements are present.
b. Evidence of Registration and Use in Bad Faith. For the purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(iii), the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be present, shall be evidence of the registration and use of a domain name in bad faith:
(i) circumstances indicating that you have registered or you have acquired the domain name primarily for the purpose of selling, renting, or otherwise transferring the domain name registration to the complainant who is the owner of the trademark or service mark or to a competitor of that complainant, for valuable consideration in excess of your documented out-of-pocket costs directly related to the domain name; or
(ii) you have registered the domain name in order to prevent the owner of the trademark or service mark from reflecting the mark in a corresponding domain name, provided that you have engaged in a pattern of such conduct; or
(iii) you have registered the domain name primarily for the purpose of disrupting the business of a competitor; or
(iv) by using the domain name, you have intentionally attempted to attract, for commercial gain, Internet users to your web site or other on-line location, by creating a likelihood of confusion with the complainant's mark as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of your web site or location or of a product or service on your web site or location.
c. How to Demonstrate Your Rights to and Legitimate Interests in the Domain Name in Responding to a Complaint. When you receive a complaint, you should refer to Paragraph 5 of the Rules of Procedure in determining how your response should be prepared. Any of the following circumstances, in particular but without limitation, if found by the Panel to be proved based on its evaluation of all evidence presented, shall demonstrate your rights or legitimate interests to the domain name for purposes of Paragraph 4(a)(ii):
(i) before any notice to you of the dispute, your use of, or demonstrable preparations to use, the domain name or a name corresponding to the domain name in connection with a bona fide offering of goods or services; or
(ii) you (as an individual, business, or other organization) have been commonly known by the domain name, even if you have acquired no trademark or service mark rights; or
(iii) you are making a legitimate noncommercial or fair use of the domain name, without intent for commercial gain to misleadingly divert consumers or to tarnish the trademark or service mark at issue.
d. Selection of Provider. The complainant shall select the Provider from among those approved by ICANN by submitting the complaint to that Provider. The selected Provider will administer the proceeding, except in cases of consolidation as described in Paragraph 4(f).
e. Initiation of Proceeding and Process and Appointment of Administrative Panel. The Rules of Procedure state the process for initiating and conducting a proceeding and for appointing the panel that will decide the dispute (the "Administrative Panel").
f. Consolidation. In the event of multiple disputes between you and a complainant, either you or the complainant may petition to consolidate the disputes before a single Administrative Panel. This petition shall be made to the first Administrative Panel appointed to hear a pending dispute between the parties. This Administrative Panel may consolidate before it any or all such disputes in its sole discretion, provided that the disputes being consolidated are governed by this Policy or a later version of this Policy adopted by ICANN.
g. Fees. All fees charged by a Provider in connection with any dispute before an Administrative Panel pursuant to this Policy shall be paid by the complainant, except in cases where you elect to expand the Administrative Panel from one to three panelists as provided in Paragraph 5(b)(iv) of the Rules of Procedure, in which case all fees will be split evenly by you and the complainant.
h. Our Involvement in Administrative Proceedings. We do not, and will not, participate in the administration or conduct of any proceeding before an Administrative Panel. In addition, we will not be liable as a result of any decisions rendered by the Administrative Panel.
i. Remedies. The remedies available to a complainant pursuant to any proceeding before an Administrative Panel shall be limited to requiring the cancellation of your domain name or the transfer of your domain name registration to the complainant.
j. Notification and Publication. The Provider shall notify us of any decision made by an Administrative Panel with respect to a domain name you have registered with us. All decisions under this Policy will be published in full over the Internet, except when an Administrative Panel determines in an exceptional case to redact portions of its decision.
k. Availability of Court Proceedings. The mandatory administrative proceeding requirements set forth in Paragraph 4 shall not prevent either you or the complainant from submitting the dispute to a court of competent jurisdiction for independent resolution before such mandatory administrative proceeding is commenced or after such proceeding is concluded. If an Administrative Panel decides that your domain name registration should be canceled or transferred, we will wait ten (10) business days (as observed in the location of our principal office) after we are informed by the applicable Provider of the Administrative Panel's decision before implementing that decision. We will then implement the decision unless we have received from you during that ten (10) business day period official documentation (such as a copy of a complaint, file-stamped by the clerk of the court) that you have commenced a lawsuit against the complainant in a jurisdiction to which the complainant has submitted under Paragraph 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure. (In general, that jurisdiction is either the location of our principal office or of your address as shown in our Whois database. See Paragraphs 1 and 3(b)(xiii) of the Rules of Procedure for details.) If we receive such documentation within the ten (10) business day period, we will not implement the Administrative Panel's decision, and we will take no further action, until we receive (i) evidence satisfactory to us of a resolution between the parties; (ii) evidence satisfactory to us that your lawsuit has been dismissed or withdrawn; or (iii) a copy of an order from such court dismissing your lawsuit or ordering that you do not have the right to continue to use your domain name.
5. All Other Disputes and Litigation. All other disputes between you and any party other than us regarding your domain name registration that are not brought pursuant to the mandatory administrative proceeding provisions of Paragraph 4 shall be resolved between you and such other party through any court, arbitration or other proceeding that may be available.
6. Our Involvement in Disputes. We will not participate in any way in any dispute between you and any party other than us regarding the registration and use of your domain name. You shall not name us as a party or otherwise include us in any such proceeding. In the event that we are named as a party in any such proceeding, we reserve the right to raise any and all defenses deemed appropriate, and to take any other action necessary to defend ourselves.
7. Maintaining the Status Quo. We will not cancel, transfer, activate, deactivate, or otherwise change the status of any domain name registration under this Policy except as provided in Paragraph 3 above.
8. Transfers During a Dispute.
a. Transfers of a Domain Name to a New Holder. You may not transfer your domain name registration to another holder (i) during a pending administrative proceeding brought pursuant to Paragraph 4 or for a period of fifteen (15) business days (as observed in the location of our principal place of business) after such proceeding is concluded; or (ii) during a pending court proceeding or arbitration commenced regarding your domain name unless the party to whom the domain name registration is being transferred agrees, in writing, to be bound by the decision of the court or arbitrator. We reserve the right to cancel any transfer of a domain name registration to another holder that is made in violation of this subparagraph.
b. Changing Registrars. You may not transfer your domain name registration to another registrar during a pending administrative proceeding brought pursuant to Paragraph 4 or for a period of fifteen (15) business days (as observed in the location of our principal place of business) after such proceeding is concluded. You may transfer administration of your domain name registration to another registrar during a pending court action or arbitration, provided that the domain name you have registered with us shall continue to be subject to the proceedings commenced against you in accordance with the terms of this Policy. In the event that you transfer a domain name registration to us during the pendency of a court action or arbitration, such dispute shall remain subject to the domain name dispute policy of the registrar from which the domain name registration was transferred.
9. Policy Modifications. We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time with the permission of ICANN. We will post our revised Policy at http://www.storkregistry.com/policy.php"> at least thirty (30) calendar days before it becomes effective. Unless this Policy has already been invoked by the submission of a complaint to a Provider, in which event the version of the Policy in effect at the time it was invoked will apply to you until the dispute is over, all such changes will be binding upon you with respect to any domain name registration dispute, whether the dispute arose before, on or after the effective date of our change. In the event that you object to a change in this Policy, your sole remedy is to cancel your domain name registration with us, provided that you will not be entitled to a refund of any fees you paid to us. The revised Policy will apply to you until you cancel your domain name registration.

Any acceptance of your application(s) for our service(s) and the performance of our service(s) will occur at our offices in 2540 Matheson Blvd E, Mississauga, ON L4W 4Z2, Canada, the location of our principal place of business. You agree that each person listed in your account information as being associated with your account for any service(s) provided to you is your agent with full authority to act on your behalf for such services in accordance with the permissions granted, including but not limited to the authorization to terminate, transfer (where permitted by this Agreement), or to modify or purchase additional service(s).

3. VARIOUS SERVICES. The terms of this Agreement are applicable to any and all of the Stork's service(s) you have chosen, including any additional services you may choose in the future which may be offered by Stork from time to time. NOTICE REGARDING BUNDLED SERVICES: If you purchase Stork services that are sold together as a “bundled” package (e.g., you select a web site package that includes both a domain name and hosting services, as opposed to your purchasing such services separately) ("Bundled Services"), termination of any part of the service will result in termination of all services provided as part of the bundled package.
4. FEES AND PAYMENT. As consideration for the services you have selected, you agree to pay Stork the applicable service(s) fees set forth on our Web site at the time of your selection. All fees are due immediately and are non-refundable.

We reserve the right to change our prices and will post prices on our website.
5. TERM OF SERVICE. Unless otherwise specified, each StorkRegistry.com service is for a one-year initial term and is automatically renewed thereafter for successive one-year terms. A domain registered by you will be billed annually, until you choose to cancel the domain. Domain renewals, recovery or other services with us are subject to our then current Terms and Conditions as well as payment of all applicable service fees at the time of the recurring charge. Domain name renewals and recovery are subject to the registry's acceptance of your domain name registration.
Should you select to pay upfront for a multiple year term, each year on the anniversary of the registration StorkRegistry.com will pay on your behalf to the registry the required registry fees until the term you have purchased expires or StorkRegistry.com is no longer your registrar. Should the registry raise its fees, StorkRegistry.com will inform you and collect the difference for the term remaining.
In addition to other termination provisions contained in this Agreement, if you purchase Bundled Services, any termination relating to such bundle will terminate all Stork services included in such bundle. For instance, any domain name registered with or maintained by Stork under this Agreement will be canceled and may thereafter be available for registration by another party. Upon the effective date of termination, Stork will no longer provide the bundled services to you, any leases granted to you shall immediately terminate, and you will cease using such services immediately; provided, however, that Stork may, in its sole discretion and subject to your agreeing to be bound by the applicable agreement(s) and to pay the applicable fees for such services, allow you to convert certain services included in the bundled services to stand alone services.

You acknowledge that LogicBoxes may amend this Agreement at any time upon posting the amended terms on its website, and that any new, different or additional features changing the services provided by LogicBoxes will automatically be subject to this Agreement. If You do not agree to be bound by, or if You object to, the terms and conditions of this Agreement and any amendments hereto, do not use or access LogicBoxes’s services. Continued use of LogicBoxes's services and its website after any such changes to this Agreement have been posted, constitutes Your acceptance of those changes.
When the Privacy service is enabled, a WHOIS query will show our given information (please note that even with the Privacy service enabled, your registrant name, administrative contact, technical contact and if applicable, billing contact will still be visible).
2. Good Faith. By enabling the Privacy service, you agree to use the domain name and associated websites in good faith. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you will not use the Privacy services for purposes of engaging in, participating in, sponsoring or hiding your involvement in illegal or morally objectionable activities, including but not limited to, activities which are designed, intended to or otherwise: (a) appeal primarily to prurient interests; (b) defame, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, or harass; (c) violate state or federal laws of Canada and/or foreign territories; (d) involve hate crimes, terrorism or child pornography; (e) are tortious, vulgar, obscene, invasive of a third party's privacy, race, ethnicity, or are otherwise objectionable; (f) impersonate the identity of a third party; (g) harm minors in any way; or (h) relate to or transmit viruses, Trojan Horses, access codes, backdoors, worms, timebombs or any other code, routine, mechanism, device or item that corrupts, damages, impairs, interferes with, intercepts or misappropriates any software, hardware, firmware, network, system, data or personally identifiable information.

3. Term of Service. Unless otherwise specified, and subject to earlier termination as contemplated by Section 2 and Section 4, the Privacy service will initially be activated for a one-year term. At the end of such one-year term, and at the end of each subsequent one-year term thereafter, the Privacy service will automatically renew for consecutive one-year terms at then current rates, unless you request cancellation of the Privacy service by notifying Stork at least thirty (30) days before the end of the then-current term. You acknowledge and agree that in connection with any automatic renewal Stork will attempt to charge the credit card you have on file at the then current rates, and you waive any requirement to obtain your ongoing affirmative consent to any such automatic renewal. It is your responsibility to keep your credit card information current and accurate, including the expiration date. If Stork is unable to collect renewal or other fees, you agree that Stork may contact you, but is not obliged to do so, and you agree that Stork may suspend or terminate the Privacy service as a result of inability to obtain payment. FEES WILL NOT BE PRO RATED OR OTHERWISE REFUNDED IF THE PRIVACY SERVICE IS CANCELLED OR OTHERWISE TERMINATED BEFORE THE END OF THE THEN-CURRENT TERM. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you understand that the Privacy services term may be different than the registration term of a domain which is associated with the Privacy services. If a domain expires and is deleted before the end of the term of the associated Privacy services, then the Privacy services associated with the domain will end when the domain is deleted and you understand that there will be no refund for any resulting unused portion of a Privacy services term.
4. Disclosure and Termination. You agree that in the event:
(a) Stork or its parent, subsidiary or affiliated companies, or their respective owners, directors, officers, shareholders, employees, contractors, agents, partners, affiliates, successors or assigns is threatened, receives a complaint, notice of action or any demand from a third party with respect to a domain name and/or associated websites for which the Privacy service is activated, or
(b) there is alleged infringement, abuse or misuse of, or activity of any nature that could result in loss or legal liability (civil or criminal) to Stork or its parent, subsidiary or affiliated companies, or their respective owners, directors, officers, shareholders, employees, contractors, agents, partners, affiliates, successors or assigns with respect to a domain name and/or associated websites for which the Privacy service is activated, or
(c) you are not, in Stork's opinion, using the Privacy service in good faith as required by Section 2,
you have provided us with your prior consent to disable the Privacy service and to disclose your technical and administrative contact information to any complainant or third party requesting such information and to make such information publicly available for a WHOIS query. You agree that no further prior authorization or approval from you or your agent is necessary for such disclosure. You understand and agree that StorkRegistry.com is under no obligation to provide the Privacy service to you, and that StorkRegistry.com may, in its sole discretion, for any reason or no reason, disable the Privacy service without notice or warning, either with respect to a specific domain name(s) or with respect to all domain names in your account (even if “customer” level Privacy service has been selected). YOU WILL NOT BE ENTITLED TO ANY FEE REFUND AS A RESULT OF DISCLOSURE OF YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE OR TECHNICAL CONTACT INFORMATION AND/OR TERMINATION OF THE PRIVACY SERVICE AS CONTEMPLATED BY SECTION 3 OR 4 HEREOF.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Stork shall be entitled to suspend access or service to your account in order to disable the Privacy service.
5. Limitation of Liability. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, Stork, ITS PARENT, SUBSIDIARY AND AFFILIATED COMPANIES, AND THEIR RESPECTIVE OWNERS, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, SHAREHOLDERS, EMPLOYEES, CONTRACTORS, AGENTS, PARTNERS, AFFILIATES, SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM YOUR USE OF THE PRIVACY SERVICE, OR THE DISCLOSURE OF YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE OR TECHNICAL CONTACT INFORMATION AND/OR TERMINATION OF THE PRIVACY SERVICE AS CONTEMPLATED BY SECTION 3 OR 4 HEREOF. The foregoing limitation of liability is in addition to any other limitations of liability set forth in this Agreement.
6. Indemnity, etc. You understand and agree that the release, indemnity and other obligations in favour of Stork and certain other persons in Section 14 of the Main Terms and Conditions apply to your use of the Privacy service.

We rely on this information to carry out our service for you and comply with the requirements of registries of domain names and to send you important information and notices regarding your account and our services. Any failure by you to provide or update such information or to respond to our request is a material breach of this Agreement.
8. Forwarded Information. You agree that Stork may review communications sent to the email address associated with your Privacy service enabled domain. For communications received via certified or traceable courier mail (such as UPS or FedEx), or postal mail which does not appear to be unsolicited commercial mail, Stork will make commercially reasonable efforts to either (a) forward such communication to you or (b) attempt to communicate to you a scanned copy of a page of the communication to ascertain whether you wish to receive the full communication. You specifically acknowledge that Stork may elect to not forward to you (nor to otherwise communicate with you) regarding postal mail or email, fax, postal mail or telephone communications which appear to be unsolicited communications (e.g., communications which offer or advertise the sale of goods or services or which solicit charitable contributions). You authorize Stork to either discard all such communications or return all such communications to sender unopened. You agree to waive any and all claims arising from your failure to receive communications directed to your domain name but not forwarded to you by Stork, including failures which arise from Stork's mistake in judging whether a communication appears to be an unsolicited communication. You agree that you will reimburse Stork for any reasonable fees for administrative tasks outside the scope of regular services incurred as a result of your use of the Privacy service. These may include, but are not limited to, Customer Support issues that require personal service and disputes that require legal services.
9. In the event this Agreement or Schedule expires or terminates, Sections 4, 5, 6 and 8 of this Schedule shall survive such expiration or termination.
Schedule G: Terms and Conditions Applicable to the High Security Service
1. StorkRegistry.com has introduced a "High Security" service to address issues of domain name security. The High Security service is provided to you as a courtesy and helps to prevent domains you have registered from being unintentionally transferred, deleted, or expired. Unless you inform Stork that you do not want this service, you will be automatically enrolled for StorkRegistry.com's High Security service. The High Security service includes "Registrar Lock" and "Auto-renewal", described below. StorkRegistry.com may introduce additional security features in the future.
2. Registrar Lock
When High Security is enabled for a domain name, you are preventing registrars, other than StorkRegistry.com, to transfer or modify your domain name. If you choose to transfer a domain to another registrar, you must log into your account and remove the lock prior to our receipt of the transfer request from the gaining registrar. This service is being provided as a convenience to you but in no way guarantees that a domain name will not be maliciously transferred to another registrar or registrant, due to technical and policy weaknesses in the worldwide domain name system or by StorkRegistry.com's error. StorkRegistry.com will, however, use commercially reasonable efforts in stopping any such transfer without your express consent. Please note that not all registries support the concept of a Registrar Lock in which case, High Security will not include a Registrar Lock.
3.1 When High Security is enabled for a domain, StorkRegistry.com will attempt to renew the registration of a domain approximately 75 days prior to its expiry date. The renewal is for a one-year term and extends the existing registration period. For example, if the expiry date for your domain name is September 1, 2003, the new expiry date will be September 1, 2004. When High Security is enabled, you have authorized and consented to StorkRegistry.com to automatically charge your credit card the then-current retail price for such one-year renewal. The automatic renewal service is provided as a convenience for you but in no way guarantees a desired renewal. It is your obligation to affirmatively renew any desired domain. In addition, StorkRegistry.com has no obligation to attempt to renew your domain if your most recent credit card on file with us for your account is not accepted according to StorkRegistry.com's payment processing systems. After your domains have been successfully renewed, you will receive a confirmation email. Note: The Auto-renewal process requires a valid credit card to be kept on file in your account. You will be notified if the Auto-renewal transaction is declined for any reason.
3.2 If you do not choose to have the High Security service as part of your Subscription Service, you must contact Customer Support by logging into your StorkRegistry.com account at http://www.StorkRegistry.com and disabling the High Security feature on those domains you choose not to protect. Your failure to expressly opt out of the High Security service constitutes your authorization and consent for StorkRegistry.com to enable Registrar-Lock and Auto-renewal, and attempt to automatically charge your credit card the then-current retail price for such renewal.
3.3 You are solely responsible for the credit card and billing contact information you provide to StorkRegistry.com and you acknowledge and agree that you will promptly inform StorkRegistry.com of any changes thereto (e.g., change of expiration date or account number).
3.4 You are solely responsible for ensuring the security of your domains. StorkRegistry.com CORP. WILL HAVE NO LIABILITY TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY IN CONNECTION WITH THE HIGH SECURITY FEATURES, INCLUDING ATTEMPTED OR SUCCESSFUL TRANSFERS OF DOMAINS EVEN THOUGH THE HIGH SECURITY SERVICE IN ENABLED, OR RENEWAL OR ANY ATTEMPT TO RENEW DOMAINS AS DESCRIBED HEREIN, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY FAILURE OR ERRORS IN TRANSFERS, RENEWING OR ATTEMPTING TO RENEW THE DOMAINS. The foregoing limitation of liability is in addition to any other limitations of liability set forth in this Agreement.
3.5 You understand and agree that the release, indemnity and other obligations in favour of Stork and certain other persons in Section 14 of the Main Terms and Conditions apply to your use of the High Security feature.
