TERMS OF SERVICE FOR PARKING DOMAIN NAMES ON AFTERNIC
By parking one or more domain names with Afternic (each a "Parked Domain Name"), You signify Your electronic acceptance of the Terms Of Service For Parking Domain Names On Afternic (the "Parking Terms of Service") as well as the Afternic Membership Agreement. Please review the following Parking Terms of Service carefully.
To the extent that the Parking Terms of Service conflict with the Afternic Membership Agreement, the conflicting terms here shall supersede the Afternic Membership Agreement but only with respect to Parked Domain Names and only to the extent of such conflict.
BY PARKING DOMAIN NAMES WITH AFTERNIC, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THE PARKING TERMS OF SERVICE. BY CONTINUING TO PARK DOMAIN NAMES WITH AFTERNIC FOLLOWING A CHANGE TO THE PARKING TERMS OF SERVICE, YOU ARE ACCEPTING AND AGREEING TO THE CHANGE.
PROHIBITED DOMAIN NAMES. You will not enroll a domain name for parking with Afternic if You do not have the right to do so or if such enrollment would violate any laws or intellectual property rights of another, including without limitation trademark or service mark rights (each a "Prohibited Domain Name"). Afternic retains the right to unilaterally and without notice cancel the enrollment of any such Prohibited Domain Name and, in Afternic's sole discretion, seek legal recourse against You and any other parties for such enrollment. You will indemnify Afternic against any claims or suits arising from a breach of this section. Additional examples of Prohibited Domain Names that may prompt Afternic to cancel enrollment include:
LICENSE. You hereby grant Afternic a revocable license to display, at Afternic's option, content on Your Parked Domain Name(s) during its enrollment under the Parking Terms of Service. Under this license, Afternic may, in its sole discretion for any reason or for no reason at all, temporarily or permanently stop or modify the content displayed on any Parked Domain Name(s), and You agree that Afternic and its directors, officers, employees, contractors, representatives, agents and affiliates are not liable for loss or damages resulting from such stoppage or modification.
DOMAIN NAME SERVERS. You agree to change the domain name servers of Your Parked Domain(s) to the domain name servers and IP addresses specified by Afternic and/or redirect each Parked Domain Name to the Internet URL specified by Afternic.
ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES.

PAYMENTS. You will be paid monthly your percentage of Afternic's recognized and received gross revenue generated from Your Parked Domain Name(s) minus any expenses from Your Parked Domain Name(s) fifteen (15) days after Afternic has received payment from its advertisers for the preceding month. Afternic typically allows its advertisers thirty (30) calendar days to pay an invoice, and in some cases advertisers may take more time to pay moneys due to Afternic. If the amount due to You under the Parking Terms of Service is less than one hundred United States dollars (USD 100.00), Afternic will defer payment to You until either: (a) You or Afternic terminate enrollment of Your Parked Domain Name(s); and/or (b) the amount due to You under the Parking Terms of Service is at least USD 100.00.
It is Your sole responsibility to withhold any and all local, state, federal, and foreign taxes on payments that You receive pursuant to the Parking Terms of Service, and You agree to indemnify Afternic and any third-party beneficiary to the Parking Terms of Service for any claim or assessment of taxes and any costs or damages relating thereto. Afternic is entitled to offset any refunds You are obligated to provide under the Parking Terms of Service against any payments that would otherwise be due to You. Fraudulent, questionable, or low-quality traffic will not be counted when determining Your payments due under the Parking Terms of Service. This determination is and will be made by Afternic in its sole discretion.
PROHIBITED ACTS. You will not authorize or engage in, or engage or enable a third party, on Your behalf, to do any of the following: (1) queries or clicks on results on any Parked Domain Name(s) generated by misleading or incentivized means, including, but not limited to: queries or clicks required in order to obtain some benefit or to perform another function, such as leaving a webpage or closing a window; (2) You, Your employees, contractors or agents clicking on results on any Parked Domain Name(s) except in the course of normal individual use; (3) offering a user any pecuniary or other in kind inducement to search or click on results on any Parked Domain Name(s); (4) use of any Parked Domain Name(s) for the delivery of unsolicited commercial e-mail messages or any other illegal or dubious purpose or activity; or (5) any kind of traffic manipulation, including but not limited to inflation, deflation, or other adjustment of the traffic or bidded clicks received by any Parked Domain Name(s).
Any search, impression, click or conversion generated in violation of this section shall not be counted for purposes of calculating any compensation owed to You, and may result in the termination of your Afternic Membership Agreement, the forfeiture of payments due to You, and/or the cancellation of the enrollment of particular Parked Domain Name(s).

Afternic Expiring Domain Name Auctions have two phases: the preorder period and the live auction period. During the preorder period, before a name is in live auction, you can place a preorder on a domain name. This preorder ensures that: 1) the name will go to auction unless it is withdrawn, and 2) you will be included in the auction once it goes live. A PreOrder is a bid placed on an expiring domain before its live auction begins. At least one member must preorder the domain in order for it to go to auction. Once the domain auction begins, your preorder bid is legally binding. You can only delete your preorder before the start of the live auction.
For reasons beyond our control a domain name listed during the preorder period may become unavailable. Therefore, Afternic cannot guarantee that a preordered domain name will become available in an auction and has no liability if a domain name for which you have submitted a preorder is withdrawn and is not available at auction, If a name is withdrawn from the Afternic Expiring Domain Names Auction, your preorder will be cancelled. Your credit card is not charged until you actually win and pay for a domain, so you will not incur any fees if a domain name for which you have submitted a preorder is withdrawn by Afternic.
If one or more Afternic customers have preordered a particular domain, Afternic will conduct an auction for the domain, and the domain will subsequently be awarded to the highest bidder in such auction. If you are the winning bidder when the auction ends, you are obligated to pay the amount of your winning bid.
If one or more Afternic customers have preordered a particular domain and in the course of the subsequent auction no bids are placed, Afternic will award the domain to the customer with the highest preorder amount.
If two or more customers preorder a domain for an identical amount, then the customer who submitted his or her preorder first will be the current highest bidder for such domain when the auction begins. If there are no subsequent bids on such domain name in the auction, then the domain will be awarded to the customer who placed his or her preorder first.
Once you confirm your preorder or your bid, if you bid on a name through our "bid now" feature, you have made a legally binding bid on the domain name, and if there are no other bidders or higher bidders you have agreed to purchase the domain.
The start time and end time that is set for an auction is an estimate. Actual start and end times may vary somewhat. An auction for a domain name will be extended by five additional minutes if in the final five minutes before the announced end time a new bid is received for the particular domain name being auctioned.
While Afternic will use reasonable commercial efforts to provide information to you via email regarding your preorder and bids for a domain name, Afternic cannot guarantee that all such emails will be delivered to you and we caution you not to rely solely on email for the status of a domain name. Information that we will endeavor to send you via email will also be posted to your 'My Afternic' account.
Afternic may in our sole discretion require the winning bidder to tender payment to us in a manner of our choosing, including but not limited to credit card, check, or wire transfer. Payments and fees collected by Afternic for the purchase of an auctioned domain name are non-refundable, in whole or in part. In the event of a charge reversal or chargeback by a credit card company or other payment provider, or if we determine in our sole discretion that we are unable or unlikely to collect payment, any associated domain registration will immediately terminate and/or the domain name registration will be transferred to Afternic as the paying entity for the registration. Afternic may, in our sole discretion, award the reclaimed domain name to the next highest bidder in the relevant auction and charge such bidder their highest bid amount, or make the domain name subject to a new auction among bidders determined by Afternic, or otherwise dispose of the name.
