This Rental Agreement ("Agreement") sets forth the terms and conditions for use of rented domain name and related services (collectively "Services"). By using the Service(s), you agree to all terms and conditions of this Agreement, the UDRP (defined below) and the rules, policies, or agreements published in association with specific of the Service(s) and/or which may be enforced by ICANN, the registries, and governments.

This Agreement may change over time. If, as a result of such a change, you no longer agree with the terms of this Agreement, you agree that your exclusive remedy is to not renew the rental or request of us that we cancel your rental services. If you continue to use the Services following a change in this Agreement and/or the Services, your continued use of the Services indicates your consent to the changes. Any such revision or change will be binding and effective within 30 days of when the revised Agreement or change to the Service(s) is posted to the website, or 15 days after you view the revised Agreement or 15 days after notification is sent. You agree to review this Agreement every six months to make yourself aware of any such revisions.

We may reject your domain name rental or elect to discontinue providing Service(s) to you for any reason within 30 days of a Service initiation or a Service renewal. Outside of this period, we may terminate or suspend the Service(s) at any time for cause, which, without limitation, includes registration of prohibited domain name(s), abuse of the Services, payment irregularities, serious allegations of illegal conduct, or if your use of the Services involves us in a violation of any Internet Service Provider's ("ISP's") acceptable use policies, including the transmission of unsolicited bulk email. You agree that if we terminate or suspend the Services provided to you under this Agreement, that we may then, at our option, make either ourselves or a third party the beneficiary of Services which are substantially similar to those which were previously providing to you and that any reference in this Agreement to termination or suspension of the Services to you includes this option. If we have grounds to terminate or suspend Service(s) with respect to one domain name or in relation to other Service(s) provided through your account, we may terminate or suspend all Service(s) provided through your account, including Service(s) to other domain names. No fee refund will be made when there is a suspension or termination of Service(s) for cause. At any time and for any reason, we may terminate the Services 30 days after we send notice of termination via mail or email, at our option. If we terminate Services for a reason other than cause, we will attempt to refund your fees. You further acknowledge and agree that your rental of a domain name is subject to suspension, cancellation or transfer.
Domain name rentals are only for limited terms, terms which end on the expiration date. You agree that we and your Primary Service Provider are not liable or responsible in any way for any errors, omissions or any other actions by the registry administrator arising out of or related to a request to register, renew, modify the settings for, or transfer of a domain name registration (our limitation of liability is explained further, below). You further agree that domain name registration is a service, that domain name registrations do not exist independently from services provided pursuant to this or a similar registration agreement with a registrar, and that domain name registration services do not create a property interest.

You further agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless us, your Primary Service Provider, and applicable registry administrator(s) and all such parties' directors, officers, employees, and agents from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses (including any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages and reasonable legal fees and expenses) arising out of, or related to, the domain name registration services you are obtaining from us.

Without limitation, the following are not included in the Services: We cannot and do not check to see whether the domain name(s) you rent, or the use you make of the domain name(s), or other of the Service(s), infringes legal rights of others. It is your responsibility to know whether or not the domain name(s) you select or use infringes legal rights of others. We might be ordered by a court to cancel, modify, or transfer your domain name; it is your responsibility to provide accurate contact and to communicate with litigants, potential litigants, and governmental authorities. It is not our responsibility to forward court orders or other communications to you. We will comply with court orders unless you contact us to contest the order.
If we are sued or threatened with lawsuit in connection with Service(s) provided to you, you shall indemnify us and hold us harmless from the claims and expenses (including attorney's fees and court costs). Under such circumstances, you agree that you will, upon demand, obtain a performance bond with a reputable bonding company or, if you are unable to obtain a performance bond, that you will deposit money with us to pay for our reasonably anticipated expenses in relation to the matter for the coming year. Such deposit will be drawn down as expenses are incurred. We shall not be obliged to extend you any credit in relation to such expenses and we may terminate the Services for a failure to make or renew such a deposit. We will return any unused deposit upon the later of one year from deposit or the conclusion of the matter.

Domain Rental includes directing the rented domain to your existing website. Domain Rental does not include any other service. For a $20 fee (which can be waived at the discretion of Long Island Dot) the rented domain can be configured with the NS information of your existing host. If this option is preferred, please email webmaster@longisland.li so that arrangements can be made for this option.

You agree to the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP"), which is available at www.icann.org. You agree that the UDRP may be changed by ICANN (or ICANN's successor) at any time. You agree that, if the registration or reservation of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time your domain name registration is disputed by the third party. You also agree that, in the event a domain name dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions of the UDRP. You also understand that it is important for you to regularly monitor email sent to the email address associated with your rented domain names because, among other reasons, if a dispute arises regarding Services provided to you, you may lose your rights to receive the Services if you do not respond expeditiously to an email sent in conjunction therewith.

As consideration for the Service(s), renewal of the Service(s), and, if you select it, automatic renewal of the Service(s), you agree to pay, prior to the effectiveness of the desired Service(s), the applicable Service(s) fees. All fees are non-refundable, in whole or in part, even if your domain name is suspended, cancelled or transferred prior to the end of your then current registration term, unless this Agreement specifically provides for a refund.

You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to keep your own records and to maintain your own reminders regarding when your domain name rental or other Services are set to expire. As a convenience to you, and not as a binding commitment, we may notify you via an email message or via your account when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid, your Services will expire or be cancelled. You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to keep your billing information up to date and that we are not required to, but that we may, contact you to update this information in the event that an attempted transaction is not processed successfully.

As further consideration for the Service(s), you agree to provide certain current, complete and accurate information about you. You agree to maintain and update this information as needed to keep it current, complete and accurate. With respect to you, the administrative, technical, and billing contacts for your domain name registration(s) and other Service(s), you must submit the following: name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and where available, fax number. You agree that the type of information you are required to provide may change and you understand that, if you do not provide the newly required information, your registration or and/or other Service(s) may be suspended or terminated or may not be renewed. Not providing requested information may prevent you from obtaining all Service(s). You may provide information regarding the name-servers assigned to your domain name(s) and, if we are providing name-server services to you, the DNS settings for the domain name. If you do not provide complete name-server information, or if you purchase "Name Only" Services, you agree that we may supply this information (and point your domain name to a website of our choosing) until such time as you elect to supply the name-server information or until such time as you elect to upgrade from "Name Only" Services.

In the event that, in registering a domain name or obtaining other Service(s), you provide information about or on behalf of a third party, you represent that you have (a) provided notice to that third party of the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Agreement, and (b) that you have obtained the third party's express consent to the disclosure and use of that party's information as set forth in this Agreement. By renting a domain name or applying for other Service(s) you also represent that the statements in your application are true and you also represent that the domain name is not being rented or the Services being procured for any unlawful purpose. You acknowledge that providing inaccurate information or failing to update information promptly will constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for suspension or termination of Services to you. You further agree that your failure to respond for over ten (10) calendar days to inquiries by us concerning the accuracy of account, shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and will be sufficient basis for suspension or termination of Service(s) to you. As indicated elsewhere in this Agreement, you understand that it is important for you to regularly monitor email sent to the email address associated with your account.

In no event shall we be liable if such reasonable precautions do not prevent the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password and that, even if we fail to take reasonable precautions, that our liability under any circumstances shall be limited by the limitation of liability provision found below in this agreement. If you contact us alleging that a third party has unauthorized access to your account or domain names, you agree that we may charge you administrative fees of $50 (US dollars) per hour for our time spent in relation to the matter, regardless of whether or not we return control over the account and/or domain names to you.
You agree and acknowledge that we own all database, compilation, collective and similar rights, title and interests worldwide in our domain name database, and all information and derivative works generated from the domain name database.

For a period of approximately 30 days after expiration of the term of domain name rental, you acknowledge that we may provide a procedure by which expired domain rental services may be renewed. You acknowledge and agree that we may, but are not obligated to, offer this process, called the "reactivation period." You acknowledge that you assume all risks and all consequences if you wait until close to or after the expiration of the original term of domain name registration services to attempt to renew the domain name registration services. You acknowledge that we, for any reason and in our sole discretion, may choose not to offer a reactivation period and that we shall not be liable therefore. You acknowledge that reactivation period renewal processes, if any, may involve additional fees which we may determine. You acknowledge and agree that we may make expired domain services(s) available to third parties.

After the reactivation period, you agree that we may discontinue the domain name rental services at any time thereafter.

You agree that we will not be liable for any (1) suspension or loss of the service(s), including, without limitation, domain name registration services, (2) use of the service(s), including, without limitation domain name registration services, (3) interruption of our services or interruption of your business, (4) access delays or access interruptions to our web site(s) or service(s) or delays or access interruptions you experience in relation to a domain name registered with us; (5) loss or liability resulting from acts of or events beyond our control (6) data non-delivery, mis-delivery, corruption, destruction or other modification; (7) the processing of an application for a domain name registration; (8) loss or liability resulting from the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password; or (9) application of the dispute policy. You also agree that neither we nor your primary service provider will be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any kind (including lost profits) regardless of the form of action whether in contract, tort (including negligence), or otherwise, even if we or your primary service provider have been advised of the possibility of such damages. In no event shall our or your primary service provider's maximum aggregate liability exceed the total amount paid by you for registration of the domain name, but in no event greater than four hundred dollars ($400.00 us dollars). Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states, our and/or your primary service provider's liability shall be limited to the maximum extent permitted by law.

With respect to ICANN, the registry operators, us, and your Primary Service Provider, as well as the contractors, agents, employees, officers, directors, shareholders, and affiliates of such parties, you agree to release, indemnify, and hold such parties harmless from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorney's fees and court costs, for third party claims relating to or arising under this Agreement, the Service(s) provided hereunder, or your use of the Service(s), including, without limitation, infringement by you, or by anyone else using the Service(s) we provide to you, of any intellectual property or other proprietary right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any of our operating rules or policies relating to the Service(s) provided. When we may be involved in a suit involving a third party and which is related to our Service(s) to you under this Agreement, we may seek written assurances from you in which you promise to indemnify and hold us harmless from the costs and liabilities described in this paragraph. Such written assurances may include, in our sole discretion, the posting of a performance bond(s) or other guarantees reasonably calculated to guarantee payment. Your failure to provide such assurances may be considered by us to be a breach of this Agreement by you and may, in our sole discretion, result in loss of your right to control the disposition of domain name services for which you are the registrant and in relation to which we are the registrar of record. This indemnification is in addition to any indemnification required under the UDRP.

Representations and warranties: you represent that, to the best of your knowledge and belief, neither the domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used nor the use of other of the service(s) infringes the legal rights of a third party. You further represent and warrant that all information provided by you in connection with your procurement of the service(s) is accurate. All service(s) are provided to you "as is" and with all faults. We make no representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever, express or implied, in connection with this agreement or the service(s), including but not limited to warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, unless such representations and warranties are not legally excludable. Without any limitation to the foregoing, we make no representations or warranties of any kind whatsoever that registration or use of a domain name under this agreement will immunize you either from challenges to your domain name registration, or from suspension, cancellation or transfer of the domain name registered to you. You understand and agree that any material and/or data downloaded or otherwise obtained through the use of our e-mail forwarding or other email service is done at your own discretion and risk and that you will be solely responsible for any damage to your computer system or loss of data that results from the download of such material and/or data. We make no warranty regarding any goods or services purchased or obtained through our e-mail service(s) or any transactions entered into through our e-mail service(s). No advice or information, whether oral or written, obtained by you from us shall create any warranty not expressly made herein. Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties, so some of the above exclusions may not apply to you.

Except as otherwise set forth in the UDRP or any similar ccTLD policy with respect to any dispute over a domain name registration this Agreement, your rights and obligations and all actions contemplated by this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America and the State of New York, as if the Agreement was a contract wholly entered into and wholly performed within the State of New York. You agree that any action brought by you to enforce this Agreement or any matter brought by you and which is against or involves us and which relates to your use of the Services shall be brought exclusively in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, or if there is no jurisdiction in such court, then in a state court in Nassau County, New York state. You consent to the personal and subject matter jurisdiction of any state or Federal court in Nassau County, New York state in relation to any dispute between you and us under this Agreement. You agree that service of process on you by us in relation to any dispute arising under this Agreement may be served upon you by first class mail to the address listed by you in your account and/or domain name information or by electronically transmitting a true copy of the papers to the email address listed by you in your account and/or domain name information. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for the adjudication of third party disputes (i.e., disputes between you and another party, not us) concerning or arising from use of domain names registered hereunder, you acknowledge and agree that you shall submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts (a) of the domain name holder's domicile, and (b) where we are located, currently Nassau County, New York.

You attest that you are of legal age to enter into this Agreement. This Agreement and the UDRP, together with all modifications, constitute the complete and exclusive agreement between you and us, and supersede and govern all prior proposals, agreements, or other communications. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, or other form of joint enterprise between the parties. The failure of us to require your performance of any provision hereof shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by us of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole. We will amend or replace such provision with one that is valid and enforceable and which achieves, to the extent possible, our original objectives and intent as reflected in the original provision. This Agreement may not be amended or modified by you except by means of a written document signed by both you and an authorized representative of us.
