Domain name registrations are not effective until the registry administrator ("Registry") puts them into effect. Submitting your application to Join.law, and Join.law accepting fees for your application, by itself does not constitute a successfully registered application or renewal. You acknowledge that Join.law can never guarantee, that the domain name you are applying for is not being applied for by another party or with another registrar, that there are no inaccuracies in the Registry's whois or other databases, that the search availability results are correct, or that there are errors, omissions, or inaccuracies that occur during the registration or renewal process which affect the result of your registration or renewal application.

You agree to abide by the terms in this Agreement to register and renew domain names as well as all terms and conditions of ICANN governing the registration of renewal of such domain names including, but not limited to, dispute resolution policies such as the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy ("UDRP") or the Uniform Rapid Suspension Policy ("URS") as well as all current and future policies related to those domain names including any whois data policies.
Your Obligations. You represent to Join.law that: (i) you are at least 18 years of age and are legally capable of entering into this Agreement; (ii) you will not violate this Agreement and will comply with all local, state, national and international laws; (iii) you will not use the Site or the Services for any unlawful purpose; (iv) you will not represent yourself as another person or entity, or submit information on behalf of another person or entity without their express prior written consent; (v) you will not provide false, inaccurate, or incomplete information in your application for the Services; (vi) you will maintain complete and accurate information with Join.law at all times in relation to the Services; (vii) you will not violate third party trade or service marks, copyrights, patents or other intellectual property rights; (viii) your use of the Services does not result in excess use of Join.law resources or overloading of Join.law DNS, server, or network resources; (ix) you will not use the Services as a source or destination of packet flooding, mail bombs, phishing, packet corruption, denial of service, or other illegal or abusive cyber activities; (x) you will not conduct server hacking or promote hacking, cracking, or other cybercrimes or activities; (xi) you will not deploy software or scripts to run on Join.law servers that cause overload of resources or threaten the stability of the network; (xii) you will not disseminate or transmit spam email; (xiii) you will not disseminate illegal, hateful, harmful, violent, racially or ethnically intolerant, abusive, obscene, pornographic, defamatory, harassing, malicious, protected material, or content that otherwise violates the intellectual property rights of others; (xiv) you will not use website forwarding services for unlawful purposes or for any purpose which violate the terms of this Agreement or any other agreement with Join.law.

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.
ICANN registrant rights and responsibilities. Please take a moment to look at the rules surrounding your benefits and responsibilities, available at: http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/raa/approved-with-specs-27jun13-en.htm#registrant.
Transfers. You may transfer domain names to and from Join.law according to the terms and transfer policies of the respective registry for the TLD of the domain name you wish to transfer. In order to protect your domain names, we may place a transfer lock on domain names automatically when they are registered or renewed with us. In order to transfer to another registrar, you must remove this transfer lock. You are able to do this from your account on the Site. In no event shall Join.law be liable for the failure of a transfer or loss of your domain name if the transfer is initiated close to the end of the registration term, the transfer is not approved by the registrant or administrative contact of the domain name, the fees for the service remain unpaid or are in dispute, or any other reason outlined in ICANN or the Registry's transfer policies.
Renewal and Expiration of Services. You acknowledge that, even though Join.law may provide an auto-renewal service for your convenience, it is your sole responsibility to keep your own records and to maintain your own reminders regarding when your Services are set to expire to ensure that your renewal fees are paid for the Services prior to the due date. With respect to domain name registration services, Join.law will send at least two expiration notices to the primary email address of the account holder and/or the registrant email address on record prior to expiration beginning 30 days in advance of expiration. In addition, if the domain name expires, Join.law will send a final expiration notice within 10 days after expiration. Join.law is not liable for your failure to pay the renewal fees prior to the due date specified by Join.law. Immediately after the expiration of a domain name and before the deletion of the domain name in the applicable registry's database, you acknowledge that Join.law may direct the domain name to name servers and/or IP addresses designated by us, including, without limitation, to no IP address or to an IP address which invites visitors to purchase the domain name, and you acknowledge that we may either leave your information intact or that we may change your information for the expired domain name so that you are no longer the listed as the registrant or administrative contact of the expired domain name. For a period of 30 days after the expiration of the term of your domain name, you acknowledge that Join.law may provide, for a fee, a procedure by which your expired domain name may be renewed. You acknowledge and agree that Join.law may, but is not obligated to, offer this process. 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 the domain name to attempt to renew the domain name. You acknowledge and agree that we may make expired domain names available to third parties and that expired domain names may be re-registered to any party at any time. Join.law may delete the domain name at any time between 30 and 45 days post-expiration.
Top-Level Domain Registry Agreements. The registration of a domain name and its ongoing use is subject to the relevant Registry Operator's terms and conditions of use and you are responsible for ensuring that you are aware of those terms and conditions and can and do comply with them. We act only as an intermediary between you and the organization providing the domain name. You also acknowledge having read and understood and agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of the relevant Registry Policies applicable to your top-level domain name(s).
You agree that, if the registration of your domain name is challenged by a third party, you will be subject to the provisions specified in the dispute policy adopted by the applicable registry. You 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 contained in the applicable policy. You irrevocably waive any claims you may have against us in respect of the decision of a Registry Operator to refuse to register a domain name.
Disputes. We accept no responsibility in respect of the use of a domain name by you and any dispute between you and any other individual or organization regarding a domain name must be resolved between the parties concerned and we will take no part in any such dispute. We reserve the right, on our becoming aware of such a dispute, at our sole discretion and without giving any reason, to either suspend or cancel the domain name, and/or to make appropriate representations to the relevant Registry Operator.
Obligation to maintain registration contact data. Your willful provision of inaccurate or unreliable information, your willful failure promptly to update information provided to us, or any failure to respond to inquiries by us addressed to the email address of the registrant, the administrative, billing or technical contact appearing in the Whois directory with respect to a domain name concerning the accuracy of contact details associated with the registration shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement and be a basis for cancellation of the domain name registration. Any information collected by us concerning an identified or identifiable natural person ("Personal Data") will be used in connection with the registration of your domain name(s) and for the purposes of this Agreement and as required or permitted by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") or an applicable registry policy. For more information on our use of Personal Data, please see our Privacy, Data Collection and Cookies Policy.
Agency. Should you intend to license use of a domain name to a third party you shall nonetheless be the domain name holder of record and are therefore responsible for providing your own full contact information and for providing and updating accurate technical and administrative contact information adequate to facilitate timely resolution of any problems that arise in connection with the domain name. You shall accept liability for any harm caused by wrongful use of the domain name. You represent that you will secure the agreement of any third party to the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
Term. This Agreement will remain in effect during the term of your domain name registration as selected, recorded and paid for at the time of registration or any renewal thereof. Should the domain name be transferred to another registrar, the terms and conditions of this Agreement shall cease.
Coupons. From time to time, coupons may be offered. We reserve the right to offer and to revoke coupons at our option. Coupons apply only to standard domain names and not to premium domain names. Only one coupon code may be used per transaction. Coupons are only applicable to the first year of registration. Coupons may not be applied to domains already purchased.
Fees & Payments
You agree to pay any and all fees (including any registration fees required by ICANN) due for services purchased at the Site at the time you order the services and any and all outstanding Premium Name fees due within 10 days of notice from Join.law. All prices and fees are non-refundable unless otherwise expressly noted, even if your services are suspended, terminated, or transferred prior to the end of the services term. Join.law expressly reserves the right to change or modify its prices and fees at any time and such changes or modifications shall be posted online at the Site and effective immediately without need for further notice to you. If you have purchased services for a period, changes or modifications in prices and fees shall be effective when the services in question come up for renewal.
Payment of the fees may only be made by a valid credit/debit card unless as otherwise noted and you are required to provide details of the same when you place an order for the services.
You acknowledge that the fees are exclusive of any telecommunication charges. All telecommunication charges incurred by you in connection with the use of the services remain solely at all times your responsibility.
All prices exclude relevant local tax and/or VAT.
Returned credit card and/or debit card payments are subject to a $50 administration charge. Failure to pay these fees within 30 days of the date of issue will mean your entire account will be put on hold and a collections agency will be handed over your details.
We offer an automatic renewal option for your registered domain name. The automatic renewal option will automatically renew the applicable service for a one-year period. Automatic renewal is set as the default option for your account with Join.law. Therefore, unless you disable the automatic renewal option, Join.law will automatically renew the applicable service when it comes up for renewal and will take payment from the payment method you have on file with us at our then current rates, which you acknowledge and agree may be higher or lower than the rates for the original service period. No refunds will be granted for automatic renewals. In order to see the renewal settings applicable to you and your services, simply log into your Join.law account manager from this site and review your automatic renewal settings. You may enable or disable the automatic renewal option at any time. If you disable the automatic renewal option and fail to manually renew your services before they expire, you may experience an interruption or loss of services, and Join.law shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.
Join.law may also participate in "recurring billing programs" or "account updater services" supported by your credit card provider and also is dependent on your bank's participation. If you are enrolled in an automatic renewal option and we cannot successfully charge your existing payment method on file with us, your credit card provider (or your bank) may notify us of updates to your credit card number and/or expiration date, or they may automatically charge your new credit card on our behalf without notification to us. In accordance with the requirements of the recurring billing program, in the event that Join.law is notified of an update to your credit card number and/or expiration date, Join.law will automatically update the credit card information associated with your account. Join.law does not guarantee that it will request or receive updated credit card information. You acknowledge and agree that it is solely your responsibility to modify and maintain your account settings and payment methods, including but not limited to (i) setting your renewal options and (ii) ensuring your associated payment method(s) are current and valid. You further acknowledge and agree that your failure to so set your renewal options and assure that your payment methods are current may result in the interruption or loss of services, and Join.law will not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same. Internal domain name transfers will incur the same charges as domain registrations.
