APPENDIX A (.ca)
In order that a party may hold a valid .ca domain name registration, TUCOWS,
requires that all registrants adhere to certain terms and conditions. As an
organization or individual applying to register, transfer or renew an .ca domain
name via the agency of wundersolutions.com and/or TUCOWS you accordingly agree
- AGREEMENT. In this Registration Agreement ("Agreement") , "we",
us" and "our" refer to TUCOWS Inc. and "Services" refers to the domain name
registration, transfer or renewal services provided by us as offered through
wundersolutions.com, the Registration Service Provider ("RSP"). CIRA shall
refer to the entity granted the exclusive right to administer the registry
for .ca domain name registrations.
- SELECTION OF A DOMAIN NAME. You represent that, to the best of
the your knowledge and belief, neither the registration of the domain name
nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal
rights of a third party and that the domain name is not being registered for
any unlawful purpose.
- FEES. As consideration for the Services you have selected, you
agree to pay to us, or your respective RSP who remits payment to us on your
behalf, the applicable fees. All fees payable hereunder are non-refundable.
As further consideration for the Services, you agree to: (1) provide certain
current, complete and accurate information about you as required by the registration
process and (2) maintain and update this information as needed to keep it
current, complete and accurate. All such information shall be referred to
as account information ("Account Information"). You, by completing and submitting
this Agreement represent that the statements in your application are true.
- TERM. You agree that this Agreement will remain in full force during
the term of your domain name registration as selected, recorded, and paid
for upon registration of the domain name. Should you choose to renew the term
of your domain name registration, then the term of this Agreement will be
extended accordingly. Should you transfer your domain name or should the domain
name otherwise be transferred to another Registrar, the terms and conditions
of this contract shall cease and shall be replaced by the contractual terms
in force between domain name registrants and the new Registrar.
- MODIFICATIONS TO AGREEMENT. You agree, during the period of this
Agreement, that we may: (1) revise the terms and conditions of this Agreement;
and (2) change the services provided under this Agreement. Any such revision
or change will be binding and effective immediately on posting of the revised
Agreement or change to the service(s) on our web site, or on notification
to you by e-mail or regular mail as per the Notices section of this agreement.
You agree to review our web site, including the Agreement, periodically to
be aware of any such revisions. If you do not agree with any revision to the
Agreement, you may terminate this Agreement at any time by providing us with
notice by e-mail or regular mail as per the Notices section of this agreement.

us. You agree that, by continuing to use the Services following notice of
any revision to this Agreement or change in service(s), you shall abide by
any such revisions or changes. You further agree to abide by the CIRA dispute
resolution policy ("Dispute Policy") as amended from time to time. You agree
that, by maintaining the reservation or registration of your domain name after
modifications to the Dispute Policy become effective, you have agreed to these
modifications. You acknowledge that if you do not agree to any such modifications,
you may request that your domain name be deleted from the domain name database.
- MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR ACCOUNT. In order to change any of your account
information with us, you must use your account identifier and password that
you selected when you opened your account with us. Please safeguard your account
identifier and password from any unauthorized use. In no event will we be
liable for the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password.
- DOMAIN NAME DISPUTE POLICY. If you reserved or registered a domain
name through us, or transferred a domain name to us from another registrar,
you agree to be bound by the Dispute Policy which is incorporated herein and
made a part of this Agreement by reference. The current version of the Dispute
Policy may be found at the CIRA website. Please take the time to familiarize
yourself with this policy.
- DOMAIN NAME DISPUTES. 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 of the
dispute. 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 Dispute Policy.
- CIRA POLICY. You agree that your registration of the domain name
shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any
CIRA-adopted policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure not
inconsistent with an CIRA-adopted policy, (1) to correct mistakes by a registrar
or the registry in registering the name or (2) for the resolution of disputes
concerning the domain name.
- AGENCY. Should you intend to license use of a domain name to a
third party you shall nonetheless be the domain name registrant 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 harm
caused by wrongful use of thedomain name. You also represent that you have
provided notice of the terms and conditions in this Agreement to the third
party and that the third party agrees to the terms of Disclosure and Use of
Registration Information (sections 18 and 19 of this Agreement).
- ANNOUNCEMENTS. We and the RSP reserve the right to distribute information
to you that is pertinent to the quality or operation of our services and those
of our service partners. These announcements will be predominately informative
in nature and may include notices describing changes, upgrades, new products
or other information to add security or to enhance your identity on the Internet.
- LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. You agree that our entire liability, and
your exclusive remedy, with respect to any Services(s) provided under this

you paid for such Service(s). We and our contractors shall not be liable for
any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages resulting
from the use or inability to use any of the Services or for the cost of procurement
of substitute services. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion
or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such
jurisdictions, our liability is limited to the extent permitted by law. We
disclaim any and all loss or liability resulting from, but not limited to:
(1) loss or liability resulting from access delays or access interruptions;
(2) loss or liability resulting from data non-delivery or data mis-delivery;
(3) loss or liability resulting from acts of God; (4) loss or liability resulting
from the unauthorized use or misuse of your account identifier or password;

any and all information or services(s) provided under this Agreement; (6)
loss or liability resulting from the interruption of your Service. You agree
that we will not be liable for any loss of registration and use of your domain
name, or for interruption of business, or 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 have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
- INDEMNITY. You agree to release, indemnify, and hold us, our contractors,
agents, employees,officers, directors and affiliates harmless from all liabilities,
claims and expenses, including attorney's fees, from claims by third parties,
including but not limited to the RSP and CIRA relating to or arising under
this Agreement, the Services provided hereunder or your use of the Services,
including without limitation infringement by you, or someone else using the
Service with your computer, of any intellectual property or other proprietary
right of any person or entity, or from the violation of any of our operating
rules or policy relating to the service(s) provided. You also agree to release,
indemnify and hold us harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained
in the CIRA Dispute Policy. When we are threatened with suit by a third party,
we may seek written assurances from you concerning your promise to indemnify
us; your failure to provide those assurances may be considered by us to be
a breach of your Agreement and may result in deactivation of your domain name.
- TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP. Any transfer of ownership in and to a domain
name registration shall be affected in accordance with CIRA policies and procedures.
- BREACH. You agree that failure to abide by any provision of this
Agreement, any operating rule or policy or the Dispute Policy, may be considered
by us to be a material breach and that we may provide a written notice, describing
the breach, to you. If within thirty (30) calendar days of the date of such
notice, you fail to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to
us, that you have not breached your obligations under the Agreement, then
we may delete the registration or reservation of your domain name. Any such
breach by you shall not be deemed to be excused simply because we did not
act earlier in response to that, or any other, breach by you.
- NO GUARANTY. You agree that, by registration or reservation of
your chosen domain name, such registration or reservation does not confer
immunity from objection to either the registration, reservation, or use of
the domain name.
