Domain Name Services

3.31 Our Domain Name Services include, without limit, domain name registration and hosting. From time to time additional Services may be added, or Services may be removed.

3.32 We will register a domain name of your choice with a domain name extension ".co.uk"; ".org.uk"; ".ltd.uk" (subject to meeting Nominet's requirements); ".plc.uk" (subject to meeting Nominet's requirements); ".com"; ".org"; ".net"; ".biz"; or ".info"; ("your Domain Name"), host your Domain Name, connect your Domain Name to your web pages hosted by us (Web FormationTM) and pay the initial administration fees charged by the relevant domain name registry ("Registry"). We will endeavour to complete the registration of your Domain Name within 14 days of your Order but we will not be liable for any failure to do so. In the case of ".uk" domains, we will pay the required fees to Nominet, which for new domain purchases, requires us to pay for two years of registration. For all other domains, we will pay one year's fees to the appropriate registry.

3.33 We will transfer a pre-registered domain to us provided that:

  • The domain extension must be one from the list set out in clause 3.31 above;
  • The domain name must have been registered for more than 60 days at the time of your instruction to us;
  • The domain name must not be due for renewal in the 21 days following your instruction to us;
  • You must complete and return our standard transfer form in a manner acceptable to us and the Registry; and
  • You must follow the steps detailed in our standard transfer form to notify your current host that you wish to transfer the domain to us.

3.34 You warrant that the details submitted by you to us for the purpose of the Domain Name Service are true and correct, and that future editions or alterations to those details will be true and correct.

3.35 Domain names are usually allocated by the Registrar on a first-come, first-served basis. This means that until the registration process is complete, your Domain Name could be registered by any other party. If for this or any other reason your Domain Name is not available, we will contact you to agree a suitable alternative domain name. If our attempts to register your Domain Name are then unsuccessful, we will, upon receipt of your written request, repay to you such element of the Charges paid by you as relate to the registration of the domain name.

3.36 Any domain name that is registered by us is subject to the terms and policies of the Registrar responsible for the domain name that you have purchased. We give no warranty whatsoever that we will be able to secure your Domain Name, that once secured you will be permitted to retain your Domain Name, or that your Domain Name will be free and clear of intellectual property rights and/or any other claim or challenge by third parties (including without limit, rights and/or claims in relation to registered and unregistered trademarks).

3.37 We reserve the right to disclose to a Registry such of your details as may be required to complete the registration of your Domain Name. You acknowledge that the data that we provide to the Registrar is "personal data" for the purposes of data protection and legislation and that subsequently that the Registry may allow other organisations and members of the public to access such data about you.

3.38 You acknowledge and accept that we will be acting as your agent for the purposes of registering your Domain Name. You hereby appoint us as your agent for such purposes, and specifically give us your consent to enter into a legally binding contract in your name with the Registrar subject to the Registrar's standard terms and conditions.

3.39 Should your web site's bandwidth usage reach the point where it causes an adverse affect on other Clients, we reserve the right to disable your web site until such a time as you are able to reduce your bandwidth usage.

3.40 Each domain name hosted by us includes up to 5gb of bandwidth. If you use more than this amount, you agree to pay for this additional bandwidth at a rate of £10.00 per 1000mb of usage.

3.41 From time to time the server on which your domain is hosted or its connection to the Internet may be inaccessible or inoperable for any reason, including, without limitation: (i) equipment malfunctions; (ii) maintenance procedures or repairs which may need to be undertaken; or (iii) causes beyond our control or which we cannot reasonably foresee. We will endeavour to ensure that your website is available at all times, but you acknowledge that computer and telecommunications systems are not error free and that we will not be liable to you or any other person for loss of revenue or earnings or any other loss that you suffer as a result of your website being unavailable or inaccessible.

4. Transfer of Your Domain Name

4.1 You will be permitted to transfer Your Domain Name to any third party in accordance with the Registrar's terms and conditions. If you do so, we will have no obligation to provide Services to the transferee and you are not entitled to any refund of any Charges that you may have paid to us.

4.2 You may transfer a domain name away from us, subject to our receipt from you of our standard transfer-out form, completed and signed by your approved signatory. In cases where the domain extension name is any of ".com"; ".org"; ".net"; ".info"; ".biz" the domain must be active, i.e. not listed as "expired, pending deletion or redemption period" at the Registry's WHOIS. Transferring out of such a domain name with this status incurs a charge imposed by the Registry of between $12.00 and $200, which charge we will pay and for which you shall re-imburse us in full.

5. Your Obligations to Us

5.1 You will promptly provide us (free of charge) with any information that we may reasonably require to enable us to proceed with the performance of our obligations under the Contract. This may include (without limitation) any information which we may reasonably request for the purpose of credit verification and debt collection purposes and you permit us to use such information and to provide it to third parties acting on our behalf for such purposes.

5.2 You are responsible for ensuring that all Deliverable Material that you provide to us is accurate, decent, lawful, and honest, free from third party advertising, and that such Deliverable Material is not offensive, prejudicial or inflammatory, likely to expose us to claims, result in our prosecution, cause us to infringe the legal rights of any third party, or cause us embarrassment or distress of any kind. You agree that you will be responsible to us for any losses costs or claims that we incur if you supply Deliverable Material to us which breaches this obligation.

5.3 You must supply Deliverable Material to us in a suitable format (details of which will be supplied upon your request). You must ensure that any Deliverable Material that you supply to us in an electronic form is provided using fully licensed software and is free from harmful viruses or similar.

5.5 If we in our sole discretion consider necessary, we reserve the right to contact the owner of any intellectual property rights vested in any Deliverable Materials provided by you to verify that we have permission to use such Deliverable Materials. However we shall have no liability for failing to do so.

5.6 We may telephone you from time to time and, as with incoming calls, you accept that all such calls may be recorded for internal purposes, including monitoring and training.

Video Advertising

5.7 It is the Customer's responsibility to provide all information or Deliverable Materials required for production, on time and in the correct format. Failure to do so will be deemed to be the grant of any reasonably necessary discretion by EML to enable the video montage to be completed by the VPP. EML will accept no liability for, and the Customer will grant EML an indemnity in respect of any losses arising out of any such failure.

5.8 You may terminate this agreement immediately at any time by providing written notice of termination to us by email (with confirmed receipt), post or fax (with confirmed receipt) stating that you wish to terminate your video advertising service and stating your customer contact name, your customer business name and your customer ID. If you terminate this agreement, we will not be required to make any refund to you or give credit for any uncompleted element of the Service.

5.9 Where you supply a video to be be linked to your Paid For Listing on Scoot, you will acquire at your own cost (and will continue to hold throughout the term) all rights, consents and licences necessary to enable EML to activate the link to a third party hosting site.

  • to attempt to circumvent user authentication or security of any host, network or account;
  • to interfere or deny service to any user, host or network including without limit for the purpose of flooding, mailbombing, or any other deliberate attempt to overload or crash a host or network;
  • to transmit any material that is in our sole opinion unlawful, obscene, threatening, abusive, libellous, or which encourages conduct that would constitute a criminal offence, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any local, national or international law;
  • for the purpose of originating spam or spam advertising.

5.11 If you breach any of your obligations set out in clause 5.10 above, we reserve the right at our discretion to terminate the Contract immediately without warning and without limit you agree to indemnify us against any costs, claims or expenses that we incur as a result.
