- OBJECT OF THE DOMAIN NAME BOOKING SERVICE
When the domain name booking and registration service agreement is signed, Register.it provides the means necessary to guarantee the presentation of the registration application to the RA at the time of activation of a new TLD. Register.it carries out the booking service automatically and without going into the merits of the domain booked. For this reason, it cannot in any way assure the Customer that the domain might effectively be registered during the registration phase proper. Register.it will in any case proceed with the booking in strict chronological order of the applications received by it, by means of a procedure which records the price date of receipt of each application. When the relevant RA opens the registration phase, Register.it will send out the bookings in such a way as to adhere to the chronological order in which the applications were received.NB: for the booking and registration of domains.xxx, we recommend that you read the terms of 4.10 of this SO carefully.

The Client recognizes and accepts that for some TLD Register.it will proceed to the registration before the competent Authority by means of another accredited Registrar.

If the customer configures his own DNS, Register.it may immediately suspend the service, and possibly claim damages. If the customer decides to acquire the product named Dominio Standard (‘Standard Domain’) or Dominio Pro (‘Pro Domain’), the customer will only have to pay the difference in price paid for Dominio+ and the product he acquires from among those listed above.

The Customer acknowledges and agrees that the inclusion in the watch list for a particular domain name does not assign to the Customer any rights to the same, therefore the Customer acknowledges that Register does not guarantee any results about the success of any registration of domain names included “watchlist” by the customer.

4 – CONDITIONS OF DNR SERVICE 4.1 RULES AND PROCEDURES:
4.1 RULES AND PROCEDURES: The rules and procedures necessary for the DNR service are those established by the respective Authorities with jurisdiction. The Customer undertakes to learn and respect the regulations and rules of the various Authorities. In particular, the Customer recognizes and agrees that the request for the DNR Service might require the Customer to contact the competent Authorities directly (e.g. the entering on the Register.it site, or sending of domainsdocumentation to the Authorities). Failure to do so or doing so after expiration of the deadlines established in the regulations of the individual Authorities can prevent registration of the requested domain and provision of any correlated service. In this case, Register.it reserves the right to withhold the amount paid by the Customer when he/she acquired the service. With regard to all TLDs the Customer acknowledges and agrees that he/she/it must comply with the terms and conditions, standards, policies, procedures and practices set forth by RA visible on their websites that can be found on the following link http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db.
Furthermore, the Customer acknowledges and agrees that these Terms and Conditions, standards, policies and procedures are subject to modification by the RA and that Customer must promptly comply with any such changes in the time allotted.In regard to certain Domain Names, the relative Naming Rules may reserve registration of the Domain Name only and exclusively in favor of those persons (admin-c) with a permanent local representative office, established in the forms required by the jurisdictional norms where the RA has a representative office. This space is set up in the forms required by the norms of the jurisdiction where the RA registrar is located. Accordingly, the Customer must provide all information regarding the organization of the domain name registrant, with a specific indication of any branch and/or local representative offices qualified to carry out the action.The Client is aware and acknowledges that reserved domain names exist, including geographical domain names and those reserved for public authorities, and as such, these cannot be allocated. Nor can domains with pornographic, blasphemous, or in any way illegal names be allocated. In the case of a request for registration, the Client therefore acknowledges and accepts that the competent Authority shall proceed with non-allocation, that is, cancellation of said domains, releasing Register.it from all liability in this regard. The Client accepts from this time on that in such situations Register.it shall not refund any amounts paid by the former for the registration of said domains. In all cases, it shall be the sole responsibility of the Client to proceed with the correct entering of all the information requested by the Authority during any registration, data transferral or changing procedures. Consequently Register.it cannot be held liable should there be any errors that could give rise to the non-registration or cancellation of the registered domain at the Authority’s complete discretion. The Client is informed that certain Authorities request that the Registrars store the log files in their servers necessary for identifying the operations carried out by the Client, and that such data may be transferred to the Authorities at their request for the verification activities of their competence. In case of activities performed by the Client on behalf of third parties, the Client declares and guarantees to have obtained all the authorisations necessary for carrying out every operation on behalf of said third parties in relation to the domains foreseen.
The Customer accepts and recognizes that his/her personal data will be transmitted to the Authorities and will appear on the public Whois databases of the Authorities in respect of the Domain Name. In case the Customer acts on behalf of third-parties or end customers, he/she undertakes to comply with all the applicable privacy data protection regulations.
The Customer takes all responsibility and fully indemnifies Register.it in that respect. Moreover, the Client declares to be authorised to use the Auth-info code received from the Registrant of the domain, and therefore to be authorised to carry out in his/her name and on his/her behalf, all the operations for managing the relative domain.
The Client consequently declares his/her intention of indemnifying Register.it and holding it harmless against any claims advanced by third parties in this regard. In addition, the Client has been informed and explicitly authorises Register.it to send the Registrants notifications regarding the service. In this context, the Client is aware and accepts that the Registrants will be informed that Register.it is acting as Registrar. The registration Rules and Technical Procedures in effect at the time of the event apply to all events connected with or subsequent to registration of the domain name.
In the event of failure by the client to meet the requirements of suitability for registration and/or maintenance and/or transfer of the domain name/s, the same client shall no be longer entitled to reimbursement of the paid sum. Register.it, only in the case that the service was not charged by the RA, shall allow the client to order another domain name or purchase another service, with the same price as the service initially ordered, in the case that it was not possible to conclude the previous order due to causes not attributable to Register.it.
The Customer accepts and recognizes that in case he/she decides the use the Local Service, such service may consist, but is not limited to, in providing a local admin-c and/or a local Registrant for the domain name, depending on the extension. The Customer accepts and recognizes that the local admin-c and/or the Registrant will appear on the Whois databases and will have the corresponding prerogatives as established by the relevant Authorities. In the case that Register.it provides Local Service and in the event of court proceedings or out-of-court settlements involving the said local contact for questions concerning the registered domain, the Customer undertakes to refund legal costs arising from the procedure. Moreover, Register.it would like to inform that the local service will not be provided if the domain is maintained by a party other than Register.it. Therefore, should the client wish to transfer the domain to another registrar/maintainer, he/she undertakes to provide the data pertaining to the new local data (or local owner or local contact). Under no circumstances will Register.it be held responsible for not consenting to the domain transfer to another registrar/maintainer, in the case the client has not first provided Register.it with the new local contact details. The Registrant has rights and obligations that have been established by the ICANN and which can be found at the following URL http://www.icann.org/en/registrars/registrant-rights-responsibilities-en.htm.
4.1.1 Change Registrant Procedure (gTLD domains managed by ICANN)
The Client acknowledges and accepts that from 1st December 2016 any variation
regarding the name, surname, Organisation/Company and/or the email address of the Registrant of a gTLD domain managed by ICANN, will be subject to the procedure outlined below, in observance of the provisions of the relative ICANN policy (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/transfer-policy-2016-06-01-en )(“Policy”).
“Change of Registrant”: refers to a substantial change to the following data:
- Registrant Name;
- Registrant Organisation;
- Registrant email;
- Administration Contacts, if there is no email address of the Registrant;
“Designated Agent“: refers to the party authorised by the Current Registrant and the New Registrant for completing the Change of Registrant procedure and authorisation to proceed with the Change of Registrant on their behalf.
“Substantial Change“: refers to a change that is not a mere typographical correction to a Name Surname, Organisation or any change to the email address;
“Current Registrant“: refers to the entity or person who registered the domain name at the time of the request for Change of Registrant.
“New Registrant“: refers to the entity or person to whom the Current Registrant requests to transfer ownership of the domain name.
“Transfer Lock Period”: refers to the period of 60 days as of the date of completion of the Change of Registrant procedure, during which the domain may not be transferred to another Registrar.
Register.it, for Change of Registrant requests, will receive authorisation to proceed from the Designated Agent appointed by the current and new registrant.
The Designated Agent of the New Registrant undertakes to ensure acceptance by the latter of the Registration Agreement of Register.it, available at the following address:
The Designated Agent of the Current Registrant, releasing Register.it from all relative liability, confirms to have informed the Current Registrant of the fact that if the latter intends to transfer the domain to another Registrar, this operation must be completed before the Change of Registrant in order to avoid the Transfer Lock Period.
Register.it will send a notification email to confirm the Change of Registrant, both to the New Registrant and the Current Registrant, within 1 working day from the date of completion of the Change of Registrant procedure, specifying the domains subject to the Change of Registrant request and a contact address for possible clarifications.
- Limitations to Change of Registrant

- the Change of Registrant has not been expressly authorised by the Current Registrant and New Registrant via their Designated Agent, or
- the domain name is subject to a dispute before competent Authorities (for purposes of example, such as UDRP procedure, URS procedure, TDRP procedure);
- Declarations and Guarantees of the Designated Agent
The Designated Agent appointed by the Current Registrant and the New Registrant as part of this Change of Registrant procedure, declares and guarantees:
- to be in possession of all documentation proving the express authorisation received from the Current Registrant and New Registrant, to act as their delegate for the purposes of the “Change of Registrant” (“Authorisations”);
- that the Authorisations will be conserved for at least two years following cancellation of a domain or in the transfer out to another Registrar;
- to provide the Authorisations on request from it (for example but not limited to the case of complaints, disputes or Audits by ICANN or Authorities), within 5 calendar days of the request by Register.it.
4.2 LIABILITY OF REGISTER.IT:The mandate given to Register.it for the DNR Service does not involve any liability, except for violations of the policies of competent Authorities due to acts attributable to Register.it.The Customer certifies that he/she knows the domain name specificities and notably that a domain name registration request is considered fulfilled if it is sent by Register.it to the competent RA and is accepted by the latter. Until the formal acceptation by the RA, the outcome of the registration procedure is uncertain. In all cases, the rules and decisions of the competent Authority will prevail.Register.it, or its agents, process the DNR Service request in rigorous respect of the chronological order in which it receives requests, provided that they are accompanied by a valid payment order. Register.it has therefore studied and realised a specific reception system, that always allows recovering all requests reception date. Register.it does not therefore guarantee that registration request is sent within a fixed number of days, or that registration request is successful. Register .it can only guarantee that, once what requested has been accomplished, it will respect, by working Monday to Friday and during working hours, the chronological order in which requests were received. In the case of paying in slip payment, Register.it will proceed to payment validation within two working days of receiving confirmation fax. Therefore it shall not be held responsible in case the domain for which registration is required, in arrears, is no more available by the competent Authority. The Client is informed that if at the time of registration, transfer and /or generally speaking during the maintenance of the service provided by Register.it it uses its own DNS instead of the DNS of Register.it, then the configuration of the DNS will be under his/her care, obligation and responsibility.
Notwithstanding the provisions of the above article 4.1.1 during the Change of Registrar/Maintainer and/or Owner/Registrar, the client may decide whether to maintain the current DNS at the time of the request or to move to those of Register.it; this operation is included in the set price for the service. Register.it will inform the Client that to complete the procedure for Change of Registrar/Maintainer and/or Owner/Registrar at least 5 (five) working days are required from receipt of the request.
In the event of misconfiguration, the Authority shall proceed with the suspension and/or cancellation of the domain.
The Customer remains solely responsible for such suspension and/or cancellation of the domain name and for any direct and indirect consequences that may arise. In the event of a request for change in the Registrar/Maintainer and/or Owner/Assignee, Register.it will fill the order after the Customer correctly fills out the specific request form. During the procedure, the Customer may decide whether to maintain the DNS current at the time of the request or switch to those of Register.it; this operation is included in the posted price of the service. Register.it informs the Customer that at least 5 (five) business days are needed to carry out the Registrar/Maintainer and/or Owner/Assignee change activities after the request is received.
Furthermore, the Customer is reminded that if the DNS are incorrectly configured, the Authority does not permit completion of the transfer. Therefore, the Customer assumes liability for the exact configuration of the DNS, in particular for .it domains.The activity of Register.it thus consists in the mere submission of Customer requests to the competent organs delegated for assignment of domain names to applicants. Therefore, the Customer certifies that he/she is aware that Register.it is unable to guarantee registration and/or change of the Registrar/Maintainer and/or change of the Owner/Assignee of the requested domain name (obligatory result), but can only guarantee that it will act with the necessary diligence so that the DNR Service request reaches the authorities responsible for registration and/or change (obligatory means). Register.it cannot be considered liable in any way if a domain name is not registered by the competent authority, without prejudice to the case where the registration request was not sent by it to the aforesaid authority. Therefore, in the case of failure to register and/or change the domain name, Register.it will not be required to return the consideration.The Customer accepts and recognizes that between the time he/she orders a domain on Register.it website and the time the registration request is submitted to the Authority, the domain might not be available anymore and therefore cannot be registered. The Customer also accepts and recognizes that the domain name can be refused or rejected by the Authority, that the domain name registration request can fail because of technical problems, delays in the procedure etc. The Customer formally accepts that Register.it cannot be held responsible in case the registration request fails and waives any and all claim of liability against Register.it in that respect.In case of requests for a change in the Registrar for domains .com, .net and .org the customer is informed that if they communicate to Register.it wrong data (especially name, surname or company name for company or organization, and admin-c email address), even if slightly different from those indicated before, the change in the Registrar procedure could be blocked by the Authorities. In that possible case, as to avoid the block in the procedure, the customer allows Register.it to unlock it communicating to the Authorities the exact data, as resultant from the public Whois register.For registration of the domains .com, .net, and .org, neither Register.it or Registry operator nor any of their employees, managers, or agents will be liable in the event of failure to complete registration. Therefore, they cannot be sued for indemnification of any damages, expenses, or costs incurred by the Customer in the course of this procedure.If, during the relationship, the Customer decides to shift the domain to another Maintainer/Registrar, Register.it shall not be required to return all or part of the consideration or, regardless, to pay any amount. Furthermore, Register.it shall be in no way liable for correct assignment of the expiration date, which will depend exclusively on the rules of the relative Authorities.The Customer agrees that the registration of a domain name may be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer, in case the competent Authority (with particular reference to Icann for domains subject to its authority) believes the present policy or the procedure adopted by the Registrar or the Registry is not consistent with the policy adopted by the Authority itself. The service may be likewise suspended, cancelled or transferred in case the competent Authority requests cancellation of mistakes found in the name registration or in the resolution of disputes concerning the Registered Name.In any event, any liability of Register.it towards the Customer and others for direct and indirect damages produced for any reason by failure to register one or more domains may not be higher than the price paid for the DNR Service.
4.3 CUSTOMER DATA:The Customer shall provide to Register.it accurate and reliable contact details including: the full name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and fax number if available; in the case of Customer that is an organization, association, or corporation the Customer he/she/itself shall provide to Register.it the name of authorized person for contact purposes, the names of the primary nameserver and secondary nameserver(s), the name, postal address, e-mail address, voice telephone number, and (where available) fax number of the technical and administrative contact.

5.1 DOMAIN NAME: The use of e-mail boxes associated with the domain or offered free of charge to the customer as specified in the previous point 3. is provided by Register.it only and exclusively in connection with the domain covered by this SO. The Customer agrees that if, during the term of this agreement, the Customer does not renew or transfers the relative Domain Name to another Maintainer/Registrar, it will become technically impossible for Register.it to provide the E-mail Service and, therefore, it will be terminated immediately, without prejudice to the right of Register.it to payment for the entire consideration envisaged for the Service.
5.2 SIZE AND NUMBER OF E-MAIL BOXES: The size limit indicated in the offer for each electronic mail box cannot be exceeded. Additional e-mail boxes may be purchased in blocks of 10 directly by the Customer through his/her own Control Panel, at the cost indicated therein.

Register.it reminds the Customer that this practice is prohibited not only by Netiquette rules but also by D.Lgs 196/03 in protection of privacy. Register.it also emphasizes that it will consider the Customer liable even if the illegal spamming activity is carried out through e-mail addresses other than those acquired from Register.it and also indirectly involves a Register.it Service or directly involves the technical structure of Register.it (e.g. unauthorized promotion of an Internet site hosted at Register.it).5.5 Register.it reserves the right to suspend the Service immediately if, in its final opinion or upon report by others, it believes that the Customer engages in activities in violation of the obligations envisaged in this article.

Register.it will cancel all the mailboxes and the data contained in it of those domains whose DNS has been configured in such a way that the MX record has been directing for at least seven days to servers other than Register.it’s, thus causing impossibility to receive mail onto Register.it since at least five days.
6 – TERM
According to the choice made by the Customer during the purchase procedure or afterwards from his toolbar, this SO, and thus the RND Service, may expire a) with or b) without tacit renewal.a) In the case of tacit renewal and credit card payment of the consideration set forth in Article 7 hereunder, they will be billed directly by Register.it to the Customer’s credit card according to the terms and conditions in effect at the time of renewal, as indicated on the toolbar, and after he is notified by e-mail. If Register.it cannot bill this charge, the agreement cannot be renewed tacitly, and it will be considered expired on the agreed expiration date. In this case, the Customer may renew the service by following the procedure illustrated below. If the service expires with tacit renewal and payment by a means other than credit card, Register.it will send an invoice to the Customer 20 days before the expiration date. This invoice must be paid in accordance with the terms set forth therein. If the Customer does not make payment by the envisaged deadline, Register.it may interrupt provision of the service at any time, without prejudice to the provisions of Article 6 of the GCS.b) If the agreement expires without tacit renewal, the Customer may ask Register.it to renew the service with this SO by using the online procedure provided by Register.it for additional, subsequent periods according to the terms appearing on the Customer’s toolbar and at the technical and economic conditions in effect at the time the service is renewed by executing the renewal procedure. At its own discretion, Register.it S.p.A. may allow the Customer to request renewal of certain services even earlier than 30 days before the expiration date. It is agreed that if early renewal is requested, the natural expiration dates of the services will be enforced. Therefore, the service will be renewed with the competent Authorities only at the time of the natural expiration date.If the criteria for assignment of the expiration date indicated in the offer (on the Register.it site) and those actually applied by the Authority at the time of subscription are inconsistent, the expiration date determined in accordance with the rules of the relevant Authorities will apply.According to the current rules of the competent Authority, change in the Registrar and the Owner for domains with the extension .COM/.NET/.ORG adds 365 days (1 year) to the original expiration date of the domain.Changes in the Maintainer and the Assignee for .IT and .EU domains alter the original expiration date of the domain, which is calculated by adding 365 days (1 year) starting from the date of the Maintainer Change, as notified by the competent Authority. For any other extension the expire date after a change in the Registrar or in the Owner will follow the rules set by the respective authoritiesIf not renewed in accordance with the forms and terms illustrated hereinabove, this SO will lawfully cease to be enforceable on the expiration date, without it being necessary for Register.it to send any notice.Register.it will give the .it domain name the status of No Provider-MNT. gTLD Domains will be held in a “Redemption-period” status. The other extensions will be provided directly to other applicants.
