These Terms of Service ("Terms") govern our relationship with users and others who interact with NameStation. By using or accessing NameStation, you agree to this Statement.
We do our best to keep NameStation safe, but we cannot guarantee it. We need your help to do that, which includes the following commitments:
Using automated tools to query our domain search pages or API is not permitted. Performing domain lookups is not an unlimited resource and we are monitoring excess requests to detect automated usage. Running automated queries will result in account deletion.
NameStation users provide their real names and information, and we need your help to keep it that way. Here are some commitments you make to us relating to registering and maintaining the security of your account:
We respect other people's rights, and expect you to do the same.
Each member is responsible for satisfying all tax, governmental reporting and other legal requirements under applicable law, including without limitation those applicable to the purchase and sale of services provided by creatives, from and by independent contractors.
Do not post a contest that contains anything that may be construed as obscene, pornographic, illegal or offensive in any way.
Do not advertise any monetary awards in your name contest. Since NameStation does not guarantee any additional awards, we cannot allow it. We have a Talent Points system to motivate contributors.
After contest expiration, contest holders will be required to chose a winner for your name contest. If you fail to choose a winning entry within 7 days of the end of the name contest, NameStation will close the contest and all the unused entries will become publicly visible.
By entering into a Public Name Contest as a contributor, you agree that you assign to NameStation, all Intellectual Property Rights which you have or may in the future have in the submissions you post.
When the request creator registers a domain name or when a Public Name Contest is closed and the winner is selected, the rights to the entries selected are transferred to the Contest Holder.
When the name contest is closed, all unregistered entries are published in the Contributed Domains Catalogue, from which the general public can freely choose to register any domain name. If the Contest Holder does not close the Contest, it will be closed automatically 7 days after it expires.
NameStation does not reserve or register domain names on behalf of its users. It is the responsibility of the Request Owner to register the domain names to secure ownership of the names selected.
The contributor hereby indemnifies and keeps indemnified the Customer, NameStation and NameStation's third party providers ("Indemnified Parties") against any loss, cost, expense or damage (including legal costs on a full indemnity basis) which the Indemnified Parties may suffer or incur as a result of a breach by the Contestant of any of the provisions of this clause.
We can change this Statement if we provide you notice (by posting the change on the NameStation Blog) and an opportunity to comment.
If you violate the letter or spirit of this Statement, or otherwise create risk or possible legal exposure for us, we can stop providing all or part of NameStation to you. We will notify you by email or at the next time you attempt to access your account. You may also delete your account or disable your application at any time.
If anyone brings a claim against us related to your actions, content or information on NameStation, you will indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all damages, losses, and expenses of any kind (including reasonable legal fees and costs) related to such claim.
