You hereby declare and affirm that you are aware that the registration and management of the domain names is done subject to the registration rules (link to http://www.isoc.org.il/domains/il-domain-rules.html) of the Israel Internet Association (hereinafter: the “Association Rules” and the “Association” respectively). You hereby confirm that youhave been given sufficient opportunity to read the registration rules (link to http://www.isoc.org.il/domains/il-domain-rules.html) of the Association, that you have actually read these rules and that you agree to them. In this regard, you declare and affirm that you are aware and agree that – (1) the domain names are registered for maintenance periods of one year and – (2) you are subject to the Association Rules on dispute resolution in relation to the domain names rights.
The Association has no liability towards you for the expiration of the domain name, registration renewal and/or executing any action for which the responsibility is given to the accredited registrar.
The Association’s liability towards you in respect of registering the domain name, examining the request for registration and handling it once registration has been processed – is limited as expressly stated in the Association Rules.
You hereby declare that you are aware and agree that registration of the domain name does not entitle you to any ownership rights or other proprietary right in the domain name – save for the contractual right to maintain the domain name alone.
You will compensate and indemnify the Association against any claim, action and/or demand which stems from the registration, maintenance and use of the domain name otherwise than in accordance with the Association Rules and/or the provisions of any law.
You are aware that you have the ability to contact the Public Complaints Commissioner appointed by the Association, at: email@example.com.
The laws that apply to disputes between you and the Association are the laws of the State of Israel alone (without application to the conflict of international law rules contained therein) and exclusive juridical competence rests with the authorized courts in the Central or Tel-Aviv districts alone.
In these clauses, the “authorized registrar” means the domain-names registrar authorized by the Association to register domain names through which you have registered and/or you manage the domain name.

How Do You Verify that a Domain Name is Available?
You can verify that a domain name is available by using the query system of the Website. At the same time, the domain name registry is managed by the relevant Registry Operators. You hereby declare and confirm that the search results in the query system itself does not represent the existence or absence of your right or anyone else's right in any domain name. Even if you have checked and discovered, through the query system, that the Name is available – it is possible that parallel, or just prior, to the time of your registration,
it was registered by a third party, or that the domain name Registry was not updated on time
by the relevant registry operator. Thus, even if according to the query system the domain name is shown as registered on your behalf, although you did not fulfill the renewal terms specified in this agreement, it is possible that the query system was not updated yet.
Accordingly, you hereby declare and confirm that Domain The Net cannot guarantee that the domain name you have requested to register based on the query system will indeed be capable of, or available for, registration, or that the indication of your name as a party holding rights for the domain name in the query system can indicate on your actual rights for the domain name. Only Domain The Net's confirmation for the registration or renewal of the domain name your requested to register or to renew is an evidence to the registration or renewal of the domain name. Even if you checked and found using the query system that the domain name is available - it is possible that parallel, or just prior, to the that time it was registered by a third party, or that the domain name registry was not updated on time by the relevant registry operator.
Registering Domain Names
Domain The Net only supplies registration services, but does not manage the domain name registries. The actual registration is performed by the relevant registry operators (the registry operators for Generic Top Level Domains, and the registry operators in the various countries for the Country Code Top Level Domains).
You hereby confirm your agreement to the following: (A) The relevant registry operator has absolute discretion to accept or reject any request to register or renew a domain name, for any reason, including where it considers that registration of the domain name chosen by you is prohibited under the rules of registration by which it is bound. (B) The domain name you have chosen to register or renew will not be listed under your name until the registry operator has performed the registration or renewal. Domain The Net has no control over the registry operators’ actions and cannot guarantee when, if at all, a domain name will actually be registered under your name. (C) Domain The Net is not responsible for any action, decision, act or omission of any of the registry operators. You hereby confirm that you will have no claim, demand or action against Domain The Net due to any action, decision, act or omission committed by a registry operator – including, but without derogating from the generality of the foregoing, the rejection of a request to register or renew the registration of a domain name; in the event of a failure to actually perform the registration or the renewal of a domain name; or due to any suspension, postponement or cancellation of the registration of a domain name.
(D) Your domain name registration shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any ICANN adopted specification or policy, or pursuant to any Domain The Net's or registry's procedure not inconsistent with an ICANN adopted specification or policy, (1) to correct mistakes by Domain The Net or the applicable registry operator in registering the domain name or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the domain name.
You hereby declare and confirm that the registry operator for domain names with the suffix .biz has the right to refuse, to cancel or to transfer any domain name registration, as it shall deem fit and in its absolute discretion: (1) in order to protect the integrity and stability of the domain name registration with this suffix; (2) in order to comply with any law, regulation or directive of the enforcement agencies, during a dispute resolution procedure; (3) in order to avoid any liability, civil or criminal, on its part or on the part of its partners, its subsidiary companies and its employees and directors; (4) in order to avoid a breach of the agreement signed between the registry operator and Domain The Net regarding the registration service of domain names with this suffix; (5) in order to correct mistakes on its part or on the part of any other registrar in the process of registering the domain name. The registry operator may also suspend a domain name during the resolution of a dispute.
You hereby declare and confirm that a request for the registration of a .name domain name and email addresses be granted on a first-come, first-served basis, except for registrations granted as a result of a dispute resolution proceeding. You also declare and confirm that according to the Eligibility Requirements of this TLD, the following categories of Personal Name Registrations may be registered:
(i) The Personal Name of an individual (including a name by which the person is commonly known or a stage name);
(ii) The Personal Name of a fictional character, if you have trademark or service mark rights in that character's Personal Name;
(iii) In addition to a Personal Name registration, you may add numeric characters to the beginning or the end of your Personal Name so as to differentiate it from other Personal Names.
You hereby acknowledge that you have read, understood and that you agree to the Registry - Registrant Agreement as posted on www.icmregistry.com.
Legal Conflicts and Dispute Resolution
Domain The Net will not be a party to any legal conflicts regarding the issue of the registration of domain names. In all issues relating to the registration of Names, Domain The Net will act in accordance with the instructions of the Israeli courts and according to its obligations pursuant to agreements with the domain name registry operators.

Grant of Domain Name User Rights
If you have granted a third party the right to use your domain name, this will in no way detract from your absolute responsibility to adhere in full to your commitments owed under this Agreement to Domain The Net and to registry operators of domain names of the type registeredby you, unless you have transferred the full rights for the domain name to a third party as described in the above section. Specifically, but without detracting from the generality of the above statement, you will bear full responsibility for the payment of all sums required for the initial registration, maintenance and renewal registration of your domain name, in accordance with the amount at which such sums are set from time to time. In case Domain The Net will be found liable with any liability due to the activity with the domain name or will be damaged due to such activity, you will be obligated to indemnify Domain The Net with a full indemnification or to compensate it with a full compensation, accordingly.
Transfer of Management of a DomainName to Domain The Net
You have the right to transfer the management of your Domain Name to Domain The Net (Registrar Transfer). In order to do this, you must submit a request to transfer or renew your domain name in the designated location on the Domain The Net Website. The request must be submitted either by you or by someone identified by you during registration as your authorized representative, of whose details Domain The Net has been informed. Your request will not become officialuntil Domain The Net has verified its acceptance of your request through an email message it will send you.
If you wish to simultaneously transfer the holding rights of your domain name, and switch your domain names registrar, you must supply Domain The Net, in addition to the verification described above, with one of the following documents: (1) a valid agreement between the parties involved in the transfer of holding rights of your domain name; (2) a final decision of a recognized institution authorized to resolve domain name disputes; (3) a court order.
Before you receive the service of replacing your domain names registrar, you must commit to pay Domain The Net the relevant handling charges required at that time for performing the replacement. The replacement of a domain names registrar will only by performed at the request of the holder of the domain name, as registered in the domain names registry system in accordance with the registry operators’ instructions. You hereby affirm that you hold full license as the holder of the domain name to initiate the transfer of the management of your domain name to Domain The Net, or that the holder of the domain name has assigned you full license to perform the said transfer. Domain The Net may require of you, in its absolute discretion, to present it with documents that prove that the submitter of the request was, in fact, assigned full license to submit this request. Domain The Net is likely to reject a request to transfer to it the management of a domain name if: (1) the request is submitted before 60 (sixty) days have passed from the date on which the request to register the domain name was submitted to the original domain names registrar; (2) in the cases stipulated in the UDRP for domain names in a generic TLD (gTLDs) or in the cases stipulated in the specific dispute resolution policy of the domain name's TLD; (3) where a receiving order or liquidation order is pending against the owner of thedomain name; (4) where there is a dispute regarding the identity of the owner of the domain name; (5) in any case in which the replacement of the domain names registrar would be prohibited according to any law. In submitting the request to replace your domain names registrar, you hereby affirm that you have ascertained and verified that not one of the constraints described above exist. Payment for the transfer of your domain names registrar, if exists, will not be returned, but Domain The Net may, at its absolute discretion, transfer your payment for the benefit of another request, should you submit such a request for the replacement of one domain names registrar with another.
Once the management of your domain name has been successfully transferred to Domain The Net, the conditions of this Agreement will bind you. In the case of a registrar transfer of a domain name in a generic TLD (gTLD) or in other TLDs in which such a demand by the registry operator exists, the expiry date for registration of your domain name will be extended automatically by one year. For a domain name in a generic TLD (gTLD) the expiry date will be extended in this way only in case that the registration period of your domain name after the extension does not exceed ten years.
