GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These general terms and conditions apply to the relationship between Bluesnap and the User (Users) of bluesnap.io (Service)
1. About the Service
The Service is provided by Bluesnap and is an online service that sells domains, registration and administration of domain names. Domains that can be bought through this Service can be newly registered domain names or existing domain names.
The domains that are ordered/bought are specified in the order confirmation and/or payment statement depending on the online purchase made through the Service.
The User accepts that Bluesnap may use subcontractors to provide the Service and any additional services.
In the case where a Registry requires Bluesnap to register as administrative, technical and/or billing contact for a domain Bluesnap has the right to do so.
A newly registered domain can be moved from Bluesnap no earlier than 60 days after the date of registration, unless otherwise specified in a specific registry.
In cases where a specific TLD requires a local person to register for a domain name, the User will authorise Bluesnap in the agreement to arrange such a local contact for the client, connected to the specific domain being bought.
By using this Service to buy domain names, the User agrees to the terms and conditions that from one time to another may be applicable for the respective Registry. 2. Price
Becoming a member and the use of the service costs nothing unless otherwise stipulated. The price for each domain and/or any additional products is specified separately. 3. Transfer of a domain to another registrar
Transferring domains is regulated by the respective registry, whereon the User must always take into account any specific conditions for the current registry in the case of a transfer of a domain to another registrar.
4. Renewal of a domain
The User is responsible for renewal of a domain. The price of a renewal of a domain varies between the different TLDs (Top Level Domains). Bluesnap has, regardless of the reason, no responsibility for the renewal, and shall in all cases be exempt from liability if the User for some reason fails to renew a domain. Even when the Service has automated reminders for the Users that a renewal is needed, it is incumbent upon the User to constantly stay aware of the domains that require renewal.
5. A domain's previous content
Bluesnap disclaims all liability regarding a domain's current or previous content, and a User that buys a domain through the Service must always keep Bluesnap exempt from liability in case of any disputes, claims or otherwise, concerning a domain's history, links, content, name or other attributes or connections.
All payments shall be made by invoice and bluesnap reserves the right to suspend all services in the case of late payment with immediate effect. 7. Shut down of the Service
A User who in any way abuses the service may at any time find their membership, account or service shut down. A shut down may occur without warning and without any notification to the User. A shut down which is a result of a suspected violation of the law can result in bluesnap disclosing information about the User and the abuse which occurred to the police or other legal authority or agency.
Regardless of the reason for the shutdown, a User cannot insist on any form of damages or other reimbursement or compensation from Bluesnap.
8. Availability of the Service
