5.1 Buyers/User Responsibilities-regarding domain name purchases

Nothing in this Agreement or appearing on the The Voice Business site shall be construed to imply that the seller possesses any rights to a domain name beyond those specified in the seller’s service agreement with the relevant domain name registrar or service provider.

The user understands that the purchase of a domain name does not guarantee that the domain name may be freely used by the purchaser. Among other things, trademark law, the rights of publicity and privacy, and other legal considerations may limit or even prohibit certain uses of the domain name. Buyers are advised to consult legal counsel prior to purchasing a domain name in order to determine whether it may be used for the buyer's intended purpose under applicable law.

Prior to the purchase and transfer of the domain name from seller to the buyer, it is the buyers sole responsibility to read, understand and agree to the following:

5.2 Domain name Transfer and Registration

The Voice Business makes no representation that the domain name you wish to register is capable of being registered by or for you or that it will be registered in your name. You should therefore not assume registration of your requested domain name (s) until you have been notified that it has or they have been registered. Any action tak en by you before such notification is at your own risk.

The registration and use of your domain name is subject to the terms and conditions of use applied by the relevant registrar and naming authority. You must ensure that you are aware of those terms and conditions and that you agree to comply with them. You shall have no right to bring any claim against The Voice Business in resp of refusal to register a domain name or cancellation of the domain name by the relevant naming authority.

The Voice Business shall have no liability in respect of the use by you of any domain name. Any dispute between you and any other person must be resolved between the parties concerned in such dispute. If any such dispute arises, prior to the completed transfer of the domain name from seller to buyer, we shall be entitled at our discretion and without giving any reason, to withhold, suspend or cancel the domain name. We shall also be entitled to make representations to the relevant naming authority but will not be obliged to take part in any such dispute.

The Voice Business gives no warranty that your domain name is or will continue to be available for your use or that no domain name is or will be registered which conflicts with your domain name or which otherwise affects your use of your domain name.

5.3. Transfer Process and Restrictions

The Voice Business will deliver a Domain Name Transfer Contract (DNTC) to the buyer for review via email or facsimile to the address provided by the buyer. A confirmation of receipt will be requested of the buyer by The Voice Business. The buyer has one week (7 days) to review, complete, sign, notarise and deliver the contact to The Voice Business at the address given below.

A confirmation of receipt will be delivered to the buyer by The Voice Business. Should the contract be received after 7 days have elapsed, The Voice Business reserves the right to sell the domain name to another buyer. Once it is signed and notarised, the Domain Name Transfer Contract will become a legally binding document subject to the following:

5.4 Denial of Transfer

The request to transfer a domain name registration from one Registrar to another may be denied:

  1. during the first 60 days after initial registration of the domain name with the original Registrar,
  2. in accordance with circumstances described in the Domain Name Dispute Policy,
  3. if there is a pending bankruptcy of the domain name holder,
  4. if there is a dispute over the identity of the domain name holder,
  5. by operation of law; or
  6. at the discretion of the then current Registrar.
A domain name transfer shall only take place when the owner confirms the intentions of the transferor by sending, where applicable, a reply email. If, for any reason, the owner fails to confirm any information contained in the email, the domain name transfer shall not occur.

Although all care is taken, The Voice Business is not liable for domains that become deactivated or lost during the transfer and/or renewal process.

5.5 Payments and charges

All payments must be in US Dollars, unless otherwise agreed by The Voice Business and the buyer.

If Payments are made in Australian Dollars by Australian Residents a 10% GST charge will apply, and the appropriate Tax Invoice will be issued.

Payments made via escrow.com are payable immediately upon signing the Domain Name Transfer Contact. Payments are made in advance of the transfer of the name, and once verified by escrow.com, or in the case of a local sale, The Voice Business, the seller will implement the transfer of ownership of the Domain name to the buyer. Once the transferral of ownership is completed and independently verified, the buyers funds will be released to the seller. All domain name sales will be deemed complete and final once transfer of the name from the seller to the buyer and receipt of full payment from escrow.com or from the buyer directly to the seller have been satisfactorily completed.
