The change of the name, organisation and/or email address fields of a domain name record, except for .es, .eu and .be domains, and those domains that require a specific procedure according to the legislation of the Registry involved, requires an application for a change of ownership that must be accepted by the current and the new owner through the corresponding link that will be sent to them to their contact email address, as it appears in the domain registration data.
The deadline to accept or reject the change by the current and the new owners will be 15 days from the request. After this time, the application will be cancelled.
Once the change has been confirmed by the current and new owners, the change will be processed and the domain will remain locked for 60 days, during which period it cannot be transferred to another provider. This lock does not apply to .fr domains.
In those cases in which the contact email address of the current and/or new owner was not operational at the time of the application for the change of ownership, the RSP, through an authenticated prior request, may be considered as a "Designated Agent" who can authorise the change on behalf of the aforementioned holder, provided they have obtained their express authorisation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in those cases where this is requested, the RSP will be responsible for demonstrating that they have the necessary authorisations. In addition, the RSP and/or domain name holder expressly renounce any claim for liability, contractual or extra-contractual, or damages against nicline.com, the corresponding Registry and ICANN for any action related to the appointment of the customer as "Designated Agent".
nicline.com reserves the right to deny an application for change of ownership of a domain if it is involved in an ownership dispute process, or for any other dispute, according to ICANN's rules, available for consultation at www.icann .org.
The change of ownership implies acceptance and submission by the new holder of the domain name to the applicable obligations and responsibilities of a domain name holder, an up-to-date copy of which can be viewed at http://www.nicline.com/company/legal.htm.
By confirming the change of ownership, the new owner asserts that the data provided is true as stated in the rules and policies of the "Whois Accuracy Program" set out by ICANN.

4.9 Should there be a modification in the rates as the result of a decision by the ICANN, the relevant Registrar and/or Registry or for market causes which would force nicline.com to vary the price of the operations and/or services relating to the domain names, the RSPs are to be informed of this and the prices of the operations relating to the domain names will be adjusted.
According to the discount table, the price relating to the domain names will appear in the service control panel, together with a graph on the annual reloading evolution.
The graph and the price are updated daily and on each RSP account reloading. The equivalent price in euro is also shown at the RSP control panel according to the official daily conversion rate.
4.10 Once a reloading is carried out, the customer may permanently obtain the relevant invoice through the customer control panel.

Should deadline set forth in this second email be met while misuse of the .cat domain name still exists the .cat domain name shall be deleted and remain free and open for registration.

Nicline.com shall email your domain name registration request, together with the .cat promotional code indicated to the Fundació PuntCAT. Once the code is validated, procedure will be started and the domain name registration proceedings initiated.

One .cat domain name with and without special characters cannot be registered whatsoever by two different holders so both the IDN .cat domain and the no-IDN .cat domain will belong to the same holder.
In any case RSP acknowledges and accepts that in the future the Registry might agree that these two different versions of the same .cat domain will be managed separately from one another - cost and rates included.

5.23 The RSP should obtain the authorization of the owner prior processing and dispatching to third parties the information contained in the request of a domain name .eu nd IDN .eu on behalf of EURid, and of a domain .be, on behalf of DNS.be, in the following cases:
5.24 The RSP is to obtain the commitment of the domain holder to accept any possible request from nicline.com, in order to comply with the standards or conditions laid down by the ICANN, to check the accuracy of the data published in the WHOIS of the competent registrars and where applicable, to update the information using the procedure laid down by nicline.com.
Therefore, the RSP accepts that nicline.com may directly contact the holder of the domain names or his administrative contact, provided always that the ICANN requires such an intervention. The holder is obliged to answer to any requirement from NicLine for updating the contact details provided for the domain registration. Any failure to fulfil this obligation shall constitute a material breach of the domain name agreement and be a basis for suspension or cancellation of the related domain name.
Domain names must abide by a verification procedure of their contact details on a mandatory basis, in line with that which is outlined in the ICANN regulation and policies known as “Whois Accuracy Program”.
ICANN insists of having truthful data linked to the domain name. It therefore requires the postal address, telephone number, owner's email, and the administrative and technical contacts that are linked to the domain to be in the correct format.
ICANN requires the Registrar, in this case nicline.com, to verify said information and the working order of the email address of the domain name's owner, along with that of the RSP responsible for its management, in order to establish that they are identical.
The verification procedure will be:
If the domain has been blocked as a result of non-verification, nicline.com makes a new re-sending feature of this notification available from the domain name Extranet that enables verification as soon as the domain is blocked.
Any notification that nicline.com must send to domain name owners managed via their RSP and/or Resellers will be sent with the RSP and/or Reseller information. Failing this, they will be sent as unidentified messages, with the aim of always favouring contact between the RSP and/or Reseller and the owner.
5.25 Unauthorized use of ICANN´s official logo, ICANN´s Accredited Registrar´s logo, and any all ICANN´s Accredited Registrar´s identifications shall be prohibited unless the RSP is authorized by such corporation.
Likewise, unauthorized use of Intelectual property of .MX Registry shall be prohibited. Neither The RSP nor the Wholesaler shall impersonate a Registrar, wholesaler, agent, worker, representative of .MX Registry or pretend that they are linked to him.
5.26 Contracts and Agreements governing domain registrations signed by the RSP will include among other obligations all those obligations and liabilities required by ICANN throughout this deed as well as all prospective remissions or cancellations of existing rules, regulations or policies that might be published in the future by ICANN through www.icann.org/en/general/consensus-policies.htm
In these Contracts and Agreements the RSP is urged to identify the Accredited Registrar sypplying the domain names. However should that information not be made available the RSP will be compelled to provide a way to identify the Accredited Registrar such as a link to the public Whois Database.
5.27 The RSP will be compelled to identify the Accredited Registrar managing a given domain name when requested by the client.
5.28 As an Accredited Registrar and in compliance with that which is outlined in the ICANN Expired Registration Recovery Policy (ERRP), nicline.com must send a series of notifications to the email address of the generic and territorial domain owner of .ws, .tv and .cc extensions that appears in their data registry and which is published in the public “whois” database, in order to inform them of the expiry date of their domain, as well as the deadlines and renewal fees and/or recovery of the domain name.
ICANN Policy establishes the mandatory requirement of sending three informative notifications to the owner's email address:
Regardless of these notifications, the renewal of the domain name will follow current established procedure, according to that which is outlined in the current Nicline RSP Contract.
Any notification that nicline.com must send to domain name owners managed via their RSPs and/or Resellers will be sent with the RSP and/or Reseller information. Failing this, they will be sent as unidentified messages, with the aim of always favouring contact between the RSP and/or Reseller and the domain owner.
Therefore, the RSP and the domain name owner authorise and allow nicline.com, as an authorised domain name Registrar, to send the aforementioned informative messages to the owner's email address.
The nicline.com Policy Regarding Renewal and Management of Generic Domain Names is available for consultation to Resellers and domain name owners at http://www.nicline.com/company/generic-domain-renewal-policy.htm
5.29 The RSP understands and accepts in the same way ICANN demands of nicline.com, that he or she must also offer a link to the website of said company where the regulated rights and obligations of a domain name owner appear.
To that end, they must publish a document on their website that outlines their rights and obligations as Resellers which must be made available to domain name owners. Original details of said rights and obligations published by ICANN may be consulted at http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/registrant-rights/benefits.
The RSP will be responsible for informing domain name owners of all the Policies outlined in this document, along with all mandatory ICANN policies. Said information must be visually provided to the owner via the documentation published on the RSP website.
5.30 The RSP must inform the Wholesaler of all the obligations that might arise from this contract.
5.31 arsys informs the RSP that ICANN has educational material available on domains and their different procedures, which can be viewed at http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/registrant-rights/educational.
The RSP will be responsible for communicating this information to domain name owners by publishing it on their website.
5.32 Apart from the obligations envisaged in this clause, the RSP hereby assumes any obligations arising from the other clauses herein and which are not contemplated in this clause. The RSP likewise assumes any obligations arising from current legislation and regulations and the rules applicable to the operating of the service, in particular, those that refer to the gathering of personal data, as well as to the service providers of the information society and e-commerce.

NicLine´s Whois Privacy Service provides an Identity Protection Service to conceal Holder data and/or Administrative and Technical contact data associated to .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .ws, .mobi, .cat, .tv, .cc, .es, .com.es, .nom.es, .org.es domains and the following IDN domain extensions: .com, .net, .org, .cat, .com.es, .nom.es, .org.es, .ws, .tv and .cc. by substituting such data from data taken out of nicline.com´s Virtual Office.
NicLine´s Whois Privacy Service is available for RSPs, Wholesalers, and their domain names all through Wholesalers´ Extranets.
2.2. NicLine´s Whois Privacy Service is available in two different versions:
2.3. Activating either one of the two available Whois Privacy Service versions means Holder´s data and/or the Administrative Contact and Technical Contact´s data for a given domain name as seen in the Public Whois Database will be substituted for the following data taken out of nicline.com´s Virtual Office:
2.4. The RSP shall pay for the Whois Privacy Service in advance depending on his NicLine RSP level and what kind of Whois Privacy Service he has picked:
Find below the Whois Privacy Service yearly cost:
· VIP: $4,29
· Professional: $4,59
· Basic: $4,79
· Initial: $5
Find below the Whois Privacy Complete Service yearly cost:
· VIP: $5,29
· Professional: $5,59
· Basic: $5,79
· Initial: $6
Notwithstanding the above yearly cost of the very first service activation shall be prorated so it can be adapted to this service term according to the following Clause:
2.5. The Whois Privacy Service shall be activated for annual terms with a maximum 10-year term always knowing that the service expiration date shall not outdate the domain expiration date to which it has been associated to.
However for the very first activation the service expiration date shall adapt itself to the domain expiration date to which it has been associated prorating the service yearly cost on the merits of this service term.
Also if the very first service activation is hired together with a Registrar change of the same domain the service has been associated to, the Whois Privacy Service expiration date shall be extended to match the domain new renewal date derived from this Registrar change.
2.6. All Whois Privacy Service renewals shall occur on a yearly basis from one (1) year to a maximum nine (9) years only always knowing that the service expiration date shall never outdate the domain expiration date to which the service has been associated to.
Applicable renewal rates for the Whois Privacy Service can be read on Clause 2.4 of this Annex.
Not renewing the Whois Privacy Service associated to a domain name when expiration date has come means the service shall be technically deactivated five (5) days after the service expiration date so the Holder´s real data and the Administrative Contact and Technical Contact´s real data shall become public on the Public Whois Database.
2.7. Through the Wholesaler Extranet you will be able to deactivate all Whois Privacy Services remaining active. After deactivation the Holder´s real data and the Administrative Contact and Technical Contact´s real data shall become public on the Public Whois Database.
Once deactivated the Whois Privacy Service can de reactivated back again on a free basis as long as reactivation takes place before the service expiration date.
