MONITORING OF CONTENT; ACCOUNT TERMINATION
In general, Giddi Business does not pre-screen User Content. Giddi Business does, however, reserve the right (but undertakes no duty) to do so. Giddi Business also reserves the right to decide whether any item of User Content is appropriate and/or complies with this Agreement. Giddi Business may remove any item of User Content and/or terminate a user’s access to this Site or the Services for posting or publishing any material in violation of this Agreement, or for otherwise violating this Agreement (as determined by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion), at any time and without prior notice. Giddi Business may also terminate a user’s access to this Site or Services if Giddi Business has reason to believe the user is a repeat offender. If Giddi Business terminates your access to this Site or Services, Giddi Business may, in its sole and absolute discretion, remove and destroy any data and files stored by you on its servers, including without limitation your User Account and all User Content.
DISCONTINUED SERVICES; END OF LIFE POLICY
Giddi Business reserves the right to cease offering or providing any of the Services at any time, for any or no reason, and without prior notice. Although Giddi Business makes great effort to maximize the lifespan of all its Services, there are times when a Service we offer will be discontinued or reach its End-of-Life ("EOL"). If that is the case, that product or service will no longer be supported by Giddi Business, in any way, effective on the EOL date.
Notice and Migration. When applicable, Giddi Business will attempt to notify you thirty (30) days in advance of the EOL date. It is your responsibility to take all necessary steps to replace the Service by migrating to a new Service before the EOL date, or by entirely ceasing reliance on said Service before the EOL date. In either case, Giddi Business will either offer a comparable Service for you to migrate to for the remainder of the term of your purchase or a prorated refund, to be determined by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion. When available, Giddi Business may, with or without notice to you, migrate you to the most up-to-date version of the Service. You agree to take full responsibility for any and all loss or damage arising from any such migration.
No Liability. Giddi Business will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of any of the Services we may offer or facilitate access to.
FEES & PAYMENTS
Your payment method may be charged by one of our affiliated entities. In some instances your transaction may be processed by an entity within the disclosed country that is affiliated with our local payment service provider, and subject to the provisions of our Privacy Policy.
(A) GENERAL TERMS, INCLUDING AUTOMATIC RENEWAL TERMS
Payment Due at Time of Order; Non-Refundable. At the time you order Services, you are required to pay all amounts. Payments are non-refundable unless otherwise noted in the Refund Policy.
Price Changes. Giddi Business reserves the right to change its prices and fees at any time. Any changes to prices and fees for our Services will be posted on the Site and effective immediately with or without notice to you. If the term of Services you have purchased is for a period of months or years, changes in prices and fees shall be effective when the Services come up for renewal as further described below.
Payment Types. Except as prohibited in any product-specific agreement, you may be able to pay for Services by using any of the following “Payment Methods”: (i) valid credit card; (ii) electronic payment from your personal or business checking account (as defined below); (iii) PayPal, (iv) International Payment Option (as defined below) or (v) via in-store credit balances, if applicable (and as defined below), (individually referred to as a “Payment Method”). You are solely responsible for keeping a current, valid Payment Method on file if you have any active Services in your User Account. 
Refunds Issued. Where refunds are issued to your Payment Method, Giddi Business's issuance of a refund receipt is only confirmation that Giddi Business has submitted your refund to the Payment Method charged at the time of the original sale. Giddi Business has no control over when a refund will be applied towards your Payment Method’s available balance. The payment provider and/or individual issuing bank associated with your Payment Method establish and regulate the time frames for posting refunds.
Auto-Renewal Terms. In order to ensure that you do not experience an interruption or loss of Services, all Services are offered on a default automatic renewal. You may view or change or disable your automatic renewal settings at any time by logging into your User Account. Other than as required by applicable law, Giddi Business does not retain hard copies or electronic versions of mandate, standing order or standing instruction forms and/or any signed consents relating to your usage of our automatic renewal services, and we are therefore unable to provide any such document upon request. 
Except for reasons described below in this Section, automatic renewal automatically renews the applicable service upon expiration of the then current term for a renewal period equal in time to the most recent service period (except for domain names which may renew for the original service period). However, in the event renewal with the Payment Method on file fails, Giddi Business may attempt to renew the applicable service for a period less than the original subscription period to the extent necessary for the transaction to succeed. Alternatively, Giddi Business may attempt to charge the Payment Method(s) designated as "backup" in your User Account. 
Renewals will be charged at Giddi Business’s then current rates, which you acknowledge and agree may be higher or lower than the rates for the original service period. If you do not wish for any service to automatically renew, you may elect to cancel renewal, in which case, your services will terminate upon expiration of the then current term, unless you manually renew your services prior to that date and Giddi Business shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.
Giddi Business may also participate in “recurring billing programs” or “account updater services” supported by your credit card provider (and ultimately dependent on your bank’s participation). If we are unable to successfully charge your existing payment method, your credit card provider (or your bank) may notify us of updates to your credit card number and/or expiration date, or they may automatically charge your new credit card on our behalf without notification to us. In accordance with recurring billing program requirements, in the event that we are notified of an update to your credit card number and/or expiration date, Giddi Business may automatically update your payment profile on your behalf. Giddi Business makes no guarantees that we will request or receive updated credit card information. You acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to modify and maintain your Account Settings, including but not limited to (i) cancelling products and (ii) ensuring your associated Payment Method(s) are current and valid. Further, you acknowledge and agree that your failure to do so, may result in the interruption or loss of services, and Giddi Business shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.
If for any reason Giddi Business is unable to charge your Payment Method for the full amount owed, or if Giddi Business receives notification of a chargeback, reversal, payment dispute, or is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, Giddi Business may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment, including but not limited to, immediate cancellation or transfer, without notice to you, of any domain names or Services registered or renewed on your behalf. 
Giddi Business may offer product-level pricing in various currencies. The transaction will be processed in the selected currency and the pricing displayed during the checkout process will be the actual amount submitted for payment. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charge, which may be added to the final amount that appears on your bank statement or post as a separate amount. Please check with the issuer of your Payment Method for details. In addition, regardless of the selected currency, you acknowledge and agree that you may be charged Value Added Tax ("VAT"), Goods and Services Tax ("GST"), or other localized fees and/or taxes, based on your bank and/or the country indicated in your billing address section.
(B) REFUND POLICY
Products and Services available for refunds are described here (“Refund Policy”).
1. New registrations/backorders within any Add-Grace Period (if any), less one business day, for the greater of one domain name or 10% of your registrations in any calendar or billing month (whichever is used by the domain’s Registry Operator)
2. Transfers In that do not complete
3. Marketplace/Premium & Premium Auctions, if and only if the domain is unable to be transferred into your Giddi Business account
You agree that Giddi Business, at our sole discretion and at any time, may pause, terminate, or change the Refund Policy without notice, for any reason, and with no commitment to refund or credit any fees previously paid to Giddi Business.
(C) IN-STORE CREDIT BALANCES
In the event that your Account contains an in-store credit balance: (1) you may apply any available credit balance to any future purchase in your User Account; and (2) you authorize Giddi Business to apply any available credit balance to any outstanding administrative fees, chargebacks, or other fees related to your User Account. In the event that Giddi Business is unable to successfully charge either the Payment Method associated with a specific Service in your account or your backup Payment Method(s) when processing Service renewals, Giddi Business may use any available in-store credit balance if there are enough funds to cover the entire transaction. Regardless of the amount of in-store credit available in your account, Giddi Business is not responsible for the loss of products resulting from an inability to collect funds from your Payment Methods or the in-store credit. In-store credits will be applied based on the currency selected in the shopping cart at the time of purchase (or renewal). If additional funds are required to complete the purchase or renewal, credits held in a non-selected currency will be converted using Giddi Business’s daily exchange rate based on the age of the credit (oldest to newest) until (i) enough funds are allocated to complete the transaction, or (ii) there is no available balance left in your account. You understand and agree that at the time of conversion, Giddi Business may also impose an additional administrative fee.
You can verify your available in-store credit balance at any time through your User Account. You acknowledge that in-store credit balances are non-transferrable, may only be used in the User Account in which they were acquired and may expire. Complimentary in-store credits will expire two years after issuance. In the event that Giddi Business terminates your User Account, you acknowledge and agree that any remaining available in-store credit balance will be forfeited.
You also acknowledge that funds available in your in-store credit balance will be held by Giddi Business and will not accrue or pay interest for your behalf. To the extent any interest may accrue, Giddi Business is entitled to receive and keep any such amounts to cover costs associated with supporting the in-store credit balance functionality.
(D) EXPIRED DOMAIN NAME PURCHASES
For expired domains names purchased through your account, you agree that you are responsible for payment immediately upon auction close for the successful bid amount via any valid payment method associated with the account, will be charged immediately following the auction close. If we are unable to collect payment, you may lose the rights to purchase the domain name.
(E) ADMINISTRATIVE FEES
Giddi Business also reserves the right to charge you reasonable “administrative” fees" of N100,000.00 (One hundred Thousand Naira) per hour, minimum of one hour, for (i) tasks Giddi Business may perform outside the normal scope of its Services, (ii) additional time and/or costs Giddi Business may incur in providing its Services, and/or (iii) your noncompliance with this Agreement (as determined by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion). Typical administrative or processing fee scenarios include, but are not limited to (i) customer service issues that require additional personal time or attention; (ii) UDRP actions(s) in connection with your domain name(s) and/or disputes that require accounting or legal services, whether performed by Giddi Business staff or by outside firms retained by Giddi Business; (iii) recouping any and all costs and fees, including the cost of Services, incurred by Giddi Business as the results of chargebacks or other payment disputes brought by you, your bank or Payment Method processor.

DISPUTES, BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS A+ND CLASS ARBITRATIONS
(A) Disputes. The terms of this Section shall apply to all Disputes between you and Giddi Business, except for disputes governed by the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy referenced above and available here. For the purposes of this Section, “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, or action between you and Giddi Business arising under or relating to any Giddi Business Services, Giddi Business’s websites, this Agreement, or any other transaction involving you and Giddi Business, whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis, and shall be interpreted to be given the broadest meaning allowable under law. YOU AND GIDDI BUSINESS AGREE THAT “DISPUTE” AS DEFINED IN THESE TERMS SHALL NOT INCLUDE ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BY YOU OR GIDDI BUSINESS FOR (I) TRADE SECRET MISAPPROPRIATION, (II) PATENT INFRINGEMENT, (III) COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OR MISUSE, AND (IV) TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT OR DILUTION. Moreover, notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, a court, not the arbitrator, may decide if a claim falls within one of these four exceptions.
(B) Binding Arbitration. You and Giddi Business further agree: (i) to arbitrate all Disputes between the parties pursuant to the provisions in this Agreement; (ii) this Agreement memorializes a transaction in interstate commerce; (iii) the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1, et seq.) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Section; and (iv) this Section shall survive termination of these Terms. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JUDGE OR JURY IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND YOUR GROUNDS FOR APPEAL ARE LIMITED. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court sitting in proper jurisdiction, as limited by the Limitation of Liability set forth in this Agreement and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. In addition, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties.
(C) Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring an individual action in the small claims court of your state or municipality if the action is within that court’s jurisdiction and is pending only in that court.
(D) Dispute Notice.In the event of a Dispute, you or Giddi Business must first send to the other party a notice of the Dispute that shall include a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to Giddi Business must be sent by Mail addressed to Giddi Business, Ltd, 131, Obafemi Awolowo Way, Lagos, Nigeria with email copy to business@Giddibusiness.com (collectively, the “Giddi Business Notice Address”). Any Dispute Notice to you will be sent by US Mail and by email to the most recent addresses we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. If Giddi Business and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or Giddi Business may commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Section. Following submission and receipt of the Dispute Notice, each of us agrees to act in good faith to seek to resolve the Dispute before commencing arbitration.
(E) WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS. YOU AND GIDDI BUSINESS AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE CLASS ACTIONS, OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS. NEITHER YOU NOR Giddi Business WILL SEEK TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A CLASS ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OF PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING WILL BE COMBINED WITH ANOTHER WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES TO ALL AFFECTED ARBITRATIONS OR PROCEEDINGS.
(F) Arbitration Procedure. If a party elects to commence arbitration, the arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the AAA (“AAA Rules”) in conjunction with the rules set forth in these Terms, except that AAA may not administer any multiple claimant or class arbitration, as the parties agree that the arbitration shall be limited to the resolution only of individual claims. The AAA Rules are at www.adr.org. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in this Agreement, the rules set forth in this Agreement shall govern. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by this Agreement. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also have exclusive authority to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of the arbitration agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is for (i) trade secret misappropriation, (ii) patent infringement, (iii) copyright infringement or misuse, or (iv) trademark infringement or dilution, which are excluded from the definition of “Disputes” as stated above. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. You may choose to engage in arbitration hearings by telephone. Arbitration hearings not conducted by telephone shall take place in Lagos, Nigeria.
(G) Initiation of Arbitration Proceeding. If either you or Giddi Business decide to arbitrate a Dispute, we agree to the following procedure:
1. Write a Demand for Arbitration. The demand must include a description of the Dispute and the amount of damages sought to be recovered. You can find a copy of a Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org (“Demand for Arbitration: Consumer Arbitration Rules”).
 (H) Hearing Format. In all hearing formats, the arbitrator shall issue a written decision that explains the essential findings and conclusions on which an award, if any, is based. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Giddi Business or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Giddi Business is entitled. The discovery or exchange of non-privileged information relevant to the Dispute may be allowed during the arbitration.
(I) Arbitration Fees and Payments.
The AAA rules will govern payment of filing fees and the AAA’s and arbitrator’s fees and expenses.
(J) Claims or Disputes Must be Filed Within One Year. To the extent permitted by law, any claim or dispute relating to this Agreement or to Giddi Business’s provision of the Site and/or Services must be filed within one year in small claims or in arbitration. The one-year period begins when the claim or Notice of Dispute first could be filed. If not filed within one year, the claim or dispute will be permanently barred.
(K) Amendments to this Section. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, you and Giddi Business agree that if Giddi Business makes any future amendments to the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions (other than a change to Giddi Business’s contact information) in this Agreement, then Giddi Business will notify you and you will have thirty (30) days from the date of notice to affirmatively opt-out of any such amendments. If you affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any Dispute between us in accordance with the language of this Section as stated in the then-current Agreement, without any of the proposed amendments governing. If you do not affirmatively opt-out of any future amendments, you will be deemed to have consented to any such future amendments.
(L) Severability. If any provision in this Section is found to be unenforceable, that provision shall be severed with the remainder of this Agreement remaining in full force and effect. The foregoing shall not apply to the prohibition against class or representative actions; if the prohibition against class or representative actions is found to be unenforceable, this entire Section shall be null and void. The terms of this Section shall otherwise survive any termination of the Agreement.
(M) Exclusive Venue for Other Controversies; Waiver of Jury Trial. Giddi Business and you agree that any controversy excluded from the dispute resolution procedure and class action waiver provisions in this Section (other than an individual action filed in small claims court) shall be filed only in an appropriate state or federal court in Abuja, Nigeria. Each party hereby irrevocably and unconditionally consents and submits to the exclusive jurisdiction of such courts for any such controversy. You also agree to waive the right to trial by jury in any such action or proceeding.
UNCLAIMED PROPERTY; DORMANCY CHARGES
Please be advised that if a customer has an outstanding account balance (a credit positive balance) for three (3) years or more for any reason, and (i) Giddi Business is unable to issue payment to such customer or (ii) Giddi Business issued payment to such customer in the form of a paper check, but the check was never cashed, then Giddi Business shall turn over such account balance to the State of Illinois in accordance with state law. You acknowledge and agree that in either case (i) or (ii) above, Giddi Business may withhold a dormancy charge in an amount equal to the lesser of N25000.00 or the total outstanding account balance associated with such customer.
SUCCESSORS AND ASSIGNS
This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their respective heirs, successors and assigns.
NO THIRD PARTY BENEFICIARIES
Nothing in this Agreement shall be deemed to confer any third-party rights or benefits.
TITLES & HEADINGS; INDEPENDENT COVENANTS; SEVERABILITY
The titles and headings of this Agreement are for convenience and ease of reference only and shall not be utilized in any way to construe or interpret the agreement of the parties as otherwise set forth herein. Each covenant and agreement in this Agreement shall be construed for all purposes to be a separate and independent covenant or agreement. If a court of competent jurisdiction holds any provision (or portion of a provision) of this Agreement to be illegal, invalid, or otherwise unenforceable, the remaining provisions (or portions of provisions) of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby and shall be found to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.

If Giddi Business terminates your access to this Site or Services, Giddi Business may, in its sole and absolute discretion, remove and destroy any data and files stored by you on its servers, including without limitation your User Account and all User Content.
DISCONTINUED SERVICES; END OF LIFE POLICY
Giddi Business reserves the right to cease offering or providing any of the Services at any time, for any or no reason, and without prior notice. Although Giddi Business makes great effort to maximize the lifespan of all its Services, there are times when a Service we offer will be discontinued or reach its End-of-Life ("EOL"). If that is the case, that product or service will no longer be supported by Giddi Business, in any way, effective on the EOL date.
Notice and Migration. When applicable, Giddi Business will attempt to notify you thirty (30) days in advance of the EOL date. It is your responsibility to take all necessary steps to replace the Service by migrating to a new Service before the EOL date, or by entirely ceasing reliance on said Service before the EOL date. In either case, Giddi Business will either offer a comparable Service for you to migrate to for the remainder of the term of your purchase or a prorated refund, to be determined by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion. When available, Giddi Business may, with or without notice to you, migrate you to the most up-to-date version of the Service. You agree to take full responsibility for any and all loss or damage arising from any such migration.
No Liability. Giddi Business will not be liable to you or any third party for any modification, suspension, or discontinuance of any of the Services we may offer or facilitate access to.
FEES & PAYMENTS
Your payment method may be charged by one of our affiliated entities. In some instances, your transaction may be processed by an entity within the disclosed country that is affiliated with our local payment service provider, and subject to the provisions of our Privacy Policy.
(A) GENERAL TERMS, INCLUDING AUTOMATIC RENEWAL TERMS
Payment Due at Time of Order; Non-Refundable. At the time you order Services, you are required to pay all amounts. Payments are non-refundable unless otherwise noted in the Refund Policy.
Price Changes. Giddi Business reserves the right to change its prices and fees at any time. Any changes to prices and fees for our Services will be posted on the Site and effective immediately with or without notice to you. If the term of Services you have purchased is for a period of months or years, changes in prices and fees shall be effective when the Services come up for renewal as further described below.
Payment Types. Except as prohibited in any product-specific agreement, you may be able to pay for Services by using any of the following “Payment Methods”: (i) valid credit card; (ii) electronic payment from your personal or business checking account (as defined below); (iii) PayPal, (iv) International Payment Option (as defined below) or (v) via in-store credit balances, if applicable (and as defined below), (individually referred to as a “Payment Method”). You are solely responsible for keeping a current, valid Payment Method on file if you have any active Services in your User Account. 
Refunds Issued. Where refunds are issued to your Payment Method, Giddi Business's issuance of a refund receipt is only confirmation that Giddi Business has submitted your refund to the Payment Method charged at the time of the original sale. Giddi Business has no control over when a refund will be applied towards your Payment Method’s available balance. The payment provider and/or individual issuing bank associated with your Payment Method establish and regulate the time frames for posting refunds.
Auto-Renewal Terms. In order to ensure that you do not experience an interruption or loss of Services, all Services are offered on a default automatic renewal. You may view or change or disable your automatic renewal settings at any time by logging into your User Account. Other than as required by applicable law, Giddi Business does not retain hard copies or electronic versions of mandate, standing order or standing instruction forms and/or any signed consents relating to your usage of our automatic renewal services, and we are therefore unable to provide any such document upon request. 
Except for reasons described below in this Section, automatic renewal automatically renews the applicable service upon expiration of the then current term for a renewal period equal in time to the most recent service period (except for domain names which may renew for the original service period). However, in the event renewal with the Payment Method on file fails, Giddi Business may attempt to renew the applicable service for a period less than the original subscription period to the extent necessary for the transaction to succeed. Alternatively, Giddi Business may attempt to charge the Payment Method(s) designated as "backup" in your User Account. 
Renewals will be charged at Giddi Business’s then current rates, which you acknowledge and agree may be higher or lower than the rates for the original service period. If you do not wish for any service to automatically renew, you may elect to cancel renewal, in which case, your services will terminate upon expiration of the then current term, unless you manually renew your services prior to that date and Giddi Business shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.
Giddi Business may also participate in “recurring billing programs” or “account updater services” supported by your credit card provider (and ultimately dependent on your bank’s participation). If we are unable to successfully charge your existing payment method, your credit card provider (or your bank) may notify us of updates to your credit card number and/or expiration date, or they may automatically charge your new credit card on our behalf without notification to us. In accordance with recurring billing program requirements, in the event that we are notified of an update to your credit card number and/or expiration date, Giddi Business may automatically update your payment profile on your behalf. Giddi Business makes no guarantees that we will request or receive updated credit card information. You acknowledge and agree that it is your sole responsibility to modify and maintain your Account Settings, including but not limited to (i) cancelling products and (ii) ensuring your associated Payment Method(s) are current and valid. Further, you acknowledge and agree that your failure to do so, may result in the interruption or loss of services, and Giddi Business shall not be liable to you or any third party regarding the same.
If for any reason Giddi Business is unable to charge your Payment Method for the full amount owed, or if Giddi Business receives notification of a chargeback, reversal, payment dispute, or is charged a penalty for any fee it previously charged to your Payment Method, Giddi Business may pursue all available lawful remedies in order to obtain payment, including but not limited to, immediate cancellation or transfer, without notice to you, of any domain names or Services registered or renewed on your behalf. 
Giddi Business may offer product-level pricing in various currencies. The transaction will be processed in the selected currency and the pricing displayed during the checkout process will be the actual amount submitted for payment. For certain Payment Methods, the issuer of your Payment Method may charge you a foreign transaction fee or other charge, which may be added to the final amount that appears on your bank statement or post as a separate amount. Please check with the issuer of your Payment Method for details. In addition, regardless of the selected currency, you acknowledge and agree that you may be charged Value Added Tax ("VAT"), Goods and Services Tax ("GST"), or other localized fees and/or taxes, based on your bank and/or the country indicated in your billing address section.
(B) REFUND POLICY
Products and Services available for refunds are described here (“Refund Policy”).
1. New registrations/backorders within any Add-Grace Period (if any), less one business day, for the greater of one domain name or 10% of your registrations in any calendar or billing month (whichever is used by the domain’s Registry Operator)
2. Transfers In that do not complete
3. Marketplace/Premium & Premium Auctions, if and only if the domain is unable to be transferred into your Giddi Business account
You agree that Giddi Business, at our sole discretion and at any time, may pause, terminate, or change the Refund Policy without notice, for any reason, and with no commitment to refund or credit any fees previously paid to Giddi Business.
(C) IN-STORE CREDIT BALANCES
In the event that your Account contains an in-store credit balance: (1) you may apply any available credit balance to any future purchase in your User Account; and (2) you authorize Giddi Business to apply any available credit balance to any outstanding administrative fees, chargebacks, or other fees related to your User Account. In the event that Giddi Business is unable to successfully charge either the Payment Method associated with a specific Service in your account or your backup Payment Method(s) when processing Service renewals, Giddi Business may use any available in-store credit balance if there are enough funds to cover the entire transaction. Regardless of the amount of in-store credit available in your account, Giddi Business is not responsible for the loss of products resulting from an inability to collect funds from your Payment Methods or the in-store credit. In-store credits will be applied based on the currency selected in the shopping cart at the time of purchase (or renewal). If additional funds are required to complete the purchase or renewal, credits held in a non-selected currency will be converted using Giddi Business’s daily exchange rate based on the age of the credit (oldest to newest) until (i) enough funds are allocated to complete the transaction, or (ii) there is no available balance left in your account. You understand and agree that at the time of conversion, Giddi Business may also impose an additional administrative fee.
You can verify your available in-store credit balance at any time through your User Account. You acknowledge that in-store credit balances are non-transferrable, may only be used in the User Account in which they were acquired and may expire. Complimentary in-store credits will expire two years after issuance. In the event that Giddi Business terminates your User Account, you acknowledge and agree that any remaining available in-store credit balance will be forfeited.
You also acknowledge that funds available in your in-store credit balance will be held by Giddi Business and will not accrue or pay interest for your behalf. To the extent any interest may accrue, Giddi Business is entitled to receive and keep any such amounts to cover costs associated with supporting the in-store credit balance functionality.
(D) EXPIRED DOMAIN NAME PURCHASES
For expired domains names purchased through your account, you agree that you are responsible for payment immediately upon auction close for the successful bid amount via any valid payment method associated with the account, will be charged immediately following the auction close. If we are unable to collect payment, you may lose the rights to purchase the domain name.
(E) ADMINISTRATIVE FEES
Giddi Business also reserves the right to charge you reasonable “administrative” fees" of $100 (One Hundred US dollars) per hour, minimum of one hour, for (i) tasks Giddi Business may perform outside the normal scope of its Services, (ii) additional time and/or costs Giddi Business may incur in providing its Services, and/or (iii) your noncompliance with this Agreement (as determined by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion). Typical administrative or processing fee scenarios include, but are not limited to (i) customer service issues that require additional personal time or attention; (ii) UDRP actions(s) in connection with your domain name(s) and/or disputes that require accounting or legal services, whether performed by Giddi Business staff or by outside firms retained by Giddi Business; (iii) recouping any and all costs and fees, including the cost of Services, incurred by Giddi Business as the results of chargebacks or other payment disputes brought by you, your bank or Payment Method processor. These administrative fees or processing fees will be billed to the Payment Method you have on file with Giddi Business.
ADDITIONAL RESERVATION OF RIGHTS
Giddi Business expressly reserves the right to deny, cancel, terminate, suspend, lock, or modify access to (or control of) any User Account or Services (including the right to cancel or transfer any domain name registration) for any reason (as determined by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion), including but not limited to the following: (i) to correct mistakes made by Giddi Business in offering or delivering any Services (including any domain name registration), (ii) to protect the integrity and stability of, and correct mistakes made by, any domain name registry or registrar, (iii) to assist with our fraud and abuse detection and prevention efforts, (iv) to comply with court orders against you and/or your domain name or website and applicable local, state, national and international laws, rules and regulations, (v) to comply with requests of law enforcement, including subpoena requests, (vi) to comply with any dispute resolution process, (vii) to defend any legal action or threatened legal action without consideration for whether such legal action or threatened legal action is eventually determined to be with or without merit, (viii) to avoid any civil or criminal liability on the part of Giddi Business, its officers, directors, employees and agents, as well as Giddi Business's affiliates, including, but not limited to, instances where you have sued or threatened to sue Giddi Business, or (ix) to respond to an excessive amount of complaints related in any way to your User Account, domain name(s), or content on your website that could result in damage to Giddi Business’s business, operations, reputation or shareholders.
Giddi Business expressly reserves the right to review any User Account for excessive space and bandwidth utilization, and to terminate or apply additional fees to those User Accounts that exceed allowed levels.
Giddi Business expressly reserves the right to terminate, without notice to you, any and all Services where, in Giddi Business's sole discretion, you are harassing or threatening Giddi Business and/or any of Giddi Business's employees.

DISPUTES, BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AND WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS
(A) Disputes. The terms of this Section shall apply to all Disputes between you and Giddi Business, except for disputes governed by the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy referenced above and available here. For the purposes of this Section, “Dispute” shall mean any dispute, claim, or action between you and Giddi Business arising under or relating to any Giddi Business Services, Giddi Business’s websites, this Agreement, or any other transaction involving you and Giddi Business, whether in contract, warranty, misrepresentation, fraud, tort, intentional tort, statute, regulation, ordinance, or any other legal or equitable basis, and shall be interpreted to be given the broadest meaning allowable under law. YOU AND Giddi Business AGREE THAT “DISPUTE” AS DEFINED IN THESE TERMS SHALL NOT INCLUDE ANY CLAIM OR CAUSE OF ACTION BY YOU OR Giddi Business FOR (I) TRADE SECRET MISAPPROPRIATION, (II) PATENT INFRINGEMENT, (III) COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT OR MISUSE, AND (IV) TRADEMARK INFRINGEMENT OR DILUTION. Moreover, notwithstanding anything else in these Terms, a court, not the arbitrator, may decide if a claim falls within one of these four exceptions.
(B) Binding Arbitration. You and Giddi Business further agree: (i) to arbitrate all Disputes between the parties pursuant to the provisions in this Agreement; (ii) this Agreement memorializes a transaction in interstate commerce; (iii) the Federal Arbitration Act (9 U.S.C. §1, et seq.) governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Section; and (iv) this Section shall survive termination of these Terms. ARBITRATION MEANS THAT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JUDGE OR JURY IN A COURT PROCEEDING AND YOUR GROUNDS FOR APPEAL ARE LIMITED. The arbitrator may award you the same damages as a court sitting in proper jurisdiction, as limited by the Limitation of Liability set forth in this Agreement and may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favour of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party’s individual claim. In addition, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and enforceable by any court with jurisdiction over the parties.
(C) Small Claims Court. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you may bring an individual action in the small claims court of your state or municipality if the action is within that court’s jurisdiction and is pending only in that court.
(D) Dispute Notice.In the event of a Dispute, you or Giddi Business must first send to the other party a notice of the Dispute that shall include a written statement that sets forth the name, address and contact information of the party giving it, the facts giving rise to the Dispute, and the relief requested (the “Dispute Notice”). The Dispute Notice to Giddi Business must be sent by Nigeria Mail addressed to Giddi Business, 131 Obafemi Awolowo Way, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria  with email copy to business@giddibusiness.com (collectively, the “Giddi Business Notice Address”). Any Dispute Notice to you will be sent by Nigeria Mail and by email to the most recent addresses we have on file or otherwise in our records for you. If Giddi Business and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the Dispute within sixty (60) days after the Dispute Notice is received, you or Giddi Business may commence an arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Section. Following submission and receipt of the Dispute Notice, each of us agrees to act in good faith to seek to resolve the Dispute before commencing arbitration.
(E) WAIVER OF CLASS ACTIONS AND CLASS ARBITRATIONS. YOU AND GIDDI BUSINESS AGREE THAT EACH PARTY MAY BRING DISPUTES AGAINST THE OTHER PARTY ONLY IN AN INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION FEDERAL OR STATE CLASS ACTIONS, OR CLASS ARBITRATIONS. NEITHER YOU NOR Giddi Business WILL SEEK TO HAVE ANY DISPUTE HEARD AS A CLASS ACTION, PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION, OR IN ANY OTHER PROCEEDING IN WHICH EITHER PARTY ACTS OF PROPOSES TO ACT IN A REPRESENTATIVE CAPACITY. NO ARBITRATION OR OTHER PROCEEDING WILL BE COMBINED WITH ANOTHER WITHOUT THE PRIOR WRITTEN CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES TO ALL AFFECTED ARBITRATIONS OR PROCEEDINGS.
(F) Arbitration Procedure. If a party elects to commence arbitration, the arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) and governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the AAA (“AAA Rules”) in conjunction with the rules set forth in these Terms, except that AAA may not administer any multiple claimant or class arbitration, as the parties agree that the arbitration shall be limited to the resolution only of individual claims. The AAA Rules are at www.adr.org. If there is a conflict between the AAA Rules and the rules set forth in this Agreement, the rules set forth in this Agreement shall govern. All Disputes shall be resolved by a single neutral arbitrator, and both parties shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate in the selection of the arbitrator. The arbitrator is bound by this Agreement. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to, any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall also have exclusive authority to rule on his or her own jurisdiction, including any objections with respect to the existence, scope, or validity of the arbitration agreement or to the arbitrability of any claim or counterclaim. Notwithstanding this broad delegation of authority to the arbitrator, a court may determine the limited question of whether a claim or cause of action is for (i) trade secret misappropriation, (ii) patent infringement, (iii) copyright infringement or misuse, or (iv) trademark infringement or dilution, which are excluded from the definition of “Disputes” as stated above. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity.

DESCRIPTION OF THE SERVICES
The Giddi Business domain name marketplace service includes the buying and selling of registered domain names via auction or fixed price transactions. This service does not include the buying and selling of any website content. Giddi Business is not an auctioneer or an escrow agent, nor is Giddi Business the owner of the domain names listed on the website. Giddi Business acts here neither as a buyer nor seller, neither as a lessee nor lessor, nor as the representative of any party, and assumes no responsibility for the contents of a seller’s domain listing or a buyer’s offer for a domain. Giddi Business has no control over the quality, safety or legality of the domain names listed, nor the accuracy of any statements made by any buyer or seller. 
Our auction rules are subject to change from time to time, and are incorporated herein by reference. Domain names listed for a fixed price may be withdrawn at any time by Seller or by Giddi Business. Domain names listed for auction may be withdrawn at any time by Giddi Business; the Seller may withdraw the domain name only before a Buyer purchases the domain via the “buy now” option, or a bid is placed that meets or exceeds the minimum bid or reserve price. 
General. You authorize Giddi Business to perform tasks on your behalf in order to complete the transaction. Giddi Business is not a bank, and any transactions constitute a payment processing service rather than a banking service. You further acknowledge and agree that Giddi Business is not acting as a trustee, fiduciary, or escrow agent with respect to your funds.
Giddi Business is not responsible and disclaims all liability in the event that the domain name transaction fails to complete due to breach by the Buyer or Seller or failure of the Buyer or Seller to complete the transaction. Buyer does not obtain any rights in the registration of a domain name until completion of the transaction.
Giddi Business may screen domain names prior to listing and may exclude, in our sole discretion, any domain name for any reason, including, but not limited to: a) violation of this Agreement or the UTOS; b) violation of any of Giddi Business’s other policies and/or agreements; or c) infringement, or potential infringement, of any third party right, law or regulation.
Designated Agent. FOR THE PURPOSE OF FACILITATING THE CHANGE OF REGISTRANT INFORMATION DURING AND AFTER THE SALE OF ANY DOMAIN NAME, WHETHER AS BUYER OR SELLER, AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH ICANN'S CHANGE OF REGISTRANT POLICY, YOU EXPLICITLY AGREE TO APPOINT GIDDI BUSINESS AS YOUR DESIGNATED AGENT FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF EXPLICITLY CONSENTING TO MATERIAL CHANGES OF REGISTRATION CONTACT INFORMATION ON YOUR BEHALF. “DESIGNATED AGENT” MEANS AN INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY THAT THE PRIOR REGISTRANT AND/OR NEW REGISTRANT EXPLICITLY AUTHORIZES TO APPROVE A CHANGE OF REGISTRANT REQUEST ON ITS BEHALF.
Auction Run Times. You understand and agree that if a bid is placed within five (5) minutes of the auction closing, then the time on the auction will automatically be increased by five minutes from the time of the bid. Accordingly, an auction will not close until the last five (5) minutes of an auction run without any bids being placed.
Payment Methods. Giddi Business reserves the right to require any payment method for any transaction, in its sole discretion. Transactions with a selling price exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) may require, at Giddi Business’s option, immediate and irreversible method of payment such as by wire.
Escrow. At Giddi Business’s option, your transaction may be handled by a third-party escrow service of Giddi Business’s designation. Accordingly, in order to complete the transaction you will be required to read, understand, acknowledge and agree to the terms of service of that escrow service, which are incorporated herein by reference. Giddi Business may disclose personally identifiable information to said third party escrow service to facilitate the transaction. Giddi Business will remit payment of the purchase price, less the applicable commission and fees, to the Seller no sooner than 10 days, and no later than 14 days, after receiving funds from the Buyer, except in the event of a dispute or where the payment is suspected to be fraudulent.
OBLIGATIONS OF BUYER AND SELLER
You agree to provide accurate, current, and complete information on any and all forms and requests for information provided by Giddi Business as part of this Service. Giddi Business will not be responsible for any false or misleading information provided to it, whether intentionally or unintentionally.
You agree to notify Giddi Business within two (2) business days if any of the information you provided as part of this Service changes. It is your responsibility to keep this information current, accurate, and complete. Your failure to provide Giddi Business with current, accurate, and complete information , shall be considered a material breach of this Agreement. Your failure to respond within five (5) business days to any inquiries made by Giddi Business to determine the validity of information provided by you, shall also be considered a material breach of this Agreement.
SELLING AND LISTING DOMAIN NAMES
By using the Services to list domains in our marketplace, you represent and warrant that:
You have all rights, title and interests in the domain name necessary to complete the transaction;
You have the ability to transfer the domain name free and clear of any obligations, liabilities, liens or encumbrances;
The domain name does not infringe on any rights of anyone else; 
The domain name is not currently and will not in the foreseeable future be involved in a Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy dispute, litigation or other legal proceeding; and,
You have the full and unfettered right to transfer the domain name in accordance with your obligations under this Agreement.
If you find a Buyer by using the Services, then the transaction must be completed within the Services. For each transaction completed within the Services, you agree to pay Giddi Business a transaction fee according to our published fee schedule. Such transaction fee will be payable directly to Giddi Business unless the transaction is processed using a third-party escrow service, in which case all fees will be paid to such third-party escrow service. In addition to any transaction fees, you agree to pay Giddi Business or the third-party escrow service, as the case may be, any intermediary or other banking fees charged by Buyer’s banking institution in connection with the transaction.
You are prohibited from selling any domain name to any Buyer found through the Services, without using the Services to complete the transaction. In such event, Giddi Business reserves the right to terminate your marketplace account, cancel all of your listings, and pursue any other remedies against you at law or in equity.
Sellers are prohibited from placing a bid on or buying any domain names they have listed. Additionally, bidding by individuals who have knowledge of or access to Seller’s item information, in order to raise the price at which your item will eventually sell, is also prohibited. If you bid or have someone else bid on a domain name that you have listed, then all of your listings will be removed from the site, and administration fees will be assessed per listing. Your User Account will be locked while we investigate your actions. Giddi Business, in its sole discretion, will take all actions it deems appropriate to redress such conduct.
Sellers are obligated to complete the transaction if Buyer commits to purchase the domain name through a fixed price, “buy now” option, or if Buyer meets or exceeds the minimum bid or reserve price. If the domain name is not registered with Giddi Business, then Seller has five calendar days to provide a transfer authorization code from its registrar. In instances where the Seller is not the registrant, and the domain name is not registered with Giddi Business, Giddi Business reserves the right in its sole discretion to verify the ownership via the use of verified nameservers, a meta tag and/or a DNS TXT entry.
Should you fail to complete the transaction for any reason, Giddi Business reserves the right to (i) charge you a fee, (ii) terminate your User Account with Giddi Business (as determined by Giddi Business in our sole and absolute discretion), and/or (iii) pursue any other available remedies against you.. 
By receiving payments through the Services, you appoint Giddi Business as your agent to receive and deposit funds on your behalf. The amount initiated and posted to the deposit account(s) will represent payment for domain names sold using the Services, less any applicable fees and/or chargebacks. Payments can be cancelled or suspended at any time due to chargebacks or suspicion of fraud. In order to receive payments, you will need to set up a payee and assign it to your Giddi Business User Account. You may be required to provide personal information, including without limitation that which relates to tax or confirms your identity, in order to comply with all applicable laws.
You hereby authorize Giddi Business to initiate and post entries to the deposit account(s) that you designate, both (i) credit entries for payments and (ii) debit entries to reverse erroneous payments and/or make adjustments to incorrect payments. The authority granted to us by you or the deposit account owner(s) will remain in full force and effect until we have received written notification from you or the deposit account owner(s) that such authority has been revoked, or until the termination of your Giddi Business User Account.
Payments may take 1-12 business days to be posted to the deposit account once they are initiated, depending on the payment method and currency selected. The issuer of your payment method or an intermediary may charge you additional fees to receive funds. 
If the domain name sold is registered with Giddi Business, then Giddi Business will initiate payment of proceeds into Seller’s deposit account five business days after receipt by Giddi Business of verified funds from Buyer. If the domain name sold is not registered with Giddi Business, then Giddi Business will initiate payment of proceeds into Seller’s deposit account five business days after transfer of the domain name to Buyer’s account at Giddi Business is complete. In either event, you acknowledge and agree that there may be a delay of several days or longer between the time that Giddi Business initiates the payment of proceeds and the time that the proceeds are actually posted to your deposit account.
The authority granted to Giddi Business by the deposit account owner herein will remain in full force and effect until Giddi Business has received written notification from the deposit account owner that such authority has been revoked, but in any event, such writing shall be provided in such a manner as to afford Giddi Business a reasonable opportunity to act on such revocation, or until Giddi Business has sent notice to terminate this Agreement.
In the event of a payment chargeback, Giddi Business will deduct the amount of the Payment from Seller’s Payment Method on file. In the event that chargeback frequency is high, as determined by Giddi Business, Giddi Business reserves the right to hold back twenty percent (20%) of all Seller’s Payments for one hundred and twenty (120) days from the date the Payment was to be paid.
Giddi Business will not release the domain name to Buyer until receipt of confirmation that the funds have been verified.
ccTLDs. You acknowledge and agree that country code top level domain names (“ccTLDs”) may have unique eligibility requirements. It is your responsibility to review the applicable registry rules, policies, and agreements for the ccTLD in question to ensure that you are in compliance with all eligibility requirements. 
PURCHASING AND BIDDING ON DOMAIN NAMES
Buyers are obligated to complete the transaction if you purchase the domain name through a fixed price, “buy now”, or if you are the highest bidder at the end of an auction and your bid meets or exceeds the minimum bid or reserve price. If the purchased domain name is not registered with Giddi Business, then Giddi Business will initiate transfer into Buyer’s account, which may take up to fifteen (15) days, or may fail. In the event you fail to complete the transaction for any reason, Giddi Business reserves the right to (i) charge you a fee and/or (ii) terminate your membership with Giddi Business (as determined by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion). 
Some listed domain names may be subject to an additional renewal fee. In the case of fixed price purchases, the renewal fee will be added at the time of checkout. You agree by completing the transaction, you are responsible for payment of the renewal fee. Once you send payment, Giddi Business will hold those funds for a prescribed period of time based on the type of transaction, at which time Giddi Business will remit the payment to Seller. You will not be able to withdraw those funds or send the funds to another recipient unless the initial transaction is cancelled. Should Seller refuse payment, the funds, minus the administration fee as outlined in the pricing structure, will be returned to you. Giddi Business is not responsible for payments refused by Seller. 
Giddi Business will obtain the funds first by the Payment Method you have designated. If there are insufficient funds or invalid credit card information, Giddi Business may obtain the remaining funds by charging any Payment Method you have on file. In the event of a charge reversal or chargeback by a credit card company or other payment provider, or if we determine in our sole discretion that we are unable or unlikely to collect payment, any associated domain registration will immediately terminate and/or the domain name registration will be transferred to Giddi Business as the paying entity for the registration. In the case of domains purchased via auction (i.e. “buy it now” or via bid) Giddi Business may, in our sole discretion, offer the reclaimed domain name to the next highest bidder in the relevant auction and charge such bidder their highest bid amount, or make the domain name subject to a new auction among bidders determined by Giddi Business, or otherwise dispose of the name.
Giddi Business reserves the right to publish your unique username once an auction in which you have participated has been closed or ended. As a Buyer, you are responsible for ensuring that your use of the domain name does not infringe on third-party rights or any relevant laws or regulations.
You agree not to purchase any domain name found through the Services without using the Services to complete the transaction. Should Giddi Business determine (which determination shall be made by Giddi Business in its sole and absolute discretion) that you are circumventing the Services, Giddi Business reserves the right to terminate your account and cancel all of your User Account.
You understand and agree that for every bid you place, your Payment Method may be preauthorized for the bid amount you designate. 
Proxy Bidding. You understand and agree that Giddi Business will automatically proxy bid on your behalf when a bid more than the minimum required bid is submitted. 
ccTLDs. You acknowledge and agree that country code top level domain names (“ccTLDs”) may have unique eligibility requirements. It is your responsibility to review the applicable registry rules, policies, and agreements for the ccTLD in question to ensure that you are in compliance with all eligibility requirements. 
GIDDI BUSINESS EXPIRED DOMAIN NAMES 
Giddi Business may list domain names which have entered into an expiration period for their original registration (“Expired Domain Names”). These Expired Domain Names may be listed on the Site on the date of their expiration, however, no sale will be final until thirty (30) days after the date of expiration. As described in the Domain Name Registration Agreement, the original registrant has the right to reclaim the Expired Domain Name for the duration of the redemption period. By bidding on the Expired Domain Name, Buyer acknowledges and agrees that if Buyer has the winning bid, the transfer of the Expired Domain Name will not be completed until after the redemption period is complete. Giddi Business shall not be obligated to offer a third-party escrow service to facilitate transactions involving Expired Domain Names. If the Expired Domain Name is reclaimed by the original registrant, Giddi Business will refund the full purchase price. 
Expired Domain Name prices include a one (1) year renewal fee, and payment is due immediately upon auction close. The domain name will be renewed from the original date of expiration, not the date of purchase. Your payment method stored in your User Account will be charged prior to the second day following the auction close, and may be charged immediately upon close of the auction. If the winning bidder does not complete their purchase, then Giddi Business may offer the Expired Domain Name to others for purchase. 
CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP
Giddi Business is not the owner of the domain names listed on the Site and, accordingly, cannot guarantee immediate change of ownership upon completion of a transaction. If the domain name sold is registered with Giddi Business, then change of ownership will begin upon completion of the check-out process and receipt of buyer’s funds. For domain names that are registered with Giddi Business but designated as Expired Domain Names and listed using the Auction format, change of ownership will not be completed until thirty (30) days after the original date of expiration. 
Designated Agent. To facilitate the change of registrant information associated with the listed domain names, and in accordance with ICANN’s Transfer Policy, seller, at the time of listing the domain names, explicitly agrees and directs Giddi Business to act as its Designated Agent. As Designated Agent, Giddi Business will facilitate the transfer and change of domain name contact information for the sold domain names. As such, Seller grants Giddi Business the power to explicitly consent to the material change of registrant contact information to facilitate transfer of the sold domain names. Additionally, Buyer specifically authorizes and directs Giddi Business to act as its Designated Agent. As Designated Agent, Giddi Business will facilitate the transfer and change of domain name contact information for purchased domain names. As such, Buyer explicitly grants Giddi Business the power to consent to the material change of registrant contact information, so as to facilitate transfer of the purchased domain name(s).
While Seller may use the Services to facilitate the selling of domain names that are not registered with Giddi Business, Giddi Business requires the Seller to transfer any domain names that are not registered with Giddi Business to Giddi Business upon receipt of a final/successful bid, so the registrar of record for the domain name in question will be Giddi Business. 
If, for any reason, the change of ownership from Seller to Buyer is not able to be completed, then Buyer and Seller acknowledge and agree that Giddi Business shall have no liability or responsibility regarding the same. In all cases, whether the domain name in question is registered with Giddi Business or with another registrar, the change of ownership from seller to Giddi Business is done without representation or warranty of any kind (including, but not limited to, any representation or warranty that a domain name does not infringe upon the intellectual property or other rights of a third party), and Giddi Business expressly disclaims any liability or responsibility regarding the same.
Please note that any domain name registered through the Giddi Business marketplace may not be transferred away from Giddi Business to another registrar for a period of sixty (60) days following the change of ownership date.
TRANSFERS
All domain name transfers shall be governed by ICANN's transfer policy, which is incorporated herein by reference and which may be modified from time to time. All domain names transferred to Giddi Business will be locked against transfer out, for a period of one hundred and twenty (120) days.
GIDDI BUSINESS’S RIGHT TO MONITOR
Giddi Business may, but is under no obligation to, monitor the Services. Giddi Business reserves the right to edit the descriptions and comments on listings. Giddi Business reserves the right to make public and share with third parties certain information in connection with the sale or purchase of domain names on the website, including but not limited to (a) the name of the domain name sold or purchased, (b) the sale or purchase price of the domain name sold or purchased, and (c) information relating to the timing of the sale or purchase.
DISPUTES
In the event you are involved with a dispute, you release Giddi Business, its affiliates, officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures and employees from any and all claims, demands and damages (actual and consequential) of every kind and nature arising out of or in any way connected with such dispute.
Giddi Business reserves the right to charge an administration fee to cover the costs associated with investigation of a dispute as described in the UTOS. Should Giddi Business receive multiple complaints regarding transactions in which you are involved, Giddi Business, in its sole discretion, may cancel your account, terminate all listings you have, and pursue any other available remedies against you..
REMEDIES AND RIGHT TO CANCEL
In the event you breach this Agreement or any document incorporated by reference, or Giddi Business determines that your actions may pose a risk to Giddi Business or its members, or that your use of the Services infringes on the intellectual property or other legal rights of any third party, Giddi Business may immediately:
Warn its members of your actions;
Place a hold on any pending transactions associated with your account(s);
Limit funding sources and payments;
Limit your access to your account(s) or to any functionality of your account(s);

TITLES AND HEADINGS; INDEPENDENT COVENANTS; SEVERABILITY

The type of information we collect about you depends on the nature of your interaction with us. Depending on the circumstances, we collect any of the following:
Non-Personally Identifiable Information. This is information that is commonly made available by web browsers and servers, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Giddi Business uses this information to understand how visitors use our Site, diagnose any problems with our server and administer the operation of our Site.
The range of information we collect will depend on how you interact with our Site. This information may include: IP address, your computer device details; the make and version of the web browser you are using; your operating system; your time-zone; your browser plug-ins; any web-page you came from, identified as the referrer web page address by your web browser; cookies; page response times; download error; pages and parts of pages you visit; usage you make of our Site, including inquiries and searches undertaken, and registrations for accounts, forums etc.; services and products you viewed; length of visit to Site and pages; and page interaction information. This will normally be collected and used anonymously, and aggregated for analysis, with your name and any characteristics identifying you remaining anonymous, but our privacy policy will apply, and it will be treated as your personal information, if this information is in any way linked to you personally. This information may also include: information inputted into forms and field; registrations for any accounts, forum, feedback mechanism, social functionality, newsletters or other features of our site; usernames and passwords, log-in/ out history, and settings; actions taken within your User Account or other registration, including view and update and changes to settings; and posts to any forum, feedback, review or other social functionality on our Site.

Domain Name Registration Information. We are required by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN"), to collect information about you during the domain name registration process. To register a domain name, you are required to provide the name you are registering; your name and postal address (or those of the person for whom you are registering the name); technical information about the computer with which the domain name will be associated; and the name, postal address, e-mail address, and voice and (where available) fax telephone numbers for the technical, administrative, billing, and zone contacts for the domain name. Once the domain name has been registered, your registration agreement requires you to correct and update this data promptly. 
Why you must provide the information. The information you provide when registering a domain name (or correcting or updating registration information) is required to allow the Internet to associate the domain name with your delegated nameservers, to allow us to properly handle your account (including notifying you at renewal time), and to permit others operating or using the Internet to contact you to resolve issues that arise in connection with the domain name. It will also be stored at the top-level domain name registry of the domain name (for example, Verisign stores and processes all domain name information for the .COM, .NET and other top-level domains). It will also be stored under a data escrow program to keep the domain name operating in the event we or the top-level domain registry leave the domain name registration business, and ICANN designates a successor.
