C. CUSTOMERS PROTECTED BY WITHHELD FOR PRIVACY
Fedazon Web Services will not disclose the identity of a customer who is protected by privacy services offered by Fedazon Web Services unless specifically required by U.S. court order, subpoena or other regulation to which we are subject.
D. DO I NEED TO NAME Fedazon Web Services AND/OR WITHHELD FOR PRIVACY IN THE LEGAL ACTION
No, you do not need to name Fedazon Web Services or Withheld for Privacy in a legal action. Please note that Withheld for Privacy is a third party provider and separate entity from Fedazon Web Services. Withheld for Privacy is a private registration service that is wholly-based in Iceland. It provides privacy services only. This means that it has no control over the domain name, website content and/or other services provided to the customer through Fedazon Web Services. Moreover, based on its design, it does receive nor does it have access to a domain registrant’s information.
E. ACCURACY OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION REQUIRED
While Fedazon Web Services does not require that you list the name of a customer who is protected by Withheld for Privacy in a court order or subpoena, we do require that any details which are set forth in a subpoena or court order must be accurate and specifically identify a customer. This means that, when you have a customer name, it must be the correct customer name associated with a domain or account for us to be able to take action pursuant to the court order/subpoena. It also means that the identifiers must be sufficient to identify a single Fedazon Web Services customer. For this reason, please do not use an IP address as a sole identifier.
F. BANKRUPTCY & RECEIVERSHIPS
If a domain and/or website is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding or receivership,
it is important to give Fedazon Web Services notice as soon as possible. Bankruptcy and Receivership Orders must be issued in English and be able to be validated as authentic by Fedazon Web Services. Fedazon Web Services reserves the right to refuse action if the orders are outside of the U.S. and unable to be validated to our satisfaction. Orders must list individually any domain(s) and/or website(s) that are to be separated from other assets and it must state that the Trustee or Receiver has the authority to manage and sell them.
G. SETTLEMENTS & DOMAIN TRANSFERS
In general, customers may privately settle a dispute over a domain/website without
Fedazon Web Services’s involvement. A transfer of ownership of such domain/website may be affected by the controlling party through their account panel.
In limited circumstances, parties may request Fedazon Web Services’s assistance in
effecting a transfer to a new owner under a settlement agreement. If you are seeking our help, at a minimum we will require a copy of the legal settlement agreement which must:
● Involve litigation;
● Have notarized signatures from both parties;
● Specify the affected domain name(s); and
● Include a statement that the litigation will be dismissed with prejudice.
Further, Fedazon Web Services reserves the right to require an indemnification agreement from one or more parties.
Reservation of Rights
Notwithstanding any of the above, Fedazon Web Services reserves the right to challenge the validity of any subpoena or court order or otherwise move to quash or take such other action to secure an order from the relevant court that Fedazon Web Services is not required to respond to the subpoena or court order.
Fedazon Web Services reserves the right to modify this policy at any time in its sole and absolute discretion. Such modifications are effective immediately upon posting to this site.
