You agree that WWD may modify this agreement in order to comply with applicable law and the terms and conditions set forth by the Internet ICANN and/or the Registry Administrator chosen by ICANN, as well as any registration rules or policies that may be published from time to time by WWD.

 

1. FEES

In consideration for the services and products ("service") purchased by You and provided to You by WWD, You agree to pay WWD at the time service is provided. Payment is to be made by You providing a valid credit card for charge by WWD, and is non-refundable. If for any reason WWD is unable to charge Your credit card with the full amount owed WWD for the service provided, or if WWD is charged back for any fee it previously charged to the credit card You provided, You agree that WWD may pursue all available remedies in order to obtain payment. You agree that among the remedies WWD may pursue in order to effect payment, shall include but will not be limited to, immediate cancellation without notice to You of any domain names registered or renewed on Your behalf. WWD reserves the right to charge a reasonable service fee for administrative tasks outside the scope of its regular services. These include, but are not limited to, customer service issues that cannot be handled over email but require personal service, and disputes that require legal services. These charges will be billed to the credit card we have on file for You.

2. Domain Name Renewals

When You register a domain name, You have the option to elect that the domain name be automatically renewed upon reaching the expiration date. If You elect the automatic renewal option, WWD will automatically renew, for a period of one year, any domain name that is up for renewal and will charge the credit card You have on file with WWD, at Wild West Domains' then current rates. Domain name renewals will be non refundable. If for any reason WWD is not able to charge the credit card You have on file, and You fail to respond to our notices, Your domain name registration will expire. It is Your responsibility to keep Your credit card information current, including the expiration date. If You do not elect that the domain name be automatically renewed, You have the responsibility of logging into Your account manager for that domain name and manually implementing the renewal by the expiration date (should You in fact want the domain name to be renewed). In this case, if You fail to manually implement the renewal in a timely fashion the domain name will be cancelled and You will no longer have use of that name. You agree that WWD will not be responsible for cancelled domain names that You fail to renew, either automatically or manually. In any case, if You fail to renew Your domain name in a timely fashion, additional charges may apply.
