Registration Agreement for the ".MW" Domain

A. Introduction.

This domain name registration agreement ("Registration Agreement") is submitted to MALAWI SDNP for the purpose of applying for and registering a domain name on .mw, the Internet Country Code (ccTLD) for Malawi. If this Registration Agreement is accepted by Malawi SDNP, and a domain name is registered under the .mw domain name database and assigned to the Registrant, Registrant ("Registrant") agrees to be bound by the terms of this Registration Agreement and the terms of the Malawi SDNP Domain Name Dispute Policy ("Dispute Policy") which is incorporated herein by reference and made a part of this Registration Agreement. This Registration Agreement shall be accepted at the offices of Malawi SDNP.

B. Fees and Payments.

Fees are now covered under the Fees Policy.

C. Dispute Policy.

Registrant agrees, as a condition to submitting this Registration Agreement, and if the Registration Agreement is accepted by Malawi SDNP, that the Registrant shall be bound by the current Malawi SDNP Dispute Policy. The current Malawi SDNP Dispute Policy is to resolve disputes using the domain name dispute policy under the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers which may be found at the ICANN web site:

D. Dispute Policy Changes or        Modifications.

Registrant agrees that Malawi SDNP, in its sole discretion, may change or modify the Dispute Policy, incorporated by reference herein, at any time. Registrant agrees that Registrant's maintaining the registration of a domain name after changes or modifications to the Dispute Policy become effective constitutes Registrant's continued acceptance of these changes or modifications. Registrant agrees that if Registrant considers any such changes or modifications to be unacceptable, Registrant may request that the domain name be deleted from the domain name database.

E. Disputes

Registrant agrees that, if the registration of its domain name is challenged by any third party, the Registrant will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy.

F. Agents.

Registrant agrees that if this Registration Agreement is completed by an agent for the Registrant, such as a Registrar, an ISP or Administrative Contact/Agent, the Registrant is nonetheless bound as a principal by all terms and conditions herein, including the Dispute Policy.

G. Limitation of Liability.

Registrant agrees that Malawi SDNP shall have no liability to the Registrant for any loss Registrant may incur in connection with Malawi SDNP's processing of this Registration Agreement, in connection with Malawi SDNP's processing of any authorized modification to the domain name's record during the covered period, as a result of the Registrant's ISP's failure to pay either the initial registration fee or renewal fee, or as a result of the application of the provisions of the Dispute Policy. Registrant agrees that in no event shall the maximum liability of MALAWI SDNP under this Agreement for any matter exceed Two Hundred United States Dollars (US$200).

H. Indemnity.

Registrant agrees, in the event the Registration Agreement is accepted by Malawi SDNP and a subsequent dispute arises with any third party, to indemnify and hold Malawi SDNP harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy.

I. Breach.

Registrant agrees that failure to abide by any provision of this Registration Agreement or the Dispute Policy may be considered by Malawi SDNP to be a material breach and that Malawi SDNP may provide a written notice, describing the breach, to the Registrant. If, within thirty (30) days of the date of mailing such notice, the Registrant fails to provide evidence, which is reasonably satisfactory to MALAWI SDNP, that it has not breached its obligations, then MALAWI SDNP may delete Registrant's registration of the domain name. Any such breach by a Registrant shall not be deemed to be excused simply because MALAWI SDNP did not act earlier in response to that, or any other, breach by the Registrant.

J. No Guaranty.

Registrant agrees that, by registration of a domain name, such registration does not confer immunity from objection to either the registration or use of the domain name.

K. Warranty.

Registrant warrants by submitting this Registration Agreement that, to the best of Registrant's knowledge and belief, the information submitted herein is true and correct, and that any future changes to this information will be provided to MALAWI SDNP in a timely manner according to the domain name modification procedures in place at that time. Breach of this warranty will constitute a material breach.

L. Revocation.

Registrant agrees that MALAWI SDNP may delete a Registrant's domain name if this Registration Agreement, or subsequent modification(s) thereto, contains false or misleading information, or conceals or omits any information MALAWI SDNP would likely consider material to its decision to approve this Registration Agreement.

M. Right of Refusal.

MALAWI SDNP, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to refuse to approve the Registration Agreement for any Registrant. Registrant agrees that the submission of this Registration Agreement does not obligate MALAWI SDNP to accept this Registration Agreement. Registrant agrees that MALAWI SDNP shall not be liable for loss or damages that may result from MALAWI SDNP's refusal to accept this Registration Agreement.

N. Severability.

Registrant agrees that the terms of this Registration Agreement are severable. If any term or provision is declared invalid, it shall not affect the remaining terms or provisions which shall continue to be binding.

O. Entirety.

Registrant agrees that this Registration Agreement and the Dispute Policy is the complete and exclusive agreement between Registrant and MALAWI SDNP regarding the registration of Registrant's domain name. This Registration Agreement and the Dispute Policy supersede all prior agreements and understandings, whether established by custom, practice, policy, or precedent.

P. Governing Law.

Registrant agrees that this Registration Agreement shall be governed in all respects by and construed in accordance with the laws of Malawi. By submitting this Registration Agreement, Registrant consents to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the Malawi High Court.
