1 Information Collected by Alfena.com
We will not knowingly use information collected on this website to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Alfena.com collects information from our users at several different points on our website.

For purposes of this Privacy Statement, "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that can directly identify an individual; for example, such information may include an individual's name, mailing address, phone number or email address.

1.1 Information that Is Automatically Collected
We use IP addresses, with the help of a business partner, to analyze trends, administer the website, track users' movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to Personally Identifiable Information.

1.2 Information that Is Collected by Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user's hard drive containing information about that user. By setting a cookie on our website, the user would not have to log in with a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our website. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our website. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our website. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website. Some of our business partners use cookies on our website (for example, advertisers); however, we have no access to or control over these cookies.

1.3 Information that Is Actively Submitted to Alfena.com
Registrations and Orders. In order to register a domain name or order services from this website, a user must create an account and complete a registration process. During the account creation process, a user must provide contact information (such as name and email address) so that we can stay in touch with our users. This information is also used to fulfill order and registration requests. To pay for a domain name registration or for other service ordered, a user must provide contact information (such as name and shipping address) and financial information (such as a credit card number and its expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes, with the help of our business partner, and to fill users' orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.

Tell-A-Friend. If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our website, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. We will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the website. We store this information for the purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact us at Privacy@Alfena.com to request the removal of this information from this database.

1.4 Third Party Advertisers on Alfena.com's Website
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads (using methods that include Pixel Tags and Clear Gifs) when you visit our website. Third-party advertising companies also separately place or recognize a cookie file on your browser in the course of delivering advertisements to this website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

1.5 Information Alfena.com Obtains from Third Parties
Supplemental Information Collected. In certain circumstances, in order for our website to properly fulfill its obligation to our users, it is necessary for us to supplement the information we receive with information from third party sources. For example, to determine if our users qualify for a dotPartner account, we use their name and business information to request a credit report.

Alfena.com Accounts Created by a Third Party on Your Behalf. If you received your domain name from someone else, without registering for it yourself, your domain name may belong to a "managed domain." In a managed domain, the administrator of a company with whom you have a business relationship (for example, your ISP) can create your domain name for you. You can then use the domain name like any other domain name. The administrator, however, has access to the domain name and can edit your Alfena.com profile, reset your password, and manage the Alfena.com account without your additional consent. In addition to the terms mentioned in this Privacy Statement, an account created by a third party allows any of your Personally Identifiable Information within that account to be available to that third party as if they were you. We have no access to or control over the third party to prevent their disclosure of your information.

2 Communications from Alfena.com
Welcome Emails and General Correspondence. We send a welcoming email to the email address associated with the account a user has created to verify the users password and username. This process is designed to prevent e-mail addresses from being used without permission in the creation of a Alfena.com account. Established users will occasionally receive information on products, services, special deals, and a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive some of these types of communications. Please see our opt-out options below.

Site and Service Updates. We send the user website and service announcement updates. Users are not permitted to unsubscribe from service announcements, which contain important information about the website and/or service. We may communicate with users to provide services that users request or to discuss issues relating to their account.

Surveys & Contests. From time-to-time our website requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and, as such, the user has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).

3 How Information Collected by Alfena.com Is Used
Demographic Information. We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. The aggregated demographic information is not linked to any Personally Identifiable Information that can identify any individual person.

Communicating with Our Users. We use Personally Identifiable Information (such as your name, telephone number or email address) to communicate with our users when they have questions, concerns or comments about their accounts or the services that we provide. If you contact us, we may or may not delete your emails or voicemails to us.

Information Shared With Third Parties. We share information with third parties as required by ICANN and in order to give our customers access to a great variety of services. Specifically, we may do the following:
Submit the name, postal address, e-mail address, and phone numbers associated with the registrant, administrative, technical and billing contacts of a domain name to the appropriate Registry or registration database. This information is included in a publicly available 'Whois' database, in accordance with ICANN rules. This sharing of information is required by ICANN rules.
Use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not use Personally Identifiable Information for any use other than credit card processing; however, we will not be responsible or liable for use of the information required by credit card companies in contravention of their policies, contractual obligations or general good business procedures.
Partner with third parties who provide services to our users. When the user signs up for or agrees to receive a specific service provided by the third party (i.e. PostMasterDirect advertisements), we share the information that is needed for the third party to provide the services.
Share the publicly available domain contact information submitted by our users for inclusion in the Whois database with third parties. We do not control the use of this Personally Identifiable Information by third parties.
Share your Personally Identifiable Information with other entities that are owned by Alfena.com, that own Alfena.com, or have some sort of corporate ownership relationship with Alfena.com.

Addressing Legal Issues. Further, we provide Personally Identifiable Information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. Further, we believe it is necessary to share Personally Identifiable Information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Alfena.com's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

Sale or Transfer of Alfena.com. If all or a portion of Alfena.com is transferred, sold, merged, ceases operations, goes bankrupt, or is otherwise involved in a transaction where the ownership or management of Alfena.com is changed (individually or collectively, a "Transaction") then your Personally Identifiable Information or other user information may be transferred or assigned to a third party as part of the Transaction.

4 Correction/Updating Personal Information
Users must provide accurate and correct contact information (name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number) for their domain name(s) Registrant, Administrative, Technical and Billing contacts, which will be listed in a publicly accessible 'Whois' database, in compliance with ICANN rules. If a user's Personally Identifiable Information changes (such as a zip code), or if a user no longer desires Alfena.com's services, we will provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can usually be done under online account management (on your own) or by emailing our user Support Group for assistance.

5 Opting Out
Users are provided an opportunity to "opt-out" of having their information used for purposes not directly related to the services they request. Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter or promotional materials from us may opt-out of receiving these communications by replying and typing "unsubscribe" in the subject line in the email or email your request to Privacy@Alfena.com .

6 Terminated Alfena.com Accounts
If your Alfena.com account is terminated or cancelled (regardless of whether it was voluntary), all of your Personally Identifiable Information will remain on our servers. We retain and use your Personally Identifiable Information as necessary to enforce our policies or to address contractual issues, and may contact you for future marketing or promotional purposes.

7 Use of the Alfena.com Website by Persons Under Age 13
This website is not intended for use by anyone under the age of thirteen (13), and any individual under such age should not provide us with Personally Identifiable Information. We do not knowingly contact, market to, solicit, collect or use Personally Identifiable Information from or about any individual under the age of 13. It is possible that by fraud or deception we may receive information pertaining to children under 13. If we are notified of that we have personal information regarding a person under the age of 13, as soon as we reasonably verify the information, we will either obtain parental consent or otherwise delete the information from the account and/or service. However, the information may remain on a log in our servers. If you want to notify us of our receipt of information by children under 13, please do so by emailing us at: Privacy@Alfena.com.

8 Linking to Third Party Websites
This website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our website and to read the Privacy Statements of each and every website that collects Personally Identifiable Information. This Privacy Statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

9 Users Must Keep Their Passwords Private
Users are required to keep their account passwords confidential and to not share this information with others. If you choose to reveal or share your password and Alfena.com account name, we are unable to guarantee the security of your account.

10 Changes to Our Privacy Statement
This Privacy Statement may change, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Privacy Statement that is in effect as of the time of use. You are responsible for periodically checking our Privacy Statement. You may opt-out of any posted change to our collection, use or disclosure of your personal information by sending an e-mail to Privacy@Alfena.com. If we make minor changes to this Privacy Statement, the changes will be immediately effective upon posting the revised Privacy Statement to the website.

Alfena.com does not have any ownership interest in your specific personal registration information outside of its rights in its Domain Database.

 

6.   Domain parking:
6.1   In the domain registration process, you will be asked to provide name servers to associate with the domain being registered. If you do not enter name servers for the domain at that time, the domain will be automatically placed on name servers provided by Alfena.com, and internet users that type in the domain will be redirected to a "coming soon" page (collectively, "parking a domain" or a "parked domain"). There is no charge for parking a domain. By not designating name servers during the registration process, you hereby consent to and authorize Alfena.com's placement of a "coming soon" page, and its associated contents, on your parked domain. You may change the name server configuration (or "un-park" the domain) after the registration is complete. If you need to register name servers using the domains that you are currently registering, the names will initially be parked with Alfena.com until you modify the name servers after the domain registration is complete, using your account manager.

6.2   In the event your domain registration expires, your registration is no longer valid. If you are able to renew the domain name, you may update the domain to its original settings. After expiration, but prior to renewal, the domain may be pointed to an "expired" page (collectively, "parking a domain" or a "parked domain"). There is no charge for the parked domain. By not renewing the domain, Alfena.com may place an "expired" page, and its associated contents, on the parked domain. You may change the name server configuration (or "un-park" the domain) after the renewal is complete. If you need to register name servers using the domains that you are currently renewing, the names will initially be parked with Alfena.com until you modify the name servers after the domain renewal is complete, using your account manager.

6.3   The "coming soon" and/or "expired" pages may contain advertisements and other materials selected by Alfena.com, in Alfena.com's sole discretion. This may include, but is not limited to third-party Web sites, third-party product and service offerings, and/or Internet search engines.

7.   Registration renewal:
7.1   Renewal obligations. You are solely responsible for ensuring that any and all domains and additional services are renewed prior to their expiration, should you so desire their renewal. You may renew your domain at any time before the expiration date. Alfena.com shall have no liability to you or any third party in connection with the renewal, including, but not limited to, any failure or errors in renewing the services.

You may be notified at Alfena.com's sole discretion when renewal fees are due. Should these fees go unpaid within the time specified in a notice or reminder regarding renewal, your registration will be cancelled. Payment must be made by such ther method as we indicate in the renewal form. If your billing information is not accurate, you are solely responsible for the failure to renew.

7.2   Autorenewal. You agree that if you paid for any services provided hereunder by credit card, you hereby authorize but do NOT obligate, Alfena.com to automatically charge your credit card and renew the applicable service(s) on or before their renewal date using the credit card information you have provided to Alfena.com, unless you notify Alfena.com that you do not wish to participate in Alfena.com's automatic renewal process. Alfena.com must receive notification of your intent to not renew (opt-out) no earlier than thirty (30) days prior to renewal date or on renewal date. In the absence of such notification from you, Alfena.com will automatically renew, for a period of one year, any domain that is up for renewal and will charge the credit card you have on file with Alfena.com, at Alfena.com's then current rates. You are solely responsible for the credit card information you provide to Alfena.com and must promptly inform Alfena.com of any changes thereto (e.g., change of expiration date or account number). If the credit card has expired or is otherwise invalid, you are solely responsible for a failure to renew and Alfena.com shall not be liable for your failure. If correct information is not provided prior to the expiration date of the domain, your registration will not be renewed.

7.3   Grace Period; Transfer of Expired Domain Names. You agree that we may place our contact information in the WHOIS output for any expired domain name, as the failure to renew results in the immediate cancellation of registration and loss of all rights to the domain name. Should you choose not to renew your domain name during any applicable grace period, you agree that we may, in our sole discretion, renew and transfer the domain name to a third party on your behalf as an Expired Domain Transfer ("ED Transfer"). Additionally, at our discretion, you will be eligible, but not required, to receive a portion of the funds received by us as a result of an ED Transfer of your domain name, as follows: up to twenty-five percent (25%) of the Net Proceeds received by us from the third party as a result of an ED Transfer. You acknowledge and agree that the ED Transfer process may be facilitated through a single ED Transfer Customer, or through a brief auction involving multiple parties who are interested in your domain name. For purposes of this paragraph, "Net Proceeds" shall mean the total fees paid to us by a third party as a result of an ED Transfer, less any registry fees, credit card charge-backs, processing and check fees, and other costs or fees associated with the ED Transfer of the domain name. You agree that we shall have no obligation to pay you, and you shall have no right to receive any percentage of the Net Proceeds. If we decide to make a payout, it will not complete unless, within sixty (60) days after the expiration of the domain name, you contact us AND provide us with the name, address and related information requested by us (including, but not limited to, a Form W-9, if applicable). We cannot guarantee, and we make no representation or promise, that any ED Transfer will occur with respect to your domain name.

7.4   New Customers through Namewinner and/or ED Transfers. If you are registering a domain name that was registered with, and not yet deleted by, Alfena.com at the time of your purchase, you acknowledge and agree that the term of your registration will be for a period of one year from the original expiration date for the domain name immediately prior to your purchase, as the registration is the result of an ED Transfer (defined above). You will not be compensated for the inability to use the domain from the time it was expired until the time you are able to use he domain in your account. NOTE: Your rights to the domain name are non-transferable to any person nor Registrar for the first eighty (80) days of registration from the date the domain expired, prior to purchase, without notice, at Alfena.com's, discretion. In addition, it is your responsibility to verify if any domain is infringing anyone else's rights, prior to registration. If the domain name you have registered is found to be infringing on another person's rights, based solely on Alfena.com discretion, Alfena.com has the right to cancel your registration immediately. If your rights are terminated, your sole remedy will be limited to a prorated refund of the price paid to us for the domain name. If its is a willful violation of our agreement, you will not be entitled to any refund. WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR ANY COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE TERMINATION OF YOUR RIGHTS TO THE DOMAIN NAME. YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY US FOR ANY ACTION COMMENCED BECAUSE OF YOUR FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND INFORM AND VERIFY THE ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT BY OTHER USERS OF THE DOMAIN.


8.   Dispute resolution policy:
You agree to be bound by the appropriate domain dispute resolution policy ("Dispute Policy") applicable to the domain that you have selected. The Dispute Policy(ies) can be found here. The Dispute Policy has been developed by ICANN and/or the specific Registration Administrator(s) and is a required component of every Agreement. The Dispute Policies are hereby incorporated and made a part of this Agreement by reference. Certain disputes, as specified in the applicable Dispute Policy, are subject to that Policy. In the event such dispute arises, you agree that you will be subject to the provisions specified in the Dispute Policy in effect at the time your domain registration is disputed by a third party. You further agree that, in the event a domain dispute arises with any third party, you will indemnify and hold Alfena.com harmless pursuant to the terms and conditions contained in the Dispute Policy. The Dispute Policy may be modified at any time by the applicable Registry Administrator(s) and your continued use of the domain registered to you after any such Dispute Policy modification shall constitute your acceptance of the modified Dispute Policy and this Agreement. If you do not agree to any of such changes, you may request that your domain registration be cancelled or transferred to a different domain registrar. For the adjudication of disputes concerning or arising from use of the SLD name, the SLD holder shall submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts (1) of the SLD holder's domicile and (2) where Registrar is located.

9.   Change of registrant of domains:
9.1   Transfer of registration to another registrant. The entity or person named as the "registrant" at the time the controlling user name and password are secured shall be the registrant of the domain. You agree that prior to the effectiveness of any transfer of ownership of your domain to another entity, Alfena.com reserves the right to enforce any amount published for the transfer of ownership of a domain. You further agree that, as a condition of any such transfer of ownership of the domain, the person or entity to which you seek to transfer your domain shall agree in writing (electronic acceptance is acceptable) to be bound by the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your domain will not be transferred until we receive such written assurances and/or actual payment of the transfer fee, if any is imposed (or reasonable assurance as determined by Alfena.com in its sole discretion). You acknowledge and agree that if you attempt to transfer your domain registration without paying Alfena.om any amount published for the transfer of ownership of a domain, or if the entity to which you seek to transfer your domain fails to agree in writing to be bound by all terms and conditions of this Agreement, any such transfer will be null and void, and will result in your domain registration being revoked without a refund of any charges you have incurred in attempting to register or transfer that domain.

9.2   When changing the name of Registrant within Alfena.com, you agree that the domain name may be changed back to the Registrant listed immediately prior to the change upon written (e-mail is acceptable) request within five (5) days (or reasonable time as determined at Alfena.com's discretion) by Registrant that was listed immediately prior to change.

9.3   Transfer of registration to or from another registrar. When transferring a domain name into Alfena.com as the new Registrar of record and simultaneously changing the name of Registrant or subsequently changing the name of Registrant, you agree that the domain name may be re-transferred back to the losing Registrar upon written (e-mail is acceptable) request by Registrant that was listed immediately prior to transfer or upon request by losing Registrar. At the time of transfer into Alfena.com, you must complete all required information requested through the online transfer application, i.e. contact information, nameserver information, etc. Alfena.com may elect to accept or reject your domain name transfer application for any reason at its sole discretion.

11.2   Right to Disable Account or Domain. If you send Unsolicited Email, Alfena.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately disable any domain or user account that allegedly sent such unsolicited email in order to forestall further abuse or damage to email systems. Unsolicited Email sent from other networks that reference email accounts of domains registered by Alfena.com shall be considered to have originated from the account referenced, unless compelling reasons are provided to Alfena.com, such that Alfena.com believes that the Unsolicited Email originated with an unrelated third party.

11.3   Single complaint of Unsolicited Email. If Alfena.com receives a complaint regarding Unsolicited Email, Alfena.com will reasonably investigate the claim by, among other things, contacting the administrative contact and/or the account owner of the domain at the listed e-mail address.

If Alfena.com receives two or more complaints for two or more different domains within the same account related to Unsolicited Email, and there is no response to either or both requests for explanation, Alfena.com may suspend and lock the domains in question and lock and disable the domains in the entire account. For those domains within the account that have not received an Unsolicited Email complaint, such domains may be permitted to be transferred to another registrar at the account owner/domain registrant's sole expense.
