1. Definitions

For the purpose of these Terms and Conditions, the terms within this agreement shall have the meanings defined below.

1.7 "Catch" or "Catches" means registration of an expired domain name within a short time period after the domain name has been deleted by Nominet. A short time period is usually, although not limited to, tens of milliseconds.

2. Limitations

Any Client wishing to access or use the SaaS must have an active Registrar account with Nominet, be a Nominet Member, be subscribed to DAC, add one or more IP address(es) provided by Gueek Ltd to their live EPP and DAC services at Nominet, and have one or more expired domain names that the Client wishes to attempt to Catch.

By accessing and using the SaaS through the Service provisioned,
Client will:

  • keep password(s) and any other authentication details confidential,
  • promptly disclose to Gueek Ltd details of any security breach or unauthorised access related to the Service.
Client will not:
  • resell or distribute the Service, or any part of the Service, unless Client has an agreement in place with Gueek Ltd that permits the Client to do so,
  • damage, disable, deny or impair the Service, or interfere with anyone's use of the Service,
  • modify, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover any code contained in the Service, or in any technology or system used by Gueek Ltd in connection with providing the Service,
  • use any unauthorised means to modify or reroute, or attempt to modify or reroute, the Service or work around any of the technical limitations in the Service,
  • copy and ideas, features, functions, website copy, graphics or code of the Service.

3. Service Fees

In order to access and use the SaaS, the Client is required to pay Service Fees. These fees are agreed with each Client individually and vary depending on the number of domain names successfully registered during the Client's billing cycle.

Clients are billed monthly on the Client's billing day. This day is the anniversary day on which the Client created their Account. The only exception is where the Client created an account after the 28th day of any month. In this scenario, the billing day is set to the 28th.

If Service Fees are not paid in accordance with the provisions hereof, along with any additional terms of payment communicated to Client by Gueek Ltd, all further access to the Service will be blocked without notice. Furthermore, if Service Fees remain outstanding, Gueek Ltd may delete any domain names registered linked to unpaid Service Fees.

Invoices are automatically generated within a Client Account in respect of the Service Fees. All invoices are payable within seven calendar days, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Payment will be attempted no less than 24 hours after invoice date. Payment will be taken using Billing Details provided by Client.

4. Nominet Fees

When a Client Catches an expired domain name, it is registered via EPP to the Client's tag within their Nominet account. This action triggers Nominet to charge for registering a domain name for one year. The Client is also responsible for these fees, which are invoiced directly by Nominet to the Client.

Clients are required to have sufficient credit available within their Nominet account in order to create a chargeable transaction and therefore Catch a domain name. Should a Client not have sufficient available credit with Nominet, an EPP response code of 2104 'Billing failure' will be returned and Client notified.

5. Maintenance

Gueek Ltd and/or its hosting or telecommunications suppliers may perform system maintenance at any time. Any such maintenance will be kept to a minimum.

6. Support

Support is available via email or contact form. All support queries will be responded to within 24 hours, usually much sooner. Resolution of reproducible issues shall be according to severity and impact of users.

7. Upgrades

Gueek Ltd will deploy software upgrades/releases of the SaaS periodically, including patches and/or fixes. Upgrades will be made available at no charge to Client.
