damages or loss of profit which may be suffered by the Customer
or any other entity in any respect for direct, indirect, consequential,
actual, or punitive damages arising out of or in relation to

of delays, non-deliveries, or service interruptions.

by the Customer from the utilization of the service to be provided
by ETIS is at the Customer's sole and absolute risk. ETIS

behalf of the Customer, then in such case the Customer hereby
waives any and all claims which it may have against ETIS, for
any loss, damage, claim or expense arising out of or in relation

the domain name. If ETIS purchases or renews a domain on behalf
of a customer and payment is not received for such within 60
days, ETIS by default becomes the full owner of the domain.

payment from customer for domain renewal. This clause in no
way applies to Customers who purchase domains on their own.
