A. UDRP COMPLAINTS & PROCEEDINGS
AbollyHost is compliant with the UDRP guidelines set forth by ICANN. Should you file a UDRP related claim, you may submit a copy of the filed claim using the methods described herein to provide AbollyHost with notice of a domain name dispute with one of our customers.
B. NON-Nigeria COURT ORDERS & SUBPOENAS
AbollyHost requires that, unless governed by ICANN regulations or other treaties/Acts to which we may be subject, all court orders and/or subpoenas must be issued by a Nigeria court or law enforcement entity.
C. CUSTOMERS PROTECTED BY WHOISGUARD
AbollyHost will not disclose the identity of a customer who is protected by WhoisGuard unless specifically required by Nigeria court order, subpoena or other regulation to which we are subject.
D. DO I NEED TO NAME AbollyHost AND/OR WHOISGUARD IN THE LEGAL ACTION
No, you do not need to name AbollyHost or WhoisGuard in a legal action. Please note that WhoisGuard is a third party provider and separate entity from AbollyHost. WhoisGuard is a private registration service that maintains the privacy of a AbollyHost customer’s information and it has no control over the domain name, website content and/or other services provided to the customer through AbollyHost. However, like AbollyHost, WhoisGuard will comply with any valid Nigeria court order and/or subpoena which is issued as outlined herein.
E. ACCURACY OF CUSTOMER INFORMATION REQUIRED
While AbollyHost does not require that you list the name of a customer who is protected by WhoisGuard in a court order or subpoena, we do require that any details which are set forth in a subpoena or court order must be accurate. This means that, when you have a customer name, it must be the correct customer name associated with a domain or account for us to be able to take action pursuant to the court order/subpoena.
F. BANKRUPTCY & RECEIVERSHIPS
If a domain and/or website is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding or receivership, it is important to give AbollyHost notice as soon as possible. Bankruptcy and Receivership Orders must be issued in English and be able to be validated as authentic by AbollyHost. AbollyHost reserves the right to refuse action if the orders are outside of the Nigeria and unable to be validated to our satisfaction. Orders must list individually any domain(s) and/or website(s) that are to be separated from other assets and it must state that the Trustee or Receiver has the authority to manage and sell them.
G. SETTLEMENTS & DOMAIN TRANSFERS
In general, customers may privately settle a dispute over a domain/website without AbollyHost’s involvement. A transfer of ownership of such domain/website may be affected by the controlling party through their account panel.
In limited circumstances, parties may request AbollyHost’s assistance in effecting a transfer to a new owner under a settlement agreement. If you are seeking our help, at a minimum we will require a copy of the legal settlement agreement which must:
Have notarized signatures from both parties;
Specify the affected domain name(s); and
Include a statement that the litigation will be dismissed with prejudice.
Further, AbollyHost reserves the right to require an indemnification agreement from one or more parties.
