Due to the personalised nature of domain names and the registration process, unfortunately once registered or submitted the domain name cannot be cancelled and there can be no refund.
9.11 We give no warranty that your domain name is or will continue to be available for your use or that no domain name is or will be registered which conflicts with your domain name or which otherwise affects your use of your domain name.
9.12 We shall have no liability in respect of the use by you of any domain name any dispute between you and any other person must be resolved between the parties concerned in such dispute.
