2. The change of domain registrant and transfer process; Hiya Digital Private Limited Role
The Current Registrant and the New Registrant both agree they are entering into this Agreement of their own free will. The Current Registrant and the New Registrant acknowledge and agree Hiya Digital Private Limited sole role in connection with this Agreement is as processor of change of registrant information and/or the transfer of the registration request for the domain name and Hiya Digital Private Limited only responsibility under this Agreement will be to process the electronic change of registrant information and/or transfer of the registration request for the domain name. The Current Registrant and the New Registrant assume full responsibility for the legal validity of any change of registrant information and/or transfer of the domain name.
Please note the following:
By entering into a change of registrant transaction, you acknowledge and agree that the domain name may not be transferred to another domain name registrar within sixty (60) days after the completion of the change of registrant transaction (the “Transfer Prohibition Period”). Therefore, if either the Current Registrant or the New Registrant anticipate the need to transfer the domain name to another domain name registrar within sixty (60) days after completion of the change of registrant transaction, the Current Registrant and the New Registrant should make arrangements to transfer the domain name to the new domain name registrar first, and make any necessary changes to the domain name registrant second.
In addition, in the event the domain name is subject to a subsequent change of registrant transaction within the Transfer Prohibition Period, the Transfer Prohibition Period will begin again upon completion of the subsequent change of registrant transaction.
A. Change of Registrant Process
Once the Current Registrant initiates the change of registrant request, Hiya Digital Private Limited will send a confirmation email to both the Current Registrant and the New Registrant. Both parties must acknowledge and explicitly consent to the change of registrant information in order for the changes to be approved. Both the Current and New Registrant will receive emails regarding the change and will need to click through to a landing page where (1) the Current Registrant will need to review the domains and change of registrant information; the Current Registrant will also need to opt-out of the 60-day transfer lock if the intent is to transfer the domain to a different registrar, and (2) the New Registrant will need to review the domains and change of registrant information; New Registrant will need to enter into a new registrant agreement with Hiya Digital Private Limited (if applicable). Both the Current Registrant and New Registrant must confirm the terms of the change of registrant transaction within five (5) days of receipt of the confirmation email. In the event either the Current Registrant or the New Registrant fails to confirm the terms of the change of registrant transaction within such five (5) day period, you acknowledge and agree the change will not occur and the change of registrant information request will expire, requiring the Current Registrant to begin the process again.
Upon completion of the change of registrant transaction, Hiya Digital Private Limited will send an email to both Current/Prior Registrant and the New Registrant confirming the change of registrant contemplated by this Agreement. If the Current Registrant has any objection to the change of registrant whatsoever, the Current Registrant assumes all responsibility for responding to such email and notifying Hiya Digital Private Limited of any objection within five (5) days of receipt of the email. The Current Registrant agrees to release, indemnify and hold Hiya Digital Private Limited harmless for any issues that arise as a result of an improper change of registrant, whether intentionally or unintentionally initiated, whether by the Current Registrant or others acting on its behalf.
B. Transfer Process
Upon the Current Registrant’s initiation of a transfer request, Hiya Digital Private Limited will send a confirmation email to the New Registrant. The New Registrant must log into its account and confirm the terms of the change of registrant transaction within five (5) days of receipt of the confirmation email. In the event the New Registrant fails to confirm the terms of the transfer transaction within such five (5) day period, you acknowledge and agree the transfer will not occur and both the transaction ID and the security code for the transfer shall expire, requiring the Current Registrant to begin the process again.
3. Representations and Warranties of the current registrant and the new registrant
