20. Fees:

(a) General: The fees payable for Services relating to Generic Domain Names, including fees for Applications and Registrations, are as set forth on Webnames.ca’s Websites and are subject to change by Webnames.ca from time to time. Fees are not refundable under any circumstances, unless this Agreement or Webnames.ca’s Websites expressly state otherwise. Certain fees (such as fees relating to Sunrise Applications) are payable regardless of the outcome of the Service (e.g., even if the Sunrise Application does not result in a Sunrise Registration).

(b) Variations/Changes: Without limiting the generality of any other provision of this Agreement, You acknowledge and agree that Registrations are variably priced (i.e. some are “Standard Names” and others are “Premium Names”), and that renewals of Registrations are also variably priced, and that fees for Registrations may change from time to time (e.g. the fee for a Registration may be higher during an early access period than during a later period and may change during an early access period). For greater certainty, the fee for registering or renewing the Registration of a specific Generic Domain Name may be different from the fee for registering or renewing the Registration of a different Generic Domain Name (e.g. the renewal registration fee may be $7 for one Generic Domain Name and $13 for a different Generic Domain Name). Each of Donuts, Registry Operators and Webnames.ca reserve the right to increase the initial registration fee for an unregistered Generic Domain Name or to increase the renewal fee for a registered Generic Domain Name.

21. Liability Limitation: Without limiting the generality of any other provision of this Agreement, You acknowledge and agree as follows: (a) to the extent permitted under governing law, a Registry Operator will only be liable in cases of proven willful misconduct or gross negligence; (b) in no event will a Registry Operator be held liable for any indirect, consequential or incidental damages or loss of profits, whether contractual, based on tort (including negligence) or otherwise arising, resulting from or related to Registrations, DPML Blocks (defined in the Registry Terms and Conditions), or use of the SRS or the Registry Website, even if the Registry Operator has been advised of the possibility of such loss or damages, including but not limited to decisions taken by the Registry Operator to register or not to register a Generic Domain Name on the basis of information from the TMCH (defined in the Registry Terms and Conditions); (c) to the extent allowed under applicable law, a Registry Operator’s aggregate liability for damages will in any case be limited to the amounts specified in the Registry-Registrar Agreement, and no greater or other damages (such as any fees payable or paid by Webnames.ca in the context of any proceedings initiated against a decision by the Registry Operator to register or not to register a Generic Domain Name) may be claimed by You from the Registry Operator. For the purposes of this section 20, the term “Registry Operator” includes Donuts and each of the Registry Operator’s stockholders, directors, employees, members, subcontractors, the TMCH and each of their respective directors, agents and employees.

22. Indemnity by You: Without limiting the generality of any other provision of this Agreement, You will hold the Registry Operator harmless from claims filed or disputes initiated by third parties, and You will compensate the Registry Operator for any costs or expenses incurred or damages for which the Registry Operator may be held liable as a result of third parties taking action against the Registry Operator on the grounds that an Application for or the Registration, DPML Block, or use of the SLD (defined in the Registry Terms and Conditions) by You infringes the rights of a third party. For the purposes of this section 21, the term “Registry Operator” includes Donuts and each of the Registry Operator’s stockholders, directors, employees, members, subcontractors, the TMCH and each of their respective directors, agents and employees. This section 22 will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason.

23. Third Party Beneficiaries: Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary:

(a) Donuts and each Registry Operator are and will remain intended third party beneficiaries of this Agreement. You acknowledge that Donuts and each Registry Operator will rely on their third party beneficiary rights under this Agreement in agreeing to Webnames.ca being a registrar for Donuts TLDs and in providing services to You or for Your benefit. For greater certainty, You acknowledge and agree that this Agreement is for the benefit of Donuts and each Registry Operator but does not give rise to any obligations on the part of Donuts or any Registry Operator. Donuts and each Registry Operator may assign their respective rights and benefits under this Agreement to a subsequent registry operator of a Donuts TLD.

(b) Donuts and Registry Operators and their affiliates and their respective managers, directors, employees, contractors and agents (including the TMCH and the Auction Provider) are not parties to this Agreement.
