3. FEES AND PAYMENTS

(A) GENERAL TERMS, INCLUDING AUTOMATIC RENEWAL TERMS
You agree to pay any and all prices and fees due for Services purchased or obtained at this Site at the time you order the Services. Microvera Ltd. expressly reserves the right to change or modify its prices and fees at any time, and such changes or modifications shall be posted online at this Site and effective immediately without need for further notice to you. If you have purchased or obtained Services for a period of months or years, changes or modifications in prices and fees shall be effective when the Services in question come up for renewal as further described below.

(B) DOMAIN NAME RENEWAL TERMS

When you register a domain name, you will have two renewal options: (i) “Automatic Renewal”, and (ii) “Manual Renewal”:

  • Automatic Renewal. Automatic Renewal is the default setting. Microvera will automatically renew, for a period equivalent to the length of your original domain name registration, any domain name that is up for renewal and will take payment from the Payment Method you have on file with Microvera at Microvera’s then current rates.
  • Manual Renewal. If the automatic renewal is disabled for your domain, you have the responsibility of logging into the Domain Manager portion of your members area for that domain name and manually implementing the renewal by the expiration date (should you in fact want the domain name to be renewed). If you fail to manually implement the renewal before the expiration date, the domain name will expire and you will no longer have use of that name.

All renewals will be subject to the terms of this Agreement, as it may be amended from time to time, and you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement (as amended) for all renewed domains. Domain name renewals will be non-refundable. If for any reason Microvera is not able to take the payment from the Payment Method you have on file, and you fail to respond to our notices, your domain name registration will expire. It is your responsibility to keep your Payment Method information current, which includes the expiration date if you are using a credit card.
For ccTLD .dk you must renew no later than 41 days prior to the expiration date, or your domain name will be placed in non-renewal status.
For ccTLD .cz you must renew no later than 33 days, .de – 5 days, .ch and .fr – 3 days prior to the expiration date or your domain name will be placed in Redemption Grace Period (RGP) status. When the domain name is in Redemption Grace Period status, you can renew the domain name only by contacting Microvera via support ticket and requesting that the domain name be restored and renewed. You cannot renew the domain name in RGP status through your Domain Manager. If you fail to manually implement the renewal before the expiration date, the domain name will be cancelled and you will no longer have use of that name.
You agree that Microvera will not be responsible for cancelled domain names that you fail to renew, either automatically or manually in the timeframes indicated in this Agreement. In any case, if you fail to renew your domain name in a timely fashion, additional charges may apply. If you signed up for privacy services, or any other similar service, with your domain name registration, these services will automatically be renewed when your domain name registration is up for renewal, and you will incur the applicable additional renewal fee unless you cancel in advance.
If you fail to renew your domain name in the timeframes indicated in this Agreement, your domain name will be placed on Hold and flagged for deletion. You will then have a 30-day Redemption Grace Period during which you may pay Microvera Ltd. a Redemption fee and redeem your domain name. The redemption fee of the most domains currently is $80.00 USD + Renewal Fee + VAT, and is subject to change under the terms of this Agreement. If you do not redeem your domain name prior to the end of the Registry’s Redemption Grace Period the Registry will release your name and it will become available for registration. For certain ccTLDs (.ru, .dk, .hu, .nu, .pl and .se) there is no Redemption Grace Period.
Redemption Grace Periods vary for different ccTLDs.

(C) FREE PRODUCT TERMS

In the event you are provided with free products with the registration of a domain name, you acknowledge and agree that such free products will only be available with a valid purchase and may be terminated in the event the domain name is deleted or cancelled.
For free domain names, you acknowledge and agree that you may not change the account associated with such free domain for the first five (5) days after registration.
In the event a free domain name is offered with the registration of another domain and if the paid domain name registered fails, then we may, in its sole discretion, either delete the registration of the free domain or refund the difference between the amount paid and the value of the free domain. Failed registrations associated with promotional offers may result in the deletion of the free or discounted item or an adjustment between the registered domain price and the value of the discounted item, in our sole discretion.

4. TERM OF AGREEMENT; TRANSFERS; DOMAIN TASTING

The term of this Agreement shall continue in full force and effect as long as you have any domain name registered through Microvera You agree that you will not transfer any domain name registered through Microvera to another domain name registrar during the first sixty (60) days after its initial registration date. You further agree that you will not engage in “domain tasting” by using the five (5) day grace period in which a registrant may choose to cancel a domain name and get a full refund of the registration fee as a vehicle to test the marketability or viability of a domain name. If Microvera determines (which determination shall be made by Microvera in its sole and absolute discretion) that you have been engaging in “domain tasting”, then Microvera reserves the right to (a) charge you a small fee (which shall be deducted from any refund issued) or (b) refuse your cancellation/refund request altogether.
Microvera will not charge you a fee if Microvera cancels your domain name during the five (5) day grace period due to fraud or other activity outside of your control.
