Welcome to Catched!
Changes to the Terms
We may change these Terms from time to time. All changes are effective immediately when we post them. However, any changes to the dispute resolution provisions in Governing Law will not apply to any disputes the parties have actual notice about on or before the date the change is posted on the Website. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of changes to these Terms means that you accept and agree to those changes.
Unless otherwise stated, we and/or our licensors own the intellectual property rights for all material on the Website. You may access this intellectual property from the Website for your own personal use, subject to these Terms.
With respect to the Website, you must not:
Sell, rent or sub-license material
Reproduce, duplicate or copy material
Certain areas of our Website offer an opportunity for users to post and exchange opinions and information (collectively, the “Comments”). We do not filter, edit, publish or review the Comments prior to their posting on our Website. Comments do not reflect our, or our agents’ or affiliates’, views and opinions. Comments reflect the views and opinions of those who posted them. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we will not be liable for any damages, costs or expenses caused and/or suffered as a result of any use, and/or posting, and/or appearance, of the Comments on our Website.
We reserve the right to monitor all Comments and to remove any Comments which we, in our sole discretion, consider inappropriate, offensive or a breach of these Terms.
You represent and warrant that:
You are entitled to post the Comments on our Website and have all necessary rights, licenses and consents to do so;
The Comments do not infringe on any intellectual property right, including without limitation, the copyright, patent or trademark of any third party;
The Comments do not contain any defamatory, libelous, offensive, indecent or otherwise unlawful material, including material which is an invasion of privacy;
The Comments will not be used to solicit or promote business, or to carry on commercial or unlawful activity.
You hereby grant us a non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, edit, and authorize others to use, reproduce and edit, any of your Comments in any and all forms, formats or media.
In order to avoid fraud, and respect order in the auctions, certain functions of the Website may not be accessible by new users on the number of Backorders (defined below) and the amount of bids. All users must verify their accounts in order to participate in an auction. In addition (a) we may require you to provide additional information to verify your identity, such as passports, driver's licenses or similar documents, and (b) to review and verify this information as many times as we deem necessary. Failure to verify your identity as requested by us, or if you provide false information in response to our requests or in your account, we may terminate your account with us.
A “Backorder” is a request by you to us to us to notify you that a listing of a domain you are interested in acquiring is about to expire. We will try to register that domain as soon as it is available. We will not charge you to make a Backorder request, but if the domain which is the subject of the Backorder request becomes available and is registered, you must pay us for it. By making a request for a Backorder, a binding contract is created in which you agree to pay us the price of such registered domain. The domain will be transferred to your Edomains account once payment for such domain has been verified.
If there is more than one party interested in the same domain, the domain will be put in public auction for a period of five (5) days. The winner of the auction will be the party offering the highest price for the domain. This party will be obligated to pay the amount offered.
We reserve the right (a) to cancel any fraudulent bid, and (b) also reserves the right to cancel the auction at any time and re-auction a domain if we do not receive full payment.
We reserve the right to suspend any bid or auction, even if payment is received, for reasons we deem exceptional in our sole discretion. In such event, monies involved in the bid will be returned to you.
The auction bid increment is the amount over the last valid bid the next bid has to be in order to be accepted by the system. This prevents non-serious counterbidding which causes auctions to go on for an unreasonable amount of time. Here is the current structure for bid increments:
$0-$99: $5 bid increments
$100-$199: $10 bid increments
$200-$499: $20 bid increments
$500-$999: $50 bid increments
$1000 and up: $100 bid increments
Payments must be made within 24 hours after the end of the auction. If you leave a saved debit or credit card, it will be charged automatically after 24 hours. If you did not leave a saved debit or credit card, then, after 24 hours, you will have 7 days to pay for the domain. We will put your account on hold until payment is received. If after 7 days, payment is not received, your account may be terminated and terms concerning non-payment below will apply.
You are required to pay for all Backorders and auctions. We reserve the right to pursue all legal remedies to collect any unpaid amounts from you directly or through third parties. Non-payment means your right to use your Edomains.com and catched.com accounts, and all associated services, will be terminated.
If you do not pay for the domain you purchased in the auction, we reserve the right to place that domain back in auction, sale the domains to second high bidder or return it to the registrar.
If a domain has unpaid status, Edomains may change the DNS and set the name in parking until payment of the invoice is received.
