A change of registrars for the domain is not possible during the first 60 days after initial registration of the domain with the registrar. In individual cases this may lead to restrictions for the change between different hosting providers. For disputes over the rights to domains, a worldwide Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) has been developed by ICANN and adopted by all accredited registrars. Domain holder hereby agrees that all disputes on the rights to domains, especially arising out of trademarks, names or other intellectual property rights, shall be governed by the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) which can be found at http://www.icann.org/udrp/udrp-policy-24oct99.htm In the administrative proceeding under UDRP initiated by the domain holder or a third person it is the domain holder's responsibility to conduct the proceedings and defend his rights. 

Domain holder guarantees that the contact data given by him are accurate and complete. He shall immediately inform his provider (who will inform Unshadowed) on any updates and respond within fifteen calendar days to inquiries, on request guaranteeing up-to-date accuracy and completeness.
