II. EXCLUSIVE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR DOMAINS & WEB HOSTING
1. REGISTRATION OF A NEW DOMAIN
1.1 The contractual relationship necessary for the registration of the respective domain is directly established between the customer and the respective domain allocation office or registrar. K-Tech Media acts as a mere intermediary in the relationship between the customer and the respective domain allocation office, without having any influence on the allocation of the domain.
1.2 The customer is fully responsible for ensuring that the requested domain does not infringe upon the rights of third parties.
1.3 The different top-level domains are each managed by independent organizations. Each of these organizations has different conditions for registration, administration, and resolution of domain disputes for their respective top-level domains and corresponding sub-level domains. If they are the subject of this contract, the relevant allocation conditions in their current version shall apply in addition to these General Terms and Conditions. In the case of .de domains, the DENIC domain terms and conditions, DENIC domain policies, and DENIC direct price list also apply. All of the aforementioned conditions are an integral part of this contract.
1.4 The registration of domains is carried out through an automated process whereby the data is transmitted to the respective registration authority. The registration authority operates on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning that the first registration received is granted. K-Tech Media cannot guarantee the allocation of an ordered domain.
1.5 The customer is obliged to fully cooperate in all actions necessary for the registration, transfer, or deletion of their domain. The customer is solely responsible for ensuring that a domain registered by them and the content transferred by them do not violate legal rights or infringe upon the rights of third parties. The customer undertakes not to offer domains or content of extremist (particularly right-wing extremist) nature or containing pornographic or commercially erotic offers. This also applies to linking to pages that contain such content. The sending of spam emails is prohibited, particularly the sending of unsolicited advertising. It is also prohibited to provide false sender data or disguise sender data when sending emails.
1.6 If the data to be provided for a domain according to the respective registration conditions proves to be incorrect and K-Tech Media cannot contact the customer using the provided data, K-Tech Media may have the domain deleted.
2.1 If third parties credibly demonstrate that the content of a website or the domain itself violates their rights, or if there are objective indications that laws are being violated through domains or content, K-Tech Media may block the website as long as the infringement or dispute with the third party over the infringement persists.
2.2 If the potential infringement is committed through a domain, K-Tech Media may also take measures to make the domain inaccessible. In cases where the infringement through a domain appears certain based on objective indications, K-Tech Media may terminate the contractual relationship without notice.
2.3 In the case of extremist, pornographic, or commercially erotic content, K-Tech Media may issue an immediate termination instead of blocking.
2.4 If the customer sends spam emails, K-Tech Media may temporarily block the mailboxes on the email server.
2.5 K-Tech Media may reject emails addressed to its customers based on objective criteria if there are facts justifying the belief that an email contains harmful software (viruses, worms, or trojans, etc.), if the sender information is false or obscured, or if it constitutes unsolicited or disguised commercial communication.
2.6 K-Tech Media's entitlement to remuneration continues as long as a service is blocked for the aforementioned reasons.
2.7 The entitlement to remuneration ceases if K-Tech Media terminates the contract without notice for the aforementioned reasons.
3. TERMINATION OF A CONTRACT
3.1 Deletion requests for domains require the signature of the domain owner.
3.2 If the customer does not request the deletion of a domain upon termination, K-Tech Media may return the domain to the relevant registry after the end of the contract and a reasonable period of time. K-Tech Media hereby informs that in this case, the customer may remain liable to the registry for compensation.
3.3 Alternatively, after a reasonable period of time, K-Tech Media may also initiate the deletion of the domain. The entitlement to remuneration from the customer of K-Tech Media continues until the domain is finally deleted.
3.4 If K-Tech Media terminates the contract due to default in payment or for a valid reason as outlined in Section II.2, K-Tech Media may initiate the deletion of the affected domains after a reasonable period of time, unless the customer provides other instructions. As long as the domain exists, the entitlement to remuneration from the customer of K-Tech Media is not extinguished.
