TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE – LACTLD UNIFIED DOMAIN SEARCH ENGINE
When using LACTLD Unified Domain Search Engine, users agree to these Terms and Conditions of Use.
1. LACTLD is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Uruguay and authorized to operate by the Ministry of Foreign Relations of Uruguay. Its purpose is, amongst other things and according to its statutes, to represent the interests of the region in relation to domain names, promote the integration of Latin America and the Caribbean, and act as a link for cooperation and the exchange of experiences and information among the Top Level Domains Administrators in the region.
2. This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions for the use of the services provided by “LACTLD Unified Domain Search Engine” (hereinafter, “BUD” or “the Search Engine”).
3. All users interested in using the services provided by the Search Engine must abide by these terms and conditions.
4. LACTLD is commissioning “LACTLD Unified Domain Search Engine” (BUD, by its Spanish acronym), a service that allows users to find out about the availability for registration of domain names in participating ccTLDs. Users may then decide to register an available domain or, if unavailable, users may see public information about an already registered domain in the corresponding ccTLD’s website. Such information is provided by the ccTLDs and LACTLD is not liable for it, nor does it manage any part of it.
5. This Search Engine is an additional tool for verifying the availability of domain names in participating ccTLDs. It facilitates the provision of data in a unified and comprehensive manner within a single digital location.
6. LACTLD Search Engine receives a query from a user and, after automatically forwarding it to all participant ccTLDs, it produces an answer on whether the queried domain is available for registration. If it is not, it provides the option to check the public and available information of the registered domain.
7. Access to the Search Engine and the information it provides is free of charge. LACTLD reserves the right to charge for this service and/or other features that it may offer in the future.
8. LACTLD provides the Search Engine service on an “as is” and “as available” basis. LACTLD shall not be liable for nor does it guarantee the quality of the information provided by the ccTLD or its temporary or permanent unavailability. Therefore, it does not guarantee that the service or its usage may operate absolutely seamlessly. LACTLD makes no warranty or guarantee, express or implied, including, but not limited to, of fitness or usage for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
10. The decision to register a domain in a ccTLD, even when it arises from a query in the Search Engine, is ultimately made by the potential registrant and the ccTLD who manages domain name registrations.
11. Users acknowledge that the information published by ccTLDs is subject to the rules of each Registry, in accordance with its own policy and local legislation.
12. LACTLD is not responsible for any of the actions taken by participating ccTLDs in relation to their response time or their policy on the cancellation of domain name registrations.
13. Moreover, LACTLD is not responsible for any further use of the information obtained by users through the BUD.
14. This Agreement shall be governed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay.
15. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising under these Terms and Conditions shall be first solved by the Parties through mutual understanding. Where this is not possible, the Parties agree to request the intervention of the Center for Conciliation and Arbitration of the Uruguayan Chamber of Commerce in accordance with the provisions of the Center's Conciliation Regulation. If these disputes, disagreements or controversies cannot be resolved, they shall be settled through arbitration, assigning three arbitrators, and complying with the provisions set forth in the Center's Arbitration Regulation.
